Rachel here. I'll be damned if this isn't MY child...

Rachel here. Every day/night before Reese goes down for her nap or to bed she kindly gives me a kiss. She gives Bryan a kiss. Even little Emma Grace gets a kiss. If you're visiting... you too will get a kiss from our sweet girl. But this... this is a little much. I swear to you she does this... WITHOUT being prompted...
Perhaps we should take this as a sign that we watch far too much television?
You all and your silly swaddling... I CANNOT be contained!
So Auntie Lu and Amy B came over today for a mini playdate. Seriously could these kids be ANY cuter?
Check it out people! I done got my drivers' licence! Holler!
Nana came to visit us this week, and we had a blast! Not a lot of pictures were taken because seriously people there are only so many pictures you can take of us a) shopping or b) eating. ;) Fun was had by all, and we miss her terribly already!

Rachel here. So Friday we took the girls into the ped's office for a check up. It was technically Reese's 18 month. Back when Reese had her 15 month the doc said he didn't need to see her again until she was 20 months. Then when she turned 20 months, we missed our appt because we were in Iowa... so alas... her 18 month appt turned into her 21 month appt. :) You'll be happy to hear she weighs a whopping 26 lbs 8 oz. and is just shy of 34 inches tall. Dr. McElroy said she is developing quite well. Her allergies and umbilical hernia are both on our radar. We're still praying that her hernia closes! Her allergies are such a pain! She has an added friend... a sty! Doc said to continue giving her Claritin and added a warm compress daily for her eye. I asked him the recommendation for actually getting her to stay still for the compress... he kindly went on to the next topic and smiled... meaning we're on our own to be creative. :) B's idea... he made 2 compresses and put one on his eye to try to get her to mimic him (she's mimicking EVERYTHING these days, so we thought this was the GREATEST idea)... she was on to us... she looked at him with this crazy look and then yelled "no." Good times.
Pearl's work friends were lovely enough to send my sister and I Tootsie Roll banks FULL of quarters! I'd like to thank those kind folks for both: being SO kind and generous to us AND for providing me with hours of endless entertainment!
What else do we do on a pretty day? Why we go to The Duck Pond of course, but this time I had Grandpa and Pearl with me!
P.S. Thank you Grandma and Grandaddy for the cute VT gear!
It's Saturday... you know what Saturday means? That's right folks... time to mow the lawn!
One of my favorite places to go is to the playground at the mall. Mommy likes it too because there isn't much I can hurt myself on without her being all up on my jock. Not to mention it's air conditioned. :) Last week Mommy's good friend Amy D met us there and hung out for a couple of hours. Mommy could not have been more grateful for Amy because I can be a handful ( I know people go ahead and lift your bottom jaws off the floor now), and now with the sister... outings are few and far between unless Daddy is home.

Oh Mommy wanted me to tell you that you owe her 5 diaper changes as of 850 this morning from last night (and that's just from me). She is also thawing out some of my milk from the freezer, so she said you need to be ready to give me a feeding tonight because she is "too pooped to party." You should also buy Mommy something pretty because Reese is being less than enjoyable! Ewww... I think I smell her... gotta go!

Well hello there! Emma Grace here! That's right! Mommy said since I'm 1 MONTH OLD I get to start adding my two cents to this here blog. Aren't you excited?! So here is the famous monthly shot:
I was SO excited to FINALLY get to see/ride it! Mommy and Daddy had been promising me ALL morning... I was beginning to believe it was a farce!It took us on a long adventurous ride. One where we saw a real life cowboy brawl! Check out the view Daddy and I had:
