As my reputation for keeping up with this blog holds even more true, it has been yet again three months since I have touched this thing! I have been sucked into the world of Facebook and seem to have no time for anything else "posting" related...
It's almost the end of August, it's just so hard to believe! My baby turned six months old this month and it is just flying by. He is growing and growing and growing and eating and eating and eating! He is in the 90% + in every measurement that they take at the doctor's office!
He has turned into such a great and happy, happy baby! If I could get him to sleep through the night, I would have NO complaints!
June was another busy month, as they all seem to be. Rob's Mom and Dad came to Colorado to visit, Chris and Blair got married for the first time, and the I have officially lost my mind addition of "Peanut the Puppy" to our already big enough family!
It turned out to be a beautiful day even though we were slated for a good rain storm! It couldn't have been better! Trevor ended up walking Blair down to Chris and it was the most precious thing I have ever seen...
Onto Pool Day at Debbie's! My girlfriend Dawn's Mom has a summer pool party ritual that we have been invited to this year. Once a month she invites all her girlfriends, and Dawn has invited us all to spend the day in Larkspur at their beautiful home! Trevor loves going to Debbie's to play with the dogs and the train. With all the amazing things at her place, he wants the puppies and the train set she has stuck in a corner of the video arcade. That's my baby - green beans over cookies... Just gotta shake your head a little!
This is the face of a little boy that is NOT happy that his Grandma just stole a bite of his ice cream sundae! We went back to Old Chicago for dinner with Bob and Virginia and Trevor had to have some ice cream as usual... Virginia snuck a little bite of his ice cream and he was not havin it!
Ahhh - and now Peanut the Puppy! After spending time at Debbie's and seeing just how much this little boy loves playing with dogs, Rob and I had a few serious conversations about getting another dog... to make 4, yes 4! Our other three puppies are 6, 9 and at least 9 years old. The last thing they want to do is be chased around by some crazy pants 3 year old and trying to explain that to him just doesnt compute. So, Mom and I packed up Trevor and the baby after looking for a newf puppy and finding a posting in the Denver Post for half black lab, half golden retriever puppies and let Trevor pick out his new best friend. We played the name game on the way home after he picked him out and Trevor liked Pancake, and we progressed to Peanut. For the first day he called him "New Puppy" and finally got used to calling him Peanut.
They are the best of friends. They give each other a full run for their money for sure. Trevor has been knocked down, scratched, bit, tackled to the ground and just about anything else puppy related and still loves him through it all! The first few nights we baby gated the puppy in our bathroom and it was hell. But the part that made it worth while was to see Trevor asleep on the floor next to the baby gate with his hand slid under the gate to pet his puppy while they slept. Peanut then turned into the "sleep under the deck dog". He would go out to go potty and not been seen or heard from again until around 3 am! Forget it! At least he was on the same schedule as the baby!

Another pool day at Debbie's! We have such a good time! It wears me out chasing after Trevor all day but we love it... (I need a stroller to push these kids through this house - it's a mile long end to end on each floor!)
