We started Reese on vegetables today. She ate green beans and gagged every time I put them in her mouth. It was hilarious. We have a video but I have not loaded it yet. I will soon...
Congrats to my cousin Michael and his wife Zoe...they just found out they will be having a little girl in May!

Saturday we started our whirlwind of parties and visiting with the McKinleys. We had lunch with them and spent the afternoon at their house. It was great visiting with them as always and we can't wait to do it again.
Maddie, Jodie, and Reese
Sunday we went to my aunt and uncles house for Christmas with my dad's family. The Florida folks didn't make it up this year and we missed them greatly. Reese got tons of cute presents while we were there and she can't wait to play with them all.

After Christmas with my dad's family we spent the night with my parents and had Christmas eve with them. That morning my Mom, Becca and I got a pedicure while Lance stayed home with Reese and my dad and Leah worked. That evening we went to Lance's sisters house and spent Christmas day with them. Reese got some wonderful presents (as did Lance and I) and we can't wait to see her enjoy them all.

Today Reese is five months old. We went to the doctor this morning to get her Hib and IPV vaccinations. She was a trooper. She only cried until I picked her up. She weighed 18 lbs and 11 oz...which is 1 pound and 10 ounces more than three weeks ago...wow. It must be the cereal. She did have her clothes on this time though...so take away a few ounces. I also think she is teething. She screamed and cried last night and would not go to bed. She finally went to sleep shortly after 10:00 and then slept until 6:45. Her little cheeks are red and she is enjoying chewing on her chew toys.
The rest of the week is going to be super busy. Tomorrow and Friday I need to finish Christmas shopping. I said I would not be shopping last minute this year but here I am less than a week before Christmas and I am not done yet! Then we will be full of Christmas visits starting Saturday.

Wednesday was the first day introducing cereal to Reese. It was quite an experience for both of us. I had to figure out how best to give her the cereal and she had to figure out what to do with it. I video taped (I guess it is not really taped anymore since it is digital but you know what I mean) feeding her on Wednesday but all of the videos are long and will take forever to load. I did a shorter one today that is not as funny but you can see her being a big girl and eating (and squealing...not sure why she squeals the whole time...I guess she is excited to be eating). She ate ALL of her cereal today. I think she liked it because it was a little thicker than the last two days. After I put the cereal in her mouth she sticks a finger in her mouth to suck on. I think that helps her swallow. The first day all of the cereal ended up on her bib but I think she actually swallowed most of it today. Enjoy!

I finally caught Reese rolling over today. She has been a rolling over machine. She still is only rolling from back to front but it won't be long until she is going the other way. She gets frustrated when she is on her tummy...I can tell she is trying to figure out how to go back. It has been so much fun watching her learn how to do this. Check it out...
Here is my sweet baby laughing. I got her going so I had to get the camera out to record it. Sorry about the mess in the beginning...I was getting the camera set up so it could see her and hear her.
Challenge to my husband: Get at least one post written this month slacker!!

Good news...hopefully I am not jinxing myself...she has slept through the night the last two nights. She wakes a couple of times and I give her a pacifier and she is right back to sleep. Maybe something good besides her sleeping in her crib for nap time will come out of these fights. I think she is so worn out by the time it is bed time that it is helping her sleep through the night. Hopefully this is just the start to full night sleeping and not a tease!!
I can't believe it but Reese is 3 months old today! It seems like we have always had her but it also seems like time has flown by. We are still enjoying every minute of having our sweet baby!! She has reached some fun milestones recently. She is reaching for and grabbing things that are with in reach. She likes her toy rings. I am hoping by the end of this next month she will be rolling over...we will see. When she is on her back she will roll to her side so I will push her the rest of the way over. She lasts much longer on her stomach when it happens that way than when I put her on her stomach to start.
To be fair to Reese, here is what she has to say about all of it (this video took FOREVER to load):

I deleted this video because it kept making the page jump down to it. I couldn't figure out how to edit the code to stop this so the video is gone...sorry!

One year ago (some time around now) we got pregnant. That is so crazy to think it was that long ago!! We didn't actually figure it out until November 11th though. Our lives would never be the same after that!
Was that TMI?? Sorry.

Oh well, it will get better. She did sleep from 8:00 to 5:00 last night so I can't complain there. I think I hear her waking now...better go feed that baby!
