Long time no blog

Wow, I can't believe it has been since October that I last posted. I have just been so busy with work and my family. Trigg is now 6 months old.

-wearing size 3 diaper
-weights 16lbs 8oz.
-wears 6-9 months clothes
-two bottom teeth
-can say mama and move his mouth like he wants to say more
-can rollover both ways
-can sit up on his own for about 30 secs to a minute
-stands like no body's business
-has his own personality already
-loves, loves, loves Mickey Mouse Clubhouse
-snuggles all the time
-still sleeping in his pack n play crib in our bedroom :)

I just can't believe how big he is getting and how fast! Amazing. Kaid is doing great too. He is losing his teeth left and right. It's funny, Kaid is losing them and Trigg is getting them. This will be the first Christmas w/ both the boys so we are super excited!

Below are some pictures of the boys from the past few months. I hope to blog more often from this point on but sometimes time slips away from me :)

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Trigg said his first word on October 26th...MAMA!
That's right, not dada, but Mama. I was so happy to hear this. He has been mumbling and making noise's for several weeks and we kept hearing the M sound in his cooing so we have been working with him on saying mama and sure enough he said it. He said it yesterday at his nanny's house, then again twice last night to my brother and then he said it to me this morning!

I am so proud of my little man, and I love this feeling right now!
Halloween! What a great holiday. I took the boys to the pumpkin patch a few weeks ago and Kaid picked out two pumpkins for him and his brother Trigg. I will be posting those pics later (they are on my other computer). Ryan carved the boys pumpkins this last weekend. Kaid wanted a gargole, dragon like one and then we picked a cute pumpkin face for Trigg. Ryan did such a good job on these! It took him two days to do them but it was worth the wait.

Spooky! :)

Then it was a mini photo session!

We indroduced solid foods to Trigg this past weekend. We started with one of momma's faviorte's pees. I love pees but I do have to say that all smashed up they are not very appealing. Trigg likes them and has no allergies to them so far. Yea!

It is so fun feeding him and watching all his funny faces he makes. They say not to judge whether a baby likes the food by his/her face b/c it's a new texture and taste so there will be faces but by if he/she opens their mouth for an encore. Well this is so funny b/c I was feeding Trigg some pees for lunch at Ryan's parents house and he was on his like 5th bite when all of a sudden his right arm went up into the air, his face became so serious with his cheeks pushed out and his lips puckered, he was concentrating on the spoon so hard, and without a warning down came his arm and the spoon went flying and pees went all over him and me. It was so funny!

Luckly he opened his mouth for more so I didn't take that as a sign he was done with pees. Good stuff!

Here are just some random shots of Trigg and his daddy!

Ohhhh, I so tired but I don't want to go to sleep!

Love my daddy!

4 months!

Trigg turned 4 months this past Sunday and I just can't believe how big he is getting! He weights 14lbs exactly and I am not sure on his height, his actual 4 month check up isn't till November (doc's office is a little busy). I weighted him myself the other day.

What he is doing:

-can rollover but rarely does
-can lift himself about a quarter inch from a laying or sitting position (like baby sit ups)
-coos and makes high pitch sounds like crazy
-starting to chuckle
-drooling like crazy
-eating 8oz now
-eating more like every 4-5 hrs
-sleeping through the night, except for the past two weeks...
-grabbing and pulling on everything in his reach
-putting anything he can in his mouth
-wearing 3-6 month clothes
-wearing size 1 shoe (some size 2's)
-loves to be held (for hours) :)
-is such a happy baby

He is my little ball of sunshine!

By the way, I got one of my Christmas gifts from Ryan's parents early...I finally got the Canon Rebel EOS XLT Camera I have been wanting for a long time. I am testing it out to make sure it's what I want and I love it. I am hoping they let me go ahead and keep it and not make me wait till Christmas. :) The pictures are amazing...Trigg had a photo shoot last night. :)I love my in-laws, they are so good to me!

Something new...

Well I traded in my Honda for this 2010 Camry. We were looking for something cheaper in payments and also roomier on the inside. Believe it or not, the Camry has a lot more room than my CR-V had plus the ride and drive of the Camry is amazing!Zero road noise and its so comfortable I could fall asleep in the seats. We were surprised as anyone that going brand new would actually save us money but sure enough it did!

Don't mind Ryan's truck in the background it just has a dead battery...He was cleaning his truck out and left the key in the on position all night so the next morning it was dead, thank goodness his parents are on vacation and he can borrow his dad's hummer until his truck works again. MEN!

I miss my Honda but am really happy we bought the Camry!

Ryan took Trigg for an evening stroll and it was pretty chilly so my little guy had to get bundled up...He loves to be outside.

Night, Night!

Catch up

Boy do I have lots to say since it's been like forever since I posted last but to spare the few readers I have I will keep this semi-short and just let you enjoy the pics!

My baby boy is 15 weeks old! I can't beleive how big he is getting. I am so happy to see him grow and love every new thing he learns but I miss him being my small newborn. Now I know why mom's have kids so close together...u miss the baby phase.

This is Trigg's first hair do! His hair is really thin so it's hard to style it right now but his daddy tried and this is what we got. I love these pictures.

Look at those eyes!

This past Friday night Ryan and I took Kaid to eat at Shogun's (our faviorate resturant) while my in-laws watched Trigg. We wanted to spend some time with just Kaid. We had to take a family photo op before we left Ryan's parents though...

We had a really good time, and the food was so good, as usual.

Kaid was trying to use the chop sticks and it was so funny, it was taking him a long time to eat his rice that way, so he finally gave up and used his fork.

Trigg & momma just hanging out watching the razorback game!

We finally got some new living room furniture. We got a sectional and a big over sized swival chair. It is so much nicer, now we have more seating in our living room than we did before.

Here are a few pics of our boys! Arn't the just so great!

A few weeks back Kaid participated in the Prairie Grove Clothsline Fair, he squared danced with his best friend, neighbor and class mate, Shayla. They were so cute.

Here's a random pic of Trigg enjoying his bouncer/walker. He is still a bit small for it but loves it for about 10 minutes. He knows that if you hit the animals that it will light up and play music. I have such a smart boy!

Well we have been super busy and it just gets busier so hopefully I can post more often and the post won't be so long!
