And We're Back!

After taking an 81/2 month blog hiatus, I'm back and determined to continue recording our family adventures in a much more regular fashion!  So far, 2013 has been a bit of a challenge, with myriad health issues (luckily, just Jeff and me, not Reed!) and typically busy schedules taking precedence.  But Reed continues to grow and change so fast and I hate that I missed documenting every step of the way. While there's no way I can really get all of the 8 months, I'll at least provide a few snippets, starting with the spring and Reed's 2nd birthday.  Here we go!

With Reed's continued infatuation with everything music-related, we went with a music theme for his party and invited the music teacher from the JCC, Miss Michelle, to come to the house and give the kids a 45-minute music class.  Reed and his friends had an absolute blast.  We also lucked out with beautiful spring weather, so everyone got some play time outside, followed by pizza and an amazing cake.  After Reed's nap, we opened presents and had a family dinner with Grammy, Bubbe, Zaide, Aunt Rachael, Alex, and Uncle Floyd.  We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day!

Happy 2nd birthday, Reed!
