I don’t think I even wrote up a 9 month update for Tripp. It came and past so quickly. 10 months. It just sounds so… old. Time to start planning the first birthday. Start trying to mentally prepare myself for toddler-hood. Cue the tears.
The last 2 months have been amazing with our Trippy. I really think every day he picks up something new. Tripp isn’t walking yet, and I don’t think he’s really close, but he can stand on his own for 1-2 seconds, and is such a fast crawler I have a hard time keeping up with him! In the last couple of months he’s learned how to clap his hands, and claps on command when he hears “if you’re happy and you know it..” He also raises his hands up when he hears us say “how big is bubby?” Tripp has also started waving and saying “bye bye” when leaving and says “thank you” if you hand him something he wants (this was also one of Maddie Grace’s first phrases around the same age)! He loves mimicking sounds and trying to repeat different words we say to him.
Tripp really loves his different music classes and playing different little instruments and singing along to songs. He also enjoys playing “chase” with his big sister, where he crawls after her and they both laugh hysterically. Sometimes they play this game where they butt heads that I haven’t figured out yet but they both find it humorous. Tripp is a big fan of peek-a-boo, reading books, and watching Mickey Mouse.
But as happy as Tripp is, and in some ways as similar to his sister as he is, there are some things Tripp dislikes that really sets him apart from her. Like how Tripp hates bath time. I mean he hates it, and Maddie Grace always loved it. He doesn’t even want the water touching him. Tripp also hates being thrown in the air the way Maddie Grace loved at this age. He freaks out if you even try. Tripp also isn’t a big fan of going up and down or anything physically too different than just being held and maybe swaying side to side. He sometimes likes going upside down but even that has a limit. He’s just not much of a daredevil at all. Tripp also has made it clear since an early age that he doesn’t like loud noises and he still feels strongly about that.
And it remains true that Tripp has more clothes than everyone else in our family combined. I just really love shopping for him. So I rounded up my favorites right now (most of these I’ve already bought for him) with a shopable widget below:
