For all of you who don't know this little guy yet, let me tell you a few things about him. As I've said in the past, he loves milk. Poor little Tristan may love it a little too much, as he sucks it down so quickly he can't help choke and then get numerous air bubbles. Besides the milk, he loves to cuddle and be held. This is no problem as we love to hold him and just watch as he makes the funniest faces-he's a real character just like his dad.
I have been so blessed to have my mom here helping with Tristan's first few weeks. Her time here has been priceless as she has taken him and let me shower or just have some time alone with Paul. He won't remember but he's been able to bond with Grandma and have alot of special time with her.
This past weekend Tristan was a little fussier than usual and I just couldnt figure out why he was so agitated. Thanks to Aunt Emily, we learned that little Tris was being tormented with a bad case of gas. She gave me some great pointers on how to help Tristan with this, and he has been much happier since. Thanks Emily!
As one last blurb about our little guy, we went on our first big trip with Grandma Baier and Tristan was a real trooper! This past Saturday we went to Heidelberg and Paul strolled Tris all over the city, as well as up a tremendous hill to get to a castle and he didn't make a peep. I was told this was because of the cobblestone streets, which I'm sure will come in real handy when I'm not able to console him in the future. On the down side of these European streets, I'm sure they will be the cause of our strollers very quick demise. Our Graco stroller may not last long after trips out here, and we may have to invest in one of these Euro strollers that have tires and shocks that look like they belong on a four wheeler.
