Reagan's First Christmas!

Well, Christmas certainly came and went. Boy, does it fly by each year! This year was a little hectic with too much last minute shopping/driving around...something I can't stand. So, we were all pooped by the end of the week and glad it's time to move on. Bring on 2009!

Reagan is getting to be more and more personable, so I know this is really going to be a fun year of growing and changing and really getting into her personality. It was almost this time last year when I found out that I was expecting, and what a whirlwind it has been!

We had a pretty busy Christmas - Christmas Eve was spent with Granbonnie, Pops, Uncle Todd, Mana and Grandaddy. (I guess we have to start calling him Great Grandaddy, too. Yikes!) We ate dinner at Red Lobster and headed to M and G's house for dessert, stockings and presents. Back at Mom and Dad's we read the Christmas Story from Luke 2, lit our candles and scratched our lotto tickets. I think Mom won $5. Ha!

Christmas morning we woke up, ate the usual John Wayne Casserole and opened presents. Around 11:00 we headed down 95 to Mark and Jerri's house. We were there most of the day, but decided to head home since Reagan woke up with a gross little cold. At home that night, our little family opened our presents to one another. Hey, Reagan didn't know it was Christmas night.

Friday, some good friends, the Perkins, were in town and came over for dinner. Saturday we drove with Mom and Dad to Giles for the Myers family Christmas. We came back that evening...Reagan and Winnie were troopers in the car and it was great for ALL of the family to finally meet her.

Here it's New Year's Eve already and we have NO plans. We did that on purpose. Will I even make it to midnight?

I'll try and post tomorrow to kick off the new year.

November and early December

Well, Miss Reagan celebrated her first Thanksgiving this year at her Granbonnie and Pops' house. She reached two big mile stones in a baby's life while on her visit there: her first sink bath and her first laugh.

Today she is three months old - My, how the time has flown by! She celebrated by sleeping through the night again. This time she lasted from 9:00 p.m. to 7:15 a.m. Is this something that we can count on? Let's hope so.

Since she doesn't have a 3 month doctor visit, I'm going to guess at how much she weighs....I'd say 13 1/2 lbs. Maybe I'll get Devin to stand with her on the scale later on tonight.

Reagan also attended her first Miss Va local pageant this weekend. Miss Greater Richmond will go down in the baby book as her first pageant experience. She didn't last all night unfortunately. Talents and clapping are a little scary when you're 3 months old. It was so sad.
