EVERY DAY, as the clock approaches 4:00pm or later, Trey starts asking for "Dada" and checking the front door windows constantly. He simply cannot wait for Doug to get home! And as soon as Doug DOES get home, Trey sits down on the steps, and helps put his work boots away, and then takes Doug's dirty socks to the laundry room. I don't know how, why, or when this routine began, but it is precious to watch, and I finally had enough sense to get a short recording of the process :).
Last week we began letting Trey sleep with a pillow. He has wanted a pillow for a while now, whenever he is in our bedroom, and I know most pediatrician's recommend waiting until children are around 2 years old, or are transitioning to a toddler bed, but we started a little early. I am completely confident in Trey's ability to lift up his head if he is feeling "smothered", and the pillow is VERY flat- trust me! He gets so excited about his crib and it was a fun milestone to start :).
We visited a new park this week too- the Treadtown Park in Huntersville. This park is perfect for younger children and we had lots of fun! The last fun part to our week was getting to view the Maternity Pictures from our photo shoot with Melody... I added a few "peaks", but these definitely don't come close to how beautiful they all were! Melody with SnookySmiles Photography (button at the bottom of the blog) is WONDERFUL!
