Tripp- 9 month update

I am not sure where time has gone but here we are and Tripp is 9 months old!

He is crawling like a champ, pulling up and walking along furniture.  He will even take his hands off and stand solo for a few seconds.

He babbles like crazy and is quite the ham.  He LOVES food and we are still breastfeeding. I am so proud to say we have made it to 9 months! It hasn’t been the easiest journey but we have hit our stride (knock on wood).

We finally sleep trained and he is sleeping SO much better.  So this is one HAPPY mama.  Thanks to preciouslittlesleep, where I got my tips and tricks to take the plunge! And the training was so simple and went very smoothly.  He loves his straw cups now so the Doctor gave us the go ahead to say bye bye to bottles when we do feed him frozen milk.   You would think he would be a chunk with how much he loves food and milk but he is still just 18.5 lbs.  He is 28inches long and his head is in the 99th percentile (for all the brains!!!).

Tripp’s favorite toys are cars and he loves to tear up magazines. He loves bath time and anything that involves him getting to play outside.  Thank goodness we have had awesome winter weather here in Texas.

I cannot believe the next update will be at a year old.  Time flies but I love getting to see him learn and grow!

The photo below is from a fun little Valentine’s Day shoot we did. It took several goldfish and yogurt puffs to get this kid to sit still and cooperate for a few good shots. Love him so much!

Valentine’s Day Purchase List

Well, well, well, January came and went faster than ever! I can’t believe it is almost Valentine’s Day!  I don’t know about you but I am not a fan of [or good at] being overly romanic.  Valentine’s day always seems extra hard to me because Christmas and my husbands birthday happen 9 days apart and I feel like that I never think to save a gift for Valentines so then I am left to scramble!  So here goes a “Top 5” list.  Most of these are classic items that you can “put in your back pocket” for any event that may arise.

Also, while I am at it… I figure I’ll make a top ten classic “For Her” list!  I tried to do a range of prices so there is something most everyone can afford! If all else fails a home cooked meal date and a red box movie is a WONDERFUL go to Valentine’s Day idea!

For Him:

Nordstrom: The North Face ‘eTip’ Gloves” ON SALE $30.15
**Great for the tech lover! These ACTUALLY work!  Don’t go cheap on these kind of gloves because they don’t work well #ilearnedmyfrugallesson!

These are a fun spin on the cufflink! They have animals and other “random” things too!
