Hurricane Gustav

So, I'm 4 days away from my scheduled C-section, and I'm in Jena! That's right, we've evacuated away from the hurricane. Gavin and I are at my parents house and Chad went back to Denham. Not exactly sure why, but he insisted. My brother, sister-in-law, and nephew are also here. Maybe I can get a good picture of Gavin and Asher together :) I doubt it though, because the first thing Gavin goes for is his head! Anyway, there is a mandatory evacuation of the southern half of Livingston Parish (where we live) and the rest is voluntary. We live in the northern half of Livingston Parish. There is a parish wide curfew from 10pm-6am and anyone caught out between those hours will be DETAINED AND FINED! I told Chad he better stay home! Well, that's all for now....Sorry, no pictures, but, I will update on the storm later!

Welcome Baby Asher!

Introducing Gavin's baby cousin, Asher Uriah Randall. Asher was born August 14, 2008. He weighed 8lbs 13.5oz and was 20 inches long. He's soo chubby and cute! Asher is my brother ( may have seen pics of Uncle Bubba?) and his wife's (Andrea...aka Aunt Onnie) first little boy! Some pictures posted below!
Mommy, Daddy, and baby!

I'm not sure he enjoyed bath time very much! LOL

All of this for ME!!!

Gavin got LOTS of toys and had lots of family and friends at his party! I narrowed down the pictures the best I could, but there are still alot! Gavin wasn't too into opening his presents. I opened most of them, but he definitely liked to play with them!

Did Somebody Say Cake???

Because of the insane number of pictures taken at Gavin's birthday party, I've decided to make two posts out of them. A cake post and a pictures and friends post. The second post will be MUCH longer as I don't think I'll be able to narrow down to 10 pictures like I have the cake post. Gavin had a great 1st Birthday party! Here are the pictures! (BTW, also sometime in the next week I will be posting his 1 year photos that were taken a few weeks ago.)
Aunt Sheila brought Gavin a cake on his actual birthday (Wednesday, Aug. 6).
Mickey Mouse Cake
Happy Birthday to Gavin! He thought we were all crazy singing to him! But, he didn't cry, like I thought he would!
His very own cake, that he doesn't have to share! He started out kind of slow, but then got the hang of things!
Baylee feeding him some ice cream!
"Give me some cake!"
Licking the icing off the cake pan!
"Where has this been all my life???"
"Try some Uncle Bubba! It's good, I promise!"
What was left over, after Gavin demolished it!
PS. Thanks Aunt Cousin Sister for taking pictures for me!

Happy Birthday Gavin!

Today, my sweet little boy turns 1 year old. It's hard to believe it's been a whole year since he was born! So, many things have happened and he's been through ALOT, but he is still the sweetest, most loving baby boy ever, which is why his Mamow Tony (she is his great grandmaw) calls him Sweetie Davis! He loves to give hugs and kisses and has even began to blow kisses to people in the past month or so, and believe me he blows them to everybody! He smiles all the time, all you have to do is talk to him, and he grins from ear to ear! But, trust me, he lets you know when he wants something! He's such a little person! He loves to the water, he loves dogs, and dances everytime a song comes on! He thinks Finding Nemo is funny, which is why it's been in his portable DVD player since March! He LOVES Mickey Mouse, Winnie the Pooh and Handy Manny, but will lay in the bed with me and Chad at night and watch Law and Order like it's a cartoon! He's a HUGE cuddle bug, he wants to sleep on your shoulder curled up right next to you, but unfortunately, we had to break him of that habit! He loves to play, and has hundreds of toys, but is scared of the singing animals from Valentine's Day! His favorite thing to play with is a ball. He doesn't care what kind, baseball, football, basketball, he likes to play with them all! He would stay outside all day long if someone would stay out there with him. Bye-Bye, his favorite word, and he doesn't care where he is going, he just wants to go, as long as it's daylight. No, is also a favorite word. And he even shakes his head no. It doesn't matter what you ask him, the answer it going to be no. He hates to be in the car at night. He loves corn and sweet potatoes, green beans, spaghetti, bread, cheerios, yogurt, water, grape juice and sweet tea! We are having his party this Saturday at our house. Naturally, it will be a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse theme (his favorite), Chad is going to grill hamburgers and hotdogs. You will definitely get to see tons of pictures! In the meantime, here are some pictures of him from new born til now!

C-Section Scheduled!!!

I just checked my messages on my home phone and I had a message from Lisa (my OB's nurse) and they have scheduled my c-section for Thursday, September 4, 2008 at 12:00. That is if I don't go into labor before then! Yay! Stay tuned for pictures of Gavin today. I haven't uploaded them to them to the computer yet, so I will do that tomorrow.
