Day 278

You don't vacuum your baby??
Reid loves the vacuum cleaning and will crawl as fast as he can to catch it!

{Embrace the camera} March 31st

My Men are slightly obsessed with moving objects....especially airplanes. 
Steve flies R/C planes, and ever since Reid saw him fly about a month ago,
 he LOVES airplanes. 
Every night before we lay him down for bed,
 Reid waves at the airplane above his crib and says hi to it. 

And speaking of motion, 
He loves to jump.
I think he would let me do this all day,
that is, if my arms could handle it. :)

Actually, most of the time Reid is a moving object...a little photobooth action.

Day 276

This is how Reid plays peek a boo. He thinks that he is hiding and it's precious.

Baby B- {22 weeks}

22 weeks pregnant with Reid

22 weeks pregnant with Eli

And just because this is cute....I pulled out all of the newborn and small gdiapers for Eli.
 I don't know why, 
but there is just something so 
adorable about tiny cloth diapers. :)

Day 274

Today was Maine Maple Sugar Sunday. It was VERY cold and windy, but we kept Reid warm either in Steve's coat or in the Ergo with Mormor. 
He got his first taste of maple syrup on ice cream.
 I don't think that he liked how cold the ice cream was at first,
 but it didn't take him long to ask for more. 
Reid pet some cows and really liked it when Steve pet a goat.
We even learned how to make a hook from the blacksmith.

After a short nap in the car Reid was ready to play again. 
He had a bath and then crawled around in his diaper and baby legs. 
He loves to stand up, sitting is so last week.

Day 273-{39 weeks & 9 months old}

Dear Reid,
You are 9 months old today. You have learned so many new things this month! When I was making a list, I ran out of room! You are so fun to be with and Daddy and I love your new noises and “words”.  Here is a list of things you did or learned to do this month:
  • You got your first BIG bruise, right on your forehead because you decided to crawl off of the bed faster than Mommy could move to catch you.
  • You started crawling the day after you turned 8 months old and are SO fast now.
  • You pull up on everything and have no fear of falling.
  • You found the stairs, now we need a gate.
  • You experiment with the tone of your voice, a lot of times it sounds like you are yodeling.
  • You can say, Bob (who is that?) Hey, Hi, Mama, Dada, Baba, Nahnah and Dat
  • I don’t know how tall you are, but your clothes are getting too short
  • You LOVE to watch Daddy fly his model airplanes and kick your feet in excitement the whole time.
  • You are going to be a big brother to a little brother. Eli will be lucky to have you around.
  • You now have 4 teeth. They came in in this order, Lower left, Lower Right, Upper left and then the upper right.
  • You love to splash in the bathtub
  • You love motion
  • You LOVE jumping
  • You cruise all over the house and love to lead us to the playroom.
  • Your neck, back, legs and tummy are SUPER ticklish.
  • You like getting shoulder rides from Daddy, Mormor and Papa G.
  • Since your top teeth came in you love making an underbite. You look so cute when you stick your jaw out.
  • You still love looking out of the windows.
  • You learned how to wave and mostly wave at inanimate objects like, lights, the airplane above your crib and exit signs or ceiling fans.
  • You want to talk on the phone, but when we put the phone to your ear or on speaker you just smile or wave.
  • You love to look in mirrors.
  • You can open and close books
  • You can turn the stereo off and then back on again.
  • You love to look through the floor grate upstairs.

But most of all you love to EAT! You eat, meatballs, chicken soup, lentil soup, strawberrie/banana/pineapple puree, pineapples, pears, pasta, grilled cheese, pizza, milk, raisins, cheese, CHEERIOS, sweet potatos, prune/apple puree and you are starting to want what we are eating. 
We love that God gave us you. We look forward to what this month will bring and all the new things you will learn, you are amazing Reid.

Love always,

Day 268

Saving a cheerio for later?? Last night you spent the night at Mormor and Papa G's house. I guess you had so much fun that you didn't want to go to bed. Eventually you did give in and fall asleep on Papa G. What a good boy you are.

Super Baby by day.....

Family man by night. :)

{Embrace the camera} March 17th

Well, it's Thursday again, so that means it's time for an overload of pictures. 
Somehow I can never narrow it down to just one. 
So below are a few pictures of 
Daddy Embracing Reid,
Mommy Embracing Reid
and Mommy embracing new hair! 

Swinging is the best!

(remind me to wash the mirror before I do a photo shoot next time.)
Apparently something we saw was jaw dropping...

Day 263

Peek a boo!! 
Reid has learned how to pull himself up on just about anything. 
His favorites right now are the dishwasher, coffee table, couch, guitar (yikes) and the dining room chairs. 
He is quite brave and has figured out how to get back down with calculated grace. :)

Day 262

Trying out the strawberry, pineapple, banana puree. Reid LOVED it and loved biting the silicone spatula. :)

It's blurry, but I love Reid's cute!

Baby B-{20 weeks}

Well we've made it half way through this second pregnancy!!! I am 20 weeks along and feeling pretty good. I have lots of food aversions but only 2 cravings on occasion....french fries and pizza. Not the healthiest cravings, but my body hates being pregnant and tells me that through food. :) I have a little bit more energy and I'm enjoying bonding with Eli when I have the chance.

Baby B-Gender Reveal!!!

We wanted to be a little creative with the way that we 
revealed Baby B's gender to my parents. 
They stayed with Reid while we went for the ultrasound.
We decided to present them with a 
blueberry muffin if it was a boy
 and a strawberry muffin if it was a girl.








We will be welcoming Eli Joseph Martin on July 26th, 2011 via scheduled c-section.

We are delighted to add another boy to our little family.
