For those of you who aren't on Facebook here is a picture of our baby boy. He is 5 months in this picture and we are patiently waiting for an updated one. We have decided to name him Gavin Bak (Beck). He turns one tomorrow and I am kinda sad to miss his first birthday but there is not much I can do about it. All I can do is pray our wait is short and things go smoothly. Our last update said he weighs 21.5 lbs. He is a bigger baby than Cameron was at that age. We picked up Cameron 12 days after his 1st birthday and he was 18 lbs.
I am now getting Gavin's room together. He is getting a whole new room but it is Cameron's old room so it has been very hard to change it. I had that room painted with furniture in place when we started trying to get pregnant over 5 years ago. I shut that door many times in sadness not knowing when a baby would be filling that room. Then when we got Cameron's referral I filled it with clothes, toys and all the extras only to shut the door again because he just wasn't coming home any time soon. I can so see that room when he first came home and I just loved sitting next to his crib while he slept balling my eyes out. He took his first steps in that room, fell asleep playing with his toys for the first time and slept at home for the first time in that room. I know Gavin will love his room when it is finished and I am so happy to know there will be another baby in that room. I just hope I never have to shut that door!
I am 32 years old and have been married to my husband, Dan for 6 years. We are now proud parents of our son, Cameron, who we brought home from Guatemala on March 4th, 2008 and Gavin, home from South Korea August 12, 2010. I am a stay at home mom which is the most rewarding thing I have ever done. We have the best friends and family anyone could ask for.
