Gavin built his first bear! He enjoyed picking out his bear, picking out the heart for the bear, and the fun stopped there. He DID NOT enjoy the noise the machine made that stuffs the bears. I guess he was still too young. He didn't need clothes for his bear, as we still had the outfits Gavin wore for Halloween last year. Here is a picture of my little bundle last October, and of Gavin with his bear wearing the outfit from last October.

Wishing a very Merry Christmas to family and friends!
It’s a time for reflection, as 2008 ends.
We’ve had a great year, full of excitement and fun
Gavin is growing up fast, even if he’s only one!
This time last year, he wore a wee Santa suit,
But now he’s walking, climbing stairs, and singing to boot!
He has learned to sleep in his crib all alone
And this Spring his obsession was buttons on the phone.
Oh, what a shock when Grammy answered the door
With Gavin following behind, army crawling on the floor
She peaked her head out, blinded by a light, she cried “oh!’
Who was the visitor? Two officers of the Five-O.
Gavin, it seems, had called 911.
I guess to report that he was having so much fun!
His punishment, no more phone, may seem outlandish,
But the remote was next to go when the TV only knew Spanish.
The keychain privilege also lost, it broke his heart
But he kept pushing the buttons that made my car start.
From restaurants, church, or sitting at home
My car would be idling in the driveway all alone.
Oh, yes, Gavin’s a handful, but he couldn’t be cuter,
Even when he’s constantly turning off the computer.
That bright blue light is too much to ignore
He pushes the button and poof! My email draft is no more.
Gavin surely does keep me on my toes
Or on the ground, in pain, after he bites HARD on my nose.
But at the end of the day, my heart he does keep.
When I see that sweet angel finally asleep!
I hope this Christmas finds you all doing fine
And best wishes for a Happy 2009!

Gavin is almost fourteen months old now and is growing up so fast!! He is finally feeding himself Cheerios. He has been feeding himself larger items for a few months now, but he has mastered the Cheerios and this has seriously increased his independence. He is such a sweet boy and is learning a lot. We have been working on "if you're happy and you know it clap your hands" for a long time and he has finally caught on to clapping his hands in the right part. He is also starting to take his first steps. The other night, he walked three steps before he sat down and started clapping for himself! Definitely cool that he is learning walking along with clapping. I wish I had a video of it! But of course, whenever I bring out the camera, he stops and stares at it...
In other news, Gavin is still wearing his nine month old size clothes, despite the fact that I feed him a lot of food. He is taking naps in his bed now, so I haven't had to leave the house lately (I used to have to coax him to sleep on a car ride). He loves going up stairs and down stairs. So, now that he loves to go in both directions each time he sees the stairs, it takes us 10-15 minutes to change floors.
He has eight teeth already and has been drooling A LOT lately so I'm awaiting the ninth tooth. He is almost always smiling and sings along to any music he hears, be it on the radio, at church, or when I'm singing. Between that and his piano playing, look out!

Gavin turns ONE today! He is such a happy little boy! He nearly fell asleep in his cake, but was too gentlemanly to get messy. He poked a couple of holes in the cake and daintily ate some bites of it off of my fork. He LOVED that everyone kept singing "Happy Birthday" to him and enjoyed pulling tissue paper out of gift bags. He weighs 19.3 pounds and is 28 inches tall.

Today Gavin is six months of age. Funny how much he's grown and yet, I haven't aged a day!! He can now sit up by himself, which was discovered quite accidentally yesterday when his cousins begged to play yet another round of "watch how Gavin sits for one second and then wobbles over to the side".
