Busy Weekend

This past weekend was packed full of events. The craziness began on Thursday afternoon when we had Makenna's nine month pictures taken. They haven't been posted online yet, but we will let everyone know when they are. Makenna was so happy and we know Kimber got a lot of great pictures of her. After pictures we went over to my sister Sheila's to help set up for a garage sale she, my mom, her roommates, and I were having. It was a long night (longer for all the rest of them than the Coffer family), but they finally got everything ready at 11:30.

On Friday, Makenna spent the day with her Nana and Aunt Sheila at the garage sale and she helped make some sales. Then on Friday night we went to Bolivar for the Bolivar vs. Willard high school football game. Makenna even got to go stand on the sidelines with her Uncle Trent during the game.

Saturday was a very memorable day because Makenna made her first visit to Silver Dollar City. My mom won a contest through a radio station and got some tickets to go, so we tagged along. Makenna enjoyed herself very much and we had a blast taking some fall pictures of her.

By the time Sunday rolled around we were all very tired and we all three took a good, long Sunday afternoon nap to help us get ready for this week. We have several activities at church because we are hosted a Global Impact Conference, but hopefully this weekend won't be as packed full as this past one.

3/4 of a Year

We simply cannot believe that 9 months ago today our little girl was born. It has been an amazing 9 months and we are excited to Makenna continue to grow. She had her nine month check-up yesterday. She weighed 17 lbs. 12 oz. and was 28 1/4 inches long. Yes, she is long and skinny being in the 75th percentile in height and only the 25th in weight. However, Dr. Hampton said she is doing great and seems to be advanced for her age. Of course, that was nothing new to us.

We are taking Makenna on Thursday to have her 9 month pictures taken and we are also looking forward to celebrating Makenna's first Halloween. I am not going to tell what she is going to be, but she will be super cute! I will be sure to post pictures.
