February Update:-)

Hi Friends & Family!  I've been reminded that its been a while since I've updated our blog.... nearly a month now.  Times flies so fast these days... sorry about that! 

At this moment we are in the middle of a big snowstorm... expecting a couple of feet.  We'll see if that happens.  But if it does, we are all set to go... picked out our favorite movies, bought our favorite junk food and most importantly... yes we have bread, milk and toilet paper;-)

At this moment, Trey, Pj and the dog are all fast asleep!  Trey has been sleeping really well lately.  He's at the tail end of his 3 month growth spurt we think.  It was a rough couple of days, but now he is definitely sleeping better.  But I think most of the praise goes to the thumb!  He knows how to get in and suck when he's tired and cranky... and its been a life saver for us!  The days of having to rock him and do squats in order to get him to sleep is disappearing.  Most times all I have to do is notice when he's ready, put him on his stomach in the crib and put a blanket on him.  He does the rest!

Trey has grown up so much this past month.  I know I say that each time I write here, but it is even more true this past month.  Physically, he has gotten very chubby and boyish looking... the newborn look is definitely gone.  Most of the time he has a goofy grin with drool dripping off his chin as he plays with his toys ferociously or when he's doing his favorite thing... hanging out with people!  He's gotten so strong too.  Last week I propped him up in a sitting position in front of me... which I do alot.  But this time when I let go he kept sitting, propped on his hands for support.  I was shocked!  He's gotten better and better at it as the week has gone by.

We love the new sounds Trey is making!  When he gets mad and grouchy, he makes alot of angry "Booo Bahhh Agghhh" sounds.  We know he's REALLY mad when he screams "Mamamaaaa Maaammaa".  But our favorite is his laugh... it's the cutest thing in the world.  He things his changing table is talking time for some reason.  And his favorite thing is when we bounce him really rough and fast or "throw" him up in the air (our hands never leave him though).  I'm thinking my little boy is going to want to go skydiving some day though, lol.

Oh, and did I mention he is 3 months old now?  Again, its crazy how time flies!  Part of me is sad too... I had to pack away most of his 0-3 months clothes.  His baby tub is starting to get to little (he's too long for it).  He's "graduated" from his playmat and some of his other toys.  Before I know it he'll be in college;-)

Oh, lastly, the latest development is that Trey has started noticing our dog.  Lilbit couldn't care less about Trey, but Trey is fascinated with Lilbit.  He stares at him and laughs and when the dog howls his eyes get so big.  He reaches out to pet him too.  It's really cute!  I hope things continue to go well between the two of them:-)

Well, that's it for now!  Here are some pictures:-)

9 weeks: First time he waved a rattle around on his own.

9 weeks: Meeting "Lucky" the dog for the first time.

10 weeks: Playing with Ella Geary (the 4 month old daughter of my best friend)

10 Weeks: Favorite new game... being "tossed" in the air!

10 Weeks: Enjoying tummy time a bit more when propped up on a pillow.

11 Weeks: First time sitting up on his own when propped into the position!

11 Weeks:  First sink bath while snowed in at Pj's parents'.

12 Weeks: Sitting in his new Bumbo the day after we got it... the happiness lasted only for a few seconds... he's still learning to love it!

12 Weeks: Sucking on both lips... he does this alot... its funny looking!

We're at Pj's parent's beach house in Corrolla, NC (Outer Banks) this week and so far its been really nice and relaxing.  Pj's family is here and we rang in 2010 the other night (Trey was fast asleep)!  Good times:-)  We really love being down here, so it will be hard to leave tomorrow.  I was able to walk down to the beach the other day and it was crazy how big the waves were.  A hurricane passed through a few weeks ago and it looks like it sliced half of the sand dunes away... leaving the walkways dangling.  Still haven't brought Trey down to the beach... hope to tomorrow if its not too cold for him.  It will be better when we're back here for vacation in July... and by then he'll be crawling around and eating sand;-)

Trey is now two months old.  Last week I put him on scale and he was about 11 lbs and 6 oz we think.  Not sure what he is now.  But he has changed and grown so much!  Just this past week he has really started to interact with everyone so much more and will try to talk to us (cute vocalizations of all kinds:-)).  He still loves his baths and has discovered how to splash all the water out of the tub and hasn't failed to poop while he is in there yet.  I was told he pooped three times last night in the tub!  He can push his whole upper chest up and keep his head upright and turn it from one side to another with being a bobble head.  He seems to be trying to crawl, but of course hasn't started yet thank goodness.  But I have a feeling he will be not long from now... maybe another month or two.  We'll see!
