Baby Reed

Mmmm…that new baby smell!  Ahhh…those chubby legs!  Grrr…those interrupted nights!  Welcome little baby Reed!

We are so happy to have a beautiful little son to add to our family.  He is such a happy & content little guy…which makes me sooo happy and content!  When I pick him up in the mornings and he gives me that huge smile…that’s a feeling that no amount of caffeine can give me!  His looks are changing everyday…so for now it’s hard to say who he looks like.  But in my eyes…he is the cutest baby around!

I had forgotten all those new baby things…like holding in a cough or sneeze so you don’t wake the baby…praying that you hit every green light so the car doesn’t stop and the baby stays sleeping….pretending that spit up and saliva on my shirt is a new fashion accessory…and staring in amazement that something soooo beautiful can be trusted in my arms.

I was nervous of how Dre was going to react…but its been incredible to watch this sweet bond form between the two of them.  Reed always has a huge smile for Dre and loves to sit and watch him play cars.   Dre always makes a beeline for Reed as soon as he hears a squeak and loves ‘helping’ burp him or push him in the swing.

I love my 2 sons and right now they require my full attention.  So I’ve decided to take a bit of a break from the blog. We started the blog as a fun way to share our life and photos…and right now I’m just finding it to be another thing on my list of things to do. So…for now I will be an ‘editor at large’.  However…we DO have something planned to fill my place…so keep checking back!

Sometimes life gets busy and stressful. And in those times its nice to stop and find a few simple things that make your heart smile. Here are a few of mine from this past week.

Baby Dre is O-N-E! This has been both the longest and shortest year of my life…but it is still hard to believe that the first year has passed. We have a happy healthy little man who keeps us entertained every minute of the day.

I saw the idea for these photographs on Pinterest and knew immediately that I HAD to try this with Dre. I know I’m completely biased…but I think he is ADORBS!
