At The Park

We have a lovely park at the end of our block.  We have gone there several times.  Now that Makenna is almost six months (!) she is finding that she can actually interact with her surroundings while she is at the park.  I think we'll make this a regular destination.

We went to the park today!  Makenna enjoyed the baby swing.

sort of

The little girl in the background wanted to fight Makenna for a turn on the swing.  The nice lady had to hold her back.  I decided to take Makenna out of the swing to avoid any fist fights at the playground.

Then, we went to the sand box.

"Hmmm... what's this grainy, beige substance?"

"I think I kind of like how this feels."

"Let me see how it tastes...."

"It's not milk, but it has a delightfully crunchy texture."

Then, we went to sit on the grass and practice our sitting skills.

A little bit leany and toppley...

but she's almost got it!

New Visitors

Last weekend, Makenna had two special visitors.  First, Auntie Ayaba came down from San Francisco to visit.


Yep, she came to visit and Makenna had so much fun playing with her.  I had to rip her away so that she could take naps, because Ayaba has lots of energy and likes to play with babies (She's a doctor who delivers babies, so she's quite familiar)!

Then Great Grandad came to visit.  Makenna was quite taken with him.  We told her that Great Grandad had been a prison warden...

So she straightened up and was on her best behavior!

Makenna so enjoyed meeting these two new people!

Oh.  And we had one more visitor this week.  A very familiar visitor- Grandpa!
Makenna showed Grandpa her new skill- bouncing!

Makenna's First Easter

Makenna had a great first Easter!  The weather was beautiful and the Easter Bunny came to bring her lots of lovely gifts.  We had a BBQ with family and we had way too much food!  It was a wonderful day.
