Cars and Bandanas

This week has been a stressful on in some ways. We recently decided to sell our car so we put it on Craigslist and Ebay last Saturday. Yea success! Houston sold it yesterday so now we have to start searching for a new one.

We also went to Ella's forth birthday party on Saturday. I can't believe I didn't get a picture of her for my post. After the party the kids got to swim for a little while. I didn't have a hat for B so we improvised, hence the bandanna.

Bennett's latest trick is pulling himself up. He hasn't done it much yet, but he's getting good fast. Actually, the first time he did it I just turned around and there he was standing up. I was shocked. I guess it's time to lower his crib mattress.

Welcome to the World Baby Griffin!

Today baby Griffin Lee George was born just before 1pm. He weighed in at 7 pounds 9 ounces and is 21 inches long. It's so amazing how fast babies grow! It seems like just days ago Bennett was that little. Misty did so well and was looking great before and after the delivery. We're so happy to have a new baby in the family. Praise God!

So, I was cleaning out a closet last week and stumbled across Houston's old cowboy hat. I decided to take a picture of Bennett wearing it. It was so big I had trouble keeping it on his head long enough to take a picture. Can't you just picture him as a bull rider? ha!

We went for a walk to the baseball field down the street on Saturday. It was such a sunny day that I thought he needed a hat and sunglasses. After searching for forever for the sunglasses I finally found them...but (big shock) they were much too small. He barely kept them on long enough for a picture. He was not happy about them at all. I think he'll need the kind with the stretchy strap that goes all around his head.

Ready to Roll

B is getting mobile these days. He loves to roll and scoot. He's pushing up onto his hands and I'm sure it won't be long until he's crawling all over the place. I had to post these pictures because he looks so happy...and because you can see his chubby arms. I also had to include a picture that I took of him sleeping last night. He got himself all cuddled in the corner of his crib and fell asleep.

He's trying to use a sippy cup. He mostly makes a mess everywhere, but I think that makes it even more fun for him.

Such a Big Boy!

We've had a busy week. I have had the privilege of helping with the ladies' day at church and spent much of the week planning and preparing for it. It was a really special day. I'm already looking forward to next year.
Anyway, while I was busy being busy Bennett has been busy getting even cuter. He had his six month appointment Thursday. He is 21 pound and ten ounces! Unfortunately, he also had an ear infection. Hopefully he will be feeling all better very soon. The first picture is from playtime with Sasha. He loves her! I'm sure he'll hit a phase when he'll be scared of her, but for now he's still fearless. The next pictures are Bennett eating a Biter Biscuit. He loves getting messy! Dr. Godfrey wants him converted to table food by his 9 month appointment so here's to the next messy three months!
