twenty one weeks - when will we see you pearly whites

A very cool playmat passed along from our friend Moira.
Gavin loves to feel the texture of it with his fingers :) 

It was a beautiful week here!  Lots of sun and warmth to share.  Gavin has started to giggle and chuckle like crazy this week.  I have identified some ticklish spots on him and it is so cute to watch him belly laugh.  It bring a smile to my face every time.  This week Gavin met a few new friends as I worked on a group project.  Holly, Robyn, and Sue had the opportunity to meet and play with Gavin.  On Tuesday we went to group which was nice.  It has been a few weeks!  That afternoon we had a doctors appointment to discuss Gavin's teething.  He weighed in at 16 pounds and 11 ounces.  WOW!  He just keeps growing...amazing :)  This week I also played with a online program called Animoto.  It allows you to take photos and video clips to create short movies.  It was super fun to create a movie of Gavin's hospital experience to use to show teacher and students how to use this fun freeware :)

Most of the week Gavin and I stayed home and chilled enjoying walks around the area and playing together.  I want to enjoy each and every moment before work begins again.  I will miss him!  On Friday morning we took a long walk with some great mommas on the bike path.  Thanks to Roxanne and Camden for lending us their Baby Hawk carrier.  Gavin so enjoyed snoozing in it while we completed our beautiful walk.  Always wonderful to spend some time with some wonderful ladies!

That afternoon Lysa came over to visit with us and I took a photo to compare to the first time she held Gavin.  Gosh how slow and fast four months can be.  Who ever knew so much could change in such a short period of time :)
Lysa and Gavin Week One

Lysa and Gavin Week Twenty One
Saturday we ventured over to Auntie Elissa's and Uncle Tim's for a BBQ with some old friends.  Gavin got to enjoy her ceiling fan and take a snooze in her spare bedroom.  Auntie Elissa, expecting herself, spent some time with Gavin feeding him and attempted to take a family photo of us.

Auntie Elissa, Gavin, and The Unnamed Hippo!
