Today was a good day, as Gavin was mostly back to his normal happy self. He has been super fussy the last couple weeks. He was sick, then reacted to his immunizations, then was just fussy (maybe teething?). There were a lot of times he just wanted to be held and watch tv over the last couple weeks, which was actually kind of fun, since I've learned that Gavin likes to watch food network. Much better than Sesame Street. While he was fussy, Jake found one thing that always cheered Gavin up: balloons!
His birthday balloons lasted a really long time. When this picture was taken, Gavin was in the middle of a fit. He was crying and crying, until Jake handed him the balloons. Of course, when the balloons slipped out his hand he had a fit again. Gavin's new trick this week is to hand things to us. Here he is handing me his favorite playpen toy of the week, the rice cooker spatula:
Sometimes, though, he gets mad and starts throwing a fit when I actually take what he hands me. He prefers me to take it, say thank you, and then hand it back to him.
