Sweet potato puffs Take 2

Wesley has vastly improved on his fine motor skills with using his hands.  He's a pro at picking up the sweet potato puffs now.  This video is from yesterday morning.

(And, yes, I know the chair is dirty.  He gets food all over it almost every time he eats.  I'm washing it tonight.)

Happy little guy!

Wesley and Mom playing with his new toy cups.  He thinks Mom is hilarious when she puts the cup on or in her mouth.  What a cutie!

More play time

Happy boy!

Wesley's new favorite thing is to bang his toys together or move them against his mouth while he makes noises.

Fun with cups.

Play time on Sunday

Wesley loves playing on the floor with his toys, getting up on his hands and knees, and rocking back and forth.  No crawling yet, but he does scoot himself backwards.

Wesley's Aunt Ann bought him this shirt and called it a "Charlie shirt".  Daddy has one almost exactly like it.


Super baby!

Sweet potato puffs

We've recently introduced Wesley to his first finger food.  These are sweet potato puffs from the Gerber graduates line.  He still has issues getting them into his mouth but occasionally he manages it.  His eyes light up when we pull out the canister now and he opens his mouth in anticipation.  I think they have sugar in them, so he only gets 1 or 2 puffs at a time.  It's good practice for his fingers though.  (We tried to get him to eat little pieces of banana this weekend, but he wasn't having any of it.  I think the texture was too weird for him.  We'll have to try again since the banana is probably a lot healthier for him than these puffs.)

New sound effects

In addition to the new "words" Wesley has been trying out, he's really into making new sound effects too.  Here's our current favorite.

Ya ya

More consonant sounds from Wesley.  He's favorite right now is "ya ya"

Getting ready to crawl

Wesley has started practicing his pre-crawl stance.  He loves to rock back and forth.  His teacher at daycare says he rocks so much when she puts him down for a nap that he manages to move the crib a few inches.  He does the same thing at home, but his crib at home is sturdier and doesn't move as much.
