The past two weeks have been very busy. First I had to take Reagan for her four month check-up and shots. She now weighs in at 11 pounds. The doctor is a little concerned with her slow growth rate so we will continue to have weight check-ins. We will be going every two weeks to check her progress. She did great with her shots. Of course she screamed but the second I picked her up she stopped. Shots are the worst because they never see it coming!
After her doctor’s visit we were given the okay to start eating rice cereal. Reagan took to the rice just as sister Grace…she hates it! So we decided to go straight to the baby food. This process is very slow going. I am not sure if it is similar to introducing Grace or not? I am just ready for Reagan to get the hang of it!
One night last week Rob and Maria came over for dinner. I love when they come over. We have so much fun. Soon after they came over Grace was ready for bed. This is rare when Rob is over Grace usually stays up until they leave but not this night. Before they left we decided to check in on her and this is what we found.
What else can I say that these pictures do not?
Grace was recently moved up to toddler room A so we were given all of her art work from her old room, infant room B. I decided to display her art work in the kitchen. My dad put up a clear plastic board to keep our dog, Fergie, off of the blinds. So this was a great spot to put up the art work. Grace loves her art work!
Reagan has really become very active lately. She is now rolling from her stomach to back and from her back to stomach. She is also starting to spend time in the exersaucer. Grace loves to play with her in the exersaucer and Reagan loves any attention she gets from her big sister.
And the biggest thing this week has been our visitor, Taylor. Yes, she still comes for her week long visit every summer. I hope this never ends. I guess when she gets married in 20 years or longer and husband will be welcomed as well. Grace has loved it the most I think. Everyone knows that Grace was moved to a “Big Girl” bed and now Tay-Tay is sleeping in the bed with her. I think it’s going to be bad when Tay-Tay leaves. Taylor and I spent yesterday shopping. Surprise we spent more money on the two girls then anyone else! I love the sister tradition! Maybe one day we can go on sister trip with Emory, our sister-in-law and mom? New York comes to mind! What do ya’ll think? Of course mom should pay!

Needless to say we did not make it to church, we went to the doctor instead! Everything looked great except for her throat. So she had a strep test done, they are as fun as shots!!! It came back negative. The doctor said that Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease has been going around. She said 6 other children she saw today had it. So she sent us home with some medicine that numbs the throat. There is nothing else that can be done, it has to run it course, which is anywhere from a week to 10 days. Grace has done great. She is starting to get some energy back but mainly she just wants mama to hold her!
Reagan will be going to daycare a few days this week. I just want to do everything we can to make sure she does not get this from Grace.

This is where Brett has spent most of the last three years...studying. We also pay bills and surf the net from this desk. If you look closely all of the pictures are from the Civil War. Brett loves history and the Civil War is the most interesting to him. He has a great view of the back patio from the desk. He can look out and see Grace swimming or swinging while he is working.
My mom and dad saw that we were going to be in need of some bookshelves about one semester into law school. They were right! This bookcase is now full of all of Brett's books. He was able to save one shelf for Grace. She loves to play in the office while her daddy studies or works. (If you look closely you can see the head of our dog - Fergie.)
Brett is currently taking a course the helps review for the BAR EXAM. The eight weeks class has 10 books. Poor Brett, this will soon also be a thing of the past.
Finally, our running joke. We both went to The University of Memphis, somehow I was the only one to get a framed diploma. I would always remind Brett that he too would have one to hang up in our office one day. In about 3 more weeks his Law School diploma will be here and I am sure on the wall.
