Another spectacular birthday party

Reagan was SO good today. Today was the day of the joint birthday party for her and her brother. I've been holding my breath all week, not knowing how she would be when this day rolled around, and she's been perfect! This morning Chloe and her family came over (Chloe also has mitochondrial disease). They had Easter plans so they couldn't make it later in the day, but it turned out to be a blessing because we got to see them before all of the hustle and bustle started. There was a tiny moment of sensitivity when we were all talking a little too loudly around Reagan, and she was just letting us know by getting vocal and more tense, but she settled down and was even great in the bounce house! Chloe loved the bounce house! So cute! I did have to visit and run because I still had a lot of prep work to do before the party, but our nurse sat in the bounce house so they could spend some more time in there. The party started at 2 and in true party fashion, I was still laying things out when people started showing up. Thankfully I had gotten dressed and put on makeup 30min earlier! The bounce house was also a good distraction. We had a great turn out this year, lots of friends, family, and neighbors which made me very happy! Everyone had a great time! Ryan bounced in the bounce house almost nonstop! The only hiccup was during the happy birthday song, Reagan got over excited and was close to tears by the end (this is a common occurrence), but she recovered quickly and was fine afterward. Tonight Reagan was loving laying on the floor looking up at the lights on the ceiling. It was even prettier in the dark! Thank you so much for keeping my girl in your prayers! It was another wonderful birthday party with an even more wonderful girl!
