I know this may seem weird to blog about...but I have hopes that as Gavin get's older he will not only look back on this blog to see all about himself as a child, but also to see events that took place. Up until now, nothing really "big" has happened (since his birth).
But today...Michael Jackson, the "King of Pop" passed away.
I'm certain that even 16 years from now his music will be popular, played on the radio, occassionally on tv, and at some point Gavin will know who he is, and maybe even a chorus or two. What he won't remember is the day his death was confirmed on the news he lay sleeping in my arms. I guess I'm just shocked by this news...for some reason I'm always so stunned when a celebrity dies---they just seem untouchable. My mom and Kena put it well--> this is just like the announcement of Elvis Presley's death, but to my generation.
So, this may or may not be of any significance to Gavin someday, but it's a huge deal today, and I wanted to quickly mention it on his blog.
AND to end on a happy note...Gavin also ate oatmeal from a SPOON for the very first time today...here's a photo:
I think he's wearing more than he actually ate, lol.
