I can't believe my baby is turning FOUR tomorrow. But he definitely is!
Tomorrow is July 16. A very important day in our family!
Gavin has had an amazing weekend. It might even be the best weekend of his life. Anyway, its up there with the top!
He is having his first weekend away, camping with Gramma and Grampa in their trailer and loving it! And he also got a new big boy bike and helmet that he is pretty excited about!
We can't wait for him to come home tomorrow morning on his birthday! We both have the day off to celebrate with our birthday boy!
Our son, Gavin, was born with a congenital limb difference. His left arm is amputated just below the elbow (LBE). Sometimes the easiest way to explain it to people, especially children, is that he has one little arm, just like Nemo has one little fin!
From the moment he was born, Gavin has proven that there is nothing he can't do. He inspires me every day with his big, gorgeous smile and his determination.
This blog is my way of sharing the struggles and accomplishments of having a child with a limb difference. It is also to answer any questions people might have. There is no limit to what child amputees can achieve. Just try telling Gavin that there is something he can't do, and he will prove you wrong! He may have to do some things a bit differently, but he will always find a way.
