Reese is ONE!

What in the world? How is our sweet little baby girl already a year old? It literally feels like I was waiting in the waiting room..yes waiting room...ready to meet this precious girl. I can't imagine life without her. She is so sweet and spunky and her little personality grows more and more each day. 

-She weighs about 22 lbs and is about 30 inches long. I'll know for sure at her checkup.
-She wears size 4 diapers.
-She is wearing 18-24 month clothes and size 3-4 shoes.

-She is drinking whole milk and eating real food. She loves to eat all the time! 
-Just this week we made a huge turn from eating basically crackers and milk to now eating real food and less milk.
-She drinks about 2-3 8oz bottles. (which just last week it was about 6 bottles!)
-She eats meals with us and we give her whatever we are eating to let her try it. 
-Her favorites include strawberries, blueberries, yogurt, cheese, crackers (of any kind), cereal bars, jelly toast, and pasta.
-She does pretty well using a sippy cup but she still prefers her bottle. We are working on that.
-She sleeps great but she is still pretty difficult to put to bed. She doesn't really like to be left alone so she will fuss once we leave the room. We normally have to pat her bottom for a little bit to her to sleep.
-She goes to bed around 8:00 and wakes up around 7:30. 
-She takes 1-2 naps a day depending on our schedule for the day. Her naps are anywhere from 45 min-2 hrs.
-She always sleeps on her tummy but has fallen asleep on her back a few times lately while snuggling us.
-She still likes her white noise to help her sleep. 
-This girl is all over the place. She is really starting to climb onto everything. 
-She likes to kick and throw balls.
-She is doing pretty well climbing up stairs.
-She is hilarious and loves to be silly.
-She adores her sister.
-She still only has 8 teeth.
-She loves to dance.
-She likes to read books and play with blocks.
-She really studies every little thing now.
-She would rather be doing whatever Presley is doing over anything else.
-She understands pretty much everything we ask her to do and will communicate with us pretty well.
-She is very snuggling and kissy. She gives the best kisses now!

Party Time

We had a great birthday party today for Reese. All of Drew's family came to our house to have pizza and cupcakes. This week is spring break so the girls and I are planning to travel to see my family and have another birthday celebration with them. We just wanted to have a week long birthday for Reese. 

This little girl was super happy and snuggly all day. She just laughed and acted silly all day. It was great! She LOVED her cupcake (no surprise) (Thanks to our wonderful neighbor, Lisa, for making them for us!) and she had fun opening up her presents.  It was a great day!
