He's A Man ;)

Love getting back to the normalcy of everyday life and getting a huge laugh when your son gets shedded dog hair on him and says 'look Mom and Dad I have my first chest hair, I look like a man now'. Have to say I haven't laughed that hard in awhile.

Words: Relaxing In His Hammock.

Griffin has a couple of friends over and they have been in the pool. This is a conversation I just overheard as the other two boys are still in the pool and Griffin isn't.

C : Griffin, where are you?

Griffin: In my hammock

C: oh

Griffin: Yep, I'm in my hammock.


I love how much he likes to relax in his hammock. HaHa
