Silly Wesley

A few days ago Wesley spent at least 15 minutes stacking mini playdough containers on top of eachother like they were blocks. They would fall down and he would do it again. He even carried them with him, stacked, wherever he went.

Later in the day his favorite toy became the garbage can. It was empty so it was okay. There is a small bucket inside the can that comes out so he kept taking it out and putting it back in. Then he would put his doggy blanket inside the garbage can and say, "Doggy?" When I would ask where doggy was he would take doggy out and laugh like it was the funniest thing. He then started carrying the garbage can from place to place where he was.

This morning after I got Wesley dressed he walked over to his closet and found a pair of crocs that he insisted on wearing even though it is only in the 40s. He wore them all morning and would not let me take them off. When he finally did take them off he decided that they should go on his wrists and then he wouldn't let me take them off of his wrists. Silly boy!

Low Key Weekend

We had a low key weekend since Brandon was sick again. On Friday he felt warm around dinner time so I took his temperature and it was 101.5. Other than a fever he has been acting fine except for yesterday afternoon when he asked to take a nap. He doesn't nap anymore so for him to ask to take a nap I knew he had to not be feeling well. Other than that he has been jumping around and eating fine which he doesn't normally do when he is sick. I brought him to the pediatrician on Saturday and the doctor said his throat was red and his glands were swollen. He did a strep culture but it came back negative so it is just a virus. He has been fever free so far today so hopefully it stays away so he can go back to school tomorrow. Here are some pictures from this weekend. Wesley keeps asking me to take his picture by saying "chee" when he sees the camera.

4 1/2

Brandon turned 4 1/2 on Saturday. It is so crazy to think in 6 months he will be 5 and that he will be starting kindergarten in September!

At 4 1/2 Brandon weighs about 32 pounds. I am not sure how tall he is since he hasn't been measured in awhile. He wears a size 4t shirt and a size 3t pants. He has a size 8 1/2 shoe (although he hasn't been measured since September so that could be bigger).

Brandon is a great big brother. He absolutely loves Wesley. He is always going up to him and kissing him and hugging him. He teaches him things, plays with him, and is patient with him most of the time. I really love the relationship that is developing between them.

Brandon loves playing with anything electronis...his leap pad, the computer (Starfall, Nick Jr., PBS kids, abcmouse, abcya), and the Wii. His favorite show right now is Doc McStuffins.

Brandon goes to two preschools (Ivy Hedge and the public school pre k) and is doing great. He has learned so much in the last year. He can read (pretty much self taught) and do basic math. He writes his full name (Brandon Tyler Newman) by himself and draws pictures. He recently started drawing people the right way with a head, body, arms, hands, legs, and feet. Prior to that he was drawing a circle with arms and legs off of it.
