Happy 10 Months Griffin!

Happy 10 Months to my sweet boy! I can't believe that he's now been here longer than when I was carrying him. This simple fact just blows my mind. His pregnancy just felt soo long and the past 10 months have flown by ridiculously fast.

Here he is enjoying "swimming lessons". :)

Griffin you are :

  • weighing in around 25 pounds I would guess. The last time you were weighed at the doctor you were 24 and that was last month.

  • still wearing size 3 diapers.

  • wearing 18 month clothing but it's really tight on you. I need to pull out the 24 month stuff already. :(

  • I almost missed pulling out the 18 month clothes because I was pretty sure you wouldn't be ready for it yet! I was soo wrong. You blasted through them so quickly. They seemed to fit well one day and then they were too small the next!

  • saying "Momma", "Dada", "Buba", and something that sounds similar to "Yay!" when you clap your hands!

  • clapping your hands when we ask you to (see above statement :). It was just so monumentally fun to see you do it that I felt it needed it's own bullet point!

  • can blow raspberries with the best of them :).

  • eating almost anything. You love fruit and yogurt the best. Oh and anything that you can feed yourself. :) Mostly just puffs and freeze dried yogurt.

  • You still take 2 naps a day on average of about 2 hours each. Sometimes a little more, sometimes a little less.

  • If we are at home you start to rub your eyes (which means you're sleepy) around 6:30.  You are usually laying down for bed about 7 pm. You have been doing much better with nighttime sleeping and will sleep until 5 or 6 am. 

  • still a smiley baby! It's your favorite thing to do! I love this about you. I can tell that you will have a funny and sweet personality when you get older.

  • starting to get some teeth! You have had the two on bottom for a long time now (almost 4 months) and are just now starting to get your two top ones. Only one day were you really really fussy and when I went to check your gums, sure enough, one on top had busted it way through!  I can't wait to see what you will look like when more come in!

  • getting some new friends! Your very first friend came over to the house the other day for a play date and you had a great time!

  • Your new friend Brody is bout a month and a half younger than you but was already crawling circles around you :).

  • Speaking of crawling, you aren't yet :/. You seriously could care less. You do a lot of other things "on track" for your age so I'm not too worried yet. I'll give you another month before I maybe call the doctor to ask...

  • just about ready for your first haircut. I give this a month too before I make the call for your first appointment. It's hanging all crazy by your ears and driving me nuts. 

  • in love with your bath! When you see me turn the water on in your tub you get soo excited!! You will kick and spash in there until you wear yourself completely out. 

I think that that is about it for Mr. Griffin. We are still in such an awe-struck honeymoon time with him. I still can't believe that he's here safe and sound and mine to keep forever. 

Love you sweet boy!!

He's more than half her age and almost as big! At a month shy of 3, Maya is 25.5 pounds! Big boy you got there!!

Kristy said...

Such a big boy! Love his smile!

He sounds like such a good natured baby! Funny he is still in size 3 diapers! H has been in size 4 for a while now but mainly because we needed more absorbency! We are having the same "need a haircut" issue but I just don't want to!!! ;( Can't believe our babies are already 10 months. I, too, am still awe struck that he is here and mine and it seems like he was just born!

He is getting so big!! I can't believe he's almost one!! He's so cute. Max still has no teeth :( he has been teething for what seems like forever but no teeth yet.

The Momma said...

What a sweet boy! I just love all of those pictures of him. :) So cute!! How is he already 10 months?

rebecca said...

Oh my goodness our boys sound so much alike, with the exception of size!
Ian has almost exactly the same bedtime/sleep schedule and we're always getting teased that we put him to sleep so early but seriously the kid will not tolerate being up much past 7 and as you said some nights is earlier! He also loves yogurt, fruit, and puffs! Glad to know I'm not the only one without a crawler:)
