CELEBRATING FOUR YEARS OF REID

Four years ago today, February 19, 2007, our little Turbo was born. He entered this world at 12:10 p.m. weighing 7 lb. 9 oz. and was 20 in. long. The births of all of my children were sweet, sweet days, but his was especially sweet not only because we knew he would be the last but because there were times during my pregnancy we weren't sure we would ever see his sweet face.








But God had other plans. And boy am I glad HE did. 

A little about Reid:

He's my meat and potatoes little man, just like his daddy. He likes steak (ribeye or fillet) pork, chicken, deer meat, pretty much anything his daddy grills. He loves potatoes in just about any form and loves, loves, loves Mrs. Hazel's Kiddie Kollege rice and mac and cheese. He loves hotdogs, yogurt, pigs in a blanket, applesauce, and could eat pizza for every meal. He's not much on sweets or candy but loves my "hot gum" and pink bubble gum. 

He's my little sidekick - literally - he's on my hip more than he's on his own two feet. Sometimes it's what drives me crazy about him. Sometimes it's what melts my heart because I know he won't be like this forever. He tells me he loves me a few times a day, and every time I leave him somewhere (whether it's preschool or at Mimi's) he gives me no less than 10 kisses. 

He loves his blankie, Justin Bieber, rap music (he can't hear any type music without dancing to it) being outside, helping me in the kitchen or around the house, taking a bath, and could watch Despicable Me over and over and over again. He's hilarious, strong-willed, and so far has proven to be a bit accident prone - stitches to the head/a bat to the mouth. He has a wild imagination. He can carry on a conversation with me for quite some time talking about absolutely nothing that makes sense. :) He makes me laugh every single day. 

His little life was unexpected and as I said, the pregnancy was rocky, but look at him now. He blesses our family each and every day.
