9 month check up!

Gavin and I just got back from his 9 month check up - wow - can you believe he's nine months old! He weighs 20 lbs 8 oz - exactly 50th percentile. He is 29 3/4 in tall - that's 90th percentile! No wonder everyone comments on his height when we go places! The doctor said everything looks great. We get to introduce meats now - so another yummy step for Gavin! He's pushing himself up on all fours and rocking, so we're thinking crawling is probably not far behind. He scoots really well on his butt - and tends to go backwards when he's on his belly! He's constantly saying da-da-da-da! His top teeth don't look like they have far to go before they are down - it'll be nice to get a break from this teething soon! Better go play with him before I have to leave for work. Have a great holiday weekend!

We LOVE play dates!

We had so much fun yesterday! We met Chris and Garett and their cabin in Big Lake. Gavin was so excited to have someone to play with. They both just smiled and screached at each other - it was hard to tell who was screaming, they sound so much a like. We tried to get Garett to teach Gav how to crawl - but he's just so quick! I can't wait to see Gavin's little butt moving like that - Garett you are just way too cute! Now I can't wait to see Garett, Connor and Gavin all together - we missed you Connor! Hopefully this becomes a regular thing - I think Gavin enjoyed having company his own age!

Mother's Day

We had a fun mother's day weekend. We spent sunday afternoon with my mom and the evening with Bryan's. Gavin got his first ride on the "tractor" - which I think he really enjoyed! it was nice to just relax and not really do anything. We also got to meet Dixie - Nick and Angi's new puppy - she is so cute - and so tiny! She just laid between Gavin's legs in the grass. Hope everyone else had a great weekend!

He's just getting so big! I can hardly believe it, I was just looking at him last night as he was going to bed, and he just looks one, like a little boy, no more baby, and two - so much like his dad! He's babbling (or screaming!) up a storm, still no crawling, but that will come. Next week we get to go visit Garett, so I'm hoping he'll teach him how to crawl! Gavin got another tooth, so now the bottom two are up. He loves to be outside too - last night he sat in his saucer while Bryan grilled - just playing for the longest time. Hope everyone has a wonderful Mother's day weekend!
