Having fun with Susan and Roxie

Griffin enjoyed sharing his snacks with Roxie today. He thought it was funny watching her clean up after him. She enjoyed taking his cookie. Susan, on the other hand, was happy to let him finish his own cookie.

Cuteness runneth over in the tub

He loves the tub and seems to be quite comfortable in the water.

Weekly swim lesson

Today we learned to push baby through the water when putting them under. This is so they instinctively blow out and don't swallow too much water. At least his mouth is closed in the picture. He wasn't overly thrilled afterwards but he didn't make a fuss.

Here are also some locker room photos before class.

Griffin is technically mobile! He can now move backwards but unfortunately he is getting himself stuck. Those darn chairs just get in the way!

Griffin and I made some cards this year.  Well, I did most of the work.  He played nicely on the floor next to the table.

For family and Friends

For Griffin's baby girl friends.
Inside says ...Always be your valentine!

For Griffin's baby guy friends.

Jumping in!

Today we tried jumping in all the way under the water.  No tears!! He did swallow quite a lot of water though.

Edited 2/10/13 - Video!

Today was the first time Griffin went to the park to swing. I can't believe it's taken me this long but it has been wet and cold.

He loved it. At first he was more interested in where Lavi was so I turned him around. He laughed when I gave him big pushes.

Now I can't wait to hang up our own park swing that we received as a gift from Diane Sweeney.

Bath climber

So far the bath tub is the only place Griffin is mobile and is trying to pull himself up. I'm so glad he loves the water.

Birthday post

Today was a great day. I got to enjoy time with Matt and Griffin in the morning. We tried a new food cart that makes amazing bagels. Griffin and I stopped at Michaels and picked up a few things to make. We then went for a stroll with Cheryl and Addie in the unusual winter sun. We topped off the day with dinner at Rogue with Susan and Doug, Nora and Dave, and Laura and Marv. Lots of fun!! Plus the beer and shirt are always a plus! It was a great day.
