Graham { 8 Months}

Better late than never right? My reason for taking so long to post this one is a little sad.  I didn't really want to have to buy new white onesies for his picture, so I asked around but it seemed no one else had a white one either. But alas, I bought some so now you can have his update.:)

This month was a big one for the ol' Graham Bam. He got his second tooth. He was left with someone other than Grandma and Grandpa, for longer than just one overnight.  We were gone a whole week.  I feel like he got so big in that one week.  He was officially crawling, like on all fours when we got back.  He had also mastered eating puffs, yogurt melts and mum's.  No more gagging!  With that new development, he also got to try waffle, and peas, and some tortilla.  He is getting so big. 

He also started clapping. I thought it was a fluke one night, but then he kept doing it.  It's the cutest.  He also has officially moved out of his baby car seat and into a big boy seat, now sits in a high chair at restaurants, and the shopping cart at the store.  He had a blast sitting with his big brother in their " Car"
The biggest  thing that happened to my little Grammy this month is that he started school.  That's right people, I put him in school one day a week.  He is going to the same school Dylan is, so I have five whole hours on Tuesday all to myself.  It will be so good for him.  I am hoping to miss out on the mommy attachment that we got with Dylan around this age.  You know, the one where they cry when they can't see you, and no one can do anything about it?  Yeah, trying to minimize that.

He is such a pull up machine too.  We had to lower his crib to the lowest setting because he started pulling up in there and climbing on to his bumper which gave him another couple of inches so he could get his elbows above the rail.  I am almost positive that he would never have been able to pull himself out, but heck, with this child I just never know.

I am so thankful that he is such an easy baby.  Adam is hesitant for a third because the first two were so easy.  He is pretty sure the next will be a terror.  I am pretty sure they are just great babies because we are great parents.  Right?  Ok, maybe not.  Graham hardly ever cries and he has even done really well staying out well past his bedtime this month.  We had some late nights, like 10 PM nights.  He was a champ and such a happy guy.  He doesn't mind breaking routine which was always something I tried to do with Dylan, change it up again so they can be flexible.  Dylan is probably one of the most flexible kids I know, so I'm happy that Graham is following in his footsteps. 
One last thing, I'm so happy that my boys play together now.  Granted Graham isn't walking yet, but he can certainly chase down Dylan.  They love each other and it just makes my heart so happy.  Hopefully it will stay like that. * fingers crossed*
