Trey Seven Months Old

Clothes - 12 month onesies, 18 month jammies, 12-18 month clothes
Diapers - Size 4

Trey Man is still as happy as ever.  He sleeps 9pm-9am.  I was going to start putting him to bed at 8pm and hope he'd go 8pm-8am, but I love having two hours of one on one time each night with him (since the triplets go to bed at 7pm).  His schedule just kind of works right now, so I'm not changing anything yet.  I no longer swaddle him.  He'd break out of his swaddle and roll on to his belly after an hour and sleep all night, so I just let him.  He prefers his tummy now - which is crazy because he used to HATE it.  At naps and bedtime I just lay him on his tummy, put a light blanket over him, and he falls to sleep on his own.  Trey loves to suck on his blanket while he sleeps.  When I get him out of his crib his blanket is all wet.  It's so funny.  It's like a little comfort thing now.  When he starts to get tired or fussy I'll hand him his blanket and he'll calm down and just sit and suck on it.   

Trey is so strong!  He loves his exersacuer, johnny jumper, bumbo, and bouncy seat.  I just kind of rotate him through each of those throughout the day.  He loves to sit in his bumbo and watch me do dishes or clean up the kitchen.  He reaches for anything and everything around him and brings it right to his mouth.  He rolls around to get to what he wants.  He has his two bottom teeth (bottom R came in Jan 23) and one coming in on the top.  His hair is starting to get a little wavy.  If I put a little lotion in it - it will curl a little more.  Trey smiles ALL. DAY. LONG.  I was trying to get a serious picture of him, but he kept flashing his cute little smile at me.  He arches his back and laughs.  He does this belly laugh that is to die for!  We all love it.  Cruz and Kash are learning to "be soft" and will pet Trey's head and give him kisses.  They still occasionally smack him, but not nearly as often.  

Trey is still great in the car - opposite of the triplets.  We haven't really gone anywhere far lately, but he's great on the short trips we make all day.  The car calms him down.  He gets a little fussy at church - since we skip his morning nap and it runs into his afternoon nap.  He's so used to falling asleep in his crib that he has a hard time falling asleep on me since there are all these distractions around.  So occasionally I'll put him in his carseat and drive around during Sunday school and he'll fall right to sleep.  Probably not the best way to spend the second hour of church, but it works.  Trey still LOVES bath time and has found a new love for swings.  We have the cutest little park right by our house that we visit almost daily.  Oh man...we just love this little (big) guy!
