Really Starting To Walk

Gavin started walking last weekend, but then he pretty much went back to crawling and furniture surfing for the most part. Today was officially the first day he really tried walking on all surfaces and in all locations. He was extremely well balanced and would even walk while holding his brother's shoes. My guess is that he'll make it all the way across the house without falling by the end of this week. He seems to be really interested in it now. In many ways, I can't wait for him to walk because he is so heavy to carry. Haha

Gavin has also starting signing. We haven't been as diligent in using signs with him. But he will yell so loud if you don't get him what he wants or put him down when he is done. So, I started signing much more and he took to it right away. It is so cute to see him sign...reminds me so much of Devin at that age. And Gavin smiles so big when we have officially "communicated" in a positive way.

This weekend was really fun with the boys. I took Devin to Jolie's birthday party at the Folsom Acquatic Center. Devin had so much fun that we were officially the last people to leave the event (even behind the birthday girl). He has already decided that is where he wants to have his birthday party. Not sure October will be ideal weather, but you know...a kid can dream. :-) Gavin took stellar naps today. Two of them of at least 2 hours each. What a good boy!

We are back to our normal routine tomorrow - work for me, school for Devin, and daycare at Grandma Casaday's for Gavin. Rich is guiding a group through Yosemite right now so we are winging it this week for the most part.
