Mr. Mischievous

Yesterday I was on my way home from Gavin's neurologist appointment and it got very quite in the back seat. I turned around to check on Gavin and he was sitting up in his car seat! (He is still in the rear facing infant car seat) He was looking in his mirror that hangs on the back of the seat and having a great time. I pulled him back as fast as I could and pulled over into a parking lot. When we got into the parking lot he knew I wasn't very happy so he turned around stood up and starting smiling as hard as he could with his eyes squinted! He has learned how to push the button and remove his arms from the straps!!! It is definitely time to upgrade to a new car seat!!! (This isn't a picture from the actual scene, but this is what he looked like)

On a side note, Gavin had another spell last Thursday, luckily he had his cardiologist appointment in OKC on Friday. So the cardiologist and neurologist felt that it would be best for Gavin to have another EEG and an MRI. Gavin will be under anesthesia for the MRI so please keep him in your prayers. I will let everyone know the dates as soon as I receive a phone call!

Please keep Abby (see link on right) and her family in your prayers today. Abby is having a heart cath. procedure due to scar tissue that has built up, obstructing a major artery, which will require prompt attention. Send them your love and prayers!

Gavin at 10 Months...

Gavin's newest way of telling us he is finished with dinner! Mr. Temper Tantrum himself...

Gavin at 10 Months...

*You have 5 teeth: top two and three on the bottom!
*You can crawl
*You pull up
*You like to scream/squeal and hit whoever is holding you in the chest when you get excited, you do this as soon as Dada gets home from work!
*You are VERY talkative now and we LOVE IT!
*You clap
*You wave bye-bye
*You can say "moo" (cow)
*You can say Dada and you said Mama for the first time last night while taking a bath!
*You call Aunt Kristen's boyfriend Kyle "Bubba"
*You can "Raise the Roof" (throw both hands in the air, we will have to get that on video)

Gavin, you have started doing so many things so fast and we are extremely proud of all you have accomplished. We love watching you grow and seeing your beautiful smile everyday. God has truly blessed us with a MIRACLE!!!

Mama and Dada

All Dressed Up!

Mama, Gavin and Aunt Kristen
Nana and Gavin
Two weeks ago we headed to Arkansas for my cousin Laura's wedding. It was in a beautiful glass chapel! We took some pictures outside at the reception, Gavin was all dressed up! Gavin quietly played with his toys and observed the people around him at the wedding. Congrats Laura and Ed!

Gavin's newest trick is to clap! He started clapping over the weekend! He has also started waving "bye-bye". We couldn't get him to do it on camera though.

I am working on the crawling video (you can see him crawling a little in this video), not sure why it is not showing!
