6 months old!

Can it be? Where has the time gone? I was never more aware of how quickly Gavin is growing and changing then when I walked in the door today from a couple days away for a camping trip with some girlfriends. There he was with that same big grin and dimple, but I swear he grew in that 48 hours and became even more of who he is.

Gavin enjoyed a night out at the soccer field to watch his Daddy play --- he decided he better suit up, too, but his skills were not needed this time. His "kit" is from Mimi and Grandad, purchased during their May trip to Scotland so Gavin could match Don's Celtics uniform.

All smiles on Wednesday afternoon...

Gavin and I drove out to visit with his Great Grandpa and Great Grandma this afternoon. He had a great time seeing them and hearing about all of their latest adventures. Here's hoping he takes after them in wanting to see the world, dance as much as possible and make lots of new friends!

Who cares about the kitchen ... I'm way cute!

Gavin is about 5 1/2 months now and is having a rough week (though I realize you can't tell from this photo). Teething to be exact. One little tooth has emerged from his bottom gums and if the experts are to be believed then the one next to it is not far beyond. That may explain the 20-minute session of writhing in pain yesterday evening... We have several teeth to go -- hopefully they won't all be so difficult for him!

Before and After

Since today was the first day in what feels like weeks that we could shut the AC off and open the windows, I decided ... why not paint the kitchen? Our kitchen has been dark blue since we moved, but we decided it was time to lighten things up and match up the walls with the rest of the dining and living areas. I got started on the priming while Gavin napped and then roped Don into the rest of the project when he got home from work. We are leaving the tape up until we're sure there's no blue showing through (will need daylight to check that), but not bad for a day's work! Now we just need to do the dishes...
