Those BIG brown eyes...

...completely melt our hearts!!!  I think we're in trouble when Reid gets a little older...=)

I looked at the blog today and realized that it has been a LONG while since I've posted...sorry about that Blogland followers...  But we have been busy, busy!  The last week or so has included an adoption celebration for Lex (adopted from Russia by some friends of ours at church), BBQs with our CG group, dinners with friends, outings with the fam, Reid's first experience in the church nursery, and Reid's first kiddie bday party.  Lots of fun!

Sweet Reid is almost 12 weeks old now, and continues to be such a happy, laid-back baby - what a blessing!  He loves music, playing with his toys, standing (assisted by us, of course), and has started picking everything up and putting it straight into his mouth.  He's also FINALLY started belly-laughing...I captured a video of it this afternoon, but for some reason I'm having problems uploading it to the I'll be sure to try again later. =)  We're constantly amazed at how quickly he's growing as well - currently he's about 25 inches long and around 14 pounds - he looks so different than the day we brought him home from the hospital!  Reid is also expanding his circle of friends... he is now VERY interested in our two boys, Johnny and Fat Jack - he's so proud of himself whenever they get close enough that he can grab a handful of hair.  They love him...ha. (Note the sarcasm)  Reid has also gotten really interested in other kids...he loves to watch them and studies them so carefully.  Usually, after a few minutes of careful watching, he'll start smiling and laughing at them.  Too cute!

There is so much more I could write about, but for now I must run...chicken enchiladas are almost ready for dinner!  But before I end the post, I just want to give a shout out to 3 very special couples from our church that are beginning their adoption processes... we are SO EXCITED for all of you and can't wait to pray with you and your families as you walk through this amazing process.  It truly is incredible!!!  I also have another dear friend, Becky, who got to meet their birthmom today and found out that they will be getting a little girl on June 14th - the Lord's blessings never cease!  CONGRATULATIONS to you all!

I am cracking up at Reid's weight. Sadie just hit the 16 lbs mark and is almost 8 months! You are right about how much he's changed! He looks so much older than he is and those eyes...OMG! He has a sweet look about him.

Glad you are LOVING adoption and it's incredible life changing journey. So glad you are able to walk along in it with other friends, you are a blessing to them I know. It's just nice to be able to have someone close who you can ask questions to or even just understands what it's like, ya know?

Love the pics!
