Smiling and sitting

OK, so I'm going to say that Wesley is officially sitting. He still tumbles occasionally, but that's mostly when he gets excited.

I tried to show Dan this morning, however Wesley was so wiggly and excited he couldn't sit still.

I finally got a Wesley smile on camera.

Normally when I pull the camera out he gets really serious and stares at it intently, thus no smile.

Very sweet.

Wesley is so good at sucking his thumb now, he can do it while pushing himself up with one arm.

Of course, here's the young man himself.

No post would be complete with out Mr. Quinn.

OK, so here's the sitting. And yes, he did topple at the end :).

And some chatting.

Love you Wes!

Happy Easter

Wesley was sleeping for this one. Too bad.

Here's the Easter egg hunt.

Yay! Hello.

I put Quinn and Mary's initials on their eggs with 1-15 and had them line them all up when they were finished. I tried to make the fun a bit educational.

Wesley and Haley talking. Haley really likes Wesley. Or at least the cloths I put him in. She grabs for the ducks and the dogs on his outfits.

Quinn figuring out the numbers on his eggs.

Joey going after his eggs.

Quinn finally lined his up with the help of Tia Sarah and Auntie Karra.

Happy Easter everyone, and daddy. We love you all.

Wesley doesn't smile at anyone the way he smiles at Quinn. Wes watches Quinn so intently, it is really so sweet.

Feel the love!

I just thought this was a funny little face. Happy 4mnth birthday my little man.

It was a half smile that I didn't catch fast enough.

Look at how long.

Hello my boys.

And they're spent!

No good title

So we had Sarah's baby shower yesterday. I don't know about Sarah, but I thought my little sister did a great job with it. We are going to be welcoming Sarah and Gordon's daughter Tahirih at the end of May beginning of June.

Here's what she looks like now, about 6 weeks from due date. So why am I the only one in my family who turns into a barn when I'm pregnant, not that I want my sisters to get huge, but...

Anyway, don't tell Sarah I did this, but I'm posting this picture for posterity sake.

I don't think we will ever again see Sarah with a bow on her head as I believe it has only ever happened once before!! OK, on to the boys. Here's Quinn showing Wesley how to play with those pop up toys at grandmas house.

Stopping for a funny face break. Wesley watching Quinn.

Very intently, but yes the eyes do occasionally blink.

Little bald head

I've known people who have really lamented the fact that their children weren't born with hair. I have to admit, after Quinn, I was very surprised that Wesley wasn't born with hair. But I also have to admit, I can't resist rubbing his little bald head. It's so soft and sweet and precious I can't help myself. So perhaps it's because he's a boy, but I really don't mind the lack of hair. Wesley continues to be a very sweet little boy. He is cuddly and very content. Most of the time he just stares at the world. This is pretty much what he does. He is very close to sitting. He sleeps for 7-8 hours at night before waking up, so nice. He's reaching for and grabbing what he wants and he's teething like a maniac. He is doing great!

Good bye pack n play, hello crib

So Quinn found a mask from his 3rd birthday party and I couldn't resist taking the picture. It just looks so cute. So here's Quinn giving me his best scowl. And then his best smile. So, on to Wesley. At 2 1/2 months I moved him into 6th cloths, which I really should have done before that. I am about to move him into 9mth cloths. He is so big. He is still 95th percentile for height and weight. As of March 25th Wesley was 16lb 10oz. He gained 1 lb 9 oz in 3 weeks. He is a tank. Well, because of his weight I can no longer put him in the bassinet part of his pack n play. So, time for a crib. Drop side cribs have now been made illegal, giving me just the excuse I needed to buy Wesley his own crib. We had everything we needed for Wesley since I kept all of Quinn's things, however, I thought it would be nice for Wesley to have some of his own things. I know that's not necessary, I did just fine with hand-me-downs. But, I couldn't resist. So, here's his new crib. Wesley started giggling on Sunday. He had laughed a couple of times, but I got him to flat out giggle on Sunday. I love it. He is ticklish on his sides and I was tickling him, this time instead of his typical smiles I got giggles!!! He can also hold his hands together and play with his fingers. He is teething like mad, and can actually sit unsupported for several seconds at a time. Yeah Wesley. He still sleeps a ton, I will try to get more pictures of him soon.
