{Reegan Does RICE Cereal}

Our baby is taking some major steps in development lately. Mommy doesn't like all these leaps and bounds because she is growing up too fast for me...just kidding kinda! hehe! So we finally started her on rice cereal yesterday and boy was she ready. Once she figured out what a spoon was and that it brings her food she would grab at it and not just bite but CHOMP down that rice cereal. Daddy was the very first to feed her and then mommy gave it a go. I can tell you this...she will be a good eater when spoon fed. ;) Enjoy the pics of Miss Reegan who is getting closer to being a "big girl" everyday. xo - {Rache}

VERY interested in her bib!

She wanted to pull her bib off! Minor detail it's attached to your neck. ;)

***FIRST BITE!*** She's thinking "What...



Daddy doing a good job feeding baby. She loves this stuff!

More rice cereal PLEASE!

She didn't want to share her rice cereal so she was holding tight onto her bowl. ;)

Blowing bubbles in the rice cereal.

That was GOOD!

{Mommy's Little Model}

So I have recently decided to get into making baby goods because there is a SERIOUS market for handmade headbands, onesies, etc. etc. I had made a few already. I decide to have Reegan model one of my favs! We had a fun little photoshoot...well I thought it was fun! I just love my little calendar baby! Don't you? xo - {Rache}

{Big Day for Baby}

Today our little girl sat up on her own!!! It's amazing how yesterday she couldn't do this and today she could! I can't say enough how wonderful it is to watch her grow and develop everyday. I'm told that it's a first time parent thing...that everything is sparkles and is it ever!!! I'm loving every single day with her. She has stolen our hearts! We also had our first family picnic at the park today...we have decided that this will be our new family tradition. :D Can't wait for many more days just like today. xo - {Rache}

Thank you great grandma Betty for the quilt made by Reegan's great great grandma Sylvia we enjoy it everyday and especially on this special day! :))

{Adam and Jenna's Surprise Engagement Party}

Shhhh! Reegan did a good job keeping the surprise engagement party quite. She almost let it slip a couple time when Jenna came over to visit. ;) We celebrated the engagement of Adam and Jenna on January 15th at Adam's parent's house. Everyone LOVED Reegan!!! And she found a new little friend to love too and his name is Drake. ;) She was rockin out her tutu, leggings, a new handmade headband and ballet slippers for the party....what a cutie she is!

{Watch Reegan Grow}

Watching my baby grow is truly a bitter sweet thing. I'm enjoying every moment but I know I'm going to miss these times in the future. xo - {Rache}

Reegan was well behaved at mommy's appointment last week. Here is a pic of her in the waiting room with her FAV toy that aunt Debbie got her for Christmas. :D xo {Rache}


one of the most wonderful days of my life!

{WOWundred and Fifty}

Wowwwww! I can't believe that in less than 5 months we have come up with 150 {officially as of this post} blog posts related to our little Reegan. I am so thankful that we started this up because we often refer back to older postings about her development, growth, weight, height, or just look at pictures and watch videos of our baby love.

I hope that you all enjoy all the pictures, video and information/writing about Reegan as much as I do. I promise to continue with this in 2011 just as I have been...don't know whether that is a good or bad thing for you all. Hehe! In celebration of 150 posts I think I will go home today and kiss, hug, hold my baby close and tell her I love her 150 times! :)

{Happy 5 Months & Belated 4 Months}

Reegan turned 5 months this week! We celebrated by having some pictures taken with one of her favorite people...her GREATgrandma Betty {Taylor}! I made a special onesie that said "Greatgrandma's Girl!" with a picture of a Grams bird and baby bird. Enjoy!

As of late little missy is:

Laughing and giggling
Almost always smiling
Rolling all the time
Sucking her thumb and/or hand
Loving things that light up {her fav right now is her talking/singing pup she got from Christmas from Aunt Debbie}
Reaching for things
Fake coughing...haha!
Being VERY observant...we can see she is looking at things, watch us and taking it all in!

{Our Lil Penguin}

So I bought Reegan a sweet little penguin wool hat for the next winter and it actually already fits her. :/ I wanted next years Christmas theme in the Harding house to be that of the penguin {I found some neat black and white plastic ornaments that Reegan can't break & beautiful wrapping paper - and that is the how it all started.}

It got me thinking about our family and how I feel like we are a bunch of little penguins. Haha! I'm weird I know. But seriously penguins are very neat creatures! I've decided that if I had to choose an animal to compare my love and dedication for my little one and husband it would be that of the penguin.

Did you know that some some penguins will mate for life?! Penguin parents usually work together to take care of their little baby penguins until the babies are grown. It's amazing how adult penguins take care of their baby penguins in the extreme cold that some of them live in with such harsh conditions. Like a penguin there isn't anything Ryan and I wouldn't do for our baby! Harsh climates, sleepless nights, our love for her could conquer any obstacle thrown our way! :)

{It's a Wonderful Life!}

This year was baby's first Christmas and New Year and for me it was one of the best that I can remember! The 2010 holiday season was so special because it marks the beginning of Ryan and I starting our own family traditions as a daddy and mommy to Reegan. Although she is too young to understand exactly what was going on she was all smiles and giggles when visiting with all of her family. She ended up sleeping through the game playing on Christmas Eve, the present opening on Christmas day and OF COURSE for the ball dropping on New Years Eve but the most important part to me is that she was there with us. She has brought a new joy to our lives and to our family and friends lives too. I don't know what we ever did without our little angel! I was so happy to spend this holiday season with her, she truly is my pride and joy! Ryan and I talk about how we can't wait until future holidays as she will be old enough to understand what is going on BUT this year {2010} will always be special to me because it was the first year I experienced the true joy of parenthood and watching our daughter grow and develop. The light in her eyes as she looked at the Christmas tree this year was so sweet. This moment in time will always hold a special place in my heart. It is definitely a wonderful life with Reegan Taylor Harding, words really can't explain the happiness she has brought to me! I'm enjoying every day, hour and minute with her! I hope that you all had a special holiday with as much LOVE as ours!
