Wesley's Baby Blessing and 2 Months

Wow, life has been busy. That would be an understatement. I feel like I have had no time to do anything but work on the next project/task ahead. Which would be why I haven't posted in 2 months.
 Don't worry, you don't have to chastise me, I feel bad enough. :)
Anyway, let's take a little journey back.....2 months ago.......
It all started with a trip to Idaho for Zac's brother, Nic's, graduation. He also turned 18 the day after. It was great to be able to be with the Barrus family in Idaho before we all traveled to Ely. The drive to Ely was great actually. Gavin fell asleep while playing the iPad until Twin Falls, and then he rode with Grandma and Grandpa in their car the rest of the way. They said he talked the whole time. I guess they are more fun than we are. And Wesley slept most of the way so it was pretty chill for us. It is nice to have a baby that travels so well. We were in Ely for Wesley's baby blessing along with Dylan's baby blessing. We are so grateful for all the family/friends that were there. We love you all and are grateful for your love and support. Then a few days later we had my brother, Trevor's graduation. It was nice to see some of my old teachers. It made me feel really old to see kids that were in Elementary School when I graduated. Then we drove home. We spent almost 30 hours in the car driving from Colorado to Wyoming to Idaho to Nevada to Utah and back to Colorado. We were happy to be with family, but definitely ready to come home. Especially after a flu bug went around my Mom's house and almost everyone got sick. Zac and Gavin had to deal with it the whole way home but it wasn't too bad. Aside from an interesting gas station bathroom experience. I will spare you the gross details. :)

So here are some pictures from our trip....

 Then to Grandpa's shop to ride some more cool trucks. What a lucky 2-year old.

 Both babies, Wesley and Dylan. Dylan was 14 weeks and Wesley 7 weeks.

A few days after we got home we had Wesley's 2 Month Appointment. If you have not heard how much he has grown, be prepared to be shocked!

2 Months:
Weight: 16lbs 3oz (a weight gain of 9lbs 8oz in 6 weeks)
Height: 24in

The Dr. actually commented that I needed to be more observant about feeding cues of when he is full. I feed him less than I fed Gavin and he has gained faster than even Gavin has. Other than that he is perfect! His most common nickname around the house (aside from Wes) is Chunkers, we think it is suiting. :)

I LOVE these boys!
