Gavyn Michael Thalken

Today, November 9th, is my nephew Gavyn's birthday. He is now 3 years old and totally thinks he is Batman. OK, so this kid is cute and smart and funny and lovable in so many ways. I do not say that just because I am his proud aunt. He truly is amazing. I remember the moment my sister told me she was pregnant with him. He was the first grandchild born into our family, and we were bursting with excitement. I remember the hospital when he was born: hearing him cry, watching through the glass as the nurse cleaned him, holding him for the first time. As he grew he was so stinking cute because he always looked like a little man. My sister trained him to not take hats off his head so he was so little and always had these adorable golfer hats on and would actually wear them. If you know my sister Selah, you know that Gavyn has inherited quite a dramatic streak. He makes the funniest faces and is truly theatrical. He can be soooo sweet and can also be a little toot. He is the best big brother and cousin ever. Gavyn loves his brother Joshy and his cousin Emily. I know as they all grow up that they will be able to look to Gavyn as a leader. Gavyn already loves Jesus and loves to worship and I know God has placed so much inside of him. I am so excited to watch him grow up and experience this abundant life God has for him. He has an amazing calling on his life and will bless many many people. Gavyn has made me such a proud aunty! I love you Gavyn, happy birthday!
