Wesley is 8 months old today. He is wearing size 12 month and 12-18 month clothes and a size 3 diaper. He eats 3 solids meals a day- fruit and oatmeal for breakfast, vegetable and oatmeal for lunch, and a vegetable/ meat blend usually for dinner. He drinks 5 bottles a day- usually between 26 and 30 ounces a day. His first tooth, one of his bottom teeth, cut through on Sunday so he hasn't been sleeping too great over the past few weeks since he has been teething. He is a happy baby most of the time and really entertains himself well by playing with his toys. He still LOVES Brandon. He has started to notice when I leave the room and is not happy when I do. Wesley is almost 20 pounds but I have no idea how long he is.
Wesley's first tooth finally cut through yesterday. It is one of his bottom teeth. He has been teething for a long time and has been waking up at night the past two weeks which isn't like him so I knew something was up. I think a top tooth might have cut through too but he won't let me look in his mouth to see. I will try to get a picture of his first tooth when I can.
On Friday night we brought Brandon to his first minor league ice hockey game. Stu and I went and both grandpas came with us. Brandon enjoyed watching the game and it was also mascot night. There were 15 mascots from all different teams so he really enjoyed seeing the mascots.
Last Thursday we went to Jungleriffic with Nancy, Justin, and Colin. Brandon had the best time there he has ever had. He easily climbed all of the play structures over and over again. In the past he has been afraid to climb some of them. Wesley had fun too. There is an area at Jungleriffic that has toys for babies to play with so he enjoyed that.
Brandon LOVES spelling words. He spells them out loud to me when we are driving in the car, spells them on the Wii when he makes new mii's and names them, and spells them on the computer. Last night he brought over two magnetic letters and spelled the word go with them on the floor.
A few weeks ago the weather was 62 degrees which is not at all normal for here. When we got home from work we decided to take the boys to the park. It was a little cooler when we went but still beautiful out. Brandon had such a good time running around and going on the slides. Wesley went in a baby swing for the first time. He was okay with sitting in it but as soon as I started to push him his whole body started to shake he was so scared. We will try again when it gets warmer out.
Wesley was sick again from last Saturday until this past Wednesday. He had a fever and his cough and congestion came back again. The pediatrician said he had a virus on top of everything else and to use his nebulizer two times a day. He finally seems to be feeling better.
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.
