Gavin and Eli's winter photo dump

Well, I wish I had done a better job recording this past winter, but I didn't, so I am just going to do a little update post on Gavin and Eli and things that stand out from our winter.

Piano-Gavin started piano and has loved it.  He has his dad's ear for music.  It comes naturally to him, which makes me glad because it didn't ever come naturally to me.  Within the first weeks he figured out how to play his favorite song "Dynamite" with a little help from daddy.

Speaking of Dynamite, Gavin is picking up on some pop music from school and comes home singing his new favorite songs.  His absolute favorite was Dynamite.  He has it completely memorized.  He has a little dance for it.  He also likes Taylor Swift.

Hula Hoop-  I ask him what he does at recess or gym every day and he says "hulu hoop"  He has gotten pretty good at it!

He continues to love school.  He has been on a few field trips. He had a Bollywood Dance performance!

He is so excited for this baby.  He will rub my belly and say "I can't wait for August (my due date)."

He loves to make books. He switches types all the time.  He was making cook books for a while.  He made this bird a while back.  He also came up with direction on how to make a push up flower.  I didn't prompt him. He just came to me with it.

Both Eli and Gavin took some fun classes to help us through the winter!


Eli is also very excited for the baby.  He is surprisingly loving and gentle with babies.  Hopefully, he will be just as loving with his new baby brother.

He LOVES puzzles.  Sometimes with very little help he will put together 5-6 large puzzles mostly by himself all at once.  For our special time alone together he often requests that we do a "tricky puzzle."

He continues to adore Ms. Amy and Book Buddies (his preschool). I know he is learning a lot each week and that more importantly he is having fun.   Here is a picture of us on a "field trip" to the fire station. 

I love my time with him.  I am glad we will have some one on one time before the baby comes.  He melts my heart a lot of the time and he makes me want to pull my hair out the rest of the time.
