Our little couch potato. Gavin discovered the tv right before we moved from Seattle. No matter where he is sitting he will find the tv.

Happy 1st Birthday Gavin!

I can’t believe this year has gone by so fast. It seems like you were only a small baby for a brief moment and I’m afraid before we know it you will be all grown up. But, “Ma-ma” and “Da-da” are enjoying every minute with you.

Baby Bear, always remember your family, mother, and I love you with all our hearts! We are looking forward to all the adventures we get to spend together in the future. Thank you for blessing our lives with such joy.

Gavin’s San Diego Birthday Party

Celebrating Gavin’s 1st birthday with the Loera clan and friends in San Diego.


Gavin’s First Trip To CALM

Gavin loved all the animals except the pony. I think she was a little too ‘in your face’ for his taste. I’m sure he will warm up to her next time.


Gavin Can Walk (8 feet or so…)

Everyday Gavin is walking better and better. It is only a matter of time until he will be joining The Ministry of Silly Walks.


Quack Quacks

Gavin asked to go see “quack quacks” which is how he refers to pretty much any bird-like animal. We managed to find a few geese, a duck, and a crow which hadn’t melted from the heat outside.

Central Coast Vacation: Morro Bay

We spent a three day weekend in San Luis Obispo to show Gavin around our old stomping grounds. It is amazing how much they have built at Cal Poly since I last visited! We also visited Pismo, Avila, and Morro Bay… lots of walks on various piers for Gavin.
