Reese’s Top 21 @ 21 months!!!


1.  Cheese.  Reese has become quite the “poser”.  When you say, “Cheese” Reese strikes a pose…usually with her hands on her hips!!  She started doing this while we were on vacation!  It’s pretty funny to see!

2.  Preschool.  Reese started preschool on September 8th!  It is a playschool that has been going strong for 25 years.  She loved it so much that she didn’t want to leave!!  There are 5 other kids in her class and she has two teachers…Ms. Beth and Ms. Sarah.  Reese is going on Tuesday mornings from 9-11:50am.  The pictures below are from her 1st day…she had a rough start.  Reese is NOT a morning person!

3.  Funny Faces.  Reese loves to make funny faces.  If you watch Yo Gabba Gabba you understand.  She also has a happy and mad face which are pretty cute!!

4.  Exercise.  Reese loves to work out with me and Jillian Michaels!  I think she likes the push-ups and kick boxing moves the best!!  We also had a trial gymnastics class at a local gym last week and learned that Reese does not like to wait her turn!  She does like to crawl through tunnels and the monkey bars!

5.  Cheers.  Celebrations are everyday at our house!  Reese has to “Cheers” our cups morning, noon, and night!!

6.  Happy Birthday!  Our little performer loves to sing Happy Birthday then pretend to blow out the candle!! 

7.  Quiet & LOUD.  Reese has learned the difference between a quiet voice and loud voice.  It is fun to watch her demonstrate!

8.  Tee-Tee.  Reese started showing interest in using the BIG potty when we stayed with my friend Tamara and her little girl Lilly.  Lilly is just recently potty trained…Reese was thrilled to sit on her “Dora” seat.  We now have a Sesame Street potty seat at our house.  She will point to her diaper and say “tee-tee”. We will place her on the throne, but we haven’t had a successful showing of tee-tee!

9.  Brave.  Reese continues to have NO fear…good in some ways, scary in others!!

10.  Hair Twirl.  Yes, our little girl has always had an infatuation with hair. Now, she has also become quite the hair twirler!  Thank goodness we haven’t had any major knots!!

11.    Shoes.  Reese can put her crocs on all by herself and usually has them on the RIGHT feet!  She also loves to wear Mommy and Daddy’s shoes!

12.  Drawing.  It can be a dry erase board, Daddy’s ipod, or a plain piece of paper…Reese loves to draw.  Circles are her forte!

13.  Pacifier.  This is Reese’s buddy!!  She likes to have it when she is sleepy and sometimes just because.  She will point to her mouth and say “Pappy” when it is nowhere to be found!

14.  Detangler.  Every morning we have to spray Reese’s hair with Detangler.  She loves it!

15.  Imagination.  Reese is learning the concept and will make you “199” vanilla ice cream cones a day!  She had a wonderful time exploring the Greensboro Children’s Museum.  The museum gave her ample opportunities to “pretend”!

16.  Loving.  Reese is so affectionate and caring towards others.  She is gentle around babies and is quite the little mommy!

17.  Blonde.  Yes, Reese has become blondie over the summer!!

18.  Fishie.  She loves fish and lives to go down the fish aisle in Wal-mart!  I think she may be getting a fish of her own very soon!

19.  Naps.  Usually one a day…lasting anywhere from 45 minutes to 3 hours. 

20.    Technology.  Reese is definitely a child of 2009.  She can work her daddy’s ipod touch in seconds and walks around the house listening to “Reese’s tunes” on her mommy’s ipod nano.

21.  Happy.  Reese makes our family so HAPPY!  We love our Brown Eyed Girl and love to see her grow and learning new things!!  Happy 21 months!!
