I said that I was going to blog for the next consecutive 31 days, to talk about Gavin and to raise awareness to Down syndrome.

It's only Day 2, and I have already had a hard time finding time to blog! How am I going to do this for 31 days straight?!

Anyway, I've decided over the next month to talk about the characteristics of Gavin and what he brings to this world. Today's topic is HAPPINESS.

Gavin may not be able to talk or walk, but he can brighten up a room like no one else can! He is such a HAPPY boy and almost always has a smile for you!

There is nothing like a smile from a person who has Down syndrome! Gavin's entire face lights up when he smiles and he radiates happiness! In fact, half the time when he smiles, he smiles with his entire body! How can you be in a bad mood with this face around you everyday?!

I bet he made you smile! :)

I know that he brightens my days, and he also seems to brighten other's days too. Here are some pictures of him visiting with Grandma. She says that he is "the light of her life." Well.....she says that about all of our boys, but I can definitely tell that Gavin makes her happy!

The world is definitely a happier place with Gavin in it!

"Happy are the people who are in such a state; Happy are the people whose God is the Lord!" Psalm 144:15
