So today is the anniversary of the day that My Little G was born, two years ago. His birth story is nothing out of the ordinary except for the fact that he was born. My beautiful, wonderful, perfect second son who from the moment I saw his face, I knew would be another great love of my life.
I remember lying there in the operating room (yes, I had a c-section) feeling the pressure in my belly and knowing that one of the most amazing things was about to happen to me and my family, again. And it did.
His teachers at Parents Day Out go on and on about how cute he is and how he likes to dance and loves to do his little art projects. Here at home he loves to play with his crayons (that he got for Easter) and stickers. Oh man does he LOVE stickers! I let him have a piece of paper and he covers it with crayon squiggles and stickers. And yes, I have found a few on the wall and the floor, thankyouverymuch.
He’s always been a good sleeper and continues that trend with a good 11 hour sleep at night and a 2-3 hour nap in the afternoons. His favorite foods include blackberries, pasta, yogurt drinks, cereal, dried apples, raisins, cheese and of course any type of sweet that I may be offering. And he is willing to try just about anything and often asks for a “bite” off of my plate.
His favorite toys right now are Matchbox cars, blocks or big Legos and he carries his two fleece blankets and “Meow, meow” around a lot during the day. He also has a lot of fun with sidewalk chalk lately and at the playground he seems to like the slides the most. He loves to laugh at the family hamster in his cage and when “Hamsty” gets going on his little wheel I so enjoy hearing G chuckle as he watches.
My little guy’s smile can light up any room and does every time he flashes it here at our house. He’s a happy child and a sweet, sweet boy and I am lucky to be his mother and be able to spend every day with him.
To My Gavin,
I hope you have a wonderful day today and a great little party on Saturday. You are a bright light in our lives and so many people love you and celebrate your life today. I love you so much and always,
Just some of my favorite pics from the last year…
