1st Turkey Day!

Watching football and naptime after all that turkey!

Sweet baby boy and his 1st Thanksgiving!

We enjoyed our first Thanksgiving with Griffin. We spent the afternoon with the family in Humble then the evening in Pearland with the Reed clan. He did so well, but he definitely slept his best that night - too much going on!

We concluded our busy weekend with football. Hans has to have G on his lap as he watches Game Day then as he watched (and prayed!) that OSU beat OU. No such luck - but, he is happy Tech is off to the Cotton Bowl. As for A&M...well...we won't go there! Maybe next year??

Happy Holidays to all of you... we will be celebrating Griffin's 6 week birthday this Monday. Time flies when you are having fun!

Football, parties, family, and more!

Lil' Griffin is getting so big and is still as sweet as ever. Hans and I say everyday how good he is - you better just be ready to feed him or he will let you know he wants his dinner NOW! We have been having fun watching Texas Tech. I never thought I'd say that, but seeing Hans so excited makes me excited! Since my football teams are stinking it up this year, I had to root for someone, and it is an Aggie law that I just can't root for Texas (sorry to my Longhorn friends!). We are hoping for a victory over OU and a possible trip to the National Championship. If they go, Hans has a chance to go as well! We decided Griffin is the good luck charm this year!

My sister's son, Keaton, turned one, and we had his party at our house. Elmo took over the Reed house! I really enjoyed seeing Keaton so excited with all his gifts. My sweet (and precious and BIG) nephew, Gage, came to celebrate. We were missing Gunar in this pic - with 4 grandsons, imagine how busy Mi-Maw is!
My uncle Charles Hardy (one of G's namesakes!) came to visit while in Houston for business. Griffin enjoyed meeting him, and I loved showing off my little guy.

I know they all say they grow so fast, and I believe it! I want him to stay this small forever - he fits perfectly on our chests (we spoil him already) :) I go back to work in 3 weeks. Not sure how I feel about it. While I miss my students so much, I will miss my special time with the G man. I treasure every second I spend with him and Hans.

First trip to Humble!

Last weekend, we went to Humble to see Mi-Maw and Aunt Jenn! Mi-Maw was so excited to have Griffin visit her house - Keaton was there, too! Jenn and little Sawyer were in town from Nashville, and we enjoyed seeing them. We can't wait for their next trip during Christmas!

We are still loving every second with G, but we sure do miss our sleep!

Growing and growing!!

Griffin had his first doctor's appointment today, and he is on target - in fact, he is growing so fast. He is currently past his birth weight (weighs 8 pounds, 12 ounces) and grew a 1/2 inch! Not sure he liked the doctor visit too much...he is pretty exhausted now after all the attention there!

My sister came over this past Monday to practice her new photography hobby on Lil G. These pictures are so sweet - she is so talented, and I am blessed to have my own little photographer for Griffin. I will attach a couple here, but I am saving the cutest ones for later...look for announcements soon!

Hans goes out of town for a bit this week, so Mi-Maw to the rescue! She comes in on Wed. to hang out with us. Have I told you how lucky I am to have such an amazing family? They are just a phone call away and can't get enough of our newest addition. Say prayers that Hans has a safe trip - we will miss Daddy while he is gone!

And, with all our visitors and appointments, we even got out to vote! Go do so if you haven't already :) Until next time...
