Favorite Books: Any of them. She likes to point at the pictures and hear us say what the object is.

Reggie at 10 Months

Diaper Size:3

Number of Teeth: 2 - bottom; her top 2 are SLOWLY coming in
Favorite Foods: Chicken & Mixed Veggies, Beef & Mixed Veggies, Rice & Pears
Favorite Snacks: Gerber Garden Tomato & Veggie Garden cheetos
Bath time: She tries to get out of the tub. When we go to wash her off, she doesn't like to lay down and kick like before. She tries to hold her head up out of the water.
Favorite Books: Doesn't really seem to have a favorite these days. She likes to flip the pages.
Latest Tricks:
Going down the stairs: Yup, we taught her how to go down the stairs on her tummy so she doesn't fall down them. It's really funny because sometimes she'll go down on her belly several feet away and crawl backwards towards the stairs. Usually she's at an angle and she's ran into the washer/walls. She'll get stopped there, readjust and run into the opposite wall, then readjust again. It's so funny when she does this!
WALKING!!!: Two days before she turned 11 months, she started walking! She didn't struggle much with it either. It basically went from taking 2 steps between furniture pieces to full on walking from one side of the room to the other. She just seems too tiny to be able to walk already but she's quite independent and wants to keep up with us. She's adorable to watch!

The Little Details
~ She is such a happy and calm baby. She smiles so much now. People are just amazed at how laid-back she is.
~ She points, especially at her dad because he'll do the same to her.
~ She pulls herself onto our Lovesac "bean" bag and then climbs onto the either the loveseat or lounger on either side of it. She'll even jump onto the sac from the couch. She can be very daring sometimes.
Time is just flying! I can't keep up! We just love her so much!

Celebrating Life as First-time Parents!

 Father's Day - June 17, 2012

This year we got to celebrate my first official Mother's Day and Rocky's first official Father's Day! We weren't able to much other than spend time together and go out for dinner to celebrate these days. However, pretty sure I got treated the most for Rocky's Father's Day since he took me shopping. :) He picked the restaurant, BJ's Brewhouse! So Good! Their Pizookie [it's a cookie (lots of flavors to choose from) with ice cream] was so yummy! We got half chocolate chip, half white chocolate chip. Next time, all white chocolate chip.

Anyways, got off on a tangent there, it's crazy to believe that these days, Mother's Day and Father's Day, have already came and went. While watching Reggie grow, learn, and show her little personality more and more is so fun, I wish I could just slow down the time just a little so I could keep up. Even though I have gazillions of pictures, I still don't feel like I take enough and always wish I could/would take more to capture all of Reggie's moments! She is the best thing ever and we're so thankful for her!

I'm thankful for our mothers and fathers and all they've done and continue to do for us! We have fantastic parents - that's all there is to it!

I'm so thankful for how wonderful a dad Rocky is to Reggie! It's so unexplainable how happy it makes me to watch them interact with each other! It's just adorable! My life is absolutely amazing because of these two!

I'm so thankful for the opportunity Heavenly Father has given me to be a mother! I can't explain the immense joy Reggie brings me! She has changed my life so much and I wouldn't have it any other way! Even though I'm exhausted majority of the time and look it, as hard as I try to hide that, all the time and energy spent with her is 100% worth it. I'm so grateful for my job that allows me to work at home so in turn I get to spend the day with Reggie! Even though my job can be very trying sometimes, it has been an outstanding blessing for our family! I need to remember how truly blessed I am more often because it proves that everything else is doable and life is wonderful!

I love my little family so much and I am so thankful to be sealed to them forever! Pure Joy!
