Growth (n.) the act or process, or a manner of growing; development; gradual increase.

This little boy has my heart, so I’ll warn you that this post may get long. I love being with him– he’s always happy and those blue eyes take you right in. This is my little buddy, the son of my husband’s brother and his lovely wife. He’s such a little trooper. This first year of his life has been busy with therapies and surgeries, and lots of brave visits to doctors. He’s come so far, and is doing so well since his multiple cleft palate surgeries. I’m so proud of his tenacity and little man courage. He’s such a good, happy baby. (I know he’s almost one, but he’s still a baby in my eyes…) Gavin D, we love you. Happy soon-to-be-birthday, buddy!

I’m going to start off with his jammy pictures, and then move on to his yummy cake-smashing. We had a busy time grabbing some first year images and family Christmas pictures. Truth be told, I was sick the day of Gavin’s shoot, and couldn’t even give this guy a smooch. I had to check myself a few times, not to go too close to him. This is part one of two, as there are some more family pictures to show when I have more time, when I feel better and when finals are over…:)

Here’s Mr. Blue Eyes himself. Enjoy:

And just a little look at what’s coming up:
