8 Months!

Mr Griffin is 8 months old!
Chillin in Mom's Jacuzzi- aka the Kitchen Sink.
I had a birthday- This is the last year in my 20s- gotta make it count! Kev did a fabulous job and treated me like a Queen.
Griffin Isn't crawling yet, but sleeps on his knees at night-Silly boy. I gets in crawling position and then flattens his body and scoots across the floor with his hands and toes.
A couple of the monthly pics I take.

This boy has 5 teeth and 3 more breaking through. ahead of schedule!

I've started keeping a journal that I try to write in once a week with all the things Griffin is doing and special moments, experiences with him. It has been very cool and I know I'll be so glad I did it in the future.
I'm working at a center for eating disorders, running groups, workshops,and individual counseling. I have clients that are non eating disorders as well- loving it.
We visited family in Indiana and Wisconsin. I am visiting Oregon in November. Kevan turned 31 and we are enjoying life. Will post pics soon.

6 Months

My Friend Megan comes over to hang out and often brings her camera to snap some pics of my little man for fun. I tell her she can practice ANY TIME!

15 lb 14 oz
25th Percentile- Doc says he's a petite guy but very healthy.
Sits up
Has the most gorgeous blue eyes and long lashes-  strangers constantly compliment him.
just a happy boy through and through.
I've been making my own baby food. Mostly to save money but also because it's way healthier, we've had some great adventures with it so far.

Renee the friend that did his newborn pics took some great 6 months pics recently as well I will post those soon!

Griff- Update at almost 5 months

These pics are in no specific order. But wanted to do an update through pictures.

All the Lowe boys were in town in April.
 The boys got me this beautiful orchid for Mother's day. LOVE IT!
 This little boy LOVES to stand up.

 Oh the puppies. This little puppy thinks the baby is his. He licks the baby like he's a Popsicle, and loves to be around him- usually he guards the baby.
 Working on rolling over...
 I am working on a project where I take a pic of the little man each month close to his monthly birthday.. This pic was pretty funny- He was NOT in the mood!
 a rare picture of us together.
 This little boy loves bath time!
 Tummy Time!  Look at those pretty blue eyes!
 The Shirt says it all...

Before he started losing his hair in the front. Loves his time with daddy. He constantly smiles when Daddy comes in the room, and talks and talks to Daddy like no one else. (2 months old)
Love those blue eyes
Griff's first time swimming. We found another mom and baby at church. Little baby girl is only 2 weeks younger then Griff. We go over there once a week to swim, make babyfood, and play!
2 months old
With Cousin Brady on Daddys side
Prefers his fingers to a pacifier- sometimes sticking his whole fist in his mouth
For awhile Mommy went through 20+ bibs a day. Griff got his tongue clipped on June 18th. Dr stated it has caused him to swallow air,  which combined with reflux is why he was puking so much. Being tongue tied is also what made breast feeding next to impossible and frustrating. Dr also stated he would have poor language development and difficulty eating solid foods.  He's a whole new baby, can keep a pacifier in now, eats way better, less puking and is a much happier baby! (My first Doctor missed this for 4 months even though i took him in several times stating there was something wrong due to weight loss and all the puking but doctor brushed me off, so I switched Dr's and they found the tongue tied problem as well as his severe milk allergy.  Poor boy and poor mommy! We are much happier now.
Oh the eyelashes, definitely got those from daddy!
First visit to the beach. loved curling his toes in the sand. (3 months old)
Playing on the floor with mom
(almost 3 months)
Picnic on the patio
Loves his cousins Cade and Brooke.

Truly is a happy baby all the time. People always comment on how easy and happy he is.  One of my favorite pics of all time capture his smile and how he looks day to day.

Love love loves time with daddy. He's sitting talking (babbling and cooing at daddy). (3 months)
