Happy Fourth Birthday, Gavin! (Part two)...

Happy fourth birthday, Gavin!!
Today was a fun day with you. You were so happy all day long - showing your cute little dimples left and right!

The morning started off with Mommy's traditional birthday wake up. It's like the every day wake up, minus the sign and the "Happy Birthday" song!

After getting dressed, I revealed your birthday present. We got you the "Turn and Learn Magnetic Gears" from Lakeshore. We paired it with the "Stand-Up Magnetic Design Center."

You love to spin things. When these gears are connected - if you spin one, they all spin! It's bright and colorful and could be a great therapy tool. There are a multitude of ways we could play with this! Your little brother loves it, too!

Your Daddy, brother and I love you so much, Gavin. There's not a day that goes by that you don't make us smile...

There's not a day that goes by that you don't make us proud...

There's not a day that goes by that I don't think about where you were...and how bad it was at times...

...and feel enormous pride that I birthed such a strong, determined, courageous child.

There are some days that I worry that I'm not the Mommy I thought I would be...

But, Gavin, there's not a day that goes by that your little smile...and your incredible accomplishments...make me remember that you made me the Mommy I needed to be.

You saved my life in so many ways. And there's not a day that goes by that I don't thank God for entrusting your life to me.

I love you, Bugaboo. Happy, happy birthday.


Oh, and p.s.! Your birthday video will debut on Monday - we want your birthday party footage to be included!


  1. happy birthday, gavin!

  2. Happy Birthday to your brave little man!

  3. What an amazing little man Gavin is. I found you through Francesca's site and your family is beautiful. I lost a daughter as well and I just read the heartbreaking story of Darcy Claire. If you are like me, your loss makes these birthdays that much more precious. Hope you all enjoyed the day.
