11 Months Old!





Trey turned 11 months old this past weekend! It's so hard to believe that almost an entire year has gone by- the phrase "cherish every moment, because they grow up so fast" is undeniable! Trey has been toddling around, attempting to walk, for a while. Although he is still only taking 5 or 6 steps at a time, I've noticed a big change this week. Now he stands up in the middle of the room and takes those few steps all by himself, with no prompting!

This was a rough week for the family- we lost a very dear friend, our pastor, who not only counseled and married Doug and I, but Mr. Hornby also dedicated Trey. I feel such a loss at all of the parts of my life that Mr. Hornby will never know, but I am unbelievably grateful for all the moments that he celebrated with us. We spent the weekend in Richmond, to honor Mr. Hornby's life, and Trey was amazing. He was wonderful all weekend long- Trey never had a meltdown, despite all the strangers (to him) that wanted to hold him, hug him, carry him around, and basically invade his space!

We also went to Gymboree, and had a super fun playdate at Noreen's. In both places, Trey was the ONLY boy! This has become quite the trend, and I keep asking myself- where the heck are all the little boys??? One thing is for sure- Trey is going to have his pick of girlfriends!

Some new items of the week: Trey experienced popcorn (thanks to his Daddy) and he loves it! I was a little concerned about the kernels and kernel shells, but Doug insisted he was fine, so I went with it. AND- Trey had his very first baby modeling shoot! It's a long story how that came about, but Trey apparently has a "look", and he did an amazing job! We just got the pictures back today, and they are so stinkin cute! I can't wait to share them with all of you!

This week we are planning on transitioning to ONLY sippy cups during the day, but keeping the bottle at bedtime... I'll let you know how that goes!

An Unforgettable Valentine's Day








Our Valentine's Day was more memorable than anything holiday we have celebrated, to date. I will share more details soon, but for now, I'll share with you Trey's week!

The week started off with a huge Super Bowl party at our neighbor's house, where Trey was surrounded by other kids to play with! He was such a trooper and managed to stay up for the entire game!
We went back to the ENT doctor for a follow up on Trey's tubes, and Trey had his first hearing
test. He did really well, but there is still some concern about his high pitched sounds, and as Trey learns to communicate verbally, we will have to watch his "S's" and "Sh's"- basically any sound that is classified as "high pitched".

We had a fun lunch with Melissa and our little buddy Eddie. Those boys are so cute together- they completely entertained themsevles throughout lunch by sharing avocado and banging on the table. Trey also had an afternoon playdate with Ella... they play great, but I can see that we are going to have to work on Trey's sharing skills!

On Friday, we made the decision to join the Level 3 Gymboree Class!!! Trey has been ready for a while, but I was resisting because I was attached to the other Mommies in the Level 2 class. But once we got there on Friday, Trey was SO excited and the class was much less structured and allowed Trey to go crazy with crawling, climbing, and walking, and he had a blast! I can always make new friends :).
Grandma and Aunt Nancy came to visit this past weekend, and we spent an evening with Uncle Adam and Aunt Shannon- where Trey started off a little cranky, but was quite the ham by the end of the night :).

Trey LOVES riding his horsey- it's definitely a favorite, and he pulls it out and shakes the horse until someone puts him on top. Honestly, I'm getting a little tired of the horsey sounds, but I know how much he loves it, so I will suck it up and continue to play with him!

Valentine's Day brought a lazy day of Baby's First Valentine's cards, yummy meals, and just hanging out... nothing too eventful, but like I said, it was a Valentine's Day I will never forget ;-).

Valentine's Day is on it's Way!







Where to start with this week... we visited 2 parks- North Meck Park (always a favorite) and Veteran's Park, downtown. Trey loves the slide and swings, so it's there is never a dull moment at the playground! We also went to 2 playdates- a Valentine's playdate at Hillary's house (where there were 9 babies all almost the exact same age), and a birthday playdate for Miss Grace! Tuesday was also Groundhog's Day, so Trey's school celebrated by all the kids wearing their jammies and watching a movie; they are so cute!

The other great news is that Trey is feeling a thousand times better THANK GOODNESS!!!! After the tubes were put in, he was still extra fussy and running a fever, so we went back to the doctor to find out that Trey had bronchitis- what the heck?!?!? For a while there I was starting to feel like I have the sickliest baby on the face of the planet, but this week brought new hope, and it's been wonderful! He is still a little fussy- his top and bottom molars are coming in on the left side, but all in all, he's doing great!

Trey is eating and sleeping like a pro these days. Every day this week he has been taking at least 2 hour naps in the afternoon (around 1pm) and he is eating everything in sight. Turns out he LOVES my homemade macaroni and cheese, Macaroni Grill's chicken, and birthday cake (of course).

He is walking with his walker toys everywhere, and it is so cute to watch him play. I actually took a video of him playing after dinner the other night. It's not action-packed, but it was adorable just to see the way he processes everything and plays with his toys. We also got some new blocks, and Trey loves for someone to build them up, so he can push them all down- typical boy!
We also took a few early birthday boy pictures to put in his Birthday Party invitations. I still am having a hard time processing the fact that he is going to be 1 years old! Yikes!
