Reese Turns One

We celebrated with a little party with close family and her friends for her birthday. It was sweet, simple and easy!

I am so far behind on posts but wanted to make sure that I caught the highpoints in our little ones' lives so with plenty of pictures to follow we will begin with Reese turning 1.
She weighed 18 pounds (5th %)

She was in the 25th % for height

She eats everything in sight! At 1 she was off the bottle and was drinking whole milk like a big girl and was eating only table food. She loves food and makes a constant noise the entire time she eats until she is satisfied (slightly annoying)

She began walking around 11 1/2 months and is basically running in circles now. She loves to be chased and will squint her nose up and close her eyes when she is being chased.

She still adores Owen and often grabs his hand when riding in the car. He is such a great big brother; constantly taking care of her and sharing his food with her. He loves her just as much as she loves him. Cole is always protective and doesn't want anyone to bother his sister I can only imagine what this means for Reese's future.

She loves for me to sing "Good Morning to You" and "This is the Day" when I wake her up in the mornings.

She loves to "Patty Cake" and sing "Wheels on the Bus". She does the round and round and swish swish swish motions.

She has gotten to be a "Mommy's Girl" and loves to give love and love on me when someone else (her Daddy) wants her :)

She brings so much joy to our lives and it is impossible to remember what it was like without our little girl. We thank you Father for blessing us and keeping us and pray that you will work wonders in little Reese's life and all that she does will bring honor and glory to You.
