Top 10 things you need to know about Wesley

1. Wes is such a messy eater in the day. It takes an hour to feed him 4 oz. He is so busy looking around and smiling at the fan, and lights. He swats his bottle out his mouth, causing milk to go everywhere. He really could care less about his bottle.
2. At night he is the best eater. He will sit in the chair with me with, holding his hands together on his chest and down the entire bottle in 20 min flat. That's without a drip of formula anywhere.
3. When he is about to cry he always shows you his big bottom lip first. Its the cutest pout ever.
4. He loves sucking on his fist or his 2 middle fingers. (Just like Clara) He wont take a passy.
5. He loves to sleep with his hands over his head. (Just like mommy)
6. He has learned how to scoot. I will put him down for a nap and when I go in to get him he has scooted all the way to the top of his crib leaving his blanket behind.
7. He falls asleep anywhere.
8. His favorite position to fall asleep is on Moms shoulder with his arm around my neck. I love it. This is my "go to" position if he wont stop crying. It works every time.
9. His eyelids turn red when he is ready for his nap.
10. He is starting to notice his toys. We can get him to smile, kick his feet and move his hands all around when he sees his bugs. He gets so excited.

I love this little guy.
The 4th Of July

The week leading up to the 4th we had family in town. Aaron's family and mom and dad. It was so much fun. We ate a lot, spent time up in Heber at Aunt Shirley's, and played around in SLC. In Salt Lake we took everyone to temple square. The kids loved it. I haven't been in forever and they have really done some cool things with the visitor centers. We also saw the Legacy movie. Its always so humbling to watch the story of how our church was restored, and to see all the hardships Joseph and all the early saints had to endure. It makes my little world of my little worries seem so petty. After that the family stayed with us couple nights. We had so much fun. Wesley was such a trooper. He was driven, pushed, and held all over town that week. Here are some pictures of our fun week.

(Sorry the only pictures I took were of peole holding Wes. Can you tell that my world is just about Wesley?)
All the family left the Friday before the 4th. We all were pretty worn out by that time so we didn't even do anything for the 4th. We let Wesley catch up on much needed sleep and Garrett and I just did take out and watched movies all weekend long. It couldn't have been a better 4th. We did get out of the house to check out the sales on 5th. Not to bad. :)

Girls night out. We went and saw eclipse a couple nights ago. It was really good. Probably the best one yet. They must get more money each time because each movie gets better and better. A lot of action. I even think Garrett would enjoy it. Maybe not...

We ate at Zupas before we went. Yummy.

This is us after the movie. It was a sea of women exiting the theater. Look how happy we all are.
