Reagan and I have been part of a play group since she was 4 months old. There are 10 babies in it, and they are all around the same age. So we decided to have a group first birthday party for them at Romp N Roll. It was so much fun! All of the families came, and one of the other moms made cupcakes so each baby had their own! Grandma Barb and Aunt Karly came too, and it was so great to have them there. Romp N Roll is the perfect place for a birthday party! Everyone had a great time!

Reagan turned 1 on March 11th! I can't believe it has been a year already! I would say that she had a very happy, fun filled first birthday. We started the day by going to the gym (she now loves the gym child watch so she had a great time). When we got home, her best friend, Lincoln came over to play and test out her new chair (one of her many birthday presents). Then after a nice long nap Daddy came home from his weekly trip (a day early- just for her birthday), Aunt Karly came over with her boyfriend, Mike and Grandma Barb made an awesome dinner for everyone. Then Reagan got to dig in to her very own birthday cake. She was very unsure at first, but after she sampled the frosting, she stuck both hands in and smeared it all over her face. Steve tried to demonstrate how to eat it but I think she would rather wear it. The best part was we had Grandma Denise, Aunt Cate, Uncle Andrew, and Aunt Niki on the webcam so they all got to see Reagan's first incounter with sugar! But even with all that sugar she was still in bed sound asleep by 7:30........my little angle! Happy Birthday Sweetheart! I love you!
We are having a party for all of the babies in our playgroup at Romp n Roll this weekend so I will definitely post some pictures after that. I can only hope that all the rest of the years of her life don't go by this fast!
John, Krysta, and Tom came out to visit for a long weekend and it was so great to spend some time with them! Reagan was loving all the attention and all of the blackberries! The first night we got a sitter and we all went to a nice resturant uptown, and the second night Karly took Krysta, Tom, Krysta's sister, Jodee, and me out on the town with all of her friends. We had so much fun! The weather was beautiful all weekend so we spent a lot of time outside. We can't wait to hang out with them again soon!
Steve turned 28 last week and unfortunately, he had to leave early in the morning to go out of town for a few days. But Reagan and I got up early and she put on her special outfit for Daddy. She ran right up to him to give him a hug right when he came down stairs. What better birthday present could you ask for?
