Griffin is now 3 1/2 and so much fun! Yes, he is still extremely active and constantly on the go, but he is much easier to manage! He will actually be stationary long enough to build blocks or legos or play dinosaurs. He loves to be outside - his favorite pastime in the outdoors is digging! We have several small holes around our "swing set", compliments of Griffin. I am still amazed at his love for bugs/birds/squirrels. I know that is a common obsession of many little boys, but Griffin sits perfectly still for long amounts of time just observing them - kind of funny for such an active little guy.
We've made huge strides in the "eating dinner" department, thanks to Brent. (he took on a battle that I wasn't up for fighting!) Griffin actually eats dinner every night now! He's still funny about foods though - you have to force the first bite but then he realizes he likes it so he eats the rest.
Griffin has been playing soccer this spring and likes the "act" of soccer - kicking, blocking, running, etc...but he doesn't love the actual game. I think that he doesn't understand the concept yet - during his last game, he kept crying and telling me that "the orange guys are being mean to me!" (in his mind - why would anyone kick the ball away from me?!)
Griffin loves loves loves school this year. His teachers have been wonderful and he loves his classmates. I think he probably thrives with the constant stimulation and activities that preschool offers.
I am proud of our little man and all that he is learning and becoming. He is our best mannered child and caught on quickly to the yes mam/sir, please/thank you, etc. He is super lovey and tells me multiple times a day that he loves me and has a big kiss for me. It has been so fun to watch him become his own person!
