I've been a bad blogger....

I don't know why it has been a month since I've done anything, but it has. And actually a lot has happened around the Reiker household so here goes....

Reagan perfected her kissing...

Josh got a new boat and took Reagan and I for a cruise.

And we saw a dolphin..

Then Reagan got her first taste of freedom.

All and all, a pretty busy (and fun) month for us!

8 Months Old Already!!

It seems like all of a sudden Reagan is 8 months old. The time has flown! Fortunately for me she is not crawling yet, but she is really scooting all over the place. She has her two bottom teeth and her favorite new thing is apparently yelling. To be more specific, yelling in public.

This past weekend Reagan visited with her cousins and was not really feeling the love. She didn't understand why everyone did not coming running over as she yelled at them flailing her arms about. Fortunately she settled down and all was well. Here are some pictures of the visit...

Reagan was our sweet little Valentine this year. She got all dressed up for the holiday and had a special message for her daddy.

Tagged - Again!!!

I was tagged on Facebook for 25 random things and now Holly tagged me on her blog for 7 random things. I have exactly copied the first 7 of my Facebook 25 for anyone who has already read this there. I prefer to think of it as being efficient rather than cheating. So here they are:
1. Ugh! I hate being tagged to do things, but I love the people who tagged me and I have finished the Twilight Saga so....
2. I have a serious flying phobia and that little Hudson River stunt did not help.
3. I see a crazy person doctor for my phobia and he has me visualize "a great white sea eagle" (Osprey for the rest of us). Oddly enough this appears to help as I no longer think that flying = certain death.
4. I still have a wisdom tooth and the dentist tells me if I don't have it pulled it will just continue to drop because there is no opposing tooth. Could this be true? I have never seen anybody with just one long crazy tooth. I think it is a trick.
5. I once caught a 60 pound Cobia all by myself.
6. Josh bought me a fancy sewing machine for Christmas and I am only able to thread the needle. Sometimes.
7. On my very, very first date with Josh I got a Tortilla chip lodged in my throat and spent a significant portion of the night in the bathroom trying to figure out what to do.

So I tag Christian and Annie

The Longest Car Ride Ever

It has been a while since I posted because we have done some traveling recently. Reagan and I tagged along with Josh when he went to a meeting with Lowes in Mooresville, NC. Mapquest estimated this to be a 9 1/2 hour drive. We were able to make it in 12 short hours.

Reagan is not too sure about road trips at this point.

After the new jumper purchase Reagan adjusted to vacation quite nicely.

Our cabin.

It was 23 degrees when we arrived in North Carolina. Luckily it warmed up a little.

Reagan's favorite gift was wrapping paper

Thanks for the delicious shoes Aunt Tana!

Finally some toys that make noise!

Going for a spin on the rocking pig

Christmas Eve

This year we continued our Christmas Eve tradition of attending the Children's Christmas Eve Service at Church and then having dinner with our family at our house. I added a new tradition (that I stole from Annie and her family) of baking a birthday cake for Jesus. I'm going to have to improve my cake decorating skills before Reagan gets old enough to read. This year it read "H. B. J." because I had some issues with the icing. : ) Anyway here are some pics of Reagan on her very first Christmas Eve.....

Parenting 101

Reagan loves her sweet potatoes.....

But Josh quickly learned that they don't mix well with her favorite activity, "the airplane"

You can see how happy he is that I took a picture before handing him the towel!
