Happy Halloween!


9 Months Old!

Sweet Graham is 9 months old and a sheer delight. He's a happy little charmer who loves to flirt for attention. He's a crawling machine, pulling up steadily on everything, cruising around furniture and pretty sturdy standing when you hold onto his fingers.  He's definitely got an aggressive side as he wrestles stuffed animals and doesn't mind when Liv tackles him over and instead tries to pull her hair in retaliation.  Just two weeks ago, he's finally started to sleep through the night (or at least make it until 5am!).   And the boy has an appetite-- he'll pretty much eat anything in sight. He seems over the idea of pureed baby food and much prefers things like grilled cheese and pasta already.

Happy Halloween and 9 months to my baby boy!

We got Boo'd!! It was very exciting. There was a loud knock on the back door but when we opened it - nobody was there but a pumpkin filled with goodies! We did hear people yelling "BOO" and Liv claims she saw Ellie, B and Colin... But I swear I didn't see anyone!


Graham has a fantastic smooshed-face smile these days  (and it shows off his two little teeth very nicely)!

Cousin Lovin'

 We got to have the Giles kids stay with us for part of this weekend and Olivia was in heaven.  Movies, popcorn, crafts, soccer and more.  Good times.
