We had a great week last week, minus the yucky first shots, and an even better weekend! We love the weekends mostly because carl is home and we get to spend time as a family! Carl will even take the first night feeding which is usually around 12 or 1 am and I get to sleep for a couple extra hours...which by the weekend I need!
Tripp had his first trip to the mall this weekend. Mom and I took him shopping with us at the woodlands mall. He did really well and even decided to take a big nasty poop while we were checking out in a busy store! It didn't bother him at all, he just got all smiley and laughed a lot! Needless to say it was a pleasant experience and it was helpful to have my mom there who was able to help while I tried on some things.
Tripp is now officially in size 3 month clothing. I even packed up all his newborn clothing this weekend...so sad! Can't believe how big this little guy is getting, he never misses a meal;) He's a little chunker but not compared to how his daddy was. We were comparing stats the other day and Carl weighed 12.4 lbs at his 1 month check-up while tripp weighed 12.4 lbs at his 2 month check-up! So funny! We'll see if tripp catches up to his daddy;)
Here are some fun facts about our little man:
- still eating 5 ounces, sometimes 6 at each feeding
- loves to fan out his toes and flex his feet while eating
- does most of his "dirty work" (aka: poop diapers) while eating!
- grunts really loud and grasps on to things esp his clothes or fingers while doing his "dirty work"...really funny!
- likes to listen to music with daddy
- laughs in his sleep...so precious
- pretty serious, like his dad most of the time...mommy is gonna work on this!
- started kicking objects
- loves tummy time!
- loves bath time!
- "talking" a lot more!
We are enjoying every minute with our precious butter bean! I can't imagine having to be away from him for longer than a couple of hours. I am so thankful to be able to spend everyday with him. Next weekend is Tripp's dedication to the church. We are so excited and so blessed to have such a precious and healthy baby! It will also be my very first mother's day, I can't even imagine my life without my darling baby boy! Motherhood is quite an adventure but there are no words to express exactly what it feels like to be a mommy or how it is possible to love someone so much! I am blessed! Not to mention I have a wonderful husband and tripp has an awesome daddy!
I have posted some recent pictures of our big guy....enjoy!
