.:Reece–4 Years Old:.

We have a four year old!

It’s hard to believe that it’s been four years already, but at the same time, it’s hard to believe that it’s only been four years! Little Reece has just been such a joy in our lives, I can’t imagine life without her!


Reece is quite the personality. She loves to get a good laugh, but she’s almost guaranteed to get one of those whether she is trying to or not. She’s been known to pray for her pretty dresses, glass slippers, and hair bows. Reece is about as girly and princess as they come, but she also has a wild side that comes out and she loves to pretend she is a dinosaur or a monster.


Reece loves her sisters! She and Remi are the best of friends, and Reece loves to give Harper loves, make Harper smile, and even pick her up! (Yikes!) She’s a little caretaker to both of them, and is usually pretty good about sharing with them. It is fun to listen to her mothering and bossing those two around; she’s definitely listening to me!


Reece is also an excellent helper to me! She loves to help me with cleaning or cooking and baking, and will also help with whatever small thing I need her to do for me. She loves to know what I’m doing all the time, and wants to be involved in everything! Most of the time it is endearing, but I have to admit there are times when I wish she wasn’t so darn curious!


Reece is also a sassy face! She can sure pull attitude when she wants to, and it frightens me a little bit for the upcoming years. Hopefully we can tame that down a little bit! We’ve been working on trying to just talk normal and use words, and she does a pretty good job remembering to do so when she is feeling frustrated or upset. This has been a good lesson for me as well to show her by my example!


Reece is a little performer. She loves singing and dancing, and we’re always amazed at how many words she knows in songs. She loves to sing along to Moves Like Jagger, as well as any of my other zumba workout songs. She requests what she wants to listen to in the car, and has a great time doing zumba with me at my classes. She’s not in ballet right now, but I’m sure we’ll be doing that again soon!


Reece is just one happy girl, and has so much enthusiasm for life; it’s tough not to be happy when you are around her. She’s full of compliments and nice things to say, and just makes you feel like you are the most important person in the world when you walk into the room. We just love her so much, and are so proud of the little lady she is becoming! We love our smart, beautiful girl!
