Here are some more wonderful pictures of my little boy!!!


So, I've finally had a chance to upload video of Gavin. So, here it is!!!

Tuesday, June 20, 2006


I am so not ready for the baby gates and closed bathroom doors. Yesterday I had the bathroom door open, and next thing I knew I heard water splashing. I yelled at Stoopid dog, thinking she was drinking out of the toilet. But no, it was Gavin, playing in the toilet. YUCK!! Hubby forgot to close the door again. We're going swimming tonight. Pookie, if you wanna go, call me at work.... 1-800-332-6776. Option 3, I think.

Anywho, Gavin's 7th tooth is coming in nicely, and I'm kinda waiting to see if the other one on the other side comes in too. There was no whining this time like last time. Last time there were bumps on the gum and stuff. This time, nothing, just whiney and running a fever.

SO I have to rant for a minute!! I am a born and raised Catholic. I go to church pretty regularly. Now the other day at church (sunday duh) they decided to start implementing all these new changes in the diocese. Now, I realize that as Catholics you have to be prepared for a certain amount of rigid order blah blah blah. BUT for the last 25 years, there have been certain things done, that they are all of a sudden changing. For instance, our priest has always sat WITH the congregation, as PART of the people, not better than the people. Now, he will no longer be allowed, he has to sit in front of church in a 'president's chair' almost like he's watching us. Also, there will be much kneeling and probably the best part of all... Sr. Sharon does't get to give Homily any more. Only priests get to preach from now on, so she's done talking. I love that. She's obnoxious and talks in circles. She could get the entire Homily done in 10 minutes, but instead decides to stretch it to 20 by talking in circles. Obnoxious. We're stop and go quicky Mass types. We like the 50 minute Mass. I think that the attempt to robotize us is ridiculous. The only thing that I like about being Catholic, is if I am away, say for Ash Wednesday. I can attend any Catholic church and not be lost. Everything is basically the same, Rigid order blah blah blah. And now I'm not sure that I even want to keep going to church. V opposed to change. But it's not like I can change churches either to get away from it, it's every church in the area. I don't know what I'm going to do yet. Maybe I'll go next week just to make sure it's dumb, then decide.

So hopefully everything went great for Christi who was moving yesterday. The excitement was killing her. Er, um I meant exhaustion. :-)

Alright enough rambling for now. Back to work!

I'm a mess!!!!

Dad did it.

Quietly playing.

So, here Christi, are some pictures. I tried to post them last week, but Blogger was being stupid. These are from a couple weeks ago, I know I need to take more.

So, over the weekend, Gavin got ANOTHER tooth. I don't understand this poor little boy's mouth. Just stuff coming in all over the place. He has more teeth than the neighbor kid who is 6 months older. I really have to hop to on his party stuff cuz I'm slacking a little. I'm pretty good and throwing things together at the last second, but damn. It's less than 2 months away. I also have to schedule his 1 year dr appt checkup thing. God I can't believe that he's almost 1 already. I can't stand mothers who say their children's ages in months.. 22 months, 27 months... but I just might be one. I don't want him to get big. This weekend, he crawled over to me, bit my hand and crawled away. I had to bust out the baby gates because I don't want him in the kitchen while I'm cooking, or in Stoopid dog's food.

I can't wait until July 7, cuz that's when my vacation starts. I'm excited. I'm not going anywhere, but it's just the point of no work for a week. But speaking of work, I have a ton of it to do, and only until about 1:30 to do it in.

Much love!! Mwah mwah! :-)

Sorry, I've been a little slack lately, and maybe fell in, just a little. It's been crazy busy here at work, so no time to diddle online, but please notice that I've found time to check everyone else's blogs. I'm keeping up with reading, just not with writing.

There has been so much happening lately. Gavin is crawling (finally) and still cruising like he'll be walking soon. Every time I say 'ma ma ma' he counters with 'da da da' and then laughs about it. He is saying 'uh-oh' but it's more 'uh-mm' but we get the point. He waves bye bye and shakes his head no. The first time he started shaking his head, he looked like Stevie Wonder, so we got him some shades. We're funny, admit it. He has now realized that he can get away from me when I'm trying to wipe his face, change his diaper, or give him a bath. He also stands up in his crib and throws everything out in the morning. He loves the pool and swims with us every time we're near a pool. I think that the best part of him crawling is that he will crawl to me, pull himself up on me, and then give me kisses, then crawl away. My sweet little boy is getting big and I'm totally not ready. I keep thinking that he's going to be big someday, but I don't want him to. I want to freeze him and keep him little.

Alot has been going on anyways lately. I've got my stupid gym class that I've been going to twice a week. I had to find a new sitter who is awesome by the way. She's wonderful. She has kids and grandkids and works at my little sister's school doing daycare. She is just a 'baby person' ya know? I love her. He likes her too. He's so spoiled by her, which is fine. I'll take spoiled over neglected.

Husband and I are fighting right now. Well, less fighting, more just he's on probation and can't have any sex. He's a little miffed about it, but he's the one that screwed up BAD. I can't go into exactly what the issue is. It's a deal-breaker though. He's lucky he is still married at this point, and no, he didn't cheat on me. It's just something that I've told him that he cannot do, no matter what. He is doing it, and I am having a hard time. He should be on his way to divorce, since that's what I told him would happen, but I can't bring myself to divorce him. I do love him, but dammit, he's dumb. So, he's on sex probation until he's done doing what he's doing. Also, it must not interfere with family time. If he wants to do this, then he has to do it on his own time, not when I want him to be home or do something with me and Gavin. So, I've been in a funk lately over it. Just lost in thought most of the time.

I need to get back on my meds because it will help alot with the depression, but this is more situational, and there isn't much to do about that. To top it off, BGS is having issues too, so we're both depressed and that doesn't work well. Normally one of us is always okay so that the other one can be icky. Not this time. It sucks. I try to call him for support and he can't give any, and same if he calls me. But since we both deal with this regularly, we know the drill. We've just never had to do it at the same time. I'm not sure some of mine isn't post partum either. Well, maybe in a round about way. My little boy is going to be 1 in August and I can't stand it. He is doing new things so quickly. I just want to snuggie him and he wants to run away. Stupid boys. :-)

Oh and wait, to top it all off, Husband lost his wallet so I've had to call and cancel all cards and stuff. It's been real fun. I know that as soon as he get everything replaced, we'll find it. That's fine since there was $20 in it. jackass.

Enough of my rambling for the day. I've update and proven that I'm still here, I swear. Just off in my own little world lately.

AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY TARYN!!! She is the sweetest little GIRL in the world.... and cute too!
