Reese's FIRST year!

Wow! What a year it has been with our sweet girl. She is seriously the cutest. I can't believe she's only been with us for only a year. Let's take a trip down memory lane...

August 2011 - found out we were pregnant with Reese!

(Miss you Lindsey...)

The pictures below are from her birthday.

Reese didn't dig into her cake, just like her brother. I don't like sticky fingers and I guess I rubbed that off onto my kids. She did, however, put her finger in the flame...that was kind of funny (she didn't even notice). We had all our friends and family surrounding her on her birthday. We are so lucky to have the friends we have here in Seattle, and family close by. It was perfect. Reese had no idea what was going on, but oh well...

Some fun facts about our girl...
  • She weighs 22.5 lbs (75%)
  • She is 31.5 in (100%)
  • She doesn't stand or walk...she can crawl super fast tho. She stands and walks along things, but doesn't care to walk on her own.
  • Sleeps 12 hours at night
  • Throws hilarious fits. She screams and then falls back on her back. I just sit there and think...really??
  • Waves goodbye
  • Gives slobbery kisses...I love it tho. 
  • Has 7 teeth (four just came through on top...ouch!)
  • She's a little bird...aka if you have food she just opens her mouth waiting for food to be put in. 
  • Wears 18-24 month clothing
  • Had her first hair cut so she didn't have a mullet
  • If she wakes up before Boston does, she crawls to his bedroom door and pounds on his door. It's actually really cute.
  • Loves to wrestle with Jeff.
She is the best little lady. I sure do love our girl. We are so glad she picked our family!

February was an exciting month!! It started off with us buying a new car...

We are loving this car. It's a Nissan Pathfinder. I will say this, it was the BIGGEST pain to get everything transferred over to us...seriously. The family lived an hour away, so we drove there 3 times getting papers signed and such. THEN the owner moved away to the Philippines (which is why she sold it in the first place). That wasn't a big problem until we needed one more signature from her. Oh man, bring on the problems. Well, calling cards,  notary, scanning, re-doing notary, signatures being wrong, wrong addresses later....we FINALLY got the ownership to our car. 

Spending Valentines day with all three of my loves...which included making sugar cookies....and of course licking the beaters.

Having nicer weather which meant we hit the park! Many times....

Mid February, my grandmother passed away so we took a quick trip over to Spokane. This was how the kids thought they would help pack the car..seriously...I was kinda mad. 

At Christmas, we didn't have enough room to bring Reese' car home, so we grabbed it this trip. She LOVES it. And yesterday she walked with it the first time. She didn't look sturdy at all, which is so so cute. Hey, at least she's trying. 

Also, for Boston's 3rd birthday we got him a scooter and he just didn't understand how to +-to practice. 

I also wanted to add that my sweet little girl will be ONE in just 11 days!! I'm super cool and bought her a new car seat for her birthday. It's actually really cool and cute. 

Reesie Jane at 2 days... <3 (I feel like that doesn't he even look like her!)
