5 years, 19.5 weeks, 2nd haircut, & more

Friday, Jordan and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary. I know everyone says it, but it's hard to believe that it has been five years since that ridiculously hot/humid day in DC. Trust me, if you were there, you remember the heat. Jordan and I took turns wiping sweat off of each other in between pictures. Sounds romantic huh? We decided to stick with our pretty classic celebration. I was sick during the night, the night before, so Jordan stayed home from school to let me sleep in. Then he went out to pick something up and surprised me with these gorgeous flowers.

We had never been to an Imax, so we decided to go see Inception at the Imax. It was really good, but I think I'll save the extra money next time. One thing it did not lack was loud surround sound. I would never bring a kid. In the middle of the movie, the picture stopped working, while the sound continued. They had it back up and running in about ten minutes, but we were compensated with some free passes (with restrictions). After the movie, we headed over to Macaroni Grill. Jordan took me there for our first dinner date. We haven't been there in a long time and it was really good. I forgot to have our server take a picture, so this is what we got of ourselves at home.

Contrasted with 5 years ago...

Upon arriving home, (our next door neighbor, Liz watched Gavin) we saw this.

That's right, she did our dishes, which I happen to know she really dislikes doing. She also brought over her bin of maternity clothes for me to look through (she is ridiculous right? i owe her big). Have I mentioned I'm pregnant? Well the two of you who read our blog already knew that. Here I am at 19.5 weeks.

And no post would be complete without Gavin; in fact, this is probably the least about Gavin of any post. Tonight we (Jordan) decided it was time to give Gavin another hair cut. Ok he has been telling me to for weeks and I finally agreed. His hair was kind of a mess. Looks like we forgot to get an after picture. Maybe tomorrow (that means I'll post in two months).

Also, some just for fun. He took all the stickers off of his nursery project and put them on his forehead.

He loves Bongo and Cookie Monster.

And we can't forget our visit from CC which seemed to last 10 minutes. We are so glad she made it out here and grateful for everything she gave us. Gavin likes to sit on his new potty, but hasn't discovered the real purpose yet - he just thinks he gets to sit down naked, which he likes. We're not pushing anything, just want him to start getting used to the idea. Wouldn't it be nice if he were potty trained before the new baby came? And gave up the binky? Wishful thinking, I think.
