Reed-8 Months

Reed turned 8 months old today. I can't believe he's getting so big so fast. Seems like just yesterday that we saw his sweet little face for the first time. He is the happiest little baby-he smiles all the time. He's so easygoing. I guess he figures he has to be with 3 brothers and sisters. He has 2 teeth and has decided that eating big people food is more fun than baby food. So far he likes waffles, banana, cheerios, veggie sticks (thanks Jenny for that idea!), and cheese. He has 3-4 bottles a day and has started to get the hang of the cup.  He's becoming more and more mobile and trying so hard to crawl. He's my little angel baby!

Too Much Swimming

This is what they looked like after almost 5 hours of swimming.

Reed at 7 Months

Even though he'll be 8 months in a week or so, I wanted to write down Reed's goings-on for his 7 month. The day after he turned 7 months his first tooth popped through. The next week, his second one did. He sits up well all by himself, and has started army crawling all over the floor. Occasionally he'll get on all fours and rock, but no crawling yet. At 6 months he weighed 20 lbs. and was 27 inches long. He's wearing mostly 12 month clothes and size 3 diapers. We're phasing out nursing and he's taking a couple bottles a day. He loves to eat and we're just starting to give him tiny bits of real food.  He's growing up way too fast!

Time For Puffs!

Now that Reed has 2 teeth, we've started a few bits of "real food." He tried some puffs and banana the other day. He hasn't quite developed his pincer grasp so he had a little trouble getting them in his mouth but when he did he liked them!

Sprinkler Park

While Jack was away in Winona last week, we took the girls to the sprinkler park. They were really excited to go, but once we got there they really didn't care for it that much. Ella said the water was too cold.
"I'm gonna lay on the table and 'tend like I'm a cake."

Every Little Girl Wants to be a Princess

And on Thursday, my girls thought they were. We headed downtown for dinner and we found one of the Cinderella carriages. The carriage driver kept referring to them as princesses and that just thrilled them to no end. Kate told him, "we got big bows so that means we're a princess." Don't know where that came from. Now that they know about the carriages we're in trouble!
Sweet sisters.

At the fountain at the Peabody. 

Pool Time!

We were finally able to hit the pool at GAC over the weekend. Needless to say, the kids were thrilled. Reed loved it too. As hot as it's been already here, looks like we're going to be at the pool a lot!

Just Some Random Pictures

The boys and I watched some of the royal wedding together. Don't think they were as excited as I was.
My handsome date for the Mother's Day luncheon.
Little miss OCD must make sure every single space is colored.

Mother's Day

On Mother's Day my family came to visit. We went to brunch, then went down to gawk at the river flooding downtown and rode the trolley. It was a great day!

The Big Three

I know he's getting to be a big boy when he rides in the grocery cart.....
