Christmas Picture Overload!

So, we are terrible bloggers! We started this as a way to share photos with our family and friends across the country, but in order to do that we need to actually post them! So sorry!

Makenna had an amazing first Christmas. It was so much fun to watch her eyes light up when she saw all her loved ones around and all of her new toys. She was especially excited about her Fisher Price barn! We spent Christmas morning at our home opening gifts from Santa, spent a few hours with Nicki's family and the afternoon and evening with the Lyon family. The following is just a glimpse into our Christmas festivities. We are so blessed to have so many friends and family members around! Merry (late) Christmas and Happy New Year!

For those of you who didn't get a Christmas card:

Just a quick post to share some of our favorite pictures from our vacation to Seattle. Enjoy!

Beautiful view of Seattle

Makenna was so good traveling!

Makenna is 6 Months Old!!

It's hard to believe that Makenna is already 6 months old. She is growing up so fast! We tried to have a photo shoot in the front yard to get some good 6 month pictures but she refused to smile.

We enjoyed a crazy, and rainy, 4th of July with the Seabold family. Makenna was so patriotic! Check out the American flag dress (and Dad's sweet hat)...

Makenna is also eating baby food now, like a big girl. She is still kinda messy, but it is alot of fun!

Next week we go out to Seattle for family vacation/reunion...we will post pictures of the trip when we return. Please pray Makenna is a good traveler for us! :)

5 Months

Pete is really bad at updating this blog so I thought I would add some recent pictures of Makenna. She is now 5 months old--it is amazing how fast she is growing up!!! At her last doctor's appointment (4 mo, 2 wks) she weighed in at a hefty 15 pounds and 25 1/2 inches long!

Last weekend I had the honor to be in my beautiful cousin Ashley's wedding. Of course, Makenna just had to show up mom and look ADORABLE!! We got lots of compliments on the flower :)

To begin this update I would like to say that I am a giant blog-writing failure. I am working on my lack of blog posts and hope that in the future I will update more than once every two months. Now then, on to Makenna!

Since our last update, Makenna recieved her bumbo in the mail...

As you can see, between the bumbo and her "keys", she is pretty content with life, even though the devil is looking over her shoulder (oh, thats my cat? same thing). She has been sitting for longer periods of time each week and she seems to enjoy it. I think they look pretty comfortable myself, which leads me to believe there may be a market for adult bumbos. Ok, probably not, but anyways...

I recently purchased the MLB Extra Innings package so that I could watch all the Mariners games. This allows for great father daughter time. As you can see below, Makenna loves watching the games with me! This is probably my favorite picture ever taken of any living thing in the history of mankind...

Finally, there is a little video taken about a month ago when Makenna first began to smile. Of course, once the camera came out, she stopped smiling immediately. I think there might be one smile in there somewhere...

Easter Fun!

From St. Patricks Day to Easter...we apologize for the lack of updates, but it seems as though we are more busy now that we have a child. Imagine that! Easter arrived, a few days after Makenna was officially 3 months old, and she received her first gifts from the Easter Bunny. Surprisingly, she didn't pay attention to any of it. But at least her parents enjoyed giving it to her!

The night before Easter we went to Grandma and Grandpa Seabolds house to dye eggs (and eat 3 pounds of sugar cookies). As you can see in the picure, Nicki and Makenna are pretty good at designing their eggs and dad...well...uses stickers. After dying all those eggs it was time for bed to dream about the arrival of the easter bunny and the fantastic easter dress that awaited...

As you can see, Makenna is pretty happy in the pictures. That may be because she cried through the whole church service (we were sitting a little close to the percussion section) and she was happy to be out of there. But it is more likely because of the amazing easter outfit that mom spent countless hours putting together :) Overall, Makenna's first easter was great!
