"Himself"....Dressing Himself

Reid has had all sorts of developmental growths of late...his speech is totally blossoming, he counts to 3 without going 1, 2, 5, 2, 1, he spots every stop sign known to man kind and signs it with his little hands (quite aggressively, it's rather funny) and then proudly shouts out "stop" for all to hear, he can kind of say Merry Christmas ..."May Mismas" is close enough in my book...although sometimes I think it gets him a little tongue tied and the other day he decided to say "Happy Birthday" instead as he swung open our front door to come inside....again, close enough in my book. ;)

However....today I highlight a different sort of developmental growth... the terrible 2 or 3 thingy where they want to dress themselves without help. I am not complaining mind you...I like that Reid wants to do things by himself, and I like that he has his own opinions about what he wants to wear.... I only wish his pick had not been last year's Christmas sweater that never made it to the attic that is a bit too snug, too small, and too short.... the jeans I am a-okay with but we need to work on which way they need to go on his little body, however this particular day was a very stubborn day and no sort of assistance from mom was to be had, none...period. He then thought a summer hat which you can find in his hand would accent the ensemble just right.

Again....even all of this is okay by me, my little boy is growing up.... Yay, for you Reid Maddux!

Yay! Another milestone for your little man! He looks adorable as always. Addie is very into doing things by herself now too...and she gets very frustrated if she needs help. Let's try to get them together while you are on break.

These are photos to treasure! Reid is changing, growing, it's really awesome. I love the backwards pants, too. Precious! Merry Christmas!

I too love the backwards jeans... Independence is so important, Reid is definitely on the right track!


PS: Sorry for the late comment, am barely catching up now in the blogging world...

He is so perfectly delightful. I melt when ever I see him. I guess I see River in him or something. I look forward to all these milestones with River and imagine how wildly proud I will be. I already celebrate everything he does. He is just so joyful and feisty, and never gives up. Thanks for sharing your little Reid with us.

What a little trend setter! Just wait, in a few years everyone will be wearing their pants backwards with an old Christmas sweater, hat in hand!
