Gavin is almost a year old. I’ve collected several photos over the past year that I have not previously posted. It’s amazing how much he’s changed. Here are photos from his first 3 months.

Gavin learns to suck on his thumb. He finally figured out how to get his thumb in his mouth.

Gavin loves to play in his gym. He recently learned how to grab his toys. (He just turned 2 months old.)

The start of our move to Bakersfield. Gavin was such a trooper during our trip. 3 days on the road would be long for anyone.

“Look at my milk beard.”


Of course, Gavin had more fun with the paper grass in the basket than with his new book or the rabbit his Grandma Toni and Grandpa Rick gave him. The things that make the most mess are always the most fun.

Our little couch potato. Gavin discovered the tv right before we moved from Seattle. No matter where he is sitting he will find the tv.

I can’t believe this year has gone by so fast. It seems like you were only a small baby for a brief moment and I’m afraid before we know it you will be all grown up. But, “Ma-ma” and “Da-da” are enjoying every minute with you.

Baby Bear, always remember your family, mother, and I love you with all our hearts! We are looking forward to all the adventures we get to spend together in the future. Thank you for blessing our lives with such joy.
