griffin {ten months}

Griffin :: 10 months old

I think the lying down pictures are long over for you baby boy. I am actually surprised we made it to ten months. And this month I prefer your sitting up picture anyway…

…because this is the best I could get when you were lying down. Let’s just say you were not amused with my picture taking games.

You were much more interested in playing trucks and cows and sticks. I’m lucky that you even stayed on the quilt for five seconds.

If you weren’t scooting off the quilt, you were trying to climb up my chair.

You are definitely starting to get a mind of your own. You want to do what you want, when you want. And as long as I don’t interfere with your plans, you are happy. 🙂


This has been a big month for you. All of a sudden you are army crawling, going from your tummy to sitting up, sitting up in your crib, pulling yourself up on everything…but just to your knees, you are waving and clapping all the time,  your top two teeth came in and I think you are working on even more. You pretty much snub your nose at baby food…you like the real stuff now. You are wanting to do everything your big brother is doing. You want to play tractors with him. You want to be outside when he is outside. You want to watch movies with him. And you really like to get in his crib when he wakes up. You really like your brother a lot…unless he is trying to wrestle with you. Sorry…we are working on that. Most of the time he likes you a lot too. He is definitely starting to talk for you, so you’d better find your little voice so you can stand up for yourself! You should say “mama” first! And just in case I start wondering where my little baby went, you remind me all the time that you are “sooo big”. I’m not sure if I am a fan of that, but I sure love you a lot sweet boy!

Love, Mama

  • Amanda - I’m laughing because I took Gavin’s pictures today, and the lying down pictures did not go well at all!!! So yes, I’m shocked too that he lasted till 10 months! He’s such a cutie and I can’t wait to see him do his new tricks!ReplyCancel

  • Jane - Oh my!! How is he 10 months already!?! That is almost a YEAR!! He absolutely adorable and such a precious little guy!! What a blessing! And I love the picture of him climbing up your chair; his smile is so beautiful!

  • Janet - How I have enjoyed watching your little family grow – where does time go? Sending greetings from a chilly South Africa!ReplyCancel

  • Michelle from Australia - Oh Jess! He is getting so big so quickly. Which probably means that I am getting old very quickly but I prefer not to think of that 🙂 I love the pictures. I hope Griffin appreciates them when he’s older.ReplyCancel
