Wesley is 6 months old today. He had his 6 month well visit this morning and weighs 17 pounds, 15 ounces (65th percentile) and is 27 1/2 inches long (90th percentile). His head is in the 50th percentile. He got a flu shot and two other shots so he was not so happy. His gums are also very swollen which means we will probably see some teeth soon. The pediatrician told me to continue to feed him a cereal and fruit for breakfast and dinner and to add on a vegetable and meat for lunch. When we got home from the doctor he was due to eat so I gave him butternut squash and chicken and he devoured both. He goes back in a month for his flu shot and his next well visit isn't until he is 9 months old. Wesley is still a great sleeper. We finally moved him to his crib about 3 weeks ago and he has been sleeping through the night in it. Wesley drinks 6 ounce bottles except for the bottles following his meals. For those bottles he gets 4 ounce bottles so he has anywhere from 30-36 ounces in a day.
Brandon and Wesley were cracking eachother up tonight. They both kept laughing at eachother and playing together for a long time. It is so nice to see how much they both really love eachother. Brandon gets the best reactions from Wesley.
Wesley LOVES his exersaucer and jumperoo. He figured out how to jump in his jumperoo and tonight was also jumping in his exersaucer. Brandon playing in his jumperoo when he was the same adjusted age as Wesley
We haven't done much of anything the past few days. We have just been hanging out at the house, relaxing, and playing with some new toys. A big hit was the Hi Ho Cherry-O game we got for Brandon. We played several games of it a few nights ago. Brandon has also been enjoying playing some of his new games from his Leapfrog Leap Pad. Wesley got some new toys that are age 6 months and up that he has been having fun playing with. He really interacts with his toys now and plays with them.
We went to my friend Becky's parents' house last night for Christmas Eve. Growing up I went there every year but hadn't been in 4 years. We had a nice time there. Becky's son Logan is the same age asBrandon and the two boys are good friends so Brandon had a lot of fun playing with Logan.
My name is Karen and I have been married to my husband Stu for a little over 9 years. I was pregnant with twins and lost our baby girl at 20 1/2 weeks after I had premature rupture of membranes. I stayed pregnant with the other baby and our first child, Brandon Tyler, was born on July 5, 2008 at 26 weeks and 1 day. Our second child, Wesley Matthew, was born full term on June 29, 2011. This blog is documenting our children.
