We have had a really fun week full of parties, playdates and lots of family time:) We started the week with a visit to my friend kim who just had a brand new baby boy. Baby Max is just precious and we enjoyed meeting him very much. Tripp took full advantage of the fact that I was busy holding baby max. He was getting into everything in their house! He even found the water bowls for their little puppies, poured them out on the floor, then proceeded to "swim" in the water on the floor. He was soaked and when I walked around the corner to see what he was doing he laughed and took off! It was really funny. Needless to say tripp made the trip home in his diaper and wet t-shirt. Poor Kim got a little glimpse of what having little boys is like:)
On Wednesday we hosted bible study/playdate at our house and also had a little celebration for judd's first birthday! We had a full house and kim and baby max even joined in on the fun! We had a great time getting together despite all the chaos. Between the 5 of us girls we had 3-1ish year olds, 1- 8 month old, 1- 3 year old and 1- 4 week old....all boys! I am so blessed to have such great girlfriends and a wonderful support system! plus the fact that we all have little boys around the same age in just icing on the cake! Love you girls!
Thursday we had a chik-fil-a lunch date with michelle followed by a playdate with Brenden & Graham and Katie & Michael. So much fun with the girls and our little boys...so many boys!!
We ended out the week by heading to the park to celebrate judd's 1st birthday! tripp had a blast playing with all his friends and playing with dirt and leaves. Our little boy has been really into leaves lately, especially trying to eat leaves! Trust me this little boy is getting plenty to eat...he just likes leaves for some reason! Whenever we try to take them away he gets very mad! so funny!! He loves being outside so we spend most of our days playing outside....and trying to keep tripp from eating leaves and pine needles;) We rounded out the night with dinner at the pokornys! We had a great meal and a great time! I told you we had a fun week:)
Tripp is also officially walking!! that's right, we have a walker in our home! He still crawls around since he knows he can get around faster crawling, but I have a feeling it will not be long before he is running around!
Here are some pictures from our week...enjoy!
loves to look at the birds in the trees

Hello all! Tripp has been a busy little boy lately. He has been especially interested in his cozy coupe these days. He likes to open the door, climb inside, close the door and watch tv! He also likes to dive out of the windows, such a little boy thing to do! He's also starting to take steps without holding on to anything. In fact this morning as I was loading pictures on the blog, he got out of his car and took 5 steps across the living room without falling! He was so excited and started waving his arms in the air, probably because I was chanting "yay tripp!" and waving my hands in the air;) nonetheless, he was super excited! Of all times I dont have a camera ready! well I now have my camera and video camera right by me!
We have been making the most of all our time couped up inside due to all this crazy weather. We play, nap, snack and practice walking of course;) Tripp also helps mommy with household chores. And by helping I mean, throwing clothes out of the dryer, unfolding mommy's folded towels, starting the dishwasher over and over, eating crumbs off the floor (while I sweep) etc. We have also been having playdates and lunch dates. We got to meet for our bible study/playdate yesterday and had so much fun! Brenden and Graham even joined our group and we love having them! I feel so blessed to have such a good group of girlfriends who all happen to have boys too! Our boys are going to have a blast together.
I have also been busy with all the details of tripp's 1st birthday bash! I can't wait, its going to be so much fun!!
Below are some recent pictures of our little man. Enjoy!
