I love my swing!

Fighting sleep in Dad's arms

Checking out the teddy bear mobile on his swing.

Lots of interesting things to stare at.


What's that?!?

We introduced Wesley to his swing a few days ago.  The first try wasn't much of a success with lots of crying.  But, he seems to love it now.  He'll sit and stare at stuff for awhile before his eyes get so heavy that he can't keep them open anymore.  Then it's naptime.

Other news:  We don't have a picture of it yet, but Wesley can now smile in response to other people.  He does it most often when he's wide awake and staring up at you.  If you smile and make noises at him, the corners of his mouth will start to twitch.  Then, he'll launch into this huge smile that just lights up his eyes.  It was a really great feeling when he smiled at each of us for the first time.  We'll keep trying to catch it on camera.

You probably don't see it, but Wesley had changed considerably in the past week. He looks heavier in the face and he definitely looks much more awake.

He's so cute! It's hard to catch those grins on camera!
