Greatest Intentions

I have been keeping up with Reese's milestones the way all good mothers do...scribbled on random pieces of paper stuck inside books, magazines, purses, etc.  We have been so busy and she is growing up so fast, that another week passes before I know it.  I am going to post here before I forget.

Reese was 4 months on July 15 and here are some tidbits.

  • "talking" nonstop.  She is quite the little chatterbox
  • loves when someone talks to her.  
  • laughs constantly
  • adores her brother
  • adored by her brother
  • eats 5 ounces per sitting
  • sleeps from 10 pm-830 am at night, usually goes back to sleep after eating until late morning.  Awake most of the day
  • seems to be teething
  • sucks her fist so hard that you can hear her across the room.  
  • hates being on her tummy
  • wants to sit up and can with assistance
  • has rolled from back to side(s), but does not like being on her tummy
  • Wears size 2 diapers
  • Wears 3-6 months clothes
  • Still cannot wear a hairbow because her hair is so fine
  • has the chubbiest and cutest little legs
  • rarely cries.  When she does, she is either wet, hungry or tired
  • has the same bright blue eyes as Ben, but not quite as big. 
  • has brown hair with a reddish tint (yes, I said it...red)
  • blesses all every day. 
We love you so much!

Ben is always making me and everyone laugh.  As smart and charming as is, I am already preparing myself for him being the class clown.  His new favorite game, and he does not know how much he learns, is to give you a letter and a hint and make you guess what he is thinking.  Tonight the game started out harmless.

Ben:  F-ffffffff, bees make honey from this
Me:  fork?  No?  french fries?  Oh, flowers :)

Ben:  G,gggggg, outside and you walk on it
Me:  Grapes?  Goopies (I make up words just to hear him laugh), No?  Oh, grass!

Ben:  B,bbbbbb, in the refridgerator and you drink it
Me:  uh, bubbles??  barnacles?  I have no idea
Ben:  You know mommy, Beer!!

Happy Fourth of July

We usually have lots of beach pictures from our annual 4th of July beach trip to share.  However, we did not plan a vacation the week this year because we thought we would be moving in.  Well, we made the best of it and had a great time at church in the bouncy houses, watching the parade and seeing the fireworks.

We have light(s)

Over the island in the kitchen

We have plants (at least for now)
