Dear Gavin,

I have so much to tell you. How sweet you are. How loved you are. I cannot imagine my life without you. You are possibly the sweetest little boy on earth. I feel so blessed to be your mom. You are not even a year yet, and I can already tell that you have a kind heart, that you are determined, that you have such a love for life. It is refreshing. You make me want to be a better mom. You "sqwauk" with such conviction. You believe in what you are saying. I cannot wait to know all of what you want to tell me. To see life through your eyes.

I found out I was pregnant with you on your brothers first birthday. Valentines Day. What a perfect Valentines present. Your daddy and I were SO excited. We planned you and your bro so close together in hopes that you would be eachothers best friend. I can see how that is already developing. Your brother is tough on you, but he is the first one to have your back. I know you two will always be there for eachother.

Gavin John.

Your daddy wanted to name you Luke John. I wanted Bryson or Trevor. We both were not in love with eachothers picks so we started from scratch. We both loved Gavin and it fits you perfectly. We took your daddy's dad, you Papa's, name for your middle name. If you were a girl you would have been Lorelai. We both could not imagine our lives without 2 rambunctious, playful, happy boys.

You have the best smile. I cannot wait to see where life takes you. I know that you will be strong and never let anything hold you back.

You are our little guy. I am so in love with you.

Love Always,

But please tell Gavin, Aunt Bean loves him too! His smile is contagious.
