Rheygan is already 1

We have been having a lovely weekend and an exciting one at that! Rheygan is already 1 year old! Saturday we had a little party at Nana and Papa's house with the whole family and 2 special guests. Grandma and Uncle drove down from El Paso to spend this special occasion with us. Jake cooked some delicious burgers and we topped the evening off with cupcakes and presents. We all sang "Happy Birthday" to her and she was amazed and confused at first as to why everyone was singing and staring at her but she loved it and especially loved her first cupcake. She is a plain Jane when it comes to flavors so she got a simple vanilla cupcake and she loooved it!

Here's to loving family, great friends, and the love of God for bringing this sweet girl into our lives. She loves being the center of attention and especially loves to laugh and play with everyone. She will always start to dance when she hears a beat and she adores her big sisters who look after her like little mommies. She has been really walking now for about the last 2 weeks and curiously chases George the cat around the house. In the evening she wants to grab hold of someone's finger and take a walk around the yard, picking up rock souvenirs along the way. Her favorite food are sweet peas and she will not drink anything other than water out of a cup. She can say "momma", "dadda", "hi", "nigh-nigh"(night-night), "up", and "woof". She also has her own language and is constantly having a conversation with herself in it with hand gestures and all.

Happy Birthday my little cupcake!
