I prayed for this child and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him. 1 Samuel 1:27

1/2 a year!

Where does the time go?? Our precious baby boy is 6 months old already! At his 6 month check up on Monday he weighed in at 18.8 pounds and 27.5 inches. He is 75th percentile in weight and 90th percentile in height! Needless to say we have a solid big boy on our hands! Gavin is now rolling around like a roly poly....back to front, front to back. We FOR SURE can't leave him on an elevated surface anymore without keeping a hand or eye on him! LOL! He sits up good with support, but isn't sitting up totally on his own yet. We know that is going to happen very soon though. Gavin is still a very good eater. We recently moved him up to stage 2 baby food and he really loves the apple/blueberry combo. His favorite though is still the bananas. His face just lights up when he eats those. Gavin is a great sleeper as well. He generally goes to bed anytime between 6:30 and 7:30 and now typically makes it till around 6am the next morning....but every now and then he'll wake up for a bottle around 3 or 4. We are beyond blessed. I feel like I need a new word for blessed. :)

Here are some precious pictures of our adorable miracle.

Bathtub graduation...

If there is such a thing....Gavin graduated last week. From the kitchen sink "fit over the sink tub"....to the real bathtub. :) He LOVES the water. Here are a few cute pictures from the first bath.

Gavin's first Easter

Wow, I got behind on my blogging!!! A couple weeks ago we celebrated Easter out at the farm. Gavin got to experience his first family Easter egg hunt! Pictures are better than words, so I will let them tell the story.

Then Easter morning came and the Easter Bunny had come to see him!!!

And a few other pics from the weekend....the baby chick cupcakes I made, and a sweet family picture (even though Gavin isn't looking at the camera...)
