Funny boy, sweet baby

Gavin has this thing with his diapers. It's simultaneously hilarious and annoying.

See the two styles that come in the Kirkland box? Gavin will only wear the style on the left -- the diaper with the little birdie on the front. Only about a third of the 168 diapers in the box have birdies. I'm not sure what will happen when the birdies are gone. I might have to get out a marker and add birdies to those that remain.

Gavin has also become obsessed with Yo Gabba Gabba on TV. I'll admit that I really like this show myself, and not just because Gavin will sit and watch an entire episode while I get ready in the morning. Gavin, aka Mr. Complete Sentences, will ask, "Can I watch Yo Gabba in your bed?" I almost always agree.

In other news, Lexi cut her first tooth this week! Teeth are on the list of slow-to-come developments that haven't worried me a bit. I'm happy about the delay for my own comfort, but I do look forward to the adorable change in her smile. I think her second tooth will arrive shortly.

Lexi has also begun to pull herself up to things. First it was the laundry basket, then a moving box, and last night, her crib rail. Time to move the mattress down!

I'm happy to see her grins in the crib, since last week I introduced the cry-it-out routine at bedtime. Unlike her siblings, Lexi caught on quickly. On the first night she cried for half an hour, but within a few days she hardly fussed at all at bedtime. A few times she has gone to sleep without a peep! The sound machine she got for Christmas might be helping. She sleeps from about 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. with one or two interruptions. We'll work on the night feedings steps to better sleep!
