Reese @ 18 Months

Well, we've got a little peanut on our hands. I knew she was small, but I didn't know she was 3rd percentile small!

Reese's 18 month stats are:
weight: 20 lbs 6 oz (3%)
Height: 32.5" (75%)
Head: 18.5" (70%)

We have to take her in for a weight check next month, and then if by 2 years she isn't back on the growth curve, we will have her tested for allergies, thyroid problems, and a few other things that I can't quite remember.

She definitely does NOT lack in energy though. She was born ready to keep up with her crazy big brother. These two do not sit still for 5 seconds around here!

A few things about Reese right now:

*She loves shoes.

*She loves singing and having people sing songs to her. Her favorites are Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, The Wheels on the Bus, and If You're Happy and You Know It.

*We call her "monkey", and she IS a monkey. The girl climbs and crawls on everything. She actually has her brother beat in the bumps and bruises department.

*She loves to be chased and loves to hide.

*Her sassy attitude is still going strong. She has mastered the art of glaring.

*Even with her sassiness, the girl knows how to melt mommy's heart. She gives hugs and kisses at the perfect times.

*She talks a lot, new words everyday and even full sentences. But... I'm not sure anyone but us can understand her yet. Her current favorite word is "mine".

*She is a most definitely a Daddy's girl. She really likes men better than women overall, but Daddy is her favorite person in the whole world.

*She loves books. She gets to choose a book from Maddux's bookshelf every night for bedtime.

*She is a pretty good eater. There are a few things she doesn't like, but for the most part, she will eat anything and make a good mess of it!
