Dear Gavin

Dear Gavin,

I miss you so much today.

Every time the fall comes around my thoughts turn to you.

Well, I always think about you - it is like breathing - totally innate.

I love you.

I just want you to know that.


Your Momma

Bailey Family Weekend

We had a fabulous weekend with Jason's family at my parents' cabin this last weekend.

Jack had such a wonderful time his cousins.

Here are a few pictures of the fun we had!

Bumbo Butt

Wanna see something hilarious?

Look at how this Bumbo Seat is stuck on Owen.

Why does he get stuck, you may ask . . . . . . cause of these thighs!

Told ya it was funny!

My Water Babies

The dog days of summer are upon us right now here in Vegas.

What do you do when it is 110 degrees?

You stay inside or go swimming - those are your two options.

The first option can only last for so long with two busy boys!

So we have spent a lot of time at my parents' house swimming to cool down and expend lots of energy.

Jack wasn't too hot on swim lessons this year, but he has sure warmed up to the idea of the pool since then!

Jack's Big Boy Room

We spent a good part of the month of August working on Jack's Big Boy Room. We have been making a really big deal out of it so he will be excited to give up the crib and move into a new room.

He is excited.

But has he moved yet?



Cause I am not ready yet!

My baby is growing up!

"Take A Picture Mom!"

This morning we put Owen in Jack's bed with him to play for a minute. Jack seized Owen's head, smiled and said, "Take a picture Mom!"

Look at Owen's face!

Girls' Night Out!

This last weekend we had a girls' night out with my sisters and my mom. We went to Max Brenner's Chocolate in the Forum Shops, had a small spending spree at Mac and then made jewelry boards when we got home! SO much fun!

Love these girls!!

We thought that our jewelry boards reflected our personalities pretty well!

Line 'Em Up!

Jack has a "thing" right now about lining up his toys, cars, just about anything! Jason has been taking pictures here and there of the different ways Jack has been organizing his stuff.

He is very meticulous . . .

Owen Is Five Months Old!

This cute rolly-polly is five months old!

He has been such a delight and joy in our lives.

Seriously, I wish I could just sit and cuddle him all day long!

Jack loves him so much and it is fun to watch brotherly love develop between them.

This month Owen:

weighs 17 lbs 7 oz (68%)

is inches 26 3/4 (80%)

had his head buzzed

has started drinking formula more often
has attempted rice cereal a few times

rolls over from tummy to back both ways

sits up on his own for a minute or two before he falls over

loves to swing and go swimming

loves it when Jack pushed him around in the walker

has found his voice - and it is LOUD

has started waking up in the night again . . . ugh

screams a blood curdling scream if Jack comes near him and no one else is in the room
