Monthly Recap (September 2016)

Our Master Bedroom and Bathroom remodel was finished. Yay! The contractor work finished at the end of August, but we had a few small things to do ourselves. I’ll write a separate blog post on this remodel with more details. It’s a huge improvement, and we’ve been enjoying our freshly updated room.

We’ve been doing some swimming before it starts to get too cool for it. Gavin likes the water, but he’s not currently interested in learning to swim. He’d rather play and splash around with his toys than work on swimming exercises. I think Michael and I have been enjoying the pool more than Gavin. It’s so great to get in and relax for a little while.

Gavin’s an active little man, so we try to get out and do fun things. We usually go to storytime at the library each week. He really enjoys being around the other kids and doing the activities. They usually read three books and sing three or four songs… the action songs are Gavin’s favorite. We’ve gone to a couple of playdates and the park. He gets lots of time outside at home, but I still like to take him to the park when we get the chance.

It’s football season! So, we’ve been spending our Saturdays watching the LSU and Texas A&M games. Our TV is usually on whichever SEC games are being aired, but we always watch our two favorite teams. Gavin humors us and wears team colors for whichever game we’re watching.

I finished Gavin’s Age 1 photo book. I use Shutterfly for our photo books, and love how they look. I plan on doing one each year for Gavin. My goal is to update the photos each month in Shutterfly, and at the end of each month make the photo pages that display the month’s events that I want to highlight. It takes me a long time to make a photo book I’m happy with, so I think trying to keep up with it each month will be a big help. Hopefully, that’s better than doing the whole photo book at once, like I’ve been doing.

The dogs have been growing! Rocky and Java are both just over forty pounds, and still think they are lap dogs. They are loving pups that prefer to be near us all the time.

The weather was hot for most of the month… It is Texas after all. But, it feels like cooler weather is just around the corner.
Happy Fall!
