Been a while

We have been so busy chasing Gaines around that we have little time left to post on the blog!  I guess that's not completely true, but I keep forgetting about it!

Gaines is now 21 months old.  He is such a mess.  He loves music and dancing.  He is obsessed with Barney (ugh).  He climbs ALL over the place.  He takes quite a few falls, but usually just jumps up and says "I OK!"  He loves to be outside, and he is all boy!  He talks a ton, and asks "what's that?" about everything!  When I tell him, he always says, "Oooh"  He says his prayers at night, then says "night night.  Love you".  He then promptly crawls out of his baby bed and comes in the den.  We have to put him back in his bed a couple of times each night.

He loves going to Dane Dane's and playing with his friends there.  He adores being the center of attention most of the time.  He can be shy at times around new people.

He is just the funniest little boy, and we are having a blast with him!

Lauren took this pic a few weeks ago.  I don't know how she got him to stand still long enough, but I love it!

Long over due!

Well, I guess we have just been too busy to post lately!  This little man keeps us hopping!  He is SO much fun.  He is talking up a storm and doing something new everyday.  He says "thank you" when you give him something, loves to dance, and loves to throw things away for us.  He's a little character.  He is now 2 days away from 17 months, and so full of himself.  He loves to climb now and push his limits with us.  He says NO a lot (and he means it!).  He loves music and dancing, too.  He's just so much fun!

Bunny pics

I'm on a roll! Wanted to post the Easter pics that Lauren took. Gaines was not interested in the bunny at all. I thought he would love it! He was more interested in an electrical wire- just like his Pop!

Long time

Gaines is almost 15 months old now! Wow! He is running, trying to jump and march, still dancing, and climbing like crazy! He is VERY active. He loves dogs and saying wuf wuf. He says mama, daddy, dog, cat, cracker, cookie, no, stop, hey, yay, out, go. He can say Mimi, g, Nannie, and pop but won't do it much because he knows we want him to. He says Jack (well ack, but...). I'm sure I'm forgetting some things.

He loves it outside and would stay out there all the time if we would let him! He loves playing with his cousins and tries to do everything they do. He and Reed are going to be big time trouble!!!! He LOVES riding in the golf cart with G and riding on the 4 wheeler with Stan. He is all boy!

Can you tell he loves his big cousin Jack?

So tired after a fun day with the Bauch 4!

Notice the mud!

Oh what a crew!!

Play date in their jammies!

I'll end with this sweet pic of my two boys! What a blessing.

Official one year old post!

Gaines is now officially 1 and a complete toddler.  I fussed at Ashley for calling him that, but I can't deny that I no longer have a baby!  He is walking all over the place.  He is so proud of himself for doing it.  He loves to go around the room kissing all his toys and his mama and daddy.  The cats even get in on a smooch or two.  You can imagine how much they love that.  He loves to be outside.  Now that he can walk, he explores all over the back yard.  He is talking more and trying to imitate things that we say.  He has 8 teeth - 4 on the bottom and 4 on the top.  He is completely off the bottle :( and, boy, that was hard on his MAMA!  At his 1 year appointment he weighed 23 pounds 4 ounces and was 29 1/2 inches long.  He had to get 4 shots, and he was FURIOUS!
