Today is Gavin’s birthday!!
My sensitive, kind, energetic boy. The one who is a natural at anything he puts his mind to! When I was pregnant with him, he gave me SUCH a hard time…I threw up multiple times a day, for every day of the 32 weeks he stayed in the oven. On the day he was born, his final ultrasound revealed a little man who’d decided to turn the wrong way, and wrap himself up in the umbilical cord too. That was just the beginning of our little fighter’s journey! At a few days old, I received a phone call from his NICU nurse, asking me to delay my visit by a few hours, as Gavin had decided to yank his tubes out…she said he was one of the feistiest babies she’d worked with to date…that was when I knew he was my stubborn one!
It’s been 11 years since Gavin’s arrival, and I am so so blessed to call him my son. He’s still feisty but he’s also gentle. He sets the bar high for himself, and loves to learn new things, especially art and music- just this week he’s learned some new things in photoshop! He still lets me cuddle him (thank goodness!), though he would deny it if asked. (haha!)
I hope as he continues to grow, he knows how much he’s loved and that he can do ANYTHING he is willing to put the work into!I love this boy so much, and I know God has the perfect plans for him. <3
Happy 11th birthday, my Gavin-boy!
