There is something so bittersweet about watching your last baby grow up and learn new things. On one hand each stage is so much fun. His personality is showing and we are just so in love with him. On the other hand, all his "firsts" will be our family's lasts. I won't get to watch another baby take his first steps but let me tell you this, I am looking forward to a NO DIAPER household.
Gavin is 14 months now and full of life. He wants to walk everywhere and even tries to run but his balance isn't quite where it needs to be. He eats pretty much everything you put in front of him except meat. He thinks his biggest brothers are the best and loves to hang out in their rooms when they're at school. He is also finding his voice and letting us know what's up.
I just love this age. He wants to be held and loved on but is also learning his independence. Time just sucks and I wish it would slow down a bit so I can just enjoy him in all his babyness (yeah not really a word) just a little longer.
For the holidays, we drove west to California to be with our family and friends. In a way it was weird to be back. We don't live there anymore but its still very familiar. It also doesn't feel like home now.
While there we enjoyed the sunny weather, yummy food, hanging out with our close friends, time with family and each other. The boys had a blast visiting places we would frequent and acted like it was their first going to these places which was really funny.
I took very little pictures (we were very busy!) but I still love what I did capture.
Walking around Dana Point.
Play dates and pool time.
Christmas with their cousins.
A fun day at Legoland. They even got to bring their cousin along!
This trip really did come at a perfect time. We just needed to be surrounded by people who know and love us. We hope in the future that our family and friends come out to see us! There is your invitations guys, if we haven't told you yet. :)
Wow! What a crazy year we had in 2014. Good but crazy. The biggest, hardest and best decision we made was moving our family to Colorado. We look forward to what this new year brings for us and all the adventures we will take together.
