All smiles!
Waiting at the airport.
All the Trask cousins, together again!
Happy 4th of July!
Meeting Grandma "G" for the 1st time!
At the welcome home party for the Trask's!

This month has passed in a blur!  We prepared for the Trask's homecoming so much that summer didn't really begin until they returned home on the 4th of July.  Troy has loved being spoiled by more grandparents around & often wonders where everyone is if mom is the only one home with him.  He is such a big boy now!  He sits up totally on his own & moves & rolls around all over the place.  He lunges for things & tries to crawl over your legs if you're playing with him, he is a mover no doubt about it!!  He doesn't really stay up on his knees & hands at the same time prepping for crawling, but he gets where he's going any other way he can.  When he can crawl . . . watch out!!  Luckily the little boy has a tough head & as he's exploring his range of motion & falling forward & backward, he doesn't cry as he bangs his head on whatever is nearby, he's whined maybe twice.  He eats his baby food & just seems to want more & more as he eats it faster everyday.  His major breakthrough as of Monday 7-21 is his first tooth breaking through, one of the bottom front of course, so the joys & pains of teething have officially begun.  He is a lovable, fun boy who loves attention, walks, singing & smiles.  I still can't believe we were so blessed to have little Troy join our family, what a miracle!

I miss him so much! He is so precious. Can you send me the pictures of the Grandkids? I don't have any. And the picture of Mark in his 4th of July shirt made me laugh out loud!
