little wonders...

This picture was just after a haircut and I actually just gave Gavyn another one yesterday... I figured out that he holds pretty still and is captivated by the stuff in the tub so I cut his hair while he's taking a bath and just wash it down the drain. It should work for at least a little longer. :)

He gets pretty stir-crazy so we bought a 5$ kiddie pool at Target and put 1/2 inch of water in it on the balcony. He liked it the two days the nice weather cooperated after we got it. Our complex opened their pool last weekend so as soon as I figure out my swimwear and the weather warms up, we can give that a try.

He is also getting more creative with entertaining himself... some ways make us happier than others.

And I finally finished the carseat blanket I've been working on! I even made a reenforced hole for each place the straps come through. Hope baby girl likes it.
(Gavyn's baby is modeling it for us for now)

And Gavyn's vocabulary has exploded! He learned "hair", "comb", and "cookie" just this week and it's only Wednesday! It's so fun to be able to communicate with him more and he's so proud of this new-found ability.

just an update...

He's getting so big!
Gavyn has been chatting up a storm- sometimes I swear he doesn't stop talking. I just wish I could know what he thinks he's saying...
He says "baby", and "CA!" (for "car"), a lot, "dada", "please", "picture", "bear", "pillow", "diaper", "bottle" (not for baby bottles, but tubes like Butt Paste), "ball", "bowl", "bush", "star" (he thinks flowers are stars, too.) ... I know there are more, but I can't think of them. We haven't gotten two words together, yet. I'm excited for that.

 We have been enjoying some great weekend weather lately. I don't see how people can look at a forecast that calls for rainy all week and sunny Saturday and Sunday and not believe in God... 

We have been playing at the playground, taking walks around shopping centers, and we went to the Olympic Sculpture Park downtown this past Sunday. Gavyn was mostly interested in the gravel...

And last Saturday we were very blessed! A man from Jared's work was giving away a digital piano on the condition that we "pay it forward" when opportunity presents itself. 
And I couldn't tell you if Jared or Gavyn is more excited. 
But they're both pretty excited!

Jared has had very busy weeknights lately so I have been occupying myself with my new fetish: making baby shoes!

I finally got a video of Gavyn dancing! He loves the into music to "Cheers". 

And I made these baby shoes yesterday!
