|Reagan's 1st Birthday|
November 8, 2011
It's hard to believe a year has gone by since we had Reagan and first brought her home from the hospital. It's amazing how much this little girl has changed from the completely dependent infant girl she was to our independent little girl who runs around the house with enthusiasm and energy enviable to all.
We have been so blessed to have such a over-joyous and healthy baby girl. She has always been enthused to try everything out for herself and stares at her toys with such intent and curiosity, trying to figure out how every toy she plays with works... it has to come from her Daddy's engineering mind. She started feeding herself finger foods over the summer, and started crawling over the summer as well so she could keep up with what the "big" kids were doing (aka Nella and Peter). It didn't take too long for Reagan to figure out that putting one foot in front of the other means a whole new world of visual entertainment and being able to reach higher for things she wants! She was walking by her first birthday and hasn't looked back yet!
We are so lucky to have such wonderful family and friends that were just as excited to celebrate Reagan's first birthday as we were! She had a week long celebration of birthday parties, birthday breakfasts and dinners, and a house full of decorations fit for a Pretty Princess' 1st Birthday :) She may be surprised to learn in the future that birthdays don't typically last weeks at a time! Besides the first birthday theme, Baby Minnie Mouse was the center of our decorations since Reagan is obsessed with Mickey Mouse as many of you already know. Thank you to everyone for your love, excitement and generosity as we celebrated her big birthday!!!!
