Tristan Meets Layla


Tristan finally got to meet Layla.  She was born April 22nd (2 days after my due date), so she is 10 days older than Tristan.  She is so much smaller than him!  lol

When I found out I was pregnant, I became a member on I met a lot of great ladies on my April 2010 board (since I was due in April).  One of the ladies was Megan (Layla's Mommy).  We have talked for the last year and finally was able to get our little one's together for a mini play date.
I recommend anyone who is pregnant to join the boards on WTE.  They were very helpful during my pregnancy and has been fun sharing milestones and frustrations after our babies were born. :)

The Dishwasher


I was unloading the dishwasher and Tristan thought he needed to help.  He had a lot of fun rolling the rack.

"Oh, there's Mommy!"

He pulled himself up by using me... then just held onto a couple fingers while he stood!

First Snow


His first contact with snow...

He was NOT a fan.  He started fussing and crawling... then started crying.  I'm assuming because he was trying to get away from the snow and couldn't.

Love those blue eyes!

Tristan loves to crawl under the table and stand there and play.  It's his first little "fort". hehehe

Learning To Stand


This morning, Tristan cut his eyelid open.  He was a trooper.  I wouldn't have even known if I hadn't seen the little bit of blood in the crease of his eyelid.  It didn't seem to bother him.
I tried to take care of it myself but he kept turning his head; so I had to enlist the help of Kaleb.  Doctor Daddy made it all better.  I think Tristan was more upset that we were holding him down than he was about cutting his eyelid open.  lol
It's looking a lot better tonight.  The cut is almost all healed already and the bruise has gone from a black and blue to a redish purple.  Already!  It's amazing how fast children heal! :)

Kaleb has been working with Tristan on learning how to stand unassisted.  The problem is that he gets so excited he knocks himself down! LOL  It is super cute to watch :)
He will be walking in no time :)

He can stand for a few seconds as of right now.... Love it! :)

He is SOOOOOOOOO stinkin cute!!!
Makes my heart melt. :)

Swinging With His Bear


We haven't been putting Tristan in his swing as much anymore, now that he's older and we've been putting him in his crib to nap.  He's almost to the weight limit so we've been using it a little more.  He's also been really difficult to put down for naps - we are thinking because of teething... so we've been enlisting the help of his swing to get him to sleep, then we turn it off.

I had to send my Nikon in for repairs again :(
So, I'm back to using my Sony.  I love my Sony, but it's just not as good as my Nikon...

Tristan eating sweet potatoes... lol

Tristan loves animals.  My parents' dog, Juno, is no exception.  Juno is a medium sized dog.  And is very well behaved.  My Mom and Dad got him off craigslist.  The lady doesn't know what he is mixed with, but the mom was a black lab (she got the black lab off craigslist and wasn't told she was pregnant- surprise!)
We think he is American bulldog and possibly shar-pei.

Tristan is now standing, holding on to Juno instead of the table.

Tristan tried to eat the puppy... just like he tries to eat our cats.  Silly boy.
