Macy Day

This blog is quickly becoming Gaby focused, and possibly rightly so. But today is Macy Day at our house.

Macy had her first physical therapy appointment at our home this morning. It was great. We love Carrie the therapist working with her. Macy did wonderful doing all the exercises and activities. She also seemed to really like Carrie and want to do things with her, which is a blessing. She is so tired from that hour of working out! She is snuggling and sleeping now.

Macy is such a sweet baby, as you can see from the picture. She gives the best full-face smiles. Last week I even got her to start laughing. It is the sweetest sound. She loves to cuddle when she is tired, but she is SO busy when she is awake. She wants to sit up and see everyone and everything going on.

When her and I are at the hospital visiting sister, she is so nosy. There are many times I have to turn her around because she won't stop staring at people and it is almost rude! She wants everyone that comes into the room to talk to her, which they always do. Fussing about her outfit, her beautiul skin, her big eyes, or her long gorgeous eyelashes. She is quite the center of attention and likes it that way.

I am so thankful for Macy and the smiles she brings us each day. I am so glad God chose me to be her mommy.

I know babies aren't supposed to play Super Mario Galaxy 2, but she really loves watching it!
