Today Reid would tell you.... "I five!" if you asked him.
Actually we were at the park today with some friends and I told Reid to tell the girls what today was..... I was not sure how he would respond to be honest, but he looked up at them, smiled, and said, "I five!!". When they said Happy Birthday Reid, he responded with a most adorable, "Fanks!!" with again that little smirk on his face.
If Reid had more words about him he would also say....
"I have the best big brother, EVER!"
"Daddy is my hero!"
"Follow your dreams, there isn't anything you can't accomplish if you put your mind and heart in it!"
"If you have the opportunity to sit out or dance.... DANCE!!"
"Tell someone that you love them.... To Infinity and Beyond!!"
"Laughter is good for the soul!"
"Rudolph isn't the only cute reindeer!"
"Mind your manners and don't forget to say, "Thank you... thank you very much" from time to time!"
"Hug close the ones you love!"
"If you want to hang out in only rain boots and underwear all day... so be it! Blaze your own trail!"
"Five is going to be my best year yet!"

I am blessed to be married to an incredibly loving and kindhearted man, Toby, and I am a mom to 2 boys...I am in the chapter of my life that involves baseball games, homework, playdates, diapers, and dump trucks. It is simply the best! With every part of my being I love being "Mom" and have learned the depth at which my heart can go when our youngest son was born with Down syndrome. This blog was created to connect with other families on this same journey that an extra 21st chromosome presents. Join me as I journal about Down syndrome, life, and raising Reid and his big brother Luke.
