What's Gavin up to?

Here are some recent pictures of Gavin. He's getting so big and so full of personality. He absolutely loves his activity gym. As soon as I put him down, he starts pulling on the blue handle to make it play a song. He thinks it is hilarious.
He has definitely found his voice. He's becoming a noisy little thing! The other day I was in the kitchen and he was playing in the activity gym. All of a sudden I heard him just belt out "Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!" at the top of his lungs. I ran into the living room to see what was wrong and he started smiling and laughing. I think our days of a nice quiet house are over.

This is his "What's up mommy?" look.

He makes the cutest faces. And he looks just like me when I was little (I guess that's why he's so stinkin cute :). I'm going to have to scan a picture of me when I was his age and compare side by side.

He still loves his swing, but he likes it even more if you sing to him while he's swinging. And he doesn't seem to mind that I can't sing.

I broke out the bumbo seat the other day to see if he would like it. He likes sitting up so much because he can see everything (I think he might be nosy like his momma). After a few minutes, he decided he needed to rest his big old head on the side. Would you look at those pretty little lips?? And look! You can finally see some hair growing on his head! I was bald until I was like 18 months so this is promising!

2 Month Stats

Gavin had his two month check up today. He's growing like a weed now! After a slow start in gaining weight, he seems to be playing catch up rather nicely.

2 Month Well Check:
Weight: 9 lbs 8.5 oz (10th percentile)
Height: 22 inches (10th percentile)
Head: 38.7 cm (25th percentile)

Overall, he's doing really good. He jumped from 5th percentile to 10th percentile for weight so that's good. The doctor said that developmentally he's topping the charts! He's a very active and alert baby so this didn't really surprise me. He doesn't sit still and you can see him learning new things every day. And, I think he's going to be a little flirt. The doctor came in to do his examination and he just started smiling and cooing like crazy. She even got a few little baby laughs out of him. He wasn't as thrilled with the nurse that gave him his shots. He gave her the more serious look like "what do you think you're doing lady." He took them pretty well though. He screamed while she was pricking him, but he was fine once I picked him up.

1 Month Well Check:
Weight: 7 lbs 7.5 oz (5th percentile)
Height: 20.5 inches (10th percentile)
Head: 37 cm (25th percentile)

2 Week Well Check:
Weight: 6 lbs 3 oz (5th percentile)
Height: 19.5 inches (10th percentile)
Head: 35.8 cm (25th percentile)

He's just growing up way too fast. Before I know it, he'll be up and running around the house. Gotta get all my cuddling in now before it's gone.

Who Does Gavin Look Like?

So, do you remember when Lonnie had a dream about our baby turning out like a treasure troll (see post here)? This kid is waaaayyyy cuter than a treasure troll :)

So, I already know he's cuter than a treasure troll. However, in the past week I've been told that he looks like

Mean Uncle Justin and Uncle Mike :) On another note, after Lonnie and I found out the sex, we went shopping for Gavin's going home outfit. This is the outfit we picked out, but it turned out, it swallowed him whole! He didn't fit into it until he was 8 weeks old!

C'mon man....

We spent Halloween at Dana and Michael's house passing out candy to all the trick or treaters. Gavin and Aydan were just soooo excited about their first Halloween. The look on Aydan's face says it all...."C'mon man!"These boys are gonna hate us one day....
