Six months old and a happy birthday!!

The happy birthday part of this message was to me!!! Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me. OK, on to the important men in this blog. So, Wesley is six months old, however, I am about to put him in 18mth cloths.

At six months old Wesley is sitting, rolling from front to back and back to front, babbling away (vowels and consonants), grabbing what he wants, switching it from hand to hand, eating solids, and is still off the charts for height and 95th percentile for weight. In other words he is doing incredibly well.

The doctor is very pleased and so are we. He is such a sweet baby and his personality is coming through now. He smiles at everyone! He is happy and content most of the time, as long as he's feed and slept. He is a really easy baby. He sleeps so well. He puts himself to sleep and sleeps from 8-5:30 eats and goes back to sleep for a while.

I love you Wesley, happy six months!!

All about the Grand kids

So Grandpa Alan is visiting from NC and Auntie Melihna and Mila are visiting from WA. So this post is all about the family. I think the next series of photos speaks for themselves. Thank you auntie Kristin for letting us have them.

This last one is somewhat existential!!

Here are five of the six grand kids eating dinner at Auntie Kristin's and Uncle Joe's

Wes and I finally arrived and completed the group.

Auntie Kristin and Wes!!

And grandma Kim and Wes. I love this picture!!!

I have been looking and looking for my camera, but to no avail. So here are some pictures from Karra's camera. Last Thursday I babysat for Haley and in the process gained a new apprecaition for twins!!!!!

Granted, I don't have to do this all of the time, so I didn't get as much of a feel for how much work it is. But I did come to understand how cute and fun it can be some times.

The two of them were so funny together.

Wesley is actually a little bigger than Haley, but being 2 1/2 months older than him, Haley is more mobil that Wes is.

So Haley would crawel over to Wes and start poking at him with her finger. Wes would grab her finger and try to eat it. It was so funny watching them interact with eachother.


In other Wesley news. At 4 1/2 months old Wesley weighed in at 19lbs (95th percentile) and was 28in (>95th percentile). Huge!!! I put him in 9mth cloths a week after that (mid may)appointment and into 12mth clothes three weeks later (this past weekend!!!). Again, huge. Wes is now rolling from front to back on a regular basis, however when he gets to his back he is a little stuck turtle :) He'll get there though. He is a really really good sleeper as well. He goes down around 8p and within the last three days is sleeping until 6:30-8a. Before that he was sleeping from 8p-5:30a. OK, just trying to keep it all documented for posterity sake. Take care everyone, thanks for continuing to be with us.
