Griffin is 4!

I can't believe my oldest is 4!! Griffin is one of the sweetest, smartest and funniest kids I have ever seen.

He has taken to being a big brother so so well, and he truly loves it. He is so helpful with Grady and has rarely gotten jealous so far. Seeing him play this role has been one of my absolute favorite joys in life.

He is so independent now. The other day I realized he can go in the kitchen, get a cup, select ice on the fridge door and get ice, then select water and fill up his cup. When did he get so self sufficient?! He can brush his teeth with real toothpaste now, and get himself completely dressed (minus tying shoes or buttoning buttons).

(This is him "preaching" the Hav, Bro, daddy and me earlier this year. How cute?!)

We took him to his first play, and he LOVED it!

This summer he completely surprised us by being all about rides at Beech Bend! He made us ride the big swings a zillion times, and the kids drop ride is his new favorite. He has a love for rides like his mommy & daddy! Yay!

Little man love loves loves to sing and dance, and he has become obsessed with those "unboxing" YouTube videos:

Something funny from this last year I don't want to forget:

  •  "Am I cut off?" & "Last call": Pretty funny things to hear in a non-drinking household eh?! Earlier this year, we started having to cut Griffin off from eating and drinking around 7:30. He quickly caught on and these are the phrases you will hear in our house nightly. Hahaha One night, Mr.Pate had just gotten home late and was offering Griffin and I some of the food he had picked up. Griffin, without skipping a beat and while perched on the arm of the couch watching a show, turns and matter-of-factly states, "Well, I'm cut off." and went back to the show. Hahaha It was so funny in person.
