Happy Birthday Daylen!

I can't believe it's aready been 2 years! 08/07/06 we brought our little Daylen Bradly Gasaway in to this world. It's amazing how much he has grown and learned over the past 2 years. His huge smile and big blue eyes have charmed family, friends, and strangers alike. He has a natural athletic talent and love for all types of sports (as you can see in the pics below, golf is one of those). He has a shirt that says, "So many sports, so little time" and I think that is going to be just the case for our little guy. Lately, we've had so much fun hearing his vocabulary blossom...colors, shapes, animals...he soaks it all up like a sponge. He repeats everything we say, including our expressions, "that's cool!" "Oh my goodness!" or "bummer!" We are also happy to see him take to his role as a big brother. We are super proud of our not-so-baby boy.

We love our little/big boy so much. He makes us laugh every day. The other night Brad was at mutual and Kate was in bed so it was just Daylen and I sitting at home together watching, "So You Think You Can Dance" and I looked over at him and he gave me the biggest, cheesiest smile ever. So I gave him a big, cheesy smile back. We then proceeded to make silly faces at each other until we were both laughing. Then he came and sat on my lap and we rocked as I thought about how much better my life has been since he came in to it. I hugged him and told him I loved him and he then said my favorite new phrase of his, "I love you!"
