Another Trip Around the Sun, Graham. Happy 2nd Birthday!

Happy Birthday to my sweet little Graham! Today you are TWO!

It has been a crazy year that has flew by in the blink of an eye, but then when I look back at these photos from a year ago, it seems like forever has past. Time is funny like that when its both quick and slow at the same time.

This year was a big year for my little Graham – and right in front of me he has gone from a baby, to a little boy and THAT is what makes me weepy. I love baby cuddles and the sweet baby smell and baby wearing! But I love seeing my little boys grow, learn and develop – being at home with them and seeing everything through their eyes is the greatest gift.

This year, Graham learned to walk, and now he’s a running, skipping, jumping, scooting manic who loves to race and go FAST! {Just like his big brother.}

This year Graham stopped nursing. We made it to about 14 months {which was about the same with Brooks} and he still had breastmilk from my sweet stash for another month or so. Proud of that and for us, weaning was easy both times – Forget a baby moon, I’m all about the post nursing trip! Woohoo!

This year, Graham learned to talk! Brooks started speaking way earlier, and I assumed it would be the same with G, but I think he enjoyed listening and learning to B talk {who goes a mile a minute!} so Graham wasn’t in much of a rush. But the past few months he went from a few words, to all the words. I love hearing his little voice tell me whats going on, its the sweetest.

This year, Graham moved into a room with Brooks. The two share a room and it’s been really great – they love it and I love having the two of them in there together, looking out for one another. It’s the beginning of an amazing bond I know they will have for the rest of their life.

Graham is very passionate about everything. He loves to play with Brooks {and bestie, Noah!}, he loves his favorite stuffed buddies {Teddy + Neigh – who is actually Bullseye from Toy Story} and he’s obsessed with orange juice. Brooks & Graham’s favorite music of the moment is anything N*Sync {so proud!} Graham is my sweet little love who even though he’s a big kid, is still my little bitty babe who loves to cuddle with mama and be carried all around. But at the same time, he’s very independent, loves to do everything on his own and is fearless {again, just like big bro.}

Graham full of spirit, loves to draw & paint and mostly love to get his way {or else we all feel the wrath of Gam} BUT his big brother is the best at getting him all crazy & excited but also calming him down too.

I love you, little G so much, I can’t wait for the years ahead to see you grow. You are a light in our lives, my little love, my sweet little bep. Gam, Gammin, Gammers, G, GOB, little baby sweets – we have all the names for you. {These are the nice ones – Ha!}

We love your highs and a hug from mom or dad can usually cheer you from any low. Your big eyes are full of wonder and you give the tightest little hugs along with the sweetest little kisses. Can’t imagine life without you in it, you are a beautiful soul

Happy Birthday Graham – here’s to another trip around the sun!

Too infinity & Beyond! xo – mom

Here are way too many pictures of Graham from the past year, but this is my little online memory book, so they all have to be here! And for a look back along memory lane with G, check out these posts:
