17 months

Griffin is 17 months old today ... we can't believe it. That just sounds so old! Our sweet boy is very talkative these days, energetic and full of life.

Griffin is saying so many new words like mama, dada, truck (duck), NO (which I hear a little too often), up, down, bye and hi. He also started telling Scott "bye dada" when he leaves the room. It's amazing how many phrases he understands and how much he is learning everyday.

We've been working on learning our body parts. He's learned nose, ears, teeth, toes, belly button and eyes. Griffin likes to point them out and then find them on mama and dada too. He also likes to find the body parts on his stuffed animals.

Griffin really started becoming interested in his stuffed animals. He takes them with him everywhere he goes, even just walking through the house. He loves sleeping with them at night and if he spots one in the store - watch out - we will be going home with it.

He claps when he does something he likes and on the other hand will have a tantrum if he doesn't get his way. This is an interesting stage as we try to help him work through his frustration.

Griffin still loves being outside and he prefers to run instead of walk. He takes lots of mini steps at record speed.

So busy he rarely has time to look at the camera

Ignoring the camera on purpose :)

13 weeks

The first trimester is coming to an end and the baby is growing as expected. I had an ultrasound today and it was wonderful to see the baby moving around. Here are a few pictures of our sweet baby.
