Golfin' and the Park

Mommy told me this morning that I've not been blogging as much and other's have brought it to her So, I'm taking the time to blog VERY QUICKLY this morning before we head off to church.

The pictures of Gavino golfing were taken at his cousin, Nicolas' birthday party in Naples a few weeks ago. He didn't actually do any golfing, but I had to get pics of him, because he def. had the golfer look that day!

A few days ago we took Gav to the park that's nearby, in Mt. Dora. A very quaint, cute little town. The park is placed perfectly near Lake Dora, which makes for a beautiful view while the kiddo's enjoy all the park has to offer. Gav just so happened to love the big purple and yellow dinosaurs. He really wasn't too sure about leaving them once he discovered them. We gave the swings a "go" but I think at this particular age (13 months) he prefers to be down on the ground exploring!

We're counting down the days until our next KY visit and still praying for relocation closer to the family. I hope that all of you that read this blog say a little prayer for us as well :o).

The weather here is beginning to heat up...almost 90 on the warmer days! We definitely have a beach baby on our hands. He doesn't even have the smallest amount of fear when it comes to the ocean. He heads straight for it, sits in the water, plays in the water, even tries to drink the water! He also loves playing in the sand, picking it up with both hands and throwing it as far as he can! Nelson and I both agree that Gavin has a "good arm"! At such an early age, he can throw so well, which is also something he loves to do...and he can now say "ball". Very sweet. Gavin's vocabulary now consists of ball, balloon (can't say it perfectly, but he sure does try), tree, hi, baby, mama, dada, he meows, moos, and tries to bark! It's amazing to see him learn something new everyday, I'm very blessed to be able to stay at home with him. I get to witness it all!


  1. I am so jealous of that hot weather....seriously. A lot of people hate it but I love it. TL would love it too. He's been outside so much lately, pretty much anything over 60 and I let him out!!

    Anyway, you are looking good and skinny minny. I'm jealous. I can't wait to see you all again. I SO WISH we lived closer and our little boys were playing together about 2 or 3 times a week :)

  2. Gavin definitely looks like a golfer...and he is even holding the club like a pro! Don't cry when I say this but he is definitely beginning to look like a little boy instead of a little baby (although I know he will always be your baby) :) It's good to see that he enjoys being active outside. I have always said I am going to let my child play outside more and not watch so much TV. That's what we did when we were younger! Anyway...can't wait to see Gavin in June walking around and talking a little more. And of course we are excited to see you and Nelson too!!

    Also, in regards to is a little time consuming and these days keep getting busier and busier so I know how you feel about not getting any done as often as you want!

  3. What a beautiful park! What a beautiful baby! :-)
