*TeN MoNtHs*

Griffin is 10 months old now!!
I can't believe how fast this time has gone.
He is such a sweet little guy, and definetly a mama's boy.
I love it!
He is definetly on the move these days. He pulls up and climbs on everything.
He somehow manages to get himself stuck underneath tables and chairs constantly.
He is learning to express his emotions very clearly. For instance, when I change his diaper and there is something he thinks he should be doing instead....he will ball his fists up and scream at me.
Not cry, but scream! It is so funny but sort of scary at the same time.

I also love that I can start planning his birthday party! I am thinking about a country boy theme.
I ran across the coolest Mossy Oak brand table cloths, plates, etc. online.
I guess you have to be from Alabama for this to be appealing. ha!
I am working on ideas and taking suggestions for a camoflauge cake.
The ones I have found searching Google Images arent very appealing.
I also considered a "dirt cake".
(((((Crushed up oreos and frosting??? Um, yes! thank you!)))))

Anyway, since my 9 months post was only a week or so ago...there isnt much more to update.
Only a week til Christmas! WooHoo!

the kid that doesn't grow




What do all of these photos have in common?
I'll give you a hint.
It's brown.

That's right. Aubree has worn the same cute little Baby Gap coat for 3 years now! My kid is for sure economical when it comes to clothing.
Although she has grown "on paper", you would never know it by looking at her wardrobe!
The sleeves are getting short so I guess this will be the last year for the precious coat.
It is bittersweet!

9...almost 10 months!

I completely forgot to post a 9 month update on Mr.Griffin.
My Baaaad.
He is doing lots of new things!
For starters, he started to crawl on his 9 month birthday.
Coincidentally, the same day I broke my foot and became immobile!
Perfect right???
He started pulling up on furniture......the next day.
I was like, ok, this is too much......
he sprouts a tooth that very afternoon
(((and another one since then)))
Phew, I cant keep up with this kid.
So far he can say: mama, dada, baba, bite bite,
uh oh (my favorite), and bye bye.
i realize all of these sound the same from the mouths of babes...
but you can SO tell that he means different things when he says it.
I have lots of new photos, but i cant find the cord I need to upload them. I will soon though, I promise!!!!
