We have a ton of nicknames for Gavin. I call him by quite a few different names throughout the day and I'm sure that he is somewhat confused about what his name actually is! One of the names that I call him is, "Littles." He is small for his age and such a cutie, so I think that it fits him well. Joel says that Gavin doesn't appreciate being called little, so he calls him, "Big, Little." This name is probably more appropriate for Gavin, especially taking into account the following pictures in this post.
A good friend of ours recently gave Gavin a gift. She thought that it would be good for him and that he would enjoy it. I had my doubts about this, but am thankful to have been proven wrong. She bought him a walker. It's kind of like those 'old-fashioned' kind that actually allowed your baby to 'walk' around in it. Most of them today are called exersaucers, but they are stationary, so I'm not sure why they are named this?! She was able to find one that actually allows your baby to 'walk' around in it. She is determined that Gavin will do more someday and I pray that she is right about this. But, even if he isn't able to, she has made it possible for him to 'walk' as well as he possibly can.
Here he is trying it out!
He really seems to like it!
He has a hard time keeping his head up and under control, but this is probably a great way for him to practice head control and build some neck muscles!
I think he looks adorable sitting in it and it's so nice to see him sitting up a little more on his own! He is even moving the walker around a little bit, by pushing off the floor with his feet! He looks so proud of himself and he should be proud! I'm awfully proud of him for doing so well in it!
"AWW Shucks Momma! It's really no big deal!"
Thanks Cindy! We appreciate your thoughtfullness and are having fun with your gift to Gavin! Love ya!
"Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me." Matthew 18:3-5
