We're Walking, We're Walking...

Tripp started walking about 2 weeks ago but has just gotten to where he does it all the time! He is so proud of himself and it's been funny for us to watch! Sorry the video is sideways. Couldn't quite figure out how to flip it after I downloaded it???
We had just finished playing in the water so he has his bathing suit on!

Bunnies, Bulldogs and Buddies, Oh My!

Tripp's first Easter was a joy for all 3 of us. We had an Easter Egg Hunt at the Country Club Saturday and he wasn't quite sure what to think about crawling in the grass looking for those egg things. But, once he figured out there was candy in them he was more than happy to find eggs!
Of course, we are blessed to have a Risen Savior that died for each of us and were overjoyed that He has sent us our little boy to share that love with this year!
(Sorry for all the pics)

Our Easter basket...he was more interested in the grass stuff inside it!

Figuring out the whole egg thing

Still not real thrilled with the year he'll love it!

Our sweet friend, Ella

I think he was in deep thought about his daddy's golf game!

Our attempt at another family photo...

Easter Sunday in the backyard

Our three favorite buddies in the world. Jay woke him up to play with them and he squeals anytime they walk in the room! We love all 5 of yall, Thoms!

Sweet baby...with ravioli on his face, again!

Surely Daddy was explaining to him that he needs to be a Georgia fan! It's easier on both of us this way!

The boys! Jay's dad (JLW 1), Bennett (Uncle Bobby), Jay and another 'let me down' face on Tripp

Dryers and Ravioli

Tripp is ALL over the place!!! He's still not walking on his own but I think it's because he's so fast crawling! The other day I stepped out of the laundry room to grab my camera so I could grab some cute pics of him and this is what I found first....

Then I went to grab my phone and returned to find Tripp head first in the dryer...feet kicking in the air and grunting so what else would a good mother do but help a little man out and put him completely IN the dryer (yes, you all have permission to call child services now!) Hey, he had fun and that's all that matters, right?!?

This is how he does his feet every time he's in his highchair...just a cute quirk!

Bunny Ears and Ravioli, really mom?

New games

Playing in Fred's bed

Playing Peek-a-boo with Fred (Fred only thought he was safe under the bed!)

Our other favorite place...the pantry and all our trash bags!

More old pictures

Our hard hat from Handy Manny Party

We love cups!

His shirt said, 'Call Me'!

Our favorite thing to do...just a swingin!!

Shout Out

Wanted to give a shout out to my cousin, Anne, who is an artist to say the least! For Christmas I gave Jay a charcoal drawing she did of Tripp at 4 months and he cried! She is extremely talented and doesn't give herself enough credit for this gift she has been given!
She and I have been like sisters since birth and I just wanted to let everyone in on her little secret!!! Please take time to look at her site and the beauty of the pic below that I now have framed in my dining room!
