5 Months Old

I'm a little late with this post, but as I always say....better late than never. On Tuesday Griffin turned 5 months old - and he shared his special day with his Abby, whose birthday is also August 31st - Happy Belated Birthday Abby!

Hmmm....what does this taste like?

I really can't believe how fast the Little Man is growing...and how much he's changed this past month. He's starting to sit up now and loves playing with all kinds of toys. He's trying all kinds of new foods, with varying amounts of success...so far, we've experimented with apples, bananas, avocado, carrots, green beans, sweet potatoes, peas and yellow squash. The favorites right now are apples and sweet potatoes.

Griffin's laughing alot now, still sleeping like a champ, grabbing anything he can get his hands on (earrings, hair, noses, lips), and taking a big interest in our dog Dixie (she hasn't returned his sentiments yet). He loves to play airplane, kicking his rubber duckies in the bathtub, growling, and blowing raspberries. And we've nicknamed him "The Wingman" because of the way he throws his arms back behind him like wings all the time.

And I have to brag on him a little bit...the church nursery workers have already been telling us that he's one of their favorites. I'm sure we're the only parents hearing that, right? :) It's such a privilege to be a parent and witness his growth and development. God's handiwork is truly miraculous!

Visit with Aunt Amy and Philip....Griff looks sad because Aunt Amy is going all the way to Virginia for law school :(

We've had some fun visits with all the grandparents the past few weeks - including a trip to Poppa and Gigi's house for a dip in the pool, and we're looking forward to more family fun with the beginning of football season.

We also got to take some fun pictures at a local studio - G was a fantastic model...all smiles and patience :)
