a little bean update

So I've had a few requests to post a couple recent photos of the cutest child on the planet, Reagan (my niece). I can't believe how fast she's growing and how smart she is! She answers all our questions, lets us know what kind of food she wants (the way she says cracker is hilarious!), tells everyone "be-boo" which is the equivalent to "love you," yells "Hi Dan!" every time he walks in the door, says "see ya" when she's leaving, absolutely loves to sit down and "read" books, loves to take care of her babydolls, and says please and thank you ALL the time. :)

Quite possibly the cutest thing she says is my name. She couldn't quite say Nicole when she started talking so she called me "Dee-Doe." I'm not really sure how she came up with that but it's SO adorable! I really hope it sticks. How cute will it be if she calls me 'Aunt Dee-Doe' when she's older!? (Could I be anymore of a dork about it?)

Anyway, here are three of my favorite recent pictures of her. I've got big plans for a photo shoot of her soon so keep an eye out for it! Getting her to cooperate might be a bit of a challenge. She's too interested in learning new things to sit and smile for my camera. :)

I cant believe how big she has gotten! She is soooo cute. Im sure Aunt Dee-Doe will stick. Austin couldnt say Angela, he called her Ga. (not sure how he came up with that) But...it stuck and all 3 of them still call her Aunt Ga. Its so cute to hear them say it at 11, 10 and 9yrs old.

Aaaahhhhh! I LOVE the color one! So so so cute. :)

When you do your big photoshoot of her, should I bring Flash over so we can have a picture of them looking out the window and chatting? Ha ha, kidding! But if you want company for that one, I'd be down. Maybe Billy could team up on making her laugh or something. We like Reagan. :)
