Forrest Griffiths, 8 weeks old


This last Saturday, May 9th, was Forrest's 8 week milestone...wow! For 8 weeks he's been in our lives, eating, growing, sleeping, playing, and now more than ever smiling! As an 8 week old infant he's living a pretty good life...and looking more and more like a little boy...ALREADY!
His FAVORITE thing to do is this...

And the challenge now is getting him to sleep outside the swing...he seems addicted to it. Nice for us parents as we know he can be awake, happy, or fast asleep in it. But the swing is not attached to our car for trips, nor do we want to be...


And right behind that is his baby play mat...we add anything and everything that can hang on the hooks for him to bat at, coo at, and work on the hand eye coordination.


Besides the multitude of smiles he adorns us with, sticking out his tongue at us is the newest skill just in the last week...he seems to get a kick out of anyone of us sticking it back out at him...

Alex and I are pretty good about toting him along wherever we go...hence the family portrait on Split Rock, a local excellent hike and great view.
He's not always stoked to be carried in the sling or baby carrier....but the majority of the time he seems pretty relaxed....

Oh my goodness, he looks so much like Alex! What a little cutie pie! At least he's a boy; as my sister constantly tells me, Bodi looks so much like Daniel...lol

He's too cute! How sweet that he sits in his swing and looks out the window. I love that he's soooo long in there that he pulls his legs up in a little ball.

It's fun to have a babies so close in age. I love checking in and seeing that our boys are doing pretty much the same things right now. Love it! And love your too cute family too!
