4 months old

Wesley is 4 months old today. He weighed a little over 15 pounds 2 weeks ago so he is probably almost 16 pounds now. He still sleeps through the night most nights. Sometimes he gets up for a bottle around 4 but goes right back to sleep as soon as he is finished with the bottle for a few more hours. Wesley drinks 6, 5 ounce bottles a day. He smiles all of the time and notices everything. Wesley has been doing gymboree for the past 1 1/2 months and just went on his first plane ride to Disney World. He is wearing 3-6 month and 6 month clothes but is almost in the next size and size 2 diapers.

Wesley's 4 Month Well Visit

Wesley had his 4 month appointment yesterday even though he won't be 4 months old until October 29th. His 2 month visit was when he was 6 weeks and 1 day so it has thrown off his appointments a little. Wesley weighed 15 pounds, 2 ounces and is 25 1/2 inches long...75th percent for both weight and height. The pediatrician suggested adding oatmeal to 3 or 4 bottles a day. He said to call in a month about what cereals and fruits to start feeding him. Wes had 3 shots and the rotavirus vaccine so he hasn't been so happy.

Busy Fall Weekend

We had a busy weekend. Yesterday morning I took Brandon and Wesley to R Bounce to meet up with my friend, Becky, and her son, Logan, and my friend Heather, and her children, Jen and Olivia. The kids loved all of the bounce things.

Last night Stu, Brandon, Wesley, and I met up with Sara, Evan, and Marino at McDonalds so that Brandon and Marino could play in the play place there. Both boys had a lot of fun playing.

Today we went to the pumpkin patch and apple picking with Grandpa Jacobs and Grandma and Grandpa Newman.

Brandon's First Field Trip

Brandon went on his first field trip today. His preschool class went to Atlantic Farms. Any parents who wanted to go could follow the bus so I decided to go. We had a fun time. First the kids went on a hayride and got to pick out a pumpkin to take home. Then they went to see the animals.

Meeting Plex

Plex and Brobee from Yo Gabba Gabba were at the mall on Monday. Brandon was excited to go see them. He was excited to see Plex initially when he was sitting in his stroller and was even saying he wanted to see Plex when we were first waiting in line. When it was our turn to see Plex, Brandon did not want to get out of his stroller. I took him out and he cried the whole time. Later I asked why he didn't like Plex and he said he was too big.

Daddy's 5K, Brandon's Birthday Party, and Ava's Christening

We had a busy day on Sunday. It started with going to watch Stu run in a 5K. He had his best time so far in the race we went to see. We are so proud of him! After Stu's race Brandon, Wesley, and I went to Brandon's friend, Brandon's, birthday party at Dorbrook Park. It was a beautiful day for it. Brandon had fun playing with his friends Ava, Hannah, and Avery at the party. After the birthday party we went to Ava's christening.
