I'm 17 months old!

Reed had a great time visiting with Nana last weekend! He started to get sick Sunday, so even though he had a slight fever and runny nose we could tell he still really enjoyed her being here!
Trying on Daddy's boggin!
Lately Reed is loving his little chair he got for his birthday. He likes to sit in it with books!

Reed had a blast with his Gigi this past weekend! While Daddy went on a men's trip to Chicago she came to stay with us--and he was so excited to see her arrive, just giggling and laughing as she walked in the door.

I know we haven't posted in awhile; well, we finally got our new camera! And we've been trying to figure out how to use it and then today finally downloaded the pictures onto the computer. Whoooo! It is a high tech thing, but seems to be taking some wonderful pictures of our little guy! We've also had lots of vistors; most of our family hasn't seen Reed since Christmas. So needless to say, he's had lots of fun and playmates! But it's been cute to watch him with Nana and Gigi.
Lately, we've been talking about the baby to him, not that he probably understands completely. And he will lift up my shirt and say "baby"--though I'm not for sure he really knows there is a baby, but it is cute to watch!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Today I went to my friend, Addison's house. She was my valentine date! We played and made cookies and a surprise for our daddies.

As you can see I loved the cookies!!!!!

Funny Sayings of Reed

My friend Deacon came over to play last week, as you can see we had some fun together!

In this picture we are pointing to our body parts--me to my nose, and Deacon is pointing to his eyes!
One of my favorite things to do is sit with Daddy in his office---I run in there when I hear his music playing. My favorite is anything by Mac Powell (from Third Day). We just sit and snuggle together and sing to Jesus.

Well, we haven't posted in awhile---but thought I'd share some funny new things Reed is doing lately. Recently, after working on it on and off since he was 8 months old, he is signing for 'more' all the time now! He really uses it without prompting too--so that is cute to see. The other day we tried 'please' (which he will actually imitate the word "piz") but numerous times instead of rubbing the palm of his hand on his chest (which is how you do that sign) he rubs anything other than himself! He rubbed the floor, the couch, his tray---it is too cute! We just couldn't stop laughing after he did it the first few times. He also is using the word "eat" and "bite" every time he sees food! The boy loves to eat! Especially anything sweet---cookies (which he makes a real distinct and hard 'k' sound as he says /kuke/. Apparently, my sugar tooth is rubbing off on him--yikes!
