My mom knew my eyeballs worked before, but she was starting to worry... as I'm sure all mommies do with the little stuff. I'm a very good starer, but now I've graduated to being a good follower. I was in my pack-n-play today and wanted to get my mommy's attention, so I blew up my diaper, and she came a-runnin. :) I was staring at my puppy mobile secretly wanting mommy to turn it on for me. She did, and I shocked her by smiling and following the puppies with my eyes each time they turned around. She was super proud of me! :)

Today was super special... I got my picture taken with Santa, and I didn't even cry! Mommy, Daddy, and Uncle Aaron put up our Christmas tree and some decorations around the house too... I could really get used to this holiday! Hopefully Santa will bring me lots of diapers and formula for Christmas... at least that's what Mommy wants. If it were up to me I'd have lots of super hot clothes and little shoes, and I suppose some books too to make me nice and smart. :) My favorite thing is going to be shopping with Mommy for all the gifts I'm giving out... yay for my first Christmas!

I can't help but feel bad for the Wahoos... they tried so hard to beat my Hokies, but they just couldn't do it.
It was a super good game; I watched the whole thing with my daddy. I'm so proud of those boys, and I can't wait to see them take on BC again... you all remember how I feel about BC, so hopefully it'll end with a smile this time. :) Oh yeah... BY THE WAY... I'm starting to control my smiles... yaaaaay for me!
Turkey Day is so much fun; I can't wait until I actually know what it is and can eat turkey! :) My grandparents came over to visit, so I got to play with them while Mommy and Daddy cooked dinner for us.
I had a super hot outfit on too... I'm lucky Mommy got my big head through it!
Turkey really does make you tired... who knew?

Sunday was a big day for baby Reese... she turned 1 month old! She's changed A LOT! She's 2 lbs heavier than she was at birth; she loves her milk! Reese is able to lift her head fairly well when we do tummy time, but she is awesome at holding it up when you hold her upright... not a ragdoll anymore. She's able to focus on mommy and daddy's face, and she's smiling a lot more... hopefully she's practicing for the "REAL" smile. Her daddy and I can't wait for the adventures the next month holds (as long as it entails more sleeping!) Happy birthday baby! :)
Saturday was the big football game... Florida State. Cyn and her mom made the trip in to enjoy watching Beamer FINALLY kick Bowden's buttocks. Reese got to go to her very first tailgate. It was super cold, so she spent most of her time in the car sleeping, but frankly mommy needed to get out of the house! :) She got to wear her little cheerleading outfit too! Yay for the Hokies!!

Thanks to Mere we're trying a new routine with baby Reese. EASY... eat, activity, sleep, and you time. The you time seems to be a real joke thus far, but hopefully that chunk will become longer. I started using it yesterday, and it was actually pretty fun! We did so many great things: we read one of Reese's baby Einstein books, we had a blast in her new jungle swing, and tummy time turned in to a great photo shoot. ENJOY!
Here I am in my new swing looking all kinds of sweet. :)
This was right before I spit up all over my blanket.
Tummy time makes me cry. I try so hard...
I'll have it some day. :(
Mommy finally rescued me, but not before taking my picture. :)
Here I am... happy again... why do I have to learn to lift my head anyway? ;)

Well, this year was Reese's first Halloween, and I don't think she was at all amused. :) We dressed her up as a little pumpkin and then exploited her in a plethora of photographs... ENJOY!
She's obviously not very excited with our choice of costume... it's only a matter of time I suppose before she wants to be Dora the Explorer or even worse... a Disney princess!
Here is Reese with her pumpkin her daddy picked out for her before she was born. She may have also just pooed herself. :)
She was much happier with us once we took her hat off, but not to worry...
We put everything right back on her once she fell asleep. She may not have liked the pumpkin, but she's bound to love her costume for next year... yes I've already purchased it! :) Mommy loves the sales!!!!
