Our Little Iron Chef

February 18, 2011

In the kitchen like Mommy Collage
Apparently she has spent a lot of time watching her Mommy in the kitchen.... or she has watched one too many episodes of Iron Chef America with us, because she knows exactly what to do with her retro play kitchen. She is very loud banging pots and pans around and her appliance of choice seems to be the pink mixer! One night she would not let go of that plastic stick of butter and actually fell asleep clutching it in her little hand! She was probably watching Paula Deen that day:)

Reagan and Her TV
It has been an extremely busy week for me and I didn't really think I was going to have time to post again before next week, but I took these photos last weekend and thought they were too cute to get buried in the archives on my computer. If I don't get them posted right away, I never get them up.

I have to admit, I am in LOVE with the PIGGIES..... as someone suggested, they might need to be her signature look!!

TGIF my friends! Looking forward to some serious down time with my family this weekend. Hope you all enjoy your weekend too.

Way too much cuteness so early in the morning! How in the world do you get anything done in the house with this little one roaming around? I would just want to love up on her all day long. :-)

Hope you're able to relax and enjoy your family this weekend!

She gets cuter and cuter by the day!! Love her outfit and little kitchen :) I don't know too many little girls that don't love to play with a toy kitchen...I know I did when I was growing up!

Wanda said...

Just look at that pure glee on her sweet face. I'm crazy about the piggies too. Fabulous look for her.

We got hooked on the Food Network over Christmas and it's now Dahlia's go to channel. I have no problem with that.

Have a wonderfully relaxing week-end my friend!

Football and Fried Rice said...

yes, those piggies are TOO cute to NOT be your baby girl's signature look :-)

DARLING Reagan - Happy Chef!!

Loving the new hair style...there is no way Gracie would have enough hair for that!!

Mimi said...

Lisa, the piggies are deffo her look! She's getting more gorgeous every day. And I adore her sweater.
Brightened my evening to see your post, I didn't expect one on a Friday, but know what you mean re archives!
I'm unwinding with a glass of wine after an incredibly busy week too. But now it's mid-term, so TGIF!
Have a wonderful weekend, my dear friend!

Dita said...

Love these colorful pictures of your gorgeous girl. So funny the Paula Deen butter line......I'm still cracking up!

I am proud of you for getting these up......I have so many moments sitting on the archives of my computer but am determined to get them up!!

Happy for the long weekend!


Virginia said...

Oh yes, she rocks the piggies like no other! She is beyond adorable and I love that smile. Kerry saw these photos and said "dat's Ying Ying" (her China nick-name) Ha ha!

jade said...

Well, they have all said it already but I wanted to say thanks as well. I was smiling at the first pictures and the post about your girl banging her pots and pans and the not letting go of the butter stick (I can so imagine the noise... we don't have a kitchen for our girl yet, but she doesn't need one to make noise! and as for holding on to stuff, well, she knows all about it too); and then I reached the last picture and there you are, you have another comment! Thanks for brightening up our very grey weekend Lisa and Reagan!

Tammie T. said...

LOVE this post! Reagan looks so happy!
What a bright way to start the day! :)

Lordy, she's precious! Love the photos Lisa.Are you just having the time of your life? and fyi.....that young man of yours - way too handsome for his own good!

Hope you still read the additional comments...Three years ago we visited our son who had taught English for a year in China.
When we went back to the USA, we were seated in business class, surrounded by FIVE American couples with their just adopted child from China! They started whimpering at take-off, but they were very GOOD for the rest of the entire 15 hour trip!
As a grandmother of 6, I know that's a feat! Your little girl is a cutie!
