2 month check-up

Our daughter is perfectly . . . gasp . . . AVERAGE! What? 50th percentile? That's it? :) I didn't think it would be possible to have an average sized child when you put Jay's and my genes together! But I guess you have to consider that she was born 3 weeks early. The little lady still fits into most of her newborn sized clothing.

Reagan is 11.8 lbs, 23" long, and, as you can clearly see, BEAUTIFUL!!!



We were able to go to Rocky Point with Jay's parents and brother over the MLK holiday. Billy loved the beach, and didn't even care that the water was cold! Well, he didn't care as long as he was IN the water, but the walk home was chilly! I showed him how to put a shell in his pocket, and he quickly started collecting them. He loved playing in the sand, but not the showers he had to take afterward!

General Cuteness

They are changing so fast! Billy is finally starting to talk more. He literally doubled his number of words last weekend in Rocky Point (pictures to come). It's such a relief for me. Thing is, Jay was the one who finally got through to him to practice sounds and words. He wouldn't do it with me!

Reagan is beginning to sleep for longer stretches at night, anywhere from 4-6 hours . . . hip, hip, hooray! She is becoming very interactive and loves to stare, especially at dad and grandma. They are definitely a handful, but lots of fun!

Blessing Day

Reagan's baby blessing was on January 2nd. She was lucky to have lots of her family there to support her on her big day! Thanks to everyone who made the drive to Surprise to be there with us

2nd and 3rd Christmas!

We didn't haul Billy's gifts from us parental figures to Prescott (one of the perks of him still being too young to really "get it"). After we saw all the awesome stuff he was given on the initial Christmas, we decided to put some of our gifts away until his birthday! Here he is opening a few more gifts.

I've learned that when I set up a shot of Billy holding Reagan, there is a VERY small window of opportunity because when he's "done", Billy immediately PUSHES Reagan off of him! Here they are in all their Christmas cuteness!

I don't have any pictures of Billy opening presents on 3rd Christmas (only a token 'sitting in the garbage bag full of Christmas un-wrappings while sucking on a lollipop picture'), but suffice it to say he scored . . . .again! :)

Here he is spending time with his Layton cousins.

Reagan, due to her extreme cuteness and small stature, turned out to be a big hit! But I didn't expect her to be enjoyed more by the cousins than the grown-ups! Timers had to be set to prevent fighting over whose turn it was to hold her! I am really going to miss my baby-sitters! I am totally missing a picture of Brooke, who was also a great little mommy!

We spent Christmas in Prescott with the Brimhalls this year. It was fun, relaxing, and chilly! I loved it! It was fun to watch Billy open presents and interact with his cousins. I'm so glad they will be moving back to AZ soon! Reagan is becoming much more aware of her surroundings. She is getting big; already over 11 lbs at only 6 1/2 weeks!
We had so much fun spending time with family over this Christmas season. I'll post more pics from the Layton Christmas party and Reagan's blessing soon.
