Hi from my hiney... CLASSY huh?Just wanted to update you on my new room. Mommy and Daddy made some decisions this weekend. First off I am definitely leaving my old room behind. It only had one window, so my baby sister will be able to sleep soundly as opposed to my new room which has 2. Second off Mommy and Daddy have decided not to try to move me to my big girl day bed until they know for sure I'm ready. This in turn means I'll need a new crib/converter that will turn into a sweet mini-me day bed when I'm ready. Here it is. Imagine it in antique white and without that heinous bedding.

Rachel here. Well, Reese definitely seems to be on the mend. She still has a bit of a runny nose but is a lot less restless at night. There are a couple of blogs that I read that show adorable pictures of their children while they are sick. The little ones seem so calm, quiet, and very cuddly. Granted Reese hasn't really been HORRIBLY sick, but she has never been like these sweet cuddly children. She goes 100 mph 24/7 no matter what. Maybe one day she'll cuddle with us. :)

... I just don't get it. How can my nose be running one second and the very next... clogged and crusty?

Mommy definitely jipped me on seven words, so I thought I would share. I also know the words banana, night night, pretty, all done, bath, fish, and frog... gosh Mom way to make me look like a bonehead. ;) That brings me up to 32!!!
I'm also coming down with a lovely cold. Mommy got a super cute picture of me playing with my tissues, but the camera is on the fritz... what else is new? Definitely don't be surprised if we don't post for a while until I'm on the up and up again! :)

... weighing in at 23 lbs 11 ozs and 32 inches long... REESE PATTISON! That's right... I went to the pediatrician today. My weight puts me in the 50th percentile and my length is in the 80th percentile. Everything checked out wonderfully... so wonderfully in fact I don't have to go back at 18 months... the doc doesn't need to see me until about 20 months... YAAAAY! I did great with my shots too. I got the MMR and my second flu shot. The flu shot went in without even a flinch... MMR... got a little grunt and whine, but NO TEARS! I'm a big girl! My umbilical hernia is still in full effect. We keep praying it closes on it's own to avoid surgery, but it's not looking promising.
... weighing in at 5 lbs 13 ozs and 19 inces long... ALY FUNK! Happy one week birthday!
Yep, that's right... calm and carefree. Mommy is hoping this is a great sign for when my baby sister makes her grand entrance. We'll see though.
Aly I can't wait to be lifelong friends and for you to run around and play with me!
For Valentine's Day Daddy took Mommy and me to the mountains of Tennessee. We had an adorable cabin and had lots of family time. This time of year is always hard on Mommy and me because Daddy is out of town for 2 whole months. While we do get to travel with him, he goes into work around 8 every morning and then is home around 1 am. He can come home to visit us at lunch and dinner, but 2ish hours a day with Daddy just isn't enough for us.

We went to the doc today for Mommy's 20 week ultrasound... you know what that means...
That's right world... I'm having a baby sister! We're super excited! Mommy and Daddy already said I could name her. It's too close to call right now... I'm thinking either "Dog Socks" or "Duck Shoes". I'll post a poll later. ;)
While she still looks like a little alien in this picture... we thought she was still pretty cute.
Oh and here is Mommy with her buddah. She's still getting sick, but is otherwise pretty comfortable. I like to play with her belly button and am starting to say 'baby' more and more. I'm getting very good at feeding my baby doll her bottle and giving her her paci, so I know I'll be a great helper come June/July.
Looks like Mommy will be packing up all the little boy clothes she bought the other day at her big sale. Maybe next time... GIRL POWER! :)
Sunday we met the Coles in Roanoke for some brunch. I got to see my Jack. This was about as close as we got to one another:
Mostly though... we just ran around and flopped ourselves on the ground... Good times. :)

The sale started at 10 am. I was going to hit up the one in town AT 10, then make my way to the second one in Roanoke. There is a 2nd one in Roanoke, but it's not owned by the same lady, so I wasn't sure if they would be doing the sale as well. To my surprise THEY WERE! 3 stores... $10 each... TOTAL SPENT $31.50.
Here is the breakdown:
Merchandise~36 shirts, 2 coats, 8 pairs of pants, 23 onsies, and 8 one piece outfits
Original $$ Totals~ $124.50 +$38.50+$155.50 =$318.50

Yesterday Mommy let me play with some Play-Doh while she was doing the dishes.
(Look at those honker teeth! Mommy apologizes to me daily for that gap... sigh.)

Mommy let me play in the snow before dinner tonight for the FIRST TIME! It was sooooooo cool! All I really wanted to do though was walk laps around the backyard. It was exhilerating!

Look what I did ALL BY MYSELF!
Saturday night Mommy and Daddy took me to Kabuki with them and their friends for dinner! Kabuki is a hibachi style restaurant (where they cook the food right there in front of you). Mommy and Daddy were POSITIVE I would have a blast and clap and scream the entire time, so they were sure to bring the camera. This is how I looked the ENTIRE time our chef was cooking our meals.It wasn't until he was done cooking, and I was done eating (super yummy food... I had SHRIMP!), that I came back out of my shell and wanted to party down!
