Reid Is 1 Month Old Today!

We can't believe that Reid is 1 month old today!  Time seems to go by so very fast...

I realized I hadn't put any videos of the little man up on our blog...so here are a few =)  The first video with the activity gym is from this morning.  As I was getting ready in the bathroom, Reid was squealing and talking to the flashing star on his activity gym - it was so cute!  Ben and I were both cracking up!  But, of course, by the time the video camera came out...he was suddenly camera shy.  Oh well!  I still think it's a cute little video of him.  

The second video was also taken today, and one that we have been talking about posting for a long time.  It's a video of Reid eating...he makes the craziest noises as he's gulping down the bottle - he's done it from day 1 and it's so funny to us!  The other reason we posted this video, is it also captures the only time that our sweet baby ever cries... when he's burbing.  He HATES having the bottle taken away to be burped...and he lets us know it. =)  But, no worries...he calms right down as soon as he gets the bottle back... no baby torture going on here. =)

A few milestones for our little one month old:

1) Reid is now eating 5 full ounces at every feeding...the boy LIKES TO EAT!  I packed away all of his little bottles last weekend...he's now drinking out of the big boy 8 ounce bottles.  Made his Mom a little sad...
2) He is smiling all of the time at us - absolutely makes my day!
3) He's really starting to "talk"... we can have little conversations with him, and he definitely tells his "friends" (aka...the star...and buddy, of course) all about his day.  
4) I have started back to work.  I was dreading this last week, but I have to say that it is going much better than I anticipated.  Plus, I really do LOVE my job.  I'm very fortunate to work from home, so I don't have to miss out on any time with the little guy.  And, Reid has the two best grandmothers IN THE WORLD... who come over to help so that I have some uninterrupted work time.  Thank you both so much!!!

I agree that this little guy is SO alert! He doesn't look like a one month old! Sadie is just now eating 5 oz, so I am cracking up!

Glad work is going well! Such a blessing to have family close!

he's gorgeous and how blessed you are to have grandmother help! Lucky lady! Can't wait to meet him...I'm thinking we all need to just head up to Waco with our babies in tow for a big reunion.
