Troy's new love

I just wanted to post some pics of my big boy Troy. He is a little over 4 months now and is growing like a weed. Yesterday I put him in his highchair for the first time and he was so excited! He must have felt like a big boy in his new chair. I can't say he liked the cereal I was trying to feed him but he didn't fuss about it. Of course he didn't...he is such a happy little guy.

He is also a very active little guy. He has started to get up on his knees and then will straighten his legs and propel himself forward. It almost seems as if his mission right now is to get mobile and I must say he is doing a very good job. He is super strong and can get on his hands and knees pretty easily. I think he realizes he better start moving soon so he can either keep up with Melia or get away from her!! ha ha He is "talking" to me in this pic. He is so vocal. He cracks me up at how he will just "talk" all day.

Melia is such a sweetie with Troy. She loves to give him kisses and hugs. So we had a good week end. I have started training for an Olympic distance triathlon so Dan and I went on a ride together which was fun to get out together again. Dan had 2 races kinda back to back so the kids and I spent the day together on Sunday. We walked to this little park near our house and there was this little boy there, Sampson. Well Melia and Sampson became instant buddies and played together for about 2 hours. Melia played with his daddy too. They had a soccer ball and they were throwing back and forth to each other. It was so sweet. Another little girl approached Sampson and Melia took his hand and stepped in front of him as if to block him from the girl. THey ran around holding hands...he was 4 and loved her!! When it was time to go Melia ran up and gave him a kiss and hugs and the same for his dad, Steve. She runs up to me and says "One more time Mommy" and runs back over and gives Steve another hug and kiss. She did this 2 more times. Anyway it was so fun to see Melia and that little boy playing together like that. It reminded me of how much fun she had with Nash when he was here a few months ago. Oh and she slept from 7 p.m until almost 10 the next morning after that!

Yes here is Troy's new love...his bottle. My big man decided to stop nursing and go with the bottle. I must say I cried about this for awhile but now I am ok with it. He loves his bottle and he gets so excited when he sees me preparing it. He is napping better and it is less stressful now that I am not trying to force him to nurse!! Poor guy! So now instead of trying to "nurse" her kitties Melia now gives them a sippy cup...so cute. I am going to try and blog more pics more often. Ha ha..we'll see.

Are those "Paul Newman" eyes? His eyes have become "bluer!" Precious pictures in the highchair and with his "new love." Melia stories are SO SWEET - love hearing her say "baby" when we are on the phone!

Please keep posting . . . it is a treat to see how they have grown! Hint! Hint!

He is so cute! i want to eat him up!
I'm glad you can start training again...must feel good to get out there and work out! It's always something I start to yearn for right about now when I'm too sore to do anything!

Wow! Troyboy is getting so big so fast. He's so darn cute and has the bluest eyes ever. Would you have ever thought you would have a blonde hair/blue eyed child?? Great job on the nursing and it's great that Troy moved to the bottle so easily. You've seriously got the cutest kids..besides Nash!!

He is getting cute! It's fun to see your kids play well with other kids at the park. It makes up for all of their bad manners at other times. How sad Troy doesn't want to breast feed. :( Now you've got to use some good birth control. :)

Man, he is a looker! He looks so good in blue. Blaze did the same thing at about 5 mos. No more nursing! I too felt guilty and sad.
