Happy Friday

Well, we had a wonderful Thanksgiving and we are truly blessed with dear friends who really care about us. I hope that all of you had a great time as well. Griffin played both alone and somewhat with other children. He has this propensity towards playing with little kiddos, those much smaller than he and when he is near them he totally interacts with them face to face. It is so darn cute to watch. He will bend over in an attempt to get down to their size, look them straight in the face, and begin talking to them and often trying to hug them as well. I think that I can safely say that he is "playing" with them when attempting to do this and I believe that I can also say that this is progress as far as socialization goes.

Sorry for not having any pictures of Griffin, I think that the last one that I took was of Griffin in the snow out on our deck however, I don't have anymore because I have not been taking photos with the digital camera. I hope to remember it before we leave and take some unforgettable pics of Alaska and my little precious kiddo.

That's all for now folks, have a happy Friday and a wonderful weekend.

Mine do better with 'smaller' ones too. I suspect it's because it's less intimidating / less expectations. Best wishes

I don't know how you cope in Alaska! Or is it just a different set of 'weather' problems that we have in California?

Hi Lora and Griffin,

So glad to hear that you both had a great Thanksgiving!
I cried happy tears when I read that Griffin was interacting and even getting down to their eye level to talk to them! What a sweet little boy, he's so thoughtful! He's just like his Mommy!

Just checking in! Great to hear about Griffin socializing and interacting. THAT is truly something to be thankful for. Wanted to see how you're doing and your preparations for moving day! Can't wait to have you "down here"!

Lora, I am glad you had a good Thanksgiving. I am doing fine here, visiting family in OK. Just a reminder about maybe seeing you guys on Thursday at the pool??? I will try to check my email but haven't been able to here. I'll call you on Thursday morning.
