Reese @ 18 months…

What…I have an 18 month old!!?  Yes, I do…a beautiful, charismatic, healthy, and energetic baby girl!!  What did we do before this Princess entered our world?  She definitely makes our lives more wonderful!!  Robbie and I are so in LOVE with Miss Reese!!  I also know all her grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins are in LOVE, too!!

This month Reese has a love for “Fishies”!!  She likes Nemo the movie (since she was 12 months), Nemo fruit chews, and the fishies at Wal-Mart or Pet Smart!  She will tap on the pantry door and say, “Fishie, Fishie!”  I am always amazed at how much she knows and understands! 

Our baby girl is Miss Independent!!  She wants to do everything by herself.  At meal times she feeds herself with her spoon and fork or hands.  Yogurt is one of her favorites.  Reese loves to make a mess, but she really gets messy with Go-Gurt!   Her Daddy taught Reese to take trash to the garbage can, so that is becoming a “fun” thing to do!  She loves to help me load the dryer and sort the clothes.  I will love it when the time comes and Reese can fold the laundry…and put the clothes up! 

It is so exciting to see things for the FIRST time through my daughter’s eyes.  Like a bowling ball being spit out of the ball return…she got sooooo excited and covered her mouth with her hands in amazement!!  She loves it when she hears an airplane and will point to the sky!  Or when we saw bunnies and a baby deer running wild on our morning walk…her face lights up and is one of my favorites things to see on daily basis!! 

These pictures are on her actual 18th month birthday (June 12th).  I treated her with an orange cream slushie from Sonic.  She loved it!!  After a wonderful Mexican lunch date with Tully and friends, she rested on her air mattress…another fave of the month!!

Happy 18 months baby Reese!!  We are so lucky to have YOU in our lives!!  We LOVE You!

Here is a beautiful poem I leave you with…Enjoy!

There are little eyes upon you,
And they are watching night and day;
There are little ears that quickly take
In every word you say;
There are little hands all eager to do
Everything you do,
And a little child who's dreaming of
The day she'll be like you.
You're the little child's idol,
You're the wisest of the wise,
In her little mind about you,
No suspicions ever rise;
She believes in you devoutly,
Holds all you say and do;
She will say and do in your way when
She's grown up to be like you.
There's a wide-eyed little child who
Believes you're always right,
And her ears are always open and she
Watches day and night;
You are setting an example
Everyday in all you do
For the little child who's waiting
To grow up to be like you.
