Happy 2nd Birthday Grayson!

 Happy Birthday Grayson!!!!!

How is it possible?!  How can my sweet, little baby boy be 2 years old already?  My goodness, it has gone by fast. Excuse me for a moment while I reminesce about how little he used to be. :)

Ohhh, I'm dying!  I just love this boy SO MUCH!  I can't believe how big he is now. 

Here he is a year ago on his 1st birthday.

I dont' have a picture of him today, as a 2 year old, because he hasn't woken up yet.  But here are some recent pictures and some things he loves.

oh, how he loves basketball!

and shopping for baby sister

silly faces

reading with Daddy

swimming and the beach

the park, we go there all. the. time.

And boy, does Gray love treats!  I think he got his Momma's sweet tooth. :)

Guess what, he woke up!  Here is my big, 2 year old boy today.  On his birthday! 

Birthday boys get Fruit Loops for breakfast (or woops as he calls them)

Happy birthday Grayson Thomas Reynolds!  Mommy and Daddy love you SO MUCH!  Our lives would be incomplete without you.  You are such a sweet, loving, energetic boy and a bright spot of sunshine in our life.  We love you big boy!

24 Weeks and Baby Girl has a name! (+some Grayson too)

Ok, so it's been awhile since my last update, I know.  But I'm doing one now!  This pregnancy is still going awesomely.  So much better than my first, which wasn't too bad considering others I know who have really hard pregnancies.  I was sick for a long time with Gray, and a very short time this time.  I had lots and lots of heartburn with Grayson, and almost none this time.  I'm noticeably pregnant now, but I feel great.  I can't complain one bit!  I feel so blessed.  I hope it continues going this well.

And our little girl has a name now! She's going to be Reese Mari.  We both really liked the name Reese.  And Mari (pronounced like Mary) is from my mom's name- Maribeth. We named Grayson early too.  I'm one of those people who want to decide early and be able to call my baby his/her name before they're born.  Josh would wait a lot longer if it was up to him, but I always convince him to decide early. :)

Here I am at 24 weeks. (My last update was at 20 weeks)  Although I'm 27 weeks now, 6 months along.  2/3 down and only 1/3 left to go- woo hoo!

Here's my progression. 
(My cute friend Ashley is doing this, and I'm copying her) :)

12 weeks

16 weeks

20 weeks

24 weeks

And here are the promised pictures of my sweet little Grayson. And a few other things. Angelyn, no more complaining from you! ;)
 Gray loves balls! Especially basketball.  Soccer and baseball are 2nd and 3rd.


Me and my baby, I love this boy to pieces!

 Grayson likes to be "stuck" in things. 

Playing with Daddy's ipod.

So this isn't Grayson related, but I made this cute little crib sheet for Reese...
 ...and this one too! (Gray wanted to test it out)

Happy 27th Birthday to me!

Grayson really enjoyed my birthday cake. :)

Gray learned how to put on his sunglasses by himself.  I'm so proud.

He liked the giraffe.

So there's my update.  Hopefully it won't be so long until the next one.
