For some reason, Reese pot pie is one of Reese's nicknames. Kind of funny. But I thought it was a fitting title for this post because I have all sorts of pictures of Reese that aren't really from a certain occasion, just here and there I've been taking a lot of pictures and I'm going to post lots of them all at once, just a warning that this will be really long. (I have a camera again, thank goodness, but I get a little carried away sometimes)
She likes to stand up in her crib or on the couch, but she doesn't pull herself up yet, we stand her up.
She jabbers constantly, mostly says dadadada, but all sorts of other made up words too. She waves, sometimes on command. She points at things a lot. She'll dance when she hears music -she bobs her head to the side and twists back and forth and puts her arms up. For some reason she likes when we sing her that Beyonce song that says "if you like it then you should've put a ring on it" For what reason we started singing her that dumb song, I don't know, but she likes dancing to it. She hates her hands being touched, always has. She will grab onto my hand when I'm feeding her, but it has to be her choice. She loves books and gets all excited and starts to breathe faster when we read to her. She likes to play peek a boo. When I tell her to give me kisses she will lean her face into mine and just breathe on me, it's so cute. (I could go on, but this is already really long, sorry, probably boring for everone else!) I just love that little girl! What a joy she has been in our lives, I feel so blessed to be her mom.

Reese loves to clap these days! She likes to clap our hands too. I tried to get her to clap a couple times but she would only clap my hand, then one day she just started clapping! A few days later I was watching Oprah and she was doing her show in a big auditorium because it was the day before the inauguration. Reese saw all of the people clapping on TV and she clapped when they did-it was cute. It's so fun to watch her learn to do new things. Now if only she would learn to crawl...(No she still isn't crawling and she's almost 10 months old!) I took this video last week.

I've been making these blocks for the past few months now. My sister-in-law and I made them for a party and then other people kept buying them from me, and I made some for Christmas presents. I've made some that said Noel, Love, Home, etc. as well. I just wanted to post this picture because I thought the paper on this one was so cute! Now if I could only get some made for myself!

We had the annual Hudgens family Christmas party in Heber this year. It was an eat soup/snowmobile/sled/eat some more/bingo party. These pictures were from my cousin's camera (which I wish was mine because it's nice :)
This is my cousin's daughter Ava. She is more than a year old and Reese is about as tall as she is! And Reese definitely weighs more.
Reese with Aunt Krista.
Ava's sister Ashlyn.
This is my mom. Isn't she beautiful?
After everyone got there and we all ate soup, it was off to the sled hill and snowmobile trail. We tied sleds to the back of the snowmobiles and pulled them down the trail.

This was when my camera broke, so these pictures are from my friend Laura. Reese wasn't scared of Santa at all, mostly just curious. She kept staring up at him and his beard.
This is my fam at my parent's house in Heber. We were all there for Christmas Eve so we got a picture. My camera was still broken for Christmas so I had to steal all of these pictures from my mom and sister. It was so fun to be able to spend the night at my parent's house on Christmas eve, and celebrate Christmas with them. We were able to spend three days there after Christmas too. It went by way too fast!
Reese and Kellie in their Christmas pajamas! Christmas morning.Reese had fun playing with the Wii controller covers and the bat, tennis racquet, etc.
My sister Kellie posted these pictures on her blog and I thought they were funny. They were seriously taken about 1 second apart. I guess she's moody already? She's wearing her cute cowboy boots!
