Gavin spent his 4th Birthday at the hospital.....

.....and we were actually happy to be there!



Here is a clue to why:




Gavin was getting an extra special birthday gift!

He received a cousin on his birthday! And, I finally became an aunt!

My sister and her husband Mark, welcomed their first child a week early, which happened to be on Gavin's birthday! I personally count September 15 as a very special day, because this is the day that we were blessed with Gavin! And, now this day was made even more special....by the birth of Tate Doty Burton!



What a great birthday gift for Gavin! We were, and are, so happy and excited to have this new little person in our life to love!

Here is my mom loving on Mr. Tate, just a couple of hours after his birth:



And, here is the little Tater Tot, a few days later:



Isn't he a sweet, little honey?! I'm in love!



My beautiful sister and her bundle of blessing:



And, the two birthday boys together!



We used to think Gavin was so little, but now he looks huge!



I think Gavin is excited about this extra special birthday gift! I know that I am!

Welcome to the world Tate! And, congrats Amy and Mark! We are so happy for all of you! And, happy for us too.....we now have your little one to love!

How cool that the two cousins share a birthday! Congratulations to your family! (It looks like little Tate has your guys' hair color--and I can certainly see that you two are sisters :)) Cute picture of Gavin and Tate!

So sweet! His hair appears to be the same color as Gavin's? I love that they share a birthday. Tate is such a cute name too, I would definitely be calling him Tater Tot. :)

Oh wow, how lucky is he! That will be fun to celebrate together every year!

Awww...too sweet! That's neat they share a birthday! We named our last blessing Tate as well. He will be 10 months old tomorrow. Lots of sweet nicknames - Tater tot, Tater salad...my personal favorite - Taterbug! Congrats to your sister! BTW - I love reading your blog. The faith you share in your posts is truly uplifting. Thanks
