So much has happened!!

Well, it's been a little over a month since my last post and so much has happened since then!! Mitchell has been able to sit up by himself for a little over a month now. This makes it nice for us because it gives him another way to play with his toys and keep him entertained. He loves sitting up because it makes him feel like a big boy and like he is in the middle of everything that's going on...which is where he loves to be!!!




We went for his six-month check-up right before Thanksgiving and we were told that he can now eat meats and start trying to drink from a sippy cup! He also had swollen top gums and we were told that we should be expecting his top two teeth within weeks. He is still staying in the 90th %ile in height (27 inches) and weight (19.6 lbs). A big, healthy boy!!! If you look very closely in the picture below, you can get a glimpse of his two bottom teeth. He doesn't show them very often, so catching a picture with them in it is tough!




We are now working to get Mitchell on a breakfast, lunch, and dinner schedule. He has done pretty well with this routine so far. I'm pretty sure he is a bottomless pit because we usually have to cut him off. I am frightened to think about what future grocery bills will look like when he starts getting older!



On a sadder note, Mitchell's great-granddad, PaPaw Reid, passed away about a week before Thanksgiving. We are so appreciative of all of the thoughts and prayers that we received during that time. We are also so grateful that Mitchell got to visit with PaPaw Reid on Halloween. He will definitely be missed, but we take great comfort in knowing that we will get to see both of Mitchell's PaPaw Reids shining through Mitchell as he grows up.
Hopefully it won't be as long in between posts. I will try to keep you updated more often because Mitchell is changing everyday!!!

The Bumbo Seat!

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!

Mitchell's in deep thought about something...
