What Handsome Looks Like

 I'm thinking I'll write a letter to Webster and ask him to include this picture under the word "handsome."  It should save him the trouble of describing the whole concept.
These photos capture Reid's two favorite positions.  He loves sitting up.  It's too bad his bumbo is packed away somewhere on an Allied truck.  The second position is very particular.  He is constantly looking over his shoulder like that when he is laying on his back.  No matter how we turn him or whats behind him, he ALWAYS turns his head like that when he is on his backside.  It's too funny.

My favorite position is when he's sleepy, but not quite ready to nap.  This is when he just wants to lay his head on my shoulder and snuggle. 

He's a big talker.  And I've discovered how they came up with the word "mom."  Eighty percent of his cries seriously sound like he is saying "mom."  Some even come out more like mommy.

Right now he's fast asleep with a temperature of 100.1.  Curse the Wisconsin cold.  We've barely been here a week and his nose is all runny, his eye is puffy, and his poops are ick.  But he's still as happy as ever.

We love our little peanut/little turd (or turd cakes)/bugger butt/Richard Nixon/catfish baby!

Loved those pictures of Reid. He is indeed one handsome little dude. I loved the phone text at Ben's swearing in ceremony too - cute, cute.
Just one request -- get rid of those nicknames -- other than Peanut. If you have to keep one other, I suppose Richard Nixon would be acceptable, and that Bugger Nose and Fart Face let's you really know how I feel about all those others!!!
Love, Grandpa B

He IS handsome! I love his little outfit. My baby also always looks back over his shoulder whenever he's laying down. It cracks me up.

Only you would call your baby Richard Nixon. He is super cute, and I love his dapper little sweater. He totally looks like Ben. :)

He is so freaking cute! I'm glad the reddish tint in his hair went away. Can't wait to see him in March!
