6 months old!

Must I not forget...the biggest milestone yet...Graham's half birthday! Everything is in the mouth these days, signs and paper included. Happy 1/2 b-day big man! I love you!

At last...paradise!

We just returned from paradise...St. Marteen. The family went down with Bogey, Marmee, Uncle Britt, Aunt Renee, Anna and Thomas. We had an absolute blast and we were all wondering why we only booked a 4 night stay here. We certainly did not want to leave and were trying to come up with some creative occupations/services to justify taking up residence on the island.

This was not only Graham's first trip to the beach but his first plane ride as well. It wasn't too long of a trip, only 3-4 hours and he did awesome. Thank god I have a sleeper on my side! There were several other babies/toddlers on our flight but G Dubb was by far the best passenger!

Graham really enjoyed some pool least I think so. If you know him or have ever seen him in action, all he wants to do is suck his fingers. So naturally, he just laid back in his float with his shades and bucket hat on...taking it all in with his finger in his mouth. Uncle Britt dubbed him "Fingers"...

After hittin the pool out back, next up was the beach....not a fan. I'm sure it will just come with time but the waves were a little scary for G Dubb. So instead we put him in the tent for a little snooze.

But check out that was gorgeous!!

One of Uncle Britt's favorite hobbies is flying planes, so we went to a famous bar that over looks the ocean where you can watch all the jets and planes fly right over you. Check out the video!

We went to the market one day and bought 2 big mahi mahi filets to cook up for the next couple of nights. They were delicious and fresh...if only G Dubb could have tasted it he would have been a fish fan for life!

Most importantly Graham got to spend some quality time with those he doesn't see a whole lot. I think his favorite was by far cousin Anna. She was great with him! Future babysitter...

And of course, what a beautiful place to capture pics of my beautiful family...

Signing's 5:00 somewhere right?

Sweet Boy

How can you resist this?

The greatest invention since...the Miracle Blanket

That's right folks...something that tops or comes pretty darn close to my lifesaver, the Miracle Blanket. Have you guessed it yet? Here's a hint..

The EXERSAUCER...the toy of all toys, and with such a powerful name. I mean who in their right mind would NOT want to play in this thing. It's fully loaded, jammed packed with gators that teach you the 123's & ABC's, singing lizards, followed up with a trip around the world where you get to listen to culturally relevant tunes. And yes...that's my son sucking his fingers in the midst of all this excitement. He learned that one from a pro:)

5 Months Old!!

Yep, we're a little late on this post as well. Graham turned 5 months old last week! Every month just gets better and better as his skills continue to develop. He's well on his way to sitting up unassisted! Way to go G Dubb! Love you little booger!

At Last...

Graham's been awfully interested in what mommy has been eating lately so we went for it over the weekend and introduced him to rice cereal. He wasn't a big fan of it of course and as of yet hasn't really gotten used to it but he'll come's that Clifford in him!!

Graham's Baptism

We just finished a very special weekend as Graham Woodward was baptised into the Episcopal Church. It was a wonderful weekend despite the weather, we had family in town to celebrate with us on this joyous occasion. Graham along with 7 other babies were baptised on Sunday, February 19th...a day that we'll always remember. John and I were especially tickled that Reverend Marty who married us, also administered Graham's baptism. Everyone gathered for the 11:15 service and then headed to Mimi's house for a delicious lunch. Thank you to everyone who made this event very special for our new family, we will never forget it! Graham is blessed to have so much love surrounding him from all over the country...we couldn't ask for anything more!
