House and Tristan

Yum!! Those bananas I dripped down my bib sure taste good!

Look what she makes me eat!! Can you believe it?

Who needs a playpen when you have a laundry basket?

Pics for Mom

Here is the living room on the left, the dining room on the right and we have our computer set up on the card table in the right bay window.

Here is another view of the living room where you can see the bay window.

Our bedroom...dresser on the left, closet on the right.

Tristan tries out his "new" $4 high chair.

I think he likes it! :)


Jason crawls into Tristan's crib with him!

Tristan doesn't know what to think about having to share his bed. :)

Emily lets us know that Tristan is all hers!

I realized that I have not put on any recent videos of Tristan. I will link several for you.
This first one is of Tristan swinging at the park.
This video is of Tristan in his crib just hanging out.
Tristan rolls over in this video.
Tristan decides that he wants to play with the camera.

Words to Live By

There are three simple words that begin with an "S,"
They are wise with wisdom, the world cannot guess.
But those who employ them their beauty confess,
Keep silent, keep sweet, and keep stepping.

Keep silent, when rumor against you is stirred
When friendship is hurt, like a broken-winged bird,
When clamors the heart for a right to be heard,
Keep silent, keep sweet, and keep stepping.

Keep sweet, when annoyed by some petty affair
When those whom you love, on your loyalty wear.
When the milk of your spirit is curdled with care,
Keep silent, keep sweet, and keep stepping.

Keep stepping when other folks hinder your way
When wearied and worried, you finish the day,
Too footsore to walk, too breathless to pray
Keep silent, keep sweet, and keep stepping.

Keep silent, and spare yourself needless regret
Keep sweet, and the whole world will be in your debt
Keep stepping with Christ, the truest friend yet
Keep silent, keep sweet, and keep stepping.

Seattle with Kevin and Jess

The 3 of us in waterfall park in Seattle.

Kevin and Jess stopped in Seattle for a day on the way up to her brother's wedding. We came over and met them. It was really, really great to see them again!

Our hotel was directly across the street from the left field entrance to Safeco Field.

Kevin gave Tristan a ride.

So did Jason!

Recipe for Motherhood

I found this today, and thought it was pretty cute. I've been making and freezing baby food for Tristan today. I'm anticipating that he will need it soon! He has been eating some rice cereal about every other day. Today he tried a little banana with it. Yum!
