Happy Birthday, Gavin!

Saturday, the 17th

Ten years ago today we met a brand new baby boy whom we had already named Gavin. I vividly remember his crying little face when the doctor plopped him up on my chest. I wondered, “WHO is this little guy?? WHO is he going to be?” He looked back at me maybe wondering the same thing. I was instantly in LOVE with this precious bald-headed little boy.

The early years weren’t always easy, but they were most certainly worth it. There is so so much to love about this boy, especially his sense of humor. He genuinely likes to make people laugh. William and I are still trying to figure out how that came to be! 😉

Gavin, you are loved, you are treasured, and oh so appreciated! The world is a better place with you in it! Thank you for the presence that you add to our family as a dear son and an awesome big brother, especially to your baby sister. You can just tell that Nora thinks you are REALLY cool – because you are. Happy birthday, buddy!!!!

The girls stayed home last night ~
