2013

2013 was a big year for us.

Reese turned two in November.

This is what a lot of two has looked like so far…..110_phixr

She may not have loved her birthday party, but some people had fun.

My sister got married in November and Reese was a flower girl. We got her to walk down the aisle by bribing her with lollipops. I learned an important parental lesson; candy gets shit done.

We found out that baby number 2 would be coming to us in February 2014 and that Reesie would be getting a new cousin (her third!) in early March.

Glasses were a big hit this year.

Reese understood Christmas a little more this year. By this I mean that she knows nothing about the day being a celebration of the birth of Christ but everything about Santa, candy canes and presents.

It was a year full of exciting firsts; first time eating an ice cream cone, first time swimming in a lake, first time riding an unenclosed train in frigid cold temperatures when Mom forgot your hat and mittens, etc. There were also some  “oh my god she’s no longer my baby” lasts. Your second, and last year as an only child, the last time you used a baba (pacifier), the last time sleeping in your crib (more on this soon.) The list goes on, and we know it is only just beginning.

Cheers to 2014. We can’t wait to see what it will look like.

  1. Those sunglasses are hilarious! Yup, I’m on the same page with you about the candy. We don’t let our kids play with our phones or iPads regularly, so in a pinch (stuffy restaurant), these “forbidden items” are worth like 1.5 hours of complete silence.
