Our Irish Lass

Monday, May 11, 2009 8 Comments A+ a-



Reagan Jacqueline was meant to be, in so many ways. For those not familiar with the story, Jon and I discovered we were pregnant with Miss Reagan a day after his maternal grandmother, Mary Jacqueline, died. We knew then that if our child was a girl, she would share her middle name with this lovely woman.

Fast forward seven months and Reagan was born two weeks early, only two days before Grandma Jackie's birthday on the 31st. And when it was announced that it was a girl, Reagan Jacqueline it was.

Now Reagan's hair is turning red, and her eyes are staying blue. (Both Devyn's and Hudson's eyes had already begun changing by this point.) It seems that Reagan shares more than just a name with her great-grandmother, they're also sharing genes. For Grandma Jackie was Irish to the core, her own hair red and her eyes blue. And with a maiden name of Mooney, of course the Irish is coming out.

Its a beautiful thing, seeing this come full circle. Our own little Irish lass.

I’m a coffee drinking, book reading, laundry procrastinating, husband and children loving, mess of a woman who believes that chips and salsa can fix anything. We have chickens running around the backyard, a mountain of dishes in the sink, and on any given morning, I have at least 10 school forms that need my signature or initials. It’s a crazy life {I prefer to call it controlled chaos}, but its ours.

What a little beauty! It's amazing how God plans these things. :)

I have always wanted a little redhead, but it's not in our genes...that I know of. :)
