My sweet Gavin turned 7! He had a fun couple of days celebrating. We celebrated the day of his Birthday getting ice cream and then the next day it was party after party! He had a friend party with the bounce house, cotton candy and snow cones, and then right after, the family came over and we had cake and ice cream and kept on partying!
Gavin is such a good boy. He is a good brother who is always wanting to play with his siblings. He is a big helper around the house. Whenever I tell him to clean up, he does a great job cleaning up toys and putting things away. He has been Casey and my little helper working in the yard. He loves to work in the yard with us. He has been working hard this school year. Learning to read hasn't been easy for him, but he is really working hard and has been making a lot of progress. He loves to play soccer and is learning the piano.
This little man is 4 months old! I can't believe he is already that old! He is such a GOOD baby. I feel very spoiled. He doesn't cry much and is a very calm and content baby. We just had his 4 month check-up and here are his stats:
-Weighs 9lbs 4 oz.
-22 1/2 inches long
-Smiles and interacts with us
-Loves to lay on the floor and look at his black and white books and hanging toys
-We are working on strengthening his neck with tummy time, but it's still a little wobbly
-Tracks and follows lights and pictures with his eyes
-I can always get a smile when I'm walking down the stairs with him
-Nurses and takes a bottle really good
-Still on oxygen at nights for pulmonary hypertension
-Doesn't nap real great, I have to hold him while he's sleeping or put him in his swing, or else he wakes up!
-I can't complain about his napping problems because he gives me 10-12 hours of sleep every night!
We have loved our Spring Break! I have loved being home with my cute kids and getting things done. We have also enjoyed going out for a few play dates. We enjoyed going to Thanksgiving Point with Camille and Sadie. It was beautiful there and smelled great!
We also enjoyed the park with Kassie and her kids. I love seeing little Crew and Liam interact with each other. They are always trying to grab each other or look at each other. Such cute little boys!
Gavin finally learned how to ride his bike without training wheels! We spent one afternoon outside working on it and he is a pro now! Kyson finally graduated from the trike to his bike with training wheels and Adalyn loves her new trike!
And this is what happens when we don't get a nap...we just lay outside on our pillow...
Casey and I were married on June 17, 2004. We have four kids. Gavin is 10 and is our little engineer. Kyson is 8 and is our little comedian. Adalyn is 5 and is our sweet dramatic little girl and y our little Angel, Liam is 3. I have the best of two worlds. I teach 1st grade part time, and then I get to be a mom! Casey works for his dad at a machine shop called Alpine Echo.
