Fun times with ELMO!

David and I we able to take Noah to see Elmo LIVE in Clemson last night. Just the three of us went, so we were so excited to give him our undivided attention. I was highly impressed with the show that Sesame Street produced. The characters are excellent dancers and kept Noah's attention the entire show. The show was well worth the money...the "extras" were a different story. They were selling $10 Elmo balloons like they were going out of style. It was nuts!

Noah and David before the show. Noah looks excited, doesn't he???

The lights and colors were awesome!

Noah was pumped that Dorothy AND Mr. Noodle were there.

He pretty much sat with his mouth open the entire show!.

*Though the show was great, I will think again before taking him to something like this at night. I don't think he settled down to sleep much before 11:30. It was a fun way to spend the rest of the night to say the least!

Gavin turned 7 months old yesterday and is now using a combo of the army crawl and the real deal. I also found him standing up in his crib last night. I guess we will need to lower his mattress again, but we literally just lowered it 2 weeks ago because he started sitting up. What can I say, my boy is advanced! Here the two boys are playing together. I am so thankful for my 2 little guys ans it warms my heart to know they are already best buds!

LIfe Part 4: Trip to St. Louis

*There are two new posts!

Mom, Noah, Gavin and I headed to St. Louis last week to visit Scott, Abatha and Nate. As usual, they are wonderful hosts and we had a great visit. Our time was filled with great food, trips to the zoo and Grant's Farm, picnics and football. Fun times were had by all!

It was a bit chilly on our train ride at Grant's Farm.

Such a sweet pic!

The two buds...they played so well together!

Aunt Ab and Nate on the train ride. What a great smile Nate!

The St. Louis Zoo is awesome. We loved seeing the two baby elephants.

Noah has a new dance. This is the face that he makes when he is breaking it down!

My attempt to get a pic of Mimi and her 3 grandbabies.

Life Part 3: Gavin is 6 months old!

I can't believe my baby boy is 6 months old! Gavin is such a gift to our family. He amazes me day after day. He has his two bottom teeth, is sitting up on his own and has the army crawl down pat.

We are now working on solid foods. He loves sweet potatoes, peas and apple sauce. He didn't really love his first try at cereal!

Noah has a new found love with his old baby toys now that Gavin is using them!

My little stud started going to Bible School one day a week. He loves wearing his "packback" as he calls it.
