|The boys have been loving books on CD from the library.|
Reed loves school. I think the biggest improvement I've seen is his handwriting. He's starting to write the letters really clearly, even when he's not tracing. His teacher has also started addition problems with him, which he loves. And at home, we've been trying out some subtraction, which he thinks is pretty cool, too!
|For whatever reason, Reed decided to wear the back scratcher like this. For a few hours.|
I can't remember exactly what happened, but Asher had something and someone took it away, so Asher started crying. Reed said, "Seems like Asher wants it" in the most sarcastic voice. As I type this it doesn't seem that funny but Ryan and were both cracking up when it happened--you'll have to trust me.

Reed is so good with Asher and Lila. For the most part, he plays really well with them--and he always looks out for them. He really likes being the oldest, especially because it means he is the biggest. He likes that he can teach Asher to do things, too, since Reed already knows how to do them.
When something goes wrong Reed says, "Aww nuggets!" To my knowledge, this phrase doesn't come from a TV show or anything--just the mind of Reed.
Asher has been really nervous at night lately, so we've been saying a special prayer together at bedtime, which Reed is in attendance for. One morning I came downstairs and Asher told me, "I got nervous, so Bubba prayed for me." SO CUTE.
We were playing with a school game when Reed asked me, "Why does this look like church clothes?" I was so confused until I realized that the paper had an argyle pattern on it, and the only other experience he has with argyle is on the front of various sweaters/vests he or Asher have worn to church.
When Reed does quiet time, I'm often downstairs enjoying a little quiet. He told me one day that he comes down and peeks at me during his quiet time, then sneaks back upstairs! He's so silly.
This is probably weird, but when we think something is weird we often say, "Weee-ird" in kind of a sing-song voice. Anyway, one day Reed saw a kids climbing crazily at the park and said, "That's not safe. Weeeee-ird."
|This is his band uniform. Those shorts? From the pirate costume he wore two years ago.|
|There is nothing I love more than watching Reed during a dance party.|
One day Reed asked if he could play the iPad, but I told him no. He responded, "Yeah, I've been playing game thing, so I guess I've had a lot of screen time."
