Everything is going well in our house!

Hi everyone!
Things are going well in our house. Everyone seems to be feeling better and just kinda getting into living life. The past week was William's 6 month well baby doctor's visit. He did extremely well with his shots. Cried a little, but was smiling by the time we left. Here are his stats...

Weight = 18lbs 8 oz (75%)
Height = 26 1/2 in (50%)

He gave us the ok for William to start having 3 meals a day, eating "real" baby food (not just cereal), and using a sippy cup. William has done really well eating his food. We have only been feeding him 2 times a day, but I think he will be ready for 3 soon.

In fact, today was his first time eating veggies - Green Beans! How do you think he liked it?




I was also lucky enough to get him rolling over on video! He has been doing it for a while now, but I just haven't been able to catch him until this morning!...





School is going well. I am starting to get back into work mode, but it is starting to get harder now that the school year is really underway. I am now having homework to grade, lesson plans to make, and parents to call on top of caring for the baby. It is a busy life, but I am loving it!

William's first taste of solids!

"OK Mom! I'm ready to eat. In fact, I'll start with my bib!"


"Ooo, I'm not sure about this cereal."


"Hey, I think I like this!"


"Yum! I ate the whole bowlful!"

William and his Grandpa


Here is a video with my Dad tickling William with his mustache. It is adorable!

Happenings in the Reed family = everyone is sick! William started it off last week, gave it to Benjamin, and then I had a bout with food poisoning from Wendy's. We are a bunch of sickies!! Lucky for me this is a 3 day weekend, so hopefully I will be better by Tuesday - which is Open House. William is feeling better - thank goodness!! He is back to his normal self and even eating all his bottles all gone! I guess he really wasn't teething because we still haven't seen a tooth. I guess it was just a cold. And, since our little boy is learning to share, he shared his cold with his daddy. Of course, Benjamin is a dedicated worker and didn't even take a day off of work (while I would have stayed home for sure!). The good news is that he is feeling better today too. So, I guess if I can start feeling better soon, the Reed Family will be all well!!

Another exciting happening is William's 6 month birthday is coming up soon. I can't believe my little boy is going to be 6 months old on Wednesday. Where has the time gone? We have his well baby doctor's appointment on the 17th and I think that is when we will get the go ahead to start him on his solids. A lot of people have given me advice about starting him earlier, but there was no rush. I'll make sure to post pictures of his first meal!!
