6 Months

Happy 6 month birthday to Rease! What a joy she has been to us over the last 6 months.

For an overall update

- she is about 17 pounds, 7 ounces (last week at the doc)
- has the same two teeth she has had for a couple of months now
- still lots of hair on top and not much on the sides
- loves her food, newest taste is avacado
- wants very badly to crawl
- sits up by herself very well
- pretty much adorable!

We have been pretty busy around here the last week or so. We had our house appraised on Wednesday this week (not moving, don't get too excited) so we have been working like dogs to get the house is decent shape so we weren't completely embarrassed when the guy came. We still had dirty dishes in the sink, but oh well. I am really planning to make one of my goals for 2010 to have a clean house. I am tired of letting it get crazy and then working all weekend to get the laundry done and the house clean.

Tonight were Rease's 6 month pictures. I think they are going to turn out fabulous. As always, Nellie did a great job and was taking tons of pictures. We even got to meet baby Norah who woke up from her nap right as we were leaving. I think the pictures should be up online in about a week or so, so we will let you know when they are up. They are going to be great.

Other than that not much else is going on around here.
Here are the most recent pictures. Enjoy!

Rease showing off how well she can sit up by herself.
She also loves to suck on her lip like that. Cute.

I got my hair cut last Tuesday and was trying to get a picture
for Anne. But Chris was at basketball
so Rease and I were trying it on our own, as
you can see; she wouldn't keep her
hand off my nose long enough to get a pic....
sorry anne :)

Mom sent this hat last week. As soon as we put it
on Rease she started smiling. It really cheered her up
after finding out she had an ear and eye

Look at how bad her eyes look....
I think she disliked the ointment we had to put in
them more than the infection itself.

These are all pictures I took tonight after we got home from Nellie's.
Notice that her hair is actually laying down.
That took a lot.of.effort

Happy 6 months, Rease. We love you!
