Oh Reese! And we are now into the two digit month numbers, completely bittersweet. What can I say? You are something else! Here are some things I want to remember:
-You are one inquisitive little girl! If you were in a contest you would easily win a stare off because you do just that, stare and someone/something new with your piercing, but beautiful BIG blue eyes!
-Talking...I think you get this from me, you like to hear yourself talk and say, "Momma, Dadda, Bye-Bye and No" the first two are constants, the others you have said only a couple of times.
-Eating...you dropped another feeding this month and are down to one bottle a day, and then eating with mom in the morning and at night. You still like pureed food but have started trying new things and I am happy to say you like Turkey and Grilled Cheese sandwichs. I still have high hopes that you won't be as picky as your brother
-Mobility...You are one fast crawler and as soon as you get to your destination you quickly figure out how to pull yourself up and then like to stand there with one arm on and the other off. You have stood by yourself a few times and right now I feel like those first steps will be taken before you turn one, but I am not sure if you will be completely walking by then. I am in no rush for that though!
Personality..You are a DRAMA QUEEN! Man do you like attention! You could have a tray full of food but will cry out if someone is not directly in front of you talking to you. Once you have gotten your way you smile, and go back to eating and being happy. You have the heartiest laugh! I love to hear that belly laugh that comes out when you are being tickled (you are extremely ticklish) or when you see something you like.
Sleeping...You do take naps, thank goodness, but the rest of the night time has a lot to be desired. Why oh why do my children not like to sleep??? Your daddy and I both really enjoy sleeping but apparently we did not pass this trait.
Extras...You have started to clap your hands and even dance a little. When music comes on and you are crawling you will stop what you are doing and do a little booty shake which is so cute! Or you will sit yourself up and shake your head with the music. You LOVE to turn the lights on and off. You will hit the light switch with an open hand and then your face lights up so bright when you succeed turning it on/off. Another unbecoming trait of yours, you like to slap/bite mommy and only mommy! You have gotten my face and shoulders numerous times and when I firmly tell you NO, you look at me and then giggle. I can already tell you are going to be a little piece of work.
Reese, we continue to praise God for choosing your Daddy and I to be your protectors and guides here on Earth. Whoever said that once you have kids it is like taking a piece of your heart and watching it walk around you on the outside had it right. You and your brother are the light of our lives and we love you dearly. We can't wait for the next month and all of the adventures to come!
