Graham || 18 months

Dear Graham,

You are 18 months old and you are really coming into your own.  You are quite the little wild man.  Already mischievous and hilarious and quirky and so darn cute I can hardly stand it.  Seriously, between your dark hair and blue eyes and your little grin...I'm putty!

You are a hefty little guy.  You are wearing some 18 months clothes and some 24 month clothes.  Size 4 diaper and size 5 shoe.  You weigh around 28 lbs. and are around 33 inches tall.  You still only have 7 teeth -- 4 on top and 3 on bottom.

You are not a picky eater.  You eat pretty much anything.  Some of your favorites include bananas, carrots, meatloaf, cheese sticks, cinnamon rolls, green beans, hot dogs...and really this could turn into a long list because there isn't much you don't like.  You also love your milk....and have recently started drinking some juice, which you love.  You also really love sharing everything with Cooper.

I don't want to jinx anything but you've started sleeping good again.  We had a rocky month or so but you seem to be back on track.  You go to bed around 8pm and wake up around 7am.  You take 1 nap after lunch, usually for 2-3 hours.  2 at school but usually 3 at home.

You are starting to say more and more words.  Almost too many to count.  You also sign more, please and thank you.  You seem to understand pretty much everything we say and do what we ask you to (when you want...ha).  You give us the sweetest mouth and slobbery....the best!

You love being outside, just like your big brother.  You two are starting to play together more and it's so sweet.  But you guys still have a lot to learn about sharing.  But you want to do everything Sawyer does -- being 1.5 yrs younger doesn't stop are brave.  You love reading books, climbing on the couch, and playing doctor.  You also love hiding things...anything.  We've found stuff in our shoes, in vases, even stuff in the air vent.  You are sneaky.  And you have no problem letting us know when you aren't happy about something!

We are so thankful for a healthy, spunky boy.  You bring all of us so much joy.
Bubba, we love you lots and lots and lots!
