It's Reid's turn. He went in for his two year old pictures a few weeks ago. That was a disaster. Fit after fit after fit. These were the best I got. He somehow got out of the car with his toy trains. He wouldn't give them up for the pictures. The full body shot includes the trains in his pockets. These are the ONLY TWO pictures that didn't have trains in them. And the head shot is only by default....you can bet the trains are in his hands. He refused to wear shoes and insisted on keeping his holey socks on. I was fighting so many other things, that was the least of my worries. He wouldn't pose or smile or anything. I worked up a full on sweat for these two pictures. Stinker.
My purpose for this post certainly isn't to complain. Besides a six month picture, I only get pictures of the crazies on their birthdays. What a great time to record how fantastic my kids are.
Reid has an incredible music sense. From the time he was old enough to bounce his little body, he's been able to do it on beat. He loves music. He loves to sing. He can identify instruments when we're listening to the radio. His favorite songs currently include: Hospital Bed, I Dig Rock and Roll Music, Jesus Wants Me For A Sunbeam (who doesn't love that one?), I am a Child of God, and anything by the Wiggles. If he hears a song he knows, you can bet he's singing. He can always recognize music. If he's watching a new movie he can tell us where he's heard those songs before...like on Daddy's iPod. He knows which songs everyone in the family likes. We'll be listening and he'll say...."Mommy's favorite!" And get really excited. I love hearing him sing. And I love watching his adorable little body bounce to the music. He does it where ever there is music...in the car, in the store, on a movie, where ever. Love it.
He is really good at remembering to say 'Thank You'...without being prompted.
He's currently wearing a wig and is insisting I call him "Fun Shine Bear." Gotta love that.
Reid loves his brothers. He will follow Parker and repeat his every move. He is very loving towards Gray.
He is a momma's boy. Big time. Reid gives great hugs...but mainly just to me.
Reid seems to be a very right-brained kid. Very creative. He could color for hours.
He always eats his whole cheeseburger when we go out to eat. Money well spent.
Reid is fearless. From the time he could jump, he's never been afraid to jump off anything.
Reid is a free spirit. He's easy going and easy to love. He almost always lets Parker choose what movie to watch, book to read or game to play without throwing a fit. He let's Parker choose first when choosing which ball to play with, bowl to eat out of or which Popsicle each of them get.
He's a great sleeper.
He looks adorable in hats...and will keep them on when we go out.
Lately, Reid has made quite an effort to be helpful. Especially with Gray.
Reid has crazy-great morning hair. Don't know where he gets that;)
He has a great laugh. He's such a happy kid.
I love Reid. We get along great. I'm so glad I have him here to love.
