It may be a one-sided friendship, but check out these pics of Wes and his sister (yes, we know she is a cat) playing. And just look at the look of love in Wes' eyes! Hilarious.

And yes, we do keep our child caged in to play. It's the only way Neil and I can leave the room for 30 seconds.

I am exhausted.

Well, as of the last several days, Wes is into EVERYTHING. I know it will get worse as he can actually move, but Neil and I are just trying to keep up with this recent development. No longer is he content to sit up and play with his stacking cups or Cookie monster book. He wants whatever you have, he wants it now, and he'll scream his disapproval if you don't give it to him. Then he laughs. The whole thing is pretty hilarious - for now.

His crawling right now consists of grabbing onto whatever is in front of him and pushing off with his feet to scoot along the floor. He can actually get along pretty well. He loves standing, as well. He loves to stand up at the ottoman and try to get whatever is on it at the moment.

You'll also see a mouth full of teeth in these. All four front teeth came one after another. He's started drooling pretty steadily again, so I wouldn't be surprised if the next round is on the way.

on the move on his new abc mat...he looks like he's been busted.

Teething Sucks!

It's hard trying to get Wes to smile wide enough for you to see his two teeth. We worked and worked and this is the best we got, and it's only of his bottom tooth (he has one on top and one on the bottom). You might have to enlarge it, but you'll be able to see the white tooth peeking out in this one!!


Wes has the funniest expressions. He's had them since he was about an hour old. He's always narrowed his eyes and looked at you like you were either really interesting or a complete idiot. I thought these pics I took the other day in the exersaucer completely captured this look.

and one funny one...I think he was talking but it looks like he just sucked on a lemon!

Wesley's Photo proofs are here!

If you haven't seen them yet, check them out. Holy cow, they are good.

Wes is now a Cousin!!!

Congrats to Natasha and Jud (Neil's sister and brother-in-law) who are now the proud parents of Diem Siena Schneider!

Diem was born on April 4th and was 6 lbs 14 oz, and was 17.5 inches in length.

Wes is very excited to meet his new cousin - I'm sure he'll teach her all kinds of things!!
