Today, the amazing G-man turns 12. It's hard to believe that he's been a part of my life for 9 years. We met shortly after he turned 3. Suddenly there's a creature living in our house who talks about going to junior high next year in a voice that is getting much deeper. Who is that?? Gavin is such a loving, precious boys...scratch that...young man. We have had many challenging times, but those are heavily outweighed by the wonderful memories and terrific attributes he posses. He will probably remember this birthday since we have had lots of crazy winter weather, and he's gotten a little snow vaca from school. I can't express how fortunate I am to know Gavin.
