It started with pain earlier in the week, while nursing Gavin and by Friday morning I felt like I had been hit by a Mack truck! Fortunately I was able to pump through it and am still successfully nursing the little man. I felt better by Saturday afternoon so the stuff they gave me was fast-acting! You can't keep a woman with two small children down - no way!
If anyone is wondering - we don't start Gavin's P.T. until a week from today, so there's no update on that yet. He has been turning his head more the other way, but the actual shape of it still looks the same, so we'll see what they say next week.
No pics tonight - I actually have not taken any of Gavin since the bumbo chair. I missed an opportunity to scrapbook this weekend since I was sick and haven't had a chance to really do any work since Gavin was born so I am feeling really behind. I hope I can get some work done soon and try to catch up.

Ben likes to sit in it too and actually fits it it somewhat. He likes to say that he and Gavin can share it. He also likes to "play" on Gavin's play mat, although here, he did not really want me to take his picture. Ben is so funny because he also likes to say that he is "little" and Gavin is "tiny."In other news, Ben did really well potty training on Sunday (still no #2) but he tinkled many times, mostly because he received a Thomas sticker after every time - hey whatever works, right?!
Lastly, Tim is Harry Potter obsessed right now. He's starting over from book #1, after reading the last one in a day and a half. Needless to say he was ready to find out how it all ended but isn't truly ready to let go! So, he shall begin again.

Today was Tim's 33rd birthday and despite the stress of the day (for both of us) I managed to make him a cake and Ben was again most happy that it was someone's birthday (mostly for the cake part) and did a stellar job of singing "Happy Birthday." Unfortunately the top layer of the cake split open for some unknown reason (sorry, no picture) and so it was deemed the "San Andreas" cake! So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY again to my sweet Tim!

And here is Ben's first attempt ever at taking a picture (the one below with Gavin and me in it). I think he did pretty good considering... Nothing that a little cropping wouldn't help out!
That's all this time. Mostly just pictures. Have fun!!

Tim had gone out there and taken a picture himself ot the same spot but the water wasn't quite as high when he did, so I thought this was more impressive! Anyway, hopefully we are in for a little break from the rain. I pray for all the people who have lost loved ones or property to all this mess. When it rains it pours!
Lastly, here is a composite picture Tim did of the boys at basically the same age. Ben was 49 days old when his picture was taken and Gavin was 51. See any resemblence? I don't really at this stage, but it at least looks to me that they could be brothers.

So... Happy Birthay to Linnie B. Alguire (a.k.a MeeMaw) and we wish you many more!!
Oh, I also have to post this picture of Ben from Saturday morning. I guess this is his version of "dress up." He has on a backpack full of toys, a borrowed Captain Feathersword hat and my puppy slippers, which he calls puppy "boots" and loves to where around the house. What a character!
