Baby's firsts

It's taken me forever to post but that's probably due to my new job as a stay at home mama. Graham is now 7 months old! Since my last post he has done lots of new tricks and had many sweet firsts. He started eating baby food and drinking from a sippy cup (sort of) and LOVES his food. He now weighs 21 pounds and it shows. He is wearing some clothes that are 18 months and we are now trying finger foods which he isn't too sure about. I'm sure once he gets the hang of it he will eat it up too!

Trying Puffs but always spits them out!

We have come a long way with our motor skills as well. He rolled over and can sit up unassisted. He is great at grasping too.  So much so that he takes his pacifier out every time it's offered now. I guess we are done with that! 

We had so much fun celebrating all his first major holidays! For Halloween we were a couple of scuba divers but the shark may have gotten him. He had a fun time with family on Thanksgiving and Christmas was the best ever! He liked meeting Santa and ripping the paper best of all. 

We also took a trip to NC in December to surprise his Aunt Katie! He was so excited to see her and her entire family. We went to her dad's house for a little get together and the doctor who delivered him surprised us all with an appearance! He spent the night with the Statler family and did great on his first airplane ride. 

These first 7 months have been better than we ever imagined. Graham you are so much fun and we are beyond proud of you! Can't wait to see what's in store next. My guess is the next post may have a little boy crawling around all over the place.

4 Months of Pure Joy

Graham turned four months yesterday. It's hard believe it's been that long and then again it also feels like he's always been with us. I wake him up at 7:00 am every morning and can't wait to see his smiling face. He is such a joy and the time we get to spend with him is so special to us both. We are still in awe at the gift we've been given. Being parents is better than we ever expected and I can't wait to have more! More on that next year. ;)

A lot has happened since I last posted. He now weighs 17 pounds (official weigh in will be Monday at his doctor's appointment), he dropped his swaddle and is rocking his sleep sack (I may have cried) and he had his first haircut! He gets another round of shots on Monday and we can't wait to see if his pediatrician will allow him to start on baby food and/or cereal. We are thinking it might be a no since he still has trouble with holding his head up on his own but we are hopeful. This kid LOVES to eat as you can tell!

He also loves playing his piano, singing, books, loud toys with lights, stroller rides, bath, naps, milk, his pacifier, his changing table in the pack n play, fans and overhead lights. He doesn't like tummy time (although tolerating it a little more now), diaper changes after naps and strangers. We are planning on starting him in the church nursery this Sunday to see how he does. He's a mama's boy so we need to get him used to other people and at four months we feel it's time. Speaking of time, it's going WAY TOO FAST! Slow down buddy. We waited 10 years for you and we are trying to soak up every second.
