The Latest with Reid & Louisa

Reid & Louisa got to go visit Dr. Drake this week for their check up. At 14 1/2 weeks, Reid weighed 10 lbs 4 oz and Louisa weighed 6 lbs 11 oz. Reid is almost on the growth curve for a normal term baby while Louisa is still a good bit away from reaching the curve. Soooo...we're still adding polycose to Louisa's bottles which gives her extra calories so hopefully she can catch up to her big brother. Louisa is finally outgrowing her preemie clothes and at 15 weeks old, she has graduated to newborn size! Reid has been in newborn for a while and is almost in 0-3 month size. I'm glad they are both in the same size at least for a little while so they can wear their matching outfits!
What else are Reid & Louisa up to?? Both of them give us smiles constantly! There is nothing like their sweet little smiles to brighten your day! I think Louisa is already learning how to use her smile to wrap Mommy & Daddy around her little finger! If we aren't looking at her, Louisa will coo to get our attention then as soon as we look at her she cuts her eyes and flashes a huge smile. She really is just too cute! Reid's smiles are just so sweet and gentle...he just melts my heart every time he smiles at me.

Reid and Louisa are both enjoying "playing" more. They have a play mat with lights and toys that hang over it...Reid is starting to find his "play" voice (lots of inflection and squeals) so he lets us know when he is having fun on the mat. Louisa doesn't always enjoy the play mat, but she does seem to enjoy their "Bobbin' Kickin' Bear." They lay under the toy and when they kick the ball, it makes the bear's face move/light up and music plays. Both Reid and Louisa are starting to bat at toys hanging above them and even grabbing at them.

Louisa loves to stand up tall on our legs...she looks around with her eyes open wide and starts to pant when she gets excited. Reid also likes to stand up on our legs. When Reid stands up, he likes to tap one foot...Daddy says he is keeping the beat and maybe he'll be a drummer one day!

Here are some pics...hope they brighten your day!
