Reid’s New Trick: Sitting and Waiting

When Reid woke up from his morning nap this is how I found him:The first time Reid sat up in his cribby.  He's quite proud of himself, don't you think?  10-16-09This morning was the first time he’s tried this particular trick in his cribby.  I bet he likes the new latitude and its probably only a matter of time before he figures out he can pull up.  (Oh, help me!)

He’s been scotching around for the past couple weeks –not crawling – but definitely scotching.  He’ll be on his hands and knees and push back up into a sitting position.  He’ll reach for a toy while sitting and then flop onto his tummy.  He’ll roll from back to front, then front to back. 

And as much as Daddy has tried to encourage him, and the private lesson from Ethan, he hasn’t crawled, yet.Ethan Martini gives Reid a lesson on crawling 10-6-09Reid is learning new “tricks” every day.  But still, Sadie Belle is not impressed.Sadie Belle can't figure out what the fuss is about with this noisey little guy! 10-6-09

Our little man is changing so quickly. You can bet he will be pulling himself up in his cribby soon. What a darling sight to come into his room and see a happy, smiling baby boy sitting there patiently. Can't wait to see him again. We miss all of you.

Awww! I LOVE the first picture. He's so darn cute. That must have been such a fun sight to see walking into that room. The last one of Sadie is hilarious :)

Love that picture in his cribby! Too cute!! He looks like he just might be thinking about doing something naughty which, knowing his parents, just isn't possible! :)

Love y'all!!
