We are going to be using this site mainly to keep you updated on Mitchell as he grows! We will also give other info about what's going on in the Reid household. This is an easy way for you to keep up with our daily and weekly events as well as watch Mitchell change and grow!
It is so hard to believe that Mitchell is already three months old!!! He is changing so much and continues to hit new milestones each week. Since our last post, he has already done so many new things. We can honestly say that he is now sleeping through the night. He takes his last bottle around 9:00pm and sleeps until 6:00am. We are so excited because this will help out tremendously when I go back to work after Labor Day. Mitchell is also very particular about where he sleeps now. When he is ready for a nap he wants to be laid down in his crib. We still want to rock him and hold him sometimes until he falls asleep, but he won't let us! He cries until we put him in his crib and as soon as he is laid down, he falls asleep! This holds true almost 90% of the time. It makes it great at bedtime, but difficult when we are visiting friends and family and he's ready to go to sleep!
Mitchell is also very eager to sit and stand up now. He will frequently grab our fingers and strain to pull himself to a sitting or standing position. He does not like to lay down when he's awake, he wants to be sitting or standing like a big boy! Because of this, we have found a new toy that he has taken interest in because he is able to stand up to play in it.
Mitchell has also developed the first signs of a tooth! We could hardly believe it because he is still so young, but he has one little point of a tooth barely sticking out over his bottom gums. Consequently, he is drooling alot more these days!
It is hard to believe how quickly Mitchell is developing. I am almost sad to go back to work because I feel like I'm going to miss so much! However, we are very excited about Mitchell's babysitter and the opportunity he will have to interact with other kids. We will try to continue to keep you updated on the many things that Mitchell is doing!
Mitchell has been paying attention to music and lights for a while now, so we decided to buy him a playmat that would keep him entertained. He really enjoys laying under the lights and music. He will coo and squeal along while trying to grab the animals that are hanging over his head. He has also grown very fond of one of his puppies. Each time he sees it he gets a big smile on his face and starts kicking his legs! We are having so much fun finding things that entertain him!
This was Mitchell's first visit with his new friends! Will Zuber and Evylee & Kenzlee Terry are going to be Mitchell's buddies...when he's old enough to sit up and play!
The Bumbo Seat!
We have discovered that Mitchell loves sitting up and seeing the world from a "big boy" point of view. His new Bumbo seat has quickly become one of his favorite things to do. He loves watching and listening to us talk to him while he's sitting up just like us!
Brad and I have been married a little over eight years. He works for TVA and I am a teacher. We have recently had a baby boy who we named Mitchell. Right now we are excited about where our lives are headed and we are working to be the best parents we can be. God has truly blessed us with everything that we have!
