Graham Joseph is 15 Months Old!!!

I decided I would do a post all about Graham after his fifteen month check-up, but it's becoming clear that I should have done a few more before this, since I'm pretty sure I forgot lots of cute things!
Grahammers is our squishy, for sure!  We want to squeeze him all the time!  He is really happy-go-lucky 98% of his life, which sure makes that 2% that he's not happy heartbreaking for this mama :(  He LOVES playing with Jackson...and any other kids!  He especially loves books, balls, music and anything he's not supposed to play with ;)  He spends quite a lot of time rearranging everyones shoes, and he has started trying to put my flip flops on his chubby little feet!!!  He is crazy fast climbing up the stairs, and he always seems so proud of himself!  If he gets upstairs unnoticed, he can be found in our master bathroom turning on the faucet, taking clothes out of the drawers and taking them to the laundry room, in Jackson's room playing, or in Mimi's room if it's open just hanging out since he is rarely in there.  Graham hangs out a lot in the little blue chair--he will take books, toys, drinks over and just relax :)  He gets super excited when we put on his shoes, because he knows he's getting to wander around somewhere--most likely outside!  He LOVES playing outside with our friends in the neighborhood--he especially loves the Cozy Coupe and the little lawnmower.
Graham is a pretty spectacular sleeper!  He goes to bed at 6:30 and sleeps until 6:30 or 7:00 in the mornings.  He naps around 9 and 1:30 for about an hour and a half to two hours.  At naptime, I still snuggle him to sleep, but at bedtime he goes to sleep after some milk, a few stories and a short snuggle.  SUCCESS!!!
Graham has discovered his love of MILK!  I weaned him at the very beginning of August, and it really went well.  First I cut out the naptime feedings, then the bedtime one, and then the morning one.  He really hasn't looked back--phew!  He is so stinkin' cute when he is sitting in his chair watching me bring his milk--his little legs kick, and he shakes his hands, and he has a huge smile!  He is still a really good eater, but he has his picky moments especially when he's teething.  He LOVES slices of American cheese, pretty much all fruit, pancakes, hot dogs, chicken, green beans, and pouches.
 He's not saying a ton.  He does say, "Dada," and "Mama," and he growls A LOT!  LOL  He knows what to do with a phone, a remote, a comb, and socks.  He's doing really well staying with babysitters and friends, which makes  my heart happy--he knows he has lots of people who love him!
Graham's fifteenth month stats:
Height: 30 1/2 inches (25th %ile)
Weight: 26 lbs (87th %ile)
Head Circumference: 19 inches (86th %ile)
