Milestone


Today is a milestone.

My "baby" Gavin


that piece of my heart
who walks around outside of my body

turns 21.

He's a bright, engaging, serious young man
learning to make his way in the world.


I have no doubt
his path will be a special one.

Happy 21st Birthday,
Gavin.

I love you, heart of my heart.

That baby picture of Gavin is adorable. He's grown into a nice looking young man. Happy Birthday Gavin. Hope your day is filled with happiness. Have a great day everyone.

This is such a big deal for him but also for you...it's transitioning time and that can be exciting and hard...Celebrate his birthday and your accomplishments as a great mom :)
