My baby... 5 months

Though she looks vivacious and outgoing in these pictures, don't be fooled.  We were tickling our little dumpling to get these beautiful, big smiles. Our Mackenzie is actually a quiet baby, content to observe the noise around her most of the time.  {And, believe me, there is plenty of noise to observe in her little world with four siblings!}
Can I just say how much I love this girl?  Maybe it comes with being a more experienced mom each successive time, but I am finding so much pleasure in caring for a baby again.  I now no longer worry (as much) about what her cries mean, what comes next in her schedule, what to do when she is sick, etc...  Even my bigger kids are amazing with having a baby sister and are quite competent in their baby care skills too.
And her Daddy?  Oooooh.... her Daddy!  The only thing better to a grown man than a little girl to call his daughter... is having two little girls to call his daughters!

Our home is such a happy home.... noisy, messy, and happy.  I would have it no other way.
