Who Knew? He's Already Two!

I know every mama says it, but I really cannot believe Graham is two! What a quick two years full of change, growth and development.

Some things about you as you enter your big third year...

  • You are huge! Weight-31.4lbs (85%), Height-36 1/2in (95%) He grew 3 inches in the last 6 months! He has lost some of that baby chub and looking more like a little boy! Kind of sad for his mama.

  • Loves trucks, trains, balls, bats, books, dirt and anything outside.

  • Loves Mama's lap which makes her very happy! Said multiple times a day "Mama, dap please."

  • Loves and listens to sister most of the time. Anna is into "teaching" G lately with phrases like "A says Ah...Ah, Ah, Ah." "Graham, now it's time for us to go play kitchen in my room." Most of the time he does what she says:) We are working on letting him decide if wants to do something or not.

  • Tries to do exactly what sister is doing, Pete and Re-Pete around here. And say what she says which comes out funny sometimes.

  • Pretty good eater most of the time. Loves fruit, cheese, pbj, chicken nuggets covered in ketchup, DESSERT!

  • Good, consistent sleeper! Sleeps 12 hours at night, 2 hour nap.

  • Still lets me rock you a little before bed at night unless you are super tired and just reach for the bed.

  • Does NOT love chaos, loud noise, unfamiliar places, etc!

  • Does NOT love bounce houses, loud birthday parties, crowded play areas, etc.

  • Is getting more brave these days, though.

  • Likes to walk in the grocery store, because that is what your sister does. Does a pretty good job of staying right with me.

  • Chatty, chatty, chatty! Although most of the talking is done at home or in the car with us. You are a little shy to talk with everyone else. Your teachers didn't know you could talk til the second month of school. But now you talk all of the time with them.

  • Some of your favorite phrases are "Wet's Go Wions" (let's go lions), "More snacks PEEZ," "Wet's go Wangers" (Rangers), "Mommy, Watch!" (and then throws a ball or swings a golf club), "Awwwight, time to go," "Wook, I'm at football payer!" and many more!

  • Loves to sing "Jesus Loves Me," "Happy birthday," "Wheels on the bus," and can sing most of the words.

  • Finally will watch a little tv-Barney, Mickey, Wonder Pets.

  • Really is an easy-going child. His teachers say he just plays and plays all day and never cries or whines.

  • The only whining is left for mommy:( But, the fits are few an far between these days and I am thankful for that!

  • Graham is a little ham at home entertaining us with is awkward dancing and singing! He loves when we laugh at him and does things over and over if we keep laughing!

  • Maybe it's the red hair and the light blue eyes or maybe some other reason I don't care to know, but everyone remembers you. Everyone at church and school knows your name even if you aren't in their class.

  • You still look like your Papa and everyone comments about it.

  • You love going to Daddy's office and watching the big football players, riding on the John Deer just being with Dad!

Graham Haggard,

I could just eat you up with a spoon right now. Since you are communicating well these days it is so fun to watch you learn and talk! I think your cautious personality is a treasure! You are beautiful to us and we are so thankful for a remarkable two years! Please cuddle with your Mama when you are ten! We love you so much!
