I really had tried to have this post written and ready to go by some time very early this morning. But, when I sat down to write it yesterday afternoon while the kids were sleeping, I realized that I just didn’t like the pictures I had of Reagan. I wanted to show you all how truly wonderful she is, and the pictures I had just weren’t cutting it. I had just commissioned a friend of mine to make some headpieces for me to have on hand for brides, and Reagan was SO excited about them. I was pondering the fact that I didn’t like the pictures I had when Reagan informed me that she was too excited about her birthday to take a nap. Normally this totally wouldn’t fly in our house. But, I took advantage of the opportunity. It was a fairly overcast day, so I wanted to make sure I dressed her in bright colors. As an extra incentive for her, I told her she could wear one of my new pretty flowers if she’d let me take some pictures of her for her birthday. She was SO happy to oblige…and who could blame her? The pieces came out WONDERFULLY! If you’re reading this, Susanne…thanks a bunch! You did awesome!!
I can’t imagine my life without either of my kids. I have learned so much from both of them. But I know in my heart that the bond I have with Reagan will long outlive me. To say that we are close is an understatement. I know now why people feel they will live on forever through their children. And what a wonderful way to live on. Reagan, Happy 4th Birthday! I love you muffin!
I decided it was time to show my images a little differently on here…what do you think?
Have a happy weekend!
