Happy Birthday Gavin Thomas

Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday Dear Gavin
Happy Birthday to you

Gavin ~ A year ago today I was blessed with the amazing gift of you, my sweet little man. That day will forever be etched in my mind and my heart. I will never forget laying eyes on you and telling your Daddy over and over again, we have a baby boy. I was so excited we had finally become the Frazier Four and so honored that God had chosen me to be your Mommy.

Holding you in my arms was like holding a little piece of Heaven. Every time I look into your big eyes, I am reminded of my sweet Daddy that went to live with Jesus 3 years ago. Oh what I would give if he could have held you this side of heaven. Your eyes, your smile, your face and so many things about you remind me of the greatest man I ever knew. I am so proud of you and my heart burst at the seams each time I hear someone say you look just like my Daddy.

Happy Birthday to you Gavin. I love you today, I will love you tomorrow and I will love you forever. I look forward to watching you grow over the years and becoming a fine young man that loves the Lord. I hope you will always SMILE the way you SMILE today. Not a day goes by that you do not bring an unexplainable amount of joy to my life. Thank you so much for teaching me how to be a Mommy to a little boy.

Love Mommy

Gavin Thomas, my boy, you have brought so much joy to our lives since you came into this world & our family one year ago. I remember praying to God to bless our family with a baby boy who would carry on the Frazier name.... and what a blessing you are! I must admit, I too take a great deal of pride in seeing all of the traits that you have inherited from your Papa Fabian.

The pure love and happiness that you exude everyday brings a smile not only to my face, but to all that lay eyes on you! From the way that your eyes light up when you see your big sister, to the way that you hug my neck when I drop you off in the mornings, you are full of love! There is something very special about you, my son and I know that God has great things in store for you. I look forward to teaching you so many things, yet I know that there is much that you will teach me as well. Know this Gavin Thomas, I could not be more proud to be your father. I love you forever, boy! Happy First Birthday Gavin!!
Love Daddy

Gavin, Your favorite time is your Birthday. I love you very much on your Birthday.

Love Emma

(This is what Emma told you this morning when Daddy asked her what she wanted to tell you on your Birthday)

Your sister loves you so much and is so protective over you. She has started begging us to wake you up every time you take a nap because she does not want to be away from you. We dare not leave you anywhere that she is not or she has a melt down. She loves to play with you and make you laugh. We took her to the Toy store on the park and she picked out 2 very special presents just for you (a red airplane and little blue car that are wrapped in a velvety material). She is so excited that today is your Birthday and loves you very much.

You will be having a Circus/Carnival party on Saturday and we are expecting about 100 friends and family to help us celebrate you. We actually took you to a carnival to have your 1st Birthday pictures taken and we also gave you your own little cake that you DESTROYED. You loved it and it was so much fun to watch you eat it up. There were many times that you just put your face down in it to eat. It has been so much fun planning for your big day and watching everything come together to create the perfect day for you.

You will go to the Dr. on Monday for your 1 year check up. However, here are some of the things you are doing:

  • cruising around furniture
  • eating solid foods
  • drinking whole milk (you nursed for a year, but started on whole milk Monday)
  • hugging us tight when we ask you for a hug
  • climbing up furniture
  • wearing size 6 diapers
  • 24 month -2t clothes
  • drink out of a cup with a straw, you do not like a sippie cup
  • follow your sister everywhere
  • so attached to Mommy that you scream if I leave the room
  • finally facing forward in your car seat
  • love to watch Noddy on TV
  • like to be outside and cry when you have to go back in
  • love rides in your little blue car
  • you have a very strong will and get mad if things do not go your way

Once again, we wish you a very Happy First Birthday Gavin. We love you so much and could never imagine life without you. Thank you so much for completing our family and making us...

...the Frazier Four!
