A first attempt at solid food is the first of many firsts that mean a baby is growing up. Though he is only 12lbs my baby is now six months old, and the firsts have begun. This set of firsts is our last set, as there are no new siblings intended in the near future (though I suppose you never know). Somehow witnessing a child's first taste of food never gets old. His brothers thought it was hilarious, and Chris and I couldn't help but smile. Gavin has a lot of funny faces!!!
My spunky little Logan turned three in July. That means that he got to start pre-school this year. For 4 precious hours a week I have only one child at home. So fun for Gavin and I! Logan LOVES being in school and wearing his "pack pack" like a big boy. I'm sure we are in for a very fun year!
Poor Gavin!!! He is the youngest of four boys, which means that the older three will always be looking for new ways to tease/torture/humiliate him. Sure, at this age it is kind of cute to dress him up, or yes, put tupper ware on his head, but what will happen when he gets older? No doubt his older brothers will come up with new and inventive ways to make Gavin wish he wasn't youngest of four boys. Maybe I will be wrong, maybe they will all want to be his "best buddy". For his sake let's hope so!
I can't say that we had a particularly exciting summer, but we really did enjoy it. Many a night was spent in the backyard running around, playing games, or picking vegetables from the garden. We will miss eating outside and frolicking in the yard once winter comes. Here are just a few of our summer moments caught on film, or rather forever frozen in the digital world of cyber space.
No really, he is. Not like Jacob is a werewolf, but like 8 year old cub scouts are wolves, and boy is he excited!!! This is a new adventure that he is thoroughly enjoying. I am sitting back and thinking about how I will be doing scouts for like the next 16 years. WOW! That is a long time. I suppose I should just sit back, relax, and enjoy my little wolf, before he turns into a bear!
