Last weekend was a little crazy but fun none the less. Mailey's umbilical cord stump fell off when she was about a week and half old, and she got to have her first soak in the tub kind of bath. She loved it! Mailey also was back to her birth weight by her two week birthday and even passed it by 3 ounces! She had lost so much weight initially, she dropped from 6lbs 5oz to 5lbs 11oz and I was really worried about her gaining weight back fast enough. I was so happy when she made it back to her birth weight and is now growing like a weed! I weighed her yesterday and she was 6lbs 12oz and has also grown an inch in two and a half weeks!
Mailey spent most of her weekend getting to know many important people in her life. Thursday Alice, Libby and Casen joined us for a visit.
Sunday she met Great Grandma Dorothy (Gram) for the first time. Gram has been out of town since she was born and got to meet her when she was two weeks old!
Saturday, she also got to meet her cousin's Ally,
Jared and Carys too. Carys wasn't interested in pictures. She was more interested in playing with Makenna.
We watched Jared's t-ball game in 80 degree weather. It was beautiful out and the game was so fun! Jared provides some great comedic relief! I didn't get to watch the whole game because my mom, the girls and I went to a baby shower, but I can't wait to watch a whole game soon. It should be pretty entertaining! Hopefully we'll get more days with good weather!
Mailey spent pretty much the whole weekend in someones arms. It must be a hard life being passed around and sleeping all day!
Makenna was Papa's big helper with yard work and in the garden after the game. She LOVES helping my dad and being outside so it is a win, win to get to do both together. My dad had fun too! He had opened a package of seeds and sprinkled them around in the garden while she watched. Well, he left another package in Makenna's reach and when he wasn't looking she had ripped a package of radish seeds and dumped them all over the yard. LOL! It should be interesting to see what happens to their yard this summer.
Watering the garden! Whenever Makenna works outside with my dad she asks to wear a hat like him to. It is really funny to see her toddler sized head in an adult sized hat.
After yard work was finished, she was rewarded with Bubbles and the first BBQ of the season!
Sunday was another gorgeous day and we spent most of our afternoon playing outside in my parents yard! My parents have accumulated a bunch of awesome outside toys and they have a fenced yard so if we want to be outside, I like to take Makenna there to play. I know she will have fun and be safe there.
We also finished pictures for Mailey's birth announcement with these two beautiful pictures of our girls! Keep a look out in the mail for one coming your way hopefully soon!
