3 Months Home

 What can I say...we love our sweet son and can't imagine our world without him. 

Smart, silly, sweet, stubborn, snack lover, social...

He is beginning to really enjoy going to "school". His teacher says that he loves being around the other children and is not afraid to get a toy that he wants...that can be decoded in many different ways, LOL.

Potty training could be happening sometime soon. He's begun to notify us when the time has passed, but we're definitely heading in the right direction. 

He is making an attempt to repeat us more frequently and will typically have a hi or bye for people we meet. 

We are still working on sleep. Although he will nap at school, the only way for him to nap at home is starting off with a car or stroller ride. He still wakes up during the night, but that is getting better, too. 

One last week, before I start going to workshops for the new school year and Matt has been working more hours that ever before, but life is good!

Every day is so much sweeter with this little guy at home!

Ready for the Olympics!

Best Friends!

Growing up quickly!

Excuse the mess, but just had to capture our favorite hat!

I LOVE corn!

2 months +

This is the only way to stay cool, if we venture outside. 


Time keeps flying by. 
Gavin has met ALL of his grandparents.




Gavin is doing really well, even in the Texas heat, LOL!
He is coming along with his language. His receptive is really great! We are still working on expressing ourselves. He will "count along" if we count to 3 and when the ABC song is played he will interject certain letters at points along the song. The other day we heard him say good bye or bye bye very clearly. He has other words, too such as tree, grapes. etc... He loves saying the word teeth. 
He still does not like to take naps, at all! It wouldn't be an issue except he will get cranky without one. Going to sleep at night is getting easier. When we first got home bedtime was pretty stressful. Now I wouldn't miss it for the world. Gavin has started going to day care for 2 days each week. We thought it would be a good transition leading up to when he starts full time in August. He has been doing really well. We really love where he's going and we know he's being well taken care of. 
We hope you are staying cool during this hot summer and that you had a Happy 4th!
