Three years have flown by since our sweet Reagan was born.
I feel like I blinked and here we are. I’m sure I’ll be saying this every year for the rest of my life, but time flies and time flies even faster when you have kids.
I can’t help but think about the day that she was born. It was not an easy pregnancy by any means. Complication after complication occurred, but all along, our sweet, strong girl hung in there. I can still remember praying that we could make it to full term with the pregnancy. I was induced the day before I turned 37 weeks, so that was a victory to me. Our girl was born healthy and she has been a joy since day one. Here is a little tour down memory lane from the past three years…
She has always had the best cheeks and a bow on, since day one.
Teddy has always been the proudest big brother. They are the best of friends, when they’re not fighting of course. 🙂
I can still remember the day she turned one. I thought that the year was the fastest year of my life. I remember thinking that time flew when Teddy was a baby, then Reagan was born and time seems to fly even faster. I blinked and my babies are 5.5 and 3!
Another short year of all things princess, dress-up and girly and we were celebrating her second birthday! Boo, her best friend (the stuffed dog she always has with her), came into her life this year. She saw him in a store, grabbed him, smothered him with wet kisses and the rest is history. He has been her best friend and constant companion ever since.
And here we are at three. This year has been full of all things girly. She started ballet this year and has loved it. She throws parties and has tea parties on a regular basis. If I had to predict her future career, I would say that she would either be a party planner or a veterinarian. The girl loves animals. Especially dogs. She is one of the kindest souls out there with animals.
She broke her arm in the fall…she is fearless and a daredevil and full of personality. This might be one of my favorite pictures of her ever. It was our 3rd doctor appointment in 24 hours…I was trying to make her smile…she was thrilled.
With her best buddy, Boo.
With her other best buddy…
I am so incredibly proud of my sweet girl. I’m so thankful that God chose us to be her parents. Her laughter is contagious. Her strong-willed personality is hilarious and sweet at the same time. The girl knows what she wants. 🙂 It is a joy to watch her grow and see the person that she is becoming. There are lots of days that I wish I could bottle her up and keep her this age forever. The age where you wake up and put on a princess dress and throw tea parties all day long. The age where you have puppy contests (dog shows) and play salon with all your stuffed animals and play veterinarian with your puppies. The days that you wake up and ask your mama to give you some lipstick to put on. The days where you just are who you are and life is carefree and happy.
As we start out the next year of her life, I pray for health and happiness and I pray she always knows how much she is loved. We love her big time. The day she was born, 7/9 at 9 minutes to 7, will always be one of the best and one of the most favorite moments and days of my life.
Happy third Birthday, Reagan! You are life-changing and we love you big time.
