Two teeth!

Our sweet little boy is growing up so fast! In just a couple weeks he will be 8 months old. He is SO close to crawling and you can now see he has 2 very prominent teeth. He is holding his own sippy cup and just looking so grown up!!! He's just the happiest child, we are so in love with him!!

The first tooth...

I made a little discovery today.....something white and sharp in Gavin's mouth...what's that?? His first tooth! If you look real close on the bottom you can see it. :)

7 months!

The day after our finalization was Gavin's 7th month mark! It's been an eventful week in the Oliver household (today is MY birthday...the celebration just continues!)
At 7 months Gavin is sitting up very well. He looks so cute sitting up on the floor playing with his toys, he looks like such a big boy! No teeth have popped out yet, but I'm pretty sure the first one is right around the corner. Gavin is trying really hard to crawl...he's up on all 4's and rocking a lot. I'm not quite sure I'm ready for him to be mobile yet! LOL! We've got some baby proofing to do around the house!
Gavin is such a happy baby, he laughs a lot. He definitely knows his mommy and daddy and is starting to reach out for us. We've started to have a few moments of separation anxiety when someone else holds him. He LOVES to jump. It's his favorite thing. Whether in the jumper or just holding him...those legs are always wanting to jump, it's really quite funny. He's a great sleeper and a great eater. We just can't say it enough, he's such a wonderful child. We are looking forward to all of the milestones that will be happening soon. The first crawling...the first words...the first steps. So honored to be this child's mommy!!!!!


Wednesday, June 8th was a day we will remember forever! The judge said: He is forever your child! Gavin is officially an Oliver and we couldn't be happier! No one can ever take him from us and he is right where he belongs. :)
More pictures to come....but I had to share this sweet moment and announce to all my blog readers that the long awaited day has finally arrived!! Thank you all SO very much for every prayer you prayed along the way.
