Reid at 1 Week Old

Our sweet baby boy is one week old - I feel like he has already changed so much!!  We have his newborn photo session booked for this Saturday...  Our photographer is Crystal who owns "Love, Me" photography.  Her pictures are fantastic and we are really looking forward to it!

Reid is learning so much every day - it blows our minds! (and makes us a little sad, too, that this baby phase passes so quickly)...  Here's a picture of Reid already holding his head up while KK was holding him:

And this blue elephant that we are for some reason calling "Buddy", has become Reid's new best friend.  Every time we change his diaper he just sits there and looks at Buddy and even talks to him sometimes.  Too cute!

And, here's a picture of Reid and Mommy from this afternoon.  Love this little man!!  Please excuse my make-up...  I'm still in baby boot camp, folks! =)

So precious! He's such a beautiful boy! I love his big brown eyes! Can't wait to see the pictures of his photo session! It really does go by fast. But every phase is so much fun in its own way!

He is so precious. You stay in that hat w/ no make up as long as you'd like - that is the best time ever! You are right, they grow up so fast. Enjoy this baby boot camp phase. Still praying and praising with you! I LOVED the sweet pictures.

Hi Holly! I enjoy reading your blogs so much!

Mark and I are so happy for you and Ben! We can't believe how perfect Reid is! You and Ben, being the sweetest people, deserve nothing but the best! It's only fitting that you both were blessed with such a perfect little angel. :-)

I hope we get to meet your son one some day soon! Congratulations over and over and over again!
