Our big [little] boy

I can't get over how much Reed has changed in the past month. Beginning to eat solids, sitting up, scooting and gaining so much personality. It seems like there is something new everyday. And I want to write about them all so I won't forget them. Having a child is the single most wonderful thing I've ever done. Yes, there's the not so cherishable moments. The crying at 1:30 am, and then again at 1:45, 2:30, 3:00 and so on. There's the dirty diapers that make you gag and open the windows all while trying to keep his hands and feet out of it. But these things fade in comparison to the other things. And are so worth it.

Yesterday when Michael got home, Reed was especially playful. I was cleaning the bedroom so he was laying on the bed. I took one of the pillows and playfully "hit" him with it. He laughed. And laughed. I continued to tap him with the pillow, and he giggled and giggled. It was so much fun! He really got laughing more than he has before. I wish I'd caught it on video to share. Maybe next time. Here are a few photos of our big little boy. I couldn't decide which one I liked best, so you're getting all three.


Thanks for visiting.
