It's hard to believe that 2 years has gone by since little MacKenzie joined our family. To say the time has flown by way too quickly is an understatement. It seems like it was just yesterday that Doug and I went to the hospital to welcome baby girl #3.
There have been some scares (our 6 day hospital stay at birth (that felt like 6 years), repeated breath holding spells and ER visits, allergic reactions), but through it all Mac has consistently been the sweetest, happiest, most smiley little girl around.
To hear her laugh, to see her love and adoration for her "sisties," to see her beautiful smile every single day...these are the little things that help me to recognize the incomparable blessings of being a mother. I thank Heavenly Father every day for allowing MacKenzie to join our family, to bless us with her example, and to allow us to watch her grow. Happy birthday little one...we all love you SO very much!
Here's the rundown on how MacKenzie spent her birthday. After dropping Aiden and Reilly off at school, Mac and I went and got some special birthday donuts. She had some fun playtime at the park with her friend Gavin. After her nap we picked Reilly and Aiden up from school. Mac then had her favorite afternoon snack (popcorn, or pop-pop as she calls it) while watching some Yo Gabba Gabba (another favorite). Mac's birthday dinner was chosen by her sisters (Old Spaghetti Factory, a family favorite), but she didn't seem to mind in the least. When bedtime came, Mac got to snuggle her new fuzzy YGG friends Muno, Brobee, and Foofa.
All in all, I would say our little two year old had a pretty fun birthday!!
