Reese slept in her new big girl bed!!!

Marshall and I are SO excited! Reese slept like an angel last night in her new roomin her new big girl bed!!! We discovered once we had it set up that it was too high off the ground and that it wasn't safe. She could easily stand up and fall over the rails, and we all know she is a "stander" and a climber. So we put the mattress (with the rails) on the floor in her room. We plugged in her new Tinkerbell night light (a gift from Santa) and put all her blankies in there, and she slept ALL NIGHT without waking up at all. She looked so comfortable throughout the night! We are so proud of her!!! Now let's see how nap time goes.......

Here she is last night...this is her new favorite position. One leg crossed over the other!

Reese's new silly face

This cracks us up every time she does it...and, of course, she won't do it on command. We had a picnic down at the garden and then she got in the swing. She cried when it was time to leave =( This face makes me laugh every time I see it!

And here are some more cute ones...

Our family Christmas picture

I never imagined how hard it would be to get a 2-year-old to sit still and smile at the camera! This is about picture #32 of about 50....and she's still not looking at the camera. She cries every time we go to a photo studio, so we decided to take our picture using the tripod and timer. It really wasn't any easier...but here's what we got! Merry Christmas!

31 week update

Well, I have 9 weeks to go! I saw Dr. Ratleff this morning and everything looks great with Baby Girl 2. She weighs a little over 3 lbs. and is measuring right on target. She is breech right now, which I wasn't expecting. The ultrasound tech couldn't get any good shots of her face, so I will have another scan in about a month. We did confirm that she is still a girl, so we don't have to start buying boy clothes! I've gained 15 lbs. total, which is where I should be. Here I am as of today:

Christmas is coming!

We got our Christmas tree last weekend. It started raining as soon as we picked it out, but we got a few pictures of Reesie with the trees. She wasn't in the mood to investigate them.

Friday I took her to see Santa....she HATED him! She took one look at him and pitched a fit to get off his lap. This is the picture we got...don't mistake it for her telling Santa what she wants for Christmas -- she's looking at him like he's the most hideous thing she's ever seen...haha!

Happy Thanksgiving!

We shared Thanksgiving with Granny Betty and family. She has a lot of yard space, so Reese was more than happy to run around! It was a beautiful day, so she burned off a lot of the turkey she ate.

The Latest...

I passed the glucose test! What a relief. Now I can enjoy the rest of the pregnancy. Can you believe I have 11 weeks left? I can't believe I'm about to have two daughters...I don't think I know what I'm getting into...haha!

Here are some recent pictures of Reesie. Some are from her sitting at the table eating her dinner and some are from this Sunday at Bok Tower.

Another day at Bok Tower

We enjoyed another beautiful afternoon at Bok Tower last Sunday. Reese discovered this little hut and she would've played in it all day if she could. She loved going up and down the steps, which were way too big for her. But she didn't let that stop her, of course!

28 weeks

Here I am at 28 weeks. I had my doctor's appt. yesterday, and everything looks great! I've gained 12 lbs. and baby girl's heartbeat was nice and strong. I had to have the glucose test...that orange drink tasted like a flat Orange Crush, but it wasn't bad. Hopefully I passed and won't have to go back for the 3-hour test. The thought of getting stuck three times just makes me cringe! Baby girl is constantly moving around and squirming all over the place. I love that feeling! I will miss it once she's here.

Wonder Woman!

Here is Reesie in her Halloween costume! I was really impressed that she kept it on and didn't try and pull any of it off. We took some pictures in the yard and then went to the mall. We didn't trick or treat, but she really enjoyed just walking around. We got a work out just following her! She was without a doubt the cutest little Wonder Woman there!

Enjoying the gorgeous weather!

This weekend was so beautiful! We spent it outside walking around Bok Tower and playing with some pumpkins. Here are some pictures of us having a fun time together.

Blowing Bubbles!

Reese is fascinated with bubbles! Friday evening's weather was perfect, so we enjoyed some outside time. She kept trying to grab the handle so she could do the bubbles herself, but she didn't quite understand that you have to blow it. It was fun watching her watching and trying to catch the bubbles!

Silly girl!

Reese and Marshall had lots of fun goofing off on our bed tonight. She was just about to get her bath and she decided she wanted to play after I took off her onesie. She never runs around without clothes, but it looks like she enjoyed it! These are so funny....she loves playing on our bed.
