Happy 4 Month Birthday, Babies!!

Can you believe it?? 4 months old! When I think about how much our lives have changed in the last 4 months I am amazed. I am constantly amazed at the amount of love that I have for our two precious babies. I can't imagine loving them any more than I do...I'm not sure that it would be possible! Reid and Louisa have forever changed our lives and our hearts for the better. Looking back to the 3 1/2 weeks that they spent in the NICU, we are so extremely blessed to have our children and their health. So many other babies stay in the NICU for much, much longer and come home with different challenges. Our babies are completely healthy and besides Louisa being small, you would never know that they were born 7 weeks early. Everyone that we talk to about our babies seems to have the same comment, "You are so blessed" and they are sooooo right! With each little smile, coo and even the cries, we are constantly reminded that we are so blessed! The last 4 months have been such a blessing to watch Reid and Louisa change and grow. We are so excited to see what the next few months have in store for us! We are truly blessed each and every day to have our two beautiful children!

I thought I would share some things about each of the babies...

  • Likes chewing on his hands
  • Likes laying on Daddy's chest and putting his hand up to touch his goatee
  • Imitates us when we stick out our tongues...he thinks this is really fun
  • Has the sweetest smiles...always gentle and calm
  • As I'm writing this, Reid just giggled for the first time!


  • Giggled for the first time yesterday! So cute and she was absolutely thrilled with herself! Louisa's voice has gotten bigger this week. She's really trying it out to see what she can say/do.
  • Also likes chewing on her hands
  • Likes to watch the lights on the TV
  • Might be little, but nothing she does is little! When she smiles, she does it with her whole body / face...she could make anybody smile!

Reid and Louisa have started noticing each other more. We try to sit them in front of each other often. This week they were smiling at each other :) It was so precious! Both babies have started batting at their toys and are more intrigued by them. The weekends are everybody's favorite because Mommy gets to spend 2 whole days with the babies!!

I know, all these words and no pictures. Sorry! I'll get some new pics up this week.
