What is wrong with this family?

Jamie Lynn Spears Says She's Pregnant
1 hour ago.
This is beyond disgusting to me. This girl is 16 years old and she is a star of a hit TV show on Nickelodeon. It is scary that I will be raising my daughter with role models like this out there. It makes me so thankful for the gospel in my life.

Baby Food in the form of Meat

I have a question for all the moms out there that know more than I do. McKenna has gone through all of her veggies and started on fruits about a week ago. So when should I start her on the mushy meat product? She still has no teeth and I'm worried that Grandpa Braegger will have to make some dentures for her:) Anyway please fill me in on any suggestions. I really appreciate all the advice, believe me I need it-Have a great day

Updated Family Pictures

Chris and I recently went to Target for our family picture for our Christmas cards. These are some of my favorite shots of the day. McKenna eating the fake cookie was hilarious and she actually started crying when we took it away from her.

Look alike meter

I have always been too frightened to try this because I thought McKenna would look like Chris 100% At least according to this measurement she has both of our good looks:)

Brad Womack is such a Tool-

So I was watching the finale of The Bachelor last night and I was so excited that Brad was going to pick DeAnna. I cannot believe what he did, he started his speech and basically told her that he wasn't going to make her any false promises and said he had to tell her goodbye too. I was shocked. Was he planning to do that the whole time? Anyway I hope that he explains things on the show tonight because that was just not cool. Okay I'll move on from TV. McKenna is getting so big, she can basically sit up by herself and she loves it. Chris brought his huge keyboard to the floor to let her play it and she was so excited especially when she accidentally turned on different beats. I'm trying to think of anything else interesting to say and I can't so I hope that everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving:)

Halloween Fun

I am so happy Halloween finally arrived:) We handed out so much candy this year in our new neighborhood, probably three times the amount of last year. We took some pictures of McKenna right before the trick or treaters started coming because she looked so adorable in her little kitty costume. She did miss most of the excitement though because she went to bed at 6:30. So am I the only person watching Dancing with the Stars? I was sad that Sabrina left because I thought she was the best one. Also, ANTM was not a new show last night it was a recap, I don't like when they do stuff like that it is such a let down. I know I probably watch way too much T.V. Anyway I hope everyone has a wonderful day and hopefully soon I will be able to post some pics of McKenna sitting all the way up by herself she is so close-

America's Next Top Model

Tyra thinks this look is fierce. I made eye contact with the camera and told a story with my eyes. Seriously, this pose is hot, and it should be after practicing in the mirror. I still need to work on my posing though and I wait to start crawling and walking to change it up a little bit. I just know deep down in my heart that I should be America's Next Top Model. (McKenna's thoughts on this picture) I love it because you can see her beautiful eyes that sure did not come from my side of the family. By the way, I want Heather to win this season.

The Gift of Sleep

So the night before last my daughter slept from 7:30 p.m. to 7:30 a.m. Words cannot describe how excited I was because in the first time in a long while I felt well rested when I woke up. However, last night my daughter went to bed at 7:50 p.m. and woke up at 3:00 a.m. screaming. I went to her room and checked on her and even changed her diaper. I gave her the pacifier and put her blanket just the way she likes it and left the room. Silence for 5 minutes had she gone to sleep? No after the five minutes I hear screaming again. I let her cry for 20 minutes and she would not let up. My husband then got up with her and stayed with her for 10 minutes before she finally got back to sleep. She then woke up at her normal 7:30 a.m. Seasoned mothers I need your advice. McKenna's pediatrician said not to feed her at night anymore and that she should be sleeping 12 hours. Should I just let her cry? What do you all think because I long for the well rested feeling I had a couple of nights ago.

McKenna is growing up too fast

I cannot believe how fast McKenna is growing and developing. It just seems like yesterday that we brought her home from the hospital and now she is rolling over and she has started to scoot a little bit on her tummy. I guess I will have to have another child because she is certainly not in the little I want to cuddle baby stage anymore. I must say that being a mom is the most rewarding thing in the entire world and I cannot wait to add to our family. Well I can wait a little while longer:)

So my younger sister Erica got married this past weekend and I got this beautiful dress for McKenna to wear. Of course she hated it and protested so much that I just made her wear it for pictures and then changed her into a onesie. She had just had her shots a couple of days before and was not sleeping well, plus we had company at our house so she was not happy Saturday night at the reception. I have included some family shots as well. My sisters look beautiful and I still look pregnant-oh well. We had a great time with family and friends and Chris got coherced into being the DJ again. He couldn't dance with me and he was really upset about it:) A shout out has to go to Jen for keeping McKenna looking so cute with hair clips and headbands.

I have decided to post some of the pictures we got taken at Target about a month ago. These are two of my favorite pics. Obviously I love the picture of McKenna with me, and this one by herself we love because you can see a little smile. We actually cut her cousin out of the other half because Rylan looked scared. Sorry Rylan

So I knew it was too good to be true. Apparently the Old Navy that I was at had more t-shirts marked down than what they were supposed to. Some graphic tees are 5.00, but not all of them. Sorry for the misleading info. If you want to take advantage of the lower prices before they catch on it was the store on Cooper and Baseline that had all graphic tees for 5.00
So I was just at Old Navy and they have all of their baby items 20% off. Really fun stuff for boys and girls. Also, everytime I go shopping with the intent of only getting something for McKenna I end up seeing something for myself. They have really comfy graphic tees for 5.00 each. All of their graphic tees which are normally between 14.95-16.95. Anyway I thought I would share the happy news with you all. Side note for those of you that are pregnant they have really cute maternity clothes as well.

I love the Bumbo Seat, it has been a lifesaver!

Family Fun in San Diego

Our first family vacation!!!! Chris and I just celebrated our five year anniversary, so we decided to splurge and went to San Diego. McKenna decided she wanted to go with us and we had so much fun at Sea World. By the way, we stayed at the Hilton Resort right on Mission Bay, which was very nice. But, what they do not tell you when you are making reservations is that they have some sort of chemical there that is known by the state of California to cause cancer and birth defects-Scary! Needless to say we will not be staying there in the future. I'm also new to the whole mom thing as many of you know, and I had the pleasure of staying in a hotel with a 31/2 month old. She was waking up like four times a night, I thought I was past all that. I guess not:)
