Time Flies!

Well I don't have much to post about or any cute pictures, but today marks Gavin's 18month birthday!! 18 months! I remember when we brought him home from the hospital and telling Kurt we can make it to 1 month, lets just focus on that- then at the 1 month mark I was shocked we actually got there and said we can make it to 5 months! And now here we are at 18 months!! Gavin is growing and learning so much! He is a quiet natured child! He loves to sleep, he takes at least a 3 hour nap and sleeps from 10pm to 8am. I love it! He is not saying much, I am hoping now that he is hearing better that it will change. He does know a lot however, you can tell him to go get his socks or shoes and he knows exactly what drawer they are in. He loves his dad, that is the one word he does say! Not fair- I am the one with him all day long!! He is so tall and so skinny- most people think he is 2 1/2 or more! He loves his dog Roy, or should I say he loves to torment him! They are quite the twosome! Sunday was his second try at nursery, and he stayed the entire time!! I was so happy! I stayed with him for about 15 minutes and then snuck out. The leaders said he cried for about 30 seconds and then was over it! I just hope we can do this every Sunday!

I am so glad to be a mother and so happy for the joy that Gavin is in our lives! Of course we have our bad days too, but I wouldn't trade it for anything!!

Long week

Wow, what a week it has been. We went to Pleasant Grove on Wednesday after Kurt got off work, Gavin's surgery was scheduled for 7:30 Thursday morning, so we went and stayed with my Grandma the night before. Everything about the surgery was just great! The doctor was really great, he came and talked to us before the surgery and twice after, he was very good to explain what the procedure was and ask if we had questions. They took us to a little room while we waited for him to go into surgery, there were toys and books for him to play with, he loved it! When the doctor came to take him to surgery, Gavin jumped right into his arms and left. Not one tear!! That made me a little sad- but also happy! The procedure was about 20 minutes and then he was out and awake. The IV they left in his arm bugged him the most, once it was out he was happy and ready to go home. He was tired for about 30 minutes and then ate oatmeal, chicken nuggets, a cookie and other treats. He didn't even seem like anything had happened to him. Kids are so great that way! His nights have been a little hard since we have been back, but I am sure they will get better!

Thanks Grandma for letting us crash with you for 4 days, you are so wonderful and we love you!! Thanks to all those who called to check on him! And thanks Grandpa Seals for the Jazz van, he loves it!!
