January 2009 – A review in pictures

Well, since I totally slacked on blogging last month, I thought that I would at least leave you with a picture review of what we did this month.

I had to work on New Years Day, so I decided to spend the night at my mom’s and ring in the New Year with them.  Jeremy was had to be at work very early on New Years,  so I knew he would be going to bed early.  It was nice to have someone to celebrate the night with.

IMG_2390On New Years Day, Gavin fell asleep in my Dad’s arms.   For anyone that knows Gavin, this was a truly momentous occasion.  Gavin doesn’t let many people hold him for more than 5 minutes. 

IMG_2394Mikayla had fun painting some pictures that Santa brought her.

IMG_2395Jeremy took this picture of Gavin one night.   He was sporting some serious low-riders.

IMG_2410 Mikayla loves hanging out with my Dad.   She can usually con him into turning on “Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed” or “Little Bunny Foo-Foo” on You-tube.   I guess Mikayla wore out her Papa!IMG_2411 This is just a cute picture of Gavin – he is such a happy little boy.

IMG_2412 Gavin will often get into the pantry and pull out various canned goods.  He will sometimes pull out the beef broth and tip it up like he is drinking out of it – so weird!

IMG_2415 We have had a couple of pretty cold and windy days.  One Friday morning, we met up with Mikayla’s playgroup at an indoor bounce house.  This was the first time we had been there since Gavin was old enough to walk.  He had a great time, running all over the place and jumping in the Toddler Zone.

Emily and Andrew stayed an extra two weeks that they had originally planned.  I loved having some extra cuddle time with my favorite nephew!


I can’t remember what Gavin was trying to get, but he was obviously unhappy that he couldn’t reach it.  Do you like how he pushed the stepstool over to try to get whatever it was?

What fun. That last one of Gavin is too sweet. I need to get copies of these pics!!

P.S. I just saw that stick family at the bottom of your page - they need a dog that's the same size of Mikayla. Haley is not that small....
