Happy 1/2 Birthday

A special little boy had a very special day today as he turned 6 months old. He was so much fun when we took him outside this evening to get some shots of him.

That smile melts my heart more and more everyday. Not just because he is mine, but I think he is the happiest little fella I have ever come across. Seriously, he smiles non stop. When I hear him talking on the monitor in the morning and I go in his room, he is smiling from ear to ear.

He got real serious on us when we put him in his car. It was the cutest little thing. Today was the first day we put him in this little car and he did pretty good. Give us a couple more weeks and we will be cruising the neighborhood.

I loved this picture of him looking up at a tree in our front yard.

Do you think he likes this car? I think he loves it and I can not wait till he is sitting up a little better, so we can go on walks with him. Emma has a matching pink one, but hers is not quite as fancy. They have added a cup holder since we purchased hers, too cute!

No birthday would be complete without a cake. Just something simple to help us celebrate this little guy.
We sing Happy Birthday to our kids every month on their Birthdays and Gavin seemed to really enjoy it this month.

I am not sure I could have a sweeter little boy on my hands. I hope he always has the same zest for life that he seems to have now.
Milestones...this boy has become wild in the past month to say the least. Here are all the things he has done between month 5 & 6:
  • Eaten cereal, fruit and he started vegetables last night
  • Wearing a Size 5 diaper
  • Still nursing, no formula (Yay me!)
  • Rolls from back to stomach & stomach to back
  • Laughs really loud all the time
  • Very ticklish
  • Loves to pull my hair
  • Can get up on all 4's and rock back and forth
  • You will wiggle your way out of our arms and to the floor in no time flat
  • Scoots everywhere before you even know it
  • Cut 2 teeth on the bottom within 1 week of each other
  • Got released from physical therapy for Torticollus
  • Measured for a Cranial Band for Plagiocephally
  • Ate from a spoon for the 1st time
  • Attended your 1st Volleyball game at Mommy's school
  • Love to take baths
  • Stare at your Big Sister all the time & hold her hand
  • Drool constantly
  • Enjoy watch Baby Einstein DVD's

Just in the past month it seems like you have become more of a little boy. I must admit that I got really excited tonight when I saw you in that blue car. Your Daddy & I started looking at dumptrucks and boy toys last week and it made my heart giddy. You are going to be so much fun, but I think you might be a very active little thing.

You are such a JOY, JOY, JOY to have around every second of the day. Your little cheeks and smile can light up any room and people often tell us that you put a smile on their face. One thing is for sure Gavin Thomas Frazier, we LOVE you more than we ever thought it was possible to love. Never stop smiling, Son!

I found your blog via Kelly's Korner...I don't know all that is going on with your precious little Gavin, but his story and your heart touched my heart tonight. Our baby Gabriel has dealt with an eye issue this first year of his life & recently had surgery. My heart goes out to all of the mommas and dads who deal with any kind of a health situation with their children. I prayed for you all tonight.
