Daddy Giving Thanks

Since it is Thanksgiving, I thought I would sit down and jot down a few things I am thankful for this year. I have so many things to be thankful for, because of the amazing people I have in my life. First, I am most thankful for the beautiful daughter God blessed Rachel and I with on August 12th 2010 (my birthday by the way). I have never been more proud of the Woman/Mother Rachel has become, and I know Reegan is going to grow up with a wonderful women in her life. Watching Reegan grow these past 3+-months have been amazing. I have seen her go from sleeping 23 hours per day, to not wanting to sleep at all. She has gone from a fragile infant, to a confident baby. She is the most amazing part of this Harding family and I can not say enough how thankful I am to have her in my life. Reegan has brought our families closer together, and has given everyone around her a new perspective on life. Second, Rachel and I have been so lucky to have my mom and Rachel's Grandma help us watch Reegan as we go back to work. These two amazing women have helped Rachel and I feel confident Reegan is in good hands while we are working trying to give her the best life possible. We both look up to Janet and Betty, and know they are playing a key role in the development of our little Angel. Third, Rachel and I have a great family and Reegan has amazing Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins. The most important thing in life is family, and we hope to instill this in Reegan. Fourth, I am thankful for all the friends we have in our life. Rachel and I have a great support group here in Phoenix, and we are so lucky to have such great friends and such great people in our and Reegan's life.

I hope everyone has a very happy Thanksgiving with your family. Cherish those around you, and make sure they know you love them.

{Ms. Tutu Model}

Well today was Reegan's first photoshoot as a model for auntie Kristi's business of handmaking tutus. She did pretty good but I can't wait until she is able to sit up on her own because there was a lot of balancing acts going on and propping her up. Above is the first picture of the session that is perfection! Awesome job Jessica Flecky of Flecky Fotography! Enjoy these pics and stay tuned for more pics to come!

Also visit for awesome tutus handmade by Truly Unique Baby Gifts and see some SUPER cute tutu models! :D

{Reegan's Raspberries}

Reegan has started to try and blow raspberries and make bubbles with her mouth. It's so cute now but I can't wait until she really gets its down. She loves it when mommy does it to her and you can tell she is trying hard to do the same thing. LOL! She is so cute! She is trying to do this right now as I'm typing. Haha! I love this little baby girl! xo - {Rache}

{Forks errr Flagstaff}

Reegan enjoyed her first trip out of Phoenix to lovely Flagstaff/Happy Jack area. It was quite the learning lesson to pack and get on the road with a newborn!!! I now know that it will take a few days to really have everything in order rather than packing a day before/day of. But none the less we had a wonderful time with our friends the Sullivan, Riemer and Steven families. Ryan kept saying that he can't wait until next year when Reegan can play with the boys. :D Enjoy the pics below of our lil one all bundled up in her Flagstaff fashions and her friends too! xo - {Rachel}
