I can’t believe my little boy is already 3 years old! It seems like yesterday that my little wiggle worm was squirming around on my lap. But, seemingly while I wasn’t looking, he grew from a helpless little baby into a vibrant, rambunctious, independent toddler. He reassures us that he is still our “baby big boy”. I’m saddened to think that he won’t be little for much longer.

Gavin got to do lots of his favorite things on his birthday. We went to see the animals at CALM in the early afternoon. Later on in the evening, we went to BJ’s to have one of his favorite meals, chicken strips and french fries. He loves to eat the skinny fries they serve with lots of ketchup while coloring and watching the TV’s all over the restaurant.

Two of his favorite people in the world joined us for dinner, his Great Grandma and Great Grandpa Ladd. We went back to their house after dinner and had cupcakes and ice cream. Aunt Susie, Sara, and Maddie joined us for the celebration. Gavin doesn’t care for either type of sweets, but he enjoyed blowing out candles and eating lots of M&M’s. He also had a blast playing with Maddie and Grandpa.
