...and he's ONE!

My baby boy is one year old! We celebrated with a fun swimming party.

Enjoy the pictures from this special time!

he was less than interested in blowing out his own candle!

I chose cupcakes as the theme:-)

The 'cupcake' eating started out innocently enough...

...but he decided to rub his head.

We ended the fun times with a bath in the pool (he, he). He had fun in the water and even enjoyed 'hanging poolside' with his new baby cousin Ciana.

Thanks to all who came and celebrated with us-we missed those of you who couldn't be there with us;-)

His one year check up is tomorrow-so I'll add to this post with his stats after the visit;-)

***Update with stats***

Weight 17 pounds 5 oz
Length 28 inches (finally on the growth charts in around the 5th%tile!!!)

It looks like Griffin is following in Owen's smaller footsteps...Owen was 16 pounds and 26 inches at a year (and he was born 2 months early, unlike Griffin who doesn't get any age adjustment on growth curves;-). So, Griffin is not on the charts for weight, but if you compare his height vs weight, he is doing fine and he doesn't look skinny. I am for sure that he has the least amount of hair of any of my other boys at one! The MD mentioned growth hormones which I'm not interested in for a whole slew of reasons...Owen and Griffin are who they are-thank you Lord for giving me (us) these amazing boys!
