What a Week!!

After spending his first few days in the hospital, it was wonderful to finally get our little guy home.  He has been so fun to get to know and watch all his little faces and movements now that he is “on the outside” or, as my Uncle Alex, the OB doctor, calls it, “exteriorized.”   :)

We first saw him stick out his tongue in our 28 week sonogram and here it is again! :)We first saw him stick out his tongue in our 28 week sonogram and here it is again! :)

Reid’s first doctor appointment went well and we learned he is gaining weight – a huge relief for me because it means that breastfeeding is going well.

Reid met his Great Uncle Matt and Great Aunt Ellen while they are in Central Texas on a visit.  Great timing!

My Uncle Matt and Aunt Ellen met Reid!Sadie Belle has been curious about the little man, and slightly nervous, it seems.  She stays pretty close to us and wants to play a lot.Jer is a happy guy with Sadie Belle and Reid.We are all still getting to know each other.We said goodbye to my mom on Thursday. We appreciated all her help!  Luckily, she was able to stay long enough to “hand off” to Jer’s parents (Bob and Dana), who arrived on Thursday.  They have already been a big help and we appreciate them!

He's had enough! Do you see Sadie escaping through the doggie door in the background?  It got noisey!More to come!
