She is growing up so fast!


Reagan is now 4 and 1/2 months old and is getting bigger and more mobile by the day! Every morning when I pick her up I swear she is heavier, and now when I leave her on her play mat for a minute, I return to find that she has rolled ten feet away. She is now also rolling from her back to her tummy, and she scootches both forward and backward. Steve put together her Exersauser last weekend, and she absolutely loves it. She loves to bounce and spin around, play with all the toys, and put then all in her mouth :) I have started a play group for babies 0-6 months on the Charlotte mommies website, and Reagan and I have both had a lot of fun meeting other babies and moms. There are 6 babies in the group and Reagan is the only girl, but she can roll, scootch, and hold her head up just as well as the big boys!
Reagan has also recently started sleeping longer at night and taking more predictable naps during the day. She still doesn't love the stroller or car seat, but she is always happy in the Bjorn. Today we took her to the pool and it was the first time that we actually put her in the water. Steve, my mom and I took turns carrying her around the pool and she seemed to really enjoy kicking her feet and looking at the water. She is such a good baby! There is no way I could imagine my life without her. But next week, Steve and I are going to Mexico for 7 days for Cap and Wendy's wedding. I am very excited for the trip, but I am also very sad/nervous about leaving Reagan. She will be in great hands, as my mom, Denise, and Karly will all be here to take care of her, but I just can't imagine how much I'm going to miss her. I had my hair done today and was away for 2 hours and that was hard enough. I know it will be harder on me than it will be on her. I just hope everything goes smoothly for the grandmas! Steve and I have the 2 best moms in the world....not to mention the best little baby girl!

You're my hero! You are tough being away from her. I know you will do great. And so will she.
