My sweet 2 year old

Two years ago today, this little boy entered our family.

I just can’t believe how fast he is growing up. This is Gavin at his first birthday party. He was just starting to get those sweet little curls at the back of his head.

IMG_3668Now he has a head full of those curls (that I just love and I hope they never go away!) .

IMG_3651 copy He brings so much joy to our lives. He is generally, a pretty easy-going little boy, but when he wants something or doesn’t get what he wants, he has quite the temper! That is definitely one of his more challenging traits. He is, although, my little cuddle buddy. He loves to be held and will sit in your lap for a long time, especially after waking up in the morning or after his nap. He loves to give kisses and hugs. I just can’t get enough of them.

He if finally starting to talk some. He has a couple of words that he says: mama, dada, bye-bye, book, cup, juice, tay-tah (Kayla), Ah-ma (Grandma), Nana, Papa, backpack, outside, okay, and No!. His specialty, however, is phrases. It’s funny because he really doesn’t talk very much, but it’s seems that we’ve bypasses most words and have jumped right to simple sentences. He says: Here you go, Let’s go, What did I do?, Where (insert name) go?, What’s up Mama?, and I’m okay!. He also is apparently bilingual. If I ask him a yes or no question and he wants to answer, yes, he seems to be saying, “Si.” We can thank Dora and Diego for that. I also think that Gavin says a lot more than anybody can understand. Gavin is ALWAYS babbling. He is so serious about it, too. He looks at you and just babbles of a sentence. Occasionally, I can pick out a word or two. I know one day, I will miss this fun language of his.

IMG_3899 So, Happy Birthday my sweet boy! I love spending time with you and am so enjoying my this time with my little toddler. Your sister has proved that this time goes by way too fast. You can slow down a little if you want – I am in no hurry for you to grow up. Love, Mama xoxo
