Six Months Old!

Holy half-a-year old!  The past six months have flown by and we've been blessed with a joyful little guy. Graham spends the majority of his days just smiling away and taking in his crazy surroundings. He goes with the flow, which I feel extremely fortunate about.  He's taking a good 2-3 naps a day and we're getting better and better overnight (fingers crossed that the days of sleeping through the night consistently are nearby).  Graham loves rice cereal and is starting to accept more other foods like avocados, sweet potatoes, apples and bananas. 
 
Weight: 16 lbs 13 oz ( 25th-50th percentile)
Height: 26 3/4 inches (75th-85th percentile)
Head Circumference: 17 3/8 inches  (75th percentile)
 Graham is on the move! He's starting to push up and get his belly off the floor and often uses his legs braced against something to push onto all fours. He has totally mastered scooting himself backwards and rotating around in circles on the ground.  It amazes me how far he can get from the places I originally put him down. I am going to have my hands full once he really gets crawling!

Happy 7th Birthday Finn!

Happy 7th Birthday Finn T! 
You're becoming such a wonderful little man and we love seeing you excel in school and all your sports.  Plus, your Olympics party followed by the dance party was totally awesome. We love you!

Finally Complete!

I finally got everything up on the walls in Graham's nursery.  I think it turned out pretty cute.  My DIY art project over his crib will do for now until I figure out something I like more.  
 

Happy 2nd Birthday Lil Sam!


I don't know many two year olds who get to celebrate their birthdays in Rome!  Happy 2nd Birthday Sam. 
We love you!

Square Roots Fest

 Liv seriously LOVED the bongo drums.
 Sadly, Daddy couldn't really remember how to play the violin despite his years of lessons.
Rocking out to Little Miss Ann.

Weekend with My Besties

Caitlin and Dave Pearson came to visit from New York this weekend.  Olivia and Graham totally adored our visitors and we had a great time brunching, dancing at street fests and lounging around the house.  I feel so lucky to have such amazing friends who care so much about my little ones.

Beating the Heat

It's way too hot to be outside, so we got creative inside today!
 
 Lobster prints with our hands and feet
 
 Cloud dough!
Just 8 cups of flour mixed with 1 cup baby oil creates a moldable sand-like dough.
$5 for hours of fun

Bobble head

Sam's father's day gift arrived. His very own personalized bobble head. I think his employees will enjoy this on his desk.
