Our Visit To Rachel and Lilly's in Utah

Reagan and I recently spent a week in Salt Lake City, Utah visiting my best friend Rachel, and her beautiful two year old daughter, Lilly. I was so nervous about flying across the country with my little girl who doesn't sit still for two seconds, but she actually surprised me and did really well on the flights (thank God for portable DVD players and patient passengers). But it was so worth it to be able to see Rachel and Lilly (it had been over a year) and to have them meet Reagan! Reagan and Lilly hit it off right away and were inseperable for the whole visit. It was so cute to see them play together and interact! I know they will be life long friends, but I just wish we lived closer! Rachel is an amazing mom, and Lilly is the most well behaved and polite two year old I have ever met! I got lots of tips and advice from Rach and I'm hoping Reagan will also have a very mild case of the terrible twos. During our visit, we went on a hike in the beautiful mountains of Utah, went to Rachel's gym several times, went shopping, went out to eat, Rachel and I got pedicures, and we all got lots of quality play time together! It couldn't have been a better vacation! We miss you already, Rachel and Lilly, and we can't wait to see you again!

Little Miss Congeniality

Reagan has to be one of the most friendly one year olds I have ever seen! Her new thing is that she waves at everyone! It is really very cute. In the grocery store, she waves at everyone that walks by until they notice her and wave back, when we are outside, she waves at evey car that goes by and even sometimes to planes that fly by, when the camera comes out she waves, when a babysitter comes, she happily waves goodbye to me, and when I put her down in her crib for naps and for bed at night she waves goodbye as I close the door. It is so sweet. It is also fun to see the reactions of total strangers who can't help but smile when they see her little smiling face and that cute little flick of the wrist that she does. I can only hope that Reagan will remain so friendly and care free as she gets older.
