One Week Old & The Kite Flying Festival

It's hard to believe Wesley is already a week old. He had his first check-up today. The doctor confirmed that he does have a bit of jaundice, but also that he is not too worried about it. Wesley left the hospital weighing 8lbs. 5oz., and now weighs 8lbs. 13oz. So, he must be getting something to eat! We'll go back next week for another quick check-up.

So far, all we know about our baby Wesley is that he is a chill baby. He pretty much only cries when he wants to eat or when he has bubble in his tummy. He's pretty good about sleeping right through the crazy antics of Katelyn and Joshua. There isn't a moment that I don't enjoy with him, even when he's crying. Here are some pictures of Wesley's first week at home.

Over the weekend, we were dying to get out of the house, so we took all of the kids to a kite flying festival in a nearby neighborhood. It was an incredibly beautiful day outside, 75 degrees and clear blue skies. The festival was small, but perfect for the kids. We took a ride on a tram painted like a firetruck and ate water ice on the grass. It was a perfect spring afternoon.
