S: Gavin Fender Quevedo: The First Year


1: REMEMBERING THE JOURNEY AND JOYFUL EXPERIENCES OF THE FIRST YEAR OF GAVIN FENDER QUEVEDO'S LIFE. November 2010- November 2011 | Dear Gavin, In your first year of life, we have fallen more and more in love with you every day. Prior to your arrival, we never knew it was possible to love anyone or anything as much as we love you, Gavin. You truly are a joy to have around each day. A few of our favorite things about you that we have learned this year: Your precious smile is so genuine, it brightens any day; You have a love for everyone & everything, you are such a sweet boy to people & animals; You are brave--you went right from walking to running, you fall & you get back up; and you are independent. We love you with all our hearts & we look forward to learning more about you through the years. Love, Mommy & Daddy
