I've been showing her the ropes . . .

 So, I think you all know by now, that "I do all my own stunts", or at least that's what my shirt says. Here's a little video of me, displaying some of my new tricks . . .

Okay, enough about me - I told you I'd post some more pics of the newbie -





Peek-a-boo!

I'm think she's pretty cool, as far as little sister's go. :)

 The big difference is, I just don't get as much shut-eye as I used to, what with all the diaper changing and feeding all the time.


In other news - we just went to the NICU reunion to see my old friends from the hospital - no not the horse, silly, the doctor's and nurses and babies I hung with for 80 days after I was born.

Remember my first girlfriend, Emily! Or "Em" as we used to call her. Well, she's still a cutie pie.  But I got no love from her. I did get a hug from Sophie though - I think she liked how I played hard to get. 


I also got to ride in a real firetruck!!  SO FUN!

 But I spent most of the day in the jump house!

It was good to see everyone and show off my Little Sister, since I'm the BIG one now. Reminded me just how amazing it is to be here and be healthy.

Excited for my Lil' Sis to arrive . . .

So mom's been on bed rest for 8 weeks, and now we are less than three weeks from baby Laurel's delivery day (8.26.10). The doc said mom could do more now - Hooray! And we are all getting so excited to meet Laurel. So we decided to take some fun pictures while mom was on bed rest to give to Laurel when she arrives . . . Dear Laurel,
I can't wait to give you a big kiss and sing to you the "Happy Birthday" song (I've been practicing) when you are born. I want to be a good Big Brother to you - I'll always protect you and love you, even though I'll have to toughen you up too (a big bro requirement). Can't wait to show you how to dance and do somersaults! We are going to have so much fun!
Love,
Your Big Bro Trevor

Learning to share . . .

So, I'm already having to share my mom with my Little Sister . . . The doctor decided it was best to put my mom on bed rest three weeks ago. So, mommy's laying down at a 45 degree angle or less to keep my little sister from showing up early, like I did. But the good news is that while she's been laying low, we've had lots of family and friends over to take my mind off it. Here's me hangin with my friends Luke and Lane:
Mom's so thankful for all the help. Daddy's been "Super Daddy" these days too, but we are all making it work and are thankful that Laurel is still inside mommy's belly, safe and sound. Mommy is 31 weeks tomorrow, so we still have a ways to go. Please keep us in your prayers.
Hugs and Kisses! (this is my new favorite thing to say). BTW, I am talking non-stop, and counting to 19 and learning my colors. And now since I'm such a big boy, my mom and dad gave me a big boy bed! It is awesome, with cool monkey sheets and a step to get into it. Sometimes my parents find me in the living room on the couch in the middle of the night, or quietly staring at them while they are sleeping. I guess that kind of freaks them out, but I sure like the new freedom!

I also wanted to share some special wedding wishes to my favorite new Bride and Groom - Aunt Hollie and Uncle Timmy. I love you guys! (Click Play button below)

And to wrap it up, I'm still perfecting my dance routines (click Play button below):

I'm going to have a Little SISTER!!! :)

Sorry, it took so long to tell you the news, but my parents have been hogging the computer. :)
Anyways, here is how my parents found out . . .

They went to their favorite special occasion dinner spot on the San Diego Bay (Island Prime) and when they arrived gave a sealed envelope with the results of the sonogram to the waiter.

After a delicious meal, the excitement was mounting . . . it was with dessert that they were to find out if I was going to have a little brother or sister.

The waiter brought out the dessert with a pink umbrella and pink candle that said congratulations in chocolate . . . and then handed us the card below as he said, "You are having a GIRL!" My mom asked him to say it several more times, because she wasn't sure she was hearing him correctly - and as soon as it sunk in, the tears started flowing . . .
They read the card and it was confirmed. My mom yelled out, "I really wanted a girl!" I guess it just hit her at that moment, how much a girl would mean to her. Dad welled up with tears too . . . this little girl is going to melt his heart. Good thing they have me around to keep them grounded!
Here they are together after finding out the news.
Lastly, here's a recent picture of me from Easter, with my buddy Austin.

By the way . . . more big news . . . her name is going to be Laurel Rose. :)
(still working on a middle name)

And through many prayers this pregnancy is going very well and Laurel is growing and doing great! Mom is now 22 weeks pregnant and still doing workouts with Dad. God is good.
