This week has flown by SO fast and I can’t believe that it’s been a full 10 weeks since Weston was born. It’s crazy!
He’s such a little man now! He’s pretty much wearing all of his clothes now and it’s super fun to have him get dressed in the morning and into his specific PJs at night. Before we pretty much had him wearing pajamas all day long since we didn’t have a ton of newborn clothes, but now he’ll wear “real” clothes during the day…even if his mom is wearing the same thing she slept in. 😉
Speaking of clothes I have to say that one of the things I wasn’t excited about having a boy was that the clothes weren’t as cute as girls’ clothes…but now I’ve completely changed my mind! Little boys’ clothes are the cuuuuuuutest and so much fun! I kind of think I’ll be terrified of dressing a baby girl if we ever have one.
We’ve been working a lot more on tummy time this week and I have to say that he’s making big improvements in holding his sweet little head up. He’s not to the point where he’s trying to roll over yet, but he’ll hold his head up for several minutes before he gets tired and lays it down on his hand. It has made a big difference in his head control everywhere else too!
This little guy is OBSESSED with his hands now too. If he’s not eating or sleeping he’s probably chewing on his hands…and I think he may be teething a little? I can’t tell for sure but it looks like there are some little teeth coming in on the bottom but I don’t really know if I’m just imagining it. Has anyone ever seen a 2.5 month old sprout teeth?
The funniest part about him chewing on his hands is that I don’t totally know whether or not he realizes that they’re his. It’s like he will chew on them or grab at his face and have this expression that just says, “GET UP OFF ME!” Cracks me up!
I’m so thankful that Wes’s schedule is finally starting to come together. I think it really makes it easier for both of us to gauge how our days will go and it makes it so much easier to take him places. Nothing is ever set in stone with it but I’m thankful that we just seem to be getting more and more used to one another. We’re going to a hot air balloon festival this weekend which will be the first time we really have an agenda with him, and I’m excited to see how it goes!
One of the sad things about him being so awake and aware all the time now is that my snuggly little baby is no longer as interested in the snuggling part. He’s always wanting to look around, watch the dogs, watch TV or look and see what I’m doing.
Oh, and suck on his fingers. Of course.
Really though, his feedings are getting shorter and the sweet time that we had to snuggle all the time are getting fewer and further between. It’s so fun to play with him now but I have really been trying to savor the times that I get to just hold him and sniff his sweet head. You guys warned me this time would come!
As much as I miss the snuggling part though it makes me so happy to continue to watch Nate and West together. Wes is totally aware when Nate gets home and loves watching him! Plus when they hang out I get to see just how much my little guy looks like his dad (although yes, Nate, you are more tan than Wes). I keep hearing from all of our friends with little boys that they start to just want to hang out with their dads and I just am so excited to see their relationship continue to develop!
In other news I’M GETTING MY HAIR DONE THIS WEEKEND!!! It’s been almost a full year since I had my hair highlighted and the six inches of roots are getting a little old. I don’t mind my natural hair color but it’s going to be nice to have a little change. Not to mention I’m probably going to get it cut a little shorter too and I’m just excited for the feeling of a lighter head of hair. I always wanted really long hair and finally got it when I was pregnant, but now that I’ve been there I think I’ve realized that it’s just a better lifestyle and style fit for my hair to be about shoulder length. Long enough to pull it all back but not to the point that it’s super heavy!
I can’t believe we’re in the double-digits now. I remember when I was pregnant it felt like FOREVER to get from week 9 to 10, and having Weston here in real life it’s just flown by. I can’t wait to spend every day with him, and love being a mom even more every day!
