So summer is deffinitly here in Texas. Heat index of 110! I wanted to share some pics of Mackenzie's love for water! I also wanted to show her playroom since I haven't yet. We are still staying busy here. Matt's trip to Colombia is booked for September 25th. So we are trying to get ready for that. September looks to be a busy month in the Allphin household!

It's My Party!

So yes I know its been like 3 months since my last post. I'm not very good at this blog thing. Mackenzie is growing so much each day. She turned one on July 6th and I swear she had a week celebration! My sister came into town as well as my aunt Angelia and we just had a great time. Her birthday party was phenomenal! I now understand the effects of sugar on a child! Thank you to all who came. Matt and I created a playroom for Mackenzie, which I will post pictures soon, and she just loves to play in it. We are still not walking but close. I was a very late walker so I'm guessing she's taking after me. She is a very easy going baby and likes to do things in her own time! She deffinitly looks like daddy and dada is still her favorite word. We have gotten LaLa (thanks to Lauren), mommy, and nana but currently she just like to point at everything and have you tell her what it is. She is getting more teeth every day, I think we are up to 10 maybe? Matt and I have been staying busy with work and what not. Right now he is scheduled to leave for Colombia in Oct. but that seems to change daily. Our summer so far has been hot and humid but we are enjoying it. This weekend Lauren and I are going to see Laday Gaga and then the following weekend we are taking Mackenzie to Birmngham for my 10 year reunion. I can't wait to see my girls!! And for anyone who doesn't know by now, my sister is having a boy, Ty Daniel and is due in Oct. I can't wait to have a nephew. Other then that life is good. We have a few more concerts this summer and I'm hoping to make a trip in the fall to Chicago to see the Reid's! Hopefully I will be better at keeping the blog up!

Spring 2010

We have been one busy family! My 9 month old is all over the place! She is beginning to crawl, well backwards that is! So we know she is going to be on the move. She is loving trying to pull herself up and is just so ancy to get somewhere! Dada is officially her first word and she seems to want to say anything but moma. Oh well. We have had so much going on in the past couple months. As you know my sister got married in Jan, and is now expecting in October! We are so excited to have a neice/nephew for Mackenzie to play with. We took a trip back in March to MS to visit Mimi and Pop and Mackenzie met her boyfriend Gray. We had such a good time and got some great pictures. All of our weekends seem to be filled and we are just hoping soon for some time to relax. We have been enjoying the great Texas weather but not sure if we are ready for our hot summers, guess we will be at the pool!

6 Months Already

I can not believe that Mackenzie is already 6 months! It's been an interesting past month or so. Mackenzie got her first tooth on New Year's day! Feet, hands, you name it stay in her mouth. We had a great trip to Hawaii for Aunt Mar's wedding. Mackenzie was awesome on the planes, never one cry. We got so many complimants on what a good baby she was. She loved the sand and the ocean, so much in fact I think she will be spending summers in Hawaii with Uncle Danny and Aunt Mar. She is working really hard on sitting up, she does it for about 10-15 mintues at a time until she topples over! She has such a personality now. She really enjoys grabbing Matt's face on his cheeks and licking him, its quite cute! Today was a great day, Mackenzie did full body paint at school and then her newest friend, Brinley, was born today and we can't wait to meet her. We are hoping that this new year gives us more time to hang with friends and family and hopefully getting to see some friends we haven't seen in awhile. Love and miss everyone!
