Our baby boy is SIX WEEKS OLD today...WOW!!! I know I say this all of the time...but we are just amazed at how quickly the time flies! Reid is becoming more and more of a little man every day - we love him so much! His best friend is still "Buddy" (the blue elephant)...but he's expanded his circle of friends to the mobile of animals above his bed. Apparently, they are about the funniest things ever. =) And, Reid is absolutely fascinated with his activity gym...he puts in a good workout about three to four times per day...he just kicks and kicks, and talks, and plays...he really works up a sweat!
We have also discovered that we have a tummy baby...this is FAVORITE way to sleep:
Now, before anyone goes turning me in to CPS... I KNOW that babies are only supposed to sleep on their backs these days. Rest assured, we only let him sleep on his tummy when we are in the room with him and can keep an eye on him (or when Mom and Dad need him to sleep just ONE MORE hour in the mornings!). But it is so cute!!! He wants his little legs tucked up under him and his butt straight up in the air.
Here's a better angle of him from behind...you can really see how he tucks his legs and sticks up his bottom =) (Sorry...all of these pics were taken with my cell phone...not great quality.)
Fat Jack used to lay where Reid currently sits, and was none too happy to give up his spot! But...he's coming around and has decided to now park himself either right next to Ben's sink (as pictured) or directly IN Ben's sink.
Our sweet boy is also smiling so much these days! He even belly-laughs in his sleep, but hasn't figured out how to laugh out loud when he is awake yet. Here's a picture of him waking up from a nap. As soon as he sees me I get the best smile =)
Ben and I just can't believe how much Reid is growing and changing every day! It's so much fun to watch and exciting to see what new things he learns every day. We love you so much, little man!!!
This next week I may be MIA in blogland... We have been (frantically) preparing for our vacation this week. We leave for Maui THIS Saturday and won't be back until the next Friday. We are so excited to be there...just dreading all of the packing and laundry that must happen by Friday evening. But...we are going with some dear, dear friends that we lived with up in Minneapolis - it's been well over a year since we've all seen each other and we couldn't be more thrilled!!! So...to the Bowlin fam, the Sannes fam, the Spettle fam, and Kyle... we will see you in just a few short days!!! To everyone else...Aloha until next week!
