Day 66

You are such a happy guy in the morning.
Today Mormor helped you learn how to hold onto a toy. Later on in the night you learned how to hold your teething toy and put it in your mouth. You are so smart! :)

Day 64

Today was your first trip to Sebago Lake. Mormor, Papa G, Daddy and Mommy all went and enjoyed a very warm afternoon relaxing and swimming. You seem happy about the water at first....
but I think it was a little chilly for you...
later on we played phase 10...I think you are saying, "Daddy, why did you skip me?" in this picture. :o)

{Embrace the camera}- August 26th

Diapers....they are what I do...

Day 61- {2 month letter}

Dear Reid (aka. Bubba, Mr.Bubbles, Bugaboo or Winkey),

You are 2 months old today. That means that I have known you for 61 days! You are getting so big and are becoming stronger each day. You are working on some nice baby rolls on your legs and arms. You are still a sweet baby and you are so relaxed. I am so glad that I am your Mommy.

In the last month you have learned to: lift your head up at a 90 degree angle, use your voice to make more than one noise, make surprised, really sad and mad faces, suck your fingers and how to GROW like CRAZY. You have gained at least 2 inches in length since last month and you definitely weigh more. You go to your 2 month check up in a week and Mommy is not looking forward to it because you will get more shots. :(

It seems that you like to: move....A LOT, “talk” for longer periods of time, be carried in the Ergo, sit in your high chair during dinner, sleep and to be interacted with.

You are wearing: Most 0-3 month onesies are too short on you now. Newborn is REALLY short. In a few brands the 3 month size fits you perfectly in length, but not width, you are still so long and lean (even with the baby rolls). 6-9 months fits well for length but is still baggy, your waist isn’t fat enough to fill them out yet. 0-3 month pants are fitting around your waist and are getting a little short. 3 month pants are a little baggy, 3-6 month and 6-9 month pants fit for length but again, don't fit around your waist. It will be interesting to see if by next month you are a chubby little man. :o)

Even though deep down in my heart I want you to stay little forever, I am so looking forward to each stage of who you are and who you are growing to be. I don’t want to miss a moment of it Reid. You are precious to me, you are precious to Daddy, but mostly you are precious to Jesus. I pray that you’ll come to know Him.

I love you more than you know,

Your Mommy

1 month (more like 6 week) letter

Dear Reid,

Your first month, I can not believe that we are able to say your age in month form instead of just day or week form. You are truly a joy to be around. You have gone from this tiny little person that we didn’t understand or know, to a strong little guy who looks at us and we now understand your cries and what they mean. This first month (actually 6 weeks) you have learned:

to hold your head up, kick, blow bubbles, coo, “talk” back to us when we talk to you, kick your legs at the same time, stand when your feet are on a hard table or surface, eat from a bottle, poop through your diaper, pee, spit up and poop on Mommy, sleep through the night (most of the time), follow objects, stare at us and follow us with your eyes as we move around the room, SMILE, sit in a chair without falling over and I’m sure there is more.

It seems that you like to: EAT & poop, look at the trees on our walks on the Eastern Prom, kicking, drooling and blowing bubbles, making noises, looking at the mobile Mommy made for you and staring at Daddy when he comes home from work.

Daddy and I love you more and more as each day passes. We love how you sneeze and follow it with a loud “ohhh”. We love how you smile at us. We love how you “talk” to us, snuggle, drool on and love us. You are such a wonderful little boy and I can’t wait to get to talk with you some day and get to know who you are at each stage of your life, just don’t grow up TOO fast. I pray that you will grow to love God and to follow Him and I am so grateful that He has entrusted you to Daddy and I. Oh and by the way, I still can’t believe that I am a Mommy, wow!

I love you,

Your Mommy

Embrace the camera-August 5th

So Emily over at the Anderson Crew does a challenge every Thursday to get yourself in the picture since Moms are behind the camera a lot, so that your children will have pictures of you and them together to cherish when they are older. So here Reid and I are in his room right after he woke up from his morning nap.
