Weight: 13lbs. 8 oz..!!! Height: 24.5″ Those stats put us at 97th and 90th percentiles, accordingly, if the charts were read correctly: oh my! His added weight and age have likely helped along our chunky monkey’s ability to sleep one 6 hour stretch at night — and sometimes longer (May 25th::slept from 8 pm to […]
One nice thing that has happened since Wes was born, both out of desire (not wanting television to be the background of our lives, especially Wes’) and necessity (who has the time?), is that there’s a lot less television watching going on in our home. I should say that I specifically am watching much less […]
Yes, he smiles these days — but how more often does he look like a little old man deep in thought, my serious and willful child! Coming up on 2 months now, he’s already such a big boy. Though he still can’t keep his head from tumbling forward, neither is he the tiny scrump whose […]
Some days it feels like we spend all our time watching Wes fight off sleep (at least his daytime naps — we can’t really complain about his night sleep) and trying to help him to give in to it. And who could blame us? He’s such a pleasant boy after a good rest. In fact, […]

Look at my boy’s perfectly pouty lips. Too bad I can’t say the same thing about my own. Cold sores, the bane of my existence, strike again this week. Where I would normally only get one or two a year, this latest one makes three (!) in the seven short weeks that comprise my young […]
Probably my favorite photo of Wes to date. How anxious we are to see if those big blue eyes of now will stay that blue for good. At times, I see hints of green, the color of his papa’s eyes. Craig often sees peeks of brown. In short, we choose to see the other in […]
Here perhaps is the one photograph of Wesley and me where I don’t think I look awful — mainly due of course to the fact that most of me is hidden behind my beautiful boy and some oversized sunglasses. It wasn’t planned, but I love seeing how the pink of my shirt and the blue […]
I hope as Wes gets older he’ll really come to love his ever-growing collection of hand and finger puppets. He already showed a budding interest at 1 week while watching his papa’s amazing debut performance. I think Craig may have missed his true calling!
