So today is my last day of work... off for two weeks. Still scrambling to get a few things done that I have successfully procrastinate until today but I'm confident that by 4:30 I will be done. I have all of my Christmas shopping done, just waiting on a few more gifts to arrive via the mail and I should be good to go.
We are celebrating Scott's family Christmas this weekend and the festivities start tonight with Lee & Jill coming to stay with us for the night. Tomorrow we will head over to Ma and Pa Klassen's house until Sunday. Then next week I have to get all my gifts wrapped, amongst lunch with friends and all other sorts of fun stuff. Hopefully we will also get to see the Lepp's as Reese can now say Mia, and can't wait to see her! We also hope to see P & J and will work on those names as well!!!
Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and that we can all get together over the holidays for a visit!!

It was also nice to come home though.... Reese is saying a new word a day and has added to her repetoire...
Cuckoo ( Thanks KA)

The bad thing about being gone for a week from work is that the work just waits and stacks up for you. I have 13 more days that I'm working this year and plenty of work and meetings to fill up twice that many days. So I am stressed out. Also, for the first time in many years I am not done Christmas shopping. Needless to say I have too many people to shop for that need nothing. I wandered aroud the mall aimlessly and came up with very little. Except for an outfit for Reese that I'm not overly fond of and chenille tights that cost as much as the dress! I normally not such a sucker but this woman caught me at a vulnerable moment and was a very persuasive ( pushy) salesperson.
That's all for me.

Reesey is walking... actually running everywhere these days. Her vocabulary is expanding everyday. Some of the things she says:
Nana (Grandma C.) and also Banana
Poppa ( Grandpa C.)
Momeem ( Uncle Morgan)
Baby Maa (Baby Mac)
Brains ( in a creepy goulish voice)
Hi ( to everyone who will listen)
Please ( only once and it was in order to get a slice of cheese before supper)
She seems to be trying to repeat a lot of what we say. Which is cool... and also dangerous. She is definitely a chatty cathy like her father. Sheesh!
We seriously love her at this age... which I'm sure I've said before and probably will say again, but she is just so much fun. She sleeps 12 hours a night, eats our food, plays on her own and is actually quite a little entertainer for us. And she's pretty darn cute too... if I do say so myself!

"OK honey, time to take your picture with the pumpkins"
"But I don't want to"
"Uh, yeah you do"
"I hate you guys"
"I'm outta here"

All decked out in her dress from Austria from Uncle Lee. She had to work pretty hard to carry that little pumpkin around the house... hence the tongue out.

June 10/ 85
Dear Mr. Murta,
I, Scott Klassen, have a problem which concerns me very much. Seat belts are the large problem. They are not as useful as you and Roland Penner think. As an example this man is riding down the road, when he turns a corner, a large black Ferrari pulls out of a driveway and cannot turn fast enough to get out of his way. In attempt to swerve he turns the wrong way and down a hill he rolled in his car. When he got to the bottom of the hill he was ready to get out but his seatbelt stuck and the car blew up. There are many other ways in which this happens.
It's a Little Awkward
A steer that drinks beer
A hog who ate a frog
A seal who liked to steal
A wombat with a tomcat
A skunk who eats junk
A fly who told a lie.

After the screaming child, who now glares at me, and throws everything on the floor, was in bed, I did manage to watch a few chick flicks. Now I'm no Sex and the City mega fan or anything but while searching for a movie I came across it and thought why not. I loved it! It pretty much sums up everything a chick flick should be. I really loved that it wasn't all cry-y and emotional.... there was some crude humor and fashion shows, and I wasn't bored the whole 2 and a half hours it took to watch it. I would definitely recommend it. Oh... and in case any guy has to sit through it.... I will give you the Scott review - Yes there is boobs in it. The end.
Yesterday we had family photos taken. At 5:30 p.m. I tried very hard to make sure that Reese slept so she would smile a bit.... but of course she had different ideas. So I'm not sure how they are going to turn out but if you get a christmas card from us this year and there is a picture of a screaming child on it, well, I tried.

I got my gym membership at the beginning of September and was wanting to go 3-4 times/ week. With work and well, life, I've actually been going more like 2 times a week. I've just been walking at a good clip and with a pretty steep incline, but last night I decided to kick it up a notch. I was pretty impressed that I ran for 15 minutes straight.
I won't even mention the 2 times my arm caught the iPod cord and sent it flying off the back of the treadmill. Nor will I mention the one time that while I was trying to save said flying iPod, I accidently hit the emergency stop, thus making a loud beeping noise, alerting the pre-pubescent boys beefing up at the weights of my presence.
Oh I am such a graceful creature.

Kari-Ann - please note the quilt underneath the cake..... I couldn't find an appropriate table cloth.... so this worked perfectly.
Clapping for the cake.... what can I say - I'm an excellent cake baker. ( Thank you Duncan Hines)

Anywho, I am going to post pics from the big first birthday party and all sorts of other goodies... just not today!
Yesterday our little monkey took 4 steps. These steps required some coaxing and bribing with toys but still - steps. Our little girl is walking... and I got to see it before I got back to work! Today she is coasting back and forth between furniture without extra coaxing. I'm thinking it won't be long and she will be running.

Lately she will shake her head back and forth when you say no. Or if she doesn't want whatever you're giving her. It's kind of nice that she is communicating if only a little bit. She also will wave bye-bye, play patty cakes and tell us how big she is by putting her hands over her head.
Here she is playing with Grandpa's hat.
2 weeks ago when it was so nice out - we took Reesey out and let her play on a blanket. She loved watching the dogs and when Scott started up the tractor - she starting laughing and got super excited.
THen we had another big adventure... she met the cows and most importantly the calves.
And to finish off... some delicious baby feet.

I think these pics tell it all.
We have since moved onto prunes and pears. Which she loves! And yes we feed our kid in front of the tv, with no pants on, in her bumbo chair!
And we bought some new wheels since I last talked to the internet.
Neither of us ever wanted a van but with a kid I have totally changed my opinion. I love my new van!

Work is so much more than I bargained for. What was supposed to be 2 days a week is now 4-5 and don't even get me started on the rest of it..... I will be so happy when this is over.

So... been awhile. This mothering thing is hard. Most days I feel like I have no time for myself let alone to blog. We were doing well with sleeping but for the last 3 weeks Reese has been waking up ( sort of) at least 4 times a night. She's not eating just needs to be comforted. This is really taking its toll on us.
In spite of it all, we had wonderful holidays. Reese was a spoiled little monkey. I haven't downloaded pics yet but I promise it's coming. For New Year's we went to Minot with my family. What was supposed to be a quiet evening turned into a late evening for Mommy. Man did I pay for that the next day. Some fairly recent pics from right before Christmas. We had 4 month shots yesterday and Reese was a brave little soldier. She weighed 15 lbs, 13 oz and was 26 1/4 long. She's slowed down in the weight department but is still in the 95th percentile for both weight and height.
~Wishing everyone a very happy and healthy 2008~
