The Best Day of the Week

I love Sundays. I don't make plans on Sundays with anyone typically. If I make plans on Sunday, they are usually impromptu. It's our day to just veg. No agendas. Gavin woke up around 8 this morning, we made a big breakfast of french toast, hashbrowns and bacon. We played a little bit and then Lonnie went fishing with our neighbor. Gavin took a nap and I caught up on some television. The sun was shining and it was about 75 outside so we headed outside this afternoon to take some pictures. We finished up by grilling out with our neighbors and drinking a beer. Boy, have I missed warm weather. I couldn't have asked for a better day.

Yep, I know I'm cute...

We have a sitter! Gavin has been getting stronger and stronger every day and is starting to sit pretty well on his own!

Play Time with Elmo

The other day, Lonnie, Gavin and I were browsing the toy isle in Wal-Mart. I was in search of a new book for Gavin. While I was browsing the baby books, I heard the cutest little giggle out of Gavin. I looked over to see Lonnie and Gavin playing with Elmo. Every time Lonnie would push Elmo's hand to make him talk, Gavin would start smiling and talking back to Elmo. Needless to say, Gavin got a new book and a new toy.

Game Night!

Last weekend, my friend Stephaine (and no, I didn't misspell her name...promise!) was gracious enough to host game night at her house. Game night wouldn't be complete without a few beers, some good food and Partini! Game nights used to go into the weeeeee hours of the morning but by 9 o'clock I was pooped! Guess that's what being a parent does to you. Gavin couldn't hang either (as evidence proves in the above picture).

Thanks to Jhen over at From Here to Eternity for my new blog design! Maybe this is the motivation I need to blog more!

Random Updates

Random iphone photo sent to me at work this week. courtesy of grandma.

I catch myself looking too much into the future. I can't wait for Gavin to take his first steps. I can't wait for the first time he says "I wuv you!" But looking too far into the future can leave you missing out on what's happening now.

  • Gavin is doing really good eating solids. He's a little piggy (although he's still my little peanut). So far he's had: cereal, oatmeal, squash, sweet potatoes, carrots, applesauce, bananas, green beans and peas. He's such a little drama king when it comes to stuff he doesn't like at first though. He makes this awful little face (which makes me laugh) and then he gags. I can't help but laugh at him.
  • He's rolling over but not all the time. He hasn't figured out that he can get places yet...thank goodness.
  • He's grabbing....EVERYTHING. My hair, my face, my hands, my dinner. Lonnie was feeding him the other day and he grabbed the bowl of food right out of his hands.
  • Gavin peed all over Lonnie last night. Poor daddy. Needless to say, a bath was next on the agenda. He never pees on me :)
  • He's still waking up once a night and he usually ends up in bed with us after that. He goes right back to sleep after getting a snack. I need to start working on eliminating this. But he's just so snuggly.
  • He is so ticklish! It brings out his cute little giggle every time.
  • His cheeks are getting so fat :) I just want to kiss them and pinch them. Thanks hubby for giving Gavin your chipmunk cheeks.
  • He's getting more hair on his head. Except on the sides and in the back. Just the top. He's going to have a crazy little hair style in a couple months.
  • He's on his way to sitting up on his own! Grandma said the other day he sat unassisted for about a minute. Then he moved his head and toppled over :)
  • Gavin can't sit still. He's got to be moving something at all times. Whether its his foot or his hands, he's always moving. Busy little boy!

That's all for now!
