Wesley Eats Rice Cereal for the First Time!

video

Tonight we fed Wesley rice cereal for the first time. After much thought we decided to try it out. Wesley will be 6 months in a couple of days. Even though he is only 3 months developmentally they suggest starting preemies at 6 months of actual age. Here is a little video of our experience. I am not sure if any of it made it into his belly. He seemed to have a good time, and that's what it is all about! Right? or is that the hokey pokey? Enjoy!

Wesley's Halo



We had to take Wesley this past week to Wake Forrest to get his head shape looked at. Our pediatrician recommended that we go and get another opinion on his head shape. Preemies often have a different shaped head because everything has to finish developing outside of the womb. Preemies heads tend to grow more up than out. Since Wesley was born so early there are a couple of spots that they want to work on get symmetrical and they feel that

they can do that with a helmet. I was hoping that he would not have to have one but he did. Even though there is nothing wrong and it is just cosmetic, for me it feels like we have taken a step back when I see him in it. For three months of his life I never saw my little boy without something cumbersome and restraining on him so it was hard for me to have to do this. He has to wear it for 4 months 22 hrs. a day. I am getting use to it and he does not seem to mind it. Yes, it is Carolina blue and we are not Carolina fans so that has been fun. We are thinking of how we can decorate it for him so if you have any ideas let me know. He now knows how his dad feels. Everyone always asks Greg "Did you play basketball?" and he sadly says no, now everyone asks Wesley "Do you play football?" and he sadly says my parents won't let me yet.

5 Months old

Here is a picture at 4 months. Do you think he has changed????










Wesley is 5 months old (real birthday) and 2 months old adjusted age. Here are a couple of pictures in his big boy t-shirt and shorts ( I know why babies wear onsies). Loving me some Wesley!

Playing on the Play Gym





Wesley and I try to take time everyday to get on the floor and play together. Here are some pictures of him on his play gym. He is starting to focus on things and swat at them with his hands. We try to do some tummy time everyday as well. Tomorrow I am going to the Baptist church to try a Kindermusic class out. I am trying to meet some moms and get involved. Isn't he a cutie!

Update

I don't know where to start. So much has happened since my last post. We were suppose to move August 27th and it all happen the same day. (closing on our house in Greensboro and closing on our new house here.) Well... it was going way to smooth. We got a call about 4 o'clock (the day before closing at 9am the next morning when the U-haul truck was almost completely loaded with all of our personal belongings) that we were not going to be closing on our house in Greensboro the next day because the girl that was buying our house her loan was not ready. So we waited an extra day in Greensboro at Greg's parents b/c everything we had was already packed in a truck that we were paying for. To make a really long story not so long: we ended up coming down here and unloading all of our belongings into the garage of our new house and were told everyday that it would be one more day until we found out a week and a half later that the loan branch that our buyer went through was being shut down for loan fraud. We stayed in a committee members house here in Pinehurst and waited. We finally were able to move into our new house, but still have not closed on our house in Greensboro. We are loving it here, but needless to say have not had much time to blog. Wesley is so big and changing everyday. He is constantly smiling at you when he is awake starting to coo and talk. 2 weeks ago he weighed 13lbs 2oz. I am loving staying at home with him. Being a mom is awesome.
