A New Stage

Tonight wasn't just a new stage for Reid, it was a new stage for our whole family.  Reid sat at the table while we ate dinner.  Not in his bumbo on the floor, not in one of our arms, but in his OWN booster seat.  At the table.

He's not eating yet, but (ha ha, Mitchell hates "yet but" people or was it but yet people? anyway,) it's easier to eat our dinner in peace if he's at eye level with us and we're hands free.  Plus I read you should get them used to their booster seats before you start them on solids.

I can't really explain why it felt so different, but it did.  For nearly 5 years now it's just been the two of us sitting around our table, but tonight our table was almust full.

Each day with Reid makes my heart even fuller.
And for your humor, Reid and his dad played with the box for desert.

That is the cutest photo of my baby! Just needs some hair to twist and one up his nose! He is so dang cute and growing up way too fast! Can hardly wait to see him, and his mom and dad. Mom

My heck -- I had to check twice to see if it was Reid or Ben crawling in the box. That boy is big!!! What a cutie. Like your Mom, I recognized those fingers in the mouth and wondered if he wouldn't soon be sticking one up his nose!!
Love, Pa
