Wesley is 4 months old! It’s crazy to think he’s already a third of the way to 1 year old! Time is definitely flying by. We are loving being parents to this little guy so much. Everyone said our lives would change forever, and I expected that, but I could not have imagined how much. I was trying to explain to my friend the other day just how much I love him. So here’s the best (and weirdest) way I could: I love Craig so much, I chose to marry him and spend my life with him. I think that if a bus was coming and I could save his life instead of mine, I would (I hope I would cause I can’t imagine my life without him). But with Wes, I know I would jump in front of the bus. Now let’s hope this never happens! All that to say, I didn’t realize just how strong my parental instincts would be.
The last few months have been great. Wes is such an easy baby. Really! (I’m really sorry to those of you who don’t have easy babies. Parenting is hard work no matter how easy a baby you have, so I feel for you!). I think the longest he has ever cried is maybe 5 minutes and this has happened only a couple times because we couldn’t make his bottle fast enough. He wakes up talking and smiling (much unlike his mother, good thing father is a morning person!). And since about 3 months old he has been sleeping through the night (sleeping through the night is 8 hours + fyi–I thought something was wrong with him when I was hearing about all these 2 month old sleeping through the night which come to find out was only for 5 hours. The night is much longer than 5 hours!). He has been a great little traveler road tripping across five states and taking his first flight.
He is an easy baby, but I have a feeling he is going to be giving us a run for our money in just a few short months. This kid is active! A lot of mornings when I go to get him out of his crib he has done a 180! I can see him already frustrated with his body…he wants to play with his toys and his hands will not do what he is telling them to do! Getting rid of extra furniture, play mats, and a fenced yard are hopefully in our near future.
As our first Christmas with a kid approaches, we are trying to do as many fun things as we can like putting Wes in a Christmas tree! Don’t worry, he was well supervised and didn’t mind one bit! Craig is excited for Wes’ Christmas presents, but I think he’s gonna be a bit disappointed that he’s not quite ready for legos.
