5 Months & Some Randomness

Our little boy is 5 months old today! I can not believe it has been 5 whole months!!! He broke into a horrible rash yesterday so I took him to the doctor. Apparently he had an allergic reaction to something--still don't know what. That is not so comforting but the doctor said it wasn't serious. We did find out that he now weighs 18lbs 11 oz. That explains why he is not skipping any feedings--not even at night!! A couple of weeks ago he slept through the night and I thought, "ahh, here we go"--then he quit even skipping one feeding. Wrong way Reid!
But how could I ever get mad at that face??? Reid, at 5 months, you have just stolen our hearts--including Lilly's. She loves you and today even gave you her paci while she went and found herself another one. Just so we remember in the future, this is her ultimate act of love!!! I am actually still a little in shock over the whole incident.
You have the best little personality! You are soooo laid back and patient. Sometimes you will start to fuss and I need to go get something before I can give you whatever it is that you are needing and I will say "just one second buddy" and you actually calm down and give me a second! You smile all the time and you smile with your WHOLE body. It is the sweetest thing. You also giggle and coo constantly. You are so alert and watch everything very intently. You do not like to lay flat on your back--you are always trying to sit up so you do 100s of crunches a day. You are going to have a six pack before you are 6 months. Ha. You also do many different yoga positions. I.e. the swimmer position above.
You have two teeth. You have had them for awhile but you are still drooling all over the place. You wear bibs and still have to several wardrobe changes throughout the day. You spit up semi-frequently but it is getting better. You are generally always in a good mood. You sleep in your own bed and generally like to put yourself to sleep but the past few days you have let us rock you. This is great for when we are out and about and you need a nap. You stayed in the church nursery for the first time this weekend. Mommy hates leaving you with people she doesn't know but you don't seem to mind. You recognize Mommy and Daddy's voice and look for us. Today MoMo was holding you on the kitchen table and I bent over to pick something up and you practically did a back bend to keep your eye on me.
We fed you cereal for breakfast and before bed today. You eat it so good and you eat all that I feed you. I am hoping this helps with getting you to sleep a little longer at night! Fingers crossed!!! You loved eating it so much that Lilly thought that it must be really good and insisted on sharing with you. She made a disgusted face after every bite but just kept coming back for more. Haha. We love you so very much and can't wait to see what new tricks you will learn this month!
Somebody got a sucker today! I guess she thought she wasn't supposed to have it because ran to the corner with it.

All sticky--look at those hands and that precious little sticky face!
"It is sooo worth it Mom!"
Lilly was quite sensitive today and this was how she reacted any time she heard the word "no" today. She is very upset in this picture because Daddy told her to stay sitting (instead of standing) on the blow-up mattress.
She felt all better after she got to take her frustrations out through some wrestling.
Look at those beautiful eyes! I took this picture because of the little bowl she is eating out of. We got it at Wal-Mart. The top are these plastic pieces that come together so she can reach in and get her snack but she can't dump it all on the floor. Mommy tested--Mommy approved!!
This is a better picture of it. You can also see Lilly wiping her nose on her sleeve. I don't know where she learned this! I will grab a tissue to wipe her nose and she will run away and start rubbing her nose on her sleeve. Yuck!
These pictures were taken a couple of weeks ago at a playdate. Lilly is loving to play with other kids right now!! She cried when we went to leave a friend's house the other night because she was having so much fun!
I LOVE this picture!!!
Then, to close, tonight we are supposed to get some nasty weather and it has already started. The grass is all covered in ice! The ground is covered in ice as well. Once the ice is done, we are supposed to get lots of snow. It is looking like a 3 day weekend for most folks! I don't mind as long as we can keep our power! This time last year we had a huge ice storm and lost power for a couple of days--I do not wish to do that with two babies!!
That is all ice--I know it is hard to tell in this photo..but it is all ice!

BTW...wiping their snot on their sleeve is just an instinct they are born with. I am worried about the power too! We made it through last night though. Hopefully just snow now! Going to do a Christmas scrapbook today (not Sara Scott quality).

Your kids are adorable!! I loved seeing the pics of your daughter with the sucker...looks exactly like my how my 3 year old daughter, Olivia, would look!

Reid is growing up so fast! He is so handsome. I hope he is okay from his allergic reaction. Christian is really sensitive and has found out some allergys as an adult so I can sympathize.

Lilly is so cute with her sucker! And I love the picture of her hugging her friend from the playdate. Lillian still has a hard time sometimes saying goodbye to friends after playing.

Have a good weekend!
