In the Good Old Summer Time

The girls are also, like their brother Gavin, are growing like weeds right before my very eyes! We are in the trenches of potty training and they are both doing really well, even though we have accidents here and there they are my "Potty Rock Stars" as I like to call them. The picture below is after their first hair cut (more like trim) I gave them... I figure as long as it is just a trim I can save some money and do it myself.
And like I mention before the girls are really enjoying the local pool here... Once they are done and we are in the car they pass out before we get home, and we live like 2 miles from the pool... so cute!

Also against my own advice I started Gavin on solid foods and I must admit he is really enjoying it termindously... I can't feed him fast enough.
Mr. Man (aka Gavin) is already making his first attempts to crawl! Now this one is a phase I have been dreading as that means he can get into everything and have access to more then the little area around him... it's going to be a trip w/the girls and him running are around ...
Mr. Man has also decided that he can now sit on his own and he is loving every minute of being a big boy!
Oh, and here are Mr. Man's stats from his 6 month appointment this week:
17lb 5oz (47th%)
27 inchs long (65th%)
Healthy as a horse and happy as ever!

News Flash!

Gavin turned 6 months, today! Wow, where did half a year go, as Reed put it? My little baby is growing up fast! He can roll all over the place and he has his first two bottom teeth, and laughs at everyone who talks to him. He loves his toys and being tossed in the air and his naps! We haven't started him on solid foods yet, because feeding babies this young solid food is just a long production and a huge mess, so we are going to wait until we feel it is more necessary than just another stage to go through.

The kiddo's and I have been enjoying the local pool at the Frisco Athletic Club up the street, and at some point they will get to enjoy the daycare center and let mommy have a break.

My mom came in for a visit and that was wonderful to have her so close again that she can come over more often, even if she is 2 hours a way, it beats 22 hours away. She brought me some delicious farm fresh eggs, we love it!

And that's about it! Sorry our life isn't any more interesting than that.

Its Been a While... Sorry About That!

Let's see... I left off with Gavin turning 4 months old... well now he isalmost 6 months now and still such a beautiful addition to our brood! We weighed him the other day and he is a manly 17.5 lbs and has his first tooth already in! He is rolling over both ways now and he is all over the place! He loves his sisters and laughs at them every time he sees them! He is also already trying to sit up on his own but I think he a still a few weeks off from mastering it!

Gavin @ 5 months

Also on June 10th we moved into our new house in Frisco, TX! We have been unpacking and getting settled in for a while now. We couldn't be any happier living closer to all of our friends and family again. Makes me wonder why we ever moved in the first place.

The girls are also growing like weeds and loving being close to their grandparents and their aunts/uncles/cousins again! They have been having a blast!

The twins are also on our second attempt, as it had to be halted the last time b/c of all the stresses of moving to Texas, to potty train and things are going really well. We have a few accidents here and there but overall they are potty training champs! GraceKaylee

Sorry I wish I had more time to post more pictures and give more detail, but life is going at such an incredible pace I just can barely keep up.
