Reid Catherine

Monday, November 12, 2012 Reid Catherine made her debut at 8:56 am weighing in at 7 lbs 10 oz and 19 1/2 inches long.

After nearly 3 years I now know what it feels like to have a child that looks like me!  Like I actually took part in the birthing & gestating process.   I feel like I have the ability to say.... Allow myself to introduce myself...

This is me on March 10, 1980
This is Reid on November 12, 2012

Here are a few more of Sweet Reid just to show you how snuggly she is.

Then of course big brother Dr. Hill was there when daddy brought Reid out to meet everyone.

My sweet little family

Then this picture is pretty much how Hill has been about her since she came.  She doesn't really exist.  We aren't worried and we aren't pressuring him.  He kissed her on the head once or twice when provoked but to date has not held her because she is "too heavy for me to hold."  I just hope he comes around before it's time to take their Christmas card photo.

Overall we are all doing well.  I will update as soon as I have the energy.  Hill and Reid are on two different sleeping schedules and I'm one tired mama.

You look so similar! Reid and Hill are adorable. Nice family photo. I am sure that Hill will love Reid.
