Little Brother

It's a boy! Today we found out that Reese is going to have a little brother. So excited!
Here's the basic shot


We already have a thumb-sucker. The technician said the profile even reminded her of Reese.

Valentines Weekend


Friday night: Church Valentines dance. Will said he felt like he was in high school again- he hadn't been to a date dance since then. They had a nursery so we didn't have to worry about Reese. If I look chubby in the picture it's because I am.



But, despite the belly, I did try to look my best. That included putting on my long hair. I think I still confuse people with my length-changing do's. (The secret: I have two wigs. That's right, fake scalps of hair. Don't tell anyone.)


The next day we finished getting ready to visit the fam in Utah Valley. But before we left, Reese tried on my sparkly red heeled shoes. She's got pink and red on- fitting for Valentines.

And She got a Valentine in the mail from Grandma and Grandpa Faber. She loved the card and loved the candy even more. Thanks!


On Valentines day we spent most of the time with cousins coming and going from LDS missions. And Will got me Zours. Best Valentines candy ever. So romantic.



On President's day we went out for some bowling. Reese originally thought the way to play was to throw the ball and then chase it down the alley. She learned very quickly that the alleys are waxed and so it's not very practical to try running down them (ker-splat!). After that she learned that bowling goes like this: 1. Push the ball down the alley 2. wait for it to hit pins 3. clap 4. try to pull another ball off the rack.

Attachment

Sometimes Reese becomes too attached to something.

This is her favorite blanket. Yes, she had to bring it into the bath with her.

She knows we don't like it when she plays on the computers. But she likes it so much that she doesn't like it when we play with our computers, either. Once she put her toy computer up on the desk next to my computer and crawled into my lap. I thought it was cute that she wanted to be like mommy, until she put my hands on her computer and began pounding away at my real, more expensive one.
Reese's winter books came with these felt inserts for extra warmth. It also makes it easy to get her feet into the boots if you put these on first because the fabric helps her feet slide right in. One Sunday before church, she brought her boots over for me to put on her. I figured, why not?
I quickly realized that she didn't want the boots at all, just the felt inserts. She wouldn't let us take them off or put the boots on so that's what she wore to church. I was surprised at how many adults complimented her footwear. They weren't even being sarcastic about it. Since it's the non-complete item that got the attention, maybe next time we'll just dress her in some underclothes. Like in this photo, without the dress.

Toilet Seat

Reese has recently discovered that she can lift up the toilet seat. I told Will so that we would both be aware and watch out for it. She's pretty good about closing it by herself when we catch her in the act.

However, today she pretended to throw up into the toilet bowl. I'm still not sure what to make of that.
