Still up?!

Its 12:08AM and I am still up. What am I thinking?! I will probably regret it tomorrow when Julianna comes in at 7am, telling me to wake up, even though Trenton will be sound asleep till 8 or so.
We've been busy off and on this month. On July 3rd we went up to Ohio to visit my family. It was nice to see everyone that I could on our short visit. We had to split the driving up though and travel halfway and get a hotel. Trenton does not like being in the car seat for very long. Plus since he is still nursing, he eats almost every 2 1/2 to 3 hours. So it was a bit tiresome but a great visit with family. The one day we had all the grandkids at my Dad's house. It was a bit crazy, but thank God it was a nice day and all the kids played outside for the most part. That same day Amber (my SIL) said she would watch our 3 kids while Matt and I had a dinner date. It was great and she is a trooper for putting up with my 3 while she has 2 monkeys of her own. lol Next time we will have to return the favor!
Trenton is now fully rolling over from front to back. He is trying his hardest to roll back over to his belly because he is a belly sleeper and he can't stand to sleep on his back. PLUS he can't get his thumb in his mouth if he is on his back. That thumb keeps him asleep for longer periods of time.
I am thinking of starting Trenton on some solids. I am not sure when I started the other two, but he seems ready. He is always grabbing my fork or spoon at the table and watches everyone eat at dinner. I have tried giving him the Gerber oatmeal, but he doesn't seem to like it. I think we will stick to the Rice cereal instead. I bought a ton of frozen veggies and a few frozen fruits. I plan on making our own baby food like I did with Julianna. It is SOOOO inexpensive than to buy all the jars. I bought a bag of peas for $.94. That bag will make at least 2 1/2 ice cube trays full of pea puree. So that is at least 10 jars. But I need to buy this:
A simple Food Mill and chops and purees tons of different foods.
Trenton got his 4 month shots last Friday. He weighs in at 18 lbs 1 oz and is 26 inches long. He is such a chunk!
