12 Months Old!

My little man is somehow already one today.  The past year seems to have gone by in a speedy blur (probably in part to G only starting to really sleep through the night a month ago), but we've enjoyed every minute of having Graham in our lives.  His belly laughs, mischievous giggles and loving attacks bring smiles to our faces on a daily basis. He's a wonderful little brother and Liv has really taken on the role of bossy older sister quite seamlessly.
Graham is pretty tough and loves nothing more than a good wrestle. His walking is getting more sturdy by the day. It's hard to believe that he'll be all over the park this spring!  He can say "mama" and "da" and bonks his head when you ask where his head is.  When you ask for hugs, he leans his whole body into you and sweetly nuzzles his head in your chest.
Likes: looking at himself in the mirror, pushing cars/garbage cans around the house, wrestling stuffed animals, standing in the bathtub, his lovies

Dislikes: getting his nose wiped or nailed trimmed, wearing gloves

Favorite foods: noodles, cheese, yogurt melts, beans, goldfish

Favorite toys: the little green guitar and beach ball

Favorite book: "Brown Bear, Brown Bear"

Teeth: still just the bottom two!  The top four are still just sitting waiting to break through.

Height: 30 3/8 inches (85th percentile)
Weight: 22 pounds 12 ounces (75th percentile)
Head Circumference: 18 5/8 inches (75th percentile)

It's Official

Graham is officially a walking boy. He went from going 4-5 steps at a time to now walking across rooms and down halls. He's very proud of himself, as are we.

Welcome to Graham Street!

We celebrated our sweet little boy's 1st birthday with a Sesame Street party, aka Graham Street.  It was like he knew the party was for him and he walked all over the house, talked like crazy and smiled ear to ear.   Obviously this party was brought to you by the letter "G" and number "1."
Happy birthday week G!

O & G : My Failed Photo Shoot

No great picture of my littles together, but at least they do love cuddling and wrestling each other.

Grocery shopping will never be the same...

It finally happened. I have always ignored the little carts at Trader Joes, but today Liv insisted on walking and having her own cart. After two near tips and lots of "excuse me," the shopping was completed in almost double the time.


(Under an inch, but we'll take it!)

Birthday Week!

Graham's first birthday is one week from today, so let the birthday festivities begin!! The birthday ring has been brought out...
 And party prep has started for his Sesame themed "Graham Street" birthday party. 
I am pretty impressed by my pom-pom characters.
Fun fun fun.   Excited to celebrate my sweet little guy who I cannot believe is already one.

It took me a few failed attempts to finally get the right flubber recipe...
Mix 3/4 cup warm water, 1 cup Elmer glue and food coloring. Separately mix 2 tsp. Borax with 1/2 cup warm water to dissolve.  Mix together and flubber away!!

Graham's Baby Steps

He's mastered about four steps so far. But he's definitely getting the hang of it.
