3 months

Well hello 3 month old smiley Graham. You are growing so fast. We love you dearly, especially your big sister who reminds anyone that watches you not to 'drop you on the floor'. I promise this has never happened! You continue to be the sweetest baby boy!

What Graham has been up to:
-Weighing in around 12 lbs. 
- Sleeping 5-7 hours straight most nights
-Loving the activity mat and laughing at yourself in the mirror
-The swing is your favorite
-Loving bath time
-You continue to despise the car seat - hopefully this will change:)
-You can almost turn over from your back. It won't be long now.

georgia's frozen party

We, along with every other parent of a little girl, threw a Frozen birthday party this year. This was Georgia's one request for the past several months and honestly we were excited and happy to oblige. 

It was a very simple Frozen party filled with snow cones, Frozen character coloring sheets, fruit loop necklace making and a snowball toss - which turned into throwing:)! We even had a visit from Queen Elsa who dusted the little girl's cheeks with glitter and painted their nails. What a fun celebration it was!

Before I discarded the #3 balloon, I decided to take a few pictures of Georgia with it. I just love images of kids with balloons. These turned out pretty great and make for a special way to remember her age.

we blinked

Happy 3rd Birthday to our little Georgia. The past year was filled with lots of growth and change for Georgia which she handled so well. She had many new experiences and really blossomed into a little girl. She is smart (maybe too smart), energetic, full of life, loving, independent, adventurous and fearless.

We blinked and she turned 3! 

First day of preschool. 

First trip to Disney World.

Found out she was going to be a big sister. 

Saw her first movie in the theatre. Frozen, of course.

Said goodbye to her beloved paci. 

Potty trained...calls for a fiesta. 

Loves to dance in her "bootiful dresses"

Loves to cook, especially when she can "qwack the eggs".

Enjoyed her first big snow. 

Loves to swing. 

First trip to Riverbanks Zoo. 

First pedicure. 

Became a big sister. 

Beautiful baby, beautiful child
Gentle and maybe just a little bit wild
When I see your face, I know that its true
No one anyplace, is as beautiful as you
Beautiful as you, bring to my life miracles untold.

happy 2 months

Happy 2 Months Graham. You continue to be a great baby. Over the past month you have gained lots of weight which is good. I think you weigh around 10lbs now.  You enjoy short increments of tummy time and love looking at the animals hanging from your activity mat. You are one smiley boy!

What Graham has been up to:
-Traveled to Tweetsie Railroad in Boone
- Went on your first beach trip
-Met your great grandparents (Papa and Grandma Faye)
- Slept 6 1/2 hours straight one night (you give a consistent 3-4 hour stretch most nights)

Happy 2 Months!

lets back up

 I want to back up for just a moment to remember all the memories made over the past month. It has flown by, but has been filled with fun times. 

Our blueberries came in! We had enough to make blueberry pancakes even after one little girl snacked on most of them!

Georgia finished up first year of preschool. It was a wonderful year. She made lots of friends and really has grown in many ways. She especially loved music class and gymnastics. Her favorite thing on the playground was the swing, with a close second being the monkey bars! Paul and I could not be more proud of her accomplishments this past year! The preschool had an end of year program with a railroad theme. The program was precious. 

 Cousin Leighton graduated and will be heading to big school next year!

 Baby Graham.

This girl has a love for horses. 

One thing I love about summer is grilled food! Paul grilled tilapia and vegetable packets one night and they were yummy. 

Georgia had her first pedicure and loved it. Her nail color choice was of course pink!

Our hydrangea bushes are starting to bloom. 

We celebrated Father's Day. So thankful for a husband that loves our children so well. 

We've had a great start to summer so far! I hope you have too!

happy 1 month

Graham hit the 1 month mark on Saturday! Having a boy has been very different in many ways. We feel blessed to be able to experience bringing up both a girl and boy.  Overall, Graham is a very good baby. He sleeps and eats pretty well and gives us lots of sweet smiles already.

Happy 1 month baby Graham! We, especially big sister Georgia, love you very much!
