My BIG Boy and my own craftinessless!

Graham turned 10 months old about a week ago... wow, unbelievable!  I'm already thinking about his 1st birthday party.  We had his follow up doctor appointment and he went from 14 lbs. 15 oz. and 27.5 in. last month to 16 lbs. 8 oz. and 29 in.!  We are so happy and excited that he is back on track... Well, he is on his own 3rd-ish percentile track on the normal charts.  However, we did find out that he is firmly on the breastfed babies chart, so that's great news.  That's the chart we'll be using for next month's weight check too.  Here's an updated picture of my big boy: 

He has two bottom teeth now and is still crawling and pulling up everywhere he can.  Every once in a while, he'll let go for a couple of seconds and stand on his own but that's as close as he's gotten to standing on his own/walking so far.  He is quite the talker!  He babbles all the time ... bamawagatada... lots of letters/sounds!  It seems like he's saying new ones everyday.     
Due to Graham's growth, it looks like we'll have to start looking for a convertible seat for the car, because he will soon be too long for his infant car seat.  Any suggestions, my mom friends?  

On another note, I've decided to try to make all my Christmas gifts this year.  We'll see how this goes considering I'm not very crafty but I will keep you updated.  Unfortunately I probably won't post pictures or anything until after Christmas because I don't want to ruin anyone's surprise!  

In getting ready for being crafty, I decided to "make" my niece's 7th birthday present.  It's ... money!! (that's presented in a cute and unique way).  I emptied a tissue box and put $1 bills in it.  I taped each bill end to end, so she could just pull the dollars out one after another.  The more bills, the more surprise and excitement from the birthday girl.  I attached a bow and a little note that read 'Happy birthday!  Don't "blow" it all in one place!' FYI, this gift was a hit!
