Fun With Family

Reid had wonderful company this weekend.  His super fun Uncle Josh and Josh's girlfriend Regina, his Great Uncle Bobby, Great Aunt Lorraine & second cousin, William, all came to Dallas to visit him.  We had a fabulous time together, and we can't wait for them to come visit us again soon.  

We're showing Uncle Josh & Regina how Reid reacts to the "Hot Dog" song.

 Cousin William can always make Reid laugh!
 First round's on Reid!

 Grandma Andersen started a trend.  

 Omelettes all around.  Aunt Lorraine did the cooking, Jeff did the flipping & the rest of us did the feasting.  Perfection!
 Shopping at Target with Uncle Josh
 Wild About Harry's...yum, yum!
 Remember this post?  Here are the two of us again with Scary Hot Dog Man, but this time, Reid's on the outside.  By the way, if you're wondering what the boy's looking's a group of pretty girls getting out of a car right in front of us.  Yes, apparently we've arrived at that stage already!


Guess who came home from school on Friday with a new communication tool?

I imagine Reid is saying, "No, thank you, mom!"  :)

Hot Diggity Dog : The Morning After

Like a kid on Christmas morning, Jeff and I couldn't wait for Reid to wake up, so we could play this game again.  As you can see, he was still in his pajamas when we turned the "Hot Dog" song on this morning.  Also, if you look closely towards the end of the video, you can see the busted lip he got at school yesterday.  Obviously, it didn't phase our little warrior.


Hot Diggity Dog

It's official - Reid has a favorite song. I won't even tell you how many times Jeff and I replayed the Mickey Mouse video last night just to watch his reaction.  It's as if a switch goes off the minute the "Hot Dog" song starts.

Crazy Is As Crazy Does

For the record, I did not make a special trip to Reid's school for this.  I was passing by Dealey earlier today on my way to a 1:00 pm appointment, looked down at my watch, noticed it was 12:15 pm {nap time in room 5!} and made the split second decision to pop in for a {harmless} peek.  The thought of my baby sleeping bars-free on a cot was just too much for me to accept without seeing it with my own eyes.

*Side note: I had to take the flash-free photos from outside the class room window {lest I risk waking a room full of sleeping 1-2 year olds!}. The super imposed image of the crib you see in both photos is actually a reflection from inside the infant room that is behind where I'm standing to take the picture.  There are definitely no cribs in Reid's new room.

See that cute little thing with the green shirt peeking out of the blue astronaut/spaceship nap sack?  That's my sweet, baby boy.  You can also see his light blue lovey laying to the right side of his head.  

Oh and also, for the record, I did not get back in my car, look at the photos I had just taken and get teary-eyed just thinking about him sleeping there so peacefully.


Dear Reid,

Why yes, your mom is crazy!

Stay in the Light.



Elizabeth's 5th Birthday Party

Daddy was nice enough to let Reid attend his friend's birthday party on daddy's birthday. But this wasn't just any friend of Reid's.  It was sweet Elizabeth Kay!
