We got good news this week. We had another appointment with the pediatrician and Wesley gained 9 ounces in two weeks. It’s just slightly under the expected 1 ounce per day but it’s not so little that they’re concerned. He’s just a tiny, healthy peanut. Yay!

Other than that this week was pretty relaxed. We went over to my brother’s house at the end of the week and had a cookout.


We watched my nephews and my grandma in the lake but decided Wesley is a bit too young to participate in the swimming himself.

We had a nice time visiting with everyone and relaxing though.

We needed the relaxation after the car ride over there. Poor guy has decided that he hates the car and sometimes me singing to him works. But other times the only way he’ll stop screaming his ever loving brains out is if we stop the car completely and he has a calming nursing session.


I love the nursing but it’s pretty frustrating that it takes two to three times as long to get anywhere lately.

In other news, toes are still extremely fascinating.


As are books all of the sudden.


You think he’s trying to tell me something?


I don’t take too many pictures. Hush.


This is how Joel calms Wesley down when I’m away. I think his favorite person might be mirror baby.


And last photo, just because his smile is the best in the whole world.
