9 months...a little late!

I'm way behind, I know.  I thought July would an easy month...boy was I wrong!  We've been busy, and it doesn't slow down until September for us....bummer!  But, nonetheless, here are Graham's 9 month stats...just a few weeks late!  
 Gosh, isn't he cute!?!?  I mean, I know I'm biased, but come on, he's cute.  His little face, cheeks, laugh, giggle, grin (I could go on and on) get me every single time.  He's just beyond precious.  And he's so fun! 
 He weighed in at a whopping 25 pounds and 30.75 inches.  We're STILL on the charts, people.  This is a big deal for a Burns baby!  We're in the 99th percentile....but it's still on the chart!  Graham, you're gonna be big like your daddy!  You're sleeping through the night like a champ and I can't thank you enough for this.  We put you down by 8 every night and you're up usually by 7 every morning.  Your schedule is like clock work.  Wake up, eat and play for 2 hours, nap, eat and play for 2 hours, longer nap, eat and play for 4-5 hours and then the night time routine--bath, book, bottle, bed. 
 You've got 5 teeth and one more on it's way.  You're eating more solid foods every day.  You love crackers, blue berries, bananas, grapes, strawberries, puffs, crunchies, yogurt, cheese and bread. 
 Oh, and did I mention that YOU'RE CRAWLING!!!  You are so cute doing it too. You literally just took off one day.  You went from being on your knees in your crib one day, to standing in your crib the next, to crawling the next.  It's so fun to watch you move. 
 You talk all day long!  It's so fun to hear what you've got to say.  You're still a little screamer, a happy scream though.  And you laugh A LOT.  You love being tickled and you love your bath time.  You are such a happy baby!  The only thing that throws you off is if we leave town and you don't get to be in your bed...but that's completely understandable.  You're pulling up to everything and will soon be walking! 
 Graham, you are the JOY in our lives.  Today both mine and Clint's hearts were heavy with the passing of a dear friend and mentor and we both needed to hear your sweet laugh to get us through the day.  We don't know life without you.  You are one loved little boy.  We're so proud of you and wouldn't change you for any other little guy.  Here's to 9 precious months!

Kat, he is just precious and beautiful! I can tell y'all are enjoying him so much, and I know he is just in love with his mama and daddy! I am very jealous of the sleeping through the night thing. What's your secret?
