12 month stats

(love those teef!)

I'm somewhat behind on my postings...we have been jam packed with visitors and outings the last few weeks. **On a side note I am so thankful to have had a house full of family members around lately--the only downside is how darn quiet it is now.

Gavin had his 12 month check-up on March 12th.

Weight: 23lbs. 12 oz. Placing him in the 75th percentile
Length: 30 inches Placing him in the 50th percentile

He also had 2 shots at this visit. He was suppose to have the MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) but I chose to postpone those shots to a later date. I prefer to wait until he is a little older. He was a trooper during his vaccinations...he didn't even cry on the first one, but the second proved to be somewhat more painful. He shed a few tears, then was fine the rest of the day.

Gavin's abuela and abuelo visited us for 4 whole days and accompanied us to his doctor's visit. Afterwards we headed to Home Goods where we literally walked around for 3 WHOLE HOURS!!! And can you believe that my sweet baby that just had shots didn't make a peep the entire time?!?!?! I am so blessed to have such an angelic little boy...I tell Nelson all the time that the next baby has a lot to live up to, hah! But, Gavin could be the most rotten little thing on the earth and he would still be my most precious angel.

Oh! I almost forgot...Gavin is officially walking, it's very rare to see him crawling anymore. He actually started walking at around 1 year and 5 days...it's the cutest thing!

(He has the most beautiful hair...and it got the best of me...good thing I don't own any bows, lol!) Yes...I got my sweet boy, now I need my baby girl ;op!

First Birthday Bash....

I never knew how tiring hosting a birthday party could be, but it was more than worth it!!! We had Gavin's party at a park in Naples & it was a success. The weather was nice, around 68 degrees, but the constant breeze made it somewhat chilly. The them of the party was Farmyard Animals, Gav's fave song is "Old Macdonald". So the theme was fitting. He had his very own cake with black spots on it and he completely destroyed it...which is the reaction we hoped for. The kids at the party had cupcakes, also farm themed (as pictured). Nana, Papa, Abuela, and Abuelo made a special trip just for his big day...and many of his cousins, aunts, and uncles attended as well. All in all, the party was even better than anticipated...I'll let the pictures tell the rest of the story ;o).
