griffin {eight months}

Griffin  ::  8 months

The eight month picture was a challenge.


Rolling over wasn't a problem this time...but eating the flash card was. Griffin wanted that piece of paper in his mouth and if I took it away from him, he was mad.

We had a few moments of sweet baby stares...

...and happy smiles.

But the rest of the time he was devouring the flash card.

Good thing you are only eight months once and we don't have to use that flash card again.

He kept putting the card above his head. It was like he was saying, "See mom. I'm eight months old. Now please leave me alone."

I called his brother in for some assistence. Maybe a little distraction would help.

Not so much...it just turned into wrestling.

And then daddy came home. Finally some help! By this time we had printed off a replacement card (because he had eaten the first one). I tried to have Joel sneak in the card while he wasn't looking. It didn't work. He saw that card right away and once he got his little hands on it, was back to eating it again.

Oh well. I guess that is you at eight months.

Griffin,

I don't feel like I have a lot of new things to tell you this month. Eight months has been much more predictable...which is nice because I'm sure that will change again! You have a pretty predictable schedule, you are a predictable eater (by predictable I mean you eat a lot!), and your sleeping is even becoming more predictable. I still wouldn't say that you are sleeping through the night but you are getting so close. So close is much better than waking up ten times every night!

I love seeing your little personality develop. You love being with your brother and get excited when he does things with you. He loves you too. He always wants to know where you are and what you are doing. Before you go to bed he always says, "Good night Gwiffin. I wuv you. I wuv you too." He is already putting words in your mouth but he really does love you.

You haven't started talking yet but we definitely know when you are excited. You love food. You bang  your hands on your highchair while you wait for me to get you something to eat. And if it doesn't come fast enough you practically start yelling...or screaming! If you aren't eating something you are trying to put anything you can into your mouth. Nothing is safe anymore. You also love to take baths. you bang your hands up and down and splash away getting yourself and your brother all wet. You love the water. I'm guessing you will love playing in the pool this summer too.

Nine months is just around the corner and that hardly seems possible. You are growing so fast. I am so thankful for my "two boys" as your brother would say. What a blessing you are to me, little Griffin!

Love, Mama
