A Very Snuggly Christmas



Gage's new Christmas outfit, thanks Auntie Kay! "Does he need his big brother?" this is what Gavin says and does everytime he hears Gage cry. My boys!

Fingers and Toes








Gage has Brent's long fingers and toes for sure. His pinky toe overlapse the other toe, on his foot print it looks like he has only 4 toes on each foot. He has puppy dog hair, it is all shiny and close to his head.

Gage Cameron Davis

Gage Cameron Davis born December 4, 2008 at 4:10 pm 9lbs 8 oz, 23 inches long. Meet our sweet boy! He is so cuddly and good natured. He looks just like his big brother did, but cries much louder and eats a lot more. We had such a beautiful experience getting him here. I decided to do this one natural in the hospital, we in for such a surprise when he was this big! Brent was able to be WAY more involved and I can't tell you how amazing and patient he was. I never thought I could possibly love him more, he made the whole experience what I wanted it to be. Between Brent, my wonderful mom and the amazing nurse, it is one of the most humbling and truly beautiful experiences I have ever had the honor of being apart of. It was hard to say I would do it again right after it happened, but I have totally seen the benefits and I have to say it is way better than I expected. I would do it all over again tomorrow for Gage, I would be nervous, but I would do it. We are ecstatic and completely in love with him! Gavin was a little cautious around him at first, he was scared he as going to hurt him or make him cry so he did not want to touch him. But now that we are home, he is constantly kissing him and wanting to be near him. He asks a lot of questions and wants to know everything that Gage likes and if it is the same as the stuff he likes. Gavin is so gentle and reminds me all the time how soft I need to be. Life for me is so ideal right now, I feel so much gratitude and love.

Utah!

We love Utah!! Don't plan on coming back if you visit UT in the fall, it is so yummy! The smells and the crisp air and the mountains! We got to see all kinds of friends and family, I have to admit I considered going into labor there just to stay longer! Thanks to everyone for all the fun.







Wheeler Farm

I got some fall!


Yes, this is an actual picture I took up Big Cottonwood Canyon in Utah. We got to visit family and friends and be cooled off! So nice!

Broncos Game!









We lucked out and got some tickets from my generous brother to a Broncos game, thanks so much Todd! It was so much FUN!! I was so glad it was an indoor stadium with air conditioning.
Brent was so adorable! It was like watching a kid at Christmas. He has been a fan since he was little, but this was his first live game. I surprised him and got him some Broncos apparel and we went to a nice dinner, so it made for one awesome night. Gage (the fetus) loved it, I think. It was so loud in there, he was getting into it. I think we have another Broncos fan!

more pics



Catch up!

The Salon!! It is getting closer and closer! We are still managing to find things to hold us up, with the help of the developers and city inspection personnel. But we got all of our equipment delivered and got some treatments on the walls, and our receptionist desk in. SO COOL! I can't wait! Neither can Gage so we better hurry!



So I have melted into my routine and being busy and have not updated my blog. Here are a few things that have been going on: Gavin started school and is loving it! I am always asking him a hundred questions about what he did and what he likes and who his friends are, but he just says "I dunno." Now he just thinks it is funny cause I get all crazy when he does that. He is so so cute! What a sweet kid! There have been a few mornings where I was sick and let him sleep in until 15 minutes before school starts and he just gets right up and gets ready, no problem.

Nesting

I have hit this major nesting period in my pregnancy and I am loving it. I have so much energy and can still bend a little bit to clean things up, I have been getting so much done. The only problem is that I have been focusing so much on cleaning and organizing that I forgot that Gavin starts preschool tomorrow!! I have so much to do! I have not even helped him get that excited about it, so i hope he does not hate me tomorrow when I just drop him off! I realize every day how big he is getting and he is so independent. I have to soak in the fact that this pregnancy has gone so fast the last almost 6 months, but so has his life, next year he will be in KINDERGARTEN! It is a little sad to think in about 3 months he will no longer be our only child and our only concern. He is such a good boy! I hope the next one will follow in his foot steps. He is constantly kissing my tummy and telling him secrets, I have to take little pictures with my heart cause it will be so different so soon! We are so excited though, I need a little cuddly baby again! Is it me or is it raining babies?! There are 3 girls in my ward all due the same week and then I looked at the list for other pregnancies and there is 15! Yikes! They must be busy up there! Everyone I know is pregnant or just barely had a baby, so if you are not, think about it!

Reunions Rock!





Family reunions are like a HUGE deal in my family, not like we don't get enough of each other every week. We have to make it an organized event somewhere cool. We went to Julian, CA, a cute little mountain town with all the antique shops and bed & breakfast's on every corner. I wish we could have got a picture of the A-frame cabins we stayed in, they looked exactly like the ones on Friday the 13th! Minus the creepy factor and Brent's night with the ants, we had a really good time, thanks Kay! So nice to get out of the heat! Plus look at how cute Gavin's smile is, that is true happiness!

THE REVEALATION



So we got our ultrasound and found out that we are having another BOY!! We are ecstatic and I am so glad I saved all of Gavin's stuff. I guess I get no break on the testosterone! That is good cause I have always loved BOYS! The biggest surprise, I have not gained a pound since my pre-pregnancy weight! I guess I am glad now that I was so sick for so long, I lost a a good 10 lbs!

