Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas!

Well it's official people...Ethan got a job in Las Vegas! We couldn't be more excited that 1. He has a job in this economy and 2. We will be by family! I never thought I would be the type that insisted on living by family but once we had our little munchkin I realized how helpful it would be to have family around to help out. I think it really does take a village to raise a child and I have enough family in Vegas to constitute a village:) It will also be really nice to be closer to Ethan's family because I really want Trey to be close to both sides of his family. He is a lucky boy with lots of amazing Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, and Grandparents. Now the countdown begins...8 months till graduation and then we move. Now onto the good stuff. Trey is 9 1/2 months old and into everything of course. He crawls surprisingly fast, can stand on anything, will eat anything, and still smiles and laughs all the time. Some of his favorite things are playing peek a boo with me or the dogs, helping mommy put the dishes in the dishwasher, and playing fetch with himself (he literally throws a ball across the room, crawls to it, picks it up and throws it to the other side of the room). He also loves standing on the side of the bathtub and pushing my shampoo and conditioner into the tub. He is definitely a momma's boy and wants me in his line of sight at all times. He loves playing with his daddy, especially when daddy gets on all fours and chases him around the house. He also loves playing with our dog Dexter. Trey will take Dexter's bone out of his mouth and then put it back in over and over. The dogs are quite patient with him luckily. Lately he is cheesing it up for the camera which you would think would mean I would get a lot of cute smiling pics but instead I get a baby with his head thrown back and a giant open mouth goofy smile. Oh well he is still cute as can be. Here are some pics:

Cheesing it up! I'm just so funny mom!

What are you talking about mom? Doing the dishes is so much fun!

Who says I can't fit into that box?

Notice the hand holding onto the curtain...that would be Trey playing peekaboo with the pups!

Helping mom celebrate her birthday - Mommy couldn't have picked better company :)

Yes he really is this cute.

Trey is so cute. I love that he laughs and smiles so much, that pic of him with his head thrown back is hilarious. Congrats to Ethan on his new job! I'm sure you guys are so excited, and it will be nice to (maybe?) see you guys more often. :)
