forty four weeks - let it snow while i grow

A new comforter...Gavin could not keep his hands out of his mouth lol!
Gavin continues to grow more and more confidence with maneuvering around furniture in the house.  He particularly loves to stand on the treadmill and look out the window.  Saying "dada" is also a favorite though I think he is beginning to try to manipulate his voice more.  He uses his hand to make new sounds out of his mouth.  He is such a chatterbox.  One night he just babbled to himself for a good 40 minutes while I did the dishes and cleaned the kitchen up lol.  I of course nodded and responded with witty comments :)  For mealtimes, Gavin is enjoying rice, pancakes, scrambled eggs, bananas, and blueberries.  I think blueberries are his favorite though they are very messy :)

On Thursday Gavin got to meet a new friend Connor who came to visit with his mommy Kirsten.  Connor is almost 3 months old so of course Gavin did not know what to make of him.  He did try to taste him I think but we redirected him lol.

That evening Ridge came over to play for a couple hours.  I so love seeing these two together.  It is amazing how much they have grown and that they will be a year old in just a couple month!  Gosh time flies. 

Also this week Gavin is loving his new sippy cup from his Auntie Elissa.  It is amazing how much water he will drink if you let him.  In addition, he has learn how to help his momma fold laundry...or maybe I mean unfold the laundry lol either way!

On Saturday it snowed and this was the first time Gavin has ever experienced it!  He was amazed looking outside the window and did not no what to make of it while it fell softly on his eyelashes.  I think he caught a couple flakes on his tongue.  It was so fun to watch him experience it!

Maybe next time we will break out the sled and bring him for a ride.  This week we also started to use an app called Instagrams to created digitally altered images to share.  Here are a couple from this week.  It is so much fun to play with and you can modify newer photos to look like they were taken old school :)  I love it!
