Reed is one month old!


Reed is one month old today! (and boy does that hurt my heart!) I cannot believe one month ago we were in the hospital having just met him only to find out his little lung was broken. This has probably been one of the hardest months of our entire lives, but we’re so grateful it has a happy ending.

Reed, it hurts mommy’s heart that your little life is already passing so quickly. We had such a rough start and so many things surrounding your birth were devastating to me. But, the MOST important thing is that you are healthy and here with us and I’m SO grateful for that and for YOU!

You are an easy going little guy. You like to eat and are a good eater. We have had our fair share of struggles trying to get this nursing worked out. Some days have been great and others not so great. We’re still trying to figure out just what works for us and I have no doubt we’ll get there soon. When you do have a bottle and we stop to burp you, you get REALLY mad and start screeching. It’s quite comical and I love to see your lip poke out and you get really angry. You are a happy boy when it comes back again!

You have gotten to where you take really good naps during the day and you sleep very well at night also! Depending on what time you go to bed, you either wake up once or twice to eat and then you are typically up around the time Daddy and Ava are getting ready to go to school.

Your sister adores you! My favorite thing is that she likes to come up to you and say “Hi Reed! There’s Ava!” I guess she has heard us say that to you so that’s what she says. She also talks to you in a high pitched voice. She loves to let us know when you are crying and she loves your “teeny, tiny toes and fingers”. You are a lucky guy to have such a great big sister and I cannot wait to see how you two grow to love each other.

Your Daddy adores you too! He is so excited to have a son to share things with! You are so blessed to have such a hands on daddy who does SO many things for you already. I love watching the two of you together and know that you will grow up a lucky little boy because of him.

Reed, you wear 0-3 month clothes and Size 1 diapers. We have no idea how much you weigh but you are growing. You have biggest, prettiest blue eyes. I hope they stay that way forever!

Your birth day was one of the hardest/saddest days of my life little guy. I’m still sad we didn’t get to do all the normal baby just born things and have pictures and let people meet you. But I’m so grateful you are here and healthy. Our family life has definitely not been the same since you arrived and it won’t be again but that’s ok – we are so happy to have you as a part of us and cannot wait to see what kind of little boy you are!

Happy one month birthday, little man! We love you so much!
