Walking?

Ok now I know I put way to many videos up but I can't help myself. For a week Reagan has been pushing things across the floor while on her knees. I can tell she is getting pretty anxious to walk. I told Dave that we needed to get her something that she can push around to help her learn to walk. And thanks to my wonderful aunt Rachelle, who has lent us so many wonderful toys for Reagan already, Let her use this little walker. And when she gets older the seat comes together to make a bike so she can ride on it.And thanks to her top teeth coming in she now does everything with her tongue hanging out.Thanks Rachelle she absolutely loves it!

My Blessings

I just wanted to take a little time and acknowledge the many blessings that God has given me and my family. I am so grateful to have the most wonderful husband on the planet. Now I know all of you think that you have the best husband but sorry to burst your bubbles I'm pretty sure my husband is the best :-)
Dave works so hard to support our little family and even though I don't tell him nearly enough how much I appreciate everything he does for us it's true he is the hardest worker I know.
I'm grateful for how he is with our daughter. I knew that he would make a great daddy some day but I'm amazed every day just how true this statement is. Even though things have been rough at times he is always reminding me of our blessings and that things will always work out the way they are supposed to work out. Many many times I feel like I don't deserve such a wonderful man, and I probably don't but I'm grateful he's mine and that the Lord smaked me upside the head to make me realize that I could not live without him.
I'm greatefu for our little Reagan who with every passing day is such a happy playful girl. She is learning new things every day and loves to show mommy and daddy all that she has learned. Her top teeth are now starting to come in and I'm grateful that the whole teething process has not been as bad as I have heard lots of other moms describe it to be. I'm greateful that she has started sleeping through the night. And for many of you that have children you will know just how great a blessing that is. Reagan makes me feel so greateful to be her mommy. I'm so glad that I have the opportunity to be a mother in these latter days.
I know sometimes it is hard to see the things that are good in life. When there are so many things that I should be greateful for I lose my focus sometimes and start to feel sorry for myself that I don't have the things that I "want" but do have the things I "need" and am truly greateful for that.
I'm thankful to my Heavenly Father for giving me so many blessings. I will do better to recognize those things.

Pool time

The first time I took Reagan to the pool she hated it and cried the whole time. And got sick the day after. So you can imagine my hesitance taking her to the pool again. But practice makes perfect.
She wasn't sure if she liked it at first.

But she gradually warmed up.

Trying to show daddy that she is having a good time.

These pictures don't really do her justice. She was smiling people. but whenever I turn on that dang camera she goes camera shy. It is so hard to get a smile out of her when the camera is on. She just stares at it with her mouth open.

She really liked to sit on the side. I was close by of course but for some reason she loved sitting on the side of the pool.

Dave loved being with her in the water. I know he was having more fun than her. But hopefully the more we do this the more fun she will start to have. We love our little water baby.

Happy Father's Day

Yes I know that my post is a day late. But oh well. Happy first Father's day to my wonderful husband. You have been the most amazing husband to me and father to our little girl. I am so lucky to have you in my life. You do so many good things for me that a lot of the times I feel like I don't deserve it or you. Thank you for all that you do. I love you more and more everyday.

I pampered dave today. He woke up to a nice breakfast of French Toast with bacon, eggs and orange juice. I made whipped cream and cut up some strawberries and put them on the french toast. I'm just sorry I couldn't do more for him today. He deserves so much more. He works so hard.

Fun in the Sun

Today was such a beautiful day. Dave and I decided to take Reagan to the park and have a picnic. It was so much fun. Dave finally had some free time so we took full advantage of it. We pushed her on the swing, went down the slide, and rode around on daddy's shoulders.

Pig Face

Dave has been doing this thing with Reagan lately that he calls pig face. He sits with her for a while doing this face along with the noise that you will see in this video. It's so funny because she copies everything he does. I finally caught a little of it on camera. It took me a while to get it because whenever I turn on the camera she stops doing anything and just stares at it. She is definatly not a performer....at least right now.

Just a few pics

Ok so I know I've been bad at keeping up on my blog but I promise to do better from now on. So when Reagan got sick she had an infection in the back of her throat. She had these little sores. She would stick her tongue out all day because it felt better on her sores. And for a week after she got over her sickness she was still doing it. She is the funniest thing.


I took a picture of her in her cute swimsuit before we went to the pool and she hated it. But at least I got a picture of her before hand when she was happy.

I just love my little girl. Now that she is getting older I have herd a lot more people tell me that she looks a lot like me. I hope so. I always wanted a little girl that looked a little like me.
