We had a wonderful Christmas in Fairhope with Nick's family. Although it was not without drama. Nick ran a fever of almost 103 two of the nights we were there and Reed has his first big cold. (Which is now an ear infection.) Although he was sick Reed was in a fairly good mood, and took lots of great pictures. Santa brought him all kinds of fun stuff and so did Grandpa, Grammy , Aunt Sandy and Uncle Josh. He is sooooo very rotten. It took 3 different sittings to get through Reed's gifts due to a bit of fussy baby. Enjoy the pictures. Thanks again Nick and Joan for a great Christmas.Reed and his Grandpa

Nick and I had a blast the last night decorating our Gingerbread house. Nick made the Gingerbread from scratch (of course). Then used a Bob Villa floor plan to build it. Then we both went to town decorating it. Here are the great pictures of our masterpiece. Notice the cute little Gingerbread Family. I think their names our Nick, Katie & Reed.
OMG Do you see the messy kitchen????

Today Reed is 5 months old! Can you believe it? I can not. Reed is weighed 15 lbs. on Monday. He has starting eating Sweet Potatoes, Squash, Apples, and Cereal this past month. And he loves it all. Reed has lots of other exciting things happen this month...Went to Washington DC (Something Mommy never did until she was 30.)
Rolled from back to front.
Flew on an airplane.
Had his first Thanksgiving.
Meet a new friend...Josslyn.
Started jogging with Daddy in the jogging stroller.
Played with old friends...Rheagan.
Continued to love books, and learned to turn the pages. Yes he is the child of a kindergarten teacher.
Learned that Mommy is nuts about the holidays.
Started petting and talking to his doggie brothers and sister. So cute!
Had his first Christmas tree. Which brought Mommy to tears!
Finally growing some hair!
Visited Santa and told him about all the goodies he wants, because he has been such a good boy.
