Reading to my girl.
So sorry about the 70 photos on this post! Well, not really. I love them all. It's been quite a 2 weeks. From being huge pregnant to welcoming our little Reid. Ruby has been the best new big sister ever, she loves him. Today she was going outside, and she said, "I want a kiss first (to me). I want to kiss him. I yove you brother." So sweet. And when he was in his swing sleeping, she said, "Can you get him out? He cried a little bit." I love our kiddos so much.
Here are the pictures from the week before Reid was born:
We made a strawberry-rhubarb pie. It made a huge mess, but it was so good!
Eating a pie snack after nap.

She loves being naked. She always says, "I'm really naked!"

Playing with the bubbles in the bath. It got in her mouth.
What a sweetie.
Reid got a paci last night and liked it pretty well. He's been having fussy time in the late evenings, but swaddling has helped him go to sleep and stay asleep for a while! I think last night I got a 2 1/2 hour stretch, which was lovely. Only about 5 hours total, but still. :)
Reid was tongue tied when he was born, and Julia clipped his frenulum the day after. He had been having trouble latching, and had lost almost a pound, down to 7 lbs 14 oz. But after that he latched on just fine, and was up to 8 lbs 2 oz on day 3. Today at one week he weighed 8 lbs 13 oz at the Dr's office! Officially above his birth weight and doing great.
And then he got his first bath in a pink bath tub! Oh well. I'm sure he doesn't mind. :)
Ruby helped with his bath. He was not a fan and cried during most of it.
