Four Months with Fuzzy Wuzzy

We are so blessed to have had Griffin in our family for four amazing months. I am so thankful for his sweet smile, countless cuddles, and happy giggles. I am thankful for children that truly love and cherish each other.
Thankful for a baby who is a perfect third child, so laid back and easy going. Griffin has my heart. I love holding him, bathing him, nursing him, rocking him, and checking on him each time I wake in the night.
I secretly get him out of bed sometimes and just hold him while I watch tv or play on the computer when Aaron works closing shifts. He looks so different during the day, but sleeping on my chest he looks so much like he did as a newborn. I have truly enjoyed each of my babies, but I feel like with each one I get even better at soaking it all in.
We went for his well child check up the other day. He weighed 17 lbs, 9 ozs., and it 27 inches long (one ounce less than Camden was and the same length!) He was diagnosed as being delayed on gross motor skills, since he wasn't pushing up with his hands during tummy time, or reaching for toys in front of him despite my efforts. We got a PT referral. That afternoon, he pushed up for the first time, and the next day he started reaching for toys so his PT evaluation has been put off. This little guy is just soaking life in as well as his I have learned to do over the last 27 years ;)
Camden calls him Griffin Piffin, Fuzz or Fuzzy Wuzzy, Hadley calls him Miffin, Aaron calls him G-Dubs and G-money, and I call him Griff Gruff....oh yes, and Griffin ;)
