Mackenzie is growing like a weed, she loves to sing, she can see the ABC song (it is so funny we will be just about anywhere and she will just bust out singing the song). She is so cute and growing up way to fast.

Garrett is almost 6 months, he is almost sitting up by himself, he is also growing like a weed too. He loves Elmo. He loves to stick out is tongue!!! He is not to sure about this eating baby food thing yet but he needs to because he is starting to wake up in the middle of the night hungry.

Ryan and I are do good, just very busy with the little ones, but loving every minute of it.

Garrett Vaughan Malik




video
Sorry I have not posted in a long time, but I have been busy getting ready for our little boy to arrive. We started potty training Mackenzie in the middle of January, she is doing really good. I would not say she is totally potty trained but she is very close. She is just now telling us on a regular basis that she needs to go potty. We are so very proud of our little girl, she is growing up way to fast.

So now to introduce our new member of our family, Garrett Vaughan Malik was born on March 26, 2009 at 10:33 pm. He was 6 lbs and 8 ozs and 20 3/4 in long. He has brown hair and he is a great little baby.

IT IS A BOY!!!!

Well it is official, I had my ultrasound on November 18. I begged my doctor to get me in the day of my appointment, so he had his nurse check and the had a opening at 4pm so I took it. We were so excited to find out what we were having.
As soon as the doppler met my belly it was there, Ryan said I think I know what we are having, the tech acted like she didn't hear him, but I am pretty sure she did. She continued on with the ultrasound and when she let me empty my bladder, she asked if we wanted to know the sex of the baby. Ryan said I think we already know, and she said oh really what makes you think that, and Ryan said that as soon as the doppler met the belly it was right there.
She then said OK well we will go and make sure you guys saw right. Sure enough when she went to check she said "IT IS A BOY!!!"

Long Time NO Post


I know I have been really bad at posting on my blog. I hope to be better in the future. We are all doing really good. We have some really EXCITING NEWS!!! Mackenzie is going to be a BIG SISTER!!! We are having another baby in April. April 7, 2009 is my due date to be exact. We will hopefully find out what we are having before Thanksgiving so look for another update then.
Mackenzie is getting really big and she is talking a lot more. She tries to say what ever word you ask her to but she sometimes doesn't get it out right. She is such a sweet girl and we don't know what we would do with out her.
Mackenzie also has graduated to a BIG GIRL BED and she is doing pretty well in it. She does really good at bed time but nap time is a little more challenging. She has been in it since last Friday so just over a week, I am sure once she gets use to it she will be just fine. I will try to post pictures soon but my camera doesn't want to work with me right now.

SUMMER

Marissa & I in the pool at Grandma and Grandpa Malik's


We have had a great summer so far. I love to be outside and I love my pool, and my grandma Roxy has a pool at her house too. So pretty much no matter where I am I have a pool there. My cousin Marissa was here at the end of June and beginning of July and we had fun at grandma and grandpa Malik's house swimming in the pool. We also had a daddy's aunts and uncles here over the 4th we went to the casino over the 4th and went to fireworks. I loved the fireworks but it got a little old after a while. I just went to the doctor for my 18 month check-up and I weigh 28 pounds, and I am 34 ins long. My mommy and daddy have no idea where I am getting the height from but I am that tall and that is just how it is.

Sorry

Mommy & Mackenzie on Mother's Day for her dedication
Mackenzie giving Marissa a kiss!!

I have been really bad about blogging. We have been really busy the past few months. Mackenzie keeps me very busy. She loves to go outside, and get into any trouble she can get her hands on. Some bad news o report in April I had a miscarriage. We are doing fine, we will try again, the doctor said it was just my body getting rid of a unhealthy pregnancy, he said the baby didn't even form.

Daddy redid out deck so we now have a very nice deck to play out on and entertain on also.

Auntie Angie and Marissa from Texas have come to visit us at least once a month, that has been very fun to have the cousins together so they can play.

Mackenzie was dedicated to the Lord on Mother's Day so that was a very special day for us. For Father's Day we went to the Como zoo and had a BBQ at Grammy and Grandpa Malik's house.

Mackenzie is starting to show her true self and she is talking a little more each day. these are the words she normally says are : Ma Ma,Mom, Da Da, Daddy, Kitty, Doggie, Teddy, All Done, Ball, Ya Ya, Pa Pa, Veggies. She knows a few sounds she knows what a dog, cat and cow say. She can sign the word please and she is shaking her head for yes and no. She is getting so big and growing up way to fast. Her favorite show to watch on TV when we let her is Veggie Tales. I have to tell a story I have been going to garage sales. We went to this one garage sale and they had little key chains the were Veggie Tales characters. I showed them to her and her eyes got really big and she grabbed them, I asked her if she wanted them and she said Yay. So we went to pay for them and she would not let go of the bag that they were in and so we paid for them and left and went to another garage sale and I told her that she would have to leave them in the car and that was not going to happen she was holding on them so tight her hands were turning purple. I guess she loves the Veggie Tales.

UPDATE

Mackenzie turned 1 in January. She is now walking all by herself with no help. She is loves to play with her baby doll, she carries her all around the house and she is quite the little mother to her. She loves to read books, she will sit on the floor and cross her ankles and put the book on her lap and turn pages one by one it is so cute. ( I will post a picture the next time she does it.) She does give hugs and kisses to people, she is very selective on who she gives them to. Her words that she says are Ma-Ma, Da-Da, Doggy, Kitty and Teddy. (which is Gramma and Grandpa Malik's dog name) She is getting so big and her personalty is really coming out. She is totally a gift from God. We are enjoying seeing her grow up, but it does go by really fast.


I just started selling Tastefully Simple. If anyone is interested in having a party or would like to order anything, please let me know and I would love to help you out. I also stay home with Mackenzie and I love it, I wouldn't trade it for anything.
Ryan is still working at NTM Inc. He loves being a daddy and he is a wonderful husband, I could not ask for a better guy. Mackenzie loves her daddy, she always saying DA-DA .


We took a family vacation to Florida in the beginning of February. It was very nice to get away and of course it was nice weather. It was between 70 and 80 everyday, the day before we left it rained but other than that the weather was great. We flew in to Orlando and stayed at a timeshare for 3 nights and then we drove down to Daytona Beach and stayed 4 nights on the beach. It was beautiful and so relaxing. Mackenzie loved the beach. Mackenzie and I buried Ryan in the sand, I will post pictures when I get them developed. Mackenzie loved the pools at the timeshares. When we were in Daytona Beach, we went to a race track amusement park and Ryan drove dragster and he finished the finish line at 3.159 seconds. The thing I chose to do was to go to the outlet malls, but I was very disappointed that I didn't find anything but it was probably for the better because we didn't have much room in our suitcases.
