I definitely have second baby syndrome with you. I feel like you’re a still such a baby, but your’re not! You’re very quickly becoming a little person, a toddler, and it just makes me a giant ball of emotions.

You started crawling last month, but this month you really decided that if you can’t walk yet you’re going to make the most of this crawling deal. You’re everywhere and of course you and Kennedy are always going in different directions which makes things so easy for me.

You’re a climber. I was really hoping I’d have a break from that after Kennedy, but no dice.

You’re a rock star in the food department. You will eat anything I put in front of you. You new favorite loves are blueberries and grapes. I will also forever love the memory of you double fisting a sweet potato in one hand and a pizza crust in the other and taking bites of one then the other until they were gone.

I gave you a sippy cup this month, but much like the bottle you just chew on it.

You can stand by yourself for a decent stretch and you’re starting to test yourself with the look-mom-no-hands trick.

You’re walking really well. Along the furniture, with the walker, and holding our hands. I don’t think it will be long.

Sleep. I still have a love hate relationship with this. Napping is still pretty great with off days here and there. You still wake up twice a night most nights… 11 and 3-4. I really want my sleep back, but I know as soon as you stop I’ll miss the cuddles.

You started doing high-5s.

You love humpty dumpty, this little piggy, peek a boo, singing songs, and being upside down.

You have 2 teeth.

You get really upset if anyone takes something from you.

Your separation anxiety is really bad and you cry if I set you down or walk out of sight. You have also been kicked out of the nursery a few times at church because you’re so upset. {the reason for your lack of smile in most of the pictures… I set you down}

You got sick this month and I had my first taste of the whole pass the sickness around the family deal.

You love water. Splashing at the water table, sitting by the splash pad or the sprinkler, playing in the bath.

You’re awesome, Reese. Full of personality and laughter. I love you so, so much sweet girl!