Disclaimer

Ok so just to avoid any misunderstanding, Cletus is not our fetus. It is just a picture I found on WebMD of a fetus the same age as ours. Sorry Kandise!

Sweet


Sorry I had to add this from one of my friends blogs, I just thought it was hilarious, thanks Annie!

Cletus the Fetus


Here it is,! OUR BABY ,I think it looks just like Brent! I just ran across this picture and I was amazed! I know this is my second kid, but it is just so crazy that my baby already looks like this! Kind of creepy, but really cool. I guess this beer belly has a reason! Can't wait!!

Still pregnant and still bored!


It was brought to my attention that my blog needs to be updated, I had to protest because there is nothing very exciting going on. I am still pregnant and hopefully past the "scary" first few months. I am feeling less sick, but still tired. And I am starting to not fit into my regular clothes. So that is fun!

Update on the salon, we are staining the floors this week and the getting the paint finished up, I will have to post some pics. It is really looking good, but I am not holding my breath for our open date, it is 2 years late as it is. Once we have some employees, I will write more.

I found all the ugly pictures of my and made a lovely compilation for you to enjoy, they are nice and small so you can't be too grossed out! Ciao!

Bun


Some of you have already seen this picture, about 7 months ago, sorry about the repeat. Anyhow, yes, this is a bun in the oven! We are locking the door on this one! We are so excited and I am feeling sicker than ever (good sign right?) I am due at the beginning of December! We are just praying that this one will decide to stay, we can't wait! Gavin says that if it is a boy it should be named "Spiky" and if it is a girl "Package". I think he has been getting too many ideas from his Dad.

A visitor!


Yeah, we finally got a visitor to the barren waste land! We got lucky enough to have Jenny and Suzy for a few days! Jenny was a trooper since she is 7 months pregnant and traveling with an almost 2 year old. Jenny, I can't tell you how nice it was to have you around, it just felt like you have always been here! It was not easy with the stairs and Suzy's sleeping schedule, but you made me so happy! I love Jenny to death! Thanks for coming!

Gavin is 4!


Our buddy is so big, he turned 4 on the 15th! He has been so much fun and keeps saying the funniest things!
5 things I love about my boy:
1- His "cute" face, on demand he makes a squishy smile and giggles.
2- "I am going to wind away!" He says that every time the wind blows hard.
3- He always has to have every toy he owns wherever he goes!
4- He is so sensitive. Anytime I get after him about something, he will say that he hurt himself and want me to hug him.
5- He is such a cookie-face, I cannot stop kissing him!!
6- one more, i can't help it, his cuddles in the morning!
He got to share his birthday with a couple cousins and then have a party with his friends. He got extremely spoiled! We are so grateful to all the people that came to share his birthday with him, we had a blast! Happy birthday, Dubs!

My sweet Mexico shoes


While we were in Mexico I had to buy some shoes for our off-shore excursion in the jungle, so we managed to find a Walmart in Puerta Villarta. All the shoes there were in Mexican sizes and Mexicans do not have big feet apparently. I had to find the biggest in the men's department and there was only one pair even that big. They were so ugly, they were the joke of the trip, but I have to say they were pretty comfortable. I think even the Mexican guides were disgusted, maybe it is just cause my feet are huge!

Cruisin' Mexico


There is so much to catch up on! We went on a cruise a few weeks ago with my family and had a blast, I love my family! Every moment we were laughing and being gross and stuffing our faces! It was the perfect amount of relaxing and fun. We went to the Mexican Riveria, Cabo, Puerta Villarta, and Mazatlan. We have to make this a new tradition, it was perfect!

I had to share


Grandma Gaye sent Gavin a "Harry Potter" scarf (she made it!), glasses, and magic wand for Easter. This is the cutest thing because he will only wear the scarf for 2 minutes at a time I think because he is like me and a little claustrophobic, but he does it all day. So he will put it on, point his wand at me and say "Ghost, specto trollum!!" And then he will run around for a minute, then take it off and it starts all over. So precious!! I just love these glasses on him, I think he looks like the little boy on "Meet the Robinson's" Thank you Grandma Gaye!! We are all enjoying it!

Easter Buddy!


Here is our cute boy with his Easter eggs. It was kind of sad because he had a fever and an ear infection this day, but still excited to find eggs!

One of the best days ever!!

Gavin was so cute before we went we told him we were going to Mickey's castle, he just kept looking for the door into this castle. He said he wanted to play with Mickey's toys. He was so precious the whole trip, I think i cried like 20 times!

Our Disney posse

Thanks to Kay, Kaitlin, Kristi, and Ella, we had a blast at Disneyland!!

Disneyland Fans


After the crazy wedding weekend we decided to make it more crazy by going to Disneyland. Thanks to my siblings, Kay and Todd, we go to take Gavin for his first trip to Disneyland! It was a blast, Brent and I had not been for 20 years!! We had so much more fun and enjoyed it more because of Gavin, loved it of course! Kay and Kaitlin joined us, as well as our tour guide and best friend Kristi. She was so great and met us out there and helped us get on the best rides the fastest. We are so grateful to everyone who made this trip possible and fun! We have never got to do a trip like that as a family.

So much fun!

These are my best girls for life! Some of my sisters and I having fun, like always!
