Three Months Old!

So I'm a little behind on blogging posts due to a sick household, but we are all better now and everything is getting back to normal - thank goodness!!!  

To catch everyone up... sweet Michael Reid turned 3 months old on Sunday - I can hardly believe it!  He's getting so big, so fast...

Reid now weighs a whopping 14 pounds and is 25 inches long!  When we go in for our well-check visits, all of the nurses still comment that we're raising a line-backer - and a VERY handsome one at that!!!  Dad is VERY excited that we could have a potential football player in the family... If Reid was our biological child, he wouldn't stand a chance - he'd be too lanky and too skinny =)  Who knows...football might be the very last thing he wants to do...we'll just wait and see!

Another great thing about the 3 month mark... we are to the HALF WAY point of our adoption finalization - YIPEE!!!!  We absolutely cannot wait until August!!! =)  More details about the process in future posts...

I love this picture...I can totally hear him saying, "Seriously, Mom???  Another picture???"  I just can't help myself!

Reid's new-found love is the television...every time we walk into the gameroom, it's the first thing that he looks at or watches.  Here he is yesterday morning watching his Baby Beethoven DVD...completely mesmerized! 

And, again, wondering why he has constant paparazzi surrounding him...=)

Reid is also VERY interested in his toys...he always wants to be playing with one of them!  This is a great shot of him holding his Columbia turtle (from Aunt Candice & Uncle Joey) while talking to his singing friends on his swing - I love how he's pointing his little finger at them!

Another new "favorite" of our little man...standing and walking - he constantly wants you to be holding him up where he can walk around.  Here he is walking on Daddy's chest...such strong little legs =)

My favorite time with the little dude is still right as he wakes up from his naps...he is such a happy baby!  (Of course the camera didn't catch his smile)  He has started pushing himself up on his elbows as high as he can to peer over the side of his bed at us when we walk into the room to get him - too cute!  And, surprisingly, he even rolled over TWO times yesterday from his tummy to his back!  Go Reid!

When I saw this picture I was amazed at how big my baby boy looked - definitely no longer a newborn!  Makes me a little sad that he is growing so fast, but excited about all the fun times ahead...

And, finally...I just had to post this picture that my sweet friend, Kym, just sent me.  She took this on her phone several weeks ago at church... Our little man stylin' in the Shoe Gypsy hat!

We love you more every day, sweet baby boy!!!

So glad everyone is feeling better!

Those pictures are adorable and those eyes are to die for! I love the finger point too.

I can't believe how big he is, just reminds me how small Sadie is! She was only 14 lbs at 6 months!
