Attempt #1....

We decided to try again later!... The chair pictures went from easy to a lot of jumping around and being extremely crazy to get him to sit still and focus!

But... where there is a will... there is a way!
And you guessed it... Reid is now SIX MONTHS OLD. I just cannot handle the rate he is growing. He is already half a year old... but each day he really does get sweeter, cuter, more fun.. and the list goes on.

Reid, oh my goodness we love you SO stinkin much! You have turned into such a little boy this past month. You are way to big for all this baby stuff. You are now officially sitting up. You have also started crawling/scooting whatever you want to call it. The bottom line is you get where you want to be somehow! A couple of weeks ago your first little tooth popped through... and not even 3 days later your second tooth popped through. You continue to sleep through the night like a big boy... but seem to end up in bed with us around 5 (which we love!). You still love your bath, your dogs, and being outside. You continue to be the light of our lives!

Love you to the moon!

No cavities for Reid!

What a big boy! We have got to start good habbits early!

Today Reid learned...

All about our state flower! Well... sorta...
Dad was in charge of taking pictures and I was in charge of 'teaching' him about Bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrushes.
"Ok Reid.... this right here is an Indian Paintbrush...
Now this flower here is blue... it is our state flower... and it is called the Bluebonnet." I was so proud! He was studying SO hard and we have a thousand (rediculous I know!) pictures to prove it. Then... just when I thought he was starting to learn all this new information...
"MOM! This is to much information... Stop!"
"I am done... throwing my hands up... I am only 6 months old and not ready to learn all this."
Just kidding! Our only goal was to get some handsome pictures of Reid in the bluebonnets. He did all that studying on his own. All we did was sit back and snap lots and lots and LOTS of pictures!

Poor guy was a little groggy because he had just fallen asleep in the car... but as always he was such a good sport!

A special thanks to Uncle Landry for telling us where the PERFECT spot was. Lots of beautiful flowers!!

Toy Box

Dear Dad.... Thank you so much for building me my new toy box!I can hardly wait for the next rainy weekend to see what you make me next! I love you! - Reid
P.S. You are the best Daddy in the world!

Here it is... Reid's newest face...Not sure if this means he is confused or if he is just feeling those TWO teeth with his tongue! That is right... he got his second bottom tooth 3 days after his first!... and with only a tiny bit of fussyness. He is SUCH A TROOPER!!!!Man oh man... and there is that face that I know and LOVE!!

Dinner with my girls!

Reid is one lucky man... look at these two sweet girls he got to have dinner with Saturday night! Looks like him and Lily are trying to sneak holding hands... we are watching you two!!!!!!!!

As usual... here is my happy boy! He is the proud owner of 1 bottom tooth!

Happy Easter!

Ok... be prepared for A LOT of pictures! I just couldn't narrow it down... they are all so stinkin cute! We had a GREAT day today! The weather was beautiful and we got to spend a lot of time outside! After a morning at church we came home for a quick nap then headed to Uncle Chuck and Aunt Debbie's for an Easter celebration!

Here is our handsome little guy in his special Easter shirt from Christy! (check out those muscular thighs!)

A picture with his Momma! How lucky am I to call myself Reid's Momma!!!!!

Picture with his oh so handsome Daddy!... and so proud to be sitting on his Daddy's knee!

Now for the fun...! I apparently forgot to get Reid an Easter basket and so I grabbed a Bath and Body Works sack. Lucky for me somebody came to the rescue and let us borrow this cute little blue basket!.... and he found his first egg! Pushing it into the basket with a little help from Mom.

Much more interested in the grass (Patrick was proud.)

So after I got his attention with the purple egg it went straight for the....

you guessed it! mouth!

Ah Ha! Another one right at his level!

Smart guy... reached up and pushed it right into his basket! This one had a little jingle to it also... REAL smart guy! (50 cents!)

Seriously Mom... ANOTHERRRRR picture?!!?!

"I refuse to continue looking at that darn camera...! Don't you know I am busy hunting easter eggs?!"

Starting to get the hang of it!

After lots of hard work... a picture with my Foley cousins!

I think it is safe to say Reid had a great Easter! Got lots of good stuff from the Easter bunny in his basket. We tried to explain the REAL reason for Easter this morning but Reid didn't really get it. Maybe next year! And just in case I haven't said this enough Thank you Jesus for allowing me to be this sweet boy's Momma!!!
