Our Little Baby

Here are some pictures of our little 3 month old! He is growing up fast and we are loving every minute of it. He is a really funny little guy, full of energy, and snuggly all at the same time. I'm going to go snuggle with him right now!

He Talks!

Gabriel has been a little talker since he was really little, but in the last week or so he has started to talk a lot more. It's the cutest thing. Last night he just really started blabbering away while we were trying to put him to sleep. The video is totally dark because it was in the bedroom and I didn't want to disturb what was happening. We have so much fun with him and he'll be 3 months on Wednesday!

2 months and being sick

The last Tuesday in December we made the dreaded trip to the doctor for Gabriel's 2 month checkup - which included his immunizations. At the time he weighed 11 1bs 15.5 oz. So we can just round that up to 12! This put him in the 45th percentile for weight. I can't really remember his length, something like 15 inches, and that put him in the 22nd percentile for length. And apparently he has a tiny head because he was only in the 15th percentile for head size! Initially they put him in the 8th percentile but then the doctor remeasured his head and adjusted the percentile. He did really well when getting his shots, but it pained me to hear him; he cried a cry I have never heard before. That day and the next he was really fussy and had a fever. We could tell he just did not feel good. No more shots until the beginning of March. That will probably come too soon though! On another note, no one told me that once you have a baby you absolutely, positively, no matter what CANNOT get sick! Last week I got hit hard and fast with a bad cold and strep throat. It gets kind of tricky when you have a little baby to take care of. He was great though! Luckily he likes t.v. I know that sounds horrible, but I would set him up in the Boppy and he would watch t.v. for half an hour. It was hilarious but really helped me out. He got a cold too with a nasty cough, but it went away fairly quickly. I am doing whatever I can now to NEVER get sick again.
