Makayla had Addison over to play the other day. It was her first time having a friend over… and both the little girls did wonderful! They made me laugh so hard with all of their silliness. There was screaming, laughing, fighting over toys, and just general, enjoyable little kid chaos.
Talking to each other on their cell phones
exchanging shoes playing with dollies
Thanks for coming to play, Addison!

It’s been really slow since having everyone here for Christmas so the other day we took Makayla to Chuck E Cheese’s and she loved it!
She loved pulling the tickets out
Other Cute Pictures:
Makayla has started picking up on so many things. I have found her doing stuff that I do even though I never showed her how. She has:
climbed into and sat in a dining room chair
tried to put my keys into the door’s lock
wiped her face off with a napkin
tried to sniff different things
took the remote and pointed it at the t.v.
gave me a big hug
I gave her the ball but she got up into the chair and then sat all by herself! Now she won’t quit doing it!

She has learned to climb onto the bed!
My big walker follows me all over the house now!
has six teeth
has said “baby” , “doggie” , “bye” and more that I think sound like some words but can’t say for sure
blows on my belly all the time
points to what she wants
Climbs anything and everything (high-chair, bed, couch, chairs, walker, mommy, etc)

-Just a couple days short of her 10 month b-day Makayla started walking! She’s now got five teeth, loves to talk, is getting a little shy, says “ma-ma” when she’s upset, gives kisses and is the joy of my life! She was a little witch for Halloween!
Also, Brandon and I had the wonderful opportunity to be sealed to each other and Makayla. It was an amazing experience!
