thirty six weeks - our little turkey crawls

A blanket from my great grandma's house!
I wonder who knitted it?

Happy First Turkey Day Gavin!!!  
What a fun week this was for the family.  On Wednesday Gavin decided he was ready to crawl.  Alan and I were hanging out in the living room and he just went!  It was awesome!!!  We are so excited for him.  Already we can tell that he is happy with his new skill...less growling and more exploring.  Here is his first video crawling for his Auntie Elissa!

On Wednesday night we left for a long trip to New York to visit family for the holidays.  We stayed at my grandmother's house.  Gavin enjoyed testing his new crawling on her floor!  His favorite was a mirror my Grandmother has in her bedroom.  It was just at the right level!

Here is crawling part II...wonders who he thinks that baby is?

On Thursday we had Thanksgiving dinner with a bunch of my cousins and Gavin's cousins.  We also got to see Aunt Rene, Michele, Gina, and Michael. Gavin tasted his first turkey and mashed taters.  He seemed to really enjoy them. A big Thank You to all the amazing Vogel's that hosted.  We had a blast! Look for more photos to come...

On Friday Aunt Rene and the ladies watched Gavin while Alan and I spent the day in the city exploring.  It was Alan's first time on foot so there was lots to do and not much time.  We walked for what seemed like miles and miles.  It was a great time!

While we were gone Gavin got his first BIG BOY hair cut from his Aunt!  He looks so cute :)  He also had some cheerios :) Still waiting on some photos of the big haircut....I'll post them as soon as she sends them :)

On Saturday we headed back home but stopped along the way to visit Ruthie, Adin and Ty.  Gavin had such a nice time visiting with them.  Here a a photo from then and now :)  They also gave us a great collection of clothes and toys for Gavin to use.  Thank you so much!!!


Sunday Gavin spent some time with Busia and Pop.  They had so much fun swinging in the outdoor indoor swing lol.  We all ate dinner together that night and Busia made Gavin some sweet potato.  He is growing so fast eating all this food.  What happened to the little baby we once had?
