16 Months and Counting....

This is Reese.  She is 16 months old.  She is onery.
This is Reese in her fur coat.  Every girl needs a fur coat, right?  A dry clean only fur coat for babies.  It's practical and beautiful!  Reese thought so too.  She refused to leave her bedroom without the fur coat.  That's the way she rolls. 

This is Reese with her cell phone.  Babies need cell phones too, but you knew that already didn't you?  Her favorite part of the cell phone is when it has a picture on the screen.  Reese likes the picture very much.  She likes it so much that she will throw it down on the ground if there is no picture and scream, "Ugh!" at me until it has a picture.  "Ugh" in baby language translates 16 years later to: "I hate you, you ruined my life."  We are so looking forward to the teenage years. 

This is Reese in her favorite chair.  This chair is her favorite because she can now climb into it all by herself.  She's become an avid climber.  In fact, this morning when she was supposed to be in her room in her crib sleeping, I heard a scream and a few minutes later a child appeared at the shower door.  This translated at 16 looks strikingly like a thud from a 2nd floor window to meet her boyfriend down the block.

And actually, there are many good things about this beautiful girl too.  She loves her blankie and calls it, Nigh-nigh.  She lights up like a candle when she sees it at the end of the day. She pats us on the back when we pick her up to hug her.  She even pats her friends on the back at day care when they are upset.  She loves kisses and snuggles and her thumb.  Reese could gobble up Nutri-Grain bars like candy and she often goes to the kitchen to point to the cabinet that they are in until she gets one.

Reese is our angel.  And we couldn't love her more!
