6 Months Old!

I am just laying here with Tripp watching him sleep and I am kind of sad at how fast it is all going by. He is now 6 months old, well in a couple of days and I can hardly believe it.I cant believe that I have had him for half of a year and in another half he is going to be one.Life is so busy that I am scared I am not catching every little thing. I want to remember it all. I love to watch him sleep. He is so peaceful looking. He is perfect. He is getting so wiggly he is constantly wanting to move. He doesn't want to be held like a baby anymore and just doesn't want to sit still. He sits and rolls all over the place. It is so fun to watch him try to do things. He is the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. I love the way he looks at me, I know he loves me and depends on everything I do. We are home pretty much everyday. We play, go for walks and read stories. His smile is so big and contagious. It always makes me so happy to wake up to that little smiling face. Right now he is grabbing at everything, especially food. He wants to put everything in his mouth. He grabs my face and puts his face in mine and I like to pretend he is hugging me. He has started to do this angry grunt thing it is really loud and so funny his face turns red and he just looks mad it is so adorable. His hair is getting so long, it stands up all over his head. I love when he sits in his high chair and one by one he throws all his toys off watching them fall to the ground. I love the way he will look at me and play with my face and hair. I love that he is so happy and just wants to smile and laugh at anything. Sometimes he will just laugh at the silliest things and you can tell it is a forced laugh. He will sit in the back of the car by himself and just talk and laugh. It is so fun to listen to. I love that since he was tiny, when he cries it sounds like he is saying mama. I love that in the middle of the night he will cry and the second I pick him up he stops crying. He just wants to snuggle. I love his tiny little baby nose, his big dark thick eye brows, his long lashes, his beautiful blue sparkly big eyes, his big chubby cheeks, his forehead that is a signature copy straight from his dad and that cute little mouth that is constantly wanting to be sucking on his binkie. I love his chubby little fingers I love when he is sleepy he will rub his eyes till they turn red. I love when he gets into a deep sleep and he will start to spit his binkie out and it will hang half way out of his mouth. I love the drewl that is constantly dripping down his chin and getting his shirt all wet.I love how excited he gets for his baba his face turns all splotchy red. I love his chubby little fingers holding that bottle with the tips of his fingers turning white because he is holding it so tight. I love when something scares him and he will look at me before he starts to cry like am I ok. I love loving him this much and wanting to do everything with him and for him. It is such a great feeling. I love all the time we spend together and I wouldn't trade it for anything. He is only getting bigger and I don't want to miss a thing. I love my little Tripp, my husband and my Life. Life is great and I am grateful.

Lake Powell

We went to Lake Powell with the Knaras Fam. We had so much fun. Tripp had a blast, he loved the warm water. We can't wait to go back.

Summer Fun!

Here is what we have been up to this summer. We have been having so much fun. Tripp is getting so big. He can sit up now and he can rollover. I can't believe it.
