Reed is full of energy these days. He’s growing, changing, and still being Reed.
His favorite food is still pizza, all day, every day. ha! That boy would keep a pizzeria in business solely. We do occasionally get him to eat other food – especially if we liken it to pizza. One night he said lasagna was yucky and we told him it was just like pizza and he ate it all up and leftovers the next day!
He has adjusted to his new teacher at school pretty well. She’s quickly become attached to him and his classmates and she really seems to make learning fun for them. I’m thankful to have someone who just loves them and cares for them. It has helped with the transition for sure!
Reed’s best friend at school is Maggie. Those two love each other greatly. They play and talk and come up with all kinds of stuff between the two of them. One of the teachers sent me this photo one day after lunch.
This past week, Maggie also very generously gave Reed her Skye puppy (from Paw Patrol). He came home one day saying Maggie had let him bring her home because he only had boy puppies and not girl puppies. The next morning, we made sure Skye had a good breakfast of “dog food” before going back to Maggie.
When he took her back, Maggie was insistent that Reed keep Skye. Such a sweet girl. Reed has loved having Skye live with us. She went to church this past weekend. He is funny with his slew of pups. He makes them bite or lick people by saying “bite” or “lick”. We’ve also had some puppy potty accidents on the floor. ;) Love his imagination!
He brought me a basket of laundry the other night after I asked him to and instead of pushing it over to me, he picked it up and carried it over to me. Zach said to him, “Wow, Reed. You are strong! Where did you get those muscles?” He replied “From Jesus!!!!”
Reed is picking up lots of new stuff these days, too. He’s also being a typical little brother in so many ways – loves tattling, loves “helping” when Ava’s getting disciplined, antagonizing Ava! I’ll be curious to see how he transitions to his role of BIG brother in about three months!
