Out on the Town

Reese has gone a lot of places for the first time lately.
Just coming back from a nice walk - I think she likes the sound of the stroller bumping along the snowy roads because she goes right to sleep when we start strolling. Oh... and I love how her puffy outerwear drowns her- she's so itty bitty!!
About to meet up with Grandma Ellis and Auntie Amber to shop the outlets

Reese's first Sundance Film Festival experience. She was so toasty that she slept through the whole thing. It was hillarious how much attention Eric got from all the passing girls due to the cute little bundle strapped on his chest. It was CRAZY!! Single guys - strap a doll to your chest and walk around and you'll get more attention from beautiful girls than you've ever dreamed possible.

Visiting Papa at work - This is one proud papa, he had to show her off to all his work buddies, I love you dad!

18 Days

Reese is now 18 days old and as of yesterday's doctor's appointment, weighs in at 8 lbs (meaning she's put on a whole pound over the last 1 1/2 weeks). She is a totally chill little gal, and we love her lots and lots. Here are some pics, I can't believe how much she changes each day. She is still eating and sleeping well, and has more and more wakeful moments each day, which is kind of fun, other than I haven't figured out how to entertain a 2 1/2 week old :) Chelsea loves HER cousing Reese, she makes sure everyone knows that she is HER cousin
Reese likes tummy time, too bad we can't let her sleep on her tummy, because pretty sure she'd sleep through the night.

She has some awesome cheeks!

Foxy Lady

Sorry if anyone reading this blog is getting tired of the baby updates. Reese has become the center of everything we do and is the fun new item in our lives. I will try to find other things to blog about occasionally too.
Precious Feet
Precious Hands

I LOVE how little her body is next to her dad's hand - Completely PRECIOUS!
Our Foxy Little Lady in her fox outfit - thank you Papa for the fun fox stuff!! She wore this for approximately 5 minutes, after which she covered it in spit up.

It is amazing the love you can have for someone you just met! Reese has stolen mine and Eric's hearts! She is a complete doll and we just LOVE her to death! It is such a blessing that God allows us to increase our capacity for love with the arrival of a new child. She is perfect in every way and amazes us with her sweetness! I watch her all day and am enthralled by her every move and sound.
My love for Eric has also increased with this new adventure in our life. It is precious for me to watch him interact with Reese, and it is such a neat feeling to be our own little family, sealed together FOREVER! So wonderful!
Daddy got Reese all ready for her first doctor's appointment. Reese is lucky to have a dad that loves her SO much!

More pics of Reese

She doesn't cry much - but she definately let us know she wasn't a fan of having a bath.

She's got her daddy wrapped around her finger already.
