23 Months Old

I can't believe Griffin will be two next month! He is growing up so fast and becoming such a big boy. Griffin loves trucks and trains. He wants to play with his train table as soon as he wakes up in the morning and as soon as he walks in the door in the afternoon. He carries his trucks and trains around the house and there are always trucks parked at the table while he eats. We also look for trucks everytime we are in the car and he calls out the names of all the ones he sees. He especially loves fire trucks, ambulances and dump trucks.

He loves sweets and snacks. Griffin is definitely a sugar monster! He has become a picky eater and after a few bites he tells us that he is "all done" and wants to "get down". At least we have worked vitamins into his diet.

He talks all of the time and loves to repeat everything we say. I'm amazed everytime I hear him say a new word and he is learning so many new ones from school. He's also learned his numbers and can count to five, although he is shy and won't do it when we ask. He will only do it when he thinks we aren't listening.

Griffin is very sweet and loving. He likes to give and get lots of hugs and kisses. At night, he always asks for more kisses before bed and I love that!

Little Picasso

Griffin has really been interested in art lately. Everyday after school he wants to draw and color. We thought it might be fun for him to experiment with paint and he had a blast. He used his hands, got nice and dirty and painted us a beautiful picture.

Big Brother Party

Griffin brought "Big Brother" cookies to his preschool class to celebrate becoming a big brother. The cookies were a big hit and all of his friends got to meet his baby sister.
