Reagan's First Thanksgiving












Grandma Denise and Aunt Cate came down for Thanksgiving this year. It was so great to have them here and to be together for Reagan's first Thanksgiving. Reagan even had a mini Thanksgiving dinner of baby food turkey and gravy and sweet potatoes. The turkey was her first taste of meat and I don't think she liked it very well. Just this past week I have also added Cheerios to her diet, and she just can't get enough of them! I've also been cutting her little pieces of apples and bananas, so little by little she is getting sick of the jars of baby food. As you can see from the picture above, she is also quite the little grocery shopper. She loves to push her little grocery cart around the house. I think she will be walking in a few weeks because she already lets go of anything she has pulled up on and stands on her own for several seconds. She is always on the move. Her new favorite game is chasing Abby around the house and trying to take her toy away. Abby is pretty quick, but Reagan does catch her every once in a while. Reagan will just take Abby's tire from her mouth and Abby will let her do it. Abby really is very good with her. It is so funny to watch. Reagan has also gotten even more clingy with me lately. If I am in the room, she won't go to anyone else- not even Steve. It makes me feel horrible and I'm sure it hurts his feelings a little as well. As good as it makes me feel, I am hoping it is just a phase. I guess I should just enjoy it now because when she reaches her teenage years, I'll be lucky if she ever wants to be around me! This is such a great stage because every day I see more and more personality coming through. We are so blessed and have so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving!

I can't believe she is almost walking! Watch out! Thank you for my phone call and card. I can't wait to talk.

Don't beat yourself up to much that she's coming to you more than Steve at this point. Olivia did the same thing, now I'm sad when she wants to go to Ryan instead of me...it's a stage.

She is so big now, I love the pics. I can't believe she has her own shopping cart, too cute.
