forty one weeks - happy new years little prince


It is so great to have Gavin feeling better...we were really missing his boisterous personality!  This week Gavin had his 9 month check-up.  They checked out his ears which are looking much better and determined we would follow up in three weeks to make sure all is going well.  He weighs 20 pounds 11 ounces and is in the 65 percentile, for height he is 29 1/4 inches long putting him in the 80 percentile.  We are all wondering where that height sprouted from.  I can hardly believe he was once 5 pounds and 18 inches!

This week Gavin is on the move cruising around the house with more confidence.  He will transition from furniture and makes attempts to stand on his own.  We are working on encouraging him to bend with his knees or land on his bottom from a standing position.    
Sporting big boy undies!!!
He has also begun this high pitched screeching sound that he enjoys mimicking from others.  His favorite toys appear to be blocks and anything he can bang on.  He also likes to imitate others by banging on furniture and toys.  I found him this week playing in the bathroom with the toilet paper...let the fun begin LOL!
On Wednesday Auntie Elissa and Uncle Tim watched Gavin while I headed to a doctors appointment.  Gavin had a blast playing with them and Uncle Tim enjoyed playing airplane with Gavin.  We look forward to their little one joining us :)
On Friday Busia and Pop came over to watch Gavin while Alan and I headed out to a movie and late lunch.  Busia brought him a special hat from Burger King since she called him Prince Gavin.  Though chewing it was such fun we did get some great shots with him sporting it on his head also :)  Busia also bought him a new hat to keep his ears snuggly warm as the winter pushes on.  That evening I headed out to get a well deserved massage....thank you Alan for the awesome gift!

New Years Eve we had Ridge with parents in tow over for dinner.  It was great to see the boys play and we enjoyed some adult time.  They were really into the penguin toy that Busia bought Gavin some time back. We were in bed before the ball dropped but Gavin did wake at 12:30 to remind us it was a new year...oh Gavin!

I can hardly believe that it is a new year...welcome 2012!  We look forward to seeing what the new year brings us and watching as Gavin Alan continues to grow and learn.
