4 Months Old!

Sweet Graham is 4 months old today, just in time for his big baptism this weekend!  He is a real Mama's boy, but will flash his crazy happy smile at anybody who gives him a little attention.  He is just starting to occasionally roll from his stomach to back, but is very strong with pushing himself up and lifting his head. He loves to push up on his legs to stand and bounce around.  On the ground, he can rotate himself around in a full 360 degrees to check out his surroundings.  He has a very firm grip, generally on my hair or glasses.  We can already tell he is going to be an active little guy because at all times his arms and legs like to be in motion.  He has started to give some good chuckles and has one of the sweetest coo's I've ever heard. We're currently not getting much sleep overnight in this house, but that will hopefully change and I figure it can't get much worse!

Weight: 14 pounds 7 ounces (25th-50th percentile)
Height: 26 1/4 inches (85th percentile)
Head Circumference: 16 3/4 inches (75th percentile)

Hello Summer!!

Yard Work & Play

Every summer I get the itch to move and it clearly correlates to my desire for a back yard.  I get serious envy whenever we go to a friend or family members who have a yard, especially now seeing how much Olivia loves just running free and entertaining herself.
But we'll make do with the little front yard we have for now.

Let's Go Fly A Kite!

Years ago I went with my sister and her kids to the Mayor Daley Kite Festival at Montrose Harbor and I loved it.  Going today with my own kids was the perfect day and a wonderful start to our summer of fun. We are definitely making this a yearly tradition!

Here is Graham in the adorable sweater Grandma Pat saved from when Daddy was a baby.   

Stickers Anyone?

Liv loves stickers, especially putting them all over herself.

15 Weeks Old

Such a handsome little fella in his first pair of jeans.  
Good thing he's so cute considering he isn't too keen on sleeping very long at night these days!

We love you Saoirse!

Whoa Excavator!

This huge excavator is next door to our house!  They tore down the neighbor's garage today and next is the house. Liv is obsessed and it's perfect timing because she has been loving all the construction happening all around the city.  Now we have our own real construction site next door.  
She is thrilled.  I am not.

New Friend!

We got to meet our newest friend yesterday, Madelyn Maureen Nichols! She is the beautiful baby sister to Liv's friend J.J.  Graham is psyched to have a playmate around his age.  (There are many more in the months to come due to the baby boom occurring with my high school girlfriends!)
