I found this super cool gingerbread cookie kit at Target. It is by Crayola and it includes: cookie mix, frosting, candy eyes, paintbrushes and edible paint. The boys loved it! It was really cute. They could paint their cookies however they wanted to.
Grandma Viv came over to play (help)!
Nice job Gavin. (We did not wait long enough for the frosting to completely harden, so they had to be super gentle)
Is he not the cutest thing ever?! He is my EXTREMELY happy baby. He is so content and joyful...crazy really! The minute you say his name he opens up his mouth with a HUGE grin! That is why in every picture he looks the same. So photogenic!
He is getting so big! (almost 9 months)
Two new chompers! He now has 4, 2 on top and 2 on the bottom! He is breaking 2 more teeth now!
So as you can see, he is chewing on everything! Oh, I love him!
Welcome Ava Noel! My sister Jennifer and her husband, Will welcomed their daughter into the world on Friday, December 12th! Her big brother Addison loves sissy! We are so excited to have a girl offspring! She is beautiful! I love my new niece!
Gavin LOVED Santa! He gave him a hug and told him he wanted candy for Christmas...perfect! Parker, not so much! He was in a bad mood...hungry, sleepy and teething! Poor guy! It was fun to do the annual visit. Thanks Grandma and Papa Olynger.
3 months later...Gavin finally realized going potty was way better than having a yucky, wet diaper! We have been wearing underwear instead of diapers when we are at home for quite a while now...with plenty of accidents! I was on the verge of giving up, until yesterday! I always take his diaper off and put his underwear on when he wakes up. So we did that and he said, "I HAVE TO GO POTTY!" So I said (while I was getting breakfast ready), "Ok go, I will be right there." Then I heard, "Mommy I went poop!" I was thinking, sure you did. Then I went into the bathroom and HE DID! After that he went pee, and he even went to the movie with my mom and stayed dry! Today he went poop and pee when he got up all be himself! Could this be really happening? Is Gavin really potty trained?! I am so excited. Every time he goes on the potty, I start shouting with excitement, and he looks at me like, what is the big deal? Oh, if he only knew!
I wanted to give him something for doing such a good job on the potty, so I rummaged through the Christmas gift box and found these Spidermansippys I was going to put i n his stocking. So there you have it!
It came with 2, so Gavin said Parker needed one too! Good sharing!
(Very distracted, as usual...he loves his new sippy cup!)
