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. He's getting his baby chub, and it's so cute. I'm glad he's growing! His 0-3 month clothes are getting too small already. I'll have to go to the resale baby store to get some 3-6 month ones because we don't have many things for him to wear. I guess if all else fails he can wear girl stuff. ;) He's actually starting to drool, so we're wondering if he's teething already. It would be super early! He also spits up a lot some days and not much on others. Last night he was really really fussy, and then he slept terribly. He's been fussy today too, and we're not sure what's wrong. Hopefully it will just get better and we'll sleep more tonight. He's been in his bassinet every night since last Thursday and doing really well for the most part. I remember having to rock Ruby to sleep for a long time before she would sleep in it, but Reid can usually fall asleep in it just with the paci on his own. That makes it nice. Here are some photos from our week!
Ruby's had some funny quotes this week:
"I'm doing a great job, Mom."
"I'm going for a walk. To Wisconsin. To go find Uncle Randy."
We took a walk to the park on Saturday while Andy was doing iServe with our church (and we visited him while he was painting too). It was nice weather. Since then it's been raining on and off, so we haven't gotten as much outside time.
Ruby likes the tunnel. And rocks.
Ruby took this picture of Aunt Becca's new dog Joanna. She came over to visit on Saturday evening.
Sleeping peacefully in his bassinet.
These two like each other.
Ruby sits with us in church for the singing and likes it. She gets shy when people talk to her though, I think because of the amount of people.
I went to Costco during second service with Reid. Ruby helped carry in the butter and did great!
Ruby likes to clip him in.
Playing together in the crib.
We went to the high school Out of School Bash on Sunday night. Ruby had fun and enjoyed sharing a watered down Italian Soda with Mommy.
On Monday we went to Word of Mouth Bistro for brunch. The wait was so long we put our names in and went to play at a park for a little bit.
Reid slept through it.
Ruby drew Reid at the restaurant! I'm amazed.
After brunch we rushed back for swimming lessons, but we were a little late.
No matter, Ruby got special attention from the instructor's daughter. :)
Then she helped me clean out the chicken coop.
Ruby likes to shower after swim lessons. She did really good in the 3-5 class, and they said to stay in that one if we do any more lessons this summer!
Such a sweetie.
She filled her back pack to go to "work" (at Sunday School).
Ruby's 29 month photo! I can't believe she'll be 2 1/2 next month.
We went to the library today to see Reptile Man and all of his snakes and lizards. It was pretty fun.
The huge Burmese Python! Ruby liked the little snake the best.
She likes to climb. But then she made the chair into a slide.
