She's married!

This past week, the boys and I had the privilege of traveling to Boston for Emily's wedding.  Emily and I have been friends for 15+ years and she's more like a sister to me than just a friend. I have been looking forward to this for a long time! We were in Boston from Wednesday-Tuesday so we were able to spend lots of time with family too which was really nice. I think the best way to document the week is through pictures!

On the way to Boston, the boys and I were on the same flight as Mallory, David, and Connor. I was so thankful for the company and a few extra hands to help with the boys!

Look how content he looks??  Oh wait, these headphones lasted for about .2 seconds and then he was over it...

Hudson loves to hold his brother's hand 

Enjoying Bubs and Lalla's hot tub!

Getting ready for the wedding!  She even trusted me enough to do her hair ;)

With Emily and her twin sister Diane...oh, and they have twin sisters.  Yes, there are two sets of twin girls in their family!

Isn't she the most beautiful bride??

First dance!

So thankful for time with all of these special people!

Notice that Hudson is missing his shoes.  It was an outdoor wedding and reception and his shoes stayed off the entire time.  But, at least he's wearing a shirt here...during the ceremony he was shirtless!  That's what happens when Bubs is in charge!

Weston was held by about 25 different people at the wedding...including some cousins!

Weston and Connor...the best of sleeping buddies!

On Sunday we had some of the family over for lunch. These three are so much fun together!

Hudson's first lobster experience!  He wasn't at all interested in eating it though.

Not pictured...the plane ride home when Hudson was over-tired and simply over traveling.  Needless to say, it was a VERY long 2 hours.  But, it was well worth it!
Love you Emily and Boomer and Congrats!!

Weston- 3 months

Measurements: Weston continues to grow like a weed! I don't know how much he weighs but I'm anxious to find out next month at his doctor's appointment. But, I do know he's a big boy! He has quite a few 6 month outfits that are comfortable.  He has outgrown most 3 month stuff and his 3-6 is getting too short in length. I actually had to buy a few new sleepers because Hudson wore 6 month sleepers in the fall/winter so they are all thicker, fleecy material. 

Eats:  Weston is nursing every 2-3 hours. Thankfully he takes a bottle no problem now! I worked a couple of long days and he didn't have a choice.  When I'm home I only nurse...who has time to pump with a crazy 2 year old to chase around?

Sleeps:  Although we aren't on a schedule, Weston definitely is a bit more predictable in his sleep now.  He generally naps about 1-1.5 hours after he wakes up in the morning. The, throughout they day, he usually stays awake for 1.5-2 hours after eating before he's ready for another nap. I try to have him in bed by 8 and he's waking usually only once a night. Although last night he slept straight through the night...woohoo!

Milestones:  Weston laughed for the first time this month!  It was just a little chuckle but baby laughs are the best! He's close to rolling from his back to his tummy but not quite there yet.  Also, Weston had his first airplane ride and he did great!

Likes:  My littlest man still likes to be held a lot. But, thankfully if he's well rested he will be content to lay on his playmate for a while. He likes to be interacted with and always smiles when he's being talked to. He is already a Momma's boy!  Chris gets frustrated at times because Weston can be super fussy but usually when I take him he calms down pretty quickly. 

Dislikes:  Weston has stopped liking the swing! And he doesn't like much tummy time. He also has a big dislike for the bath!  Good thing I only remember to bathe him a few times a week ;)  Second child problems...

Big brother update: Hudson is going through another phase of separation anxiety.  I'm hoping this is a short phase because he starts preschool in September and I want it to be a pleasant experience for all of us! Thankfully Hudson is back to sleeping through the night most nights, although he still has an occasional bad night here and there. I continue to be told often how smart he is which definitely makes this Mommy proud! He is still super sweet with Weston.  Just yesterday Weston was fussy and Hudson went up to him, gave him a kiss, and said "I love you brother". I hope they grow up to be the best of friends!
