Tonight I said, Reagan lets say prayers. I started and she interrupted and said, No Mommy like this. "Thank you Jesus for the rain, Thank you Jesus for our food, Thank you Jesus for keeping us safe, Thank you Jesus for my house, Thank you Jesus for my Mommy's white shirt" Then she says "Is that good?" I said yes, then she gave me a kiss. Then she says "Oh and one more, Thank you Jesus for my family, and they lived Happily Ever After. The End."...I was thinking not bad for a 3 1/2 year old, until she got to Happily Ever After then I thought...hmm does she think Jesus is a Disney character? LOL

Barbie Clothes

My husband cringed when he saw how much Barbie clothes were at Target and how few were in the package, which is true, so I looked online for some different tutorials to make some for my daughter for Christmas.  Craftiness is Not Optional has some great ones that are very easy to follow, and I think my homemade ones are much better than store bought, it was a lot of fun and I think they turned out too cute!

Rocking Chair

I love that Reagan still likes to be rocked, even at almost 3 1/2 years old. Tonight she was impatient and couldn't wait until I was done with Payton so she kept yelling "Rock...Rock...Rock" until I came into her room.  I rock her and sing and she squeezes her chubby little hands underneath my arms. I love how she wraps herself all around me to rock, and tonight for the first time in weeks, our little night owl is asleep before 8:30!

Unique, Creative Reagan

Reagan is such a unique creative little girl.  She has been amazing us recently with some of the ideas she comes up with.  Last night when Tung was putting her to bed, she told him that they should make letters with their bodies, so he laid down on the ground and she laid across the top like a T. Then she wanted to make a P and she curled herself around next to him to make the loop.  I was with Payton and they came over and she wanted Payton to play too so they could make an A and a B, she had wanted to make an A with Tung and then realized she needed another person.

An hour after we had put her to bed I could still hear her upstairs, I went to check on her and she was sitting up in bed drinking down the water in her cup. I asked her what was wrong and she said she had the "hicks" as she then hiccuped! She said she had drank all her water and they wouldn't go away, so I told her to hold her breath and swallow the air, she hiccuped again, so then I poked my fingers in her sides really quick to startle her, and told her how sometimes if you get scared they will go away, she sat there a minute and looked around and said "they're gone!" Then she remembered how on the show Max and Ruby, someone scared Max with a mask and his hiccups went away.

She is a collector of everything, play food, baby clothes, you name it, she puts it all in bags and carries it around, she shoves it all behind the door in her room so you can't get it open, she even puts stuff in her closet, I was searching for these baby clothes and couldn't find them for a week, I finally open her closet and they are all inside the sleeping bag cover in the bottom.  I had a $0.60 fine on a library book because she put it inside the footstool in the living room and I couldn't find it, and a $0.40 fine on another one because she had it slide down beside her bed, she knew it was there but it was her secret hiding spot so she could read it before she went to sleep, so she didn't tell me.

She has done very well going potty the last few days and has worn underwear all day since the weekend, she doesn't want to take them off now and even slept with them on with a pull up over top, good thing too because she woke up wet.  She did make me take her to the bathroom last night twice in literally 1 minute at the restaurant, but she's going and is so proud.
