As I finished nursing Reagan this morning in the serene gray-blue light of our room, she gazed up at me and the moment that I'd been waiting for and giving to everyone else first occurred. She looked up at me with her big beautiful eyes and smiled. A full, open mouth, generous smile. There was no fan or blinds in sight, just my girl smiling at me.That single moment erased all of the worrying about her health, the hours spent dealing with her never-ending tummy issues, the sleepless nights, the vomiting and spit up, and all of the other unenviable aspects of a newborn. In that moment, it was just us, taking it in, being mother and daughter. I smile now as I think of how lucky I am that she's my daughter.
Keith and I were married on November 28, 2003 after dating for six years...geez, that's a long time! We love hanging out with each other, our families, and our friends. Life keeps us busy and we wouldn't have it any other way.
Luke Tomas was born April 15, 2008 and is such a joy. He has been such an easy baby so far and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it lasts. We feel so blessed to have him in our lives and we can't wait to make so many memories with our sweet boy.
Reagan Rose was born January 21, 2010 and has been such an amazing addition to our family. She has a flair for the dramatic and already adores her big brother. We're excited to see how she continues to keep things interesting!
