Reese is growing physically, mentally, and emotionally so quickly each day.  I thought this would be the best way to continually document her milestones for you all to follow tale by tale as they happen. (Although some of these skills were learned before 15 months, I listed all her current skills up to that point under the 15 months subtitle.)
