10 Months!!

10 months later he's.....
  •  cruising the furniture {with speed - and sometimes even one handed!}
  • got 8 teeth total {4 on top, 4 on bottom}
  • still eating baby food.  We've tried table food, but it ends up being chocked on, or thrown on the floor with no interest - unless of course you feed it to him!
  • still loving Mama's milk, I hope he switches over to milk easily!
  • Waking up at night 2-3 times.  Always waking up to be comforted back to sleep.  And as much as I love that...I am ready for sleep!  5 years of being up with kids at night 6-7 nights a week really wears on your body!
  • Is talking more and more every day.  He still says Dada, Baba, and uh-oh!  He will purposefully throw his sippy on the floor and say uh-oh!  Even though he doesn't like his sippy or take 1 drink from it, I think the fact that we offer it to him is good!
  • Is into everything!!  He is so curious about what your doing, and what he shouldn't be doing!  If the bathroom door is left open, he speed crawls to it just to hang out right by the toilet!  Go figure!  
  • He doesn't put much into his mouth yet! {I know, were lucky - I am hoping he skips this phase all together...especially since the older brothers have TONS of mini Lego's all over the place downstairs.
  • He is wearing a size 5 diaper {same as Sammie} and 18-24 month sized clothes - often a 2T {which is also the same as Sammie}  The shorts end up being "shants" {short pants}on him, but the tops fit his mid-section pretty well!  At least I know he's comfortable!
  • Loves playing with Ethan SO much!!  I often find him and Ethan laughing and playing for quite a while!!  Mama is going to really miss Ethan's help when he starts school!!
  • Loves to take a bath with his older brothers {something new Daddy just started while Mommy is working nights}
  • Loves riding in his stroller after dinner.  That's when he's "bored" and loves getting out and about...what are we going to do during the winter months??  eek!
  • Still naps in his swing, with no intention of ever napping in his crib!  I've tried.  He'd rather hang out in it then cry and cry and cry!  But as soon as he goes in his swing - he's sound asleep.  Which by the way...he has definitely OUTGROWN and I actually have 10lb weights holding each leg down! :)
  • Getting very difficult to hold, change diapers and take pictures of.  He is always arching his back {not because of a tantrum...but he must like the way it holding him is hard - especially since he is 25 + pounds} changing diapers all he does is roll around and giggle!  And for taking pictures..he refuses to sit.still!  He is constantly on the go!  I had to give him boppy pins, a yellow circle toy thing to wear on his head and my camera lens cover to play with just to get some mediocre shots!
  • Has inherited the names: G-dawg, Griff-dawg, Griff-a-lot, Griffy Griff, big boy {all from big brother Ethan!}  Mommy of course prefers pumpkin and love muffin {not sure why they all involve food!?}
 {not at all interested in the camera!}

 {the toy I made him wear in order to sit still for one can actually see him arm reaching for it}

{a little blury - kid won't stop moving}

 {here he is chillin in his swing right after waking up}

We all love you Griffin!!

Nakie Boy!

Sammie LOVES to be nakie.  Especially getting rid of his diaper.  You would think he would want to learn how to use the big boy potty, but he still has no interest {just like his brother did at his age}

{cute little bum watering Mommy's flowers}

{it's not what you think, it's the hose!}

when Ethan came out to see us, he was mortified that Sam was standing in the backyard watering plants with no diaper on!  He didn't even want to look!

Vistors from Cali!

We had my family from California come visit us this week!  They DROVE all the way from California.  It took them about 4 days to get here.  I was super excited to see them, and even more excited for them to see the boys, and how much they have grown.

Opa had a great time goofing off with the boys:

{uncle Erik and G}

{sweet memories}

{uncle Ryan}

{the whole family and visitors from MN}

{sparkler time}

We all had a great time with them.  It was sad to see them go.  We spent time at the falls park {which was super hot and humid}.  The weather really put a damper on things we could do with the heat and humidity.  The boys really got attached to Opa and Grandma.  I can't wait until we can see them again.  It was especially great to have them here for fireworks!!
