Hi to Daddy in Uganda!

Just wanted to let you know what I've been up to. Mom is taking pretty good care of me, but I miss you lots. Lately I've been playing with new toys and hanging out with buddies. Grandma Garrett came to visit us and we had fun with her. I have to get my shots on Tuesday and Mommy is dreading that, but tomorrow we're going carseat shopping because I'm over 20 lbs now and too big for the one I have! There will be lots of changes when you get back, but I tell your picture goodnight every night before I go to bed and I'm ready to hug you when you get here in just 5 more days!


Mommy and I love you and we miss you!


Love,
Elias

Lately...

Our 4-month-old is growing like a weed...a weed on steroids even. He's scooting around, rolling over, babbling non-stop and overall keeping us entertained and in love. Here's another visual update!



This is how I discovered him this morning! He's a traveling man in his sleep.


Grandpa Garrett has him started early. Good grip, son.

New Tricks!

Here's a couple of video updates! NEW TRICKS!!! Rolling over, and reading with mom...

He loves storytime! Every night after his bath and before his bed time he gets to read. In the last couple of weeks he's become VERY interactive. He loves to feel the textures in his book, and even more so, he LOVES to turn the pages and even close the book! Man, he's growing fast!

Eye Heart You Son

Hey ya'll...Logan here. Just a short update on our beautiful son Elias Reid, who is 3 Months old now. I know that most people do the whole "weeks" thing, but that just seems weird to me. My son is 10 weeks, 26 weeks, I am 1,248 weeks. Also, baby clothes are separated by 0-3 month not 0-12 weeks, so it just seems to make sense. Anyway, Elias is doing SO well these days. He is huge and healthy and learning more "tricks" everyday! He grabs toys, tries to turn the pages of his books during storytime, and just started adding the most precious giggling noises to that beautiful smile of his. As he gets older, he begins to look more and more like his mother. He has Erica's eyes, and even more so, her eyebrows! For those of you who know my wife, you know what I'm talking about. Eli can tell me EXACTLY how he feels with a simple shift of one or both eyebrows. The other day he was really tired and I thought that I was being a VERY FUNNY dad. My son simply raised One of his eyebrows and gave me a look that said, "Really dad, your gonna do that right now?" Oh how I hope he uses his powers for good as he gets older...

Enjoy the pics, and thanks for keeping up with the Martins!
