8 months

Graham is now 8 months old and growing like a weed.  The biggest milestones this month were learning to sit up by himself and army crawling. Things are getting ready to get busy around here. Happy 8 months Graham Carter!

What Graham has been up to:
- Enjoying books (looking, listening and of course chewing them)
- Sitting up to play
- Pulling mommy's hair and sometimes sister's
- Eating most fruits and vegetables although you are not too fond of peas
- Sleeping thru the night most nights
- Giggling at your sister Georgia
- Teething, but still only two teeth
- Loving bath time
- You had a great first Christmas and New Years

favorite five

I know everyone has already moved on to organizing and spring, but I'm still thinking about and enjoying my Christmas gifts. I wanted to share my top five favorite gifts from 2014 with you in case you have some Christmas money to spend and need ideas of what to spend it on:)

I was in desperate need of a new winter coat. Mine was about 9 years old and needed to be retired. This Kate coat from Boden caught my eye. I have already worn this coat so much. It is perfect for any occasion. 

I have enjoyed my bkr water bottle. I have been on the hunt for a water bottle with a small opening that I won't spill all over myself when I'm drinking it and one that fits in my cup holder. I love that it is glass too. 

My sister and I both gifted one another with Erin Gates' Elements of Style book. We both have really enjoyed reading it. It's the perfect addition to any coffee table. 

Hunter boots are everywhere these days, right? I am late to jump on to this trend, but I have already made good use out of these boots. We have had some cold and wet days in NC recently and these are perfect. My mom gave me a pair of the Hunter cable knit socks which will be perfect for the winter months ahead. 

Last, but not least, for the past few years, I have received Kiehl's Creme de Corps body butter. It is AMAZING. 

What about you? Any favorite gifts?
