When “Little G” was born I watched the American Idol finale from my hospital bed while I continued to learn to nurse him. I always remember who won that year, it was Jordan Sparks. She beat out Blake (cannot remember his last name) and I was a little sad about that. But I was happy to have a new baby so I didn’t REALLY care.
Gavin’s birth and entrance into our lives catapulted me into this whole “stay at home mom” business. I left my job 3 days before I had my scheduled c-section with him. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.
It’s a miracle I did not gobble up this cute little nugget when he was a baby!!
He was my only exclusive nurser and has been a snuggle bug ever since. He comes with big dimpled smiles and lots of emotion and his Daddy’s face and super strong bear hugs.
He shows strength and progress in his gymnastics class but this week informed me that he would rather take art class so we will start that in the fall. He LOVES art and he’s pretty darn good at it so… I have to let him lead in that way. Although I will miss watching his weekly back bends, walks across the balance beam and cart wheels.
His art project from last summer’s art camp
He loves his brother fiercely and likes to play with his sister
He could probably play minecraft all day if I would let him and enjoys LEGOs and riding his bike and he is reading like a champ!
