A WHOLE month has gone by since I gave birth to my sweet baby boy. I can’t get over the fact that I’ll be doing monthly updates for another baby! Peyton and Weston are VASTLY different, just as I anticipated during my pregnancy with him. It’ll be interesting to see their differences as he gets older.
I truly think I have a special intuition when it comes to being pregnant with my babies. I knew their personalities before I met them. I knew Peyton would be stubborn, independent, and strong. I also knew Weston was going to be my sensitive boy and he sure is! ( I also predicted that he would be sweet and kindhearted like his daddy… we will see)! He’s very sensitive when it comes to just about anything LOL He is quite the fussy babe sometimes, hates getting his diaper changed, and has a bit of reflux. His isn’t nearly as bad as Peyton’s was though and it already seems to be improving!
If you follow our Facebook page, you may have seen that we have been bringing him to the chiropractor. He favors one side of his head and when he gets his adjustments he immediately has full range of motion. It’s amazing. We really feel it has been helping him with his reflux too! (Baby adjustments are extremely gentle and there is no popping and cracking like you hear with an adult adjustment).
Weston has the biggest brown eyes! He is so handsome and I can’t wait to see how his face changes over time. AND the verdict is obviously in… and Weston does not have piebaldism! For those of you who don’t know, Peyton has piebaldism from her daddy! You may have noticed Aaron’s white forelock and Peyton was born with one too (hers has faded over time). She also has hypopigmented spots on her stomach and legs. Weston had a 50/50 chance of inheriting that but did not.
When we left the hospital, he was around 7 lbs 13 ounces. Weston is now 11 lbs 2 ounces! He has been gaining so much weight, we can see the rolls forming right before our eyes! He’s SO much bigger than Peyton was. It’s amazing how you can make two completely different babies. He loves tummy time, his play gym, his swing, and when I sing to him. He LOVES to eat and he would stay on me all day if he could lol
