A Whole YEAR older!

Guess who's back. Back again.
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.
Here she is with her giraffe at the hospital, at six months and at one year. I can't believe how much she's grown!

She is getting so big and turning into this little person. She doesn't seem like a baby anymore. She's seems like a little tiny grown up. I know she's not nearly grown. She's just so much more grown up than when she came into our lives. It's so funny to sit and watch her try to figure stuff out. She is so busy. I can't keep up with her! I never know where she is because she's constantly moving. She is now officially off baby food. She either eats what we're eating (cut into little pieces) or eats a gerber toddler meal. She's also drinking whole milk now. While we were on our trip she stopped nursing so when we got home we gave the whole milk a try. She wasn't too sure about it the first two times but the third time she drank the whole cup and now drinks one at every meal.

She's starting to talk more and more. She can say hi and bye and waves at everyone she sees. When Justin comes home she screams "dada" and squeals because she gets so excited. Sometimes she'll say bible and she says duck. Sometimes it's directed at her rubber ducky in the tub and sometimes it's just random. She also randomly says yuck. :) She likes to watch me play super mario bros. When I die she'll go, "OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooo." lol She's starting to say uh-oh as well.

She's so sweet. She will run (well, kind of run) up to us and hug our legs or pat us on the arm when we're holding her. She hugs her animals and baby doll.

I know I'm forgetting stuff but it's getting late so my mind is not working too quickly. I wanted to take her down to the river today to take pictures but it stormed off and on all day. But we were able to sneak out in the back yard between storms. Here's what you really want anyway. :)
A few from her party. (if you want more look on facebook)
