Just as a side note, the response we have received regarding his name amongst "little people" has been quite funny...whenever kids at Luke's school ask Reid's name they always look back at me puzzled, like, "Huh? Why did you name him Read...like you read a book?". Quite honestly I don't really remember how we decided on his name but I remember discussing names on a plane ride back from Seattle months before we were even pregnant and debated if we ever used the name if we would spell it Reid or Reed, and for us the ei won out. Actually, we have often joked that our poor little one will always need to spell his name for people.... Toby grew up always having to tell people to spell Foreman with an e, I grew up having to tell everyone I am Cheri with a c.....and now our poor little guy will need to say, "I am Reid with an ei...Maddux with a u...and Foreman with an e. But, somehow I think he'll be able to handle it. :)

Well it turns out we chose the right name for Reid...as his favorite pastime, next to baseball, is reading books. If he could he would pull books off his shelf in his room all day. The teacher in me is so excited...and he even babbles as he is "pretending" to read, definitely a pre-reading skill we hope for all of our children... extra chromosome or no extra chromosome.
