It has, however, made eating quite difficult. She was doing so well for a few days at actually opening her mouth and eating from the spoon. But once she learned how to stick out her tongue that is all she wants to do. So I put in the spoon with food and she just sticks her tongue, and food, right now. Great!

A few days ago Reese learned how to stick out her tongue and it has been our source of entertainment. It's the funniest thing. She'll just randomly stick it out at times but then other times you can ask her to, "show me your tongue" and she will. So I'm not sure if she understands us or not but it's pretty great.

Reese is ALL OVER THE PLACE now. She is technically crawling just not the "traditional" way where you use your feet AND hands. She's more of a crawl and hop type of girl. She can get around anywhere she wants. It's crazy how fast and efficient she is even though she's not using her hands yet. There are times when I think she might just stand up and walk before she actually starts crawling. She'll put her feet and hands flat on the ground and stick her booty straight up in the air. It's crazy. She's growing up too fast!
We put Reese in her crib all night for the first time last night. The only reason she hasn't been in there yet is because I've been afraid she was going to wake up her sister. But after seeing how soundly Presley can sleep when Reese is crying I'm pretty sure we are ok. So now both girls are in their own rooms all night long and it's so strange. Time MUST slow down.

Today was Presley's first day back to Kid's Day Out. She got to go to a brand new 3 year old classroom today. I was a little nervous at how she would do because the new classroom is in an entirely different area. Plus, last year she cried for at least a couple of months when we dropped her off. We have been talking about her new class for a few days now and really making it a big deal. I guess it helped because she did great. She was a little hesitant and her fingers instantly went to her mouth (her nervous habit) but she walked right in and never looked back. I, however, got a little teary eyed. I didn't expect that at all. But it was just so hard seeing her really try to be brave and not cry. I was so proud of her. I've been super emotional lately with all the first day of Kindergarten pictures. I can't even imagine. I know that day will be here in the blink of an eye. I don't even want to talk about it. For today it was hard enough sending her to her 3 yr old class.

Presley loves (and hates) that her sister is moving around. It's fun because now she is wanting to play and is more interactive. But it's bad because now she can get toys. We knew this would happen. I'll see how long Presley puts up with it and still thinks its fun. It definitely makes it more of a challenge for me to get anything done. I can no longer walk out of the room and expect that Reese will be in the same spot.
