roseola and hand foot and mouth disease

Reese had to miss daycare due to roseola and hand, foot, and mouth disease. They are both contagious viral skin infections. It is so sad, and by far the worst rash she has ever had. I feel so bad for my sweet baby. I know things could be worse, but any time a child is sick no matter how bad, it is hard. I hope it gets better soon. Her cousin Hunter has it as well. He missed daycare as well. Pray for them!

17 months old!

Reese is my 17 month old baby girl. Life is so much fun with her! She is into everything, this morning she helped me fill the dog bowls. She gets a cup and goes to the ozarka machine, fills the cup with out spilling it, and brings it to the dog bowl and carefully pours it in. It is so cute. She then gives Haley and Princeton each a treat. She enjoys her puppies so much. She loves all the dogs at her daycare as well. She always goes to my bathroom and gets out the lotion and twists off the top, and places her fingers in it, and spreads it all over herself. (sometimes on her clothes as well) She loves chap stick, and puts it on each morning. She can also put her pants on, and put her socks and shoes on! She is such a big girl!

20 weeks- 5 months

I made it to 5 months!!! I still want to know the sex, but I am waiting.... I think I have gained between 10-15 lbs, depending on the day! So hopefully I can gain 15 more in the next 18 weeks and stay at 30-35 lbs weight gain! Last time when I was pregnant with Reese I gained 35-40 lbs!
Anyway the highlights of this week--- Nausea came back, Reese locked daddy out of the house- luckily the neighbor had a key, and we put Christmas lights outside along with our tree!!!!

Happy Turkey Day 2009! I am at work today until 1000pm. I am missing family, but will see them this weekend! Reese and Chris are hanging out with his brother Matt. I am sure Reese will have a blast with her cousins Kaleb and Cameron. As I sit here at work I am just reminded of how thankful I am. I am thankful I have a job, a family, a home, another baby on the way, and an awesome Lord and Savior!!!
Love ya mean it- Cristin and S4

Reese is 16 months old today! I have been bad with pics, but if you click on my sister's blog you can see some recent pics! She is better at posting pics...Her blog is the Wilson family blog- Hunter, Parker, Alison, and Nathan.
Reese's new words- car, yellow, blue, keys, thank you--- she will not say please???

two days until we could know the sex

In two days I will know if I am having a girl or a boy! ...............but I am not going to find out. I think it would be so fun if I wait and find out in April!!!

17 weeks tomorrow!

Time is flying by with this pregnancy! I am 4 months and still have some nausea, but I can't complain too much because I know some people have it way worse. I do not have much going on right now. So everyone have a great Saturday!!! I am at work, but it hasn't been a bad day!!!

Wednesday, November 4, 2009

16 weeks prego! 4 months

I am still having nausea, so I have to eat every two to three hours. Thanks nausea for all the lovely weight gain!! lol. I posted some Halloween pics on the side of my blog! It has still been hard for me to keep up with facebook and my blog:( Hope all of yall had a great Halloween, Reese, S4, and I had too much candy!!!!

wendy/ hillary

Thanks for the advice! It is good to know I am not the only one with a biting child!

Thursday, October 29, 2009

when will the phase be over?

Reese is in a "phase" where she is biting, hitting, and pinching. It is hard to let her play at her Lil gym class because if I leave her side she may bite someone. She also bites me! I do discipline her, it just doesn't seem to help. On the plus side she is also into hugs, kissing, and patting me. So after she does something bad she kisses me. Hoping the sweet side stays, and the mean side leaves!!

Names, Names, Names

It is so hard to think of a baby name. The baby has this name forever.... I am so confused this time around and I am not able to fall in love with one name. I like about 20 names....
So, If you have any names you are not using send them my way. Our last name is Steger, and I have Reese Jacqueline Steger already!!! Reese is Chris's mom's last name and Jacqueline is my mom's first name. So this was an easy choice. Not so easy this time.
Here are some Favorites from today....
Boy- Cullen, Cole, Levi, Larson, and James----- any suggestions?
Girl- Kendall, Finley, Channing, and Taylor-----what do yall like??
They don't have to be on this list.
last week I liked, Porter, Carson, Kelson, Quinton, Campbell, Lily, Brecklyn

