Rub a dub the three amigos in the tub.
My family gets together for american idol
nights. I usually take care of the kiddos so
everyone can actually hear idol. Last week
I gave them all a bath, yes I am very brave!!
They are so much fun.
This is Trev beating up the octopus
balloon that Cruz loved so much.

Trev loves to take naps with mommy
(or maybe mommy likes to naps with

One of the nights Tryston spend the night
with us the boys took a shower. This is Trev's
first time to take a shower by himself. We'll
sorta by himself, I of course still washed them
up and got them out but they thought it was cool
to play in there by themselves. He is getting so
big way too fast.

Silly boy!!


These pics were taken when Cruzy was
laughing at Trev beating up the octopus
balloon. The best part is we got it on video.

Loves to chew on our toys.

This is where Cruzy sleeps during the night.
His bassinet is right up next to my bed. He
looks so cozy!!

But he also likes to sleep in mommy and daddy's
bed too!!
What a big boy!!

He usually sits in his exersaucer in the
bathroom while mommy gets ready. I did
the same thing with Trev. Trev still loves
to watch me get ready which I think is so

Say cheese

How many times does it take to get the
"perfect picture". Say cheese, look at the
camera, turn around, don't hit, lick,poke
your brother,sit still, smile pretty.......
you know how it goes. Getting one child
to cooperate is hard enough but the more
you add the harder it becomes. But, when
I look back the "imperfect pictures" are my

5 months old

WOW! I can't believe my BABY is 5 months
old. I feel like I brought him home yesterday.
He is such a joy and I fall more in LOVE with
him everyday. He steals my heart again
every morning when I wake up to him next
to me. I love you Cruzy!!

Last month some new things Cruz has
accomplished are:

He can sit in his exersaucer and play. He likes all the
toys that are attached.

He loves to pull hair and grab anything that you are
wearing and try to put it in his mouth. Not the best
time for me to be growing my hair out.

He loves to hear himself talk and sing (I call it singing)
he just jabbers and jabbers. He tries so hard to say words.

He has starting belly laughing at Trevor. The first time
was when Trev was running and jumping on bubble wrap
trying to pop it. Cruz laughed so hard at him. The second
time was on valentines day. Trev was beating up the
octopus balloon with his ninja sword. Every time Trev
hit the balloon, he belly laughed. It was great!

He still sleeps pretty well through the night. We feed him
a bottle at 10-11 and he sleeps until 7 or so. Always wakes
up with a smile every day.

Rolls over really good from belly to back but not back to belly.

Started eating cereal and prunes. He loves to eat his food and
does very good with a spoon. He caught on very early to that

He started the fake cough. He really knows how to work me now.
He cries when he is not being held and as I am walking toward him
to pick him up, he starts smiling and talking to me. I know he is
thinking ha ha mom, your such a sucker. This works every time.

Overall, your still very laid back, happy, you smile with your
whole face (especially your eyes) love your family, you
love to try and do new things. I can't wait to see what
new things you do this month Cruzy.
Your so much fun!!

My funny valentines

Valentines day was amazing this year. For one
I had three valentines. I felt like one of the
luckiest girls in the world. I know, try
not to be jealous girls. It was soo sweet to
be with all my boys on Valentines day. We
went out for lunch at Jason's deli (my
valentines knew it's my favorite place
to go for lunch) John had a massage, then
I had one right after which is why my hair
looks so cool in our pictures. We hung out,
watched a movie, and talked about how
much we love our little valentines. I cooked
chicken parmesan for dinner while we
listened to Bon Appe'tit, a cd of cafe
classics. It felt like we were in Italy at
some little cafe. We loved it!
Thanks for the best valentines day boys!!
The boys gifts

Trevor loved his little froggie card!
Daddy read to T.

Trev is really into spiderman and boxers
so we found him some spiderman boxers.
He absolutely loves them. I have to wash
them a couple times a week so he can
wear them over and over and over again.
Diggin in!

We bought our little valentines
(who needs another toy like he
needs a hole in the head) a ninja
Gi joe costume. Very cool!!

and where the wild things are.
I can't believe I hadn't already
bought for him. We read every
night before bed and this is
such a classic. Glad it's in the
times infinity and beyond!!
Love you Trev!!
My sweet baby's first valentines. He is
the cutest thing. I am so blessed!!
He had a great day and loves his gifts!
He tried to eat his card
and his tigger. He got so excited when
he saw his tigger. He talked and talked
to him.
He got a book called baby,I love you.
Very sweet book.

He was pretty good at ripping the
paper out of the bag. He is getting
too big.

Cruz is 4 months old and a 4 month
olds favorite thing to do is chew chew
chew. So we bought our baby valentine
some toys that light up and are fun to
look at but he can drool on too. They
are a big hit. Right to the mouth they go.

love you baby cakes!!
