Big brother Gavin

I wanted to share a little bit about Gavin who has been such a good big brother to Teagan since we came home 2 weeks ago. Its hard enough adjusting to a new baby in the house, but having to be separated from mom and dad on and off for over a month takes the adjusting to a whole new level! Gav is so cute and amazingly gentle around Teagan. He loves to come 'say hi' to her and stroke her head so softly. He says things like "Hi baby Teagee" "Hi sweetheart!" and "Aaww, she's so cute! She's so tiny!" The other day after trying to talk to her several times, he looked at me semi-panicked and said "Mom! Teagan doesn't know how to talk! We're gonna have to teach her!" When I asked him what words we should teach her he said,"All of them! And we're gonna have to teach her reeaal slow!" He's definitely needed extra attention since we've been home and today while I was getting ready he said,"Mom! Can you quit sprayin and combin' and come play with me please?!"

Trent has also really been helping out with pretty much everything since we've been home, which has made things much easier to handle. I definitely feel blessed to have such great men in my life! I can't wait for Teagan to grow and to watch the relationship she develops with 'our guys'.

Teagan is still doing well. Feeding is definitely a challenge and we have an appointment tommorrow with the pediatrician to see how she's progressing. I'm anxious to see what she weighs! She's still smiling and interacting with us more, and she's even starting to 'talk' a little. She lets out a little gurgle, or a goo occasionally and its so cute!
