Five Years Old

I can not believe that five years have already flown by. It truly seems like it was just the other day that our sweet princess Reagan was born. She changed our lives forever, and she continues to amaze us day after day.

She still is and always will be my baby, but there are many days that she seems so much older than just five years old. She is an AMAZING big sister, and because of this I know that one day she will be an amazing mother. I often tease Myers that he is lucky to have two mothers... me and Reagan! She has such a natural instinct with him.

She astonishes me with how smart she is. Oh my goodness, the things that come out of her mouth! Ryan and I have discussed the fact that we think that she is already smarter at five years old than we were at ten years old. She even answered a final Jeopardy question about Vincent Van Gogh all on her own the other day!

She is a natural athlete with non-stop energy. She has already proven herself to be a superstar gymnast, and I have no doubt that she is going to excel in any sport that she chooses. She can swim like fish, she's almost mastered ice skating, she can run for miles, she's a poised dancer, and her daddy is most proud of her slap shot!

She's sweet and loving, well-mannered (most of the time!) and full of life.  She's sensitive and caring, curious and determined.  She's our beautiful five year old little girl.

When she was only a few days old, I wrote a song for her that I still sing to her to this day. It sums her up perfectly...

Reagan Marie, my precious baby,
You fill my heart with love.

Reagan Marie, my precious baby,
You are a gift from above.

You are my world, my sun, moon and stars.
You are an angel, that's what you are.

All of my life, you'll be my little girl.
The sweetest baby in this whole wide world. 

Reagan Marie, my precious baby,
You fill my heart with love.

Reagan Maire, my precious baby,
You are a gift from above.

5 seems like such a milestone - I felt it when Hannah turned five. Although six is looming! :)
