5 things about 3-year old Reed that I love.

1. When my sister Liesel came to visit without her husband Craig, Reed asked her:
"Where's your Sam?"

2. Reed wanted to go for a run with me, so we ran to the end of my street and back.  He runs along side of me and after one minute he says:
"Mommy?  I love you."
And then, run, run, run, run, run.
"Mommy?  This is a great run."
Run, run, run, run.
"Mommy?  You're a great runner."
Run, run, run, run.
"Mommy?  I'm tired."  And then we're done.

3. Reed calls M&Ms "num n' nums."

4. If you tell Reed he has to wait until tomorrow for something, he says with woe:
"too many morrows?"  Or if he wants to know how long he has to wait for something, he asks:  "How many morrows?"

5.  Jillian Michaels has been replaced.  Spiderman is his new love and obsession.  We don't know where this came from.   His name is now "Reed Spidermanhart."  He wears Spiderman pajamas everynight and on most days.  He borrowed a Spiderman costume from Beckett that he hasn't taken off since he got it.  He shoots a web at you from his wrist if he's mad.  He sings the Spiderman theme song (which I mistakenly showed him on youtube once, and now he asks for it hourly) and wants me to tell him stories where HE turns out to be Spiderman and captures the bad guy.
