Getting ready for Christmas







This year Maci has her very own Christmas tree in her room and she LOVES it! Here are a few pictures of her by it!

Maci's new car







Maci got a new car from Daddy and Mommy for her birthday! She LOVES this thing! She really likes to be pushed around in it really fast, yes in the house, now you know why our house looks like a tornado hit it! haha

Maci's 1st Birthday





Last Thursday our BEAUTIFUL little angel turned "1"! I still can't believe she is a whole year old, it seems like yesterday that I was having her! We had Maci a small party at the shop on Thursday for her birthday and then we took her out to eat mexican thursday night! Mexican Chicken is her FAVORITE, thats why we took her there on her birthday!! On Saturday she had her BIG birthday party at our house! We had so much fun and had so many people there! Maci got ALOT of nice gifts and had the best time ever! I am not a big decorator but I went all out for Maci's 1st birthday and I had so much fun doing it. I am completly exhausted and my house still looks like a tornado hit it but we had a blast and thats all that matters! Maci did really well with her cake, she ate a little more than half of it....haha At her work party she ate the whole cupcake! She acted like she had done the "messy cake" thing before, I was a little worried because she was so good at digging right in...haha My mom made Maci's beautiful outfit! Everything turned out perfect for our little Princess's 1st birhtday! Here are a few pics from Maci's special day!

Santa






Several weeks ago Amanda and I took Maci and Adalyn to see santa at the mall! Adalyn is still a little young to know what is going on but Maci on the other hand knows EXACTLY what is going on even though I didn't think she would have a clue....She was all excited about Santa while we were waiting in line, when it came our turn to go up Maci started waving at him and giggling. As I went to sit her down on his lap I felt her arms and legs getting tighter and tighter around me and as I sat her down on his lap she SCREAMED. I felt so bad for her but I wanted a picture of her with santa this year because she was too little to get out last year to get a picture with santa. Ady did so good, but I can only imagine how she will act next year...lol Well here is how our picture went........

Taking a few steps

So about a week ago Maci started taking a step or two and then she would fall down! On Friday night she took 4 steps and on Saturday she took 6 steps twice! I think she will be walking in a week or so!!! She is so excited about it too!

Halloween 2009
















This year was Maci's 1ST Halloween. Maci was a ladybug this year! Adalyn and Maci had matching costumes! They were the cutest ladybugs EVER!! We had SO MUCH fun! My mom, dad, Nanny, Aunt Amanda, Uncle Skip, Adalyn, Allen, VJ, Jayden, Krissy and Braylen all come over to help us celebrate!Mom, Chase, Allen, VJ and I took Maci and Jayden trick or treating around our neighborhood and they had alot of fun and got some good candy and a nice little goodie bag (with stuff Maci could actually eat) from Aimee, Brad, Caroline and Carson! It was all a little too much excitement for little Jayden because she fell asleep right after the second house! Maci was full of herself as always and she was the center of attention! After trick or treating we all came back to the house to hang out and eat pizza! I think Maci really enjoyed her 1st Halloween!

10 months















It is really hard for me to believe our sweet little girl is 10 months old. Maci is growing SO FAST. She is pulling up on everything and she is trying to walk! She will walk holding your hands and sometimes holding just one hand! She will push her walker/ride on toy and walk behind it! She learns so fast! I can't believe in 2 months our little girl will be a year old. We are busy preparing for a 1st birthday party, Thanksgiving, Christmas and our trip to Florida!


My family has gone to Florida in December the past 2 years for the NMCA racing banquet. Dad and my brother both race in the NMCA and this year both of them won the Championship! They have worked SO HARD and we are so proud of them! Chase and I have never gone with them because the first year they went I needed to stay here and work, last year I was 9 months pregnant and my doctor told me I couldn't go so this year there is NO EXCUSE, Chase, Maci and I are going! We can't wait. Dad is so excited Maci is getting to go with him! He said he was going to take her to Disneyworld, Universal Studios, Shopping and lots of other things...lol



December is going to be a very busy month but we are going to have SO MUCH FUN!

Patty Cake




Maci LOVES to play "Patty Cake" she claps her hands all the time and when you start singing the song she gets SO EXCITED!!! Her other favorite game is Peek-a boo! She is so sweet and we never imagined how much joy one sweet, innocent, beautiful little girl could bring into our lives! Maci is our LIFE! We couldn't have asked for a more perfect, beautiful, sweet little angel! We never knew that we could love someone so much that it hurt!

~She's a big girl now~
















Maci is also sleeping in her own bed now like a big girl! She still isn't sleeping through the night but she is getting better! Some nights she only wakes up 4-5 times but then some nights its 14-15 times. We recently discovered that her acid reflux has decided to start causing problems again so we have put her back on her medicine and it seems to be helping some. She really likes her bed and sleeps so much better in it than in our room. I don't like her being that far away from us but I know it is better for all of us and we all sleep better, most of the time! I can't believe how fast Maci is growing!

~WE HAVE A CRAWLER~




I haven't been able to log into my blog for some reason, so needless to say I haven't been able to update in awhile! I am updating this as Chase and I are headed to eat dinner for our Anniversary! It seems like I never have time to do anything anymore, but it is all SO worth it!



As of about 3 weeks ago Maci started crawling! She is going EVERYWHERE now and she is into EVERYTHING! She is SO PROUD of herself that she can crawl! She will crawl a little bit then sit up and clap for herself, it is the sweetest thing! She is also pulling up on everything. It won't be long and our little girl will be walking! I can believe in less than 3 months our BEAUTIFUL BABY GIRL will be one year old!

8 Months old













Our sweet, beautiful little girl is 8 months old today! She is growing up WAY TOO FAST....It makes me so sad :( She can say "Hey, Ma Ma, Da Da, Ba Ba" clap her hands, sit up on her own, hold her own bottle (when she wants too, which isn't very often), roll over both ways, hold onto something to stand up and she is so close to crawling it is scary! She is everywhere and into everything! Maci is such a happy baby, she only gets fussy when she is sleepy or hungry! She is so independent! I was really worried about bringing her to work with me before she was born but it has worked out really well and I wouldn't change anything about it! She does so good up here with me! She gets in her walker and goes everywhere! When we let her walk in her walker out in the showroom she runs and acts so excited! It is so funny watching her, its like she is wanting to say I HAVE FREEDOM to go where ever I want to go!! I can't believe in only 4 months our baby girl will be ONE! I can't wait to start planning her First Birthday party!

Maci's Baby Dedication ~ July 26, 2009


Yesterday was Maci's Baby Dedication at church. Baby Dedication is where Chase and I dedicate Maci back to God. Maci was a gift/blessing from God to us but, she will always belong to God. We made a commitment to raise Maci in a Godly manner. It was a very BEAUTIFUL service and Maci was so good. She looked BEAUTIFUL in her dress that her Cacki made for her!
