Our Bad Luck

We have had bad luck with our puppies! Today we lost another one. Out of the 5 origional puppies, only one is left. The little boy was getting sick and wouldn't eat, so I called the vet and he suggested getting some dog milk at the Pet Store and feed him with a dropper. He seemed to be doing better and even started eating on his own, but today he passed away. Today I had got my camera out and decided to take a few pictures of the puppies, because I was going to post their pictures on I am glad I got some pictures of the little guy.

The little boy...isn't he cute The little girl...she is such a funny puppy.

Gavin and Brielle

Jessica and Jared Larson's baby Brielle was born just 2 weeks after Gavin. It is so fun seeing them grow up together! They are so cute when they see each other. They smile real big at each other, it is so fun!

5 months old!

Gavin is now 5 months old! It has been a fast month! He started rolling over this month, and does it all the time! He only rolls from his back to his front, and won't go the other way because he doesn't like being on his back. We just started eating solids today. He had so much fun! He thinks he is such a big boy! He is sure a happy baby!

Bear Lake Trip

We had such a fun weekend up at Bear Lake! My whole family went up, plus my dad's cousin Sandee and her husband Rudy, another one of his cousins, Maryann, and another cousin's wife, Linda. It was a lot of fun. We shared a condo with Autumn and Doug, and Casey and I were lucky to get the Master Bedroom, with a jetted tub! That was fun to relax in! We had a lot of fun swimming, boating and eating!

I was so scared the whole time! Rudy was nice and went slow!

While I was out on the tube, Braxton drove the boat.
After an exhausting day on the boat, all the kids took a little nap:

Eating toes

Gavin loves to put almost anything in his mouth. Right now he is putting his toes in his mouth. It amazes me how flexible he is!

Loves his puppies!

Gavin is a pretty lucky baby because he is surrounded by dogs and a cat. He loves to look at Belle and Bear and grab their hair and pull. His new thing right now is to put everything in his mouth, so when I gave him the puppy to hold, he immediatly started to put it in his mouth! Don't worry, I stopped him before he actually did it! He thought it was pretty fun to hold the little puppy though.
2 weeks old...they are sure fat! Hopefully their eyes open this week.

Gavin on his jumper

I pulled out the Johnny Jumper today to see if Gavin would like it. He loved it! He doesn't know how to jump with it yet, but he loves just standing there. I was playing with Bear, and throwing his toy, and I put his toy on Gavin's jumper, and he laughed so hard when Bear hopped up to get it!
Look how big I am!

The Blackout

We had a blackout last night for 13 hours. It was probably one of the best nights I have had being married. It made me really appreciate Casey and I love him even more. With the aid of candles and flashlights, we had a lot of fun playing our favorite game, Pounce, I read Harry Potter to Casey and we just sat around and talked. We should have blackouts more often!

Family reunion

Every year, Casey's family goes down to Delta for the annual family reunion. This was the first year I have been down there. I have heard all about the crazy aunts who fiddled and yoddled, but this was the first time I got to see it for myself. It was amazing...haha.

This was the first time Casey's Grandparents saw Gavin. They were very excited to see him. His Grandpa is getting very old and frail, but he wanted to hold Gavin. As he was holding him, both Grandma and I had our hands up ready to catch Gavin if he fell, because Grandpa was shaking so bad while he was holding him. He didn't hold him for long, but he was very happy to see him and hold him.
