Chance Meeting


Babette finally got to meet Tristan! She just happened to be at my in-law's when I swung by to drop off some stuff to Kaleb.

I can't get over how much she looks like my Mom.... kind of weird... lol

He was studying the frog, intensely.

And then himself...

There is a big antique mirror, that was my Grandma Hazel's, hanging in Tristan's room. When I exit his room, I always stop at the mirror to get Tristan interested. For a long time, he just didn't care one bit about the mirror. Then, he started looking around in the mirror... and found me!

Today, he finally found himself! It was SO funny. I couldn't stop laughing...
He just stared at himself. Then I asked him if he was going to smile at himself. After that, he just smiled and laughed and talked to himself!

In The Grass


I had him on a blanket at first because the grass was a little dry and hard - he was SO happy!
Then moved him to the grass... he's not so sure about this new surface. Maybe some softer green grass next time....

Story Time


Tristan sat through the whole book... and looked at every page!

On A Swing


I took Tristan to the park today.
It was his first time in a swing!
He loved it.
He is SOOOO cute! :)

He liked looking at all his surroundings too.
He is such a curious baby. :)

Tristan has VERY strong legs! At 3 weeks old, during tummy time, he would push himself across the blanket... I was not a fan of this because he was pushing his face into the blanket. But anyway...

For about 2 weeks now, he's been standing when I hold him up. And a couple days ago, he was sitting on my lap, I had a hold of his hands and he pushed himself up to standing!

So, I thought I would give his Baby Einstein bouncer another try. We had put him in it weeks ago, but he could barely reach the floor and was still to small to reach over the chair part.

He is still REALLY small in the seat, but he reaches the floor and is tall enough to reach over the seat!! He loves it! He stood there for about 20-30 minutes playing and talking. He is so amazing! And just over 11 weeks old! :)

April Baby Idol - Round One


I have been a member of the WTE April 2010 Babies board since I found out I was pregnant. The ladies on there are incredible and helped a lot through my pregnancy. We became a little community. I recommend anyone who is expecting (man or woman) a baby to join the boards – they are very useful!

So, for fun... One of the ladies is holding an April Baby Idol :)
It's a lot of fun seeing pics of all the babies.

The winners of the first round were announced today and Tristan won 1st place in the Cutest Newborn category! See! I am always telling Tristan he is the cutest baby in the world LOL :)

I love my little man :)

Kaleb is so cute with Tristan. He is such a proud Daddy.

Tristan is pretty advanced for his age.. And Kaleb said today that Tristan's superhero name is “Awesome Boy” :) It made me smile :)

First Fourth!


We took Tristan to the parade in Sedro-Woolley this morning.

He slept through the first half...

Then woke up and was enjoying the festivities with his Daddy...

But crashed again once we got back to Nana's house...
