More photos of Reagan

Here are some more photos of Regan. She is now two months old. I can't believe how fast it goes. Dave has only one more semester of school. I have been adjusting to being a stay at home mom. It has been a difficult transition for me but I have come to enjoy it more and more. I also got a job where I can work from home. Reagan is celebrating her first christmas with us. We are so excited. We are starting to see her smile more and more everyday and we are loving every minute of it. She has been such a blessing and a special addition to our family. It's hard to imagine our life without little Reagan.

This is Reagan in her Blessing dress. A girl in our ward took these of her not long after her blessing day.

It's been a while

I'm not really good at this whole blogging thing as most of you know. But I plan on getting better I promise. Let me bring everyone up to speed. Reagan Marie Nichols was born October 13th, 2009 at 9:23am at 8 pounds.

new and exciting things

Well it's official. I am a sucky blogger. I am not good at this at all. Anyway here is a little update on what has happened within the last few months. Since the new year Dave and I decided it was time to add on to our family. We will be expecting our new addition in october. I will never forget that night I told Dave the exciting news. I have never seen anyone so happy in my life. He jumped up and down with a huge smile on his face. He could not stop kissing me....I loved that :-). When we found out I was only 5 weeks along so I waited a couple of weeks to go see the doctor. My first doctor's visit was cool. The doctor did an ultrasound and the baby was only the size of a kidney bean, so cute.
I feel lucky not to have had the experience of morning sickness though. I was however extremely tired durning my first trimester and working full time. My days off consisted of my laying on the couch all day long. Since then my second trimester has been better. I have been less tired but I still make many frequent trips to the bathroom. I had another doctor's appointment on friday and they did another ultrasound. The doctor told me that the baby was in a breeched position and my bladder was empty making it difficult to see the gender. So we will find out for sure on May 29th. The new pics of the baby were so amazing. I actually have a baby inside of me and it looked more like a baby then a kidney bean. There was even a picture of the baby waving at us.
Also some other exciting news is that Dave has finished his first year of grad school. Yay!!!! only one more year to go. I can't waite to see what the next year brings. Dave is going to be an amazing father. I love him so much. I thank the Lord everyday for sending me someone so good. And for slapping me in the face to wake up and see that I had something so wonderful right in front of me. Most days I feel like I don't deserve him.....ok I lied I totally do. But I was one of the lucky ones that's for sure.

Our 1st Christmas 2008

This Christmas was special cuz it was our first one together as a married couple! YEA! We had a pretty sweet fake tree and some killer presents. We spoiled ourselves with a Nintendo Wii with Mario Kart and Guitar Hero! We have already mastered the game on "EASY." Our next quest is to try rockin out on "MEDIUM!" Jen is truly the guitar hero, and I'm the drum master! Our first Christmas together was awesome. We spent Christmas Eve together at our place but had dinner with Jen's family since her brother just returned home from his mission in Mongolia. I love eating Jen's mother's food! She has been filling-in since my mom isn't around to cook =) We almost got snowed in at her parents house but luckily made it home alright. I was pretty excited to sleep-in on my only day off from work but not to my surprise, Jen was up bright and early like a little school girl waiting to open presents! Jen started the magical holiday by giving me my stocking full of gifts and goodies...but then I realized I totally dropped the ball...and forgot to fill her stocking with anything! I officially failed the good husband test! I somehow got "wrapped up" (No pun intended) buying her gifts and forgot to buy stocking stuffers. Oh well, there's always next year. Well, Jen forgave me and we went over to her family's house again to open presents her family had bought for us and we spent the day there playing games and eating junkfood. It was an awesome holiday and a wonderful break from school. I had a whole month off! We couldn't have asked for a better Christmas together. We both decided that we probably will never be able to spoil ourselves again like we did this year. Afterall, we may possibly have a family of our own by next Christmas!
