Reese looked so cute in her sailor outfit today. She acts like she is shy...silly girl.
Sunday's is Lissa day. She usually spends the day with us and then watches Reese while we go to our FPU class. Reese is usually well behaved but has her moments while we are gone. Well poor Lissa (and Tina who was in town) had a rough night with Reese tonight. Here are a couple of things that I think led to Reese's rough night. First of all, Lissa did not come to church with us this morning because her sister, Tina, was in town. She spent the morning with her family instead. So Reese didn't see her all day and didn't have the full on Lissa love yet. Second of all, my family (parents, sisters, and grandparents) came over after church so there was a bunch of attention directed at Reese. Slowly everyone started leaving...including Mommy. Third, Lance has been at work since 11 or so this morning due to some problems at the office. So Reese has not had her much needed Daddy time today. So all of these problems led to a combustion of attitude and Reese cried almost the entire time I was gone. When I walked in the door Tina was standing up holding a sleeping Reese who had probably worked herself up so much she passed out from crying exhaustion. I'm sorry guys that you had a such a rough night!
Here is Reese and Lissa the first night she kept her for us! Hopefully the next time won't be so rough!!

Reese and Caleb both wanted to use the walking toy!
Reese and Caleb posing for a picture
All three kids...I don't think any of them wanted their picture taken.
This picture is from the other day. Reese is wearing her stylin' new outfit from H&M that Aunt Becky bought for her.
My little Hollywood. She has loved playing with her sunglasses the last few days. She takes them off and then wants them put right back on...over and over and over.

Midday Saturday we went to our friends house for a wonderful lunch. Reese got to entertain some as usual. While Lance and Matt played Lego Star Wars on the Wii, us girls got to visit. Here are Maddie, Jodi, and Reese watching the boys play.
Sunday after church we went to have lunch with my family to celebrate a late Father's Day and early birthday for my dad (whose birthday is tomorrow).
Reese was pooped after lunch and took a nap on the way home.
This past week Reese found her tongue. She would pull on it and stick it out. It was so funny.
She also figured out how to open her Goldfish case and get the Goldfish out...stinker!
I think I have talked about this before but we have a nature center in our backyard. We see all kinds of birds, rabbits, chipmunks and squirells. This picture is of a baby rabbit we saw with who we assume was his mommy yesterday morning. Later in the afternoon after seeing this bunny we saw something tragic happen. We saw a black crow swoop down and knock out a chipmunk. Then as he swooped by for the second time he picked the chipmunk up in his mouth and flew away with it. It was horrible. I think all of the animals saw this happen yesterday because our backyard has been so quiet today. I have not seen one bird or rabbit today. I saw one brave and sneaky chipmunk run across the back fence hiding in the shadows...but that is all. It is so sad and quiet out there today! Mean old crow!!

This is Reese's favorite box to climb on and sit on. So Caleb decided he wanting to partake in the fun! Reese doesn't look too happy about sharing it.

Reese eating her first Dunkin' Donuts Munchin' that we bought Daddy for Father's Day breakfast. She, of course, loved it!!
Every weekend Lance cuts the grass and every weekend this is what I see. Reese watching him the entire time he is in the back yard!!
Daddy and Reese wrestling with the lambie! She was scared of it for a little while but then she finally grew to love it! Look at that face she is making...wouldn't you be scared of her?
Reese and Daddy getting some web surfing in.
I just love these chubby little legs! We have made it in to size 4 diapers now. The size 3 said they go to 28 lbs...they must be crazy...or your kid has to have no pot belly because Reese's belly was hanging over them and they looked so uncomfortable. My lesson in life to pass on is when the diaper can no longer hold the poop in, move on up to the next size!!

Tuesday after Reese's nap I let her "finger paint" in her highchair with some yogurt. I added some green beans for color. She really enjoyed it.
Reese came dressed in this cute yellow bumble bee outfit today and Kerri just happened to have one for Juliette too so we put in on her so we could take their pictures. Luckily this is ok when you are little...once you are older, girls do not want to be caught in the same outfit. Maybe that is what Juliette is saying here..."Oh no, you caught us!"
Kendall entertaining the babies...

Sunday night Lance and I started a class by Dave Ramsey called Financial Peace University. It was interesting and we are really looking forward to these next 13 weeks. Hopefully we will come out of this class with a bright future ahead of us when it comes to finances. I think both of our overall goals are to 1) be debt free (eventually) and 2) know how to help Reese (and any other kids that come along) with her financial planning. My sweet cousin Lissa kept Reese for us. She said Reese was an angel while we were gone...why can't she be that way for me? Liss, can you come over here all of the time??

I let Reese roam the upstairs while I was showering...I found her here when I got out..at my computer playing with the mouse.
My new view. When we go to the pool I usually just stick her in a t-shirt or something afterwards. This day I stuck her bloomers on her and let her run free. I think she likes it!
This is her new face. I have tons of pictures with this face instead of a smile.
We had a playdate with our old friend Mitchell today. They were so cute and sweet together. They were both playing with the music station and I called their names to get a picture. This is how they turned around...like a baby prom picture. They fell over right afterwards.
Here they are again smiling for Nicole. We had such a great time playing! I can't believe they are both going to be ONE next month!!

Reese has learned how to say more in sign language. She doesn't really know how to use it yet. And she shows you how she can play shy as well...which she is not.
She is in her bed screaming again tonight. I don't know what the deal is...maybe she is not tired. It is stressful...
