Life of Weston the past few weeks

These are Weston's favorite new toys. I decided to give him a bowl and wooden spoon from the kitchen. Who knew he'd love it so much? He likes to rattle his toys around in the bowl and suck on the spoon.

My cousin, Ashley, came and stayed with us last week. It was a lot of fun. We watched the Olympics a lot and she helped a lot with Weston. It was great having her here. She's back off to Baylor now!!

He turns over so much now that I usually find him in this position in the mornings or after naps. He is normally just in there laughing or talking to himself.

I just bought a shower mat so his little behind doesn't slip around in the bathtub. He is a big boy all sitting up in the bathtub by himself. He loves to splash.....water goes everywhere but it's so fun to watch him.

My aunt Kay and uncle Randy gave him his first pair of boots....they are John Deere boots! Here he is checking them out. They are so cute on him. It was hard to get his fat little feet down in them. His dad said his arms look like sausage links in these pictures.

We went to Chuy's with Matt & Aren and Weston liked the table the best. He sucked on it the whole time. I'm sure it was nice and clean. I hope he didn't get any diseases from it. I'm thinking there is going to be a tooth soon!

It's so fun to put hats on him now. He doesn't seem to mind it too much.

5 months old!

I can't believe it but Weston is 5 months old today. Time flies! He is doing great. The pediatrian told us not to start him on solid foods until 6 months but we had a little fun and tried some cereal the other night. It was pretty cute. He did okay with it. He is doing so many things now. I just love watching him play and move around. He can stand up by himself and hold on to his exersaucer. He also sat in a high chair at a restaurant Friday night by himself. It sure makes it easier on me not to lug around that heavy carrier. It's great! And better than that is that I put him in the grocery cart today. He sat in it and did great. He loved looking around at everything. I was able to put SO much more in the cart and do things so much easier. It was fun. I just love him so much. It's great being his mom!

Fun with my Cousins

I got to go see my cousins this past weekend in Denton. I got to see all of them because they all live in the same neighborhood now.

We got to all go swimming at their neighborhood pool on Saturday. It was so hot....not only outside....but the water was hotter than my bathtub! Kayden is a dare devil in the pool. She isn't scared of anything!! I just sat in my little float the whole time while my mom pushed me around. I sure love the water. I got to play with the girls a lot. Kiersi still calls me "baby augin"....we are not sure why. But she sure loves to say it all the time.

Malakai let me play with his toys. We had a lot of fun. He is walking everywhere now. I don't know if I'll ever be able to keep up with him.

Just too cute!!

Even though it takes forever upload pics because our internet is so slow...it's worth it because I just want to show him off!

Fun with more Family

We had lots of family last week. My side left on Wednesday afternoon and Logan's family came in Wednesday night. His parents, Mamu, and Papa all came for the rest of the week. We had a great time with them. Weston loved getting to have them here too. We spent all day on Thursday at the house while it rained from hurricane Dolly. Mimi and Mamu cooked yummy food on Thursday night. Then on Friday we took everyone to eat some great Mexican food in Boerne. Of course you know that you must eat mexican food if you visit San Antonio. On Saturday we tried to go to the lake that morning but the boat was acting funny. We have learned our lesson on ignoring funny noises so we decided to take it in to the shop instead of risking it. We all went for a walk/run around the neighborhood instead. Saturday night we went to yummy Carabbas for dinner!!! SO GOOD!! Mimi got Weston his first monkey and golf clubs. He sure loved them. Then church on Sunday morning and Logan and his dad went to play golf. We cooked Barry Burgers that night for dinner. Papa taught Weston to play the piano and Mamu played with him in the exersaucer. Mimi and Grumpa even got to read him a story before bed. They had to leave on Monday morning for the long drive back to Kansas. We sure had a good time with them. Thanks for making the LONG drive!!
He started sucking his thumb last week. It is really cute but also so great. Now when he takes a nap all you do is just lay him down in his crib and he starts sucking his thumb and goes right to sleep!! It's amazing!! He slept so good and long while they were here. I guess he was still recovering from Sea World. He is such a good little boy.....gosh I love him so much. This is funny to admit but when I take him to the nursery at church I get so excited to go get him after it's over......my heart even starts beating faster!!! It's like I can't wait to see him again!! He is the best and I just love him to pieces!!!

I think all the grandmas wore Weston out. He was a tired little boy!
