Lots of Pictures and Updates...

It's been a little while since the last post...

Griffin went on his first mini vacation.  He, Mimi, Gramps, Mommy and Daddy went to Key West for a night.  He was sooo good.  He loves traveling and being outside.  He is so tolerant with sounds and was even comfortable and content in bar/restaurants in Key West that had live music.  He definitely takes after both parents.  :)   

Here are a couple pics of the Key West trip...

Bad glare on this one, but I thought I'd post it anyway...

Griff's dollar at Willie T's...



Mmmm, good lunch!...

Southernmost Point...





Griffin also had an exciting night recently, at home with Mimi and Gramps watching the Superbowl, rooting for the Steelers.  




This past weekend, Griffin helped to celebrate Martina's 30th birthday and he also got to meet Beth!  Here are some pictures from the weekend...

Here is his first smile caught on camera--ADORABLE!!!...


He looks so cute in the hat that Grandma Z made for him...


Here I think he is praying that Beth comes to visit him lots and lots and brings her beautiful daughter, Kiley, for him to play with...


And today, for Gramps 65th birthday, Griffin got to go to the beach for the first time.  Of course, I have the trip documented with pictures.  :)

Here he was being super cute and smiling at me.  He also cooed for the first time!  I think he was telling me he liked the beach...


Then he became a little more serious...


Besides all this fun, Griff also had a doctor's appointment this week.  It was his one month visit.  He has grown like a weed!  He went from 7 lbs 15 oz at his two week appointment to 9 lbs 12 oz!  And he grew from 20.5 inches to 22.75 inches!  The doctor was amazed at how much he has grown.  Everything else with the doctor was fine.  He is doing great and is perfectly healthy.  I am so thankful for how great of a little boy we have!

Hope you enjoyed the pictures and update.  Leave comments.  :)

Hey guys!

Great pictures! It's aboot 8:35 on Friday night and we think maybe Lori is starting to have some contractions. We had an appointment today and scheduled an induction for Wednesday the 18th in case nothing happened. They didn't want to wait too long after the due date in case he got too big.

I was a little bummed that we were losing a little bit of the surprise but Lori said that alot of times labor comes after the induction is planned...it's sort of looking like maybe that is the case! (ahh!)

We've got contraction master up and ready to track them just to be sure (thanks for the tip!)

Glad to see you all are doing well...give everyone our best!

Contraction master is the best. :)
