one busy little boy...

Things have been really busy at our house lately! Our little boy is on the move! We put him in his walker and he takes off! I can put him in on one side of the kitchen and before I can even walk to the sink he is right at my heels! He's a fast little guy! He especially loves when daddy is home, he will take off in whatever direction daddy happens to be. Lately, Tripp has been especially fascinated with the trash can! I have to keep that sucker as clean as possible because he will zoom over in his walker and grab that can! This morning I walked over to the bathroom to get a towel and when I came back tripp had zipped across the kitchen and was trying to put part of the trash bag in his mouth! yuck!! mommy has to watch very closely these days!! Tripp also likes to roll and scoot around all over the carpet! I can't leave him alone for a second or he'll scoot himself all the way across the room and try to grab something hes not supposed to have. The mischief has already begun!

Tripp is getting so big! We have started having all meals in his high chair now. He likes to snack on gerber puffs while eating his meals. He even finished a whole jar of baby food last night at dinner! Boy is he a good eater:) We also bought a new tub for tripp. We bought him a rubber ducky inflatable tub which has been great! Tripp sits up in there and plays with his toys. The duck even quacks when you squeeze its beak...tripp loves it! Tripp has also been taking a longer morning nap these days, which is great for mommy to get stuff done:) lots of changes in the schindewolf house!

We took tripp to get his 6 month pictures taken this past weekend. I planned it out so that we would go right after nap and tripp would be happy. He was happy as could be until we walked into the studio. He then proceeded to scream the entire time! We did manage to get a few cute pictures though! It was pretty funny!! Guess tripp really is like his daddy and hates having his picture taken, he even took a pee pee all over the set! wow, good times;)

Last night we hosted small group and afterwards we all went outside since the weather was so nice. The guys started a little football game and the little guys (our babies) really enjoyed watching their daddys play! Tripp would laugh everytime someone caught the football! Poor daddy was very sore this morning;)

This morning we had playgroup/bible study at our house as well. We decided to do most of it outside since it felt so great out! Tripp really loved it! We love this fall weather and can't wait for it to stay!!

Well that is about all that has been going on around here. Here are some pictures from our week....enjoy!

Sunday Funday and a few pics...

caught tripp making a funny face at church!

What a fun sunday we had! We started off our day at church then had lunch at katz's deli. We came home and put tripp down for a nap then went on a family bike ride and tripp got to take a real ride in his bike trailer. He loved it and mom and dad enjoyed it very much too! We came home and got the house ready for our small group. As usual we had a great group and had a lot of fun too!! We are so blessed to have such great friends and family to fellowship with! The rest of our weekend was fun too. Tripp went to his first birthday party, jaimee lynn's and had a lot of fun watching all the kids run around! We also spent part of saturday with yaya, aunt mo and cousins blake and jake havng lunch and shopping while daddy was mowing. It was a really fun weekend topped off by a really great sunday!

Tripp has been very busy these days. He does not like to stay in one place. We will sit him in front of his toys and within minutes he is off! Not quite crawling yet but scooting himself across the room! It is too cute! His cold is still kind of lingering around and we have had some sleepless nights, but hopefully it will start improving real soon! Other than that things are great! Well here are some pictures from our weekend and last week....enjoy!

So Blessed!

Tripp has definitely been on the move these days! Here is a little picture of what my days are like:

how he innocent

time to move...

here i go!

and over the pillow....

and now scooting himself all around the room!
Needless to say I can't leave this little boy alone for a second! One day tripp scooted himself all the way over to the couch where he proceeded to try and grab my computer cords which were under the couch! The time has come....mobility!
Tripp is a really good little baby. We just love him to pieces! I love seeing him get into mischief and just look up at me with that innocent face like, what mom? He is also getting over the nasty cold he had, thanks to dr. watson and the meds he prescribed. Daddy and mommy have been getting much more sleep! He is just so precious and I love spending everyday with him!!
We have had a busy week already! Monday night Carl's sweet family took us out for my birthday. It was a lot of fun and tripp enjoyed seeing his cousin kate. We also hosted a small group on sunday and bible study on wednesday! Tripp has just loved seeing his buds, evan and judd! And we have had a blast fellowship-ing with great friends! We truly are blessed! Today tripper and I did some major grocery shopping, going to wal-mart and sam's! He was a little trooper and had fun with mommy! He just loves when people stop to say what a cute baby he is. He just gives em' a big ol' grin! I love it!!
As usual, here are some pictures from the past week....enjoy!

our little family!

I now refer to his exersaucer as the "pooping machine" because this is tripp's fave place to do his business!


loves his daddy...almost as much as he loves to drive;)

A Very Happy Birthday!

I may be 27, but i'm still a child at heart! (thanks blakey for taking a great picture:))

I have had the greatest birthday of my life this year! Mainly because tripper was here to celebrate with me!! I have such wonderful family and friends who made me feel very special. The morning of my birthday started with breakfast in bed from my wonderful hubby and baby boy! After Carl went to work Tripper and I played together all morning! Later on in the morning, my dad and ginger stopped by and brought me a pumpkin spice latte, my favorite!! For lunch we headed up to my mom's office where my sister met us and brought us all some yummy sushi and edemame for my bday lunch! That night, carl came home with flowers and 2 cards, one from him and one from my baby! my mom stopped by to watch tripp while carl took me out to dinner. It was a great day overall! I also had numerous phone calls, texts, emails and facebook messages from so many friends and family. I love you all and feel very blessed!! Saturday my mom and keith took all of us out to dinner and treated us with yummy cupcakes for my annual birthday celebration. It was a lot of un and very good!! However, our little buddy came down with a cold friday night and was feeling a bit under the weather, poor guy! We still managed to have great time!! Thanks guys, love yall!!

Today poor tripp has been snezzing and snezzing and has a runny nose:( So we were not able to make it to church, but we were able to watch it live online. What a powerful service! So glad we didn't have to miss it! We are very excited about starting our small group tonight! Can't wait to see what God has in store for us all!

Well below are some pictures from my birthday celebrations and a few others! Hope you enjoy.
