Had to share some cute pictures and give a little update.
Last week Wesley attended his first wedding. Yes, another “first” that most people may think is insignificant, but which I am noting nontheless. The best part of the wedding was that he got to sport his new (well, borrowed) dress up clothes. Just try to look at this photo without your heart melting.
Since we introduced Wes to the water, we have been taking him swimming every chance we get. So, of course, I had to get him a swim outfit. I wanted something that was long sleeve and had high SPF so we didn’t have to use sunscreen. I found one that I loved on the Alex & Me website. Everyone comments that all he needs is a surfboard to complete the look.
Then, I found this pool float on Craigslist. He’s still pretty little in it (technically, it’s supposed to be for 6 months and older), so his bottom half floats up and it makes him lounge back. But, he has a grand time sucking on his sleeve and floating around.
We have enjoyed swimming so much with him, we have decided to do swim lessons. I found a place nearby called Swim Venture where they offer free group lessons for kids under 2. We went for the first time last Tuesday and Wesley loved it. In fact, I’m pretty sure the other moms were jealous of my smiling baby because those kids between 12 and 24 months were screaming in panic the entire time. So, my advice is, start young! We’ll be going again this Tuesday and I promise to provide video evidence.
Another big thing from this week is the addition of a crib into our bedroom. Until now, Wes has been jammed into the bassinet, but he could barely fit and I was sure that it was disrupting his sleep. So, we squeezed the crib between my side of the bed and the wall and now I have to inch my way through the 4 inches of space. But, it’s worth it and he transitioned very well into the crib (fyi, we’re in a 1 bedroom apartment, so this is really the only way he could sleep somewhere quiet during the day).
