Happy 3rd Birthday Gavin!

Well, now that the craziness of the holidays is over and I am starting to feel human again, I am going to attempt to get caught up on how we rounded out 2010. 

On October 22nd, my sweet boy turned 3!  He has grown and changed so much over the past year – it just amazes me.  One year ago, he said maybe 5-10 words – now I can’t get him to stop talking! Smile  He is such a fun and energetic little boy.  He brings so much joy to our family and we love him so incredibly much!


Gavin had a breakfast of blueberry muffins – he just LOVES “cake.”  Smile


The best close up picture that I could get of the birthday boy at his party.  He was just too busy to sit still.


My crazy and sweet little kiddos.


Gavin starting to open his presents…..


He got some Buzz and Woody Potato Heads from his Aunt Ashley.  The were a big hit!  (Almost too the point where he wouldn’t open anything else!)IMGP3288

We were able to encourage him however to move on to the others.


This is another grouping of some of his faves.  He got some Buzz wings from his Grandma.  Jeremy, Mikayla and I got him a Buzz and Woody that talk.  He LOVES them and still plays with him daily.

Birthdays with my children are always bittersweet.  I just love to see them grow and develop into little people….I just wish it wasn’t so fast!

Fun side note for personal documentation….it was the very next day that we found out we were pregnant!  I woke up the next morning throwing up.  I knew there was a possibility I was pregnant, but it was still a little early for a home pregnancy test.  I went to the doctor’s office where I found out I had a kidney infection (the cause of the vomiting) and that I was pregnant!  It was a pretty nice way to find out I was sick…I just didn’t seem to care as much anymore.
