I can't believe he's one year old! SERIOUSLY. Where did the time go? i'm so so so lucky to be his mommy. literally, i think i have the sweetest baby on the planet. he makes me laugh every single day. at one, Griffey is a wild wild man. he waves, smiles and says "hi"-all day long to everyone...it's quite humorous. we stop a whole lot of traffic wherever we go. lately, G pulls himself up to everything and walks along the couch. he takes steps if we hold his arms. he says mama, mommy, dada, daddy, hi daddy, baby(kind of) and baba. he shakes his head no (excuse me, who taught him that?), dances to music, sings to himself and adores rolling a baseball back and forth. baby boy LOVES the beach. i think he was born to be a fishy. Griff loves to play with his aunts and uncles and cousin Beckett Flynn. he has 4 bottom teeth and two top teeth just made an appearance this week. his favorite foods are peaches, canteloupe, bananas, yogurt, black beans and cheerios.
Griff spent his 1st birthday in California with family (minus daddy who couldn't get away due to classes; don't worry, we had 2 parties). everyone gathered together for my grandma's funeral. it turned out to be a very bittersweet weekend. we are so happy gran is out of pain and with grandpa again. i think of her every time i play the piano. I'm so thankful i was blessed with a slice of her musical gifts. she was a very talented musician, although she'd never admit to it in a hundred years. we love you gran.
ps, traveling alone with a baby really wears me out. more posts to come soon.
