As always, I've filled my time with one thing or another and have felt too busy to blog. I've been trying to spend a lot less time on the computer, which has been great in most areas, but hasn't been great for my blog :)

We have been BUSY! Eric with work, work, more work, and his church calling. Me with school, errands, and mommy fun. I'd take my busy over Eric's busy anytime and appreciate him SOOOO much!
Last Saturday me and Eric met up with Whitney (Bonnett) Taylor and her husband Chris and went dirtbiking at 5 mile pass. It was SUCH a blast!!!! The weather was perfect and as always, dirtbiking gave me the excitement and adventure I crave and get withdrawals from. Can I just say that I'm glad that Eric is such a good dirtbiker, it makes me push myself to ride a little harder and climb a little higher each time. I dressed Reese up in her cute new pink boots so she'd be stylin' while hanging out with Grandma and Papa.
Below is what Reese's face looks like when she is being funny and sucks in her lips and makes vacuum like noises with her mouth (I don't know how else to explain the sound).Reese is now 9 months old. While walking in Provo two weeks ago we stumbled upon a new little playground. Reese LOVED the swing, so I thought, what better place to take her 9 month pics??
She is SO inquisitive. She notices EVERYTHING and is just so smart! She is crazy mobile, crawls so fast, stands up and walks around holding onto things. We bought her one of those cars with a handle on the back so she can push it around while walking. She liked it for a while, but now she isn't so fond of it. I think the fact that she has to run full speed while pushing it and the only way she can stop is to fall on her knees or run into something has made her a little nervous of it. She will still push it around but cries while running. Kind of funny. I'm sure she'll grow to like it :)
She waves, dances, and is such a smiler! So many people ask if she ever gets upset. She does, but is all in all an even tempered little gal (as long as she isn't hungry or tired - funny how those two things effect the moods of babies and mothers alike.)
9 month stats:
- 17 lbs 6 oz (50th percentile)
- 27 1/2 inches (75th percentile)
- Head in the 75th :)

Reese has always had what I've considered "great" hair. She is finally letting me put headbands on her again, but that doesn't stop the hair from being crazy. I LOVE her hair though! I think it is darling!
