introducing... reilly catherine

reilly is our first baby and only daughter. she's also known as bug, bootsy and peanut. reilly likes to be called princess, but we feel that's a bit much! she's 6, but her attitude is that of a teenager. wow we're in big trouble once she hits junior high!

our bug was born 4 weeks early and was a whopping 5 lbs. 8 oz. she was so so so tiny... thus the nickname bug. both her daddy and i really wanted to have at least one little girl... so when the ultrasound revealed reilly, we were beyond thrilled. waiting for her arrival was the tough part. i have HORRIBLE pregnancies, so we were very anxious.

a few facts about our reilly....

- she loves to be in charge and is the "boss" of her little brothers
- her best friend since birth is gracie, she's fierce in her love
for gracie
- reilly sucks on her middle two fingers on her left hand when tired
- she also has a taggie obsession and she's very particular about the
look and feel of her taggies
- reilly thinks she has a wonderful singing voice & loves to sing and dance
- reilly hates pizza..... i know, what the he**
- she doesn't call cereal by it's name. it's either "granny cereal", "mommy cereal"or "daddy cereal", named in honor of the person she feels loves that cereal most.
- reilly is entering 1st grade next week

--a brief pause so i can cry a little--

- reilly IS an artist
- favorite colors are pink (of course) and orange
- reilly has a booty, seriously a booooooty (which i love to skoot)

that's all i can think of now, i'm sure in the future there will be many posts which will give you a better understanding of our little bootsy mama.
