Pink dress

Reese looked so cute today in this pink dress, so I thought I would take some pictures. I feel like I haven't been taking as many of her lately. She's getting chubbier cheeks, and smiling and talking more often, although she's been smiling for a while now. I love that smile, it just melts my heart!

Our house gets a facelift

BEFORE This picture was taken a few weeks ago just after we took out some big bushes that were in front of the windows.
AFTER This was taken today, still in progress, but almost done with the front.

Barrett and Wade (Barrett's brother) hard at work. They are doing all of this themselves! I'm very impressed.
AFTER The back is done! And we have a new back door on the left.

Blessing Day

We blessed Reese on May 25th. She looked so sweet in her blessing dress. What a special day it was, to have her blessed by her dad, and have family with us. She is such a happy baby, she loves to smile and talk to us, and always so alert.


We wanted to bless Reese while Barrett's parents were in town. It was fun to have both sides of the family there to share the day with us.

Grandpa and Nana

Reese was able to meet her Grandpa and Nana Batchelder (Barrett's parents) when they came to visit for a week at the end of May. It was so much fun for them to finally meet.
We enjoyed spending time with them and doing fun things like bowling, going to movies, and taking walks. Reese went to her first movie and (thankfully) slept during the whole thing.
Nana, Aunt Brittny and Uncle Wade
We had fun going on a walk at the parkway, the weather was so nice that day.
