The "Ida Bear"

The picture below is Reagan with her "Ida Bear." Ida, (pronounced ee-DUH) was an Au Pair in the US a few years ago. We got to know her really well as she was good friends with our Au Pair at the time. Ida gave Reagan the bear for Christams when Reagan was just seven months old. It came from Sweden where Ida is from and lives today. Reagan loves this bear. She sleeps with it, and carries it around everywhere. We've been fortunate enough to keep in touch with Ida and she reads this blog regularly. Maybe one day Reagan will get to meet Ida once again and thank her for the bear in person.



Here is Reagan with her Ida bear when she was nine months old




And here is Ida, the beautiful, sweet girl of the namesake bear


Ida and Reagan when Reagan was seven months old.




And here are just some other random pictures I've taken over the past week.

Ooops, sorry. I accidentally messed my comment up...

I love the outfits you put your girls in. They are so cute. I agree that Reagan looks adorable in that first outfit! That is also really neat that Reagan has a far away friend that gave her such a special gift!

So cute, so sweet! I love the random playing photos. The candids like that are always the best at showing personality, you know?

Awww, what gorgeous, sweet little girls. I love that she hangs on to that bear. I'm sure it will be something she cherishes when she gets older.
