Our life in motion.

So I know that you guys have been wanting to see some videos.  Here they are.  But don't get too excited- this little monkey usually shuts down when he sees me pull out the camera.  He definitely knows when I'm filming and doesn't want to perform.  But these are just a few short little clips of what our daily life consists of (well, when he's standing up, at least:) 

This is something he actually just did today.  He was making a "pig" noise with his trach and "wrinkling" his nose with his finger :)


This is hilarious.  It's the sign language he knows that we put together in a sentence.  
"I'm gonna read a book about poo-pooing in the potty.  And I need help"
haha... don't judge- it's cute and you know it.


Finally caught a VERY short clip of him "holding his breath" :) He's so funny.


My Uncle Ray makes this child laugh and smile like no other.  
As soon as he hears his voice at the door, he pops up and wants to play.  



Also, Tripp got the pleasure of meeing Meghan Linsey from the hottest new duo Steel Magnolia (who are nominated for two ACM (Academy of Country Music) awards this Sunday:)  Meghan is from Ponchatoula also.  We went to high school together and then she moved to Nashville right after high school to pursue her music career.  And boy did she succeed!  She and her boyfriend, Josh won on the CMT show "Can you Duet?"  Well, anyway, I'm sure you all know the rest... since then they've had quite a few hit singles :) They are awesome.  I didn't get to meet Josh... but I was so touched that Meghan took time out of her crazy schedule to stop by and visit.  Especially since we haven't seen or spoken to each other since high school.  She came with my awesome friend Brittany and her adorable little man Carter- check out those beautiful eyes.  This picture does them no justice!!
 But Tripp wasn't having it!! :)

  9. I enjoyed watching these videos!!! Thanks for posting! I do have a question. With Tripp's poor eyesight, how do y'all teach him sign language? I am just amazed at this little boy!!!

  10. those videos are great, he is so funny!!!! i loved each and every one of them!!!!

  11. Between making pig noises, holding his breath & saying he doesn't love Mommy, Tripp is a stinker! I was laughing out loud at his antics. In addition, to being smart, Tripp has a great sense of humor! That's a blessing for this precious boy!!

  12. Oh what a sweet little boy.. He had me smiling. I had the volumne up and my husband heard you talking and as me if it was Andrea.. (our daughter) and then I realized that you did sound like her.. Thanks for sharing the video's.. I loved watching him sign the sound...

  13. Oh he is just precious. I bet you just wanna snuggle him all day. Love the sign language.

  19. The videos are so worth the wait for your update! I love your boy and I pray for him, and the other EB kids, every night. This is how Tripp impacted my life: since I came to know him and Jonah through your blogs, I not only pray for children with SMA, childhood cancer and mitochondrial disorders, but now children with EB have been on my list. And their families, too.
