Happy Birthday, my sweet...

Tomorrow (11-3) it's baby will be turning 2. In some ways, it seems like Reid has been here as long as Ellie has. It truly does. It's hard to remember a time when Brian and I didn't have kids. And it's hard to remember a time when it was just the 3 of us. It just seems that Reid has been with us all along. But at the same time, 2 years??? My little one that has been down quite a long road is already 2??? Amazing.

I am blessed by Reid's strength, courage, and absolute orneriness. I am lucky to have the chance to be his mom. I don't know if we are heading into the "terrible 2's" because I feel we have been there for about 8 months!!!!! I am hoping that God will grant us a beautiful year together, and that those so called "terrible 2's" won't be so terrible.

Happy birthday, my sweet. Everyday you make me smile. Everyday you make me proud. Everyday you make me say "Time out" about 6 times too many. Everyday you melt my heart. I love you, Reid. Happy 2nd birthday!!!!!

Happy Birthday Reid!!! I can't believe you're 2! What's with all of these 2-year-olds??? I remember that second picture... still one of my faves. What a sweet (but ornery!) little guy. Mine's certainly becoming ornery too!!! How will I handle an ornery OLDER one? Yikes. Have a great day with your OLD little guy tomorrow!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY REID!!!! Love the post. Could say many of those same things about Aiden. Overwhelming strength through everything but in time-out half his life. :) I am thankful for Reid as well, for without him I most likely would not have had a chance to meet his mommy through her blog. :) Hope his birthday celebration was fun for all.

Happy Birthday Reid!!! You are such a well-loved boy who has endured SO much in just two short years. We hope you have the best birthday ever!

Hugs and kisses,

Allison, Nick, Ella, and Abby

Happy Birthday, Reid! What a doll! I know the time flies by and Gavin will be 2 before I know it!

Hello, and welcome to my page! I am so glad you are here. I am going to try and show you the average life of a 5 year old from my perspective. Mommy and Daddy will help me along the way if I get stuck.

Let me first introduce my family to you. I am Ellie. I am a 6 year old. I live in Ohio with my Mommy, Daddy, little brother Reid, and dog, Sophie. My mommy is a teacher. She teaches nine and ten year olds and loves it. She has been teaching for twelve years. My daddy works with computers. He works hard everyday.

We all love spending time together. I have wonderful grandparents and a terrific extended family. I am a very lucky girl. Thank you for visiting my page. Write to me any time. I love getting mail!!!

Many blessing to you all.

Told ya, my hair can be wild! And you thought I was kidding!

Hmmm, Blue's Brother's perhaps?
