Well, back for today at least. I'll try to do a couple of updates later about our trip and everything. But today is all about this little lady.
It's Reagan's FIRST BIRTHDAY! I really and truly cannot believe that my little baby girl is now a crazy, busy, solid food eating, whole milk drinking toddler! We'll get to all that in a minute. I really can't believe that it has been a year since she was born. I'm so glad the nights of getting no sleep are long gone! When I go back and look at all the monthly posts it's crazy.

Day 21 of 30 days of music is a song you listen to when you're happy. I don't necessarily listen to this everytime I feel happy or only when I feel happy, but I think it's a happy song. How can you not smile when listening to it?

Reagan is 11 months old today! Wow. In just 3 weeks we will be having her first birthday party! That’s just crazy.
She is getting really good at mimicking words. She never gets them quite right, but she will try to repeat things we say. A frequent one is thank you. She also says something every time we say amen at the end of a prayer. While Justin was gone I said I love you and she parroted it back at me! I’ve not been able to get her to do it again though. Lots of times she will try to say the last word you say. She knows who mama and dada are and when we tell her no no she will shake her head and say, “nananananananana.” She’s so cute.
Her walking is getting better and better. She’s getting a lot faster and is using walking as her main mode of getting around. She still crawls some, but usually she walks. Here she is showing off how good she’s getting.
She’s growing up so fast, but she’s still tiny. Today her 9 month jeans were falling off while she was walking around the house. She’s eating like crazy though so maybe some growth is coming soon. She now thinks she needs to eat whatever is on your plate. Even if it’s something she can’t chew. She has eaten mashed potatoes, fries, green beans, and bananas. She gets about half a banana every night and loves it. Here’s a video of her eating green beans today.
Reagan had a great time playing with the zinnias today.
She was pulling the petals off one at a time.
I now have all the parts of Reagan’s outfit for the party! I had shown you the tutu and head band, but now I have some leggings and the embroidered t-shirt. The shirt came in today and it is sooo cute! I can't wait to see her in this outfit and take pictures of her in it! She's going to be the cutest little birthday girl in the world!

Oh, and while searching for the video I found this gem.

The cylindrical ones were wrapped around cans in the case of Mt. Dews in the fridge. :) One of the cards he mailed before he left. The others he orchestrated with a friend of ours to be mailed on certain days. There were also a bunch of notes left on windows and mirrors for Reagan and I. He's so cute. I don't know when he did all the ones around the house. He's sneaky sneaky. I underestimated his sneakiness. (I can't remember what that's from, but we say it all the time :)) He's so good to me!

Todays song for 30 days of music is a song that reminds you of an event. A while back Wicked (the musical about who the wicked witch from the Wizard of Oz really was) was on tour and came to Birmingham. I informed Justin that I would be buying us tickets with my birthday money and we would be going to see it. He whined a little, like most men do about musicals, but still went willingly. :) Once we walked in and he saw the huge stage and set and the live orchestra he got a little more excited. He had no idea how amazing these productions were. Anywho, I was pregnant at the time and Reagan danced around in my belly the whole time. During this song in particular she moved around A LOT. Who can blame her, it is the best song in the musical. Marcie Dodd, the girl playing Elphaba (the wicked witch) was amazing. Any of Marcie Dodd singing on youtube are not good quality because they were done by people trying to hide their camera and record illegally at shows. I'm giving you the Glee version. The kids on this show can SING! It's a shorter version.

Reagan and I had a great day even though we miss daddy so much! We went to Bible class and worship this morning then over to the Myers' for some hot dogs and ribs...yum. We watched some hilarious home videos of the girls as wee ones. One in particular featured a 2ish Kristen walking over to Greg, who was laying in the floor, and purposefully stomping directly on his nose. Priceless!

It was a great week. We do classes for 3 years old and up so Reagan didn't go to class. I held her while Justin did the opening and singing and then he took her while I was teaching my class. We kept her pack and play in the nursery and put her down for her nap in there everyday. She did really well considering we were not in her normal place. We have put her down in there before when I was working on my decorations so she was somewhat use to it.
