nineteen weeks - the days fly by

Momma's favorite beach towel - Emily the Strange!

So now that Gavin is starting to explore the art of rolling he has found that he loves to sleep on his side - especially his left side (like his momma).  It is so adorable to watch him curl up to that side when he is sleepy and place his hands up near his face almost holding in his binkie/fooler.  What a cutie!  This week he has also become interested in his feet. Occasionally he will grab them and hold them.  I think as the weeks progress they will become more interesting to him.  

This week we attended a fun photo shoot for a new crib Target is going to carry in their stores this up coming fall.  Through a friend we got invited and Gavin had the opportunity to lay in bed while four little ladies (babies) sat and stood around him.  What a stud...lol!  Who knows if it would be used in ads or not but how fun if it is.  I even spiked his hair mohawk style - snickers.  

On Wednesday we spent the day with Jessica, Dylan, Katie, and Trevor enjoying the beautiful weather we are having.  It was so nice to spend the day at Jessica and Dylan's beautiful home.  Gavin used a Baby Bjorn for the first time and loved it.  He spent almost two hours in it, ate in it and slept.  A new friend for momma :)  Also Jessica and Dylan lent us their uber cool swing to hang in at home.  Thank You!!!!

This week we also inherited a large amount of clothes and other items from a close friend of mine.   Busia and I went through them and she washed a bunch he can wear now.  Super cool!  Recycling clothes is the best since they grow out of them so fast.  There is a great site I just joined where you can share recycled clothes called ThreadUp based out of San Francisco ---> check them out!  Ms. Phoebe also came over and spent some time with us this week.  We gave her some clothes for her little one she is expecting in the fall.  She took this super cute photo of Gavin in his jungle safari hat lol. 

Also this week Gavin and Ridge spent some quality time together.  They enjoyed playing in the new exosaucer and bouncer we have.  They are so fun to watch as they grow and change together.  We feel so lucky to have such a nice family to be friends with.  Gavin, Ridge, Jessie, and I also took a stroll on Saturday and shared lunch.

Later that afternoon Gavin and I attended a Flash Mob which was awesome!  We even saw some old friends.  In the evening, we listened to some live classical music and fireworks.  Sunday we got to spend the afternoon with Aunt Rene, Gina, Michelle, Michael, and Cristos who were visiting from NY. What a great weekend!
