Six Month Stats

Happy Reid enjoying the cool Ohio weather. For the first time, our little Reid hasn’t grown as much since his last appointment.  He was on such a growth trajectory that we aren’t surprised that he’s starting to level off!  Here are his stats:

  • Weight:  18lbs 10 oz (71 percentile)
  • Height: 27 1/2  in  (85 percentile)
  • Latest milestones:  getting up on all fours and then scooting backwards, babbling with loud “doy-doy-doy-doy” and “mm-mm-mm-mm” and “ba-ba-ba-ba,” squealing with joy and excitement when he’s happy, launching himself at Sadie Belle, making juicy and loud raspberries with his lips, and charming everyone he meets with his big smile and happy eyes!

  • He’s been on a few road trips, an airplane ride, been in three states and met many friends and family far away.  We hope to have those photos posted in the next couple days!  (We took an obscene amount of pictures so it has taken time to get through them.)
  • Believe it or not, the once-great eater is now very picky.  The doctor encouraged us to keep trying a greater variety of solids and he should be eating 3 meals a day now!
  • He is becoming very affectionate and will “hug” your neck when you hold him.  He also likes to kiss and slobber so I keep a burp cloth handy.
  • He plays a lot which includes picking things up, turning them around, switching hands and (always) putting the toy in his mouth!  He still loves to splash and play in his tub, to be outside watching the trees and jumping in his “cube.”  His cousin Avery said, “he go CRAZY!”  watching him get so excited he screams and jumps for a minute solid.Reid in his cube.
  • This baby LOVES his puppy!  She comes over to check him out a couple times a day and lets him pet her.  She still gets nervous around him, but that’s probably a good thing!  :) Reid loves to pet his Sadie Belle

    Six Months Old!

    Reid is six months old today!  He’s been keeping us very busy lately and we haven’t had much time to post.  We are too busy enjoying our little guy! 

    We have his six-month check-up tomorrow so we’ll update everyone on his stats then.  Until then, here’s a pic from his first swing at our neighborhood park.Reid's first swing at the park, 9-27-09

    We’ve been bad bloggers lately.  We know.  We’ll get it together and be back on track!

    We recently went to Cleveland and Erie to visit our family.  Jer came home early while Reid and I stayed for an extra week.  We saw so many friends and family and had a great time!  Pictures and stories from our visit are coming very soon.

    For now we are enjoying being home together as a family and getting back into our routine. 

    Jer’s morning time with Reid – check.   Coffee – check.   Sadie chasing squirrels in the backyard – check.   Mid-morning naptime – double check!

    It’s good to be home.
