My Teeth

Reagan now has five teeth... two on the bottom and three on top. There is another one on the way that we can see on top, and two more on the bottom. Here's a good shot of her showing off her new pearly whites!

Forward Facing Car Seat

Now that Reagan is a year old, we can switch her car seat around so that it is forward facing! She has always liked riding in the car, but she really enjoyed running our errands today with her new view of the world!

My Books

Reagan loves to read. Her favorite toys are her books. Here's a picture of her getting "up close and personal" with some of her favorites! She is into EVERYTHING these days!

I Love You Auntie Anna

Reagan had so much fun playing with Auntie Anna while she was here. We took Anna back to Seattle to the airport last night, and Reagan waved bye-bye to Anna in the security line until she was completely out of sight. It was really cute to see... everyone in the airport was of course oohing and ahhing over Reagan!

My Truck

According to Grandma and Grandpa, even little girls need a big truck to play with! This is one of Reagan's favorite toys that she got for her birthday... Thank you Grandma and Grandpa. We were so happy to see you for Reagan's first birthday. Having you here for the party made it even more special!

Spoiled Rotten

Only a spoiled rotten little girl would get to have an Orange Julius Smoothie for breakfast along with more new balloons for her birthday! Thanks Daddy!

Singing Elmo Balloon

Reagan loves all balloons. But Singing Elmo Balloon that she got for her birthday is by far her favorite! She played with it so much that she popped all of the helium out of it almost immediately. But that doesn't stop her from taking it with her wherever she goes. First thing birthday morning, she was playing with her balloons!


It is so hard to believe that a year has already gone by. But at 6:12 am, one year ago today, Princess Reagan was born! Here a few pictures of the birthday girl enjoying the tulips that Daddy planted in our front yard. The day we brought her home from the hospital last year was the first day that all of the tulips opened up. So those same bulbs made the perfect setting for her birthday pictures!

Swinging Away

She LOVES the swing at the park!

Playing at the Park

Reagan took Auntie Anna to play at the park that is just a few minutes away from our house. It was hard to decide, but I think Reagan had the most fun! She loves the park... the swings, the slides, all of it. She loves anything that involves being outside in the sunshine, but she especially loves the park.

The Fairy Princess

Reagan got a fairy princess dress for her birthday, and she now loves to play dress up!

Crazy Auntie Anna

Auntie Anna flew in for Reagan's birthday, and we had TONS of fun with her. She taught Reagan that sometimes the box that a present comes in can be just as much as the present itself! We wish she could come see us more often because Reagan just loves her to death!

Playing with Mackenna

Mackenna and her parents (Kevin & Michelle) came to play with us (and watch the hockey game!) after the birthday party. It was so much fun watching the two girls play together. Auntie Anna was having a good time with them too!

Birthday Surprises

Reagan was spoiled by everyone for her fist birthday party. She was a real cutie opening all of her gifts!

Cake and Ice Cream

Reagan enjoyed her first cake and ice cream!

No Tickle Elmo

All of the kids enjoyed taking a turn at tickling Elmo!

Reagan Meets Elmo

Reagan was a little hesitant at first, but she was eventually very excited to meed Elmo. I was using the video camera when he first entered the room, and then the still camera later!

Elmo at the Birthday Party

Elmo came to see Reagan at her birthday party, and she was so excited. He was definitely the hit of the party. Nothing puts a smile on Reagan's face like Elmo, so this made her first birthday party even more special!

The Parachute Princess

Reagan enjoyed being the princess of the parachute at her birthday party!

Reagan was a greedy little girl when it came to the balloons on her birthday. She wanted to have ALL of them in her cute little hands!


She's almost one! Her first birthday will fall on Tuesday, so we had her first birthday party on Saturday, April 21. It was SO MUCH FUN! All of her friends were there, and we had a blast playing together. The girls at the rec center helped us to enjoy the party by pulling out all the toys for the kids to play with, including the super cool parachute! And since they are Reagan's favorite, we made sure to have the room filled with balloons.

Bath Time

Lately, we can't seem to get Reagan out of the bath tub. She is like a fish when it comes to water. She is becoming such a big girl, and she really likes to play with all of her bath toys. She's almost a year old now, but it seems like just yesterday that we were giving her the first bath at home in the little infant tub. She's changed so much since then!

Go Canucks Go

It's playoff season for hockey, and the Vancouver Canucks are hoping to win the Stanley Cup this year. We all got together to watch the game at Uncle Kyle & Auntie Denise's house, and we of course dressed for the occasion. Reagan showed off for everyone and even taught her cousin Kaleigh how to do "the Pops". When we went to visit in SC for Christmas, Pops taught Reagan how to flex her muscles and shake her fists while making this really loud growling noise. Reagan has been doing it ever since, but she seems to be doing it constantly since Pops and Momsey were here for Easter! I'll have to try to get her doing it on video to publish on this blog so that you can get the full effect with sound as well!!

Enjoying Pops & Momsey

We really enjoyed having Pops and Momsey here, and we hated to see them go. We made sure to get some last minute loving in before they left to go back home.

She's Walking

Photo Sharing - Upload Video - Video Sharing - Share Photos

Reagan started walking during the middle of March when she was just over 10 months old, but it took her awhile to REALLY get the hang of it. Now, she's practically running through the house at times. She still concentrates super hard at what she is doing, and she takes after her Pops in that regard. Notice her tongue sticking out during this video... anyone who has ever seen Pops when he is hard at work knows that this is a trademark habit of his as well!

Easter Morning

The Easter bunny came to see Reagan! She got her very first Easter basket, complete with eggs, grass, books, bubbles, and a new DVD of the movie Charlotte's Web. Of all her new goodies, she had the most fun making a mess with the pink grass!

Her Easter Dress

Momsey and I got Reagan all dressed up in her pretty dress to go see the Easter Bunny at the mall. Reagan has no fear. Many kids her age become scared when they see the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, or other figures in costume. Not Reagan. She was laughing, clapping her hands, and hugging the Easter Bunny that day. Everyone thought that she was adorable. She only cried when it was time to leave!

Playing with the Balloon

Reagan thought that this balloon was the coolest thing. She played with Pops and her Daddy for so long that all of our sides hurt from laughing so hard. She really is a cutie pie when she starts laughing!

Reagan and Pops

Pops and Momsey came to see us for Easter, and Reagan loved playing with Pops while she was eating. She was his little helper when he was surfing on the computer!
