I know I have been very bad at posting on my blog. I am going to set a reminder in my cell phone each week to blog otherwise it will be forever till the next post.

What have we been up to???

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.

Here are some things we did this summer::

We loved going to parks!!!
We got a swingset for the backyard!!!
We went to Como Zoo a few times!!!
My sister Liz and her girls came to visit!!

We went to the splash pad a few times with friends!!!
We went camping up north with my sister family and my family at my uncles house!!!

Garrett Vaughan Malik

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.
