Gavin turned one on Christmas Eve. Shane's parents were coming to celebrate Christmas with us so of course we had to have a little party for Gav at our favorite pizza place- Snappy Tomato!
I know that in future years we will have to do things differently but this time we wanted to go to our Christmas Eve service so we celebrated at lunch.
Gav is a smiley little boy. He's almost always content and happy.
He loved having the extra attention!
I look at this picture and I am happy. I am so thankful to the Lord for the people in this picture. This last year has been a bit of a blur but it's been so so good.
Cake! He actually didn't eat much of it. I am not sure he liked the feeling on his hands and was not about to dive in, although the picture suggests otherwise!
At 12 months Gavin:
- is 20lbs and 27 inches
- loves toast, cheese, and scrambled eggs
- loves his bottle (we stopped them about two weeks after and he was sad!) but takes a sippy with milk well.
- does everything he can to get into tight spaces and at bookshelves and upstairs. It's his life mission.
- claps and waves bye bye and signs more. We are working on please and all done and "hi".
We LOVE you Gav! Happy First birthday buddy.
