7 months

I can't believe it has been 7 months already...well almost. He is 7 months on the 14th and it's crazy how fast time is flying.

He weighs 20 pounds and is in the 82nd percentile

He is 27.75 inches tall and is in the 78th percentile

His head is 17.63 inches and is in the 66th percentile

He has been army scooting for about 3 weeks now and can get up on his knees and crawl a little but then just falls flat on his stomach. I think he is more interested in standing up now.

He can pull himself up to a standing position with the couch cushions. I think he will be like his dad and skip the crawling on all fours stage and go right to walking. Eric was walking by 8 months and I have a feeling Trent is going to follow in his fathers footsteps.

He talks all the time but growls a TON too. 

He is a little shy with strangers at first but will still give smiles.

He LOVES eating solids. Pears, Oatmeal and Cinnamon are his favorite right now. When he doesn't want to eat anymore he growls to let me know he's done.

He LOVES his Dad and will be fussy with me all day sometimes and then the second he sees Eric he gets all happy and giggly.

He has been sleeping in his crib for naps for about 2 months now and it has been awesome!

He doesn't have any teeth yet.

I am so excited to see what the next three months bring! I love my Trenty Trent. (That's what my nephew Kayden called him once and it kind of stuck).

Trick or TRENT!

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. Growing up it was awesome because we never really had to worry about weather because it's California and the weather is amazing all the time so this year I was really grateful that it wasn't butt freezing cold like it normally is. Although I probably should have stayed home because I have a cold but I wasn't going to let that stop me from enjoying Halloween. So even though I was sick I made cupcakes, got dressed up and went Trick or Treating! We headed up to Jessica's house in Daybreak (which by the way is the best place to Trick or Treat because they have a lot of rich people who live there and hand out full size candy bars. SCORE) ate some dinner really fast and headed out. Trent only lasted a little while before he fell asleep on my sister Jamie but it was the funniest thing to go up to the houses and watch his reactions to everything going on. He mostly just stared and would occasionally smile but he didn't cry so I would call his first experience a success. We did get some stank eye from people because they realized basically we were getting the candy for us since he was to young to eat it but hey..I didn't care! I can't wait until next year when Trent is older and he can walk from house to house and understand what is going on a little better. All in all Halloween was a wonderful/exhausting night. 

 Eric and I made these. Jack Skeleton, a Mickey mummy and an eye. First time ever making Halloween cupcakes..hopefully next year they will look better

Trick or Trent! 

 I was batman and Jessica was a BYU Cougar

 Best part of the night: Jaden running from house to house yelling "Buzz Lightyear to the rescue" while shooting his gun.

 Can't believe all my nephews and nieces are getting so big!

After a not so long night of Trick or Treating.

Now it's on to getting everything ready to go to Cali for Thanksgiving. I CAN' WAIT!
