I forget that Gavin still loves his swing. I have it in his room, and he rarely uses it, because he likes to be on the go. Today I put him in it for a little bit while I was getting ready, and he was having a blast.

I cut it again!

I went in on Saturday to get my hair TRIMMED. I left with a little more then a trim. I love it, and Casey has gotten use to it now. It was quite a shock when I came home! I love it so much, I had to get a picture of it....I felt really silly taking the picture by myself, but Casey would have laughed at me if I had him take it!

Yum! Rolls!

Gavin's favorite food right now is rolls. He gets so excited when he sees me pull a roll out of the bag and start walking towards him! At first I would break it up into small pieces, but one day I just gave it to him whole and he felt like such a big boy holding it in both hands and chewing away at it. He can easily eat a whole roll at one sitting, and probably more if I would let him! Almost done! He is very generous and sometimes drops a few pieces to the dogs who sit patiently by his high chair.

Happy Birthday Braxton!!

Braxton had his 3rd birthday today. He is such a funny little boy, and says the funniest things! My favorite thing he says is, "Brynnie, you and Gavin are my best friends." He always makes me laugh when we are around him!

Opening his present from us. He got a piano from Papa Bill and Grandma Deana.
Gavin LOVED the piano. He always found his way to the piano and he would pull himself up and start pounding away at it!

Family picture

We were all so matchy matchy, I had to get a picture.

10 months!

Gavin is now 10 months! I can't believe that in a couple of months he'll be 1! It seems like I just had him! He finally has a tooth popping up! It was a rough week when that happened, and now that it is up, it is good to have our happy little Gavin back.

Emma's new look

Emma got her first hair cut, and I am surprised how well she did! I loved her long hair, but it only looked nice the day she was bathed, then it doesn't look as good. Once she got her hair cut, she had this new confidence! She was always too scared to hop off the couch, and now she can do it...if she is excited enough. She acts like a totally different dog, it is pretty funny!


Cool dog


I had a fun weekend hanging out with friends. On Friday, I went to dinner with my girl friends to Bajios. It was good to see everyone and get caught up with everything that is going on.

On Saturday we went to Kristine and Andrew Davis's and played guitar hero. I thought I was doing pretty good, until I played against Mat and Drew....I have to practice so I can beat them! It was a lot of fun to see Joe and Debbie Davis's baby, Abigail, and Gavin play together.

Don't you love those big blue eyes?
Plays like his mom....with the tongue sticking out!

Happy Valentines Day!

I had a great Valentines Day! We had a fun day at school decorating cookies, passing out Valentines and doing some fun Valentines Day activities. Holidays are the BEST when you are a teacher, and surprisingly, the kids were actually pretty good, and not too wired!

For dinner, we were going to go out to eat, but the thought of waiting for a table along with everyone else, didn't seem too fun, so we made dinner at home. We made Eggs Bennedict with Hollandaise Sauce. Yum. Later we made some sugar cookies and watched a movie.

I love the two boys in my life, my husband and son. I don't know what life would be like without them. What I love about Casey is his patience with me. He always makes me laugh and he makes me special all the time. I realized last night that Valentines Day was really no different from any other day, because he really makes me feel important every day.

He kept trying to reach in the bowl. He got some dough when I was trying to take a picture and loved it!

I put Gavin down for his nap, and a few minutes later I heard him playing, so I tried to sneak in his room to get a video of him playing, and I caught him cuddling with his stuffed animal! The best part was when he caught me. I just love his smile when he finds out I'm there.


Today was my day off (I work every other Monday), and I had fun just hanging out with Gavin. I know I am a little obsessed with my son, but here is ANOTHER video of him:)

Helping mom

Gavin was a big help today. I decided to take on the big task of washing the dogs. It wouldn't be so bad, except they HATE getting wet, so they sit there and try to get out. Gavin was a big help and stood there watching and playing with them. He just wishes he was on the other side with them!

Best Friends

Even though there is a 2 year difference between Gavin and Braxton, they are such cute little friends. Braxton is so good playing with Gavin, and you can tell Gavin looks up to his big cousin.
