So, on Tuesday Griffin got his 4 month shots, poor meatball! They poked him in the legs and he was not happy about it! He didn't feel all that great Tuesday or Wednesday , infact he woke up both nights around 3:00 and kept me up the rest of the night- hopefully he will sleep all night long tonight. I just don't know how some moms do it.
I mean I love the meatball with all my heart don't get me wrong,but I love my sleep too. I have a friend that has twins, and I think they are about 7 months old, can you imagine 2 babies the same age, how hard that must be. WOW, one is hard enough. I tip my hat to her!
Sometimes when the meatball is fussy or wakes up in the middle of the night it really makes me wonder am I really ready to add another one to our pot of spaghetti???? I am just not sure..... I think for now the one meatball will have to do. I mean afterall, he is a pretty tasty meatball :) all 15 pounds of him :)
Well, keep your fingers crossed that he feels better and that he sleeps tonight. OH yeah, for those of you with babies, I think the meatball is in the early stages of teething, so if you have any advice to help me sooth and calm him, that would be great. Until next time......

Can you believe that the meatball is going to be 4 months old on Tuesday- I can't!!!! The time flies by-FAST. I mean look at the pictures above- he looks like a completely different baby from when he was first born. I remember when I first brought him home how scared and nervous I was to take care of a baby- I mean I was responsible for this little being- that is a pretty scary thing!!! And now it is like okay, I can do this, I can do this with more than one meatball- just not yet!!! The husband and my mom say they are both ready for another meatball but I say if they want to carry him for me for 9 months okay, otherwise my body still needs a break :) We will discuss the issue again in a few months. I mean afterall, I need to spend some time just me and the meatball before we introduce another meatball into the clan.
So the meatball is growing up. He is already 26 inches long (he was 21 inches at birth) and he weighs 14.2 pounds (he weighed 8.9 at birth)- wow, pretty soon he is going to be walking and talking. I remember when he was just a few weeks old and he really didn't do anything, he couldn't even hold his head up and now he holds it up like its nobodies business. In about 2 months he will probably be sitting up on his own and then soon after that be crawling everywhere and he will want to be independent so I need to take advantage of this precious time we have together now and just hold him and love on him all day long- not a bad gig if I do say so myself :)
So I just wanted to fill everyone in on the meatball. Until next time.....

So the Meatball got baptized this past weekend and he was just way too cute for words. All his grandparents came up for the event and a good time was had by all. So now Griffin is a little catholic boy :) I will post more pics from the weekend later on this week. Until next time.....

Yep, the meatball is a yogi baby. Today was the first class of Itsy Bitsy Baby Yoga and he really enjoyed it! I kid you not, this kid was laughing and smiling most of the time. We learned some baby yoga poses, sang some songs, cuddled on the babies and it was really enjoyable for both of us. We still have 5 more classes to attend so anything can change but lets hope that he sticks with it and will continue to enjoy it. Until next time......

Is it just me...Or does anyone else find themselves just a tad bit attracted to Justin Timberlake these days?
I would have to agree with him when he says he's bringing sexy back, b/c holla, JT looks pretty good! Cameron better watch out for AP (me) if you know what I mean!
Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone agreed with me on the matter?
Until next time....

So this past weekend the Post family had a fun filled time. On Saturday we took the meatball back to downtown Boston, b/c I had a dentist appointment- YUCK! We took Griffin out to lunch at The Parish Cafe on Boylston Street and at the table next to us the brothers from the local TV show the Phantom Gourmet were there-Pretty cool. After lunch we went to the park and played and then I had my appointment ( I still have a cavity free mouth!). While I was at my appointment Jason took the meatball to see the ducks and swans at the park. Then they took a walk around Beacon Hill- a very fancy area of Boston- and the meatball told daddy that he liked it there. He must get his great taste from me :)
Today, Sunday, we had no plans so we decided to drive to Maine-yep Maine, you read correctly. We took Griffin to have his first lobster so it was only fitting that we dress him in his lobster outfit since we were in Maine and they are obviously famous for lobster. After lunch we went for a drive along the coast and stopped at the beach and took some pics. After that we went to some outlet stores in Maine and spent some of daddy's $$$$$ on the meatball. So all in all the meatball had a fun filled weekend. This upcoming weekend he gets baptized so I will post pics next week. Until next time....

Britney Spears didn't make it to the hospital yesterday, despite reports on E!. However, she did manage to make a run for the border! The very pregnant brit brit went to pick up some Taco Bell. No Small Fry yet! I can't wait to see what her little girl is going to look like, b/c I do actually think Sean Preston is adorable despite K-FAG being the dad!

Hello! So today me and Griffin went to the mall to meet his friend Adam and Adam's mom for lunch. Adam is one month older than Griffin so they get along rather well. Griffin slept through lunch but was awake while we walked the mall. We went into Babystyle and can I tell you about the cute halloween costumes!! For those of you such as baby Connor, baby Kendall and Gavin- whos' babies are a little bit older than Griffin, you shoud check them out! For only $24 dollars- they were too cute for words. I think I am going to have to go back and get him one and take some pictures of him dressed up. They had sharks, goldfish, octopuses, caterpillars , butterflies, peas in a pod- soo cute!!!!! Anyway, other than that, not too much happening today, just wanted to let you know about the costumes at babystyle. The website is babystyle.com
Until next time...

Here's a few pictures from this weekend. We took Griffin to the Boston Common for the day and thought you may enjoy some the pictures. The Boston Common is a huge park in downtown Boston, it would be considered like Central Park in NY for us here. We took Griffin Shopping on Newbury street ( a street with lots of fancy shopping) and Charles Street ( more shopping) and out to lunch and then the park. All in all it was a fun filled day! Until next time....

So today me and Jason took Griffin to isismaternity.com (this is where he will be taking his baby yoga classes) and bought the meatloaf some new toys. We went in to browse but ended up with a bagful of goodies. Who would have ever thought they would have so many accessories for babies. The blue chair that he is in is called the "bumbo" and it is supposed to help babies learn to sit up and it is all the rage among new moms. Well for 50 bucks I hope it is going to get him into an ivy league school as well! And they must have seen us coming b/c as we were paying they asked us if we had the "winkle". What the hell is a winkle???? The winkle is the toy he has in the first picture and according to the sales girl it is the new must have baby toy, so of course we got it for the meatloaf, how could we deprive our son of the winkle, I mean what would his friends think! When all is said and done- are these toys really going to make a huge difference in his life, I doubt it, but it sure is fun to buy baby toys! I can't wait to see what we will end up buying him tomorrow :)
