Funny Pics

It amazes me how fast such a little person can make such a big mess. After breakfast this morning, I was cleaning up the kitchen and decided to go ahead and cook Graham's lunch (macaroni and cheese with ground beef, spinach, and corn). I had to get some flour out of the pantry and obviously forgot to close the door. As I was stirring the cheese sauce, which probably took 2 minutes, I looked over to find Graham inside the pantry throwing everything out. His curiousity cracks me up and I absolutely love watching him learn new things everyday. He is now walking from room to room and loves to walk down to the mailbox each day ... even though it takes about 5 minutes each way because he loves to bend over and pick up EVERY leaf, stick, rock, etc. God sure has blessed us with one precious baby boy!!
I went in to check on Graham before I went to bed the other night and found him like this :)

Look Who's Walking

Graham has been letting go and taking steps on his own all week long. I don't know if he's trying to show me his personality or not, but he doesn't like to walk on his own if I'm holding on to him and then let go. He only seems to want to take steps when he's holding on to something ... it's like he only wants to do it on his own terms and when he's ready. Babies are so funny!! Oh, and yes, he is wearing Christmas pjs ... I desperately need to do laundry :)

Girls Trip to Altanta

Last weekend, my mom took my sisters-in-law and me on a fun girls trip to Atlanta!! We all arrived on Thursday and had a mexican dinner with margaritas all around to kick off the kid-free weekend :) We spent all day Friday at the Scott Antique market and all got some goodies for our new homes and finished the day at Bacchanalia for dinner, which we all stated was in our top 5 best restaurants ever. On Saturday we indulged in some spa treatments at our hotel spa and went shopping in the afternoon. It truly was an amazing weekend, not just to get away from the duties of motherhood, but to be with the women I love most and just have fun with them. I am SO blessed!!!!

Beach Bum

Do I look like my Daddy, or what?!?!?
We had a great trip to Destin, FL this past week and had tons of fun with Kevin's parents and his sister's family. I was a bit concerned that it was going to be tough hanging out on the beach with Graham, but he LOVED it!! He barely ate any sand and loved crawling all over the beach and in and out of the water. And he really loved his shovel and pail. The weather rained quite a bit, but it cooled the temperatures, so it was very pleasant. Kevin and I also got to go out to dinner and see Mamma Mia :) Thanks Pops and Gigi for a wonderful trip!!
