Reid {6 months}

Dear Reid,

Man, time is simply flying by!! I cannot believe that you are already a half a year old! CRAZINESS! We are having so much fun with you and your simply sweet and lovable personality. You are such a blessing to our family!
You are continuing to grow and grow. At your 6th month appointment you weighed in at 18 pounds and measured 26 1/4" long! I guess we aren't going to have a problem with you hitting the 20 pound mark when you turn 1. It appears you are bound and determined to beat Maddie at growing! ;)
You are really starting to jibber jabber. It cracks me up when you are upset, but you aren't quite crying. You just start talking in an angry'd probably get in trouble for talking to us that way if we had any idea what you were saying. Most of the time though, we get to enjoy you just telling stories and laughing.
You love to eat fruits and veggies, which is apparent from your previous measurements and have actually started getting bored with your bottle. You have been eating about a jar in a half to 2 jars of food a day, but the doc gave us the go ahead to move you to 3 jars a day. I think I heard you let out a shriek of joy when she told us that! ;)
You are so so playful and want so badly to start crawling. You try constantly which usually leads to a carpet face-plant and a few frustrated cries. No worries,'ll get there in no time!
Thank you so much for letting us love you! We have had so much fun with you! Lots of hugs and kisses!!!


Reid {5 Months!}

*We are all pretending this was posted a month ago. Thank you for your cooperation!* ;-)
Dear Reid,

You are growing up so fast! 5 months have sped by, and you have completely won over our hearts. You even have Maddie hooked!! She loves you so much, and you absolutely adore her! You even tend to get really cranky when she leaves the room.
You are still such a happy baby! You love to smile at just about anyone who gives you attention, and you love to laugh (we love it too!) I could listen to the sound of your laughter all. day. long! If I could set my alarm with the sound of yours and Maddie's laughter, I would wake up in a good mood every day!
Photo shoots are starting to get harder, especially if Maddie is in the room. You just stare at her no matter what kind of goofy sounds or faces I'm making. I see you've already set your priorities. :-P
You are starting to get more and more active. You do great at tummy time and are trying really hard to hold your bottle. Just a few more muscles and you'll be able to in no time. You are also great at sitting up. Every now and then you take a tumble (or are victim of a little love push from your sister) but once we set you back up you go right back to playing.
You are eating cereal, fruits and veggies very well. You don't care too much for green beans right now, but we'll try them again later. We're praying you're not a picky eater...which according to your current roll count, it's looking like our prayers will be answered. ;)

We love you so much baby boy! I can't to see what you'll be up to next month!
