3 Months Old!

This is what my mom promised would be the "magic time," and I'd have to say we agree. Gavin smiles a ton, thinks his reflection in the mirror is the most hilarious thing ever and seems to know who we are more and more each day. He "talks" a lot, much more than he cries. He is super strong and we have a feeling that once he starts moving around, we're in trouble!

Shameless Plug!

Our friends Otto and Hathaway are open for business!

We're hoping to check out the new place ASAP and toss back a pint of "Hatha-weis"

Grey Matter

How much do I love Grey's Anatomy? So much so that I gasped and yelled at the TV during part one of the season finale last night. I think it sounded something like this: "Oh my god, it's Burke!" Don thought someone we knew had actually been harmed. When my favorite show takes the summer off I am going to have to find some other way to let my brain escape for an hour each Sunday night. There's always reading, or yard work or gourmet cooking, but none of them involve the high drama and eye candy this program provides. I found this great blog that my fellow Grey's fans should check out.

And They're Off!

Thanks to many friends who came over yesterday to watch the Kentucky Derby with us. 40 brats were consumed along with mint juleps (Thanks Troy!) and Kentucky Derby Day Pie (think gooey chocolate chip cookie in a pie crust). Four party-goers split the $24 in winnings for correctly guessing Barbaro would win the race.

I want to be on the blog!

So here I am with its true star! I was reminded at dinner with friends the other night that I need to make sure I end up in some of the baby pictures so Gavin knows I was there : )

Double Vision

When we took Gavin to the doctor this week, she took one look at father and son together and said to Don, "Well, your genes just plowed right on through didn't they?" Looks like his red hair and blue eyes might be here to stay!

Motherhood --- tales from the front

Gavin had his 2 month doctor appointment yesterday -- weighing in at 15 pounds, 10 ounces and measuring 24.3 inches.
He also got his first round of vaccinations. Don held his hands, one nurse held his legs and the other administered the shots. What did I do? I stood back and averted my eyes and cried. It was a striking moment in which I was hit by the fact that I am his mother and there was nothing I could do but listen to him cry in pain. I can only imagine how much harder parenthood is going to get, but also how much more love we're going to feel for him with each passing week.
