First steps

Weston took his first steps, but the most he walked so far was three steps. He will do it more if he is excited about something. If he thinks too much he will get down and crawl. He loves to be outside and likes the sandbox although not as much as Hunter. He pushes his little car outside all over the yard. He'll sit on the ride on toys, but won't push them with his feet.

First Swingset

We got the boys thier first swingset. C spent all yesterday putting it together. It has two slides and two swings plus a rope ladder/climber a tunnel and a covered play area. Weston liked the baby swing. Hunter is still getting used to the real swing. It is a toddler sized seat very low to the ground, but it doesn't have a seatback and he is a little nervous using it. Hunter's little friend next door already came over and played with them. I also bought them a playhouse and Weston got a water play table for his birthday, but it is too cold for that still.

First Birthday

We had Weston's first birthday party at a really cute kids' place sort of like Chuck-E-Cheese, but much better. I think it went well and everyone had a good time. The kids were so cute. Weston loved the ball pit and could have stayed in it all day. He liked his cake and was so dainty it was funny. He just poked one finger at the frosting and kept licking it. Hunter was go go go the entire day without a nap. Finally on the way home they both fell asleep in the car. Weston got a lot of toys especially cars and trucks which he loves and lots of cute summer clothes which he needs. His party theme was Winnie the Pooh because his room is decorated in all Winnie the Pooh things.

First Haircut

Weston had his first haircut on the 30th. C took him to his barber. I wanted to go, but Hunter was throwing a fit AGAIN, so I just put him down for a nap. C taped Weston's haircut for me though. Weston slept through the entire thing. It was really funny to see the tape. I didn't want him to get his hair cut, but people were begining to ask me if he was a girl. He looks so much older now.

Updates from the past couple of weeks

I haven't written in so long. We have been busy. It is hard to find time to myself especially at night. We have a night routine down and then I have to clean up from dinner and then I am exhasted. We have been very busy on the weekends as well. On March 11th we went to Boston Children's Museum with C's brother, his wife, and thier daughter. I think everyone had fun. Hunter loved the water, bubbles, balls, and the new wind pipes. Weston really liked the baby room and had a lot of fun crawling through the tunnel.

The next weekend we were supposed to go out for our anniversary We traveled up to C's parents after he got out of work and it was fairly late. Hunter was screaming and we couldn't calm him down. I think he was just so overtired. We had a busy week with playdates and stuff from the Moms club. I really couldn't leave him like that. He finally calmed down after an hour, but it was too late to go out then. At least we got to visit C's mom a little. My parents came over the next day and babysat and we went to Red Lobster because I was craving lobster. It was good. Not as good as the Inn, but good.

This weekend is Weston's birthday. We are having a party at a kiddie center. We just didn't want to have a lot of people here. I think the kids will like it. It looks like fun and no clean up !!!
