Mommy wow! I'm a big boy now!!

Ok I had to post how proud I am of my little Gav man! Every day for about the past week he has been wanting to go potty more and more. So anytime he asks, I let him take his diaper off and sit on the potty for a while. I figured since he has such an interest in it, I'd get him some big boy underwear. Here he is proudly showing off his Thomas briches and let me tell you that must have done some good!
This morning he wanted to go potty so I sat him on the toilet and talked to him for a few minutes. He kept looking around so I gave him some reading material (The Ensign was the only thing I had) and that must have helped. After pointing out Jesus, who he calls Jesuh, several times he threw the magazine to me and started to grin. I smiled back and then I heard the sounds of #1 and then #2. I lost it!! I was so excited I ran into the other room screaming to Carl that, "He's doing it, he's going on the big boy potty!!!" What a dork I know. Gav was so proud and he was very thrilled to flush them bye bye. So my baby is growing up and I am so excited to keep going on the potty training! Way to go little monkey I am so proud of you!! Wish us luck!

Lots of summer fun!

Life has been crazy and I am loving summer break! Gav and I have been playing together all day everday and it is so much fun to see him learn and grow. He has been such a big helper with all of the tasks I have had lately and I really truly don't know what I would do without him!
We finally got our garden planted, but aren't expecting any great success. Gavin being the helper that he is thought he would step on plants, dig them up because he saw mommy digging up weeds and wanted to be helpful, and sit on them. Who knows maybe our little garden will be a lot stronger than we think...I don't know I didn't see anything about them withstanding the wrath of a 2 year old!
I'll keep you posted if anything grows:)

On Sunday, May 30 we got tickets to the Bees game and had a blast with my family! The weather was nice and it sure didn't hurt to see the Bees finally win it in 10 innings. Pretty much the entire game Gavin kept saying, "A baseball. A baseball" He loves baseball and loves to be outside. Grandma B and Aunt Brit took the kids to see Bumble the mascot, but Gavin started screaming and shaking and had no interest whatsoever. Poor little man, he sure liked the bee from a distance!
