Happy 7 Months!!! (yesterday...)

Michael Reid turned 7-months old yesterday...I can hardly believe it!  Every day I look at him and can't believe how quickly he is growing and changing.  His little personality is really starting to show and he remains one of the happiest kids I know (I may be a *little* biased)!

This past month has been HUGE for the little man... just a few milestones:

Army crawling (still his preferred method of transportation)
Crawling on all fours
Sitting up from any position (from stomach or back)
Pulling up (on everything!)
Climbing (on everything!) - Yes, we have now lowered his crib almost to the floor...

Reid also LOVES food!  His current favorites include: carrots, squash, pears, green beans, and applesauce.  He also enjoys sweet potatoes, bananas, puffs, peaches, and oatmeal.  The only things he's really not a fan of are peas and rice cereal... don't think I blame him.

For breakfast, he always eats oatmeal and fruit... lunch is a vegetable... and dinner is a vegetable (and soon to add some protein).  I keep thinking that all of this food will help him cut back on his bottles, but nope... the boy likes to eat.  Reid is still taking 6 bottles per day (although we've backed down to 6 oz bottles rather than 8 oz).

Another huge happening... Reid finally got meet his Uncle Joey this past week!  Joey is getting his MBA at Columbia in NYC, and just had his first break in classes since Reid has been born.  He's been in town visiting this whole past week, and I think they've had a great time getting to know each other.  Ben is actually headed for his first visit (ever) to NYC with Joe and Candice today through Monday evening.  Here are a few pics:

Studying Uncle Joe for the first time... so confused that he looks so much like Daddy...

Big smiles...

Hugs for Uncle Joey

More sweet hugs (Reid is very into giving hugs and kisses these days)...

We're so glad that you and Aunt Candice got to visit this week, Uncle Joey!  Looking forward to seeing you in Philadelphia at Thanksgiving!
