What have we done lately??

This month hasn't been to eventful. In terms of McKenna and her development she is now 14 months. Where has the time gone? Can gets into everything, and I mean everything! She knows when she is doing something she isn't supposed to be doing. She understands me amazingly well. I don't know how kids at this age usually are, but she seems awfully smart to me. and I'm not just saying that because I'm her mom. She is to smart for her little age. She is on the go from the time she gets up in the morning, which is 8:00am btw, to the time her head this the mattress at night, which is 8:00pm. This girl loves her sleep. She still take 2 naps per day and can range from 1 hour to 2 hours. Its wonderful. She is starting to climb onto things and gets in to things, such as suitcases and laundry baskets. She can say Mommy, Daddy, hot, outside, no, yes, cheese, hi, bye, eat, night night. She will also copy what you say and what you do almost exactly. She has 8 teeth. She is finally starting to go to bed without her bottle. She loves going through my purse and snacking on my gum with the wrapper still on. She is a biter. (any ideas on how to stop that habit?) She is definitely a people watcher and looks at everything. She will stick her arms and legs into her clothes now and will pull her shirt off her head. Helps in getting her dressed and undressed. She LOVES her shopping cart. She will push it all around putting different items in it, usually her diapers. I can't really think of anything else, she has stolen my brain and memory. I just can believe how big she is and how much she has grown mentally and how much she can do. I didn't think her little brain could hold so much. I love her!

I don't usually let her run around naked because I don't want any accidents to happen on the floor, but I thought....why not? She would run from the front room to her bed room and back again and smalls would follow her smelling her behind. It was quite cute.

McKenna loves to rub her food stained hands through her hair, so I thought this might do the trick! But she HATES and I mean hates having things on her head so it didn't last long. She may look happy here, but she was really miserable.

Lately she has been really mesmerized with the TV. She will stare at it for a few minutes. Its quite funny. I'm gonna have to start paying attention to what she is watching here in a little bit.

This picture is a little dark but you can see her on the far left side of the picture staring at the TV.

Yeah for Halloween!! This year is really her first Halloween. Last year she was just 2 1/2 months. This year she(really I, hehe) can enjoy it more plus I get to eat some candy! What could be better? This year she is Dorothy. I think she looks pretty cute. She wouldn't hold still long enough to take a picture, so Tucker had to hold her down for me.

This was at the my old wards Trunk or Treat. She didn't like Jason very well, plus I just took a piece of candy away from her. I know, i'm a terrible mom.

Doing what she does best, getting into everything!

I just think this is the funniest picture. She had just woken up for a nap and was resting on my moms shoulder. She was trying not to smile at me and was making just these funny faces. I think I'm the only one who thought it was funny. I guess its the mom in me.

A few weeks ago we got on a plane and heading to Indiana for Tuckers 10 year HS reunion. She did awesome on the planes. She was awake the whole way there and fell asleep as we were landing in Indiana. We had to get up at 5:30am to get to our plane in time. She was a trooper. Just looked out the window pretty much the whole way there. And she slept the whole way home on the plane. Tucker enjoyed his reunion and seeing all his old friends. There won't be a post of that part, because I didn't take any pictures. Silly me!

Lately she will put her blanket over her head in the car when she is trying to sleep. She is a funny girl.

While we were in Indiana, we stayed at Tucker's brothers house. They have stairs. Yeah for me! She LOVED the stairs. She even fell down them when no one was watching her and hit her head on the nice and hard floor at the bottom. Even after that, she still continued to climb them.

Tuckers brother has a dog and Mckenna decided it would be fun to climb into the cage. I did open the door, but she climbed in and closed the door.

We went to the Sacramento Zoo on free day. We had a fun time. Here are just a few pictures.

And NO blog would be complete without my smallers! I love her too!
