Happy Birthday Victoria!

Well, one week removed from Reed's first birthday was Victoria's 3rd birthday on March 14. Our little girl is growing so fast. We had a wonderful magical princess party for Princess Victoria. A few friends from Richard's program and church came over to help us celebrate Victoria's special day. All the girls were so cute in their princess dresses. The two main highlights of the party were the pinata and the Belle birthday cake. Victoria was so proud and happy of her Belle cake that she didn't really want to eat it! We have been so blessed to have Victoria and Reed and are very excited to make them so happy during special days like these. Happy Birthday Victoia!

Happy Birthday Reed!!

Reed turned one today and I don't believe how fast the time has flown. It seems like just yesterday we were bringing home in San Antonio and now he is turning one in Connecticut. Where does the time go?!
He sure is a joy! He is such a sweetheart. He has such an easy smile. If he catches your eye he just beams. I just can't imagine our life without or sweet Reedie pie.

Watch out for your toes!

Reed is dangerous! I have found that your toes are never really safe with Reed around. It has happened a couple of times now, Reed biting my toes! He does it when you least expect it; sitting on the couch working on the computer, reading books with Victoria on her bed, sitting on a chair at the table. There really is no safe place. I thought placing my feet firmly on the ground wouldn't entice him, but the next thing I know he is on his belly gnawing like a puppy! He thinks it is pretty funny. He hasn't really gotten a good bit off yet, but he thinks it is hilarious when you yank your foot away and shriek.
He is really getting to be so much fun. He crawls around and gets crazy when Richard and Victoria race down the hall. When they turn around and run back toward him he sits on his knees, hands clasped and swings them back and forth fast in front of him. It is so funny!
He is pretty smart. He knows where I am at all moments. I can't even escape to the bathroom without him pushing the door open! As many of you Moms know! Your privacy is gone!
I love my sweet Reed! He is almost a year old and I can't believe how fast he has grown! He is such a joy! I will post some then and now pictures in the next few days!
