Kids Growing Up

The kids are growing up so fast, it is hard to believe that Halee is 2 years old and Gavin is almost 11 months old. Gavin has four teeth that have appeared and we can see another one on his upper gums coming in. Just in the past week he has started saying “uh-oh”, not sure that is an actual word, but it is very cute. He has been saying mama and dada for several months, but not using it in the correct context. He is also on the verge of walking, he has been walking while holding on to things for a couple of months now. In just the past couple of days he has started letting go and trying to stand there.

She is definitely demonstrating her independence, she thinks that she can do anything that we do and very rarely wants our help.

1st Entry

I am pretty excited about adding the blog page to our website. It will add another way for us to communicate with all of our friends and family. If you do not know what a blog is, it is anything that anyone person wants it to be. The best way to descibe it is that it is an online journal. I will be using it for many different purposes, but the main purpose as mentioned in the title is to post any accomplishments or milestones that Halee & Gavin achieve. I want to encourage people who view any of the post to make comments about the post or post comments about what is going on in your lives so that we can keep up with everyone. I will try my best to post to the blog on a regular basis. Also on the page I will have links to things that interest me or other friends websites or blogs, if you have a website or blog please let me know and I will create a link to your page. Hope to hear from you soon!

Talk to you later
