Physical Therapy

Wesley has been receiving Physical and Play therapy once a week for about a month now. They come to the house to work with him. He loves it and so do I. What a blessing this has been. There are no big problems they just work with him helping him meet the next developmental milestone. Right now he is working on rolling over and tummy time. He improves each week! Our physical therapist has been really fun to get to know. She is a first time mom and she has a little boy that was born at 33 weeks in May and he was growth restricted. We have been through a lot of the same things and it has been such a blessing to connect with her. She works with Wesley on an exercise ball and he loves it. He practices sitting up and rolling over on the ball. It is a fun way for him to learn those skills. Both of our therapists come from the Sandhills Children's center which is where we have Young Life club every week. We are getting to know them now on a whole different level and it is a pretty amazing place.

First cold & Ear Infection

This is what my bedside table looks like. A little for me, a little for him. Wesley got his first cold last week. It is no fun to have a baby that is congested and there is not much that you can do about it. He has been fighting his cold for a week and we thought that we were on the up swing, then I caught his cold and he got an ear infection. This past Thursday Wesley woke up and screamed and slept and did not eat for the majority of the day. I finally got him to the Dr. and he has an ear infection. Sweet. We are now on an antibiotic and ear drops. He now has diarrhea from the medicine and still has a bad cough and keeps gagging himself. Praying for a quick recovery, please join me. Since I am nursing there is no medicine that I can really take so I am sticking to tissues and Ibuprofen. Fun times!

my favorite little monkey

he is getting so big!

I can't believe that our little boy is 7 months old today. The above pictures are some higlights of months number 6! He is growing and changing everyday. A month ago he weighed 16 pounds. He is babbling and talking to us, smiling, lauging, drooling, putting everything in his mouth, holding his head up really well, turning to look at you when you talk, grabbing toys, sucking his thumb, and bringing so much joy to his mommy and daddy. I couldn't imagine life without him. He has already been to 2 college football games and 2 Young Life camps. He is a busy boy! Sorry for the lack of posts. We have been settling into our new area and its been busy. When we finish unloading all the boxes I will posts some pictures of the house!

We love you guys! Thanks for reading my blog!
