Nonna & Pops got to babysit Reagan this evening while we were at the Rep.  It was the longest we've gone from Reagan -- over 4 hours! --but everyone survived and we think Nonna & Pops really enjoyed it.

Miss Reagan turned a week old today.  Time does pass quickly.  She had another restful last night -- breaking a record -- 6 1/2 hours of sleep before waking up 6:30 this morning.  We visited her pediatrician, Dr. Martin, this morning for a quick checkup.  She weighed in at 7 pounds and got a healthy report from the doctor. Next, we stopped by Lynda & Charlie Pruitt's for a quick visit and then home for restful afternoon. We took it pretty easy this night as well.

We're batting 4 for 4 on our good nights rest - Reagan slept for five hours before waking up on her own at 4:30 this morning to be fed.  Later that morning, it was sponge bath time.  Reagan enjoyed the warm water before getting dressed for church.  We made it to church where Nonna kept Reagan while we went to big church.  A few visitors stopped by Tom's office to take a peek at Reagan.  After lunch at Nonna & Pops, we made it home for a quick visit with Brad and Jenna and then a Sunday afternoon nap.  We made it back for Sunday night church where Reagan attended big church with us.  Then it was time to come home again.

The third night was another good one -- Reagan got the majority of her sleep from 11:30 until 4:30 when we woke her up to feed. She went right back to sleep before waking back up at 7:30.  She entertained a little company mid afternoon, took another stroller ride up the street before taking an afternoon nap. She made her first trip to Nonna & Pops tonight for supper and quick visit. We made a brief visit to our Sunday School class fellowship at the Goudy's before heading home to watch the Hogs take on the University of Southern California. Of course, Reagan had her Razorback outfit on and did her best to cheer on the Hogs.

We had a lazy day around the house today.  We survived our first night without any major issues.  Reagan went to bed around 11:00 night last night, awoke at 1:15 when Tara changed her diaper, 3:00 when I fed her, 4:45 for a diaper change and then 7:30 for breakfast.  We were able to sleep in between and felt rested when we got up at 7:30.  We ended up having to wake her up at 11:30 to eat and then Nonna and Pops stopped by with lunch. Later Beebee and Papaw stopped to check on us as well. We all managed to sneak in a nap (including Pops) during the afternoon along with a quick photo shoot!

Thirty-eight hours after being born, Reagan Marie was heading home to Gamble Road. Earlier in the morning, the pediatrician and Tara's doctor stopped by for their final checkup before releasing us.  We arrived home to find a huge stork in the yard and a pretty pink 'Welcome Home' banner.  We got settled in and unpacked.  Reagan did great throughout the day and seems to be feeling at home. She's already met her two dogs, Bailey & Belle, as well!

We've had another fun day with Reagan. We got checked into our regular room around 1:00 in the morning and she went to the nursery and Tara & I got some sleep. The nurses brought her back to the room around 8:30 where we had a full day of entertaining guests, feeding, and changing diapers (yes, I changed my first diaper today!).  Reagan and Tara are doing great.  Tara is getting around good and has walked the hall a few times and been sitting up most of the day. Tara's doctor and a pediatrician visited and gave good reports. The plan is for us to go home sometime tomorrow morning.
