And with that, I didn't realize just how long it has been since I've updated! Yikes...a lot of things have happened since the last time...a family wedding, three holidays, one major illness, a new football rivalry (that we had the pleasure of attending!) and not much snow with it! Kenzi gave us a bit of a scare in December, when she didn't make a turn-around after getting a cold. We took her in and she had no neutrophils. To explain it as simply I can, neutrophils are the fighting part of white bood cells. So basically, she's going into battle, at the front line, with no bullets. After lots of prayers, trips to the hematologist, blood draws, and watching, she turned around and has done well since then. Her hematologist is hopeful that it was a one time, viral suppression so we'll see what she does the next time she gets sick. She's had a cough now since Christmas and hasn't had fevers, so we're hopeful that it wasn't anything major. Terrifying and scary, but hopefully part of her past!
Kenzi will be 6 months old on Sunday...where did the time go?!?! She's still a peanut...last time we weighed her, she tipped the scale at a wopping 12 lbs 5 oz! (Now granted, she had gained about 1 1/2 lbs in almost 2 weeks) She has her 6 month check up in a few weeks so we're hopeful that she's over 13. She started cereal and loves it! I got a baby magic bullet for Christmas, so started making some baby veggies for her. She LOVES them! I had gotten some baby food and tried it with her...she gagged (we're blaming Aunt Nikki for that trait!) on everything. So I made some peas...she gobbled them up with no problem. So far, our list is sweet potatoes, peas, and avacado...green beans are on the menu for tomorrow! No more store bought baby food for this house! She has started sitting up by herself, still tipsy, but getting better every day!
Since it's been such a long time since I've updated, I'm going to overload this post with some pictures!
Our kids don't love their blankies AT ALL :)
Getting pretty good at this new skill!
