The Celebration Continues

On the day after Christmas, we all met at Aunt Jenn's to visit with Big Bobby & Jo. They gave Gabriel a cool remote control car for Christmas, and we quickly found out that Reid loves watching fast cars cruise around the room.  He kicked and laughed the whole time the adults were learning to use the remote.

 We uncovered the secret to nap time success...especially at loud restaurants.  Jeff, my mom, Jenn, Andrew, Reid & I went to lunch at Water Street after our visit with Big Bobby & Jo.  We discovered that as long as Reid's eyes are covered {see below}, he will sleep like a baby.  Reid and Andrew both slept for two hours while the big people enjoyed a leisurely lunch together.  Afterward, mom took Grandpa Gary one of his favorite foods for lunch - shrimp po' boy.
The weekend we discovered that Reid had hand, foot and mouth disease, we had just given him his first taste of organic puffs from Central Market.  Needless to say our first thought {mom's fear} when we saw the rash was that he was allergic to one of the ingredients in the puffs.  Ugh!  Fortunately, less than 24 hours later the pediatrician confirmed that it was HFMD.  Thank goodness the boy's not allergic to puffs.  In just two weeks he has fine-tuned the art of picking them up and putting them in his mouth.   There's another "trick" he's learned recently.  Video TBP (to be posted) soon.
