I've decided to embrace Gavin's natural fohawk(sp?)
I was going to help Gavin get all buckled in, but this is the point where Holden realized Gavin was leaving and started crying while saying "brother brother brother." As the van drove away and we walked back up our driveway Holden whipped around and blew a sad kiss to Gavin. We went inside and ate fruit snacks which seemed to help.
Getting on the "bus"
When Gavin got home I asked him what he learned and he said "I don't remember." Hopefully this is not a sign of things to come:)
Gavin: Mommy don't step on my feather cause it will break and I'll be really sad because I can't find another one.
I was watching a "mommy show"...Revenge...and there was a part where someone fell off a building onto a car. Gavin was playing and he saw it and said "this is a bad part, I want to watch a good part." He was really scared. He understands so much more than I give him credit for sometimes.
Our boys are growing up too fast. Here is a quick snapshot of them:
Age: 2 years 8 mos
Favorite character: Lightning McQueen
Some of my favorite things he says:
To a helicopter flying overhead: "wait for me wait for me!" (ok this one is like 6 months old, but I didn't want to forget it.)
Who is the prophet? "Thomas Monson, like Thomas the train"
He is working hard on potty training. He's had a few days with no accidents and today even made it through a trip to the park and his nap. Night training has not been attempted. He is so sweet with his little brother. He can make him laugh on command and is always worried if Holden is crying..."mommy go help him!"
Age: 8 mos
Teeth: 5. Three in the last week, and three more on the way.
Size: 12 month clothes for the last 2 months
He's got a pretty quick army crawl down. He just started pulling himself up to a standing position. He's at a stage where he can't do everything he wants to do so he is getting a little frustrated. He eats all of his pureed fruits and vegetables pretty well, although he won't eat any of the baby cereals. He usually communicates with happy high pitched screechings and dadadadas. With the exceptions of the last week, he is the happiest baby. If only he would let us sleep a little more...
Here are way too many pictures...what can I say? They're just too cute and I'm too far behind.
