BAD Mommy!!!

OMG so Graham has been oh so busy I have not posted in almost 2 MONTHS!!! 2 MONTHS PEOPLE... SO many things have happened since my last post. Also I totally forgot to take his 7 month picture, I am so sad bc I had been doing SO well & because I can't turn back time & take his picture.

The last couple of months have FLOWn by & I know it will only get busier. I love every single second with Graham & my absolute fav is when Keith is here with us too. I absolutely fall in love all over again with both of my guys when I see them together. Graham's entire body gets excited when daddy gets home. It is the sweetest thing! As much as I am enjoying each & every new thing I have had a couple of real moments lately...

First, there was a moment when I was giving Graham his morning bath when I truly looked at him. The way you look at your baby when you first bring them home with you... I cried because I saw a little boy not an infant. ( I am BEYOND blessed that he is healthy & growing but it's hard to know he will never be this size again. I literally soak up every moment everyday... I have NO idea how some people say they don't like little bitty babies??? I have LOVED it all!)

Second, I came across a newborn diaper today & almost freaked out.... he seriously wore those???? They are TINY!!! It's amazing how a diaper can be so cute. We are in a 4 now... he def needs it for the length.

Finally, since my sister had Cape 2 months after Graham we have been able to hand down a TON ( you know me) of clothes. What I like to dress my little guy, so shoot me. Anyway... she gave me back a couple of sack full of clothes back & I HAD to go through every single outfit. I remember each moment I got to put some of my favorite clothes on him & how precious he was & still is to us. Oh and for those people who say girls are more fun to dress, I LOVE dressing my little boy!

Anyway here are a few things Graham is up to since my last post...

-Crawling SUPER fast now! He has been going since he turned 6 months & has NOT slowed down.
-Cruising around the furniture & turning to go to another object
-He has been in his "big boy" car seat facing backward for 2 months now
-Feeding himself "puffs"
- Mastered the sippy cup
-Signing more in sign language during mealtime
- We taught him how to clear his throat when you do
- Says dada & now associates it with Keith
- Bye Bye or Bubba not sure... we call him bubba ALL the time
- Knows the command "no" & listens 95% of the time
- Now has 3 big teeth & 2 more broke through the skin this week for 5 total
- He gives head "bumps" when you say bump to him
- Gives kisses to me when I get him from his afternoon nap
-Eating Cereal morning & evening along with lunch & dinner
-Sleeps from 8:30-8:15
-takes 2, 2 hour naps

I am not kidding when I say he makes NO fuss when we put him down for bed at night or nap time. SUPER SUPER easy to put down, he LOVES his sleep & has since 6 weeks! I LOVE mine too & I love Babywise for this gift.

On another note we made a trip to Dallas & saw Keith's family. We also went to the state fair & the Tech/Baylor game. It was a SUPER packed weekend but we had a blast & Graham did awesome. So glad we were able to spend some family & cousin time together with the kiddos. Graham and one of his other cousins Lawson are 2 days a part... so needless to say Lawson is crawling now too & the next time we are all together we are going to be SUPER busy! I'll have to post pictures later because I seriously forgot my camera! I was SAD!

Finally, HALLOWEEN!!!

Keith & I both really LOVE Halloween. We have been looking forward to dressing up our little guy & having a fun get together. It was a BLAST & the party went off with a bang! Let me just take a minute to say I literally could NOT have done this without my AMAZING husband. He was awesome & such a help to me that day. It was just us two making everything, decorating everything, and we still had little Graham at home with us. In the end I was SO proud of our little family for pulling it all together. Thanks babe... you truly are my partner & I love you SO much. Thanks for everything you do for us & with us everyday! Here are a few pictures from the night... (Graham was a bat, but he HATED the head part... it was really cute though).

Sorry for the lack of posts lately!

It is really nice to read your updates and see the pictures. We can't believe how big Graham is getting and that 8 months have already flown by. The house looked fantastic; you both did a great job decorating. Definitely miss that about having Keith around - Halloween was always his favorite holiday. Love the new app - Face Time and look forward to "talking" to you again soon!!!! Love you all better :-) Bop-E and Gigi