????? SO HARD

12 teeth

Reese has 4 top teeth and 4 bottom teeth, now she has all 4 molars, top and bottom. They are all coming in. It looks like she may have 14 teeth by December!!! I see some white popping up near her bottom 4 front teeth. Just wanted to type this so I could remember to add it to her baby book! I have been really bad at scrap booking and doing her baby book.

the last 3 days

Thursday- Reese went to the ER for grunting. I was not sure if it was croup, constipation, or airway obstruction. She had some xrays, breathing rxs, flu swab, decadron, motrin, ect.
It was not her airway. Diagnosed with early croup, and gas.... Long day
Friday- Reese slammed her fingers in the door. They were swollen and bruised. Sad day.
Saturday- I am praying today goes well! I am at work, and hpoing Chris and Reese stay out of trouble!!!

14 weeks

14 weeks and still having nausea... will post pics soon when I feel better

Tuesday, October 13, 2009


Reese locked herself in the car today. She was with my mom and the cops had to come and get her out! The car was off, so they came quickly... Reese was hot and crying. She did not understand why Nana would not get her out of the car. I am just glad she is OK!!!!
On a bad note- my sidekick is not working, so I don't have a phone. AND I may lose all my contacts...AGHHH
On another bad note, Reese was up all night!!! I guess teething is very painful!
Hope everyone has a good Tuesday night. More posts to come...

10-9-09 reese had her first pedicure and 1st haircut
I will post pics!!!
I am 13 weeks pregnant- so 3 months down!!!

15 months

Reese is 24 lbs, 32 or 33 inches tall (97 percentile), She did not like the shots at all!!
Reese is getting so big, she sleeps the night in her big girl bed (we took the front rail off). In the morning she comes into my room and says "hi" then "momma" It is so cute.
Chris and I went to a wedding last night and stayed in the westchase marriot! It was fun to have date night, Reese spent the night with nana and papa. She had a blast with them!!

Wednesday, October 7, 2009


So I was in the backyard yesterday and I was filling up the Haley's dog pool. Reese was playing in the grass. She started screaming and walking toward me. When I saw her feet I freaked out. She was covered in ANTS!!! I am the worst mom ever lol.... Poor REESEIE

12 weeks

I made it to 3 months! I am still having vomiting!!! No fun, poor Reese watched mommy get sick this am. She was really interested in the while thing. Then off to work for me to take care of vomiting patients which is no fun to a girl who is also sick. Praying the sickness is over at 13 weeks!

Sunday, September 27, 2009


Today Reese woke up at 8:00 am and we got ready and headed to church. She loves the donuts at church! We lasted 10 minutes in the service, then off to the cry room. Where we lasted maybe 27 minutes. Then we signed Reese up for the church daycare... so next week we can actually listen to the service. We all had to get our pictures taken, and fill out some forms! I think this will be our church home, but I would like to try the new one by our house as well. It was hard to leave for work after church because Sundays are lazy, stay at home days! Reese cried when I left which was super sad. I know her and her daddy are having a fun day, they always do when I go to work. I am 11 weeks pregnant and I am still having nausea. I am due April 21, 2010- which is my sister's son Hunter's birthday. It would be cool to have one on the same day! Hunter was born in 2008, so they would be 2 years apart!! I may not find out the sex of this baby, because I have all the boy stuff from Hunter, and Reese has all the girl stuff I would need! Her cousin Parker is borrowing it right now, but we would get it back in April (the clothes that don't fit Parker). I am having a hard time thinking of a name. I like so many names it is hard to narrow the list down!!!

Monday, September 21, 2009



Reese is getting a sibling! ( I am pregnant!!!! )

I have had lots of nausea, that is one reason my blog is not updated as often as I would like!!!

Will keep yall posted!

swine flu

Ok, this is going to be a crazy flu season. I work in an Er and all day we have had positive Influenza A- which could be swine flu. It is out of control and it's ONLY September. WASH hands and stay inside if you are sick!!! If you want to read about the flu epidemic of 1918 you would freak out. I read it today and I feel scared. I hope this season turns out OK. PRAYING for no flu for all my friends and family! love ya mean it

2 new molars for Reese

Reese is getting her 2 bottom molars. Gosh is it hard, she is crying a lot in the night! She also has an ear infection so that does not help! I am not sleeping well..... But it is all worth it! Hope yall are having a good Tuesday!

