13 Months & Check-up

Well, Reid you turn 13 months old today! We had your one year check-up yesterday...we had to reschedule your original check-up appointment because Mommy thought the 30th fell on a Tuesday when in fact it fell on a Monday...so we missed it and this was as soon as they could "work us in". You weighed in at 24 lbs 8.5 ounces (75th percentile) and measured 30.63 inches long (75th percentile). According to the dr., you looked "PERFECT". I couldn't agree more! She also noted that you were a very smart boy! She is right! You are saying all kinds of words including, "nack" (snack), "nigh, nigh" (night night), "no", "fis" (fish), "mommee", "daddeeee", "all done" (you say it differently but I can't figure out how to type it out), and more! We know you are learning all of these words from your sister because you say them EXACTLY like she does...same pitch and intonation....it cracks us up. You also love playing patty cake! You clap and LOVE rolling it up!
You have also started dancing during "dancy dance" time, too. Your personality is really starting to come out and you are funny! You love to play games and smile and laugh. You think it is hilarious to move your arm like cat scratching and say "meow"...you think it is funny when Daddy and Mommy do this too. You also love us to shake hands with you and give us high-fives!
You are a teething machine. You are working on tooth #15 and tooth #16 right now. You are such an easy teether.
When I picked you up from the nursery this morning after bible study, the ladies taking care of you said, "He has such a sweet smile"...I also hear constantly how "contagious" your smile is...so true! That shouldn't come as a surprise to you if you have read any of my previous "months" post of you. (c:
Just like in this picture, you are SOOOOO laid back. You are just content to be here!! I love that about you (not just because it makes my life easier)...I think it is such a rare quality to just naturally be content. I hope you stay that way and always realize that God has provided you everything you need for your current happiness!!! (Oh, and you LOOOOVVEE your Cozy Coupe car..if you are outside, you are always sitting in it--and falling through it.)
You still love your "papi" (pacifier). You love to throw everything. You make the biggest mess when you eat--you can ALWAYS tell where you sat! You love sitting forward-facing in the van and are mesmerized by the DVD player. In fact, you get in a "zone" and I start to worry because you don't move...you just stare and stay perfectly still. Haha.
You love phones. You say "hi" and then walk around babbling. At the dr. yesterday, she said, "he is a chatty little guy!" Haha. If she only knew your sister and your Mommy, she would know that you kind of have to be!
You are so handsome and cuddly! God knew how to melt Mommy's heart when he made you!! You do it perfectly each and every day just being sweet little Reidster Speedster! Which you really have become quite speedy and determined!
You love your rocking chair that Grandma Betty got you for Christmas. You love to sit in it and you love to stand in it! We are always telling you to "sit down" when you stand up in your chair--you smile and laugh and then we will come and sit you down and clap and say "Yay Bubby, you are sitting!" So now when you are standing and we tell you to sit down, you will sit down and clap for yourself. Haha. Too cute! We just love you and take so much joy in watching you grow and develop! Can't wait to see what you will be up to this month. (c; Love, Mommy, Daddy, and Lilly

I am so glad Reid is doing well. He is not only so smart, and healthy, but a cutie too!

I am not sure there is an Army post near you all. Probably the closet is Texas?? You talk to the big Army about that for me and we will be right over. lol

Your so sweet!! Have a great day!
