Gavin Adores His Brothers!

Gavin has been sick. But, what is new?! Gavin has had a really rough couple of months! He just can't seem to catch a break, and I think it's beginning to wear on him.....and I know that it's wearing on me! He has been catching every little thing that comes around him, and it's been hitting him hard every time! Plus, he has been generous in sharing his germs with me......so life around here hasn't been the most enjoyable lately. I can't wait until the germs of winter are gone, and we have some consistantly nice weather and fewer illnesses! I need this so badly! And, so does my sweet Gavin!

The other day I was trying to take a few pictures of Gavin. He hasn't been his happy self, due to all his sickness, so I couldn't get a smile out of him no matter how hard I tried!



Then along came big brother Jake! He always likes to "pet" Gavin on the head.




And, Gavin knows that Jake is around as soon as he feels that little "pet" on his head! He simply adores Jake! In fact, Gavin adores all of his brothers!



And, here's the proof!




All it took to get a smile from Gavin was a visit from one of his brothers! Thanks Jacob for helping me get a smile, and a great picture of our little man! :)

aww, that is so so sweet. I was afraid he'd been sick since you hadn't posted in a while. I'm sorry all the crud is hitting. Praying for better weather so you can get in the "healthy" again. LOVE LOVE LOVE those pics of him smiling...even the non smiling ones look great. Sending you a hug and some get well prayers.

I always wished I had a big brother, Gavin, and you have three of them! How cool is that! I hope you start feeling better very soon!

You don't me but I check into your blog often because your little Gavin puts the biggest smile on my face. I think he is just precious, thanks for sharing.

Man I don't think I've seen him that serious in a long time! Jax will smile so great for his big brothers! Although Kayla is the only one that gets the ga ga face!

Man his smile is contagious. He is too much! Sorry to hear the winter weather has gotten to you. I am so ready for warmer weather to come and stay. I love snow, but enough is enough. Hope things will start looking up for Gavin and you too! It's super toasty here today, but is suppose to drop back to 50s by tomorrow. Bah-humbug! But I guess 50s is better than 30s.
Thanks for sharing the smile!

Too cute! My Jacob is the one that can always get his sister to smile!! Sometimes Emily is pouting and being grumpy, and all it takes is me calling Jacob over. She immediately smiles huge for him! :)
