Gavin at 8 Months

It’s hard for me to believe that Gavin is 8 months old today.  A year ago I was anxious that my pregnant wife would come down with H1N1 and our little man’s healthy future would be compromised.  But despite my fears God protected our family and blessed us with a beautiful and healthy child.  With every month that passes I see how much Gavin is changing.  His laugh, his smile, his cries his coordination and his personality are always changing in ways that make him that much more…well…Gavin!  I love my little man and I love the father that God’s shaping me to be through my son.  It’s hard to believe that I could ever love another child the way I love Gavin but I’m sure that I will when the time is right.  For now, we’re exhausted at the end of the day, it’s a good exhausted though.  Gavin keeps us busy and he keeps Laura moving!  I’m thankful that we have a son to celebrate at 8 months and I am thankful for the opportunity to be a father and a husband.
