1 year, plus a little.

Well, my baby boy is now 1 years old. He's grown so much over the last year.
When he was born he was 7 lbs 15 oz. 20 3/4 in. long.
Now he is 23 lbs 4 oz and 30 inches of fantastic fun! He's getting taller and thinner ( I miss my chunky little boy)
He can say dog, Cook, and dadda. Only when he wants to of course. He also says.. WEEE and uh oh. He loves to play with balloons and a blue spatula. We love him so much and are SOOO glad he is a part of our lives!

And of course, my pictures are all screwed up and out of order. But, enjoy!

Tim made me a German Chocolate cake for my birthday. It was delicious!


Gavin was a pumpkin for Halloween and we were the farmers. We had so much fun taking him around trick or treating, and eating all of his candy!


We painted pumpkins for Halloween and one of Gavin's cousins decided that he needed a little paint job himself.



He loves bathtime. As you can tell.



Gavin playing with a box a he got for his birthday.




His enormous dog he got for his birthday..




Playing with his birthday cake. I never could get him to dig into and get real messy.


Tim wanted Gavin to have his own cake to eat for his birthday... So, he frosted and decorated it himself.

And this is the cake I made for Gavin. He loves wheels, so I thought this was appropriate. :)

10 months?

I will continally say this until the day I die... Time goes by too fast. Gavin is already 10 months and working on 11! He still has no teeth, but can effeciently get himself around. He's still a little ways away from walking, but that will come sooner that I want it too.

Our lives haven't changed much... Tim did get a new job with a company called WesTech that are out of Salt Lake. He now gets the "opportunity" to commute every day. He does take the frontrunner down so that he has some time he can read and such. The company he works for is awesome! We are very blessed to been given the opportunity to work there.

We're on the slow, painful search for a house. The houses that we can afford are short sales or foreclosures. And they my friend are not the funnest to try and get into.

Well, enjoy a few pictures. :)

We tried to put up a barrier so that Gavin couldn't get to the stairs... But, he found a way through it.

He's now getting himself in very sticky situations.

Gavin and his Daddy...


I don't think this picture needs any explaining.



And my handsome, handsome boy!















I will continually say this until the day that I die... Time does by way too fast. Gavin is already 10 months and working on 11. He st

Who Enlisted Him into the Army?

My baby is already 8 months old? Where has the time gone? He's growing up so fast and learning so much all the time! He loves to watch Signing Time and get excited whenever the intro song comes on. I'm hoping that by 9 months he'll be able to sign a few things. Gavin loves to eat by himself whenever we'll let him. He does really well with crackers and such. And last night he finally crawled! It's an army crawl that looks like he got shot in the leg.. But, it's adorable to me. And Gavin and I hiked up Waterfall Canyon this past week. I had Gavin strapped to the front of me. An extra 21 lbs made is a little more difficult than usual. But, we made it! And had fun doing it. He's such a good, sweet boy. Well enough jibber jabber. Enjoy some pictures.

Don't you love the drool?


Gavin with 2 of his youngest cousins. Mille ( 14months) and Bella (3months)
He definately won the chub award.


After feeding himself some crackers. Always a messy ordeal.


He loves to swing on Mimi's big swingset. He screams bloody murder when you
try and take him out.


And last, but not least. The ARMY CRAWL!

7 months.. Plus some

Wow... It's been WAY too long since my last post. Life has been quite busy the last few months. Been doing lots of fun things. Gavin is growing up so fast. He's rolling ALL over, laughs so cute, sits up by himself very well and is on the verge of crawling.He's a chunk already weighing over 20 lbs! I love being his Momma and everyday is a new adventure and joy. I've posted lots of pictures. ENJOY!


Gavin's first time in a pool. His cousin Josie had a little birthday party. He loved it!!







This is at about 5 months. Had to get pictures of our boy in our favorite outfits. Go yankees!








We went camping the weekend before the 4th of July, Gavin liked the 4-wheelin. We tuckered him right out.




Go CHARGERS!


We went up my aunt's cabin over the 4th and had loads of fun with my entire family! I wish i blogged more than i could put up more pictures.

4 1/2 months

Man, I thought that since I had a baby and had a little more time at home that I could be better at this blogging business. Apparently not. Just a few things that we love about our sweet little baby:
He sleeps usually from 9:30-10:00pm to 6:00-7:00am.
He only cries if he's hungry, tired or something is wrong. He's the sweetest boy with the sweetest personality.
He is learning so fast. He is learning to grab onto things and loves to stick them in his mouth (of course)
He's learning to scoot himself while on his back across the floor.
He loves his Papa. He will giggle and smile at him all the time.
He has the sweetest sounding giggle. We love it!
I absolutely love being a Mom. It's the best job in the world!
And now a few pictures for your pleasure.


This is my niece and nephew (Maddie and Tucker) holding their new baby sister only a few hours after she was born. Isabella Christiansen was born April 26, 2010 at 4:30pm. We're so excited that she's here!

Isabella aka. Bella or Izzy (if I have my way :) )

She looks just like her daddy.


We took a trip up to Bear Lake this last weekend and had wonderful time.




Me and my sweet boy at Bear Lake



Such a tired boy, sleeping in the car.


Eating his first solid foods.. Prunes- MMmmm he really did like them. BUt, had 4 poopy diapers shortly after.




He still has to fit into this hat, but he's sure cute in a hat!

Long time coming...

So, after last Saturday I no longer am an Event Manager at the Ogden Eccles Conference Center. It's been a long time coming and it feels pretty good. Now I can focus on being a mom and doing the best job in the world. I love being able to stay home with my boy and watch him grow. It's been a while since my last post, so there are quite a few pictures from the last month.
I can't believe my baby is now 3 months old!



Helping mommy make quacamole.

A Sunday walk.



First time in the hot tub. Good thing I invested in Swim diapers. That diaper couldn't hold anything else in it.


Gavin's blessing day. We blessed him on March 7. He was so tired so we didn't get very many good pictures.










First time in his Bumbo.




First time in his jumper. He's already grown so much since this picture!

It's the simple things.

I am still an amature at this blogging thing.. HOpefully one day I'll get better. With that the first couple of photos are pictures of Gavin at 3 weeks, Tim's sister did them and there are lots, these are a few of my favorites. The dialouge is down at the bottom.












































































It's definately the simple things in life that we appreciate and love. Our little boy turned 2 months yesterday! 2 months already! I can't believe it, time has flown by so fast. He's learning so much and doing more and more every day. He will now sleep through the night (which he's been doing since he was about 7 weeks old). He'll eat at about 9 or 9:30 then sleep from about 10pm to 6-7am. It's wonderful! My only problem is that I'm not use to sleeping that long and still wake up a lot during the night. He's smiling more and more everyday and it's so stinkin cute! Gavin also had his 2 months check up and his stats are:
Weight: 11 lbs 4 oz. - 42%
Height: 24 inches- 88%
Head Circumference: 40 cm.- 53%
Other news- I told my boss that I wouldn't be coming back to work, since Tim has found a full time position with Fastenal we can get insurance. Although it's not his favorite job, it will do until we can find something that he loves. I did tell my boss that I would come back to work for 2 weeks if he needed me to. So, I will be going back on March 8 for my last 2 weeks of work. I definately have been having a hard time with the thought, only because I love the people that I work with. I just don't think that I could handle working the hours that I worked and being a Mom, I'm stressing out about how I will be able to handle the 2 weeks I will be there.
Anyway, Enjoy some pictures!
