Our latest nickname for Reese, along with Reestipher and Monkey Pants, has become Reeser's. It just sort of happened and then it stuck. Who knows why nicknames stick, but sometimes the weirdest ones do.Reeser's, who is obviously teething after looking at all of these pictures of her chewing on stuff, has gotten really good at giving kisses. She no longer just opens her mouth and sticks out her tongue. She will actually pucker up and give sweet kisses. She will give the sweetest kisses to Presley. She just adores her big sister.
I started doing preschool type stuff with Presley this year. We are going through some curriculum that keeps us on track. She is so smart (I'm not biased at all...ha). And the great thing is she really seems to enjoy school...for the most part. It always works best if we do "School" during Reese's morning nap. But of course that doesn't always work out. We've been working on writing letters, letter sounds, and sight words. She's doing really well and I'm so proud of her.
I know I say it all the time but I can't imagine having to go to work every single day and leave these girls. And Drew can't imagine staying at home with these busy bodies and trying to get any work done. Ha! I am so grateful that I have this time to be a mommy and not have to worry about work. I am so blessed and do not take it for granted that every single day I get to spend every minute with these crazies. I can't imagine doing anything else right now.
