3 months old

I am having so much fun with my sweet baby girl! She is just precious in every way. She lights up a room when you walk in and is all smiles;) She loves watching her big brother play...she will smile and occassionally squeal at him! LOVE that;)

We finally got to see the doctor for her 2 month visit even though she was already 3 months!!! She was a perfect little angel in the doctor's office until she had to get shots:( The doctor told me she looked great so that is always nice to hear! She is definitely getting satisfied from her mommy;) Here are some of her stats from her visit......will fill in the blanks after I find her stat sheet.

Wt: 13.9 lbs 75th percentile

Ht: 23 inches 50th percentile

Head: 75th percentile

On another note, I have started back to work and it is going pretty good. I miss my babies like CRAZY, but it does give me some "ME" and "ADULT" time. I guess it helps me feel like I am someone else besides a wife and mommy....."a nurse" I love helping people and getting to talk on the phone so I have the best of both worlds.....a phone triage nurse position. Before I had kids, I worked full time for a Cardiologist,but after Reed was born they created this position for me. I work Mon, Tues, and Wed from 8-5 and get great benefits for both of my kids and myself! I may one day decide to stay at home, but for is going pretty good. My day FLIES by since I am so busy, so it helps pass the time away from my kiddos!

Here is my little chunkie monkey!!:) Love those cheeks!

Where puppy go????

Where puppy go....mommy? I hear this at least 5 times a day!! Reed loves standing at our fence waiting on our neighbor's bassett hound to come lick his fingers;) He LOVES "puppies" so much!!! He will run in and out of our house with such excitement after he pets the puppy at the fence! It really makes me sad because we lost our English Bulldog several months ago and Reed was just now starting to say his name right before he passed away. Simon was our dog's name as most of you know....and he was a good ole dog! Simon was special in many ways, but the most special memory about him is the day Cody proposed to me.....he tied my ring around a bandana on Simon's neck. Cody got him for me while we were dating. He was my baby for 8 years!!!I will have to admit he LOVED me!!! He was a big family dog and very protective of us. We miss him so much and think about him ALOT! We buried him behind our friend's house on Zion Rd.....for the longest I could not drive by his house without tearing up. I still think about him just about everytime I drive by there, but I know he is in a better place now;) I have wanted to talk about him on a post but have not been able to without sobbing at my computer. I am tearing up as I type this post but it will be okay. We love you Simon and miss you SO much big boy!!!

Reed's New Jeep

Reed got a late birthday present from his Nana and Pops.....a new Jeep! Due to all the snow we have had, it came later which was fine with Reed;) Big Daddy came up this weekend and helped put it together on Saturday along with a table and chair set from him and Lolly! We had such a great time with Big Daddy! He brought his famous smoked turkey and we ate on it all weekend. He also cooked pork chops for us on Saturday night....they were yummy too!!! It was just nice to enjoy a great weekend and not have to worry about cooking! Big Daddy took Reed to the park, the pond to feed the fish, and to see the cows behind our neighborhood which is Reed's favorite! Thanks Big Daddy for a FUN weekend!!! We always enjoy your company;) We missed you Lolly!

Valentine's Day...and mommy's first day back to work:(

Since Monday was going to be a sad, crazy morning......we decided to celebrate Valentine's Day for the kids Sunday night. Reed and Anna Grace got lots of goodies...Elmo books, stuffed pink and white monkeys, stickers, light up ball, Baby Einsteen musical toy, Toy Story juice cups, and fruit snacks. Here are my sweet babies getting there stuff!

My sweet hubby surprised me after work with a dozen red roses and a nice Salmon/Steak dinner;) It made my day!!! I love you Cody Reed so much and thank God everyday for you. Hope everyone had a great Valentine's day with your sweeties;)

My Dirty Boy

Reed was sooooo ready for the weather to warm up so he could play outside. After the snow all melted he found a big mud puddle! He had so much fun jumping in it and just being a BOY! I did not realize he was getting as muddy as he got until he came around the corner. Here is a picture of my dirty boy;) The pictures have a glare on them and really do not show how dirty he really was!

My clean bundle of Joy;)

Happy 2nd Birthday Reed!!!

WOW.....I cannot believe 2 yrs ago I was waiting on my sweet baby boy to be born!!! February 9th, 2009 was such a special day in our life!!! I have wanted to be a mommy for so long and I absolutely LOVE it! Reed, you have filled our life with so much joy! You have a such a sweet, sensitive side to you like your daddy and never meet a stranger (like me). You are such a sweet boy, super social, energetic, ALL boy, very routine (like mommy), smiles all the time, wonderful big brother, snacker (like mommy), loves to be on the go, loves outside, LOVES Elmo, Barney, and Mickey Mouse (we never go a day without talking about one of these guys, loves music, dancing with mommy, working anything with your hands, trying to figure out how things work, cuddler, still LOVES "sassy" (paci), uses the potty when he wants...but still wears diapers, still sleeps in crib, LOVES baths, and riding on rangers and golf carts, loves puppies and pretty much any animal, loves his family very much and greets each one by running fast and smiling from ear to ear and screaming with excitement! We love you soooooooo much and thank God everyday for you. Here are some pictures from his birthday party. I decided to have his party at the Little Gym and man was it ever the perfect idea! They did EVERYTHING!! I just watched all the kiddos run wild and took some pictures! My parents, Cody's parents,my sister, brother in law, and Isabella ALL traveled through the ice and snow to make this party! I was nervous about all of this winter weather, but I was bound and determined to have his birthday party! We ended up having 40 degree weather on Saturday and had a great turn out!!! I think everyone had serious cabin fever and were ready to get out of the house! Reed had a blast and it was a great place to celebrate his 2nd birthday!!! I took a ton of pics and had a hard time narrowing them down. Enjoy!
