She couldn't get the skirt so she's going for the collar. This dress has a hood, which makes it fairly easy.

This past week Reesey has really started babbling. She likes to tell stories and sing and is delighted when we babble back at her. She was one of the best singers during the opening song in Relief Society on Sunday.... and during the opening prayer.
Little Bit of talk
"I don't want to go in there- She'll smile at me!"
I started looking around for a headless horseman and a horse costume. Unfortunately, the only headless horseman costumes I could find were online, and ran around $80, not including shipping. I thought at least I would be able to find a horse costume around locally, but it appears that a horse is not a popular costume. I decided I would have to sew a cape for Will. I then began to look for a large stuffed horse that I could turn the head in to a hat or something, but Savers only had little stuffed animal horses.

Short and Sweet- Reese Enjoys Her Mobile:
Reese in one of her picture outfits. I'll post a copy of professional ones if any turn out good enough to share here. Will made the comment that, though Reese had three wardrobe changes during the photo sitting, all of her clothes were hand-me-downs or gifts. Hooray for cousins and baby showers!
This week the woman in the extended Heath family threw Reese a baby shower. I requested that this party occur after her birth so that more people would be able to see her as little as she is than probably would have been able to otherwise. Thanks to Aunt Sally for generously hosting the get-together.
One gift was an infant rocker. This chair is fabulous. It slides on the carpet easily, so now I can drag Reese to whatever part of the apartment I'm at and I don't have to pick her up if she's fallen asleep. If I'm cooking, I can drag her to the kitchen entrance. If I have to do laundry, I can drag her to the laundry room. If I'm putting on my face, I can drag her to the bathroom. So much for a rocker, they should advertise this thing as a sled.
A very helpful neighbor, Cheri Brewer, lent us some mittens to keep Reese from scratching her face. Yesterday Cheri asked me how they were working and I gave her the thumbs up. Then today Reese decided to take advantage of her mitten-less-ness on the way to church and gave herself a nose scratch. Rats.
This video isn't very exciting, but I thought that I would post it anyway to keep a memory of Reese and her cousin, Katie. Actually I think Reese sneezes towards the end, so that's pretty exciting.
To me, this video is slightly mroe exciting, if you can tell that she's holding her head up by herself.
