Garrett had his first soccer game at Lake Pointe on Saturday. It was freezing and so windy, but he didn't mind one bit. Our team hadn't had a real practice yet because of all the rain, so it was really funny watching them play. They had no clue what was going on but got better as the game went on. We lost 4 to 1 and the only point our team had was scored by the other team. My mom and sister got to come and Garrett was so excited when he spotted them in the stands. Gaitley enjoyed staying warm in Mimi's lap and digging through her purse the entire game. This soccer season is going to be a learning experience for all of us because Britt and I know nothing about the sport. We are looking forward to a fun season!

This picture cracks me up.

So happy!

Gaitley's 18 month Pictures

Last weekend we ventured up to Frisco to the Town Square to take Gaitley's 18 month pictures. She wasn't too interested in smiling for us, but we did get a few keepers. It is really neat there, so if you are looking for a fun place to take pictures I would definitely try it out.

Gaitley's 18 month stats:
Weight: 23 pounds
Height: 32 inches

At 18 months, Gaitley surprises me with her vocabulary. She can say a ton of words and has started putting together two to three word sentences. She is working on her ABC's and counting. She can verbalize almost everything she needs or wants. She loves to sing and dance, play babies, read books and of course play with her big brother. She still seems like such a baby to me. I can't believe that in 12 weeks she will be a big sister!

Front Flip

Garrett mastered a front flip on the trampoline. The weather has been so beautiful lately and he has been able to spend a lot of time on the trampoline he got for Christmas. We were out there one day and I asked him if he could do a front flip. He started trying and would jump and then stop and just do a front roll. I kept trying to explain without showing him, which was very hard to do. I was a little tempted to get up on the trampoline myself but didn't think the baby would like that too much. Then finally he just did it. He was very proud of himself and couldn't wait to show everyone his new trick.
