Here’s Wesley and his mum Amy is just smitten with him (with good reason)!
He took 7 unassisted steps yesterday! A year ago, he was just learning to sit up on his own. To go from just sitting up to taking independent steps in the span of a year is pretty amazing to me!
We recently returned from a beach vacation and I do believe that may be Wesley’s new favorite place. There was a day that was rainy and the waves were hazardous, and Wesley came crawling over with his sunscreen and signed “please” to my husband and then me after my husband told him we couldn’t go out that day. When I told him we weren’t going to the beach, he started crying. Poor guy!
Wesley also loves to dance. His favorite songs at the moment are “Shake it Off” by Taylor Swift and “Roar” by Katy Perry. He usually requests both by name in the morning while eating his breakfast and dances while he eats. (We also use the songs as motivation during his weekly physical therapy sessions).
I hope that gives you some insight into our sweet guy. We are so blessed to have him in our lives!
