16 Months Old!

Grahamie is 16 months old today and as sweet & crazy as ever. A few current examples...
 "Sweet" Graham:
  • Gives big smacking kisses and blows kisses.
  • Running embraces and hugs.
  • Leans his head into you for cuddles.
  • Blows bubbles in the bathtub.
  • Politely uses a fork and loves to drink from cups without lids.
  • Sings, dances and taps his feet as soon as he hears music.
 "Crazy" Graham:
  • Aggressively pulls hair and laughs hysterically.
  • Slaps people across the face when they are holding him.
  • Climbs up on all furniture and stands dangerously on the edge.
  • Throws food (or really anything) with a manic squeal.
  • Immediately removes and throws his shoes into the trunk of the car.
Our little man is really starting to understand so much and getting more words and sounds.  (He too is benefitting from Liv's speech therapy as he frequently says the words that her therapist is trying to get her to say).  This is such a fun age to watch him explore the world and express his opinions. We're looking forward to a fun and crazy summer ahead!

Help Us Saint Joseph

We are calling on both God above and the gods of real estate to help sell our condo! It's been listed for three weeks and let's just say things haven't been going that great. So Liv and I buried a St Joseph statute and we prayed as a family. Liv really wants a pink house, so hopefully we can make her dreams come true and sell this place first!

Happy Mother's Day

My children didn't want to cooperate for a photo with their mama. Oh well.

The annual family photos. Everybody is getting so big!  
Eight kids under the age of nine.
 And to my favorite mom of all, my very own.
Happy Mother's Day!

There was lots of lovin' going around at our sleepover last night.  Liv obsessed with Saoirse. Saoirse obsessed with Graham and Graham completely showing off for our guest Saoirse.

Build A Bear

We took Saoirse on a special outing in honor of her upcoming 4th birthday.  The girls had so much fun and were totally adorable together with their new bears.
Meet "Princess Polly" and "Alice."
