Gavin on the Move!

Yesterday I laid Gavin down on the floor to play. I left the room for about 10 minutes and when I came back he wasn't where I had placed him! Gavin and I were the only ones home, so I was quite confused for a minute! Then I realized that he must have actually moved himself! Here are some pictures to prove it!







This is where he started out.







And, this is where he ended up!





This may not look like such a feat for a 2 year old, but this is HUGE for Gavin! This gives me so much hope! I'm such a proud momma! And, I think Gavin was quite proud of himself as well!



Oh, by the way, Gavin was on the move a couple of weeks ago as well. I laid him on the couch playing with his brothers, feeling confident that he'd stay right where I left him. I walked away for a few minutes and the next thing I heard was a thud and the boys yelling that Gavin had fallen off the couch! I ran in the room to find him on the floor, wiggling and talking up a storm! He didn't cry or seem fazed by it at all! His brothers said that he wanted to practice sky diving! I guess I better be more careful from now on! This makes me SO happy! :)

I am a little concerned about a cough that he has had for the last week or so. So far he's tolerating it well and is not having any breathing difficulties, but in the past this has put him in the hospital. Please pray that he can get over this cough and stay OUT of the hospital! Thank you!


"Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time forth and forevermore! From the rising of the sun to its going down the Lord's name is to be praised!" Psalm 113:2-3

Gavin has the best of examples of "on the move" with his three big brothers. Who knows what he'll be doing as he copies them!

This is great! We'll pray that his cough goes away.

Way to go, Gavin! Look out, mom! He certainly looks proud of himself in the photos.

Praying the Gavin's pesky cough goes away and that he won't have any problems. He can't go in the hospital -- he has too many fans waiting to see him on the 11th!

Looking forward to seeing all of you then.

Love,
Kimberly
