A lot to catch up on!

Wow! This has been a super busy past couple of days for us! The weather here is GORGEOUS and Reagan and I have been playing outside and walking quite a bit and just enjoying life.

Let's see! What new news? Pritsha (one of our furbabies) has suddenly taken a liking to Reagan. I don't know if it's the cooler weather or if it's the fact that she's finally used to her, but she leans into pets now and nuzzles on her, instead of hissing, swatting and generally being rude. I'm quite pleased by this development!

Reagan's vocabulary just keeps exploding. Every day she says 3-4 new words. I'm in constant awe--swimming pool and owl are just two new ones that I'm amazed at! Her comprehension is through the roof! We went around the house yesterday and I asked her to point out certain items...I can't believe how much she knows..and when I tell her to do something..she UNDERSTANDS!! (For the most part!).

She is even making jokes! JOKES! We were in the car the other day and she had something in her hand..I forget what it was..maybe a food item or a toy..and she kept putting it on her head and saying "Hat!!" and cracking up with laughter! Such a silly girl!

She is continuing to baby and doctor every animal and baby doll in sight. Grandma (Josh's mom) just got her a baby doll carriage and had a full carriage set made for it..adorable..and Reagan is having sooo much fun with it!

Her new favorite food is cheese, which she asks me for at least 15-20 times a day (not an exaggeration!!) and her 'thank yous' (takeooo) and pleases (peas) are getting more and more clear and common!

Here's a cute story from the other day:

so we were out and about today and stopped by barnes and noble. i took her and changed her the first time and saw that the men's room also had a changing table, so the next time she needed changing, i told josh to go change her.

while they were in there some man came in and passed gas REALLY loudly. josh said reagan kind of scrunched up her face like she was trying to remember what that sound meant, for a minute and then she yelled "phew! phew!" and continued to say it louder and louder and louder (because she liked the reverberation in the bathroom) until they left. 'PHEW!! PHEW!!'

i nearly choked to death i was laughing so hard when he came out and told me!!!

out of the mouth of babes....

Otherwise, we are just living life with all the normal things that come along with it...cooking, cleaning, playing and watching Pooh about twenty times a day...ok so maybe that isn't your normal routine, but for my Pooh obsessed toddler, it is!

One new note: I started Nutrisystem...today is my fourth day and I'm loving it! I've lost 4 lbs so far and the food is just incredible and I'm feeling good..albiet a little shaky from the sudden decrease in calories, but I'm sure I'll get used to that! If anyone is interested in joining, please email me or post a comment here and I'll be more than happy to get you a coupon (which will in turn get ME a coupon! WOOHOO!)

Everyone enjoy the rest of today! (Oh, and enjoy the new pics of Reagan too!)


  1. that baby is looking more and more like you everyday!!!!

  2. ummmmm, by the way, that was the whole point of the post.....i KNOW thst i cant have any more, but since my body doesnt know that, it is a struggle!!!!dont worry, im nothaving any more

  3. HAHAHA at the "phew" story.

    When Jenna was potty training - every time we'd go in a bathroom she'd listen and say, "Is she going big poop?!?" So embarrassing and so funny. I would be so afraid someone would break wind and she'd start in with the "big poop" talk.

  4. It is so much fun to hear them "gather" new words. Little's vocabulary is still exploding, and you never know what she is going to say next. The bathroom story is hilarious! She is a little doll.
