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!
