9 months old!

Today Graham has officially been out of me longer then he was inside of me. How did 9 months already go by?
He is growing so fast!! We had his 9 month well care visit today and he weighs 21.5 lbs and is 31.5 inches long. The nurse said he is tall which is good to hear. I've been nervous that he caught my short gene, and what boy wants to be 5'2"?

I can't believe how quickly he will be a one year old. It seems wierd that I could have a baby that old. He is such a cutie and we have loved the last 9 months!

We're baaaaaack

So the trip to Indiana was fun. Getting there wasn't much fun since Graham cried 8 out of the 10 hours it took us to get there. Once we were there and he was out of the car things were great. He loved all the attention he got from my parents and my brother's family. Here he is playing catch with my dad. He didn't completely understand the concept and mostly just held onto the ball.

I made a cake for my sister in celebration of her high school graduation. I saw this cake design in Family Fun Magazine and couldn't wait to try it out. It turned out really well I thought and it was super easy to make.

Here are my parents and sister after the ceremony.
Here is a picture of a tattoo on some girl that was attending the graduation. It isn't the best picture because I didn't know the girl and had to stand as close as I could to her and pretend I was taking a picture of someone else. It was slightly awkward but I'm glad I got this shot. Her tattoo was of a blowdryer blowdrying a butterfly!!! What in the world??
My niece Isabelle loves Graham and wanted him all to herself the whole time. Anytime someone else would try and take him she would yell "that's my Graham!" It was pretty adorable. She fed him, helped change his diapers and played with him the entire time we were up there. It was kind of nice. I wish she had come home with us. Our own personal 5 year old nanny. Nothing wrong with a little child labor.

We made the trip up to Indiana with Elliot's parents and on the way back home we stopped in Nashville and celebrated Bill's birthday by eating take out mexican food in a hotel room. Could there be a better birthday? Don't judge his happiness level on the face he is making, he always looks like that.
While we were in Nashville I also got to go to a Carrie Underwood concert. It was a really good concert. I really only know the songs of hers that are on the radio but it was still fun to hear her sing some of her other ones that I had never heard. She sang "How Great Thou Art" which was fantastic. Unfourtanetely these are the best pictures I could get.

Now that we know Graham doesn't like long car rides very much we've decided to test the waters on long plane trips and are leaving for Oregon this Saturday. That's a 5 hour non stop plane ride. Think he'll scream the whole way? I'm sure our fellow plane travelers will think his screaming is just so adorable right?

Road trip

The last few days Graham has been teething so he's super grumpy and whiney. We decided the best thing to do would be to stick him in a car and drive for 10 hours. The fun begins tomorrow morning. Wish us luck.
