Life Less Ordinary

“Live a life less ordinary. Live a life extraordinary with me”

I want to write about Gavin. I want to write about how the baby he is makes me want to have another one. I want to remember how he got his two bottom teeth at the end of November and how he got his one front tooth right before Christmas. I want you to know how he babbles so freaking loud and even puts one hand up as if he’s declaring something really important while he holds on for dear life with his other hand to the TV table so he doesn’t fall over. He usually falls over. He is walking along furniture. He’s moving from the couch to his bouncy with determination.

“But it’s you and there’s no other, I do believe”

He crawled at 5 months old. He still won’t say mama, and he barely says dada. He reminds me of Luke when he looks down. I see the same giant eyelashes that remind me of broom bristles that rest on big rounded cheeks. But when he looks up, it’s different. It’s green eyes with flecks of brown instead of blue. It’s a face that lights up for different reasons.

“If I could name you in this song. Would it make you smile and sing along?”

He wants up, he wants down. He sleeps wonderfully but only on his tummy. He would never fall asleep in the middle of something. He wants his crib when he wants it. And when he wants, oh you will know it. He hasn’t fallen asleep in my arms since before he was 3 months old. He’s mad he can’t do more. He’s happy when we give him kisses. He’s happy when ever I insert his name into a song.

“The night you came into my life well it took the bones of me, took the bones of me. You blew away my storm and strife. And shook the bones of me, shook the bones of me”

Gavin makes me laugh. He doesn’t mess around. He gets to the point and I have a feeling he’s going to teach me a few things. He’s amazing. He watches his brother intently and it’s likely he’s absorbing every. single. move. He scares me but I’m not afraid of him. I’m excited for him.

“This is the goal: to get into your soul. If I could make you dance for joy”

He already dances.

Oh my life with you, oh my sweet boy. My goodness.

“Just in time to, catch a ride to, Something great, so come along and we can leave today”

“Live a life less ordinary. Live a life extraordinary with me”

    This blog is precious. Gavin is such a smart baby and is growing up so fast. I am so lucky and blessed to have met him only two weeks after he was born.

  2. I can’t believe how mobile G is so early! There is something so special about the second child that I just never would have expected and can’t even explain.
