Snapshot

Okay, so blogging is not my priority these days, because well...I've got 3 boys 3 and under. But here's a snapshot of life right about now...

Nathan and Lawson start a little preschool in the mornings 2 days a week next week. Yeah for learning!

Weston has 1 tooth, is almost crawling (gets on hands and knees for a lunge but can't put it all together just yet), eating solids and is loving life

Currently all boys are napping

My broom and dustpan can't keep up with my boys crumbs

I wish I could drink Dr Pepper all the time

I again win mom of the year for waiting until my kids foot is busting out of his shoe to upgrade to a new size. How do feet grow so fast? Size 9 to size 11 in a blink!

Lawson is potty training. He is doing awesome! Still some work to do, but going in the right direction

We're approaching fall in the bluegrass state which is my favorite season

Aggie football next week

Phillip is teaching 2 classes this fall semester

That's a wrap!

Weston at 1 & 2 months

Well, he's almost three months old now, but here is his 1 and 2 month stats for records sake:

At 1 month, he weighed 11 lbs 1 oz. Just a weight because he didn't have a real well check just went in for his next Hepatitis B booster. Has one feeding in the middle of the night.

At 2 months:
23 in
13 lbs 2 oz
16 1/4 in head circumference
Started smiling! Slept through the night the first time at 7 weeks old. Did it twice then back to waking up once until 10 weeks old. Now sleeping through like a little champion!

I will still say that he has been the easiest baby so far, but I also think that as a parent you just kinda know what's going on better. One of our pediatricians said: "If you could keep the wonder of having the first child and combine it with the experience of the third, you'd be set." I do think there is awe and wonder present, you just have to be more aware to notice than you did with the first child. He is such a social guy! He much prefers having someone to chat to and really likes chatting with Nathan!

 Here are some photos:

1 month old

2 months old

People say ALL the time how much of a little Bethancourt boy he is! Meaning he looks like his brothers! Sometimes they say it's Lawson, sometimes Nathan. We think he tends to favor Nathan more and his Daddy the most of any of the boys. Can't wait for him to grow into a little man running around with his brothers!!

Weston at 2 Weeks

2 week stats:

Height: 21 3/4 in (95-98%)
Weight: 9 lbs 4.5 oz (75-90%)
Head Circumference: 15 in (95-98%)

Weston is still a big fellow! He was just a couple ounces shy of his birth weight, but still growing well and on track. He got a clean bill of health.

He is truly a delightful baby! My easiest (baby) son so far! And the first 2 were easy babies as well! I kept praying while he was in the womb that he would be like his father (a 3rd son) and be an easygoing child who was content and calm. And the Lord has answered those prayers!

At 2 weeks, Weston is getting up twice at night and a few times only once. Eats every 3 hrs during the day. Mostly just hangs out and sleeps. He has a stuffy nose that plagues his eating sometimes--hard to eat if you can't breathe out of your nose, but it's getting better. He had his first dinner out with the family to Smashburger and thoroughly enjoyed it and by that I mean slept through the dinner!

We look forward to how he will grow and develop in the coming weeks! Another delightful Bethancourt boy!

Happy Due Date Weston!


Well son, you have followed in the footsteps of your brothers...

You have made it to 40 weeks.

I hope this shows something about you Bethancourt boys: mostly that you have perseverance and know how to stick with something until it's done! No quitting early in this family!!

We got to celebrate your due date Weston by going to eat dinner at Chick-fil-a and your older brothers played on the playground (which I know you will be climbing before I know it)! We even let them get some ice cream in your honor! Your mama made a stop at the convenience store for her dessert: a Snickers ice cream bar. Boy was it tasty!

We are so ready to meet you and see what little man God has knit together for our 3rd son. Nathan keeps asking if Weston Luke is still in my tummy and I must, for now, say "yes." You should be with us very soon and we look forward to what being a family of 5 is like and all of the joy and adventure you will add to our Bethancourt abode.

Weston, we love you and pray that you will be a blessing to this family. See you soon!

Love,
Dad, Mama, Nathan and Lawson

A Baby's a Comin'

Well I've been cleaning and cleaning and cleaning some more
It must mean a baby's a comin'
There's swaddle blankets out and tiny socks folded
It must mean a baby's a comin
His brothers are asking all about him
It must mean a baby's a comin'
There's excitement and hope and a twinge of fear
It must mean a baby's a comin'
Prayers abound for a boy we haven't yet seen
It must mean a baby's a comin'
He will make our family of 5
It must mean a baby's a comin'
The month of February is almost here
It must mean a baby's a comin'
Weston you are on our minds and hearts
It must mean a baby's a comin'
