One of my New Years resolutions is to take Reese outside for at least 30 minutes a day. It is easy to just stay in side all day when it is so frigidly cold and only go outside to get in the car or go from the car to the grocery store, etc. So we will be taking either a walk or doing some sort of outdoor activity everyday. Both Reese and I are so much happier if we get some time outdoors.
The other day we just walked around in our yard. She loved running on the snow packed ground, but found it was quite slippery. Shortly after these pictures we had to go inside and put her mittens on because she kept falling and her hands were starting to freeze.
Reese had her 1 year check up yesterday. She is somewhere between 17 lbs 4 oz and 17 lbs 7 oz. (5th percentile)The nurse weighed her on multiple scales just to make sure she was really that light. She is. This girl is non-stop active and eats like a horse (like full pbj's [with two slices of bread] for lunch plus a bottle of veggies, and a whole piece of cinnamon toast, a bottle of fruit, and some of my cereal for breakfast) but is still burning more calories than she is consuming so we have to lace all her meals with lots of fat and calories now. We now have to add butter, cream cheese, coconut milk, etc to her meals and drinks. This morning she had rice cereal made with whole milk and maple syrup for added calories plus some whole milk mixed with apple juice to drink. Yum yum ??
Reese is 28 1/2 inches tall (50th percentile) and her head is 55th percentile.
She is SO full of energy! We LOVE her to death! I'm still in awe at how much love I can have for her. She makes my life so happy!
