New things

Alternate title for this post: “Lots of photos of Mackenzie. Because she’s pretty stinkin’ cute. And because I haven’t posted enough photos of late, according to some doting relatives.”

That would be a very long title. So, “New Things” it is. :)

Bumbo! A fun baby seat given to us by my co-worker (in “Smuggy green” of course). Mackenzie loves to watch me work, fold clothes, cook dinner, etc. So this little seat will be perfect.

Look closely and you will see a laptop cord and a Qtip for Kenzie. So you might say this photo represents my life: juggling work and a baby. Yeah. I could probably end the post right there, but there are more photos new things, so moving right along…

Mackenzie’s first luau. She is fond of new faces and fortunately I have lots of friends who are fond of babies!

Her first bath. Ok, no not really… but it *was* the first time we’d taken photos of her after a bath. So that’s a new thing, right? Right? ;)

Giving our awesome double (long story) jogging stroller a spin.

Our walk was not without its mishaps.

Notice how there is no front wheel in that photo? Before going on our second walk in the stroller, I keenly observed that all three wheels were flat.

I know what you’re thinking, but the answer is no. The gas station air pump won’t work. Even though it very nearly works, that doesn’t count. (Apparently).

No worries, though… Daddy to the rescue.

And finally, yet another “new thing” made blogworthy because of the cute baby featured in the photo. A hat from Great Aunt Robin! :)

Because I know you are wondering: Although people DO steal stuff from the Speedway down the block and on occasion are hunted down by searchlight in the middle of the night…. fortunately, people do NOT steal your double (long story) jog stroller if you are a complete space-case and leave it outside on your front walkway all night until kind neighbors point it out the next morning store the stroller outside.

    HaHa! Loved this post! At least it was the stroller you left and not the baby. After #5 and 6 were born there were a couple of times we all got in the car to run an errand before remembering the baby was still in the house!

    I’ll take the bait…what’s the long story about the Bob?

  3. Fun!

    You know I’m a sucker for photos, so the more the better. :)

    Thanks for the update. :)

    Is the double stroller a subtle hint that you’re expecting another addition to your family?

    the bumbo is the greatest invention!! And the double stroller is a must. If you are ever going to have 2 kids, why have a single stroller. They’re too expensive to only have for a year or two. I love the picts of Mckenzie. She is so sweet. Do you think I could have her?? Just let me know if you ever get sick of her. :)
