Dressed in our Easter Best

Ohhh I love California Spring. Yesterday was perfectly pleasant.
Even though Graham has had the worst cold yet and I'm pretty sure he is teething.
(Notice all the drool?)

Jake was home and we had a wonderful Easter dinner outside with friends. 
So grateful for my little family. Graham is getting ridiculously cuter every day. 
If you haven't seen this short video "Because of Him" do watch it. 
We have so many blessings in our life because of Christ. 

- my husband gets to fly a massive plane to crazy places
- I get to raise a beautiful little healthy boy 
- we worship freely in the best country on earth

Easter is quickly becoming my favorite holiday.

A day in the life of a five-almost-six month old.

I cannot believe its been six months.
Everyone says that, right? But really.
That seems like a long time, feels like one too.

Graham man STILL won't take a damn pacifier.
At least now he's starting to hold on to it on his own and chew on it.
He can roll from front to back and straighten his arms while on tummy.
We've started solids, his first was rice cereal followed by prunes, sweet potatoes, and carrots.
He can sit up on his own, still working on balancing himself fully.
He loves to scratch/feel things and he grabs everrryyyythingggg.
His hair has grown back in and looks blonde sometimes and auburn-y others.
He's got his daddy's cowlick that's impossible to manage.
He loves to gurgle and squeal, and it's the most adorable thing in the world.
His sleep habits aren't the best. Hoping to fix that soon.

Over all motherhood is getting easier and a lot more fun.
Don't get me wrong it's still more difficult that I ever imagined...
but he's worth it.
