BEGIN Reagan Jane Turns 3 | Corina's Corner

Reagan Jane Turns 3


Yesterday was Reagan's 3rd birthday. For days and weeks we had been talking about when her birthday would be here. And I'm happy to report it finally arrived. We tried to make it a special day for her. We got her favorite "blue cookie" as a treat in the morning, went to Toys'r'us and bought a new toy and got a birthday crown, we went swimming for FHE, and then had Chick-fil-A (or Chicken Play as Reagan calls it) for dinner. All things we know Reagan loves. As a true three-year-old would have it though, the day was actually a little rough for all of us. Reagan threw the biggest tantrum of her entire life when it was time to leave the pool. I've never seen her so upset and inconsolable. It was so big she just might have locked in the amount of siblings she will ever have at 1. Jordan and I were talking about it last night after she went to bed and we think that her fit was so big because it was truly the most fun she's probably ever had (and could actually comprehend that it was more fun than anything else) and she really didn't want to leave.

She is our little fireball and never stops moving (until her head hits the pillow and then she doesn't budge until morning). We've really got our hands full with her. She is passionate about everything under the sun. If it's not her idea it isn't happening without a flight. I hope and pray with every fiber of my being that she puts that independence and drive towards the innate goodness she has and becomes the Wonder Woman she is already on her way to becoming. She has a sweet heart and says the best things, like Sunday when she said, "I'm loving morning time!" or "What a nice warm baby!" (while touching Naomi's head). Don't miss a few more notable Reagan quotes at the end of this post.

Sunday night we had a little family party for this girl out in the garden (Reagan calls our backyard the garden thanks to Peppa Pig). We had a little BBQ with burgers, brats, and hot dogs, chips, veggies and dip. And of course watermelon. For dessert we had a Scandinavian Almond Crown Cake, which was divine! Reagan also requested pink cake, so I made some pink cupcakes, which she called muffins the whole night. I think she liked them.

She got lots of fun presents including a water table, a balance bike, some stuffed horses (a pink one and a purple one which she requested for DAYS!), some Minnie Mouse and Aladdin figurines, bubbles, and chalk. I think it was a pretty good day for her!

I tried to take a quick group picture before people started leaving. Here are the best/funniest 3 we got. It was on a 10 second timer and like I mentioned Reagan never stops moving so it was really hard. I especially like the top one when Reagan came around to the font of the water table and ended up looking at all of us for the picture instead of actually being in it.

I love this girl who made me a mom 3 years ago. Happy birthday to my baby Reagan Jane!

A few other notable Reagan quotes:

That's what I'm talkin about. Owls. I love ducks. Owls. Alex. Owl.

How you doing good?

Mommy hold me a while.

While walking home from church, "Cool shoes mom."

(During a Saturday night prayer) Thank you tomorrow I can wear my pretty dress... (Pause)...with dots and pink.

J: Do you know what day it is? (Acceptable answers: Mothers Day or Sunday)
R: Its tomorrow afternoon.

(Out of the blue) Thank you very Nomi much.
