- Epiphanie Birthday Giveaway -

Have an Epiphanie is having a giveaway for a Canon 5D MarkII. So, I put together this image of Gavin "Living Life the way You Picture It" or the way he pictures it :) Happy Birthday Epiphanie!

I'm coming back

So, I realize that I haven't posted in a LONG time. Sorry for that, I'll update in a post later when the boys are napping. That's right, boys. Since I last posted, we've added to our family. Brock Grayson was born July 16th at 37 weeks! He was impatient, but I'll post more about that later. Be ready for lots of pictures! :)

Vintage Bikes and Planes

Last Sunday, we went to a vintage bike show at an old airplane hangar. The place where Jon works had a booth there, so we got in free. Sweet! :) Gavin LOVES planes, so we thought this would be perfect for him! Here are some of my favorite pictures from the day.

Summer Fun

Gav is loving this summer weather. Me, with an extra 20 lbs, not so much ;) Here are just some pictures to show some fun things we've done so far!

Sprinkler fun!

Picking Mom some "flowers"

Playing outside in just underwear... I'm sure the neighbors wonder if he ever wears clothes!

Just chillin' with Boss

Guess who got a big boy bed AND picked out his own bedding!! :)

Bubble baths

Playing at his "park" in the backyard

I love this kid :)

Time to catch up!!!

Wow! Obviously I've been busy and neglecting this blog. Let's catch up on things... I'm now almost 33 weeks! Just a little over 6 weeks until this baby gets here. Everything is perfect and the baby is still growing and healthy. Gavin is getting excited and so are we. We bought a good bit of stuff for the baby's room, plus a double stroller!!! Now, Jon just has to finish the baby's room so we can get it all in there and I will post some pictures. Here are a few belly pictures to catch up!
I went to the doctor this week. This was the first time Gav got to go with me and hear the heartbeat. He was amazed! The baby's heartbeat was 146 bpm :) still right about where Gav's was the whole pregnancy. I go back in 2 weeks for another appt. I just love this!

26 Weeks!

Hello! Well, I'm about 26 weeks pregnant, just a few more to go! I had a doctor's appointment this morning. I actually had to do the yucky glucose test. I drank the nasty orange drink and then had to wait an hour for them to take my blood. I was worried because when I took the test with Gavin, I got really sick. Today I did great! They even got my blood taken on the first poke!!

The appointment itself went great. As of right now, I've gained 11 lbs total. Dr. Chandler said that is not too much or too little, I'm right on track. We talked about me moving to KC and my concerns for when delivery time gets closer. He said that once it gets closer, we can decide what I need to do. He also told me that just when I'm getting miserably hot (and so is Summer!) that I'll have this baby and be able to enjoy the rest of summer. He told me that I wouldn't go into August and that we'll be having this baby the end of July! :) Yay! I'll post a picture later this week of my growing belly.

Just a regular update!

We are down to just days before the big move. The house still isn't packed, and I'm not quite ready. I'm definitely ready to be back with Jon though. I hate that he is missing out on most of this pregnancy and Gavin changing so fast! Gav can now talk like crazy! New favorite word: "Why?" He's so much fun!

My belly is growing like crazy! Here is a picture at 24 weeks. It's hard to believe that I'm beginning the third trimester! Won't be long until this baby is here! AHHHHH!

Easter/Spring :)

I should have posted these a long time ago, but I've been so busy! These are photos I tried to take of Gav for Easter and for Spring... the session went as usual. If you want to see all of the pictures check out my Flickr stream :)

Our big adventure!

At the beginning of April (I know I'm behind!) Gav and I took a trip to California to see my Uncle Jim, Aunt Kim and the girls. I was so nervous about the plane ride and dealing with Gavin, but he was perfect! We were so busy while we were there. We both came back home exhausted, but we can't wait to go back!

Getting ready for his first ride on the plane. He was a little nervous at this point.

This is the cool way to fly! :)


Gav and Mom at Fisherman's Wharf

Hanging out at the bay in San Fran. He loved the water and boats!

San Fran

Day 2: Monterey

He wasn't loving the beach... it was cold!

Our toes in the sand :)


At Cannery Row in Monterey. We stopped to look out at the ocean. Gorgeous!

Gav and Dari at the beach. He was happier at this beach!

Even Woody came on the trip. The maid at our hotel did this!

Checking out the dolphins at Six Flags

On this trip, we finally got to meet little Miss Enakai. Gav loved her!

My Cookie Monster

I caught the little stinker in the cookies today. So, you know me, I grabbed my camera. It was then that I decided to take advantage of the natural light coming in the window and get some shots without the flash. I hang out on a discussion board quite a bit and the ladies over there have inspired me! :) Bare with me. The first 2 are not the best, but I'm pretty satisfied with the others!

Cookie? Mouth full!What's that, Mom?
