Update on Wes!

The other day we had Wes's 15-month appointment, even though he just turned 16 months. :-)

handsome man in his Valentine's day picture :-)

At 16 months, Wes is...

*WALKING! I would be lying if I said I wasn't starting to get a little nervous when he wasn't walking at 15 months old. However, almost immediately after his surgery, he just took right off! He is doing SO well, and loves to just walk all over the place. You would never know he was a late bloomer!
*still a really good eater. He prefers eggs and fruit over anything else, but we really try to get meat and veggies in him as much as we can. We are still working on eating with a spoon and fork. Last night's pumpkin and yogurt were definitely eaten with his hands in lieu of utensils. Messy boy!
*starting to say some new words. He says "all gone" all. the. time., "all done," "book," "ball," "milk," "cup," "baby (doll)," "mama," "dada," "bye-bye," "hot dog," "apple," "'Mo (Elmo)" and a few more.
*playing with cars, toy food, shooting hoops, pushing around strollers/push toys.
*weighing in at 25 lbs, 15 oz. (85th percentile)
*33" tall (90th percentile) and has a head circumference of 18 3/4" (65th percentile)
*a wild man with a big personality. He definitely lets us know when he is tired, hungry, or MAD! He is also a sweetie who loves to snuggle and read lots of books.

We love you, Wes!! You certainly keep us on our toes, and there is never a dull moment with you around!
