Wesley and his buddies

Several months ago I showed you this picture of my women's bible study:
Now look!
L to R: Beck Roman born January 20, Magnus Blaise and Wesley Robert born January 28, and Chaucer Bennett born February 12!
Chaucer and Wes are buddies. ;)

The two ladies on the right in the top picture both are having girls! Eowyn is set to arrive any day, as in hopefully tonight, and Neve was born April 13th!

God is gracious to us!

Month 2

Wesley is a full two months now and he's fitting in perfectly with our little family. He is starting to get more predictable patterns and everyone adores him. The last two nights he's gone to bed in his crib around 8pm and we haven't heard a peep until midnight-ish. It makes for a nice, relaxing evening when everyone is safe and sound under this roof and Mommy gets a break. He has shown that he likes being in the Sidecar Sling a lot, and I'm so thankful for it because I can keep him happy and have both arms free. As of Wednesday when we visited the doctor, Wesley weighs nearly 11 pounds and is in the 30% for weight and about 10% for height. Not surprising!
We took a trip to Astoria, which was Wesley's first road trip. He did great in the car, and both ways we only stopped once to stretch our legs and for Wesley to nurse. He also has been quite the chatterbox and loves to smile and "talk," especially to Daddy.
We love you Wesley!

I'm flattered...

but do you really have to ask?
I was at Grocery Outlet (yes aka Mold Outlet, it's really not that bad) this week because they had a 20% off all wine sale. Their wine prices are already ridiculously low, so I was stocking up. This is my cart: Wesley in the carseat, Caley in the cart where the food goes, Amelia hanging off the cart singing, "I'm swinging like a monkey" and five, yes five bottles of wine. I think I was also drinking some coffee.
We got to the line and the checker asked to see my ID and I just laughed. I'm flattered that she is required to enter my birthdate, but seriously even if I was younger than 21 and had three kids 5 and under, I think I'd have earned the privilege to drink some wine. On the other hand, having three kids 5 and under, the only place we can seem to afford wine is Grocery Outlet. Damn recession.
