Spencer's 1st Birthday Party!!!

I will have to say today was a fun filled day for Reed!!! We met my sister for lunch, went shopping for Easter outfits, came home to take a little nap, and went to a fun birthday party for little miss Spencer who turned 1!!! Reed had a blast!!! I don't think he ever sat down from about 5:00-7:00! He was BUSY! I am exhausted now!Amber did a wonderful job with the birdie decorations! The birthday cake was adorable too;) My hubby was taking pictures with his new camera and kind of forgot to get a pic of Spencer eating her birthday cake! Amber's sister made a beautiful banner too that he did not get a picture of either! Oh, well....he did get some great pics! To sum it up.......Today was a great day!;)

Bathtime Bubbles

We just started blowing bubbles during bathtime and Reed LOVES it!!! I am trying to teach him to say "Bubbles" but he hasn't got it yet? Daddy got a new camera and was trying it out all day today! I thought he got some really good pics!

Grilled Cheese Play Date

Reed and Isabella had a play date on Thursday since Lindsay had to work. She brought all of us lunch from Sonic! Reed looooves the grilled cheese from there! I just don't think I could ever master Sonic's grilled cheese if I wanted know?? It doesn't get much better than that! Isabella asked me if she could play with Reed for just a "wittle bit PLEASE...JJ??" She usually takes a nap after lunch so she wanted to make sure they could play. I let them play for a while and then they were both down for a nap.....Ahhhhhh....that was nice!!!

Reed's Artwork

When I picked Reed up from daycare today he painted a pretty shamrock for mommy and daddy! It made my day:) I am looking forward to many more pieces of artwork my little man makes in the future!

All BOY!!

I will have to say my little man is for sure.....all boy!! He likes to play rough, be loud, and push little girls around. Yes, I know I feel so sorry for all those little girls at his day care. He has gotten in trouble for being.... as the daycares call it...." A little rough with the girls." He also likes to bite. What am I going to do about this??? I tell him no when he does it to me or daddy at home. I also try to redirect him to something else or put a pacy in his mouth. Sometimes when I say "NO NO Reed", he just looks at me and smiles and thinks it is funny. Other times he starts crying. I am at a lost. It seems like every week I have to sign incident reports at daycare for his rough behavior. If any of you moms out there have any good advice on this, please let me know!!! I love my little man and really feel like he is actually sometimes trying to love when he bites. We just need to let him know this is not okay behavior.

Playing at the Park

Today was a beautiful day to play at the park! Reed has been a little under the weather last night and this morning with a stomach we just had to get out and enjoy the sunshine!!!! He was soooooo happy at the park! He thinks he is about 2 yrs old....the boy is fearless! He will climb to the top of this really big slide and turn around backwards and slide down! He is all smiles all the way to the bottom!! It is so cute to watch, but I will have to admit it makes me a little nervous. I just love to see my little man have a good time and be happy! There is no greater joy for me than that:)

Up to Something??

I was unloading the dishwasher the other morning while Reed was watching Barney in his bedroom. I decided to go check on him because he was being really quiet.......This is what I found....

"Ooops, I am in trouble now!"

"Oh, well, she won't be mad for long!"

"I think I have about got this back together"

"One more thing and I will be done"

" Barney Break"

"Daddy, can you come help me??"

Reed's First Haircut!

I took Reed for his very first haircut about a week ago. It was turning into a mullet in the back for sure and it drove me CRAZY!!! I have always heard it is really hard for moms to cut their babies hair.....well, I was REALLY ready! I will have to admit when she started cutting I got a little sad, but it turned out so cute! Now my little baby looks so much like a little boy! Claire gave him a comb to chew on and he was actually pretty good;) Claire did such a great job!
