4 Months

...and  yet another month has come and gone.  Where the time goes....I haven't the slightest clue!  Reese reached the 4 month mark this past Saturday and my was it a busy month.  First there were Matt and Shell's wedding festivities, then my 1st Mother's Day (which, by the way was a great one and I have a beautiful blue topaz ring from my husband and daughter to remember it by), and I've gone back to work....sort of.  This post is all about Reese, so I don't want to bore you with too many of the details, but Graco (teutonia and Aprica, too) has contracted me to work on all of the details for the 2010 ABC Kids Expo in October in Las Vegas.  So part of my day is also dedicated to this, which makes things CRAZY BUSY!

So, back to Reese.  She is a growin' little girl.  We went to the doc yesterday and here are her stats:

Weight: 15 lbs 4 oz (85th percentile)
Height:  25 1/2" (90th percentile)

Becoming quite the "long chunk".  My mom calls her "chunky monkey".  She is really starting to have fun with her toys and of course everything goes straight to her mouth.  She continues to be quite the little chatter box, too!  The girl just doesn't quit...the only time she really sits still is when she's sleeping.  And speaking of sleeping, she doesn't want to miss a thing, keeping her up during the day more than the average baby.  She does sleep great at night though!
getting used to her entertainer...her favorite is for me to sing along with Old MacDonald
these are her two bff's
I recently bought her the Jump N Jive doorway jumper (the musical mat is awesome!), and I can't wait until she understands how to use it like Will  I'm a little biased about this product, too, because I worked on the commercialization plans for it while I was at Graco.

So, basically, we are just chuggin' along and loving our little lady more and more everyday.

Here she is lately....
