Okay, here's the first one at 8 days old:
The second one at 1 month 1 week old:
And todays, 2 months 1 week old:
This is the SUPER cute stocking Chris's mom and dad brought for Mckayla. I think it is the cutest baby's first Christmas stocking I've ever seen!
His parents also got this beautiful plate and mug for Mckayla so she can leave Santa milk and cookies. As you can see he enjoyed his sugar cookies!!
The funnest thing about Christmas morning was Abbey saying my name for the first time! Lacey had walked in the house and yelled my name and Abbey just repeated it as clear as day! She kept saying it over and over and she would look and point at me every time too so she definetely knew it was my name! We caught a little clip of it here but she said it lots of times and even clearer too. YAY ABBEY!

Here's her second cousin Summer playing with the penguin bowling toys Mckayla got from my Aunt Leshia and Uncle John:
Mckayla with her great-Grandma McKay:
Santa left McKayla lots of goodies!
After we did Christmas morning at our house, we went to my parents house for breakfast and presents with them and Brian, Lacey, and Abbey. Here's Mimi and Papa with their grandbaby girls!
Abbey was so much fun to watch with everything because she is old enough to really enjoy presents. At one point we caught her taking a break in her car seat with a box of raisins, just sitting there watching all the activities!
We came home after that and Chris's parents came down for the day. We got a lot of wonderful gifts from both of our parents (too many to list!) but I had to show off this door mat his parents got for us...it is just too funny!
The absolute best part about Christmas was all the fun stuff for Mckayla. She is only 2 months old and she got SOOOOO spoiled! I took a picture of all of her loot. You'll have to click on the picture to make it bigger to see everything, it's just too much to show individually! We love it all!
Here's a couple close ups of some of our favorites:
This toy was from Mimi and Papa McKay and it makes all the animal noises, spins, and lights up. Abbey had fun with it too!
As you know, I LOVE penguins so by default so does Mckayla (hehe!) so I've always wanted this penguin bowling toys and my Aunt Leshia and Uncle John got this for her:
My mom and I always seem to think alike because I came so close to buying this outfit for Mckayla but held out because we'd already gotten her so much stuff. I never told her about it but she got one for Mckayla and a matching set for Abbey too so they can be twinkies! SO cute! Pictures of them matching to come soon :)
I've always said when I have a kid I wanted the Precious Moments birthday train for each birthday. Each year has a different animal with the number, but this is the first one that is for the new baby and leads the train. Her Grandma Debbie got her this and this adorable tiny little locket for when she gets a little bigger. Isn't it sweet?!!
One of our favorites though (and biggest surprise) was definetely this AWESOME rocking horse Chris's parents got for her! It looks so realistic and it makes cute noises and moves too! This is ironic too because this is what Abbey wanted so bad and got a similar one for Christmas too!
Here it is in action:
THANK YOU EVERYONE SOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH FOR ALL THE WONDERFUL GIFTS! We had so much fun and we love you all very much! We are blessed to have such a wonderful family!

This past week Mckayla has really starting babbling and cooing a lot more, it is SO cute! Here's a little bit I got on camera yesterday morning. There was a lot more talking before I got the camera and by the time I got the camera going she got the hiccups too so this is just a little bit of what she does. I'll keep trying to get more!

Check out this pile of tree, and Chris stacked 99% of this all himself!
He thinks he's such a stud!!!

A side view
No damage yet! Thankfully Chris had just taken down the Christmas yard decorations right before this branch collapsed on our walkway
See that branch on the roof? That's the one we are worried about now. We hope it doesn't go down and take the window out on the way. We think it will miss it if/when it does go.
