Graham and I have taken to pastoral pursuits. Ok- not exactly. We got a community garden plot. And while it's a month until we can plant (until night time temps fall below 90 degrees), we are already having dreams of what great things we are going to do with this small plot of land. The first step will be to plow under the prior inhabitant's garden-as shown here.
It's official- Graham has given up the bottle. Not by choice, mind you, but we figured that it was about time for him to move on. He does great with sippies and straws now and was kind of using them as a comfort item rather than a necessary way to get drink and food. He seems to have adjusted well. We had only one bad day where he requested them and has been fine ever since. It is a great treat for us as well, as it is one step closer to Graham's and our independence from baby paraphernelia.

When he can resist skipping straight to eating the crayons, Graham is creating some crayon art of his own these days. The greatest other challenge (than preventing Graham from bellying up to the Crayola buffet) is to isolate the art to paper. Graham is eager to redecorate our home.

Until the August recess, Graham and I had been going to Shake, Rattle, and Roll at the library each week. We also had some fun at the library beforehand. Check out the little man- here listening to an audiobook. His latest favorite books are: "The River" by Nick Pollard and "Diggers", which is an Usborne lift and learn book. Andy and I are going to get his some new ones today though, because, we have agreed, that if we have to read either of these books today for the 100th time, we are going to lose our minds.
