January 26 was Trip's half birthday. We are continually amazed by him and thankful for such a sweet boy. He's definitely becoming more active and learning lots of new things. It's getting harder to get a good picture of him with his monkey. This time he just wanted to play.
His two bottom teeth are out and growing, which means that he still likes to chew on lots of different things. Our fingers and his bibs are his favorites, making the following pictures a common sight. Kirk got him textured teething toy last week that he really likes too. He's eating several different kinds of vegetables now and loving all of them. He gets quite upset if we don't get that food to his mouth fast enough.
Trip loves his toys and playing with other kids. Our friend and former neighbor, Kristen started watching him this week. She watches a few other kids too and says that Trip laughs at and talks to them all day. He comes home tired from all the activity.
He's almost sitting by himself. He has done it a few times and gets stronger each day.
