Oh Baby!

I don't really have much new to report about Gavyn this past week. He's still very very cute and so so close to laughing. He slept 9 hours on Saturday night!! We woke up and both asked each other if they'd gotten up with him in the night but neither of us had so we went to check that his little chest was still rising and falling. Good baby!!

I'm convinced Jared has a magical armpit...

I threw a baby shower for my dear friend, Lu Walser this last weekend with the help of another sweet lady in our ward because our apartment probably couldn't have handled it...

She's having a girl mid-late June. These two are actually both pregnant, but Lu is the one on the left... :)
And I made little baby sugar cookies.

Funny story:
I wanted to make spring-ish cookies so I looked all over trying to find some flower or other appropriate cookies cutters, but I couldn't find any in the time I had, so I just pressed on without them...
I found my little stash of cookie cutters and discovered I didn't have a gingerbread lady like I thought I did; just a man and other assorted Christmas shapes like holly and candy canes, along with some different sized hearts. So I just decided to make the gingerbread men into onesied baby girls! I'm so clever...

Crazy Little Thing Called Love

Little Gavyn will be three months old tomorrow! I know everyone says this, but he's grown up so fast!He like to talk to us, smiles a lot and he's trying to laugh.
He can roll over all on his own- I had trouble getting the camera up fast enough to take a video before he rolled over!

He holds his head up really well and sometimes I think he is trying to figure out how to roll head-over-feet...

His longest night has been 8 hours. Not bad for such a light-weight.

He is starting to enjoy playing with toys, as well. We've rigged our kitchen table to entertain: a bungee chord across two legs and toys attached with baby-chains. Genius.

And he loves to snuggle.

Walking on Sunshine

Gavyn is in the stroller in front of us...

Sunday lived up to it's name last weekend so we headed with our good friends, the Walsers, to Snowqualmie Falls. I did not expect something so stunning at such an easy distance. It was beautiful! (I'm sure the perfect weather didn't hurt.) We're excited to be able to enjoy the summer more as I won't be feeling sick on a car ride longer than 15 min. Seattle area, here we come!

And I decided to have an adventure in the kitchen yesterday as well. I made kabobs, and no - we didn't get a grill, I just faked it in the oven. Who knew leftover chicken, a fresh pineapple, green peppers and sweet chili sauce, could turn out so delicious!?
