Reed loves to talk to Daddy on the phone. He has started calling every phone "Dada!!" and always fights for his opportunity to chat.
Taking an important call during his commute to the living room.
Reed can identify eyes, nose, mouth, ears, cheeks, belly, feet (piggies), legs, arms, and back. He can tell you the sounds that pigs, cows, monkeys, horses (sometimes), cars, and lambs make.
Reed loves our car. Every time he sees it--outside our house, in a parking lot, etc.--he says "our car! our car!" Sadly, he does not love riding in our car.
Being silly at snack time. He loves to have his snacks in cups that he can dump out.
Reed loves his reflection. When he sees himself in the mirror, he says, "baby, baby" and usually gives himself kisses.
When Reed sees a puddle of water or a plastic meter cover thing on the ground, he has to do "happy feet" on it. He runs over to it and takes really quick steps in place. He also does this any time he changes surfaces he is walking across (i.e. going from carpet to tile) and when he is super pumped.
We went outside to play and when we came inside and took off his hat, I found this surprise underneath.
Reed loves to pray. At every meal he folds his arms and says "Pray!! Pray!!" as soon as we sit down. He also requests prayers at bedtime, at naptime, at church, throughout every meal, and at various other times in the day.
Reed has been learning to string simple phrases together (i.e. want mama, get me, etc.) My two favorites are "Oh no!" and "Oh yeah!" My favorite word he says is "alright!" because he generally employs it when he is super pumped to do something and uses great vocal inflection.
When Reed finds a blankie or pillow, he says "night night!" and lays down.
You know that Usher song "Yeah!"? If you don't, google "Yeah song" and you can play a clip. Anyway, Uncle Nick taught Reed to say "yea-ah" (like the song)...so I started singing the opening music followed by "yeah"--and now Reed does the same thing.
Reed has 12 teeth and is working on at least 2 more. Joy.
