Raegan and I made it home safely on Sunday. It's been a week of getting back to our "normal" routine. It kind of feels odd to be completely alone (other than Raegan's company, of course!). For a week and a half I got used to people being in and out of the house all day, whether it be my brothers coming home for lunch, or my parents. I LOVE getting to visit and be with my family. I already miss them like crazy, and we won't get to see them again until Thanksgiving. I can make it a month.... Maybe.. :)
Raegan has gotten back to taking her naps regularly, or a regularly as they EVER where, now that we are back home. Jym and I are beginning to think that she is working on some little teeth. She has been a tad bit grouchier than normal and she is gnawing on her little fingers. Part of me is excited about this "Milestone", but another isn't... First of all, our little baby girl isn't such a little baby anymore... Second... This "teething" pain is going to be around for a while... Oh well, she's gotta go through it, might as well start it now.
In other news, Raegan is getting to where she LOVES her bath more than she even used to. She will splash water in the "Big Girl" tub like CRAZY! If I turn her over onto her tummy, she will start kicking her little legs and splashing water with her arms. Jym said it looks like she is "doggie paddling". It is too cute. Maybe she'll like the water better than her momma does! Yes, I HATE water!... Well... Deep water!
My all-time favorite holiday is coming up. I LOVE HALLOWEEN!! Raegan is going to be bumble-bee! She looks so adorable in her little suit. As far as she is concerned, it is just something else to chew on! lol... Next weekend we have the school's annual Fall Festival and Halloween Carnival. That will be Raegan's "Halloween" seeing as how she can't really go trick-or-treating this year. Besides, Jym has a football game on Halloween Night anyways... They have a "Spook Parade" at the Festival, which would be SO Neat to have her in... but that would mean Momma would have to be on stage too... I don't know... I'm thinking about it... If they even have an entry for kiddos her age... Who knows? I got all excited about Halloween coming up that I painted Raegan her first pumpkin... I know... carving one is more traditional... but painting one is SO much easier!! lol... It is cute... If I do say so myself! lol... My Mom got a green apple gourd for her while we were up visiting that I was going to bring home and paint Frankenstein on .... but... well, you guessed it.... It got left on Mom and Dad's porch! UGH! I swear... I'd forget my head these days, if it wasn't attached!!
