It’s still hard to believe that last Sunday we celebrated Gavin’s 1st birthday! He’s a sweet, fun-loving, quiet little guy, his eyes twinkle and he brings smiles to all he meets! He loves to stand on chairs, open and close the dryer, take all the tupperware out of the drawer and sit in wash basins. During church on his birthday, he took his first steps unassisted! He’s trying to master this skill daily. I keep telling him to slow down but alas, I think it’s time that I forego my attempts and just enjoy every last fleeting moment of these baby years. If you know me well, you’ll know that this first year of life is by far my favorite… it’s just such a shame it goes by so fast! Here is a little “play-by-play” of his big day.
