Graham is 3 and 1/2!!!!

Graham is 3 and ½ years old today (what?). It feels like we just celebrated his birthday! I thought this would be a good time to catch you up on what this little guy’s been up to. I do so many posts about Molly these days and its quite time for one about Graham!

Graham insists on dressing himself. Usually when he wakes up he turns on the light, takes off his jammies, gets dressed, and starts looking at books. All without making a sound. What a big boy!

Graham likes all kinds of foods and is generally not a picky eater. Some of his favorites are eggs, macaroni and cheese, grilled cheese sandwich, pancakes, and baked chicken. He will generally not eat any soup or anything covered in sauce.

I don’t currently know Graham’s height and weight, but he is very tall! He is wearing size 4T clothes, but I don’t know how much longer he will be. He is in size 11 shoes.

Graham is talking so well, it’s hard to believe now that he ever had any speech issues. He’s able to say anything that he wants to express. Sometimes things come out really funny like when he says, “mmm, that sounds delicious!” Cracks me up!

Graham loves to play by himself or with other kids. He especially likes to play outside (especially now that we have our super cool playground set up AND a new trampoline!).

Graham likes his TV time and some of his favorite shows are Mighty Machines, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, Jake and the Neverland Pirates, and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse (thanks to netflix). He loves just about any Disney movie, and we have a few!

We have been doing 3 year old pre-k with our friends the Vigils (sadly they are about to go on furlough and we will be going at it alone). Graham loves it! His favorite thing is music time. This kid learns great through music! His least favorite is coloring or really anything fine motor.

Graham knows all his ABCs and most of the sounds they make. He also knows all his colors and shapes and recognizes some numbers. He sure does love to learn!

Graham does not take naps anymore, but he has a quiet “rest time” in his room every day. He plays quietly and is really good. He has no trouble going to bed (usually around 7:30) and sleeps till 7:30 or later. We continue to be thankful that he is such a good sleeper!

We are incredibly proud of this boy!! And although we’ve learned that the preschool years and adding a sibling can introduce some challenging discipline issues, we are loving every minute that God has granted us. I can’t wait to see what the next 6 months holds for him!
