Griffin Patrick

Griffin celebrated his 5th birthday a few weeks ago. I say it frequently, but it is so hard to believe how quickly time goes by. Seems like yesterday that this little guy made his fast and furious (and epidural-less) entrance into our lives!  He's kept me hopping ever since!

This picture is classic Griffin. We were having family pictures taken and the photographer took this pic of Griffin spitting off the dock. Made me smile to see it! Griffin has always been 100% boy. He loves dirt, outdoors, pretend fighting, rough-housing, spitting, peeing outside, and any other testosterone filled activity.

He continues to be such a paradox...Rough and tumble one minute; super loving and sensitive the next. He weighed in at 38 lbs, 13 oz (50%) and was 3'5" (25%) at his check up. Not sure how he made it to the 50% in weight since he is not a great eater. (Griffin still rarely eats dinner because he refuses to taste what I make...)

Griffin is in school 5 days a week this year in 4 year old preschool. He goes from 9:00-1:00.  Thankfully, he loves school - and loves his friends. It makes me smile to watch him interact with others - he always hugs his friends when he sees them. We are still contemplating if we will leave him at FBC for 1/2 day kindergarten or send him all day next year.

Griffin loves working/helping with projects; loves special assignments; asks deep questions; really thinks through different scenarios; is gentle with carsyn and rough with graham; quickly offers words of encouragement to others; spends rest time creating with legos and trio blocks; is super "into" super heroes and star wars; is a huge blessing in our lives!! Happy 5 years Buddy!
