Treyton Lee--Month 8

The past eight months have definitely changed our lives forever.  We can't quite imagine our lives before T entered our world and we wouldn't change it for anything.  We thank God every day for choosing us to be his parents!  He sure is one happy little boy who is really starting to show us his attitude.  I swear he got it from his dad!

I struggled a bit to just pick one or two....











Likes
-Simply put: Moving constantly (walking, jumping, attempting to crawl, rolling, etc.)
-Prefers walking over anything
-Playing in water
-Music
-Being down in the shop
-Mom or Dad over anyone else
-Kids
-Sitting and playing

Dislikes
-HATES getting his nose wiped or sucked out
-Being told "no" by Dad
-Other kids crying in the Church nursery (We've had to get him in the middle of service because he gets scared of the other kids crying.)
-Laying on his back with no one around

Eating
-5 bottles or nursing sessions a day
-Food 3 times a day
-Prefers table food over baby food and sometimes refuses baby food
-Has eaten steak, mac n' cheese, pizza, cheese, sweet potatoes, broccoli,, oatmeal, bread sticks, and yogurt.  I'm sure there are more that I am forgetting.

Sleeping
-Three 45-hour long naps!  Stinker doesn't like to miss out on anything.

-Rolls all over his crib and often wakes himself up by hitting his head on the side.
-Wakes up super slow like his dad

Clothes & Diapers

-6-9 month clothes
-Size 3 diapers

Odds & Ends
-Saying "dada" (over and over allll day long)
-Sitting completely on own
-Super close to crawling and has done it a couple of times
-Goes from sitting, to all 4s, to belly, and back to sitting
-Finally rolled over from his back to his belly
-Can get to where he wants to but takes him a while
-Pulls himself up on our cough
-Runs around the shop in his walker
-Got his first tooth (bottom left)

We flew to San Diego, California on March 17th for Aubrey and Michael's wedding.  The weather was beautiful and Treyton did great on all four of our flights.  He certainly made friends with the flight attendants and the people around us.  While he didn't cry, he certainly jabbered loudly several times.  I think we avoided making the people around us mad at least.  We may be a little biased but he made a pretty cute ring bearer.  

There was no shortage of spoiling on Easter!

Unfortunately, Treyton and I were playing in the shop with Simbah one evening when he seized up and passed away.  We will forever miss him and I am super glad that I have some pictures of the two together.  Simbah couldn't contain his excitement when Treyton came to play. 

Tearing up paper is one of his strongest skill sets currently!


His facial expressions kill me!


At the airport in Des Moines and ready to head to San Diego.

Treyton's first flight!

The time change messed us up a bit so we got to hang out in the lobby of our hotel from 4:30 to about 6:00 every morning. :-)  We knew the front desk lady pretty well by the time we left.

It was too bright but Treyton's first time at the beach and seeing the ocean.  It was a dog friendly beach so he really just watched the dogs playing fetch.






So happy to get off of his back!

Sunday naps are my favorite!

Dad got to experience a massive blowout that got everything in sight dirty!



Just practicing those basketball skills for Grandpa Dennis

The Easter Bunny came!



3 ring circus!


Loved every minute of getting to sit like a big boy at Target.  So much so that he wouldn't even look at me for a picture.

When you don't have pants at Nate and Kerstin's, you get to wear your cousin Elin's leggings. :-)

After losing Simbah, I couldn't leave Rajah down in the shop by herself.  It took her approximately half of a meal time to figure out where she should be.

Got switched over to a big boy carseat and loves every minute of being able to see out the window.

Dancing to music at with Grandma Linda


He finally figured out how to make this thing moved and we haven't stopped him since.

Dad and Uncle Nate were cleaning up the yard so we took some wagon rides.

Pulled himself up there on his own.  I'm seeing lots of goose eggs in our future.

Doesn't quite know what to do once he gets here.  Like our new carpet?!

Misworded Snapchat....  But this couldn't have been comfortable.

Poor Rajah is going to take a beating.

A monster and his sidekick!

I'm 8 months old and love to snuggle on Sunday mornings before church in Mom and Dad's bed.
