thirteen and a half months - old memories and new toys

Gavin discovers the refrigerator!

It seems like forever ago that I posted on the blog.  Time seems to be moving so fast I can't even keep up.  Gavin continues to grow and blossom.  He runs around the house climbing on furniture and at times jumping off.  He loves to climb!  I cannot wait to get him outside this summer on the playgrounds with his buddies.  These weeks he has also been teething like crazy with three new teeth coming through and one a big boy molar!  He has been sleeping through the night for weeks now, which is awesome, though those teeth sometimes interfere.  

In our last entry we shared our family trip to the aquarium but I forgot to include the most important photos of Gavin in the hotel pool.  He love love loved the pool.  Like a fish.  We need to start those swim classes again soon and I look forward to getting a pool in the yard :)

In addition to the pool, Gavin also enjoyed the touch tank at the aquarium.  Here is a cute one of him and his Auntie...also an attempt at a fun family photo :)

Gavin also had some fun playing with Ridge these past weeks.  Ridge has been playing with us three days a week which we love having him.  Gavin and Ridge have such a blast together.  They are also both learning the fine art of sharing...which is a difficult concept :)

We also managed to have some more play dates with Addy and Patrick.  It is so fun to watch all our kids grow up together.  It's amazing to think about them as they grow and change!  Here is a cute shot of Gavin and Addy! He is trying to share his new blue ball from Ms. Phoebe :)

The weather has been so nice around here that Alan and I had a chance to get the trailer on our bikes for Gavin.  We took him for a quick trip and he laughed and giggled the whole time.  We look forward to testing it out on the bike path real soon.  We even bought him a super cute bike helmet so he is all set!

Other highlights in our week include packing, packing, and more packing.  We are headed to a new home which is really exciting.  We will have a big yard and more bedrooms.  Though packing is not our favorite, we have done it many times, we look forward to the change and growth it will provide our family.  See you in two weeks :)
