Birthday, Birthday Party, and Sweetest Day

Our baby girl turned one year old yesterday! Her party was today and we have lots of pics to show for it. I will admit I'm overjoyed that Reagan is one...but I'm also sad because I'm realizing how fast life is actually flying by. Especially since she's reached all sorts of milestones lately. Here are some pics to enjoy...she did a great job with her cupcake and received so many books, toys, and sippy cups to entertain. We are so grateful for all our friends and family that helped make today so fun.





And not only was today Reagan's party, but it was also Sweetest Day. Last year we were in the hospital, recovering from Reagan's birth. Jason brought me beautiful lilies, my favorite flower, and he brought Reagan a single lily...how appropriate! Anyways, as we were running around the house getting things in place for the big shin dig today, Jason marches in the living room with presents for me! What is this?!? He had a big Charlotte Russe bag and an Old Navy bag. He knows I was in need of winter boots with no high heels, appropriate for pregnancy and holding a one year old among snow and ice. So, he picked up a pair of black and brown boots for me from Charlotte Russe. Also, I needed a maternity coat for this winter since I'll have a huge belly by the time the dead of winter is upon us. So out comes a maternity overcoat from Old Navy! I also was graced with a pair of maternity khakis that were on clearance. Unfortunately they don't fit--so they will go back. But anyways, what a surprise this was! Jason's always good at surprising me, one of his finest qualities of our dating era I admit. And he found money in our account to somehow hide from me and surprise me on Sweetest Day. More to come on Reagan's gifts in the next few days...

Oh, I love that little grin! I'm so glad I could celebrate her 1st birthday w/you all. Sorry that little Isaac wasn't w/me. He's doing much better now!

Looks like her birthday was lots of fun! She is getting so big. And I wanted to say congrats on the news of your little boy! How exciting. We absolutely love experiencing both....you're on the road to the same birth order as ours. :) I have missed seeing you the last few months at recipe club....maybe I'll actually be able to make it next month.
