Reese got her shots as you can see above, with all of her bandaids,but she was a champ. She screamed bloody murder which I honestly would too with how hard they stab those suckers in there,but within a minute had calmed down. She was still sticking out her lower lip and giving me the how dare you let them hurt me look,but we survived.
Reese still uses both hands to pick things up and grasp them, but to us it seems she is slightly favoring her right hand. However, we know this could change.
She definitely knows her name, and will look and turn when we call her. She also knows Mama and Papa. We play where is Mama and Where is Papa game, and she will look at the correct person when we ask.
Reese is starting to like baths more and more. She chews on some of the bath toys now, and has started splashing.
Reese is wearing 9-12 month clothes. Mainly 9 month clothes in everyday wear,but 12 month sleepers since she is so tall.
So far, Reese doesn’t sleep in. If we keep her up past her bed time of 6/6:30 she will still wake up at 6/6:30ish.
Reese loves watching the garage door open and close especially when it is time for Papa to come home. She will bounce in my arms and roar/screech/smile when Grant gets home.
We sing a lot of songs and she likes those,but she only wants to eat books these days. We don’t read too many right now because she just gets mad that I don’t let her eat them.
At night, she is now needing her cloth diapers with two liners. She still sleeps through the night,but will occasionally wake up if she has a very wet or dirty diaper. We change it, and put her right back down, and she is out cold.
Reese loves her lamb teether that Aunt Sandi got for her. You cannot take it away without her actually crying or implementing her new fake cry that she can turn off and on at will. It the lamb is always our last resort toy, so if Reese is fussy and we have tried everything then it is time to bust out the lamb.
We live a 15 minute walk with all side walks to our library. So here is one of the puppet shows that we went to, but now we go to 0-12 month story time where they only let 15 kids in. Then they also have 0-3 year old story time as well. So, we have been going around 2-3 times a week to the library which is wonderful since everything is free. Reese even has her own library card.
Here is a video of Reese sitting, and then getting distracted and falling backwards. She also gets more frustrated with things these days.
She also enjoyed kicking the door while I showered and listening to the thumping noise it made.
Reese is a lot more vocal these days. She can also say babababababa, but I just didn’t catch it on video. When saying Babababa, she will stick her tongue out and curl if up toward her nose. It is kinda comical.
Reese likes to “Godzilla” her crib. She will spend time ripping her crib liner things that I sewed down and chewing on them or just pushing them down so she can see the rest of her room.
We always play before putting her down to bed and her bedtime routine. Here is Grant and Reese, giving a real and then fake laugh.
Just a cute video of activities when it was still nice outside.
She is getting much better with hand eye coordination. She might not drink from the bottle,but she can pick it up,etc.
We go very high class when eating out- Sam’s Club has very inexpensive food, and it is pretty good. If you like their hot dog/brats, they are Nathan’s brand (which are gluten free, biproduct free, no artifical flavors or colors), and they make their pizza pretty fresh. So when Grant and I go there to eat it costs us a whopping $3.79 for a meal. Anyway, this was the first time Reese was allow to suck on the pizza just to get a taste, of course she loved it. She loves all food in general that we have given her thus far. If she sees us eating or drinking these days, she will start smacking her lips, licking her lips, and giving you the stare down.
Here is a video of Reese eating dried mango, she loves it as well as any fruit or foods. She still has no teeth,but she doesn’t let that stop her.
