tooth #5 has arrived

top, right of front right. noticed it today. hopefully #6 will arrive soon so we can get a break. this kid is literally dripping drool, it's so gross.

he also pulled up using his high chair today and proceeded to walk around the kitchen a bit with it. looks like I need to pull the walk behind toys out of the attic.

Ryan's first sentence

Ryan and I were playing around with the foam letters from the bathtub building words a la Word World from PBS and while I was putting Tristan to bed, he surprised me with this sentence. I will translate for you:

9 fox, happy to go.

I couldn't be more proud.

more teeth

right now, this is the best place for me to log things that are happening. I will fill in the baby book later, probably.

anyway, noticed last night that the 2nd front incisor made it's way thru, the next two top ones are on their way, hopefully soon.

Tristan says Car now. Took Ryan to get his hair cut at the barber in town last week and there is a cool classic car shop down the block that Daddy takes him to sometimes. I was in there with the boys looking around and Tristan starts saying "Cah!" over and over. Eventually, I figured out that he was, in fact, trying to say Car.

I am drowning in testosterone around here! LOL

Tristan has a nasty cold and is working on those teeth on top, so I decided that this shirt was rather fitting, don't you think? You can sort of see the "faux-hawk" I put his hair into after swim class today too.

Mwa Buh-dee

Tristan now has a 3rd tooth. His top right incisor broke thru officially today. He is still working furiously (and I mean that literally) on the other 3 of the top 4 teeth.

We are taking the house off the market and staying put for at least another year or so - riding out the crappy market and economy. I am actually very relieved, prices are getting so high for everything these days and it will be nice to not increase our mortgage payment at the same time.

Lastly, Tristan has added a few words to his vocabulary. Included are "Buh Bye" with the adorable open/close hand wave and today he was putting his open hand on his mouth and then saying something like "Mwah Buh-dee!" I swear he was blowing a kiss to the dog - how friggin cute is that?? If it becomes a regular thing, I will try to catch it on video.

10 mo old - video and pics

Tristan is 10 months old today. He has been outside of the belly longer than he was in it. Crazy.

He is trying to figure out crawling on hands and knees, but since he gets around so quick on his belly he gives up and just army crawls most of the time. He is really enjoying crawling over things and even up the stairs - eeek! He likes to crawl over to the sofa and pull up to knees and then feet when daddy is lying there relaxing. We have been showing Tristan how to wave Hi and Bye by opening and closing our hand (vs. the side to side open hand wave) and he is just starting to get the opening and closing of his hand, at least the first couple of fingers and thumb. He likes to stick his hand out and say something close to "Hi!" to daddy and to the dog he even adds, "Ha Buh!" for Hi Buddy!

In the last couple of weeks we decided to bite the bullet and I stopped feeding Tristan during the night. It only took about 3-4 nights of some crying and fussing before he figured out that the plans had changed. And not a moment too soon, this morning at 5am, he stirred and got himself up to his knees in his bed and could not figure out how to get back down and cried for a bit. Poor thing, he will figure it out soon, I hope.

Ok, pics and video.

What a happy baby!
Oh, it's you again!

Look at all that hair! Ryan didn't have that much until well after a year.

Mmmmm, bear toes! Yum.
