14 Months

Gavin is growing up so fast! He has become quite a mimic lately. Every thing we do he tries to do or say. Example:We have lots of hand sanitizer bottles/wipes laying around our house. In particular we have a rather large one we keep on the ottoman for a quick hand wash. Gavin has observed us "washing" our hands and started to do it himself. He goes up to the bottle (he can't reach it) acts like he pushes the dispenser and then begins to rub his hands together.

We have started really working on names with people. We have a picture book with family members/grandparents and we point and say their name. But in person I always put my hand on my chest and say "Mama". So Gavin puts his hands on his chest and says "Mama". I laugh every time he does it, so he has started doing it more often. We are working on correcting that, but oh well its too cute!

Weeks ago, Gavin was trying to pull the outlet covers out. I tried to remove him from it and distract him with something else, however, he always goes back. One day I had to tap his hand and tell him "no, we don't touch, that will hurt you". It didn't phase him at all. He went back to the outlet and took one hand and slapped the other and said "no, no". ;)

The other day Gavin was looking at a book and he just started laughing. Gavin has NEVER laughed much. He smiles a lot just no noise with it. It melted my heart to hear him laugh!

Gavin is IN LOVE with his Daddy. I do not exist when Adam gets home. So when Adam is at work I try to enjoy my cuddling time with Gavin.

Here are some pictures of Gavin when we attempted to get a family Christmas card picture. We have a cute one of himself we decided to use instead. Happy 14 months baby boy! We love you!
Starting to get mad...
Fists Clinched

"OK, now I am REALLY ticked!"

(I think Gavin's temper tantrum messed the camera up, we considered using this one if it wasn't so blurry!)

*Adam changed clothes during the photo session, hince the different shirts...*

"Ho, Ho, Ho"

Gavin met "Santa" for the first time a couple of weeks ago. Gavin calls him "Ta" and attempts to do a version of "Ho, Ho, Ho". No tears for Gavin, but you could tell he was trying to figure this guy out! He just stared at him and wouldn't look at the camera for a picture. So I guess our first official Santa meeting was a success!
