Reid-{15 months old}

Dear Reid,
Happy 15 month birthday! You are soooo much fun to be with and you are learning new things every day. I love watching you want to understand things and how to do things. Here are highlights of what you are like right now.
Words you can say:
Key=keys or car or anything that moves
Eek= Peek-a-boo
brrrrrr=car, plane, bus etc.
Mama (when he feels like it)
Uh oh
Oh no
Eeeeeeeeee=Eli when very excited
Signs you use:
Thank you (sometimes)
Oh no
All done
You Understand:
Out...even if we spell it
Putting things away
Bringing something to us if asked
Play a song
turn aroud
You like:
Planes and anything that moves
being outside
Riding his bike
Getting shoulder rides or back rides
The piano
Playing the guitar and drums
Daddy’s wind up tractor toy
Splashing in the bath
Eating cereal at Mormor and Papa G’s house
Turning the light switch on and off
Throwing trash away
blowing nose
Banging your chest like Tarzan
Putting a necklace on and off
Getting on and off of the couch
Sitting at the table for dinner
Don’t like:
Dirt or sticky things on your hands
A lot of food including bananas
staying inside
being left in the nursery at Moms group (but we’re working on that)
We love you sooooooo very much Reid and we love to see you grow and learn. You are such a gift and bring smiles to the faces of the people who konw you and even ones who don’ people at the grocery store. Keep being curious Reid, keep wanting to learn, keep being you.
You are a joy!
Love you,

Day 62-{2 months old}

Dear Eli,
You are 2 months old today. You are starting to become more and more fun. Daddy and I love that you smile at us and “chat” with us. Reid loves that you smile at him and watch him. 
Here is a list of what you do:
Sleep through the night (most of the time)
Sleep in the same room as Reid
Smile at Reid
Like being held
Like going for walks
Try really hard to suck your thumb
Projectile vomit ( oh what fun)
Wiggle A LOT
You love the mobile above the changing table
You pee a lot, so much so that the gdiapers aren’t keeping up with your pee
You still have blue eyes
You are strong and really want to stand up. I guess sitting is for babies. :)
You hold yourself up really well

At your 2 month check up you weighed 14lbs 2oz and are 24” long. You are a lot chunkier than your brother at this age and wear some 0-3 month clothes, but mostly 3-6 and some 6-9. 
We are glad you are a part of our family. 
I love you more than you know,
Your Mommy

Reid and the Wii

When we visit Papa G and Mormor's house,
Reid loves to sit on the Wii balance board.
I wonder what he thinks about
while he sits there.
He looks so precious!

First Day

Today was the first meeting of Moms group. 
It was also the first time I left Reid
 with someone other than family.
He was ready to go as soon as his bag was packed.
He did great.
He cried when other kids started crying,
but stopped crying after
they went back to their Mommies.
He had a great time.

Day 45

I love Eli's smile.
Reid is so curious about him.
This moment didn't last long
before Eli got poked or pulled on. :)
