7 weeks: 29 months

Reid is 7 weeks old, and Ruby is 29 months old today! Our sweeties are growing up so fast. Reid weighed 12lbs 2oz at our last midwife appointment on Tuesday. He's not quite as big as Ruby, but close.

We're starting to get ready for our big trip south. Andy's heading to Mexico and me and the kids are heading to my parents' house, camping, and then to Wisconsin. It should be a fun trip, but I'm a little apprehensive at the same time. Camping with two little ones and traveling in general will be interesting. I've been having a hard time the last few weeks be…
