Getting a bath is one of the highlights of Reagan's day!

She absolutely loves the water and would stay in there for hours if we let her.

I kind of had a feeling she was going to be a water girl when we attempted the first bath in China. I was prepared for her to be frightened of the bath because it is a foreign concept to these little ones, but she was not scared at all and seemed to love the water and of course the bubbles:)

Last week when I posted the video of Reagan in the bath giggling, I realized that I have never taken photos of her splashing around in the tub. I have done this with both Nick and Sarah when they were little and wanted to have some of Reagan as well. As you can see, I had a hard time choosing just a few.....

Her love of the water is evident and Pat and I are really anxious to get her to the beach this summer! We think she is definitely going to have a blast on the beaches of Cape Cod with her brother, sister, and many many cousins! Can you just imagine her in a cute bathing suit with her little pigtails and sunglasses? I CAN'T WAIT!!!

I wish I had more time to write but I have to run..... so many cute little moments that we are experiencing with Reagan these last few days that I want to share, but just don't have the time to articulate my thoughts into posts.

This little girl definitely keeps us hopping....all of us! Those of you that said "Get your running shoes ready" were not kidding. She went from taking a few wobbly steps to sprinting across the room all in a matter of days. There is definitely no stopping her. She is a ball of energy and mighty determined in everything she does or tries to do.

Have a Happy Wednesday and have a GREAT WEEK!

Sorry I have been MIA. I have not really made bloggy rounds the past few weeks. I have been a little busier than normal with work and family life and have not had much free time for the computer. I hope to make my way around to visit everyone by this weekend. Time is really flying. Can you believe that we are almost into March?

This is such a fun age... where she's in a constant 'discovery' mode.

I just love that she seems to blossom more and more each time I visit here. She is so obviously thriving on all the love. =)

Wanda said...

Nothing sweeter than the joys of baths and bubbles. Such a treat to catch a glimpse of your Reagan really whopping it up in the bath.

So, she's taken off like a bullet, has she? Oh, it starteth. Keep those running shoes on.

Hope the rest of the week goes nice and smooth for you. No more bumps.

Hugs!!!

Hi Lisa. Well, I eventually got my new lap top and have had lots of fun posting flip footage... Loved these bubble bath pics...Gracie enjoys the tub too, I spend evry minute saying "Sit down, please!" or "Dont put that sponge in your mouth!" She likes to suck the bath water out of it. YEUCH!! One year olds, eh??
Do you think R is quite tall for her age? She is super cute!

Love Letters To China said...

So adorable. She is getting so big! I love the Chinese duck! My little one loves the water too. He learned to swim in no time at all. Whenever we go out in the backyard, Liam will jump in the pool...even when the water temp is less than desirable! Hope you're able to slow down this coming weekend. I know work has been super crazy.

Hugs...

Oh sweet girl!! I love those first ones with her little flippy hair. These totally remind me of her first bath, when she'd dip her little fingers in the bubbles and then suck them off, LOL! Love that little duck too!

I love to see the big smile on her face, the toothy grins, and the twinkle in her eyes! She has really blossomed in her new family! We have two daughters from China. They are now 7 & 8. Our bio sons are 19, 21, 23. Our lives are busy, busy, too! Thank you for sharing. Your photographs are beautiful...I hope to find time to figure out my camera someday! (And I loved your post about the Valentine Nick! Having 3 sons, I totally knew what you were talking about!) Thanks, again!

Lynn said...

I love, love, love toddler bathtub pictures. She is absolutely adorable. I have been following along your journey and have been brought to tears of joy many times. Thank you for sharing your life's journey thus far. Have a blessed day.

In just the year that I have followed your blog - your son Nick has grown up so much - he is an incredibly handsome young man and seems to have a great head on his shoulders.

Have a beautiful day!
