6 months old!

Last week Gavin turned 6 months old! It amazes me how fast the time has flown! We just had his 6 month check-up, and he did very well with his shots! He wasn't cranky or didn't get a fever, so that was nice! He weighs 12 lbs. 8 oz...which is a little small for his age. He wasn't even on the chart for percentile. The doctor was a little concerned, so he gave us another medication to try to help out with his throwing up. He was 25 1/2 inches in heighth, which is the 25th percentile. He is really working hard on crawling, so it is time to baby proof the house!

Family Pictures

For a couple of weeks we have been planning to go up to Sundance to get family pictures taken. Every weekend it has been crappy weather, so we finally decided that we are going up whether it is good weather or bad weather. Well, instead of trying to get some beautiful fall pictures, we got some wintery weather. It was snowing a lot up there! This was Gavin's first time in the snow, and he was covered up and couldn't see it most of the time! When he did see it, he thought it was pretty neat. I was pretty impressed on how the pictures turned out, since we only were able to take a few pictures because of the weather. Autumn and Doug went up with us to get their pictures done as well. After, we went to Red Lobster and had a nice hot dinner!

Happy Birthday Casey!

Yesterday it was Casey's 28th birthday. We had friends and family over for his favorite carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, and icecream. He got a few gift cards from Wal-mart and Wingers, his mom is making him a quilt, and I got him a movie and "Harry Potter Scene It" (we are huge Harry Potter fans).

We joke around that Casey's birthday is really on October 19th, because when Casey and I had first started dating seriously, I was asking Casey when his birthday was, and he wouldn't tell me. I then went to our friend Mat Pledger and asked him what Casey's birthday was. Mat knew that Casey wasn't telling me his birthday, so to be funny, he told me his birthday was on October 19th. So I believed him! On his real birthday, I went over to Casey's house, and all of his friends were there, so I quickly asked Floyd if today was Casey's birthday. He of course told me it was, but thought it was weird that I didn't know when my boyfriend's birthday was!
I saw this on Stacy's blog and thought it was appropriate since it was just Casey's birthday:

My husband...What is his name? Casey Jay Losee

How long have you been together? Well, I have known Casey for many years, but we started dating in March of 2003.

Who eats more? Definantly Casey...especially if it a good piece of steak, spaghetti or fried chicken.

Who said I love you first? He did

Who is taller? Casey, he isn't very tall, so he is lucky that I am short!

Who is smarter? I enjoy learning more then he does...that is a hard question!

Whose temper is worse? haha...he would say me, but I say him!

Who does the laundry? I do

Who pays the bills? I do...I love it!

Who mows the lawn? Casey...I once tried to, but I couldn't start the lawn mower.

Who cooks dinner? of my favorite things to do!

Who asked whom out? He did, but after a lot of hints from me!

Who kissed whom first? He kissed me, but I definantly kissed back!

Who wears the pants in the family? I thought I did, but I am finally realizing that he does.

What do you love most about your husband? I love a lot of things about him, but right now, what I love the most about him is that he always lets me know that he loves me. Whether by words or by actions. I love that he wakes up at 4:45 in the morning so that he can put in a full day of work and be home so that he can watch Gavin so I can go to work. I love that he is a good dad to Gavin. I love that he makes me laugh. I love that he teases me.

Happy Birthday Casey!

Braxton is always so cute with Gavin. Every time he sees him, he just wants to hold him and give him kisses. Gavin loves the attention!
I don't know what he is doing...plugging Gavin's nose?

Pictures with Grandma and Grandpa

My mom and dad wanted to get pictures with their grandbabies to put in their Christmas cards this year. So yesterday we got together and went crazy with the camera. I think we took about 50 pictures with my parents camera, and 1 picture turned out. It is hard to take pictures with little kids! My camera died after a few pictures, so this is the best I got! Damon (4) Gavin (6 months) Kylie (20 months) and Braxton (2 1/2)

Little Pumpkin

Today I got out Gavin's Halloween costume to see how he looked. I thought he looked so cute that I had to get some pictures of it. I went a little picture crazy, but we had fun. The pumpkin is one my parent's grew in their garden this year. Isn't it huge!

This tree in our yard is starting to turn colors. I love the fall leaves!

I am going to miss this warm weather...

Since it was such nice weather, I decided to take advantage of it and go for a walk. It was so nice outside, when we got back, I didn't want to go inside, so I let the dogs play in the yard, and Gavin and I just relaxed and enjoyed the warm weather.

The puppy is giving him kisses.
Now she is biting his fingers.

My handy husband

When we had got our plasma TV, I didn't think about the pain of hiding the cords, so I have been dealing with those for over a year! Finally Casey came up with the idea of making a DVD shelf to go in front and hide the hideous cords! On Thursday, I had to work late because of Parent Teacher Conferences. When I got home, I got quite the surprise! Casey had spent all day babysitting Gavin and finishing up the shelves! They looked great!

Sitting up

Gavin has been doing really good sitting up! It has made playtime nice! I can put him in his playpen and he'll play for a while with his toys. Before, he would lay on his back and play with his toys, and then roll over on his tummy and get mad. Eventually he ends up on his tummy, but this just prolongs it! reading his book...
well, eating his book
