How to put a baby to sleep

Swing with him...
We had a great time on Saturday taking pictures and having lunch with friends. Gavin was able to play with Kyle and Keelie's fun toys he especially liked the little chair that had flashing lights (hint, hint, Grandparents). Keelie had great fun thumping Gavin over the head with a toy-Gavin did not think this was so fun...

Hail, Bugs and Turkey

Snow in Houston? No, but we did get some large hail Thanksgiving Eve. It was nice to have "Holiday" weather for a change.

As we were getting ready to leave for our friends house Thanksgiving morning I noticed Gavin chewing on something with a quizzical look on his brow. When I went to investigate I found a nice sized (dead) bug. Very nasty. I was going to include a picture but Dustin nixed that idea, he is no fun.

May and G.

Sweet Gracie (who graced us with her Chest Cake) and Lala(who graced us with her presence;))Daddy and Mommy knocked out after the tryptophan kicked in. Gavin preferred the stuffing over the turkey...Talking to the Kreitzers on the speaker phone.

The turkey finally kicks in...

Gavin's new trick...

It is still shorts weather here, supposedly the weather is going to cool down for Thanksgiving. I love the heat but honestly I am ready for it to cool off a bit.
Gavin has learned to clap and he does it with much gusto.

Long Overdue...

I have been waiting for something exciting to Blog about...

This is about as exciting as it gets...
Gavin had his 9-month appointment almost two weeks ago. He weighed in at 23 pounds, so he is now down to the more tame 75 percentile, however his head is still in the 90th...

At the State Park

Somehow I convinced Dustin to go to the State Park instead of watching the game this afternoon. It was perfect out and an awesome chance to enjoy the beautiful weather. We bought a year-long pass that gives us access into all the State and National Parks in the state of Texas. Today we went to Huntsville State Park which is only about 15 minutes away.

Skeeter went along for the ride...

Gavin chillin'...

and with Daddy.

I was more excited about the slide than Gavin.

Sweet Boy.

Random pics

It was 40 degrees this morning, weird that last week we were tubing on the lake, Texas weather is crazy. It has been nice and crisp during the day and Gavin loves his walks, and I love not sweating while doing them.

Here are a couple random pics...

Sweet Sundays...

The majority of our Sunday Afternoons are spent at the Craig Clan house. Last Sunday was cool enough to lay out a blanket and have some outside time without sweating. Sweet indeed.

I am doing a lousy job with posts! I bet I would do better if I knew ya'll were looking, so be sure to leave me a comment if you want me to keep it up!

Angie and Tony were able to spend a week with us and spoil Gavin rotten, he is now the proud owner of a new high chair and plenty of clothes. Thanks, we loved having you guys!

Gavin enjoying his new high chair...

Skeeter has been great with Gavin, he pokes, pulls, and prods, and she just lays there. When her patience is pushed she moves, but Gavin just follows right after.

B-Day Weekend

We celebrated my b-day last weekend with a nice family outing to the park. Gavin fell asleep, giving us a nice break to read and enjoy the oppressive Texas heat.

He woke up in his usual good mood and ready to go.

G's First Football Game

Our good friend is the head coach at a local High School and we were happy to attend his team's first home game. Gavin seemed to enjoy the lights, noise, and people. By the end of the game he was very ready to sleep and let us know this during the entire drive home.
