Rachel here. It seems Reese is on the mends. For the first time in 3 days we've had solid poop. Who knew I would be so excited for my baby girl to have solid poop? :) Meanwhile both Bryan and I have had small issues with the same ailment as Reese. Hopefully we'll all be feeling much better by the morning!

Great visual huh? Rachel here. Reese is officially sick. No temperature yet, but she awoke this morning to a crib full of vomit... last night's dinner, which she barely ate... yum. She's had no appetite all day. At naptime she slept soundly... so soundly she didn't realize she had diarrhead in her diaper and gotten it in other places besides her diaper. It's been that way all day. We've been trying to keep liquids in her... water... powerade... but she wants nothing to do with milk right now. She's been playing all day like a crazy woman though, so I'm not sure she realizes she's a walking time bomb. Bless her heart.

This is what I woke up to this morning! SNOW! And a whopping 31 degrees (@9:15 am)! Have fun walking to class Uncle Aaron! :)

Rachel here. Last Thursday Reese had her one year appointment. It ended up actually being her 1 year, 1 month, 1 day appointment, but I digress. She's doing wonderfully. I'm not sure of the percentages, but she weighed in at 22 lbs 3 oz and was 31 1/2 inches tall. She's still in the upper percentages for her height and head circumference. Her weight is the same scenario but not as high. She's just so active it's hard to keep weight on her. There is no change in her umbilical hernia sadly. Doc said if it's not closed by the time she is 2, he'll be referring her for surgery. We'll cross that bridge once we get there though. He says everything else is developing nicely and she's right on target.

Rachel here. Bryan and I got Reese this adorable giant purple monkey balloon for her birthday. She wanted nothing to do with it... that was until it started to lose helium and she could reach it. :) Now this is what she does to the poor thing for a good chunk of each day.
Rachel here. This is now what I hear most evenings when Bryan gets home:
The piggies seemed to be more my speed.
They were giving elephant rides!!! Mommy was afraid I would throw one of my precious temper tantrums once getting on the elephant, so she didn't even ask Daddy if she could take me. We got a neat picture of it anyway. Look at the GIRAFFES!!!I got to hang out with a donkey too. Hawt I tell you!
Yes you read correctly... that says FOAMHENGE... not to be confused with STONEHENGE. Last Saturday was Pattison Family Fun Day... which you know is always an adventure. We decided to get in the car and head up to Natural Bridge, VA. We'd never seen the bridge, and since it's an ancient wonder (I think anyway), we thought we'd take a peek.

We voted yesterday... did you? Mommy, Daddy, Uncle Aaron and I headed over to the polls early yesterday morning to make history! I say that because first it was Mommy's maiden voyage partaking in the voting process. Can you believe it? Her first time! She was so excited... she wanted to take the camera into the booth with her. Daddy said no, and she settled on getting a shot of us in our stickers once we got home.
Look what Mommy bought me:
No silly... it's not yummy red spaghetti! It's PLAY-DOH!!! I had so much fun trying to eat it...... rolling it...

I'm not sure I grasp the whole Halloween thing quite yet. I mean Mommy dressed me in this ridiculous outfit... I was a little pink leopard cat like creature... IIII dunno!
Daddy finally came home and we gave all of our precious treats to high schoolers. Why couldn't I have the candy? Trick-or-treating is for little kids...
