Reece Pics and Playdate!

I just realized that Reece has not been in several posts - so I wanted to add some updated pictures . She is growing up waaaayyyy too fast! Reece is 7 1/2 months old, and honestly is the sweetest, cutest, best baby ever. I know i'm her mom, but she is the best!!! So enjoyable!!
Here are few things Reece has been up to lately:
- Got her first two teeth. (on the bottom)
- Is a great eater - she eats three solid meals a day and usually has three bottles a day
- goes to bed between 6:30 and 7:00 and wakes up around 7:30.
- Takes one long (usually 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 hours)
- sits up really well on own - Reece loves to take toys out of bowls and baskets
- love the exersaucer and jumperoo
- hates being on her belly and seems to have no interest in crawling
- is obsessed with Ava
- babbles and high pitch squeals a lot - She sounds like she are talking Chinese!
- can wave bye bye and give kisses

A few weeks ago, Reece and I went to El Dorado to meet some special friends! We met sweet Lottie Doddridge and Reece's future husband Eli Hurst. We had a great time just hanging out. Lottie's mommy Mary and Eli's mommy Amanda are college friends of mine - so it was great for our kids to meet! There is six months between each of the kids. I wish we could all get together more often. Eli and Lottie are two of the sweetest and cutest kids ever!

Thanks Mary for hosting the play date! Your house was sooo cute - I love it.

The Grape Festival

I am laughing at myself - because this was soooo long ago. But I am still attempting to catch up - It's going to be 2010 before I get everything from 2009 blogged about. Ugh well!

We met our good friends the Harris's at the Grape Festival - Ava and Natalie had a ball running from ride to ride. I was very proud of Ava, she was very brave. (Which is big for her) If I remember correctly our camera battery died after we had been there for about 15 minutes. It was a fun evening!

Carter - Man!!!!!!!!!!

Okay - so surprise, surprise - I have been a bad blogger lately!!! Somethings just don't change! I am so amazed at you all that blog everyday, or every week for that matter. Anyways, in an effort to catch up with everything I have to blog about I am starting back in July. Yes, I said July. I know it's October, but a lot has happened, so I am just going to start back in the summer.

In July, our good friends the Moss' came to visit. Bryson, Dee, and Carter used to live down the street from us. They were such great friends - the kind that you just walked into their house at any time, often unannounced. We miss them living down the street so much. They have since moved to Cincinnati, and we are still so sad about it. Ava and Carter became good friends fast, and I mean good friends. I don't know what it is about their little personalities, but they just click. They are too cute to watch, and even though we have only seen them like two or three times since they moved, A and C pick up right where they left off. They truly are great friends!! The Moss family has been gone for almost two years now and Ava still claims Carter, and only Carter, as her boyfriend!!! They are hoping to move back to Fayetteville one day so it will be neat to see Ava and Carter grow up together.
Here are a few pictures from their trip to Fayetteville this summer...
