Reeves is 9 months old as of yesterday!
Last week he said his first word – Uh-Oh… for a while now when he drops a toy I say “uh-oh” and pick it up for him. So, last week while playing in his saucer he dropped a toy on the floor and looked at me and said “uh-oh” (without any prompting from mommy)! It is the cutest thing EVER!!! He definitely knows that it means: "oops, I dropped my toy – can you pick it up for me?" Now he says "uh-oh" everytime he drops something that he wants back.
Some of the other highs and lows we have had in the last few weeks:
- We spent a week back east visiting family – Reeves got to meet and spend time with Grandma Great Haney, Grandma Great Hinson, Granddad Great Hinson, and Aunt Marianne (back-up Nana) and Uncle Frank. Despite the fact that he did not sleep well while we were there (and therefore neither did we) he was in great spirits as usual.
- We spent our first Mother’s Day together at home (since we had just gotten home from NJ the day before) and it was wonderful! Then the following weekend Reeves and Daddy took Mommy to the Zoo to celebrate Mother’s Day. It was so much fun to walk around and see all the animals with Reeves.
- On the not so fun side… Mommy had to go back to work. It has been really hard, but it’s a little easier knowing that Daddy is home with Reeves (at least for the next 8 weeks). But, at least my job allows me to come in really early so that I can get off early and flex my schedule so that I have a day and a half off within a two week period… it’s not much, but it helps!
We have been together as a family of three for just over three month (three months, one week, and six days to be exact) and every moment is amazing! I am so in awe of the adoption process that brought us together as a family, it has been the most amazing journey… and we still have so much left.
So, happy 9 months little man! Mommy & Daddy love you so much and continue to realize every day how lucky we are to be your parents!!!
And because no blog update would be complete without pictures... I mean come on, I'm not stupid - I know that's why you came! :)
