When I think about this time last year ... waiting for our home remodel to be done, praying this baby boy wouldn't come too early, trying to get in the holiday spirit while feeling lousy, celebrating another baby boy turning 2 ... I can hardly believe THIS baby boy is almost 1! I was so nervous about having a third baby ... and another boy ... but God knew Weston James was exactly what our family needed. He brings us tremendous joy and we love him so dearly.
He talking up a storm, just like those other two babies did at his age. He's cruising and standing alone but no steps yet. Who needs to walk when your siblings do everything for you?? He loves looking at (and gently touching) the Christmas tree and decorations, and no major catastrophes so far! He is SO BUSY. ALL THE TIME. He and Hutch have been spending more time together while sister's at school or activities, and they absolutely delight in each other. Weston loves to imitate everything Hutch does, especially saying words, acting silly or blowing bubbles in the bathtub. Hutch was made to be a big brother.
He loves being around people and is more social than his siblings at this age. He was so sad when he couldn't go to the nursery last week (thank you croup) ... when I dropped Hutch next door to Weston's classroom he strained and reached for his teachers. Be still my heart.
He loves to eat all carbs and puffs. Most meats are OK. He'll eat fruit and veggies most of the time. His sippee cup is No. 1. He's nursing just a few times a day, which makes this mama sad.
Can't wait to continue to celebrate my favorite time of the year with this sweet baby boy, and then to cap off our year celebrating him turning 1!
