When you're pregnant...

When you are pregnant, you can't sew fast enough to beat the expanding belly. Therefore, the dress that I started making at the beginning of my pregnancy goes to my much smaller sister! It looks way better on her anyway! I told her she didn't have to actually wear it, I was just trying to get back into the swing of sewing and made the dress for practice. But she wore it this past Sunday! I'm planning on sewing the baby's bedding and maybe a few other things, so I wanted to get my skill level up a bit. I used to sew all the time, but I got out of practice and forgot most of what I knew.

I know what you are thinking, I look MASSIVE next to Jada. I feel like my head is too small for my body. Maybe there will just be head shots from now on...

All is well at the Reese house! We have been pretty busy and have a busy week ahead. Daniel and I are so blessed and have the opportunity to fly to El Paso on Wednesday to pick up our new (well, new to us) Toyota Sequoia! Daniel's mom got a new car and we are buying from them and driving it home on Thursday! I can't wait to have a car that I can stretch my legs in a little, or a car that Addalie's car seat will fit in! I'll post a picture of it on Wednesday or Thursday!

God has been so good to us when it comes to vehicles. We will be making payments on this one, but it is the first time we have had a car payment, and we are getting such a good deal! Thanks Bob and Dena for being so generous! Daniel also sold his scooter (yay!), and has a buyer for his little truck. I get nervous about anything resembling a motorcycle, so I was ready to get rid of the scooter. Addalie loves music and found headphones the other day. Daniel hooked her up to his phone and she loved being in her own little world bopping along to her music!

She learned to climb up on the coffee table and was quite proud of herself. That's me feeling crummy in the background!
We went to the pool with several friends from church last week and had lunch there. I looked over and Addalie and Emry were sitting there sharing food! Here is Emry feeding Addalie.

She is so cuddly and totally into babies right now!

Fashion Show

Addalie got some new clothes and I really wanted to see them on her, but trying them all on at once. Not a good idea. I did get to see these two on her, though that was a struggle! She is a girly girl, but is still too young to understand that it is fun to try on new clothes!

Complaining about the tags still attached.
This was really funny. I was trying to make things fun by pretending to do a catwalk, which she cracked up at. This is her attempt to do it as well! She had a little bounce in her step!

Today was Addalie's first experience with Play-Doh. Of course all she wanted to do was try to eat it, but she loved it when I made it into a ball and we threw it around. She kept holding it up and shouting "geen!" We are working on our colors! It was so fun playing with her today. I don't feel like I've done a lot of that lately because we have been so busy, so it was great to have a nice, normal day here at home!

Daddy's Shirt

Last week Daniel gave blood at our blood drive and got a free t-shirt. Well for some reason, Addalie fell in love with it and wanted to wear it all the time! There is a significant difference in the sizes that Daniel and Addalie wear, so it was a challange for her, but she was determined. She even had to have it to go to bed! It was so cute!

21 Weeks Pregnant

Well I'm officially over halfway through this pregnancy! It's starting to get a lot better as far as how I feel. I rarely need to take an anti-nausea pill, though I do still have to eat fairly often or I feel sick. And I definitely look pregnant now! Here are a few pics:
We have been staying busy with lots of church stuff and CARES stuff. It takes a lot of time outside of doing events to just connect with people. We try to have people over for dinner a lot and we just get out and take walks to talk to people. Daniel has now gone full-time working for Primerica so that is keeping him busy. For those who don't know, he is still doing insurance, but he is also doing financial planning and investments. He is always looking for referrals and the opportunity to speak to people about what he does, so if you're interested...

Other than that, we are doing well and enjoying each day! Here are a few more cute pictures of Addalie! She is literally learning something new everyday and constantly making us laugh.
On Sunday in her new dress she got from Gam!
She loves laying in our bed and watching Praise Babies. She can now ask to watch it!
Just being sweet! She is so affectionate!
When we go for walks in the evening, she loves sitting on the curb and waving at everybody!
