- Ike and Holly Morgan
- United States
- We are currently living in Knoxville Tennessee. I am a stay at home mom and absolutley love hanging out with Makai (age 5) and Beck (age 3). Ike is in his 2nd year of Oral Surgery Residency at the Univerity of Tennessee Hospital. We miss all of our friends and family, but enjoy the opportunity to meet new friends and see new places. This blog is just a little piece of our every day life here in Knoxville.

Makai's first day of Preschool. She attends MySchool one day a week for 3 1/2 hours. Her class name is the Apple Dumplings. She insisted that for the first day of school she had to have her hair straightened. It's her favorite! She loves playing on the playground, cooking time and music. She gets so excited to see all of her friends, but the most important part is the treat in her princess lunch bag! She is too cute!
Bedtime fun! Bedtime consists of dinner which entails Beck wanting to feed himself while holding the spoon upside down and launching the food like a football when he's had enough: Fighting with Makai to stay in her chair, telling her to eat her vegetables or she doesn't get a treat and setting a timer because she likes to take a half hour to eat her meal. Then we move on to tubbies which involves splashing water all over the floor, hooting at Beck to sit down (he likes to shoot hoops standing up) and Makai crying because she's sure she has soap in her eyes. Tubbies end with a nude little man running around because he doesn't want to get his jammies on and Makai wanting to wear a princess nightgown that is way too hot. After tubbies it's time for Popsicles which is about the cutest thing. They both swap licks of each other's Popsicles and Ike takes a massive bite out of each of them. Then we move on to story time. Makai picks two books which are usually the same two each night until Mommy has had enough! A current favorite right now is Bunny Cakes. Then Daddy brushes teeth usually without too much drama. You just have to chase Beck around and pin him down. Then it's time for family prayer, Grammy's Song and hugs and kisses all around. Makai is usually asleep in two minutes and Beck hoots for about 30 minutes and then we check on him and sure enough we have to change his diaper. Then it takes him about 30 more minutes before he stops playing and chattering and falls asleep.
