It’s been another jam packed week and I am behind again. Sunday is supposed to be my coupons/update website night, but lately seems like it spills into Monday (and Tuesday). I went to the beach alone over the weekend! Well, not totally alone obviously, but baby free. Allison and I went to Atlantic Beach for Kelly’s bachelorette weekend. We had a great time relaxing at the pool (just sitting, not swimming in the ice cold water), walking on the beach and enjoying a nice dinner on the water. Oh, and a little alcohol wasn’t too bad either. Of course it only took one jello shot to get me buzzing since I haven’t had alcohol in what seems like years. It was a short trip since Allison and I both needed to get home to our little guys. It was really nice to have a girls weekend, but I did miss Graham a lot. Of course when I got home he was whining and crying for me which made me wonder why I was in such a rush to get home….. This whining phase is already driving me crazy. He whines all the time for me and now breaks out into a full cry if I ignore the whining. Then he gets himself all worked up and it just isn’t worth it to me to ignore it.
I think it is going to be time to cut Graham’s hair soon! So I am really debating on trying to snip a bit myself or take him somewhere to have it done. I don’t really want to pay $10 or more to trim up such a small amount of hair, but something tell me doing it myself isn’t going to work out so well. He is getting pretty good with cruising around now and will sometimes let go a bit when walking around. He is also moving around furniture pretty well now. Today he rolled across the room, but he didn’t realize what he was doing or that he had moved himself because he was busy having a fit since I wouldn’t pick him up. I don’t think he has any understanding that rolling is a form of transportation. He is too set on walking now. Still only two teeth and I managed to get a picture of them this week.
Eating is messy!
Graham loves to “dance” now and usually gets excited when I turn on music. He really just bounces and he will dance sitting or standing. I don’t have a video yet of him doing the standing dance so here is the sitting dance.
Last night after his bath he realized he could talk into the cup to make his voice louder. It was so cute.
Casey loves to push Graham over when he is sitting on the bed. At first he used this as a way to teach him how to keep his balance and keep himself up, but now Graham thinks it is a game and throws himself back when Casey pushes him. You can see him tilt his head up and look back as he “falls”.
