More Westin Pics

I can't stop taking pictures of him. :) He makes so many faces that crack me up and melt my heart at the same time. I cannot get over how much he looks just like Cody! I wonder if I will ever see one of my features in him...



This duck outfit is one of the five newborn size outfits that he has. We have been doing a lot of laundry around here. We had to buy a few newborn PJ's after we got home and realized that he only had two that fit. As fast as he seems to be growing I bet he will be in his 0-3 month clothes soon.
He LOVES having his hair washed but he does not like getting a sponge bath. This boy likes to be warm and snuggly!
He is such a content baby. He usually only gets upset when we change his diaper. I could just kiss him, hold him and stare at him all day! I want to remember these sweet days. Our friend, Rachel took his newborn pictures when he was 8 days old. I will post some of my favorites soon!

He's a cutie, but I totally see you in him! I see your mom in him too! I guess it might be different if I saw him in person!

He is gorgeous! You are making me miss the newborn days SO much. Ahhh, I want another baby.

My little boy looks exactly like his daddy--but he is definitely a mama's boy and I love it!

So funny how you said you were looking for one of your attibrutes-I am still looking! All three of my boys look like my husband! No one looks like me here-
And little West is a darling! Enjoy this time with him, as I know You are!

Shannon, he is just precious! If it makes you feel better I've read babies always look like their fathers at birth. It's biological so a father in more likely to bond with a child and with time children tend to take on more of their mother's characteristics. He'll be looking more like you in no time, you're a beautiful couple though so either way this little boys cuteness will be irresistible. :)

Vashti said...

Shannon he is so lovely. What a tiny munchkin. LOVE the photos and that little ducky bum is the cutest!

Vashti said...

Dont worry about him not looking like you.....neither of mine look at bit like me ;-) (or their dad for that matter!!)

Reynie said...

He DOES look just like his Daddy! (well, from the pixs I've seen of your hubs anyway). Don't you just love him? Babies are wonderful! I had hardly any clothes for little bit when I brought her home but in no time, she was in 0-3. She's seven months now and in nine month clothes! How does that happen? So fast anyway? My word!

Rambling Girl said...

Just a sweet gift of God you have there, Shannon! I loved just holding and looking at my little ones also...Enjoy they grow way to fast!

Sunny said...

He looks so perfectly snuggly and sweet!

Olga said...

I love the little duck on his bum outfit! He is so cute :)

Alex and Jill said...

He does look just like Cody! He is so cute, Shannon. I have a girl that looks just like her Daddy and I wonder the same thing..."will she ever look like me!?" :)

They grow so fast. I remember not having anything that would fit Amelia when we brought her home (newborn was too big!), but now she's growing like a weed! I just packed up all of her 0-3 months and it made me sad.

Enjoy every minute of it...the days go by way too fast.

((hugs))

Leslie said...

I could just eat him right up! I bet you can't keep your hands off of him! So precious! Love the little ducky tushy! He is a beautiful baby, all that hair!

Amy said...

He is adorable!!! The newborn pictures that Rachel took are amazing - love that hat and love the pics of him on the bookshelf!!
Hope you are doing well and loving up that sweet boy!!

How could you NOT just love him to pieces. Baby faces are mesmerizing and you can't but be happy and joyful looking at them!!

Rebekah said...

Oh i wish i could give him a hug! He is precious. What a sweet time!

Cari said...

Shannon! He is just so darn cute!! I love all the new pics and just love all his hair.

I was the same way about not having many newborn clothes! Lincoln (who is a little over 5 weeks old and weighs 9 lb 12 oz. is STILL wearing SEVERAL newborn outfits!) I am just shocked. I put 0-3 months on him and they still swallow him up! Luckily, my neighbor let me borrow several outfits and I went and bought several too! Just thought I would give you the heads up that he may be wearing them for a while b/c I know I was shocked and not prepared with newborn attire!

Can't wait to see more pics and evenutally meet him in person!

Laura said...
