Michael Reid is 6 months old!!!

We can hardly believe that our baby boy is 6 months old... Oh, how the time has flown!  Reid is such a happy, vibrant, ACTIVE little guy - he truly completes our family and brings more joy than we could have ever imagined.  We go for Reid's 6 month well-check this Friday, so I will post all of his stats at the end of the week.  He is growing so fast that I can hardly wait to see how much he weighs!  

His recent milestones have included:
sitting up
talking in his own little language a TON
belly laughing frequently
all-out wrestling with Dad (this is his favorite activity, by far!  He can hardly contain himself when Ben gets home in the evenings)
eating REAL food - he's such a GREAT eater!  The only thing he hasn't liked is peas... can you blame him???
And... he's becoming very MOBILE!  - Reid will army crawl/or worm his way to coffee cups, cell phones, remote controls, and laptops.  Not his toys, mind you... he knows we'll bring those to him, I suppose =)

The six month mark is also a HUGE milestone in adoption for the state of Texas... at 6 months, we are officially eligible for Reid's finalization.  I can't even tell you how happy this makes my heart!  We have started the process of paperwork to get our court date assigned in San Antonio, but most likely we won't get to go down there until September.  We can hardly wait for GOTCHA DAY!!!  We'll be sure to keep everyone posted on those details...

And, finally... here are some pics of our big 6-month old enjoying his new playroom/family room.  We got rid of the pool table and got a new couch/rug to make more room for the kids to play... he seems to love it!

Happy Half-Birthday, Reider!  We love you!!!

He is such a cutie! So happy... glad you're all well!

Yea! So fun to get ready for Gotcha Day! It's a day you'll never forget. Love those pictures and love the "new" room. He'll be going fast in no time and you'll be so glad you have another place for him to be free!
