He is at such a fun stage now, he is beginning to repeat sounds we make. One of his favorites is saying "ahh Ta!" in a quiet whisper voice, he also loves to say "mmmm" after a yummy bite of food. He is starting to wave at people, not sure if he knows he's saying hello/goodbye but he does know that he gets a big reaction everytime he does it!
He still loves to smile for the camera...
And still plays so hard that sometimes he needs to take a quick break...
We caved and turned the heat on last night, hope you all are staying warm in this brisk fall weather!

All in all it was a great weekend. The fall weather is here and I couldn't be happier. Long sleeved t-shirts, sweatshirts, sweaters and jeans...hooray!

Where sometimes I talk while swinging...
But most of the time...
I just relax...
Enjoy the sunshine...
And have fun!
My mom puts me in this box full of sand...
And I stare at it for a bit...
But then I reach down...
And rub my fingers through it...
When I decide it's pretty cool, I pick some up...
And I stare at it some more...
I'm not sure why it sticks to my hands...
And Mom! I'm always willing to share!

Are you poopie?
Did you go potty?
Isn't that just soooo funny?

Do you need a new diapy?
Doobie doobie doobie?
I really need to get out more often...

Currently Gavin is still doing his two breathing treatments a day which include an albuterol nebulizer treatment and CPT's. This eats up about an hour of our day, but in the evenings we wait until he is really sleeping to do them. 99% of the time he sleeps through all of them, so instead of looking it as treatments, I look at it as a half hour a day I get to spend staring at my sleeping baby :)
He takes 2 Creon 5 with small meals (rice cereal/oatmeal with fruit) and 4 Creon 5 with bottles and meals. For big meals, he eats two jars of chicken/turkey, a jar...or two...of veggies and a jar...or two...of fruit along with some water out of his sippy cup. He takes about 3-4 six ounce bottles a day. He is eating just about every 3 hours. I gave him a teething biscuit for the first time today, and he thought that was just the greatest thing ever! Of course he got it all over his face, but what food does he eat that doesn't get everywhere?!?
Tomorrow I am bringing him in for his second round of his flu shot, yuck, so I'll get to find out how tall he is and how much he weighs. Our next CF clinic visit will be toward the end of October, I really need to remember to make that appointment. Pretty soon we'll only have to go to the CF clinic every three months, unless he gets sick of course, woohoo!! I am excited to ask our pulm. about the conference she attended on the VX drugs which will affect our family in major ways! I cannot wait to see if they have some idea on a timeline of when it will reach phase four!
And just so we're all on the same page...our little boy will plan for retirement, grandkids and old age someday!

found a best friend in your stuffed zebra,
you snuggle with him every night
decided that climbing on and over things is a ton of fun!
Learned to give Louie his bone, rather than chew on it yourself
you're out for at least 2 hours
grown two bottom teeth
In less than five months you'll be a year old....
Your Mommy & Daddy can't believe how fast time flies
and we love you to the moon and back!

He also loves to "walk" all over the place while we hold his hands. At a neighbors 90th birthday celebration on Sunday (yes, she is 90 and still drives and lives on her own!) all the neighbors were shocked that he was "walking" so well already.
I've let him go for a brief second or two while he has been standing in the middle of the room and he stayed! Not long enough to get a picture though, darn, oh well that time will come soon. I know I've said it before, but I really think he's gonna be an early walker. And it is so cute to see him standing, he looks like such a big boy!
