Funny Reesey Stories

Our lives are so much more entertaining with Reesey around. She is quite the spicy little thing! Here are a few funny stories from our fire cracker. Speaking of fire cracker, Ami sent me an email with that very subject line filled with pictures of Reesey from our Labor get together. They will be thrown in her as well.

As you look at these pictures, keep in mind this is a water table.
Not a wading pool.

I was talking to my mom the other day telling her about our experience at Mass this past Sunday. I was mentioning how all of a sudden she began screaming because she decided she wanted to take off her shoes. The minute I said screaming she screamed in real life. "AAAAAAA!" and smiled. My mom, who was on speaker phone says, "She screamed?" Again, "AAAAAA!" and a smile. My mom, "Is that Reese? Is she screaming?" Again, AAAAA!" with a smile. This went on for a good 4 minutes. It was quite hilarious. 

Oh, and notice her necklace and lack of clothes.


Dinner is always an event in our house. Not always a good event either. During dinner Reese stands up on her high chair and chucks her sippy cup across the table onto the floor. Brian reprimands her right away. She sticks her bottom lip out, covers her eyes and pretends to cry. About 3 seconds later she peeks her eyes through her hands to look at Brian. When she sees he's still upset she covers her eyes again. AT this point Jaxon and I are trying not to laugh. So of course, when she peeks again, she starts giggling too. Brian is none to pleased with this. He begins to reprimand her again for the sippy cup, but this time he points at her. She leans over the table takes his finger and bites it!! All the while smiling like an innocent little girl.


Reese loves her pacifier and her lovie (aka as bobo and nunu) She will go to great lengths to have bobo  in her mouth. We try to limit it to bedtime and naptime. I, however, am a sucker for her and will let her have her pacifier, I mean she's so stinkin' cute.  I'm trying to be tougher though. So one day at around naptime she comes out with nunu & bobo. Perfect. Time for nap, she's halfway there. I put her in the crib tell her night night and start to walk away. Meanwhile, she's crying and kicking, clearly not wanting to take a nap. As she's in her crib, reaching for me, I tell her, "You don't have to take a nap, but you have to leave bobo in your crib." She stops crying,  falls into her crib and closes her eyes. I didn't hear a peep from her for 2 hours.


Awhile back I was sitting on the couch with Reese when all of a sudden she bit my leg! I immediately swatted her mouth. You know the whole, if you bite them they will stop biting theory? Don't judge, I just don't want her to be a biter. She, of course, sticks out her bottom lip and the crocodile tears start flowing. After about 2 minutes and no sympathy from me, she stops. She then caresses my leg, gives it a little kiss and CHOMP! bites me again!! Are you kidding me??? Clearly the biting theory holds no water with her.

All I can say is thank God He blessed us with Reese. Our lives are all the better for it. Even if we both have more gray hair and are completely exhausted every night.
