Growing Boy

Wesley as a newborn in the hospital:

And Wesley this month for his portrait:

Wesley has been busy lately, just growing and growing!
And that's a good thing, considering that he will be six months old later on this week!

Clothes - Mommy had to clean out his closet and drawers again. Now we're into the 6 month and 6-9month clothes and up to size 3 in diapers.

Teeth - Wesley has also cut his first tooth in the last couple of days - the front left tooth on the bottom. We tried really hard to take a picture but it's just barely through the gum and it's hard to take a picture of something so small on something that likes to wiggle so much!

Food - We've tried several times to feed Wesley cereal, but so far his tongue keeps pushing everything out. He doesn't seem to be doing too bad on formula though and he can certainly suck down a 6-8oz bottle in no time flat.

Sleep - Ok, so he's still not sleeping though the night as much as we'd like, but we are getting longer stretches at times, as much as 6-7 hours with the occasional 10 hour night thrown in for good measure. We keep threatening to send him to train with his friend Emma who sleeps from 7pm to 7am the next morning.

Activity -
Wesley rolls over from back to tummy and tummy to back with no problems. He also manages to scoot around on the floor on his back - mostly he goes in circles - but he can really get around. He's really starting to enjoy toys, especially the ones that rattle and make noise. Wesley continues to be a very happy baby and loves to laugh and giggle and smile. He especially loves it when you make funny noises or faces, or when you clap. Clapping makes him very excited. He also loves to "talk" and when he gets going with his babbling, watch out!
