Officially Crawling

Tripp went from kind of crawling to officially crawling today. It is amazing what a different a day makes when they are this age. He woke up this morning and decided to crawl all around the living room. After crawling we went outside for a wagon ride to enjoy the perfect weather...Tripp is now passed out on daddy and it is 5:45pm...crawling and playing outside in the sun all day will make a little fellow sleepy.

My Day at the Park

Yesterday after visiting Grandpa in the hospital we went over to Ma and PawPaw's for a little fun at the park. Tripp loves everything about the park, the swings, the slides, and the ducks. I can't wait till the pool opens, I know he will love that as well.

After the park we headed downtown to enjoy dinner with B, V, and D. Here is Violet singing to us in the car :).

We Have a Mobile Monkey!

Tripp isn't technically crawling but he is very mobile now! He crawls forwards for a few steps then he falls but is able to keep going forward by scooting...he can now get across a room forward and backwards :)...although thank goodness he prefers forward now! Daycare said this whole week Tripp has been super happy and loves playing on the floor, since he can now gets toys that were out of his reach before. They also said he plays well with others and loves making "conversation." Tripp loves to be center of attention and loves being around people, that is his first really distinct personality trait we have seen.

On another note he also loves the theme song to Sponge Bob Square Pants, he will stop playing and turn to look at the TV in the mornings when it comes on, it is super cute. He doesn't seem to like the show though, actually he doesn't seem to like TV at all.

Baby Showers and Birthdays

This weekend we went to Burleson for 2 baby showers and a surprise 30th birthday party for BJ. While my sister and BJ were hosting a shower for Justin and Julia I went to Dallas to host a shower for Dana. Both showers went great! After the baby shower Lindsay sent BJ away and with some help from friends and family transformed the party in an hour from a baby shower to a 30th birthday bash.

What do you get someone who is turning 30...

We let Tripp stay up late to watch BJ and Ty play guitar

Does it get any cuter than this...he had a blast!

Bottoms Up!

Valentine's Day

Just realized I forgot to post this... :) wonderful boys went "hunting" (Kent's words, not mine - also why Tripp is in camo, it is the only appropriate thing to hunt in :)) for my Valentine's Day present on Friday and sent me this picture at work. It was an awesome surprise and if you know me you know I can't wait for surprises, I went home at lunch to check it out :)! It was a beautiful new ring to replace my old one I lost at Villa Sport. I got upgraded big time, it was awesome! Thanks boys, I love you!

This morning Kent and I put Tripp in his crib to play while we put some of his old clothes in the attic. When we got down from the attic Tripp was up on his knees holding the bars of his crib, it was the first time he had done this, we were so proud, and couldn't believe how big he was getting....then when we were playing in the living room later Tripp was sitting by the coffee table and grabbed the top of the table and just pulled himself up!!!! We couldn't believe it! He was just standing there all by himself! They learn new skill so fast. He did it several more times, until mama let him hit his head, oops :)


Daycare called me on Wednesday and told me I had to come pick Tripp up because he was sick, do they know how to fake being sick at this age?!?! Because when I got home this is what I saw...
You would never know that he was sick, but in all actuality he really was sick. Poor little guy, he then passed it on to daddy Thursday night who passed it on to mama on Friday...loads of no fun! We were all down and out for a couple days, thanks to Ma for watching Tripp all day yesterday so mama and dada could lay in bed and recover!!! Everyone is feeling much better today!

We Found Our Camera!!!

I haven't posted much lately because Kent and I thought we lost our camera, which I was very upset about because we have great pictures on there from little Dave's baby shower, which I have yet to post because I have been too lazy to upload the pictures...we have had the camera back for a couple of days now :). While our camera was "lost" we missed adorable pictures of Tripp at his first music class at Gymboree and his first trip to the park.

Tripp loved music class, it was so fun, we didn't sign him up though. We plan to sign him up for "Music and Play" class at The Little Gym in March, assuming he likes the trial class. The classes are every Saturday for 17 weeks, less for Tripp since he is missing the whole month of February when the semester started. I can't wait till our trial class, I know he is going to love it.

After music class Kent and I took Tripp to the park where he got to slide and swing for the first time...and ride around the lake in his that we didn't have our camera for this but I can assure you he had a good time! And apparently mama is in trouble because Tripp almost jumped out of his wagon every time he saw a dog...I was really hoping he took after me on this one and didn't like dogs...doesn't look like that is going to be the case!!
