4 months!

Just like that, it's September. Hard to believe that my first summer is over with my new little baby (although, technically, it'll still be summer well into October here!). It's gone by SO fast. Baby Gavin is for sure out of the fourth trimester and is such a joy to be around! He's so happy all the time! You don't have to work very hard to get a smile or laugh out of him, and some people (aka Jeffrey) don't have to work at all to get them. He's discovered how to scream and squeal with delight, so our house is loud and noisy with sounds of love now with both boys. I love it. Gavin is such a mellow little baby; he doesn't even wake up crying from naps or after nighttime. Just a few little grunts to let us know that he's awake, and then he just tries to squirm out of the Miracle Blanket. Thankfully, this has been unsuccessful thus far. He's back to his old sleeping habits of only once a night, if that. So amazing. He goes down for naps (still in the swing) super easy, as well, even if they're not for that long. Despite being mellow and lazy, he's still a mover and shaker like his big brother before him. He hasn't discovered that he can roll continuously in one direction yet, but he is rolling both ways and rotating around on his blanket. I'm fairly certain the blankets will be packed away before I write this post in another month! He wants to crawl SO badly; those cars Jeffrey leaves all over the floor are super tempting to him, apparently.

This will be a big month for Gavin- first vacation out of state and first major road trip! He'll also be moving up into his big boy car seat!

Gavin's 4 Month Stats:
