Shot Day!

Griffin had his 8-week check up today, do you think he looks a little scared? He did great and is growing well. He had 5 immunizations and a well check up. He is 8lb. 13 oz. at almost 9 weeks old. Only has a litte digestion trouble which is curing with special predigested formula, and a bad diaper rash caused by the constant stomach irritation which is being cleared up. Other than all that... he is doing great at the moment! We see the hematologist tomorrow on results from the transfusion two weeks back. Dad joined us today for this appointment so he could meet Dr. Julie Konowitz, Carter & Griffin's pediatrician at JFK Pediatrics. She is amazing! Thanks to Ann and Heidi for her referral last year!

Rain, Rain Go Away! We need indoor fun!

Whoever thought of this place is ingenius! "A Latte Fun!" An indoor playground with 20 foot bounce house slides, trampolines, foam pit, dress-ups, games, arts -n-crafts, and more... to top it off, if you kiddo is over four you don't have to be in the room, there are kid sitters who are paid to make your kid have the best day ever, while you relax in a "Starbucks" style atmosphere watching on through the window~ Needless to say we will be visiting this place a lot of those hot summer days or when it is on a 9-day rain run again!

Mother's Day Afternoon Tea at The Chesterfield

It is now a tradition that the daughter takes the mother's to Afternoon High Tea. This year we went to The Chesterfield in Palm Beach. It is a historic English Luxury Hotel, so high tea is right up their alley and ours. We indulged in tea sandwiches, homemade hot cranberry scones, and delicious desserts, oh-yeah - we even had tea!
Funny we all wore a shade of orange without even planning it~
Whose that at the Mother's Day outing? How did he sneak in? He dressed up for the occassion and was a pretty good boy. The grannies really loved on him that day, they took turns!

Weekend at Nana & Papas

Griffin had enough a few weeks ago, he under went a blood transfusion to help his red blood cells develop, and he was sick of all of the doctor's visits we have had to go to in the last 6 weeks. Well, what cures that....Nana & Papas house of course! The boys and I spent four days in Palm Beach Gardens last week because Brett wasn't feeling well and he didn't want us to catch anything. We were spoiled of course with yummy homemade cooking, swimming in the pool, goodies to take home, ice cream before bed, and a little mother-daughter time that was due at the mall. Papa gladly took over when we needed him too with Griffin, but Nana is the main squeeze when it comes to the littlest grandbaby!

Starting to suck his thumb! oh boy!
Griffin's first bath at Nana's house, she was so excited to get everything ready, I thought I was going to laugh myself silly! Have at it!Big Brother always is a HUGE help!

All clean! My jammies are still a little too big, can you tell?
Big Brother Carter is the BEST!!!

White Night ~ Boca Raton Resort & Club

We attended White Night at the Club this past week. It was a lot of fun. Carter really cut it up on the dance floor during the Zumba Technique Demo.
