Tripp has been a little fussy since he woke up but after a nice bottle, burp and diaper change he is sleeping soundly once again:) Well here are the much awaited stats for tripp at 2 months:
He is now weighing in at 12 lbs. 4 oz. (almost a 5 lb weight gain from the 1 monther!) He is in the 76th percentile for weight and in the 25th percentile for height (no shocker there since carl and I aren't very tall). So our little monkey is obviously eating pretty well and packing on the LB's. We are so happy to have a clean bill of health for our little guy! He will have to go back next week for an oral vaccination...I can handle that one on my own;) Then next appointment will not be until 4 months unless of course we have to go in before for something else.
I just wanted to post a little update on the 2 monther! Tripp will officially be 2 months old on the 4th so I will post some pictures of our big guy next week! Hope everyone has a great rest of the week...I know we will now that the dreaded first shots are behind us!

Tripp and I have been really busy lately! We have been trying to get out a few times a week to run errands, meet friends for lunch or just go for drives. Tripp loves being in the car and so far has been really good when we are out! We had lunch with michelle last week and tripp woke up when we got to the restaurant, needless to say I was really nervous but he was so good! He even fell back asleep in his carrier after looking around for a while. We even took our first tripp to yaya's office last week. Tripp got to see yaya, papa, and some of my uncles too! He did get a little fussy so we had to leave a little earlier than expected. This past weekend was a little rough. Tripp has been having some issues with gas and was really unhappy! Saturday morning I left tripp with daddy while I went to the gym. When I got back Tripp was half naked in his bouncer passed out! you can see the picture below:) Yaya watched tripp on saturday night while carl and I went and had dinner, it was nice to get out! Sunday Carl and I took tripp to run some errands and then went over to lance and michelle's new house so carl could help lance with some "handyman" stuff:) Tripp and I sat on the porch swing outside on their beautiful porch and tripp of course loved it so much that he relxed and fell asleep! Sunday night we went over to coach and grammy's for coac's birthday! Tripp decided to scream most of the time, but we did manage to get a few good pictures and have a good visit with some of carl's family.
This week we have tripp's two month check up where he has to get the dreaded first shots! Carl is of course coming wih us because mommy will have to be in the waiting room until the torture is over and I can run in and comfort my little guy! I'm a whimp I know...but can you blame me?! ;)
Below are some pictures from the past week! Hope you enjoy!
intrigued with coach...hmm, sounds just like daddy!
mommy left daddy at home and this is what I came home to! where are his clothes?! :)
Tripp loves his yaya!

When this little guy gets hungry he starts to eat his monkeys!
As you can tell our little boy has been eating very well! We can't wait to see how much he weighs now! Thanks for checking in...we will update again soon with all the 2-monther stats and just how tough our little guy is after his shots! ;) Hope everyone has a blessed week!

Falling asleep on my changing table!
Today hasn't been as eventful as the past few days! My sweet grandma came over to watch tripp while I ran a few errands. It was nice getting out by myself. Right now Tripp is snoozing in his bouncer seat while I am blogging! He will be waking up soon and be ready to eat before our afternoon walk! Just wanted to give a quick update. Hope everyone is having a great week! Thanks for checking in, we will update again soon!

Daddy gave me a mohawk!
Carl and I also also took tripp to get his first pictures made this weekend. He did ok but decided to get fussy half way through the shoot! We did manage to get some pretty cute pictures made though! Saturday night my mom watched tripp for us while carl and I went out to dinner all by ourselves! It was nice to get out for a bit, but we did miss our little man:) Sunday Tripp and I gave daddy a little break and went shopping and to lunch with yaya. We rounded out the weekend with dinner at carl's parents where tripp got to spend some time with cousin kate!

Well Tripp is officially 5 weeks old! He has been changing so much. His little face continues to get chubbier and oh so cute! Here are some of the things tripp is up to these days:
-he loves dancing with his mommy
-he loves when daddy holds him and loves to look up at daddy
-he especially loves his morning baths
-he eats 4 ounces of formula AFTER breastfeeding!
-he likes to lay on his changing table...and even falls asleep sometimes!
-he loves his vibrating bouncer...only thing that calms him when he is fussy and has gas!
-he loves to be outside!
-he likes to lay in his crib after eating and having a bath and listen to his george strait lullabys
-he enjoys car rides!
-he has quite a little temper (hmm...daddy's boy?!)
-he loves to keep his little legs right up against his body like a little frog!
-he likes to stretch his frog legs out when eating
Those are just a few things that Tripp is lovin' these days. He has been sleeping a little better now-a-days since he has been drinking more formula. Mommy now gets about 3-31/2 hours of sleep at a time! Tripp is also pooping on his own again...(TMI...i know, but this is a huge accomplishment and relief since he was having so much trouble!) Tripp even pooped all over himself and daddy the other night! It was hysterical I though Carl might throw up!
Well we hope everyone is having a great week and has an even better weekend! Enjoy the beautiful weather...we definitely will!
