Tripp Tries to Feed Himself Now...

...and this is what happens...
Way too cute, but I think we may have to start feeding him two jars of baby food so he actually gets at least 1/2 of one. On another note, I have never seen a kid like green beans as much as this one does.

Guess Who Met Santa!

Tripp seemed to like Santa but we couldn't get him to smile, there was way too much going on around him, he did however stare at Santa for a good minute trying to figure him was pretty funny. Uh, dad, a little help here....

Tripp's first girlfriend....

Merry Christmas!

Christmas with Ma & Paw Paw

After Christmas at Grandma and Grandpa's house Tripp got to go to Ma and Paw Paw's and have another early Christmas - he is one lucky little boy!! On top of the gifts from the Grandparents this weekend Tripp also got gifts from his Great Grandmother AND - oh yeah - lets not forget - he still has Christmas morning and all the way too many gifts he will get then...he is milking his adorableness for all its worth :)
This was his second time to open a gift, he hasn't learned yet that getting to eat the paper was not the gift....

Christmas with Grandma and Grandpa

Since we are going to Burleson this year for Christmas Tripp got to have a Saturday full of opening early gifts from Grandparents. He has this unwrapping presents thing down pat....thanks for all my new toys Grandma and Grandpa!! Woah, I thought the unwrapping thing was cool, but there was something even better underneath!

Tripp got upgraded yesterday to the duck mask, love it, hate that he has to have breating treatments. We also found out he is now 20 pounds and 28 inched long....we might have to stop watering him...he grows so fast!

Out with the old, in with the new...

Tripp will be starting a new daycare on December 21st and I couldn't be more excited! I was relatively happy with the daycare he is at now but little things really started to bother me, little by little I was become more unhappy with the place. I talked to Kent this morning and decided to check out another daycare...boy am I glad I did...we didn't know what we were missing! He will be going to Kids R Kids now, here are a few highlights of things they have to offer that Tripp's current daycare did not:

1. Big rooms with lots of natural light
2. At least one certified teacher in each room
3. Music playing in the room all day everyday
4. A "music man" (guy with a guitar) that comes once every two weeks
5. A stroller that sits 6 children, they take them for a walk (6 at a time obviously) when the weather is nice
6. They read books to the kids everyday (simply I know, but our current daycare was not!)
7. Cameras that Kent and I can view on the Internet at anytime
8. A playground that is right outside Tripp's room, when the big kids aren't out there and it is nice they take them out to get fresh air
9. A full time chef

I couldn't love this place more...the only reason I didn't go get Tripp this morning and take him there was because we paid up front through next week at his current he will be staying until then :)

Moody Gardens

This weekend we went to Moody Garden's Festival of Lights, it lived up to the hype, we had a great time. There was a mile long trail of Christmas lights, add that on top of the fact that we were outside and it made for a perfect evening for Tripp. We definitely want to go again next year, the only thing we would do differently is stay at a hotel down there instead of driving home. We also put up our Christmas decorations this Saturday. It worked out perfectly, Tripp fell asleep and didn't wake up till we were done :).
We headed downtown to meet up with Aunt Bethany, Uncle Dave and Violet around 4pm, we wanted to get down to Galveston early so we could have dinner and exchange Christmas presents. Violet was racing to and from the front door when we got to their house and Tripp thought it was hilarious! Ever time she came back from the door she gave Tripp a hug, it was too cute!
At dinner Violet and Tripp got to open their Christmas gifts, here is Violet hugging her charm bracelet, I think that means she likes it :)

These presents from Aunt Bethany and Uncle Dave were his first Christmas gifts to ever unwrap, in fact they were his first gifts to ever actually unwrap. (He has received a few other Christmas gifts already but none were wrapped)

The Gould's, I think Violet was a little distracted by the lights in this one.

Breathing Treatments

Poor little baby boy went to the doctor yesterday for his nasty cough and we found out he has to be on breathing treatments :(. They are no fun but seem to be working wonders for him. He goes back on Friday for a check up, I am guessing he will be good as new by then :). We also found out our chunky monkey is a little less chunky now a days, he weighed 19 pounds which is only the 80th percentile, down from his previous 100th percentile.
