dear nice person who stole my american express account number:

you suck. thanks for racking up $1200 on my card. awfully nice of you! who spends $115 on movie tickets? did you take everyone you know? luckily you were stupid enough to buy an airplane ticket. you gotta put your NAME on those, friend. and they know where and when you're travelling. so, i hope my peeps at AmEx were telling the truth when they said they'd contact the authorities and have them meet you at the airport and apprehend you. too bad i can't be there!

as much as i'd like to know who you are and how you got my account information, it's nice that i know your's listed on the ticket you bought and i can see it on my AmEx account. i'm currently accepting ideas of what i can do with that information. if you see this man on the street have him call me, he's the smart guy who used my credit card:

thanks to the nice folks at AmEx for being vigilant enough to catch this the day it happened. even if it was due to the fact that a former employee of yours had recently stolen our account information and therefore you were placing additional fraud monitoring on our account. kind of random, assuming the two incidents are unrelated, as you are telling us. anyway, kudos. keep up the good work. also, thanks for not making me responsible for the fraudulent charges.

again, you suck.

p.s. what were the 9 $5 charges at craigslist? also, when you use the greyhound bus ticket you bought, i hope you sit by the craziest, stinkiest, grossest person on the bus. and that they give you the swine flu.

p.p.s. $200 on flowers? and ANOTHER plane ticket?? now i know who you're friends with. nice.

thanks for listening, i feel a little better.

One Month Stats

reese had her one-month check-up today. here are the numbers:

8 lbs 8 oz - 25 percentile
21 inches - 50 percentile
37 cm head - 25-50 percentile

we also found out she has a medium sized umbilical hernia (which i already knew/guessed thanks to google. who needs doctors?). the doctor assured us it is purely cosmetic and it will probably remedy itself within 18 months. if not, she'll have a funny belly button. also, if you're bored and search google images for 'umbilical hernia' you'll find some pretty frightening pictures. don't worry, hers doesn't look scary.

lastly, she had her HepB one-month booster. sad, sad baby. she screamed and held her breath, but calmed down pretty quickly.
here's a couple pre-doctor appt pics (p.s. brady got her dressed today! good job, eh?)

4 Weeks of Smiles

As time goes by Reese continues to smile more and more. I’m surprised that she has smiled as much as she has in her first month. We have been blessed with a very happy and content baby. Reese is very aware of what is going on around her and will usually respond with eye contact when you talk to her. These pictures were taken last Saturday. She was smiling a lot and big when I was trying to make monkey noises. Sometimes, like in these pictures, Reese looks like she might be a red head!

Reese @ 3 Weeks

These pictures of Reese were taken almost two weeks ago, but they are too cute not to post. Props to Megan for taking such amazing photos!

last year at this time....

a year ago we were finishing up our 2-week trip to Costa Rica. good times (mostly...). i still crave food from the little columbian soda we stumbled across in jaco. brady craves the coke in bottles. we stayed at quite the wide variety of places: the most disgusting hostel, relaxing rainforest hotels, posh marriott resorts, and some other fun places.
lots of changes have happened over the last year! here are some pics from our trip...CR was a good time and we're looking forward to more fun vacations!

2 weeks!

can't believe she is 2 weeks old today! time has flown by, i have a hard time believeing it's been that long. she's a pretty happy little girl. here's some info about her:

-loves her hands! especially when she's trying to eat.
-makes the funniest faces. smiles, pouts, looks amazed, confused, mad - all in a couple of seconds.
-has been sleeping well at night. i've had to wake her up after about 4 1/2 hours to eat. we'll see how long that lasts, though.
-loves to look out our windows at all the city lights. she also loves to look at the stark white ceiling and grey couch....???
-good cuddler. has figured out how to work her way up your chest and nuzzle up in your neck. this has inspired dad to shave daily.

we love our little munchkin!!
