Happy Birthday to Me

December 16, 2013

At least that was what Wesley was thinking when he saw his birthday cake. His eyes got as big as saucers and he made a bee line for it. I thought for sure he was going to be shoving it in his mouth, devouring it. But instead, he was dainty and gentle, taking his time. First he chewed on the candle for a little while, then he sat down and started taking tiny bites of frosting. At one point, he even gave a little “mhhhmmm!”

No worries, he still succeeded in getting it all over the place! In his toes, on his belly, up his nose and in his ears! Cake was shared by all!

Naked Baby

September 6, 2013

Little Wesley was more than willing to show off his naked parts, and with all his crawling and moving around, he definitely showed them all off! There was no slowing Wes down..he went right, he went left, he went from sitting to crawling in the blink of an eye.

Although frequently on the move, he was good at glancing back at me and making eye contact with the camera! He definitely has the celebrity pause for the paparazzi look down!

Chubby Cheeks!

January 8, 2013

At birth, Wesley weighed in at almost 8.5 pounds. Given that he only measured in at 19.5 inches, his good healthy weight made for some excellent chubby cheeks, arms and thighs!

I’m sure the chubbiness is just going to keep coming. Wesley is a great eater…chugging down bottles right and left!

Now, he just needs to learn how to sleep through all the commotion that comes along with having an older brother! Wesley was very sensitive during his session, quick to startle and very opinionated about the location of his hands. If his hands were not near his face, he was not going to cooperate…no ifs, ands or buts!
