On another note, Reed started his first chore chart and has become more and more aware about what he can do to "help" out around the house. His chores are very small and simple, but he really enjoys the sense of responsibility. He gives us a big smile when he finishes his two-item list and volunteers to help out now, emptying the dishwasher utensils, picking up after himself, helping Jacob with different projects, and getting out things I need like the vacuum or Swiffer when he hears me talk about it. It is pretty cool to watch! I wonder how long it will last?
