St. Louis........Here we come!

We leave for St. Louis on the 22nd! This is our first traveling experience with Reese! Well, farther than the 3 hour trip to the beach. I've heard plenty of horror stories about the airport and small children - hopefully that won't be us! I'm not sure exactly what to expect, but that's been the theme since November the 25th! I'm prepared for her to yell like a wild baneshi during the entire flight and throughout the airport while people stare and make comments! If this does happen, maybe I'll just yell right along with her so people will think it is hereditary. Like mother, like daughter! I'm alright with most everything else because those things can be taken care of ie diaper change etc. But when she starts her high pitch yelling, the one where her face turns bright red and she doesn't make a sound for a good 35 seconds - yeah, that one - that's the one you can't stop! So, I guess in the next few days I'll let you know how this all works out! (You can pray for us and our first traveling experience!)

The end of my first soccer season!

This past weekend wrapped up the 2008 high school soccer season! Reese (and Gregory) have been champs through the past 5 months! The past two weeks have been very hectic for us given I traveled to Bluffton on Monday, Myrtle Beach on Wednesday and then back to Hilton Head on the following Monday. Gregory was such a help picking her up each of those days from Nanny's house and getting her fed and to bed! This really isn't anything new for him in that he usually would keep her at home with him on nights that I had games! (Even though many of the "soccer" moms would have liked for me to bring her!)
So to conclude our soccer season, Reese and I went to the state championship games on Friday and Saturday! She got to help her mom work the canteen and play with Uncle Will and many other coaches'! She did great out at the field - just hanging out in her stroller - talking to whomever would listen! One of the photographers took some pictures of her at the field! (Once I get them from him I will post them!)

Our First Play Date!!

Reese had her first play date with Ella Ballenger on the 15th. Ella is the daughter of a longtime friend Lindsay. Lindsay and I have know each other since the 2nd grade. We got together over at her mother's house in Columbia since Lindsay and Ella live in Charleston. We had a great time together! Ella was almost the same size as Reese even though she is almost 4 months younger! She is so cute and has a head full of hair. At one point Ella started yelling and then Reese decided she should chime in as well! So it was a chorus of baby crying! Reese is looking forward to many more play dates with Ella!! Thanks Ms. Roberson for the WONDERFUL salad!

Here we are at Greg's tennis match. She can sleep just about anywhere and during anything!
I tried to take a picture with her dad in the background but he was two courts away! At least we tried!
