He's so loved.....

I get to spend lots of time with Gavin. I am almost always with him, unless he is at school or I get a rare time away from home. I love spending time with Gavin! As I've said before, he makes me so happy and I can't get enough of him!

Gavin has other people in his life that love him lots too, like his Daddy and his big brothers. They don't get as much time with Gavin as I do, but they love giving him attention when they are around.

Here are some pictures of Gavin being loved on by them:

"Daddy, you are so funny!"

Jacob almost always asks to hold Gavin if he is sitting down in the Living room. Sometimes Jake and I even fight over who gets to hold Gavin!

Big brother Caleb is lots of fun to play with! He makes lots of silly noises that Gavin loves to hear, plus Caleb is very active so when he's around, there is no way Gavin could ever be bored!

Nolan is a very sensitive big brother to Gavin. He is the one that I can count on to come running if he hears Gavin gagging. He likes to make sure Gavin is comfortable and happy. Nolan is also good at singing silly songs to Gavin.

And, back to Jake.....I really don't know how I'd do all of this care for Gavin, without Jacob?! He is old enough for me to trust him to watch Gavin for a couple of hours and he is almost always there to lend a hand if I need something for Gavin. Plus, he seriously loves Gavin.....maybe even as much as I do! He says that Gavin is his favorite person in the whole world and one of his best friends!

Gavin is so very loved!

Gavin will get lots of time to be with all of his family for the next week and a half! We are headed out tonight for a 10 day, whirlwind vacation. We are making 5 stops.....first to see relatives and then to see and do lots of fun things!

This Momma is very tired from the craziness of this week.....2 doctor appointments, a blood draw and X-ray for Gavin, a trip to the vet, 2 trips to the bank, paying bills, trip to the pharmacy twice, grocery shopping.....and lots of laundry, packing and planning! I am so looking forward to this get-a-way.....I just hope that I can keep my eyes open to enjoy the fun! :)

I just went up to check on Gavin and this is how I found him! I guess he is worn out from all of the activity of this past week too! :)

I'd love to lay down beside him and take a short nap,but more packing is calling my name..........

Hope all of you have a great week! I plan to, once I get a long nap in the car...on our way to fun, adventures and relaxation....if that exists when you are traveling with 4 boys! :)

I'm so glad your family LOVES to hold Gavin. We were the same with Ben. I terribly miss holding him. So enjoy EVERY minute! (and give him a squeeze for me)

Annnnnd you made me cry. Again. But it's all good, since it's a happy cry over how touched and blessed I am to be a part of your family and to call these boys my nephews. And Jacob - he has the biggest heart EVER! I LOVE YOU ALL! Wishing you happy, safe, joyful travels! Wish I were closer so I could help you with the packing! I owe ya, how's that? (((HUGS)))

All that attention is the best for him! And he knows how to work it! All that lovin' = some big smiles!

And he asleep...could it be any cuter?! I do not know if I could resist squeezing him!

Those pictures are so sweet; you can definitely tell he is very much loved by his adoring big brothers!

Sorry to hear of all the mess that greeted you upon your return from vacation!
