With Halloween quickly approaching, we purchased Gavin's very first costume. Of course I had to try it on him and he looked so cute!

On another note - this has not really been the 2009 I was hoping for. Although it started off with the best experience of my life with Gavin's birth, it also included the worst experience of my life with my mom's passing. First, losing my mom makes all these special moments with Gavin bittersweet, because I just wish she was here to experience them with me. September 29 would have been my parents' 30-year anniversary, so my sisters and I went to dinner with my dad. Here is a picture of Gavin enjoying his fingers at the restaurant:
Another reason 2009 is not turning out as I had hoped, is because Matt's grandpa was recently diagnosed with cancer. We just returned home from visiting him in the hospital. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers because we want him home soon! Matt's brother and his wife were also there visiting Papaw with their two beautiful daughters. It was nice to get our first pictures of the three little ones together. They are just too cute!
