Reesie eats cereal

Today we tried to give Reese rice cereal for the first time. At first she was happy and thought she was really cute sitting in the big girl highchair.
She was happy to try something new.
MMMMM that tastes pretty good.
Give me more momma. Your not doing it fast enough.
Never mind. I just want the boo-boo. Don't upset the baby:) She did eat a little bit and liked it while it lasted.

Dance, Dance Baby

My life is about to get very busy. With Raegan in pre-school two days a week for 1 hour, and Riley in half day kindergarten I feel like I am always going here and picking up so and so. As if that weren't enough--I put Raegan in a creative movement dance class. She absolutely loves it. She got a cute new pink leotard. My sister Rebecca gave her a little dance skirt to go with it. She thinks she is pretty hot stuff. I'm glad she enjoys her class.

Can you tell she LOVES to have her picture taken??? What a funny girl. Little miss poser.

When I went to sign up Raegan for dancing Riley asked me if he was going to dancing too. I asked him if he wanted to and he said yes. So I thought why not let him if he wants to. I asked him if he wanted to do hip-hop or tumbling. He said hip-hop (like he even knows the difference). Then I told him maybe it would be better if he did tumbling because he can do flips like a super hero. That was the magic words he LOVES tumbling. He was very excited that he has 3 other boys in his class too. The kids go once a week for a half an hour each. We also registered Riley for soccer-his choice. It starts Sept. 20th. It will be fun to see the kinds of things our kids are good at and like to do. Maybe Riley will be better at tumbling than sports. Maybe he won't like either and will want to play the piano:)LOL.

Daddy's idea of babysitting

This was so funny I had to share. Russ was walking around holding the baby. It was great because it freed up my arms so I could do some stuff. Well, Russ had to take a shower and I knew he didn't have the babies bouncy seat in the bathroom with him (because it was in the kitchen where I was). I went in to see if I could be of service and this is what he had rigged up. He is so knowledgeable. I would have never thought of that. Silly daddy.

Reese 4 months old

Reese is such a happy, fun baby. She is always smiling at us.

Silly girl!!
Time is flying by. I guess that comes with babies. Reese is so much fun. We can't get enough of her. She would sleep all day and all night if I would let her. We will always go in and wake her up from her 3 hour naps, just to hold her and kiss her. She will fall back to sleep if it has been 10 minutes or an hour later. If she lays in her bed on her tummy she instantly finds her thumb and out she goes. It is really kindof funny. What a blessing she is to us and our home. As you can tell from the pictures she is super cute too:)

"I'm not tired, I'm not tired!!!"

Those are the words that Raegan told me yesterday when I told her it was time to have "rest time." This past week she has been super grouchy. She only takes naps now once in awhile. I thought I would try and "make" her and see if it helped her attitude any. She really was convinced she didn't need a nap. I told her to lay down for 5 minutes, then I would check on her and if she wasn't asleep she could get up. This is what I found when I went to check on her....

Nope, I don't think she was tired. She was so exhasted she couldn't even get all the way into her bed:) Silly girl.

First day of school

What a ham!! She loves the camera.
She looked so cute with her little panda back pack. Raegan started preschool today. She is in a 3 year old class. She goes Mondays and Wednesdays for 1 hour. It's just right for her this year. She was soooo excited to finally be going to school like her brother. She is normally kindof shy but when I picked her up her teacher said she was not shy at all.

Riley went to kindergarten today. He was so happy to finally be going to the "big" school. His teacher is Mrs. Romney. She is great. He has 24 kids in his class. Today the parents went and it was only a half day. He kept telling me "why are you coming with me?, I want you to just drop me off." How rude. Doesn't he know how hard this is on me. I'm glad that he is so excited about it. I hope his enthusiasm for school stays.

For Bubba!!!

Here is Triston and Kir'sea on their first day of school. These are my sister Rebecca's kids. Triston is going to 3rd grade and his teacher is Mrs. Brown. Kir'sea is in 2nd grade and has Mrs. Simms as a teacher. Don't they look soo cute in their new school clothes? Good luck guys. Be good and learn alot this year. We love you.

Mommy's little helper

Raegan LOVES to be mommy's little helper. She is always wanting to help me in the kitchen with whatever I am making. She loves wearing her little panda apron. However, she eats the whole time she helps, and much more gets on her face than in her mouth. Such a little girl and such a little mommy:)

Sweet Reese

Here is our sweet little Reese Mae. She is so much fun. She is starting to laugh alot when we play with her. She is very ticklish. She is growing and changing everyday. She sleeps threw the night and is so quiet and patient. We could not ask for a more sweet, wonderful baby.
