Good Tuesday everyone!
We had a good day today - Reed went in for his 6 month appointment (yes, a bit early) but I asked if we could merge two appointments (the other being a check-up for his ears) and save a copay. They were nice enough to say ok! All was well and Reed charmed the nurses! He was 85% in length, 95% in head size and a measly 25% for weight - and I thought he was chunking up. Oh well... I still think he's cute as can be - even if he's going to be a long and lean one. :-) Oh, and DD, please tell Leigha that the doctor said that the dent in his chest was normal. I think she was worried about it!
Just to bring you up to speed on what he's in to now and what he's doing... Anything that's in my hand or close to him is grabbed. it's so cute to see their hand/eye coordination develop. He's saying bah, bah, bah all the time (which I just today realized that he may be mimicking the sound R for riley instead... rah, rah, rah. It's just so hard to say. He LOVES his brother - sometimes when Riley leaves the room he about jumps out of my hands to follow Riley. Too cute! He still isn't too much of a fan for the car seat - and he's still not taking a passy - at all. His passy are his middle finger and his ring finger. That's a good indicator that it's time for a nap when he starts putting those fingers in his mouth! He's still teething and drooling on everything, but still no teeth are poking out of the gums. He's rolling from front to back, back to front and looks hilarious when he's going to sleep (we've spied on him!) b/c it looks like he's steamrolling back and forth the length of his crib. Let's see - he's always smiling and I don't think he's going to meet a stranger (much different from his big brother). He does know what he wants and when he's tired he'll pitch a little fit if he doesn't get it!!! His reflux is getting better and he's draining those 6 ounce bottles at times (of course they do have cereal in them too). All in all, we are enjoying every day with this little fellow. He steals our hearts every morning with that huge smile!!!
Ok, now share with us all what smells you are loving right now - Shannon and I are always comparing, so let's see what you all say! I'm loving the smell of Johnson's baby lotion and this Ajax antibacterial dishwashing soap (orange scent). Delicious smelling!
It'll be update time for Riley soon as he starts preschool on his daddy's birthday - September 6th. DD, anxious to hear how the first days with your girls went. We miss you something terrible...
