graham and his quirks.

he no longer eats baby food. :( makes me sad. number one, because it means he is growing up and number two, we have a TON of baby food left so what in the world do I do with it??? Yesterday for breakfast they gave him a chewy cereal bar. for lunch he had meatballs, pineapple and green beans. and then he had nilla wafers for a snack. i really just want to plop my big bootie on the floor and pitch a fit because i don't want my baby to grow up so fast. he won't even take more than one nap a day anymore. *sigh* *big ole frown* *tears welling up in eyes* this past weekend, I started to incorporate whole milk in his bottles with his formula. his middle bottle, i put just whole milk in it. he seems to be digesting it really well. looks like we may just quit his formula all together pretty soon. now I just need to work on him drinking it from his sippy cup. i think he thinks that sippy cups are just for juice and water because when I try to put his milk in there, he gets pretty upset with me.
graham has started to throw fits when he doesn't get his way. he will lay his head on the floor and gently bang it or he will rub his forehead across the floor. poor thing had carpet burns on his head when I picked him up from school yesterday. he does that if he is tired too. i don't know where in the world he learned that.

Graham and Caroline: Their First Year Together

To date, I have lost 10 pounds and 6 inches. I don't have my chart with me but I believe it's 6 inches. 10 pounds was my ultimate goal but now that i'm there, I'm gonna keep on going. I haven't been able to work out as hard as I would like to but i've still been getting my workouts in even if it's 10 - 20 minutes here and there. even though i have been eating right and drinking so much water that my eyeballs are floating, it's still been tough for me to get my energy up. i don't think my dosage of thyroid medicine is really helping so i feel like i am back at square one. I go back at the end of August for lab work again and i'm sure my levels are still off and hopefully she will up my dosage again. i'm so ready to feel normal again. but really, what is normal?
so there's the update!

you started saying maaaaa. FINALLY! after months of saying dada dada dada dada over and over and over and totally taunting me, you finally called out for maaaaa. it was music to my ears. maybe i have already blogged about this. if not, good. if so, sorry. sometimes my repeat button gets pushed...more so now since my thyroid has my memory ALL out of whack.
you are a rough and tough little boy. the first week at your new daycare, your morning teacher ms. jennifer asked me if we wrestled with you at home. we don't. but she said that you like to pin the babies down like you are in a wrestling match with them and in general, you just play aggresively. i just couldn't believe it. i mean, we have seen you pin your singing puppy down but we never thought anything about it. we have seen you play with other babies before and never have we seen you be rough. and this started to worry me. i stressed and stressed and stressed about it and lost many nights of sleep because i was so worried that you were the classroom bully and tryin to figure out why in the world you are acting this way. i finally just let it go and just thought that maybe she was just overreacting. you are a baby. you are growing and developing and you are ALL BOY. well, this past sunday we stopped in Hope to see our friends, Tabatha and Tal. their son Brady is 15 months old. so i put you down so you could play on the floor with brady. we weren't even there for 5 minutes and you were already on top of him and grabbing/smacking at his face and made the poor thing cry. after that, he was afraid to play with you. graham. graham. graham. it's not that you are doing it in a mean way. you get so excited and throw yourself on top of the babies and then you flail your arms in the air and bring them down with some serious force. you do it to mommy too. and daddy. i hope that as you grow, you will become a lot lighter with your movements. because you are a bull. a big, heavy bull. not a bully though. never.
you give me big hugs around my neck. big hugs. BIGGGGGGG HUGS. I want you to know how awesome it makes mommy feel knowing that you love me. that you need me. that you want me. gosh darn it, i love you child.
thank you for making mommy and daddy's life complete.
these next ones I just had to post cause they are so cute...graham just LOVES the water and loves bathtime and LOVES his silly daddy.
but doesn't love it when daddy tells him that bathtime is over
