First of all, I am SO excited to say that I am beginning week 2 of the HCG diet, and I am down 12 lbs! WOOT! It hasn't been easy at all. I have wanted to give up a lot, and I did have a day where I cheated. Going to all the summer parties and BBQ's with amazing down-south cooking has been So difficult. But I am pushing through and it is so worth it!
Mackenzie is just amazing. I don't remember the last time I updated on her, but she has hit quite a few milestone!
-20 lbs, 26 inches
-Sitting up on her own, gets herself into sitting position.
- Says "Mama" "Dada" "Nana" "Uh-oh"
- Will clap, wave, point, and roll her arms on command with speaking only- no visual aids! So she understands words!
- Pulling herself to standing position in her crib...Trying VERY hard to do it with furniture too.
- SO close to walking. She knows what to do, she just can't quite keep her balance yet.
She gets more beautiful everyday. I can't believe she is my daughter. I am so blessed!