14 months old today

Reese is 14 months old! She is going through teething, so nights are tough again. We have had to use the bottle again! She is talking all the time, and loves to climb!!! Time flies!!!!

Wednesday, August 26, 2009


Reese was sick in the night last night, she kept throwing up. She has been fine today, so I guess it was something she ate. My poor little baby!!!! Hope everyone is staying healthy!!

Tuesday, August 25, 2009


Reese went to daycare today and I learned she is very sneaky. She can open all the doors, lock doors, and open the baby gate!!! The teacher also said she is a great eater!!! Which I already knew.

Reese ate a hamburger

My mom picked Reese up from daycare today! They went shopping and stopped to eat. Reese ate a whole hamburger!!! I can not believe it, she just loves to eat. On a sad note my niece and nephew had there first day of daycare, and they cried a bunch. Alison said it was so hard to come pick up her babies and see them both so upset! It is hard to be a working mom-- but also hard to be a stay at home mom!!

Grilled cheese sandwhich

A new food Reese has been enjoying lately is... Grilled Cheese. She is eating one as we speak, with my mom while I am at work. I feel like when I am at work all I do is want to be at home with Reese... But when I am at home she wears me out! She will break my blush on the carpet, dump water bowls, hit the big screen, etc. So I should enjoy my time away, so I can be a better mom when I am off.

Praying for today- Katie and Jason (from the blog), The Gracely's, My Uncle, and Jeni

working wednesday

I am at work... Reese went to Lil gym again today for a makeup class! She pulled two little girls bows out. And then she saw a little girl with a pretty gold necklace and she pulled on it. I could not get her hand off of it!!!! Luckily it did not break!

Tuesday, August 18, 2009

LiL gym

Reese walked on the balance beam today at the Lil gym... she loves going, she is the tallest one in her class. Because she is tall enough to open doors...she will go to the door and open it and all the kids will sneak into the storage room. the teacher will say, no Reese... She also loves the end of class when they blow the bubbles. We are going again tomorrow for a makeup class!!!

nana and reese day

I am working today and Chris has football all day... So Reese got to play with her Nana Jacquie today. We met her at Outdoor world, Reese loves the big fish tank. She saw a hat, and I said say "hat" and she was like "haat". It was so cool. Then Reese went with Nana to her classroom to decorate for school. Now they are at my house eating and playing with toys. The cool thing about today was she did not cry when I left her, instead she waved bye bye to mommy! On another fun note, my neighbor started back on the radio today... hot 95.7 and she gave me a shout out at work!!! Fun Saturday!! Love ya Mean It!!!!

Please Pray

The blog called Katie's Keepers really touched my heart today. They just lost their daughter Reese Catherine (yesterday). She was 2 days old. Life is so short and so unpredictable. Only God knows our path. He is always sovereign and right!! It is so hard to trust his ways at times. I just wanted y'all to read there story and lift them up! I do not know them, but I have a Reese and this is just so sad to me. I will not complain about the small things in life, I will realize all my blessings daily, and I will strive to be a better christian, mom, wife, sister, daughter in law, daughter, and grand-daughter.

1st fall

Reese and I were playing on my bed, and she rolled off and landed on her arm. It was so sad, but luckily she is ok. My posts have been short lately b/c I am at work! Patients come and go!!!

lil gym

reese had fun at the lil gym

Monday, August 10, 2009


Whenever I discipline Reese she looks at me and says "hi", it is so hard not to laugh. I am trying to be serious and teach her the right way to act. It is just so funny, so I had to post about it! Also when I lay on the floor to pop my back she will come and sit on my stomach and then hug me! It is so cute.. Having a 13 month old is so much fun, I just love her to pieces!!!

Friday, August 7, 2009


Work day for me. We leave for Dallas tomorrow for my uncle John's wedding in Midlothian, Tx. I will post pics soon!

Thursday, August 6, 2009


Not a very eventful day, Reese went to daycare and I am at work. Reese still cries when I drop her off, it is hard to see her cry after me. BUT I know she stops crying when I leave. I can't wait till 1000 and I can go home! Hope there are no late patients!!
