Growing that is! Rachel here. In the last week my wee one has mastered crawling... not just the Army crawl anymore... the REAL DEAL. Emma Grace has also began feeding herself. I've been putting Puffs and Yogurt Melts in front of her for probably a month now... with a whole lot of nothing in return. She would just sit there and smile waiting for me to put a tiny morsel into her mouth for her. Today, I put them down on Reese's art tray, and she had them in her mouth before I could put the lid on the container. :)

Rachel here. So yesterday I turned 30-1. Ugh. While I do still have one year until the actual three o... it stares me in the face each and every day. How the hell did I get to be almost 30? I could barf. Anywhoodle... we "celebrated" by getting out of town for a night/day and shopping to make me feel better. :) The 4 of us headed to Tennessee to the outlets in Pigeon Forge. While Pigeon Forge is like Virginia Beach on meth... we enjoy going because they have some fun cute things for kids to do. Reese and Emma Grace are too young to do most of everything there, but we'll enjoy taking them in the coming years nonetheless, and we had a blast doing some things Saturday night and into Sunday.
Saturday afternoon we headed to Grandma and Grandaddy's neck of the woods for my first round of Easter Egg hunting. I practiced that morning, so I knew what I was about to encounter (however, I was not prepared for the kid who ran all of us wee ones over and grabbed eggs at what seemed like mach speed)... I mentally prepared nonetheless.
Mommy now has TWO children to fight with each day to brush their teeth... her excitement is completely overwhelming...
Rachel here. We've apparently told Reese one too many times that she looks cute/beautiful because now she is not at all afraid to declare it to the world at the most random times/places. "Oh Mommy look at me... I so beeeeuuuuful! I so cute!" This is said in the shrilliest of girly voices and is both disgustingly adorable and disgustingly vain. :)

Rachel here. We've had some big stuff happening in this house the last couple of days. First... Reese has been completely pull up free/strictly underpants now for 2 days. This includes underpants during nap and bedtime. She's doing AWESOME! If we can just get through this roadtrip this weekend without any accidents, I'll call her completely potty trained! We can officially bid a farewell to the Lightning McQueen underpants and her beloved potty chart.
In the world of Emma Grace there are some big things happening as well! She can officially go from a sitting to a laying down position as well as a laying down to a sitting position. Her chicken mango risotto was devoured in mere seconds leading me to believe she enjoys chicken. Here is our biggest news though... she's perfected her Army crawl! We're getting closer!
