Graham || 20 months

Graham,

Wow.  20 months and you are a MESS.  You have no fear, are stubborn and can throw a wicked fit.  You also are the best snuggler, have the cutest (mischievous) grin, and you are really smart.

You love to wrestle.  Your favorite thing to do is tackle/wrestle/rough house anyone you can - but especially your big brother.  And you guys usually do this every night.  You also love being outside.  You are so happy to just be outside playing in the dirt, on the swing set, or going for walks.  You are starting to really enjoy playing with choo choo's and cars.  And you LOVE reading books.

I haven't weighed you lately but I would guess you weight around 30 lbs and are around 34 inches tall.  You are wearing size 24 months/2T clothes and size 5 shoes.  Still in size 4 diapers but moving up to size 5 very soon.  You have 9 teeth now.  3 broke through this last month - including 2 molars.  And it looks like a few more are trying to poke through.

You are still a good eater...some meals better than others.  And you love your milk (and juice).  Some of your favorite foods include: bananas, spaghetti, pancakes, mac and cheese, hot dogs, carrots, peas, and cheese.  You constantly walk up the fridge and ask for cheese.  It's your favorite! 

Sleep...well, it depends on the day.  You go down around 7:30-8:00 and sleep until 7:30-8:00 on weekends.  During the week we have to wake you at 7 for school.  You take 1 nap and it usually for 2-3 hours.  Most nights you sleep great, all through the night. Some nights are terrible.  The last couple  have been rough.  I think it's because you have a cold.  Between that and teething you just don't seem to be feeling (or sleeping) very good.

You are saying more and more words but still do a lot of grunting and pointing.  But you are very smart and can understand everything we say.

You've blessed our family in such a huge way.  I can't believe we are creeping up on 2.  It just doesn't seem possible.  But I can't hardly remember our lives before you.  Thank you, little brother,  for all the joy you bring us every single day.

I love you, my precious baby boy!
