Everything is a toy!

Now days you are into EVERYTHING!! The plus side of it though is that you are wanting to grab and play with anything that I put in front of you. Today you went to Mommy's football practice and this water bottle pacified you for most of the time!

5 months old!!!

You are 5 months old today! Now that you are sitting up it is a little harder to get your picture with Sojo. Plus you are all over the place and wanting to get your hands on everything so poor Sojo didnt stand a chance ha!

You are officially bigger than Sojo now :)

And Sojo is in a headlock...

now down for the count.
Boy our month pictures with Sojo could get quite interesting from now on ha!!!
Here are some things about life for you as a 5 month old:
-wearing 3-6 and some 6-9 months
-wearing size 3 diapers
-sitting up by yourself
-sleeping from 8ish until between 6-8
-roll over onto your stomach during the night to sleep
-taking 2 good naps and several cat naps a day
-laughing at your mommy and daddy all the time
-love playing in your exersaucer
-put EVERYTHING in your mouth
-scooting some when having tummy time
-enjoy mommy singing Jesus loves me to you
-and now eating cereal and loving it.....

We decided to try your first taste of cereal tonight and you truly loved it!!! Mommy couldnt get the spoon to your mouth quick enough- you were grabbing it and pulling it to you.

I would say it was definitely a success by the look on your face :)

video of the start- unfortunately the memory got cut short so the majority of it is on the video camera and blogger doesnt like to upload its file. bummer!!

Lazy day...

You did a little jumperoo while Mommy sewed today. It was a rainy day so we were stuck inside :(

And when Daddy got home he was pooped from all his hard work so you too took a little nap. Nothing like napping on a rainy night!

You recognized your name and you can sit up!!!!

This morning when you were sitting in your exersaucer you had your back turned to me. when i called out your name you turned around immediately. i thought it might have just been by chance so I waited for a few minutes and did it again. You recognized your name! After so long of us saying it, you realize that Griffin is you :)
We went to get your 5 month pictures taken today and you showed how big you were by sitting up all by yourself!!! I was so impressed as I had not let you do it enough before on your own. I had no idea that you could and you shocked both me and the picture lady haha!!
Tonight we had some mommy and son time while Daddy did his homework. I love the times when you grab my face and pull me close and just giggle like crazy when I talk to you.

Happy Anniversary Mommy and Daddy!

Today is your Mommy and Daddy's 3rd anniversary. We had a pretty low key day celebrating, but we dont have to do anything miraculous to be thankful for our many blessings that God has given us! And that smile alone on your face is enough to make us so blessed!!!

We got out wedding photos, old college and high school photos and reminisced of our many years together. We also got our your johnny jump up for the first time so that you could play in it!
We love you so much little boy. And you are the best present either of us could have. This 3rd year of marriage will always be remembered as the year we welcomed you into our family!

Special visitor!

Here you are being a sleepy head after your nap this morning. I love it when you start to wake up and open your eyes and then look up at me and smile. My heart melts every time!!!

Daddy put you on your rocking giraffe for the first time while Mommy prepared dinner. We had a special visitor tonight....

Mommy and Daddy's sweetest friend from college- Sarah Mac! She was in town for work and we were so thankful she was able to come and spend the evening with us! She is a faithful follower of this blog and knew that you loved going to baseball games so she brought you your first baseball! We just loved our time with her and you liked her a lot too. Being a girl AND a blonde- you were in heaven with her :)

Matching hats and Mohawks!

Here are you and Daddy with your matching UT hats on. There is a funny story behind this picture...
Yesterday I had sat out your outfit for the day before I went to play my flag football game and I had included your hat that I wanted you to wear. Well when you and Daddy showed up at the game he had his hat on but you did not. So for some reason I assumed that he made a mistake and wore the hat that I had sat out for you. Of course he said, "No sweetie, there is no way that I could ever wear Griffin's hat...." and so we just laughed. Well today I asked him to put it on just so we could laugh about it later and thus the reason for him wearing your hat here and you wearing his. Mommy is so silly :)

Your recent new thing is to try and hold things with your feet. Here you are playing with Sojo and holding him up with your feet!

You have also started growing more hair lately, BUT it is only coming in on one spot- the very top of your head! Therefore at bath time today I decided to give you a mini mohawk since you it seems that you are growing one out ha!

Gator Haters

Today we played the Florida Gators who just happen to be #1 in the Nation. Well most people laughed at us for even cheering and thinking we would have a chance... but we did! They only won 23-13. And of course since you are a fan since birth you have no other choice than to be in orange :)

We went over to watch the game with Papaw Micah and Aunt Haley. They had just got Lottie a new carrier and so we decided to let you try it out.. and you loved it!

You love to pull hair!!!

I love this picture because Ted looks like your guard dog ha!

AND look at you being a big boy and standing on your own! We found out by accident that you could do this ha. You are loving it as long as you have something to balance onto.

Here you are with your monkey feet again :)

Mommy's helper

You are still very obsessed with talking on the phone and every time that I get it out you start going crazy. This time you found it on your own and opened it up and everything so that we could call Daddy...

You love hearing other people's voices on the other side.. especially Daddy's!!

Today was laundry day and today you helped me.. well the best that a 4 month old can ha! You thought it was hilarious when I came into your room and put them all over you :)

You and your bouncy seat used to get along. Every night when I am cooking dinner this is where you would play. Well now I am not sure what we are going to do because you are totally bored with all of the toys that hang off of it. So bored that you tore them all off and threw them in the floor ha!

Sitting up more by yourself. It wont be too long!

Our little HAM!

People always ask me how many times a day I take pictures of you because you are always smiling in them all... Well you are just a HAM is all I can say! I literally get out the camera and as soon as you see it you just start cheesing it up ha!

You have really started enjoying your exersaucer more now. You will go around to each little toy thats on there and play with them before moving on to the next. Your favorite is the puppy dog, but you get so upset that you cant tear it off and just eat it!!!

Daddy had to study tonight but you didnt let that stop you from hanging out with him. You sure LOVE your Daddy!

The pjs say it all- you were up ALL night :(
