...it's a little different from space dad, but it's more high pitched and kind of breathier than his normal voice. I will have to try to catch it on video some time because I am obviously not doing a great job of describing the voice! Today, I asked him about his funny voice. He got a little embarrassed and said something like, "It's just like, you know, funny."
We got a calendar in the mail and the picture for January was a snowy scene. Reed asked, "Why is snow on the January calendar?!" We're from Vegas.
Reed loves this vest.
The boys were playing when I heard Reed yell, "Everyone run! Every man for himself!"
Reed has really become a great little bike rider. I love to watch him stand up and pedal and to make up and try out new tricks. He can easily keep up with Ryan or I and often goes ahead with one of us, then loops back to meet up with the littler kids. He loves going off-roading in the desert (Asher does not) and he is very adventurous on his bike. I recently realized that I didn't love how our afternoons were going--we'd pick Reed up, come home and do homework, then they'd watch a show while I made dinner. After that, we'd eat, clean up, get ready for bed, and go into our bedtime routine. After homework or dinner prep, we'd sometimes have extra time, but it was too dark to play outside. So we've started playing outside as soon as we get home from picking Reed up. The change has been fantastic! I love that we get some outside time to get some energy out and Reed (and Ash and Lila) have loved getting daily bike time. Dinner is a little later, but that hasn't proven to be an issue.
We've recently started having the boys each read a few verses of scripture as part of our family scripture study. I've been really impressed by how well Reed is reading! The scriptures have a lot of tricky words and he gets a lot of those tricky words right. His comprehension while we read to him has also impressed me. I love that he's getting familiar with the language of the scriptures.
...then she talked him into giving her a ride, too!
Grandma gave Reed this funny Obi Wan Pen-obi (haha, I'm funny).
