My Little Man

Gavin is such a little man these days. He has taken the fact that I can't carry him or lift heavy things very well (much better than I had ever expected!). So Sunday we had one more load of laundry to do and Chad wasn't home to carry the basket down the hall to the laundry room for me. Gavin really wanted his blanket washed, so we loaded up the basket and he pushed it all the way down the hall for me, and all the way back when we were all done. It was so cute! He's really growing up, although he still has his moments, especially when he is tired that he reverts back to tantrums and the pacifier. I was convinced he would give it up on his own, but I'm starting to think he won't.

Tomorrow we go to the dentist for the first time, which will be exciting (hopefully!). We also found out that we most likely will be closing on our house mid-December, which is SUPER exciting.

"Wow! There's a LOT of rooms in this new house!"

This is what Gavin said last weekend when we walked through the new house. We have two extra bedrooms in the basement and he was quite impressed. The painting is all done and countertops and they are starting to lay the floor. It should be done by the end of the month and we are hoping to be in it anywhere from the end of November to the end of December, it all depends on how many hoops we have to jump through with underwriting. They don't make it real easy to get a loan these days!

"They will give me candy. YES they will!"

So this is what Gavin yelled at us about 7 houses in to trick or treating Thursday night. He wanted Chad to carry him, but he wouldn't, and when he started throwing a fit, I told him they wouldn't give candy to naughty boys. He says some pretty funny things these days. He talks all the time, and he's into music, so now we are always singing in the car. He's a big fan of Justin Roberts.

He's also BIG into Power Rangers suddenly. This weekend he put on some sunglasses and ran around the apartment being the Blue Ranger. It was so beautiful out this weekend - we spent some time at the park on Saturday with friends, where Gav and Caleb rode over a mile on the trail!

On the baby front, we are at 21 weeks, and this morning I realized I've never been this pregnant at work! I'm not really loving the clothing options these days, and I have to admit, I didn't go for the "sensible" shoe option this morning. I know one of these days I'll have to give in to function over fashion, but I am holding out as long as I can. Last thursday at the doctor everything still looked great, and when I go back in another 2 weeks, they will let me know what they want to do with me. I'm not sure if I'll keep seeing them at all, or perhaps just less often.
