Growing Boy 4 Months

You are getting pretty chubby and weigh about 16lbs. You have so many different facial expressions and they change in seconds.Your new favorite thing to do is stick your tongue out, usually right after you smile. If we aren't paying attention to you, you stick it out and wait for us to look at you and you can tell you are smiling behind that tongue. You prefer being naked. You are getting much stronger and closer to sitting up all on your own. You like to stand a lot still while we hold you and only spend a few minutes in you johnny jump up or Little Einsteins standing toy. When we put you in the Bumbo now we have to stay very close because you will arch your back to get out and try to stand. You aren't screaming as much as you were, instead just talking more to us. You prefer to watch what your brother is doing over any of us. You like it when he is being silly or even playing rough with you. When your brother isn't happy you aren't happy, if he cries you do too. You also like putting your feet in the water at water world and love the shower. I haven't put you all the way in the water at water world because it is pretty cold. You are still a pretty cuddly boy when you are tired :) You like to chew in your finger, either your thumb, a couple fingers, fist or all of them.

Breakfast Picnic

Gavin has been asking to have a picnic on our front porch for some time now. He's been sick this week with croup so we've been in the house quite a bit. So I thought having a picnic for breakfast might be a good way to get us outside.

Children's Paradise Party

Our friend had a Children's Paradise Party yesterday. Each child had to bring a picture they drew of them self in paradise and then they got to pick out a stuffed animal. Gavin picked out a pelican. They had rabbits for petting along with their pet chickens and donkeys and ponies to ride. They also had great food and a jumpy castle for the kids.

Family Worship

As part of our family worship this week Gavin painted a picture of himself in paradise to take to the paradise party he is going to this weekend. We talked about the Bible's hope of living in paradise and tried to make the painting fun with different paint brushes.

Gavin wants to ride on an elephant, says I'm going to ride on a giraffe and Clint is going to ride on a bear. I'll have to ask him what Liam is going to ride on again, I can't remember what he said.

Eating at Cherry Cricket-...Gavin loved the hockey rink painted on the ceiling.
