Finally! One Month!

I finally found the camera cord! Sorry for so much delay! Griffin turned one month old on October 16. We had his one month appointment and he weighed 10 pounds (50th percentile), was 22.75 inches long (95th percentile) and his head was 14.75 inches (50th percentile). Brendan was a quarter inch taller and had a quarter inch bigger head at the same age, so that was pretty comparable. But, he was 12 ounces heavier! That probably had to do with the fact that he ate ALL night and Griffin actually gets some sleep :)

The past 5 days, he has consistently slept 4.5 to 5 hours the first stretch of the night and 3-4 the second. It has been great. We did have to get him on Prevacid this week because he is having bad spit up issues and was really fussy after eating. I think it is already helping.

Tim and I went to see the Rangers in the World Series on Saturday. Of course, it's the one day they lost! But, we still had fun.

Brendan has been LOVING school. He enjoys going so muchand hates when he has to leave. Today he's dressing in his Halloween costume - a firefighter - for their Fall Festival. Last month, he and Tim were playing outside and Shiner was running alongside Brendan and knocked him over. Brendan fell onto some rocks along our fence and busted the back of his head open. He had to get staples in his head :( It was so sad and scary but he was a trooper and did great.

Here's some pictures from the past month:

First Bath. He LOVES his baths! Getting undressed for them...not so much.

Supporting the team :)

Brendan loves to hold Griffin's hand when they are next to eachother or in the car.


Hanging out in his mamaRoo swing. This is actually what he sleeps in right now because he loves it so much.

One Month!

Oh man, WHAT is that?!

Hanging out in the bouncer, looking at the animals.

Fall Festival in our neighborhood

Playing with his bath bubble machine

Meeting the cow and seeing the Fort Worth Fire Truck at Chick-Fil-A. He loves both of them!

His head with the staples :(

I'll be better about updating this month, if any of y'all are still reading!

I'm still reading and have been looking so forward to pics of Griffin!!! He is adorable and I can tell that Big Brother really likes him a lot!! What is it with these boys busting the back of their heads....Ty busted his a couple of weeks ago, although it didn't have to have stitches like sweet Brendan. You have such a precious family!! Hopefully we can all come over and see Mr. Griffin soon. Take care and keep posting...Hugs.

I'm still here and so excited to finally see some pictures of your new addition! I hope Brendans head is doing SO much better!
I love that Brendan loves holding Griffins Hand! I hope Ella is the same way with our newest one!
