14 Memorable Months

The Reid Report:
  • No more bottle!  He was down to only one bottle with milk right before bed time, but now he only drinks from a sippy cup.  He's also learning to drink from a real cup (dixie cup) at school.
  • Walking, running, climbing everywhere!  To the detriment of his mother, the boy loves to climb!
  • We typically start our bedtime routine around 7:00pm which puts him to bed by 7:30pm.  For the past week, he has consistently slept past 7:00am. He usually wakes up closer to 7:30am now.  With all the activity in his toddler room and only one nap {at school} during the day, he needs all the sleep he can get at night.
  • With the help of the school nap schedule, he's transitioning to one long nap per day at home as well (typically between 11:30 - 2:00ish)
  • The boy hates to have his diaper changed.  Jeff and I are becoming masters at the art of distraction.
  • He's learned to nod his head "yes," but of course he doesn't do this as often as he shakes his head "no."  
  • He's discovered a love for the outdoors and the grass.  All of sudden, he likes walking around in the grass now.
  • He also loves to stand at the window (front or back) to watch his daddy work outside in the yard.
  • Favorite foods:  blueberries, tomatoes, watermelon, meatballs
  • Vocabulary:  
    • Hi (accompanied by a wave...sometimes a two-handed wave)
    • Du-du (duck)
    • Tee-tee (teeth)
    • Ha-ee (Halley)
    • Dada or daddy
    • Mama
    • Nanna (banana)
    • No
  • Still only has 8 teeth, but he's showing all signs of teething.  We expect to have some new teeth "eruptions" soon!  Molars, please be nice to us!
  • If you catch him in the right mood, he'll run to your open arms and give you a BIG hug (we're still working on the kisses).!
  • He loves to look at pictures and videos on computers and iphones.
  • Last but not least, our little boy is becoming a HAM for the camera.  I think we've created a monster!

All grown up and cute as ever. Such a big boy with no more bottles. Is potty training next? Good Luck mom and dad, I'm sure Reid with do well, when the time is right. He may only have 8 teeth, but they sure do make a beautiful, oops Handsome smile. Can't wait to get one of those open arm hugs. Hugs and Kisses.
