Happy 10 Months Sweet Boy!

Reed is 10 months old now! I can't believe it. I know I say it every time, and probably will continue to in the future, but I just can't believe how fast he's growing. We've had a really busy month. Selling our old house, buying a new one (closing this Thursday). Planning all the remodels. And Reed has been a trooper through it all.

We've had a few major milestones. The first one, we'll introduce in a short clip:

What fun times! He loved to chase his monkey (one that his Grumpy and Gramma bought him before he was born, one that is really his favorite) around. It was some serious motivation. A week ago he would take a few steps if we coaxed him on. Today, it's all he wants to do. I'm sure by next week he'll be running around like he's been doing it forever. Way to go, little man!

Our second milestone was staying in the church nursery two weeks in a row, getting good reports both times. I must admit, the first Sunday I didn't hear a word the preacher said. All I wanted to do was peak in and make sure he was okay. Make sure he wasn't crying for his Mommy. But I resisted, and sat impatiently watching the clock for the minute church would be over. When we went to get him, he was just fine. Hadn't cried. Was sitting with one of the nursery workers smiling and gobbling up his Cheerios - which I'm sure he dug in my bag to find and handed to her to get them out. And today, he did great again. And today, I actually listened to the sermon.

Reed is also eating table food like crazy now. He loves spaghetti, roast, potatoes and carrots. And beans. His crazy Granna and Papa T fed him beans for lunch today, because, "He just wouldn't eat his baby food." Although it's true - he'd rather eat what we are eating - they sure did cause a stinky day!

Finally, Reed has discovered the piano. And loves it. And realized the other day that he can reach it without our help.

Can't wait to see what the coming month brings!

Ah Reed! You are so cute I can't stand it. Please wear that cute blond hair in a mohawk more often.

He does not play around when he is walking. He sure is speedy. How fun! Once again, my how your life is going to change. Just a reminder that I can't take these last few days of immobility for granted.

Ada says she loves the "Reedhawk"!
