A Few of Wes's Favorite Things

I'm going to take a cue from my good friend Jess's Blog and share with you some of my 2 year old's favorite things.
Wes is constantly talking about Lightning and Mater. He also loves Frank, the guardian of the tractors who chases Lightning and Mater after they tip all the tractors. He calls him the bad guy.

My mom found this table and chair set at a yard sale lasts summer (for $5!) and Wes has loved it ever since. He loves to set out dinner parties for his friends. Tigger, Pooh Bear, Bear, and Monkey.

And, of course, he needs his kitchen to complete his Dinner Parties. He got this kitchen for Christmas this year (it took Tad 4 hours to put it together) and there hasn't been a day yet that he hasn't spent hours playing with it.

His Monkey
Monkey is another gift from my mom. Wes pulled him out of a bin of stuffed animals she keeps at her house, and they've been best friends ever since. Wes takes such good care of his monkey, he love to get him dressed, feed him, take him for rides, brush his teeth and everything else he sees us do for him or Scarlett. We've had a couple of scares with loosing Monkey, but so far we've been able to find him.

At the moment Wes's favorite movies are Monster House, How To Train Your Dragon, The Backyardigans Singing Sensation, and The Hulk. Not the cartoon Hulk, the Edward Norton Hulk. He asks to watch it over and over again. Wes loves any movie or show that has 'scary parts'. He sits clutching his monkey wide-eyed as he watches the scary scene, but when it's over he wants to watch it again!
Since seeing the movie his Hulk obsession has grown. This is the comforter on his bed.

And the big boy underpants he picked out for when we start potty training (which we haven't yet).

His favorite activity is running in circles, especially if he's got company like his 2 cousins. This is a video of Wes and his cousins Ainsley and Gavin at the zoo last summer.

Ball was Wes's first word and it's still one of his favorite things. You can't let him see the big ball bin at Walmart unless you have 20 minutes to spend explaining to him why he can't take them all home with him.

#1 Scarlett
He can hardly control his excitement for his little sister. Although he does tend to get a little too excited and be a little too rough with her, it's very sweet how much he loves her.

#2 Ethan
Ethan is probably Wes's best friend. He lives in the apartment above us and they have a blast together (when they aren't beating the crap out of each other that is).

#3 Daddy
Finally, Tad is Wes's favorite person of all time. Since he was a tiny boy he's always picked Tad first. I can't say I'm not a little jealous, but who can be mad at that face?!


  1. Ahhh Wes is so cute. I thought I was one of his favorite people! :) j/k Hope we get to see you guys soon!

  2. I love this post. I can't believe your like 1/2 mile away and I never see this stuff in person. He is such a cutie.

  3. all I can say is I want an invite to one of those dinner parties :) He's such a sweetie!
