Our Firecracker!

Our Firecracker! The 4th may be over, but the antics live on! What a firecracker we have in our little, peanut of a 7 month old, granddaughter! Makenzie Ruth cracks me up and makes me laugh!

Makenzie is learning to crawl! I should have put this in video form, but I didn’t think about it until the day after and I am 7 hours away! With your imagination, run through these pictures as fast as your eyes will allow and watch her try to crawl! Next, I should have had video, as she is squealing and cooing and singing! What a comedian!

Oh, and she loves an audience! When you are not watching, she stops what she is doing AND stares at you with no smile. Almost a teary sad look, as she doesn’t see you watching! What a ham! When you turn to watch her, she is all smiles and giggles!

My goodness, where does that girl get all that energy? She jumps, even when she isn’t in her jumper, so hang on when you are holding her! She kicks and laughs when she is laying on her back! No, not just little kicks, box kick-boxing kicks! And when she is on her belly, she is twisting and turning and rolling and sitting and twisting and turning and rolling and sitting and…. I don’t think she ever stops until she is sleeping!

I didn’t think she would ever just lay and cuddle, but she does! Late at night, when she should have been sound asleep, she was staying up to the very last minute! Late at night, nestled in her mommy’s arms. I don’t have a picture of that either, as I was sitting beside her, and didn’t want to get up and get her stirred up again. The picture will always live in my memory.

You said "My goodness, where does that girl get all that energy?" Have you ever watched yourself? I think, dear Grandma, she gets her energy from you! LOL!

She is coming to see me at the end of July, and I can't wait! sorry, everyone, I know this is a horsey blog, but just can't resist talking about these little ones. And one day, soon, they will be on a horse!
