Vote for Wes!
Steve and I each voted 2x, but we don’t plan to be the parents that vote over and over again. Saw the contest in a magazine and thought, ‘why not?’.
He was laying with his belly on the Boppy when I went to get a drink…look where he was at when I got back:
We used Baby Stats on Wii Fit Plus last night and he was weighing in at about 18lb2oz. From past experience, it’s only a couple ounces off, so he’s probably between 17lb14oz and 18lb even.
We went to a free Gymboree Play & Learn class today. It was the level 1 class (0-6m) and there were only 2 babies there, Wes and a cutie named Forest, he was probably 3 months old. Wes just wanted to sit and put everything in his mouth and was done about 5 minutes before class was over.
The lady running the class offered to let us come and try the level 2 class for 6-10 month olds since he is a bit advanced for the level 1 class. She was impressed with how well he sits up and his trunk and neck/head strength. A couple ladies at the babywearing party said the same thing and they had 5 and 6 month olds…it’s nice hearing good things about your child. 🙂
Yesterday we went and exchanged some clothes from Grandma & Grandpa Perry at Carters. The 9m size fits, but probably won’t last more than a couple weeks so we got 12m size- yikes! Also got him a pair of BabyLegs at Little Kisses Boutique so his legs won’t get red when wiggling around the floor since he won’t stay on his playmat.
The biggest news is Wes slept in his crib the past 2 nights! No fussing when we put him down and he slept until 3 or 330, got up to eat, and then went right back to bed when he was done! Both mornings I’ve brought him to bed around 6 when he wakes up to eat and then we have gone back to sleep for a bit. Not sure what has changed, but we are very happy and well rested.
Went to a babywearing meet-up that I heard about through Babycenter.com. It turned out to be fun and I learned a lot about different carriers, including woven wraps in person (they’re gorgeous). I know I want a new linen ring sling for the summer, but now I also want this. It’s called a Babyhawk Oh Snap! and is wonderful (and expensive). I tried Wes in one and it was like he was a tiny newborn, I didn’t even feel his weight- and trust me, he’s weighty! I think it would be great for traveling this summer and we could avoid bringing a stroller because getting through airports is not going to be fun.
I’ll see what I can talk Steve into. 🙂
Rice cereal (doesn’t eat anymore)
Oat cereal (breakfast)
Avocado (not a fan)
I had a coupon, so I picked up some Gerber jarred food. It’s their Nature’s Select type and is just veggies and water, no additives. I, once again, learned why I don’t like jarred purees- runny and messy! Wes enjoyed them though and ate the whole 2.5oz container for lunch. I think we’ll stick with making our own food, he does better eating when the food is thicker.
Once again, I forgot and taped a video sideways…make you have the sound on, he is giving his thoughts on green beans- with a little toot at the end.
we found out we were expecting!
I went to the doctor to see about getting something for a horrible sinus infection and my world was changed! After I left, the fact I could be pregnant was stuck in my head. I ended up at CVS and got some saline solution (for my sinus infection), a 2-pack of tests, and a bag of mini York peppermint patties. 🙂
I came home, this was around dinner time, and took the test. 2 lines came up and I kept staring and looking and making sure I read the directions correctly. I about freaked out, everything was blurry and I almost fell down the stairs going to get my cell phone to call Steve. Steve was still in Canton at this time, so I called him and he was just as shocked!
In the end, I took 3 tests over the following 2 days- all quickly turned positive. I thought I was about 7 weeks along on 5/11, but when I went to the OB on 5/18, I was only 6w4d, so the day I took the first test I was 5w4d. Yeah, who knows when I would have figured out I was pregnant if I didn’t get the sinus infection. I didn’t have morning sickness, I was just tired- which I attributed to being the end of the school year.
