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....

Garrett Newborn Portraits

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!)
