Happy Birthday Wesley


Today my big boy turns 9


He was born 8 weeks early weighing a whopping 4 pounds 9 ounces and 17 inches long He is now one of the tallest boys in the 3rd grade (He only drinks milk, he doesn't like soda!)



When he was born Kendell wanted them to take him to the NICU immediately - he was worried about a lack of oxygen to his brain cells. He spent a week on a ventilator, a month in the NICU, and 5 weeks on oxygen and an apnea monitor. This little boy who had to work to hard to breathe and move oxygen to those brain cells is now one very smart little boy!



When Wesley was a few months old we took him to Washington DC - Thereby starting his love affair with history and geography. He is a walking, talking globe and I am confident he knows more history than I do.



He just finished reading all 7 Harry Potter books over the last couple of weeks and has now started on the Series of Unfortunate Events books. He likes to play basketball - but his love for reading affects his athletic prowess - but I anticipate that will improve with time.

This weekend for his birthday we traveled to the City Museum in St. Louis. This is the world's most cool children's museum. If you have not taken your kids there - you must. It is so much fun. We stayed for about 6 hours and didn't even have to stop to feed the kids! I am excited to take the kids back in the summer so they can try out MonstroCity - It is outdoors and was closed since the temperature was only in the 30's. The kids had such a good time - Happy Happy Birthday Wesley!!!!!!!!!!!!
