Gavin's 2 year stats

I know, this was promised like a month ago. Well with baby #2's arrival nearing I figured I had better blog about my little man before his 3rd birthday.

Gavin is 33 inches tall and in the 25-50 percentile. Still not playing for the NBA, but at least he might not be as short as his mom.

He is at 25 lbs, which is in the 10-25 percentile.

His head measurements have held out at the 25-50 percentile. So all in all, he is growing good and they continue to let us keep him. However, we had a rough time with shots. He god two of them and for days after words he kept telling us he did not like the doctor and he hurt his leg. But that memory has seemed to fade and he has moved on to missing his temporary Tiger tattoo he got from Milford Fun Days last weekend. He is very sad that it washed off (with mommies help) in the bath tub. Oh well he can get another one some other time. Maybe if we visit the State Fair this weekend we can get him one.

As far as other baby news, we have been having weekly doctor visits for a few weeks now. And the count down is ...counting down!!! I have my last visit Monday the 31st. Then the next week will come baby! Gavin is getting more excited, he can feel it sometimes if he will sit still for long enough. :) I ask him what he wants to name the baby and usually he goes through all of his friends at daycare, then wrinkles his nose and says "noooo." We hope that he saying 'excited' about baby....we will see!

Take care blog land!

One year

Today marks one year since my mom passed away. So many emotions. And it doesn't seem real at times. I imagine just picking up the phone and she is there. To talk to, to laugh with, to cry with. As more and more time passes I am understanding what people were saying at her funeral~that it gets easier with time. Not that you ever get over it, it just seems less raw some days. I miss her like crazy every day and wish that Gavin would talk about grandma Stella the way he does about his other grandma's. And as I get mad that HE took her so young, I remember that she is pain free watching over us all. I have an angel in my garden next to a sign my sister in law gave me and when I am out watering or weeding I do think of her as my guardian angel. I just wish she was still here on earth.

With this new baby coming in a month or so, I am missing her more and wishing I would have had her in the room when Gavin was born or at least asked her to come into Lincoln and see him late that night he was born, instead of asking her to let me rest and come the next day. I don't want to call them regrets because it was a wonderful experience just having Brian and I there for our first born, lets just say knowing what I know now I would want a do over. Is that weird? Oh well.

We are hanging in here, keep checking back as I will be updating more. I have some stats from Gavin's 2 year appointment and baby stats as my appointments are getting more and more frequent! And of course there will be announcements when the baby arrives. Thanks for checking on us.

Love the Wiechman's~Soon to be family of 5!
