finally finished this..10 days late..
Gavin Thomas-Happy 1st Birthday! I swear it was just yesterday you were set in my arms, eyes wide open and whimpering. The year has flown by..far, too quickly. We have enjoyed every minute of watching you grow. You are the most loving baby I have ever met. You love to be held, snuggled, are attached to your pacifier and blankie. Daddy and I simply adore watching you interact with your brother. We love you every minute of every day and can not wait to see who you become. Love-Mama
~Nighttime sleep is hit or miss. Youll have a good few weeks of sleeping through the night..and then itll be days and days of waking. You usually sleep 7:30/8 until 6/6:30. You are an early riser, even if we keep you up later at night.
~You recently went up to size 3 diaper.
~That blankie is the love of your life. You want us to grab it out of the crib when we take you out. It comforts you instantly. You see it, run to it and smother your face into it.
~You drink about 4 bottles of milk during the day. I warm it up a bit for you. You drink water and love it. Weve never given you juice. Blame it on your big brother who wont drink water!
~Your favorite foods are kiwi, strawberries, jelly sandwich, mac and cheese, corn, and bananas.
~You are SO friendly. You wave at strangers and say hi and want to socialize with everyone.
~You always sleep on your belly. Sometimes your butt is in the air.
~Trevor is the funniest person alive, in your eyes.
~You are a good mix of Mamas boy and Daddys buddy. You love to be held and cuddled.
~You love the bath and splash, splash, splash!
~You are obsessed with brushing your teeth! You will point to the medicine cabinet and say Ahh, ahh until we brush them.
~You love to climb stairs! If we play in the basement, I have to block them..otherwise, you are running over there every 2 seconds.
~Its so much fun to take you places now that youre a big boy and play. I cant wait to get you outside this Spring!
WE LOVE YOU, GTR! You were worth every minute we waited, every tear we cried, every time our hearts broke a little more..you would do it again & again & again. We look forward to the next year..hearing you talk, having a fun summer and watching you become a big brother. Even then, you will always be MY baby.
