Wesley did a 4-hour stretch!!

He ate at 1:30, then went straight to sleep and didn’t wake up until almost 5:30. It doesn’t sound like much, but considering he was eating every two hours at this point last week, I think it’s amazing. I had 2 two-hour naps last night, which is a new record! This couldn’t have come at a better time, because I’m fighting fever and an infection, so I certainly need the rest!

Breakfast in bed, lovingly prepared by Wes and Vera this morning. All of my favorites! Click here to see my well-crafted cards, etc. It’s been a great  Mother’s Day so far. 
P.S. Wes can lift 600lbs with one hand while he is sleeping and has huge, muscular thighs. The more his hair falls out, the more I fall in love with him. :)

After dance recital rehearsal...

  • Vera: Mom, can we get a McDonald's box?
  • Mom: Do you mean a Happy Meal?
  • Vera: Yeah.

Wesley’s 2-week update:
In keeping with tradition, I’m late with Wesley’s update! (I think I was late for every one of Vera’s).
Wesley made two weeks last Wednesday (May 1st). As you can see, he wasn’t too jazzed about taking that picture…he’ll get used to it I’m sure.
Anyway, he was 8lbs 4oz at birth, and 7lbs 10oz when we left the hospital. At his slightly-less-than-one-week-checkup, he was 7lbs 14oz. By his 2-week checkup, he was 9lbs 4oz and 22 1/2 inches (up from 21inches)!! I can’t say I’m surprised…the boy has been eating every 2 hours on the dot, which has me exhausted. Every now and then, he will go 3 hours, but for now it’s like he’s trying to fatten up for role in a movie (where obviously he’d play the cutest baby boy ever).
Here are his comparative percentile stats: 96% for height, 62% for weight, and 70% for head circumference.
He is a very good baby, but extremely gassy. He gets gas almost every time he eats which is hard. It’s not as bad at night as it is during the day which is lucky I guess. I just hope he grows out of this soon, because it’s no fun for any of us!!
Vera has been an amazing big sister. She is very understanding and sweet to him. She’s also almost always willing to help when we ask her to. She’s been a little more emotional than normal, and I know she misses having us all to herself, but I’m really proud of how good she’s been. Wes has been great at keeping her entertained with park trips, etc when I need rest, and she’s still in school for another couple of weeks, so by then I should be recovered and ready to handle two at home.
Ok, that’s it! Short but sweet! I’ll try to write more at 4 weeks.

Wesley’s cord fell off yesterday, so Vera and I just have him his first tub bath. He didn’t hate it!

Thanks to this little contraption, I got Vera off to school, the dishwasher unloaded and loaded, towels folded, baby clothes in dryer, Vera’s clothes soaking in oxi-clean (always), and I ate breakfast! Not bad for my first day as a mother-of-two with no extra help! It’s only 7:45! Next on the agenda: sit down and rest so I don’t overdo it. Second c-sections are far more painful than first. (In my case, anyway).

We took family portraits today, which was both fun and exhausting. We have to wait two weeks to see those, but I remembered Wes got these three beauties of our newly expanded family in various stages of our hospital stay.

Here’s Wesley struggling to stay awake for “playtime.” He does seem to enjoy looking at this book though. One week old today!!
