Mother's Day and 6 Months, OH MY!

Well, when I talked to my Mom on Mother's Day she asked if it felt different because this Mother's Day I was truly a Mom for the first time! I said not really, although as I thought about it, as the talks were given in sacrament meeting, I could truly relate. I understand what it is to truly LOVE and care for a crying a baby and to have those sleepless nights. I am learning what it means to be a mother, and I don't think it is something that you ever feel that you have mastered. :) But, I am so grateful for all of the mothers in my life that have helped me to become the wife and mother that I am. So, Mom, Betsy-Mom, Grandma Reid, Grandma Jones, and Grandma Barrus I love you dearly and I am grateful for the wonderful women that you are.
And, I can't help but brag about my WONDERFUL Mother's Day Gift. I have been wanting one since I started college, and kept telling Zac that I wanted one for Christmas because it is quite pricy. But, because he works at Macy's we were able to get some extra discounts on it, so we got it for less than 50% of the normal price. YAY! It is part of my birthday as well because it is such a big gift, but I LOVE it. Thank you Sweetheart! (P.S. It was Zac's idea)

Here it is:
And, the day after Mother's Day my beautiful Baby turned 6 months! Oh my goodness how time flies! I can't believe how big he is. Isn't he just the cutest! :)
Some stats: 21lbs 9oz, just over 28in tall. He scoots around everywhere, he is so fast, but only when he wants to. He LOVES food, some favorites are squash, pears and sweet potatoes. I am sure no one worries about him not eating enough! He babbles all the time, and loves to blow bubbles with his mouth. He loves to stand up, but you have to hold on to him, and he is sitting up really well, still just a little wobbly, but he is great. We sure are enjoying the adventure of watching him grow.
Here is Gavin with Grandpa at Amanda's birthday dinner. He LOVES to pull hair, so be warned.


  1. You have got to be one of the sweetest people I have ever known! I was so touched that you would get me a baby gift! We definetly needed wipes, toys, and I LOVED the candy! I can't stop thinking about how much it made my day! You are the best and I am going to miss you!

  2. Such a cute little guy. So happy that you are doing well and happy.
