all about graham

Special request from Amy. And a few videos for Ryan.

Graham is the best baby ever! He says to tell all the mamas out there that they should be jealous. Hey, I didn't say it. He did.

At almost 7 months old, Little G...

Sits all by himself now. Perhaps his huge cloth diaper helps prop him up.

Loves to watch us stack things up so that he can knock them down. Sometimes he uses his hands. Sometimes he uses his head.

Favorite songs are "The Itsy Bitsy Spider" and "Monkeys Jumping on the Bed."

Uses a little cough to fake laugh. We love it.

Doesn't exactly babble. It's more like growling and squealing. Our little monster.

Is FINALLY learning how to swallow food. Favorite? Gerber Carrots.

Loves to chew on a toothbrush.

Gets to hang out with Charlie and Max whenever Grandma Chris watches him. I'm pretty sure he wants to be just like them when he grows up.

Can get up on his hands and knees and rock back and forth. We're pretty sure the crawling will start soon.

Scoots backwards and rotates in circles on the floor.

Flirts with girls 16 years his senior. Is clueless around girls his age.

Thinks he can move forward if he pretends he's Superman flying on the floor. It never works.

Drives his dad crazy when he refuses to take a nap.

Has slept thru the night 3 times now. 7pm to 7am.

Hangs out in his crib happily playing with his pacifier when he wakes up in the morning, so we're never sure exactly how long he has been up before we hear him complaining.

Likes when I hold him up high so he can swat at the skulls on his mobile.

Is getting quite good at blowing snot bubbles. Snots, snots, everywhere.

Has learned how to bang on the piano keys. Next up: Mozart.

Drinks Mexican coca-cola by the bottle. Okay, not really.

I see him all day during the week and still can't get enough of him. Yesterday was the first time I noticed him burrow his head into his arms when tired, I'm glad you got it on tape.

He's so stinkin' cute! And I love his beautiful eyes.

Chris said...

I smiled the entire time I watched these videos. Then I watched them again. And, I can verify it's all true about Graham, since I just got to hang out with him all day thursday. Grandchildren are a delight!

Ashley said...

He is the most perfect little size right now! So soft and squeezable and PERFECT! He makes me so excited to have a baby.

Julianne said...

So cute! My little boys loved watching the videos with me too.

Amy Carter said...

thanks molly!! that's just what i was hoping for. he's so cute. and it definitely looks like he's going to be crawling soon.

he totally looks like superman when he puts his arms back. so funny.

very jealous that he slept TWELVE hours straight. luca finally slept eight straight hours last night, and that was a miracle.

we have to get the babies together again soon.

Awww. He's super cute. I was about to tell you to warn me next time its naked butt time on the internet in case he rolled over and his girlfriend caught a glimpse. But then I remembered he's not rolling from his tummy to his back, or is he?

Julia Wade said...

jona and i are puddles on the floor right now. just so you know.

your baby is so stinkin' adorable it's ridiculous. cannot wait to see you guys.

Julie Laughlin said...

Kerri said...

adorable! love his eyes, and his perfect head and beautiful skin and hair.

Packet of Seeds said...

You should consider signing him up with a modeling agency. He has the most adorable BLUE eyes ever. And I love his round little head. What a fun age.

Ashley C. said...

Aw, he's getting so big! I need to come hand out's been too long!

Veronica Cleverly said...

Savannah says her Graham sounds like a puppy. She would know, she is a pro. Often she is mistaken for a puppy herself.

Sally Teeple said...

I love his high-pitched squeal! Hilarious!

The last picture of him with the Coke bottles should be in the running to go in his senior yearbook...
