This blog shares the happenings of Chris, Lacey and Reese O'Donnell. We didn't used to have that much to say about ourselves which is why posts were few and far between, but now we have a little person that will give us a lot to talk about. The blog will also feature Lacey's Random Finds - event planning, paper love, pretty crafty things, etc.


REESE - 9 Months

Reese is 9 months old! Let the birthday party planning commence (what? I'm an event planner, remember?) Here are some things about the girl this month:

* She crawls!! She is funny though because she is still pretty content to crawl, play a while, crawl some more, chill there. Nothing fast with this one.

* She pulls up on furniture, but just to her knees. Once again, not in a hurry (haha)

* She claps and waves. I was trying to get her wave on video and she started clapping for the first time. I was semi-hysterical.

* She eats everything but particularly loves french fries (don't worry, she eats other things including veggies and fruit too!)

* At her 9 month check up she is 19 lbs 7 oz, 28 inches and still has a big head (all those brains!)

* She laughs a lot - at other kids, when tickled (of course!), and just when something strikes her fancy. Its a terrific laugh

Go Phillies

Reese hit up another baseball game with her Uncle Brady - Phillies at Nats. Most the time there are a ton of phillies fans, but this was unbelievable. It was all Philly, except Brady who wore his Nats gear proud. Ok, and a few other Nats fans. Is the Utley shirt to die for or what? Matching Utley's - COME ON!!

Facebook Brings People Together

Our last day in Wildwood was a rainy day. Reese and I were taking a nap and Chris was messing around on Facebook (which he rarely does) and saw a post by some good friends of ours (who rarely post) that live in Boston that they were on their way to Wildwood. Chris called and within an hour we were at their place to visit.

Heather is Chris' oldest friend. Seriously, they have known each other since they were babies (just 4 months apart). She and her husband Mark used to live in the DC area and we saw them often, but they moved to Boston and we only get to see them about once a year. They had a baby in March and we were trying to figure out a time to get up there to meet him. But....thanks to Facebook and Wildwood we were treated to an impromptu visit. Andrew and Reese are just 4 months apart too! It was wonderful to see them (and Heather's dad who took these great pics)
