No official weight, but I put him on the scale with me and he’s about 14 1/2lbs. That would mean 2lbs gained in 4 weeks which is normal and keeps him slightly above average for overall weight.
From sitting against a pillow to laying down (not the best video)
All he really wanted was his hand..
Went shopping for new clothes for Wes, not because I thought he needed a cute new outfit, but because hardly anything fits! Most of his 6, 6-9, and 9m stuff is for spring/summer! We went to JCP yesterday to use up a gift card from Aunt Becky & Uncle Kenny and got some new knit pants and a couple shirts. Hopefully that will hold him over until May. I just hope all the summer stuff I bought on clearance last year will fit when it warms up!
Today started off well, Wes slept soundly and late (7:30) and he was in a good mood this morning. Amy and I decided to meet up at Chick-fil-a for lunch and it was going okay for about 20 minutes and then he started SCREAMING. Nothing would calm him, I took him outside and it got better so I decided to leave. We got home and he’d finally eat, so I think it was the noise of the restaurant that got to him.
I had just put the sd card in to pull off the thumb sucking pic, when I saw him doing this- he is now grabbing for the toys on his play mat! He has actually grabbed the ring again and is holding it right now. 🙂Steve and I are going out alone tonight for the first time since Wes was born. Janice, who started as my long-term sub and is now my replacement for the rest of the year, is coming over to watch him (and Quinn- she’s going to go crazy for a new visitor).
EDIT: Wes did well, he only cried a little bit. Thank you so much, Janice!! 🙂
Next up: Tennessee
Wes and I went over to the Kanareks’ Friday afternoon and he got to use Joshua’s jumperoo and he loved it. So we decided to get Wes’s Easter git a little early and we bought his Baby Einstein jumper today! He is a bit small for it, but in the next month it will be great. While Steve put it together, we watched basketball and played, he was actually holding his toy very well.
FYI: Wes is wearing a 6 month outfit today that is only a little big, if he keeps this growth rate up his summer clothes aren’t going to fit!
