Reed is a big 8 weeks old. He is such a happy boy now that his wonderful medicine is working. He started holding his rattle for short times, it is too cute. He went to Piper Rose's 1st Birthday party at the water park on Saturday and then came home and watched football with Daddy while Mommy went shopping with Shannon.
Hi all, I am writing as Reed is actually sleeping. He has continued his poor little fussy self. I took him to the Dr. on Wed. and the Dr. thinks he has acid reflux. She started him on some meds. and we will see if those are helpful. I sure hope so, he is really feeling yucky. She also mentioned for us to start using his Bumbo seat, so we gave it a whirl the pictures describe what happened to a T. I had to add the other picture, because it is my favorite look, A HAPPY BABY. (I don't see that look much these days, so I enjoy the few I do get.) Oh and he weighed 10.8 lbs. He has also gained several new rolls this week. Smiles and pulling out my hair, Katie
Reed is 7 weeks old. This past week was a bit of a challenge with the little man. He has become so aware of his surondings that getting him to go to sleep during the day is hard. So napping was not his forte this week. Hopefully this time period has passed. Reed went to his first wedding reception on Friday, and was the hit of the party. We didn't do much else this week due to the fact that I didn't think people would want to be around us in our fussy state.
Now a note about Reed's PJ's. The pj's that Reed is wearing in these pictures I bought in the Fall of '05 before we were even trying to start a family. I was out shopping and of course couldn't pass them up with all the doggie bones on them. I hide them in my bedside table from Nick, becasue I was going to use them as part of the surprise for Nick when I was prego. (But that didn't happen) As most of you know it was a long time before we did become pregnant, so these Pj's had began to haunt me. Every time I saw them I was reminded that we had no baby. At times I was going to get rid of them, but then would hold on to them anyway. And I am so glad I did. SO now 3 years later they are being worn by our angel. I just had to share this, because he is about to out grow them and they will once again be put away. (Until his brother or sister gets to wear them).
Reed is 6 weeks old. Today we took Reed to the doctor again. (Because we are new parents and worry about everything). Well the big news about the apt. is that he weighed 9.6 lbs. That is right he gained 1 pound and 3 onces in 5 days. On the way to lunch we stopped and took some pictures in the sun flowers at Shelby farms. They were much prettier before the rain we had last night, but it was still fun. Oh and a sleep update: Reed slept for 2 five hour sets last night, yeah! Enjoy the pictures of the HUGE kid.
Dr. Butler and her new grand baby Aunt Lisa Lov'n on her baby. Today Reed went to school. He was so excited to meet all the people who were talking to him for 8 months. We spent the whole afternoon at the school. I had originally just gone to have lunch and then go, but to say the least I was there until 4:45. (Just like in the olden days.) Reed and I helped the teachers get ready for school next week. It was great for me to get OUT of the house and talk to GROWN ups for a change. A part of me really wishes I was at school preparing my own classroom. I just love what I do soooo very much. I will miss my co workers and the kids so very badly.
Howdy, we are the McKinney's , Nick, Katie, and Reed. We also have a couple of four legged family members; Daisy, Hemingway, Schultz and Hadley. We have been married for 6.5 years.
