16 months + - Up and Running

Gavin Alan - 16 1/2 Months

So the computer is back and up and running!!!! YAY :)  It is amazing how much you can miss something like a computer.  I had so many photos to download and updating to do on various sites.  However, I must say it was not as difficult as I thought to live my life without it for a few days.  

Gavin continues to grow and learn each day.  He knows a variety of words now.  A few favorites are shoes, more, and dog.   He of course continues to identify anything round with ball, however I did manage to get him to say "mon" for a lemon instead of call.  Baby steps ;)  We have also been transitioning from two naps to one.  I am hopeful by the time Brycen appears we will have it down to one long nap which will be helpful.  Sometime I think about how a month from now we could have another little man in our lives.  It amazes me how fast time goes :)

Over the past few weeks we have taken multiple opportunities to enjoy Cape Cod.  Spending days at the beach, playing in the marsh or building in the sand.  Gavin, Clara, and Ridge spent one day during low tide exploring the ocean floor....including the mud :)

We have also enjoyed spending some days playing at the beach with Auntie Elissa and Patrick.  Gavin even had his first ride in a row boat.  His favorite times are playing with his daddy in the water.  We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful place :)

Last week we also had the opportunity to have some family photos taken with Kristy of Portraits by Kristy.  You can check out her facebook page at or her new blog at  We were so lucky to win a contest she had and got some fantastic shots.  Here are just a few to share :)

It's so wonderful to have someone capture the moments that pass so fast in life for you.  As many of you know I love photography and its makes my heart melt to have them document my family and their love!!!  Thanks so much Kristy :)  In closing here is a current belly shot so Brycen John is officially part of the blog :)  35 weeks and counting.....we can't wait to meet you!!!
