Reagan the wild woman

showing off her skirt I made for her and holding her snacks for the car
Reagan gets wilder by the day.  Man I love that girl, but she blows my mind!  A few days ago she was being so silly and I was going to say "Reagan you are a mess!"  I said "Reagan, you are a...and then she says Mess! I know Mommy!
She drinks the bath water, sloshes her hands around in the ranch dressing intended to be used to dip the pizza crust in.  Smears it into her hair after she sloshes them around.  Absolutely would not nap this afternoon and kept yelling "Mommy, come get me, I'm awake!"
I was holding her when we came in the house from the garage this afternoon, Tung had opened the fridge to get something out and I didn't pay attention to how close I was to the door, I turned around with her and banged her head against the door, so now she has a nice bruise almost in the middle of her forehead. :(  Poor girl, as much damage as she does to herself (she's had more scratches in 2 1/2 years than Payton has had in 5) I had to add something to it.
She has more energy than even she knows what to do with, but I couldn't love her more!

"Put me in my bed"

Reagan for a while has not wanted me to read to her at night, she wants Daddy to, occasionally she'll let me but not often.  I thought I was going to get to read and sing to her tonight but it took some convincing from Daddy to let me.  While I'm singing Stuck Like Glue by her request the timer goes off for the cupcakes that are baking and I have to go get them, so I put her in her crib, then come back for her.  She requests the ABC's so after I sing those, she takes out her Yi-yo and says "put me in my bed" evidently she had started reading her Elmo book while I was gone and it was more important to be put back in her bed to read it, than have me sing to her :(

Payton's Teeth

Payton insists that one of her bottom teeth is loose already.  It doesn't really seem too wiggly, maybe a little, but the dentist said that it was fine when she went back in October.  But the other night after she had eaten some of her Halloween candy before bed, her Daddy says to her "You better come brush your teeth or they're going to lose them all!" She says "Daddy, I'm not trying to lose them all, just one!"


This year for Halloween I made both of the girls costumes. Payton wanted to be Fancy Nancy from Bonjour Butterfly so I made the shirt and we had the leggings to go with it and she found her fancy shoes, crown and all the accessories to go with it.  Reagan wanted to be a cupcake so I found some ideas online and turned her into a cupcake with fleece and felt.  They both looked so cute.
We carved our pumpkins the weekend before Halloween and it was SO very warm this year that was a bad idea, by the Wed. before they were flat on the front porch, they'd even been in the shade but it was just too hot and they rotted very quickly, I didn't even get a picture of them.  Oh well, lesson learned!
