First cart ride!

Tristan is learning how to put his bottle in his mouth... This however was not working for him and he was getting quite frustrated.

My sweet girls

I feel like since Tristan is "hitting all the stages" ALL my posts are about him. So I wanted to post something about my sweet girls that keep me busy and laughing. I will start with Joslynn because those are the pictures that uploaded first and lets be honest I don't know how to fix it.
Jos is my little ray of sunshine. She is so sweet and has THE biggest heart. She is always thinking about others. She is constantly complimenting everyone. She makes sure you know how much you are loved everyday. She gives hugs and kisses out of the blue and always sticks up for Abby even if Abby is getting in trouble for something she did to Jos. She says the funniest things like when she tripped in the hall and I here a thud and then she calls "It ok! I alright" or when she opens the door to yell to the garbage man "Thank you come again!" She is the first to say thank you for everything you do for her or buy her. She has her moments but she is so precious and she melts my heart everyday. She is always sharing like when her dad brought them home from Abbys dance class and they had starbucks All night she kept asking me if I wanted a sip of hers. "I will share mommy, do you like ice cream? Here take a sip" I love this little girl so much and I feel that without her my world would have a dark cloud around it.

Now to my little Abby that is suddenly not so little anymore. I can't believe how much she has grown up. She is always helping me with everything. Cleaning, Tristan, Tristan, oh and did I metion Tristan? This girl is right there the second he makes a sound. "MOM!!!! Tristan is crying can I get him out of his swing?" Even if its a little wimper she is right there to tell me. She loves to carry him around and he actually loves it too. He is the first one she runs to when she comes back from her dads and the last one she kisses goodbye before she goes. She just adores him. One of my favorite things is picking her up from school. She talks my ear off all the way home telling me every detail about her day. It is so fun to see how much she loves school. She is a little monkey and can climb up anything. She likes to do her own hair and pick her own outfits. Sometimes there is a struggle over clothes. I can't wait till shes a teenager.... NOT! She is also very sweet and I often hear her telling Joslynn to let me sleep a little longer in the mornings. "Come on Jos lets go watch a show and let mommy sleep. She had a rough night." I can't count how many times I have come down to see them already eating breakfast and Abby telling me to go back to sleep. I can honestly say that she is one of my best friends and I love her so very much.

6 months!

Tristan turned 6 months on the 20th! He is getting so big and catching up to regular babies. At 6 months he....
Weighs 14lbs and almost 11oz
Is 25 1/2 in long
rolls over both ways
is talking 24/7!
Has 2 bottom teeth
Has started food and loves sweet potatoes but HATES carrots
loves playing with toys
loves to stand while you hold his hands
looks like he is swimming whenever he is on his tummy
slides on his back using his feet to get places
Tristan is one of the happiest babies I have ever seen. He hardly ever cries so when he does we know he has gas or something. He is always smiling and laughing. We think he has started giving kisses though who really knows maybe he is just trying to eat our cheek. His hair is blond and fuzzy and is growing straight up in the front. He looks like a fuz ball but a VERY cute fuz ball. :) We are so happy to have this little guy in our family. He is such a joy and the girls just adore him!

His teeth

Playing on his play mat (Thanks Mike and Manda for letting us borrow it!)

Check out the hair

He likes to roll over and take it with him. Then he gets very upset until I fix it and smiles and does it again. I think he thinks its a game.

My happy little boy!
