Griffin's 6 year well check

Griffin had his well check today and here are his stats:
Weight: 48lbs (66th percentile)
Height: 43.6 inches (17th percentile)

Dr. Kim input Griffin's, Ryan's and my height and said he is estimated to be about 5'8" plus or minus 2 inches.  I think it will be cool to look back on this one day to see how he really turns out. 
He is such a good kid.  Granted he tests my limits daily, but he truly is an amazing boy.  I can not believe he starts kindergarten this year.  I know he is ready now and am so glad we waited that extra year to send him.  He is this totally amazing athlete too.  He catches on to anything and really does excel.  He is super smart, a rule follower, a little OCD and a total stud!  He stole my heart 6 years ago and continues to do so every day. 

Here are his answers to our yearly questions....

Griffin's 6th Birthday Party

Griffin chose a baseball theme for his 6th birthday party.  We held it at D-Bat, an indoor batting case facility.  I had a lot of fun theme-ing this one out (it's my thang).  The kids really enjoyed it.  They just played a big game of wiffle ball and had an absolute blast.

He decided on a cookie cake (which was a HUGE hit)
