Golden Day!

Reed turned 13 today...his GOLDEN birthday, our second golden birthday this year!
Reed was my very hardest delivery and had to be taken by ambulance to the NICU in Eugene. We spent a very scary 4 days driving to Eugene, holding Reed for 12 hours, going home, and doing it all over again the next day. At 7 lbs and 1 oz he looked like a giant next to most of the babies in the nursery and the nurses enjoyed him because he was less fragile that their normal clientele.

Reed wanted to stay home from school today and when we said "no," he "played sick" and did it anyway.

He ordered steak for dinner and key lime pie for his "birthday cake." We'll celebrate with a few friends late this month.

Happy Birthday Reed...We love you!
