I think we figured out Wes’s big b-day/Christmas gift. We had talked about a train table/trains and I’ve been scouring Craigslist for a new-to-Wes one, but Costco had this in store ($120 if anyone is looking for one):
It combines Wes’s love of trains AND airplanes! So if I can’t find anything good on CL at the start of November, we’re going to ‘bite the bullet’ and buy new. It comes with a 100 piece train and track set and is good quality- can’t buy something flimsy that will break the 1st time Wes climbs on it, because I know he will!
In other news, we’re just prepping for Grammy’s visit on Thursday! Wes stayed busy with Steve playing yesterday while I cleaned. Hopefully once I clean it will stay mostly clean- pretty hard when he seems to put food in his pockets to spread throughout the house when I’m not looking. 🙂

Looks like we’ll have pirates this Halloween! Even though a friend let us try out a few of her boys’ old costumes, Wes is really attached to a pirate one we got from Walmart as our ‘back up’. And since Wes is going to be a pirate- so is Quinn!
Here they are last year as a spider and bee. 🙂
Now that the costume dilemma has been resolved, it’s on to figuring out what to get Wes for Christmas and his birthday. I already have lots of ideas!
Weight: ~32lbs (32lb7oz on Thursday with shorts and a shirt)
Head Circ: 20″ or so
Talking: He has had quite the verbal explosion the past few weeks and was more talkative the past 2 days than he’s ever been. 🙂
Mobility: He’s everywhere and climbs everything- same ol’, same ol’.
Likes: Airplanes, trains, cars, climbing, books, muffins, yogurt raisins, eggs, football, brushing his teeth
Dislikes: Sleeping, when his dad leaves for work, vegetables
**Picture to come later**
So we’re in the hunt for a Halloween costume and saw this at Target:
Wes about flipped out over it, but it’s $30, so it’s not happening. I can’t believe stuff that they’ll wear 1x is so pricey! I’ve been looking on Craigslist but no one is responding to my emails. Hopefully we’ll find something soon before all the good costumes are gone. (Our back-up is him being a knight since he has a foam sword, helmet, and shield)
