Okay, I have really gotten behind here lately!  So I have to do a few blogs in one.  To fill you in, Gavin made it to the final round of the baby face contest!!!! YEAH!!!!!  Thank you so much for all of the voting while I had a slight pageant mom moment!!!!  The last round of voting will begin soon, so be on the lookout for my emails and posts!!!  Gavin is finally getting some more teeth.  He has two coming in at the top.  As soon as they come on down, you know I will post some pics.  Also, he has a new word that we can understand besides mama and dada.  Last week, he was playing with his toys and he picked up his basketball and clearly said ball!!!!  I was so excited!!!  I will have to catch it on video so you guys can hear it too!!  I think that is it with Gavin.  We are headed home to Alabama tomorrow night to visit the fam and for my class reunion!  So, there should be lots to post when we get back. Here are the catch-up posts!

FAREWELL SAILBOAT…

Gavin has officially graduated from the infant room, also known as Sailboat Room.  For the last two weeks he was transitioning to the toddler room.  Each day for an hour, he would go upstairs to his new classroom as a way to help the kids get adjusted.  Well, it did not go too well for Gavin.  He was crying everyday and did not even want to go up the stairs.  Not only was it hard for Gavin, it was hard for mommy too… I had a real hard time that first week when they would tell me how he cried.  He started getting a little better last week, and as of Monday he is in his new classroom, The Disney Room, all of the time.  It has been okay this week.  His new teachers Ms. Mary and Ms. Reba are both very nice and have been a great help in getting Gavin used to the change.  Here are some pics of his last day with Ms. Jean (his first love), Ms. Lou, and Ms. Kay.  We are going to miss you all, but we appreciate all of the love you gave Gavin during his first year!!!  We can never say thanks enough!!!!

Gavin got some new pajamas for his birthday, and I thought he looked too cute to not share them with you!  When I put these on him, the first thing I thought of was JJ from Good Times!!!
