Feeling so blessed that I have get to have the experience of being a mother to a girl and boy that are healthy Hardings! Just thinking about all the new experiences has me so excited! OH BOY! It's a random thing but I appreciate being chosen to have very different experiences with my two far the second pregnancy is a little more difficult but I know the next baby will bring us so much joy...just like Reegan but in a different way. I know this is the same for all kids (boy or girl) but already having the experience of a girl I'm looking forward to a boy now. And I'm pretty sure daddy is more than a little happy to FINALLY have someone to talk to about football. ;) I can't wait for the months to fly by and to be sharing a sweet, new little Harding mug with you all!

{Gummi Bear - OH BOY!!!!}

Well it's a pretty important day for Gummi Bear because we found out today that Bear is a BOY! We couldn't be happier to add a little boy into the mix so now the teams are even in the Harding Household! We should have known all along when the pregnancy test that I randomly selected was called Clearly Blue along with the blue winter mint gum I purchased that day. :)Now for the name...which we might already have selected. ;)

{Gummi Bear Update - 11 weeks}

What's going on with bear this week:

Your baby, just over 1 1/2 inches long and about the size of a fig, is now almost fully formed. Her hands will soon open and close into fists, tiny tooth buds are beginning to appear under her gums, and some of her bones are beginning to harden.

She's already busy kicking and stretching, and her tiny movements are so effortless they look like water ballet. These movements will become more frequent as her body grows and becomes more developed and functional. You won't feel your baby's acrobatics for another month or two — nor will you notice the hiccupping that may be happening now that her diaphragm is forming.

{Reegan is REALLY One}

I can't believe that almost a week ago that my baby turned one! WHERE DOES THE TIME GO?!?!? This last year has been a whirlwind of learning experiences, witnessing some major developing and lots and lots of special moments full of love! Reegan has truly stolen the hearts of all those around her and I don't know what we ever did without our little diva doll. ;) Ryan and I couldn't be happier about all the people (He's always saying I didn't know we knew that many people LOL!) that care, support and love not only us but our growing family too.  We are thankful for each and every person that was able to come out and celebrate a HUGE milestone in Reegan's life! You are all so appreciated...more than you know!

Well what’s going on with Reegan lately you’re wondering? She is growing faster than ever! She dropped down to 33rd percentile for weight (which is normal since she is a walker/runner/tumbler now) coming in at 20.8 lbs, for height she is 80something percentile at 30 inches I believe LOL! And for head she remains in the 90something percentile...poor thing LOL! She got shots on her birthday and they weren't the good kind. ;) She had two in her legs....MMR and chicken pox.

She LOVES bubbles so much right now! Part of her birthday party favors for the big kids were ice cream scented bubbles and we had to bust into a couple of them and now she is a bubble addict! It's probably the word she says the most right now. She also says momma, daddy, baby, nom nom, binky, ouch and of course NO! I'm working on teaching her DIVA doll too since she defines the phrase. ;) She also picks up new things everyday...she is such a little smarty! We have her take dirty diapers out to the big garbage outside (kinda random) but she loves it. Haha! A little worker bee already. She also LOVES to work with Great Grandma Betty on cleaning the front of the refrigerator...she gets her own little dust rag with no cleaner of course. She likes to always see daddy off to work rather than him just leave...she started to cry every time he walked out the door for work so now we just wave goodbye to him until he drives away and she is OK with this. ;) Books are her FAV right now. The little cardboard books of hers have babies on them and we are always saying "kiss the baby, love the baby" and she promptly does mmmmmmmmmuah as she kisses the baby on the book. She even kisses the baby on mommy's phone which is her. Haha! LOVES! And one of the last things I can think of at the moment (and auntie Heather will agree with me) is that she gives the BEST hugs (squeezes so tight around your neck) and is a TALENTED dancer already!!! She starts to bounce her little diapered booty when she hears music or shakes her little head. She def has fav songs too which is SO CUTE!

Well this is QUITE the post! Please see some pictures of mommy, daddy and Reegan on the day of her party from the AMAZINGLY TALENTED Jessica Flecky of Flecky Fotography! It was a crazy day of wonderful chaos and celebrating! More party pics coming soon!!!
