Gavin was born five weeks prematurely. It seems he is always playing catch up. He is small for his age, in fact his weight still hasn't made the charts. At 18 months he just started walking. He isn't really talking yet. Despite all of this, he is a confident and hilarious child. He has all of us trained! Whenever he "goes for a walk", be it down the street or just across the family room, he stops and waits for us to cheer. When he does something he finds funny, he gives a darling little laugh, and then waits for us to do the same. Whenever there is clapping or cheering, Gavin believes it is for him and responds accordingly. I hope he never loses this part of his personality. He is so much fun!
