Our weekend

Last Friday night was our church Christmas party. Gavin was excited to wear his Dinosaur sweater, another much appreciated hand-me-down, for the first time. He's been into dinosaurs since PBS started a new kids show called "Dinosaur Train." He likes to put his hands up and roar like a dinosaur. It's the same motion he makes to indicate anything that's scary. Here he is pointing to the dinosaur:

At the party Gavin once again had issues with Santa. This time he refused to sit on his lap at all. Normally Gavin really likes Brother Bonner and will let him hold him but for some reason Brother Bonner in a Santa suit freaked him out.  Notice Gavin pulling his hand away:

Saturday Gavin's grandparents came to visit him. They brought him a stuffed dog that sings and dances. Gavin wasn't too sure what to think of it at first, but by Saturday night he loved it. Here he is pushing the button in its foot to turn it on:

Gavin decided the best place for the dog was sitting on his car. He likes to turn him on, put him on the car, and then dance around:

Gavin has been saying his name for about a week. It sounds like "Dadin" or "Davin." Today he started speaking in the 3rd person. Instead of saying "mine" like most toddlers when he wants something he points to it or grabs it and says "Dadin!" He also says this when I take something away from him.
