Reid’s Fourth Week

It is hard to believe our little man will be four weeks old tomorrow!   Now that I’m feeling so much better, we got out and about a lot more in the past week – thank goodness!!  Reid had his first trip to the Apple Store, Chuy’s patio for dinner and Amy’s Ice Cream, to name a few.  We even met Jer for lunch one day – hopefully we’ll do that more often!

Family outing to get Amy's Ice CreamHe really seems to love baths!  (We’ll get more pictures as we get better at handling a squirmy wet baby!)

Reid likes being in the tubby! "ahhh...I feel so much better now..." With Jer back at work, and Reid being a champion eater, we decided to try having Jer give him breastmilk from a bottle.  It is a nice way for Jer and Reid to spend time together, and I get a break!Reid's first bottleJust this week we’ve noticed that he really seems to like quiet time with us just looking around and talking to him.  He’s very observant!  I even gave him a little baby massage – who wouldn’t like that?!He loves to hang out and take it all in...

I can't believe Reid will be 4 weeks old Saturday. It seems like Papa and I just arrived in Austin. It has been wonderful watching Jenny and Jer taking care of Reid and nurturing their precious little man. We feel blessed to have had this time with them and it will be hard to leave them.....but we look forward to "Riding Shotgun" with them through this site and phone calls. Thank you Jer and Jenny for letting us be a part of such a special time in your lives. We love you all very, very much.
Ammy & Papa
