Trent 6 months old

Trent is now 6 months old!! Today he has been wearing his helmet for a week and it seems to be going well. He's had a few rashes on his scalp where his skin is adjusting and he's getting used to wearing it 23 hours a day. One thing Trent is lacking is his desire to roll over. I've been giving him lots of tummy/floor time lately and he seems perfectly content to just play with his toys or lay with his head to one side and fall asleep! We've tried showing him what to do and "help" him out. He's just not interested! He IS beginning to sit up on his own more and gets around the kitchen in his walker. It's these big smiles that always brighten our day!!
Tummy time!

Trent LOVES his siblings and is always belly laughing at their silliness
We have had a busy week as we're getting ready to leave for vacation tomorrow. It just so happens that we have planned a trip with my parents and brother to Salt Lake City months ago.. now, it is convenient that we are going tomorrow because Trent has a helmet appt. in the afternoon. We will be camping with my family at the Lagoon campground until Tuesday and, doing things throughout the day: 1 1/2 days at the Lagoon amusement park, zoo, water park etc.
This last week has been spent getting things ready to go.... cleaning the camper, laundry, packing, food preparation, doctor's appts, working in the garden and Tys has an ear infection that has made him slightly grumpy (slightly is putting it nicely!) He is now on antibiotics and is much happier today.
