Noah's Happy Two

Our neighbor Noah had his "Happy Two" (as he called it) yesterday. He is so cute, he had such a good time.
Out saving the neighborhood!
Tripp was not liking the baby pool yesterday, it was so strange, he has never been freaked out by water before. This is not good news as Kent and I bought him a big blow up pirate ship pool for his first birthday! Although later that night he played in the bath tub for about 30 minutes and cried when I took him out...I think he may not have liked the baby pool because it was cold, he didn't start crying until I put him in it, it was the first time he had ever been in cold water. VillaSport and FINS both heat their pools.

He did however LOVE sitting in a big boy chair by himself while watching the big kids play. It is so funny to see his two front teeth when he smiles now, it cracks me up every time.

Ma Ma Ma Ma Ma

Guess who went around the house yesterday saying, "Ma ma ma ma ma ma" :)...finally!!!! Woohoo it was music to my ears!

My Day With Grandma and Grandpa

Tripp spent the whole day Saturday with his Grandma and Grandpa and he had a blast! I am in trouble too, Tripp loves to play with their dog, oh no!

Shopping with Grandma Gerri at Target, where he got a new shirt, new shoes, and new toys!!! He is one lucky little boy!

I love this picture, so sweet!

Dinner with Auntie B and Uncle D...

and cousins V & D...thanks for cooking dinner Friday night Bethany, it was delicious! We went over to aunt Bethany and Uncle Dave's house Friday night to say hello, they had just gotten back from their 2 week road trip. We had chicken enchiladas, at the request of Kent (his sister's enchiladas are his favorite), and Tripp ate cat food...handfuls of cat food...he even hid some in his chipmunk cheeks for later.

No More Baby Food...

...Tripp has now refused to eat baby food for the last week, as dada put it, "well yeah we gave him the good stuff, I wouldn't want that anymore either." He now eats just about everything, even bananas, which he previously hated! He has also been on 1/2 formula 1/2 milk for the last two weeks, he hasn't even noticed the difference and we plan to take the 1/2 formula away when this can is empty...hello $25 a week raise! He is also drinking out of a sippy cup for dinner and snack instead of a bottle, this doesn't seem to faze him either, he doesn't care how he gets his milk, as long as he is getting a lot :). He is such a big boy a matter of weeks we will be bottle, formula and baby food onto potty training :)

Tripp learned how to wave bye-bye!!! We have been working on this for a while. Yesterday when leaving daycare the owner said, "bye Tripp" as we were walking out the door and Tripp turned his head around and waved to him, it was so cute!!!!

My New Chair!

Tripp finally got a new big boy car seat for Kent's truck, by the look on Tripp's face I would say dada picked a good one.

Dada taught me the best trick in the world tonight...if you kiss Tripp's neck twice he will laugh, turn his head, and give you a kiss!!!! I love it, not only is it completely adorable but you also get a kiss :). Tripp also learned a couple more things this week, how to drink from a straw and stick his tongue out. It is crazy how they learn new things, 4 days ago Tripp hadn't figured out how to drink from a straw, so I figured we would practice everyday...3 days ago Tripp drank from a straw! How he learned this overnight I will never know. About the tongue sticking out, tonight at dinner Tripp thought it would be fun to continually look at the table behind us and stick his tongue out, luckily they thought it was as funny as we did :)!

Wagon Ride

We went over to our neighbor's house to play and take the boys on a wagon ride tonight. They had a blast riding in the wagon together, but then Noah decided he wanted to pull Tripp around instead of ride. He did a great job and was super careful. Tripp thought it was way cooler when Noah was pulling. I told Noah he could take Tripp on a wagon ride every night :)

Happy First Mother's Day to Me!

I love my boys, they did such a good job!!

Tripp's Best Friend!!!

Tripp met his best friend for the first time today :)...little Carter is the cutest!!! Dana, Todd and Carter came to Houston this weekend for Mother's Day so we went over to meet Carter. Tell mommy and daddy to visit more often Carter, Tripp loved playing with you!
Grandmas...with the wrong babies :)

Hemoglobin Test

We had to take Tripp this past Friday for his hemoglobin test, it was awful. Tripp was laughing and being the perfect angel he is in the waiting room, while we waited for an hour. I don't think he would have been so happy had he known what was about to happen. When we went back, they put Tripp on my lap in a chair and then Kent held one arm while the nurse held the other and stuck him. His face turned bright red and then he starting crying. It was so sad to sit there while he was in pain, but thankfully daddy gave him some puffs when it was over and Tripp was super happy again. I couldn't love this kid more, he is such a trooper!

Two More Teeth

Yay, Tripp has two more teeth, his top front ones! They just cut through, but you can barely see them...I can't wait till they are fully out, then he can eat all kinds of food!

Baby FINS 2

Last week I called FINS to get Tripp signed up for swim lessons for the summer. The owner told me it was mandatory for all children to take Baby FINS 1 if they have never been to FINS swim lessons before. I asked her what the difference was between Baby FINS 1 and 2 and explained that Tripp was really comfortable in the water. She didn't budge on the Baby FINS 1 but told me we could go this past Saturday to try the class out. Kent, Tripp and I went on Saturday around 2. Tripp had a blast, as we knew he would. He did things I didn't even think he would do. The instructor threw a ring on the top stair and started explaining, "now to get him to put his face in the water..." she was cut off by Tripp diving face first under the water to pick the ring up! I was shocked I didn't even think he would just go for it! She also sat him on a raft and said, "now let him just naturally fall face forward and catch him right under the water and bring him up." I was like, "ummm I don't think so" so I let her do it. Tripp loved being under the water and having her catch him! After the 30 minute trail class the instructor said, "I would recommend signing him up for Baby FINS 2, he doesn't need Baby FINS 1." :) The only thing Tripp wasn't good at was waiting to get in the are supposed to hold him on the edge and say, "are you ready...1...2...3" and let them fall to you in the water...Tripp would just jump in immediately, we will have to keep working on that one...
