So far these two are doing great. Gavin loves Liam and is always trying to help him if he starts to cry. He'll sing, play his guitar, dance, talk, give him a blanket, pretty much anything he can think to entertain him. And Liam loves watching Gavin and smile at him a lot.

This morning I laid Liam on the floor to help help Gavin get his pants on. I laid him on his tummy and he was fussing about it and when I looked back down at him after helping Gavin he had rolled over to his back. I can't believe he rolled over already, he must have been really upset about being on his tummy.

Here is a picture of Liam last week trying to roll over...

Liam taking a nap.

Gavin helping in the garden, hopefully I get some things planted very soon.

Gavin also helped rake and pick up the dead grass to put in our compost.

Aus trees are growing well

Strawberry plants are blooming.

Some weed with pretty flowers.

My rhubarb is getting huge.

Growing Boy 1 Month Old

I can't believe Liam is a month already. The time has flown by. He's over 11lbs and over 22 inches long already. He holds his head up really well, enjoys tummy time while on one of our chests, and likes to stand while he's awake...I remember Gavin wanting to stand alot at about 3 months, what is up with this boy?! He is talking a lot more and loves music. He sleeps best where there is noise...he's use to his brother making lots of noise I guess. Gavin is always trying to make Liam happy if he cries, which isn't too often...only when he's hungry, tired or needs changed or burped. He is sleeping longer some nights up to 5 hrs at a time before eating again. He's noticing his toys more and enjoys his swing much more than at 1st. He's out of the basinet and lays in his bed(pack n play for now) and shadow boxes a lot and also will watches his teddy bear mobile long enough for me to get ready for the day. He doesn't like keeping the blanket on at night and kicks it off.

Liam loves this bear mobile. He will stare at it and entertain himself for over an hour. He gets so excited kicking and moving his arms, that it makes the bears move.

On the way to Costco today Gavin says, "What's that thing you see and then it's gone?" I had no idea what he was talking about. Then he says, "Is it invisible or disappear?"

2 Weeks

You have outgrown all of your newborn clothes. You are too long for them all. So we've moved on to 0-3 months. You weigh 9lbs and are 21-3/4" long. Dr. Black said you are very healthy and look great. You hold your held up well for a good 30 seconds or more. You are awake a lot more during the day now too.

Gavin Says

Mom: Remind me to give you your herbs for your parasite when we get home.
Gavin: Or we can just scare them away. Or we can tell them a joke, that makes people feel better.
