More fun 3wk pics

Hanging out in the bouncy chair.
Hmmm...what does Katherine do while Mommy is feeding Wesley?? Tonight she found the freezer paper and decided to decorate her room!! You would never know it but I had just cleaned and organized her bedroom that morning. Oh well!! Fun times!

What do you see Wesley? Lately he is really starting to look around more and more. He is awake more too which is fun. I can't believe how fast he is changing and growing.

3 wks old

Wesley is 3 wks old already. I can hardly believe it. We are slowly adjusting to life without Grandma Sue. Matt has started his new job and is really liking it. He will be leaving for the academy in GA Nov. 12th. I am learning how to manage two children and housework as well as recovering from surgery.

Katherine had her two year old check up finally....and is doing great. She weighs 30 lbs and is 36 inches tall. She is in the 90%tile. She passed all of her milestone checks with flying colors. She is a great big sister and helper.

Wesley is weighing in at 10 lbs 4 ozs and continues to be doing great. He is better from his cold.

2 wks old

Well Wesley gave us a bit of an adventure in his second week of life. On the 19th Mom and Dad left on the train at 2:30 am. By the time Matt got home from the train station Wesley was wheezing and coughing. We called the night line and she recommended we go to the ER. So back to Sandpoint for Matt at 3:30 am. On the way we came across about a dozen cows in the road. Once at ER Wesley seemed to be doing alot better. Monday we took him to the pediatrician and she ordered a chest x-ray as he was labored in his breathing. On the positive he had gained 9 ozs in 4 days. Everything checked out okay and both of the drs there thought he had some sort of viral bug. So we spent the week sleeping upright in the recliner and he is doing great now.

Our 1st family outing

Our friend Jeremy came to Spokane so we took our first road trip to go see him.
It was so great to hang out for a while. The kids both crashed before we were able to take pics.
We can't wait for you to come back, Jeremy. But next time we will show you where we live!!
Bring Amanda too!

Our first week home

Katherine finally has hair! Now if only she would keep things in it.
But she is pretty darn cute with her full on mullet!
The latest smile!

Snoozing away

1 week old

I can't believe it but Wesley is already one week old.

He is doing great!

At his dr appt everything looked great and he now weighs 8lbs 8.5 ozs. Almost back to his birth weight.

I am sore but doing good. And so thankful to be off bedrest!

We are so blessed

Katherine and Wesley hanging out.
Katherine is a great big sister. She is so excited to have Wesley here and is a big helper.
She is fully potty trained now! Hooray for Grandma Sue!!
She loves to hold Wesley and give him kisses. She has decided that her main job is to make sure that the bouncing chair is vibrating when he is sitting in it. The rule is no touching his head or face. We are now not allowed to touch her baby dolls head or face either. She is pretty cute. We are so blessed to have such a wonderful daughter.

My beautiful family. We are truly loving life right now.

Some exciting family news...over the past 10 months Matt has been pursuing a possible career change as a Customs and Border Protection Officer. While Wesley was being born last Friday Matt received the phone call officially offering him the postion. So on Oct. 21st Matt will start working up at Porthill. We are so excited for this great opportunity for him. The tough part is he will be going to academy in Georgia for 4 months. He will be leaving on Nov. 12th. Although it will be tough it will be wonderful and so worth it once it is over. It is kinda like he is going on tour again with the guys. Only this time we are married and have 2 kids! GOD IS GOOD! ALL THE TIME!! And we thank Him every day for all of the blessings in our lives.

Wesley's first week home...
