Two and a Half Months Later

...Weston's announcement finally goes out.  Oh well.  It's done.

Giving Thanks

A Few Things to Be Thankful For This Thanksgiving:

1.)  Brett getting the ENTIRE week of Thanksgiving off of work.  Wahoo!!  (Too bad, so sad for Christmas.)
2.)  A totally content sleeping baby during the 1 1/2 hour flight to Utah.
3.)  Having ALL SEVEN of Brett's siblings together for a few days to bless Baby Jaxon.
4.)  Weston meeting most of his Blaser aunts, uncles, and cousins including his future partner-in-crime, cousin Jaxon, born only 8 days before him.
5.) Tons of fun family activities including some riveting games of tennis, two trips to the movies (Weston did great in both!), and an amazing day at the Flowrider.
6.)  The opportunity to meet up with some of our BFF's, the Chamberlains, for some of the most delicious hot chocolate EVER from Hunts Family Chocolates, aka "The Little Chocolatiers"!  Also, getting to see their handsomest little man Isaac again.
7.) TWO Thanksgiving meals, one with each family, especially since Brett was incapacitated during the first one with the stomach flu.
8.) Brett getting over his stomach flu BEFORE we had to fly back home at Arizona. PHEW!!
9.) My brother and sister arriving safely home to Arizona from BYU after flying thru a "record-setting" blizzard, and them FINALLY getting to meet Weston.
10.) A competitive game of Tripoley complete with some amazing, and not so amazing, dollar prizes!
11.) The fact that there is only ONE baby in the Jones family right now, because getting a family pic was hard enough.  Yes, this pic is doctored. :)

Baby Terrorist

I can officially say...TSA does NOT discriminate or profile.  While stumbling through security on our way to Utah, the TSA agent kindly reminded me, "You need to remove those shoes."  I looked down at my sock-cladden feet... and then realized he was talking about Weston's 2 inch newborn shoes.  Go figure.  I guess he might try to take over the cockpit.  You never know.

Weston's Newborns

I guess when your baby is two months old, it's about time to post his newborn photos.  Thanks so much to Libby who captured these amazing photos when he was 8 days old.  BTW, be on the lookout for his announcement.  It's coming soon.  I promise! :)


How pathetic is it that I'm just now posting about a visit from the Willms that occurred over a MONTH ago?!  Pretty pathetic. 
That aside, we were SOOO lucky to have a quick visit from Jon, Mandy, and Maddy last month.  We've been missing ALL our medical school friends like CRAZY, so there was nothing like a ritualistic night out to Cafe Rumba and Juju Berri to raise the spirits and subdue the nostalgia.  There was also nothing crazier than seeing baby Maddy running around and talking.  How time flies!!  Thanks so much to the Willms for taking some time to come visit us during your vacation.  We miss you guys!

Newborn No More

Sniff sniff. 
Apparently my newborn is no longer a newborn.  Today, at 6 weeks old, we upgraded Weston from Newborn to Size 1 diapers.  I know there's not THAT much size difference between the two, but to me the Size 1's look H-U-G-E, too huge to fit my little newborn, but alas, they are not.  Sniff sniff.

It is SO true that they grow and change so fast.  I can't believe he is 6 weeks today!  The other day I asked Brett why baby fingernails grow so quick.  His quick and all too simple answer: "Because their whole bodies grow so quick."  Duh!!

Weston's "stats" from his last apt. at 5 weeks:
Height: 22 1/2 in. (80th %ile) 
Weight: 10 lbs. 0 oz.  (50th %ile)
Head Cir.: 14 1/4 in. (30th %ile)

Weston's pediatrician was VERY happy with his rapid weight gain because at his last appointment only a few weeks before this one, he was measuring 80th %ile for height, but only 15th %ile for weight!  LONG and LEAN!  He's definitely figured out how to eat since then and is now putting on weight like a champ, jumping up 35%ile in a matter of a few weeks!  This could partially due to the fact that he's also developed some colicky gas issues in the last few weeks, and feeding him more often keeps him happier.  As a result, he's recently developed his first thigh creases and some chubby cheeks that chipmunks would be envious of. :)

A few things Weston likes:
bath time, his swing/bouncer, his Mylicon drops (thankfully!), being swaddled, his car seat, sucking his thumb (we will quickly be putting an end to this), and cuddling

A few things Weston does NOT like: 
tummy time, cold hands, having his clothes changed, being set down or ignored, his sling, and church

Weston rocked the vote!  The volunteers got a look at this face and couldn't help making an exception to the voting age.

Partyin' 'Till the Cows Come In

How is it that now that I am home all day long I have less time to blog than ever before?  Pathetic, I know.  I'm making a resolution to be better again.

Some friends from our ward threw a fantastic Halloween couples costume party a few weekends ago.  Brett had to work (as usual) so I wasn't planning on going and didn't plan a costume.  Well, most of you know I HATE to miss out on a party, so a few hours before the party started I decided to pack Weston up and take him as my date!  I wasn't about to suffocate my 3 week old baby in a huge fluffy Halloween costume, so I decided this cow onesie would work.  I scoured around my house for something that goes with a cow, and in about 5 minutes pulled together this farmer outfit for myself.  Not one of my better Halloween costumes, but it worked.  We had such a good time, and it was a great excuse to get out of the house.  Thanks so much to the Davises for a great night!
 There were SO many amazing costumes!  By the time we decided to get a group pic, about half of the couples had already left :( , but here's a pic with some of the gals who were still there.
So funny that both the Pages and the Ashtons dressed up like old folks!
 And the winners of the costume party and $100 prize... the Piepers as Kanye and Taylor Swift.  They looked great!

Weston Jones Blaser

Sorry again for the following major ONSLAUGHT of posts.  ENJOY!! :)

Introducing: Weston Jones Blaser

Weight: 7 1bs. 4 oz.
Length: 21 in.

Things went smoothly, and everyone is healthy and happy. 

I've obviously been completely distracted by and utterly infatuated with this little boy, so much so that it took me TWO whole WEEKS to post any pics of him.  Sorry.  :) 
If you are interested in the labor and delivery details or what we've been up to the last few weeks (which isn't much besides eating and sleeping), feel free to scroll through the many following posts.

Keeping Busy

What have we been doing the last two weeks, instead of blogging?  Taking a ridiculous amount of pics, and doing the following...

...keeping Weston smelling so fresh and so clean
...enjoying a very quick afternoon visit from Grandpa and Grandma Blaser
...taking naps
...cheering on the Cards
...attempting to take some fun baby Weston photos
...and just being cute.
