Gavin's Vacation - Friday

Today they are at Schlitterbahn. 2 adults, 5 children. Crazy! Pictures to come later!!!

He's so *not* gonna want to come home!!!

Gavin's Vacation - Thursday

Thursday was supposed to be another swim day.... but they ended up getting rained out. So after the storm cleared, they headed to the park to play. Afterwards, they got snocones!! Gavin got blue coconut...can you tell???

Gavin's Vacation - Wednesday

Wednesday was Bowling Day. Denise said he had a BLAST! Apparently, it wore him out :)

They also went to the movies that night. They saw "Dispicable Me". And you will have to ask Denise the funniest story ever.... Gavin got stuck in the seat :)

Gavin's Vacation - Tuesday

Tuesday was Gavin's 4th Birthday!
(We didnt get to see him in person but we did Skype with him so that was pretty stinking cool!!)
For his birthday they went swimming during the day and to Gattiland for supper. Of course, he wanted to play all the games!
They even got him some little cupcakes :)

*Thanks Girls for making his birthday so special!*

Gavin's Vacation - Monday

Gavin is in Austin all week with Denise, Dustin, Shelley and her kiddos Skyler, Dominique and JaKobie. They have different things planned for every day! Wish I couldve gone with them!!
Monday was Bouncehouse Day

This picture cracks me up....

Apparently this is what I have to look forward to for a long time....

Garrett 3 months

On Monday, Garrett turned 3 months old. So hard to believe! We have truly enjoyed the complete chaos that he has brought into our lives... hes just so stinking cute :) He is starting to smile super big and LOVES looking at his family. He just stares in wonderment at Gavin - probably wondering what is up with that kiddo! His eyes are dark blue unlike his brother's. I tell people we have both worlds - sky blue (Gavin) and ocean blue (Garrett). He is a little less relaxed than Gavin was as an infant - but he is still a good baby. He can go from super smiley to super grumpy is less than a minute....for no reason! Its hilarious to watch that big o smile turn upside down into the poutyest little frown. I just wanna kiss him :)
At his 2 month dr appt - he weighed 12 lbs 12 oz and was 23 inches long. That makes him 12 oz heavier and 1 inch longer than Gavin was at the same age.
He is starting to eat 4-6 oz every 2-4 hours so the doctor is already having us feed him rice cereal! We didnt start cereal with Gavin until he was almost 5 months! But once he has the rice cereal/formula bottle at night - we can usually get about 5-6 hours of sleep out of him... thank goodness!!!
I cant wait for his personality to develop a little more.... and I'll be sure and keep yall posted!

Gavin portraits

While Denise was taking pictures of Garrett, oddly enough my oldest wanted to be in front of the camera. (We basically have to beg/bribe him to take pictures.) But when someone else is having pictures done, he always wants to join the fun. So here are a couple she took:

Why do we need a Mimi?

I was playing around on my Facebook and came across something Gavin said last September and I wanted to share it on here.

{We were on our way to pick up Mimi to go to Coleman to see my Mom and family.
Gav: Why do we need a Mimi?
Me: She wants to go with us.
Gav: No, WHY do we need a Mimi?
Me: Like all Mimi's in general?
Gav: Yah
Me: Well, Mimi made GG, GG made me and I made you.
Gav: Oh, that was so nice of you Mommy.}

That still makes me smile :)

Garrett & GG

My mom and I went to Austin last weekend for some vacay and to introduce Garrett to all my ATX peeps. We met up with Jeannettey and Brandon and took the boys swimming. Here is Garrett's idea of relaxing by the pool:

Garrett 1 month

May 12 was Garrett's one month birthday!
Wow...time has flown!!!

Really.... SO soon?

Gavin asked me the other night where babies come from. *head slap*. We have talked a lot about babies since he knew I had a baby growing in my tummy. And thank goodness I had my c-section scar from his birth, I just told him thats where the baby would come out. He loved that he could see that. Thats where he came from, thats where Baby Garrett would come from. After I got home from the hospital he was already checking on my "owie" that Baby Garrett came out of. Then the other night he asked "Momma, where do babies come from?" So of course I told him "Bellies". He said "DUH! I knew that! How does the baby get IN your belly?" I knew this was coming.... someday. Never this soon. But thankfully I have friends with older kids who have been through this, so I told him "When a Mommy and Daddy love each other very much and want to have a baby, God puts the baby in there. Then Mommy grows the baby in her tummy until the baby is big enough to come out." This satisfied him totally :) Thank God!!!

LOVE this....

While Denise was in town helping me out with the baby, she graciously took newborn pictures of Garrett. She did a FANTABULOUS job! (Of course, she had a beautiful subject too!)
