15 month Baby G

My baby boy had his 15 month well-visit at the pediatrician last week and I figured I'd give you an update.
Weight: 22 pd 5 oz. (25th percentile)
Height: 31.5 inches (60th percentile)
Words(not all of these are super clear, but we definitely know what he's saying): Dada, momma, bubba, car, cat, what's that, bug, milk, thank you, wa wa(water), book, go, more, hi, bye bye.

Graham is changing so much right now. His speech is starting to develop and his understanding is unbelievable to me. This week, I've really noticed his ability to follow commands. I can ask him to go into certain rooms of the house, and he goes exactly where I've asked. I know that I've already been through this once, but it is so different with Graham. Why? Because Graham is different. I thought it wouldn't be as exciting, but so far, I am still in awe watching a new little person develop. 

 Graham is such a blessing in my life. In a short list, he is loud, sweet, exhausting, funny, and assertive. I'm excited to help shape his strong-willed self into the little boy God wants him to be with each of his bold characteristics. Here's a few pictures of my sweet boy at 15 months.

Graham is obsessed with going outside...I cannot accentuate enough how excited I am for summer 2011.
 I know this picture is of terrible quality. I don't care. Graham's bed head was amazing this particular day, and I'm glad it is documented. His middle name, Jeffrey, is not a misnomer at all when it comes to nappy morning hair. Sorry, Dad, it's true.
 Some days, when momma feels like having a life, naps get taken in the car. Take that, Babywise :)
 This is a very common scene in my home. It makes me crazy. I can't decide whether I love it or hate it. Probably both. Usually Daddy is involved as well.
 Helping me rake leaves. More like destroying piles I've made, but I'll have plenty of years of untouched leaf piles. Whatever.
 Don't splash water out of the tub? How am I suppose to have fun then?
 Ever so often, if Graham wakes up before 7 o'clock and doesn't quite get enough sleep, I'll let him come cozy up to me in my bed. This day, he fell back asleep and I got to hold him for an hour straight without squirming. It was a nice present for me. I loved it. It kind of made me miss our morning feedings since Graham was weaned last month. He's growing up and I can't stop it.
 I see this face a lot and I thought I'd share it with you. Aren't I nice?
 Watching his brother's thanksgiving play. He really enjoyed it.
 Graham is slightly obsessed with his big brother. I hope it always stays that way.
 Parker helped me spike his hair...then I realized his hair was too long...kinda scary looking.
 Ahhh, that's better.
 I don't know...he's pretty cute all styled up. Anyway, though he tries vigorously to make me crazy, that's my boy and I love him. A lot.
