15 Month Checkup

Gavin went last week for his 15 month checkup. I can't believe how big he is already! He is turning into a boy, it is really sad (to his mom at least). He is talking so much lately. He says Mama, Dadda, Doggy, Woof Woof, Duck, Baba (for a drink), MiMi (for his blankie) Pees (please), and of course No. He can nod his head for yes and no. He is running and climbing and getting into things left and right.

At his appointment he weighed 29.5 lbs (95th percentile) and was 33.5" tall (90th percentile). He is a big boy just like Talan was at his age.

Here is a picture of him at his appointment, right before the nurse gave him 4 shots! Poor little guy had no idea what he was in for. Look how cute the little gown is that they made him wear!
After his shots he had to go get some blood drawn so they could test his iron levels...lets just say he was not a happy camper for the rest of the night...

And just because I think its fun to compare...
Gavin 15 Months
Talan 15 Months

Crazy how 2 kids can look so different yet so alike!

Belated 4th of July

Since my plan is to get my blog binded into a book at the end of the year, I figure I better go back and put some pictures of stuff that I missed! I never print out any of my pictures (bad mommy) so they are all on my computer, this will allow me to have a hard copy of them!

This was the first 4th of July that we didn't go to the river in I don't know how long, (10 years??) Well not "we" as a family, more like just was my first 4th of July in 10 years staying home, 5 years as a family. Wow, that was confusing! LOL I just re-read and it didn't make sense so please just ignore this entire paragraph! 

Anyways, maybe soon this economy will pick back up soon and then we will actually go to the river 1 time this Summer? At least we have a nice pool to hang out by so I can't complain.

So, back to 4th of July, we ended up staying home and had a BBQ. AJ, Jaime, Cade and Brodie came it was lots of fun! The boys lit sparklers in the front yard. (Shhhh don't tell anyone, fireworks are illegal in Corona) Uncle AJ and Mark got into trouble with one of those really loud ones that sound like a bomb. I thought for sure the cops were going to come...Martin boys and their fireworks, I tell ya!
