Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas! Reese and Noah had such a fun time on their first Christmas...
Reese went to the doctor for a check-up, and the scale went up again! She is now 13 pounds and 23.5 inches. Reese also tried out her first bottle today so she is ready for Mommy to go back to work in a couple weeks (TEAR), and she took it like a champ! She is a greater eater, just like her parents!

Reese Reese was one spoiled little girl! She now as more clothes than her Mama and is starting quite the toy collection...

So cute!

There isn't too much new to report on. Reese is doing great! She keeps on growing and is cuter than ever. She is working on her smile too. Sometimes she even seems to laugh. We aren't sure if they are from gas, but I like to think it's because she is so happy we are her family!

One Day: Two Things to Celebrate!

"Hooray! I am 1 Month old!"
The happy dance. "Aunt CarCar is home! (Don't mind my double chin.)"
"How about this for tummy time! Am I strong, or what?"
"Uncle Jack, you are so warm and cozy."

Yesterday, Reese turned 1 month old! AND, Auntie Carissa came home! We had a last minute gathering at Granmda Kathy's for some pizza and a chance to welcome Carissa home. We couldn't be more excited! Now, the gang is all here!

Double Digits!

Reese went in for a check-up and she is up to 10 lbs 6 ozs! (One pound in 2 weeks!) She is only 1/4 inch longer - 22 1/4 inches long! She did great! No crying and very alert. The doctor was impressed.

In the next month we get to look forward to her smiling back at us and responding more to sounds. She is doing better at night... just one or sometimes two nightly feedings. Besides all her grunting and tooting at night, she is becoming a sleeping champ.

3 weeks old! (Look cousin Noah, I have a picture in the laundry basket too... and it was warm!)
