8 Months Old Today

McKenna is eight months old today! In honor of this occasion she decided to make her first big mess! Check out the picture, she's even laughing about it! While my back was turned she pulled her sweet potatoes onto the floor. Her big brother saw it happen and he took the opportunity to correct her and explain that you get "discaplin" when you do things like that! Then he told me to put her in time-out! I can tell already that Christian is going to be a great tattle tale!

McKenna also marked this day with the arrival of her second tooth! I was actually really excited to see it because she was up five times last night. Yes, five times. I thought I was going to loose my mind. She just cried and wanted to be held. I knew something was wrong and almost took her to the doctor today to have her ears checked, but then the tooth showed up. Hopefully tonight will be a little more pleasant!
Just a few little McKenna facts:
-Weighs exactly 19lbs
-Loves to play with her toes
-Used to hold her hands together all the time and now she's stopped that ( was so cute)
-Sits up quite well and can even catch herself when she starts falling backward
-Gives very wet kisses
-Loves to grab noses and ears. Don't even think about wearing earrings!
-Can hold a bottle by herself
-Favorite food is definitely bananas
-Flips from back to stomach and then screams
-Won't flip off of her stomach because she's too busy pitching a fit (so her brother "saves" her)
-Loves to hang out in her jumperoo!!!!
-Recognizes her name
-Says "dada" on command. Says "sss" and "gaga"
-She adores her binkie! She pulls it out of her mouth to "talk" and then puts it back in herself.
-Spends a lot of time "talking" to her binkie!
-Loves to turn her head around in the car and watch me while I'm driving. Seriously, it's the cutest thing to look back and see her neck all twisted around just so she can keep an eye on me. I've got to get a picture of it!
Happy 8 Months my sweet Kenna girl! We love you so much!!

that is so funny--Christian will tattle until she's older, and then they'll just get into trouble together!
She is such a sweetie with a gorgeous smile!

Sophie loves to hold her hands now, and even though she obviously doesn't talk yet, she has cried the words "Mama" and "No, no!" :)

I love that McKenna will take out her binki and talk to it, that's SO cute! :)
