Trey Nine Months Old

Weight - 23 lb 10 oz (96th percentile)
Height - 31 in (off the charts)
Clothes - 18 month, some 12-18 month
Diapers - Size 4 

Little man is still the happiest kid ever.  I don't get it.  I thought I had happy/smiley kids until I had Trey.  He's outrageous.  My absolute favorite thing is getting Trey out of his crib in the morning.  I can see that he's awake on the video monitor and the second I open his door I can hear him laughing and snorting.  He rolls over and arches his back in excitement until I go grab him.  Oh my gosh.  It's the cutest thing.  When I bring him downstairs he looks around for his siblings (or maybe his bottle) I can't really tell, but he's excited about something.  

Trey hates baby food.  He's the hardest kid to feed.  He turns his head and won't open his mouth.  They only way I can get the spoon in is to make him laugh and then pop the spoon in as fast as I can.  He gags like crazy on the tiniest morsel of food.  He can't even eat those puffs or yogurt bites yet.  Haha..  Oh well.  I'm sure it'll come in the next couple months.  For now he just drinks his bottle 4 times a day (every 4 hours).

Trey sleeps 8:30pm-8:30am and naps twice a day (10:30am-12:30pm and 2:30pm-4:45pm).  He used to take a little catnap around 6, but not any more.  I tried to take him upstairs to his crib around that time and he would just cry and cry and not want to go down, so I just let him stay up now.  It's crazy how he knows it's not nap time.  He goes down SO easy at 10:30am and 2:30pm, but then wants to stay up until 8:30pm.  

Trey is still obsessed with his blanket.  He shoves it in his mouth and just sucks away.  It's so funny.  He also loves the bath and being outside or going for walks.  He also loves to be on the trampoline while his siblings jump and bounce around.  Trey finally learned how to sit up and can crawl around now.  He can get to pretty much any toy he wants, which is great.  Trey's favorite toys are the Sophie giraffe and anything he can chew on that makes noise.  He has almost 7 teeth!! He broke the top L (#5) on April 5th and the top R (#6) on April 21. The bottom L (#7) is making it's way out too.   He is just the best little kid ever.  We love him.

Easter 2015

This year we spent Easter up in Hollister with my parents, my sister Stephanie and her kids, and my brother Mitch and his family.  Curtis had to fly out Sunday night and travel all the next week for work, so it was great to be with family while he was away.  Curtis' parents were also in town Sunday morning since they came up Saturday for the triplets birthday as well.  It was great having them there too!  They stayed for the Easter Egg Hunt and then traveled home.

Sharing with Cruz 

 Julie would rather swing...
 Kash would rather ride...
 And Cruz too.  They could care less about all the eggs. 

 Baba celebrated her 95th birthday - the same day as Cruz, Kash & Julie!

My sister and I bought the same Easter dresses for our daughters.  What are the chances!

Triplets Turn TWO

I can't believe my babies are TWO!  We decided to celebrate their birthday the weekend before (Easter weekend) since Curtis was going to be out of town on their actual birthday.  It ended up being perfect since my sister and brother were going to be in town for Easter anyways.  Curtis' parents made the trip up to Hollister which was great too!  We started out the day by going to the Monterey Bay Aquarium.  It was a little hard because the aquarium isn't really wagon friendly.  So we had to get them out and let them walk around - which is super hard when you're out numbered.  We needed an extra set of hands for sure.  Next time we go we'll be better prepared :)  Later that day we had a little party with pizza, cake and ice cream.  We kept it low key.

 13 kids - 5 adults.  Outnumbered!

 My best friend Jen and her cute son Tyler. 
 My brother Mitch & his family.

 They weren't in the mood for pictures. Except Trey. :)
 I think they'll get their own cake for years to come (or at least their own cupcake).  Who wants to share birthday candles all the time?

 Julie was so funny.  She didn't want to touch the cake and would only eat it if someone fed her. 

K & C plus FOUR!
