look at me mom!
I panicked at first and then couldn't help but laugh and snap a quick photo! Lessons learned:
1. tripp needs to be strapped in now
2. ALWAYS keep my camera handy! :)
I just couldn't believe that he figured out how to weasel his way out of his chair! What will he do next?! My sister (the mother of 2 boys) tells me to get prepared! I don't think carl and I will ever have a dull moment again! Here are a few more pictures of my mischievous little man.
I will feed myself mommy!

So Tripp and I have been busy shaking our peanuts! haha. There is an episode of mickey mouse clubhouse where they sing a song about "shaking your peanut". So needless to say mommy has been singing that song and we shake our peanuts (our bums;)) Tripp has been a very busy little boy! He has become my little running buddy every morning. Since he has decided to start waking up at the crack of dawn, I've started to take advantage of that and getting my run in since it is still cool outside at the time.
Tripp has also found something new he likes to chew on...his toes! He can finally put them in his mouth...boy has he been trying to do this for some time now. It's hysterical! He also LOVES to jump around in his jumper! We put him in there and he just laughs and laughs. It's too cute! He is also just about sitting up on his own! He will sit for about a minute then slowly start to fall to the side. He is trying so hard! So we know it will be no time at all and our big boy will be sitting up! I can't believe how much he is growing and changing. It really seems like just yesterday he was a tiny little infant. Time really does fly by. I am so thankful I get to stay home with him and be with him everyday....I don't want to miss a minute!!
Carl, Tripp and I had a very relaxing weekend. We spent the whole weekend together hanging out! We have even started shopping for a "big boy" carseat! Yes it is already about that time! I took tripp to the store on friday and we tried out sitting in the cart. He loved being able to see everything, but about halfway through he got fussy so I found another position that worked well! (see pictures below). I am so ready to put the carrier away! It is bittersweet....because on one hand it means tripp is growing up (tear) but on the other hand it means my arms and back won't be so sore all the time! ;) On sunday after church, we went over to erik, kristen and kate's house so carl could help his brother with some "handy-man" duties...carl's specialty;) It was nice getting to hang out with kristen and cousin kate! We also got to see aunt mo and cousins blake and jake who stopped by to visit! Later in the day mom and keith came by and brought us some delicious apple pie and ice cream! It was a nice treat! I had to run a little extra this morning, but it was worth it! Keith also gave carl and I a gift card for the movies! We are so excited and are looking forward to some future date nights!!
I guess I have rattled on long enough! I'm sure carl will ask me why I "wrote a novel"...but oh well! Time to go have my quiet time before my little rascal wakes up from his nap (which have become longer these days:)) As usual enjoy all the pictures below!
tripp and sweet cousin kate!

This morning tripp was being a little bit of a rascal, but once he calmed down we went up to northhampton elementary where grammy was helping out and he got to meet a lot of grammy's friends. He was of course a little ham and charmed all the ladies:) We are now back to fussy tripp and looks like it's going to be a long rest of the day! He just woke up so I better run! Here are some fun pics of my little butter bean!! Enjoy!

Although a bit stressful, we managed to have some fun this week. My sister and her boys were in town since her hubby was out of town. So we got to spend some great quality time with her and the boys! We even ventured to the memorial city mall and all piled into our small suv. Tripp loved riding in the car with his cousins and boy was it an experience with 3 young boys! My sister and I were exhausted!! We also made it to bible study this week and tripp was able to hang out with his buddies even and judd and joshua too! Below are some fun pictures of tripp and all the boys!! Boy are we all blessed with such precious little boys!!

Although you can't tell from the above picture, we have had one rough week! Poor little tripper has been so fussy and nothing seemed to soothe him! It all started last monday when tripp started running fever and seemed to be miserable. I took him to the doctor and later found out he had roseola ( a skin rash that can cause irritability). His skin cleared up by thursday but the poor guy was still fussy! On Friday night carl and I were up ALL night with the poor little guy. However, on saturday we spent the day with my family and my mom and sister encouraged us to change his formula to see if it would help...well so far so good! Mommy and Daddy have been getting much more sleep! Needless to say we have been exhausted but things seem to be improving.
Despite the fussiness, we had a great weekend full of family! Saturday we spent the day at my moms and had some yummy food and so much fun! It was so nice having my mom, sisters and brother in law around to help with our poor unhappy little guy. It sure gave carl and I a little break. Thanks yall! We love you! The family fun continued on sunday with dinner at erik, kristen and kate's. We had a yummy dinner and a lot of fun!
Not too much more to report...just hoping things keep getting better! Here are some pictures from the past week....enjoy!!
love to relax in my diaper!
