2 weeks old

On Wedensday we ventured out a bit. I had to take REid to the doctor for a weight check he was 6lbs 14 oz. So he is gaining weight. Everytime I see our Doctor he looks at me with concern and asks if I am okay... Hmm could he remember when I showed up with Abby pretty much about to fall apart and left in tears? I told him I was fine we will see when Reid wakes up.

The girls both had Christmas parties at school. Which I did not get to attend trying to avoid exposure to germs on the little one. I told them to make sure they paid real good attention so they could give me a full report when they got home. I picjed up Abby first and asked her about her party and what they did. She responded I don't remember but we celebrated Jesus birthday not Christmas.
Bella on the other hand came home with a full report so I heard every last detail.

My long time friend Amanda was in town to see her fmaily for Christmas and she came by for a visit with her husband Matt. She got to see Reid and the girls. Bella and Abby wanted to go home with them. All the way to Baltimore. I was tempted to send them but than I would miss Christmas with them. Oh well.

We have a little Christmas shopping to do. We are going to drop all three kids off at my moms about 3 o'clock and head to Target. We have a 2.5 hour window to get down there and back before Reid wakes up hungry again.

Reid Joseph Chesnutt

At 0138 on Thursday December 4th, 32008 we welcomed Reid Joseph Chesnutt into the world.

It was a little crazy but we are all home and doing great. Just a little sleep deprived. The girls are in love with him and couldn't be prouder. We have to make a photo album for them to bring to school in the morning.

Isabella L. Chesnutt First Grade Toothless Wonder

It is offical.... after 1 1/2 years of trying and wishing and praying Bella lost her first tooth on Monday. Apparently she was the third person in her class that day to pull their own tooth. Although it wasn't the other two kids first tooth to loose. I think she watched them very closely and than said to herself, that she was not going home with that tooth still in her mouth.

Of course I was at work and didn't get to pick her up from school. She called me screaming at the top of her lungs with so much excitement that she lost her tooth. Than my mom brought her up to the hospital so I could see her. The child has not stopped smiling since she lost the tooth, and she looks in the mirror every chance she gets.

This innocent child was told by her Uncle BO that the going rate for a tooth was twenty dollars....She woke up this morning to five dollars and was perfectly happy with that. Thank goodness.

For some reason Blogger is not letting me upload pictures s o I will try again later.
