REESE IS ONE!
Now I have a one year old and a five year old. Life is crazy, but I'm really enjoying the stage we are at right now. I think I've even said that before. Reese is such an easy baby. So complete opposite of her first 4.5 months of life. We were all so miserable back then, its amazing she has such a sweet disposition at this time.
We got our check-up at the Dr. yesterday. (Maddie also missed school for the first time. She was running a fever and had some cold-like symptoms, so I took her in for a sick visit with Reese's well visit. It turns out she has strep throat. A first for Maddie.) Reese weighs 22lb's 75% and is 29 in. 75%.
A few things to add on to last month, Reese can now go from crawling to sitting to standing while holding onto furniture. She can move her feet a couple of steps, but that's about it as far as cruising. She will move her feet a little bit if I hold her hands also.
She plays well by herself, even if she is getting into EVERYTHING. Her favorite is to mess with the TV sound system and turn it off and on. Reese also imitates well. I am trying to teach her sign language starting with "more" and "all done". I am actually impressed at how well its going.
Reese also has a new game she learned. When you ask her "where did Reesey go?" she will cover he eyes with her fists, hold for a couple of seconds then show her eyes again.
Reese still loves to cuddle - especially before bed time and she still loves her lovie giraffe. I don't usually let her play with it outside of bed time, but when its with her, she will take him wherever she goes.
She is still in size 4 diapers and wears 12months clothes (not for much longer) and mostly 18 months.
For her birthday we had a small gathering and the Theme was Reese's Pieces. I had a lot of fun with that. I will probably be doing that theme again in the future. This theme was also easy to do at this time of year. Everything is orange and black, so it wasn't hard to find.
We did some crafts
This is Reese's classic face
Reese had her own smash cake, a large Reese's Peanut Butter Cup (only it was a vanilla cake with chocolate icing)
