42: Dear Reid, One year ago, May 5, 2010 at 9:19 am you became our first born, 7 lbs 1 oz, 20 1/2 inches long and perfect in every way! It does not even seem possible that it has been a year! Time just flew by. At First, we had to have the same schedule, I slept when you slept. About the time I had to go back to work, we just got things figured out. You started sleeping through the night and now you are sleeping between 10-12 hours a night! You just knew your mommy loves her sleep!! After several trips to the chiropractor (Thanks to Toby and Shelia) we got your back and stomach aligned! In the first 12 months, you went from being totally helpless with just crying out to let us know what you wanted to lifting your head up to rolling all over the place to sitting and crawling and babbling and almost running all around. Everything is new and interesting to you and you must try everything by mouth! You got so many gifts for your birthday and all you wanted to play with were the cards. Now you are getting into all the cabinets and emptying them out a thousand times a day! Your sweet little personality comes out everyday. It is just awesome watching you grow into the little man that you are one day going to become. They always said you learn more in the first 2 years of life then you ever will! It sure is true and I believe I am right with you. I want you to know that your daddy and I will always be here for you and we will do our best to provide you with a nurturing environment so that you will grow up strong and independent! I cannot wait to see how you grow and change in the next 12 months. I love you! Mommy
43: Dear Reid, You have been such a blessing to so many people especially your mommy and daddy. They say laughter is the key to a happy life, so far your first year of life you have provided us enough laughter for a lifetime. From your silly expressions, jibber jabber, sniffles, to your fake cries. I can't wait to see what you come up with next. There are so many things I can't wait to teach you. Your mommy and I will do everything we can to keep you safe and well rounded. Always remember you will be loved unconditionally no matter what! I love you Daddy
