Happy 6 Months continued...

Gabriel is growing so fast and he's such a fun little man. He sits up on his own now - he has been for like 2 weeks I think. He really likes it. He may never crawl because he has learned he can get around by rolling over and over and over:) He loves bathtime and I'm pretty sure he hates to sleep. He is just too curious about the world to get slowed down by sleep! He is a little sweetheart who loves to snuggle with me. And he gives hugs and kisses. Sometimes he just randomly grabs me around my neck and opens his mouth up on my cheek. Sometimes he also latches on and sucks on the side of my chin while he hugs me. And most of the time there is a great deal of hair grabbing with all of this. No teeth yet, but I just know they're not far away. It's so fun to see him growing and learning and finding out about this world he now lives in.

Happy 6 Months

He's 6 months today! We celebrated by getting pictures done. I plan to do a bigger, better post later - right now the computer is desperately needed for Finals for Gabe. But happy day to our little bubba boy! (That's one of our names for him:)

Things I Love About the Gabes

5 Things I Love about Gabe
  • He's so funny - he makes me laugh all the time. Many times I'm amazed at how he can come up with such funny remarks. Our great friend, Becca, calls it "hysterical laughter at anything her husband says." What can I say, I'm a sucker for him!
  • He's super smart - like really smart. And smart about anything: computers, electronics, the name it, he knows how it works.
  • He's sensitive - but not in a feminine kind of way...He's a guy but understands me when something girlie is important to me or when I'm sad about something maybe other guys would find stupid. And he knows you never say anything about stuff like weight, looks, etc. unless it's totally positive.
  • He's generous - the most generous person I know. The best part is that it's completely who he is and not in a "I'm trying to be righteous" way.
  • He's a family man - he loves Gabriel and I with everything he has. He tells us and shows us everyday and I know KNOW he would give or do anything for us.
5 Things I Love about Gabriel
  • His smell - it's just so sweet and perfect. Even if he smells like spit up, I can't get enough.
  • His warm little body - especially in the middle of the night when I want to cry because I have to wake up again to feed him. But I can't resist his little head and tummy and legs and feet and arms and neck and etc.
  • His smile - it's the cutest thing there ever was. There's just something about a baby's smile, but especially my Baby Gabe's gummy grin! It can light the darkest room.
  • His cry - even though sometimes it's the last thing I want to hear:) But it's so pure and he really has a nice cry. I've heard some babies....
  • His hands - they're tiny and soft. The balls of his fingers are especially soft. I like to hold his hand while I'm feeding him and stroke the tips of his fingers. And I love when he uses his hands to touch my face or hold my hand - it's like he's showing me he loves me.
Love 'Em Lots

He Likes to be Scared...

I've been wanting to post this for a while:)

The Days Go By

Here are some pictures of our sweet boy. He's growing up so fast - he'll be 6 months old on the 21st! We are really starting to see his personality bloom everyday: he loves attention, enjoys being around people, and soaks in new places - sometimes he won't blink! And he's very ticklish!

Just doing some laundry with me

Of course he started eating it...

Notice the tongue? We love him!

Rice Cereal

Gabriel's first time eating anything other then breast milk. He seemed to really enjoy it. For a few days he seemed really hungry and not quite satisfied with just milk. He watches us while we eat and seems to want to take a bite. So we decided that it was time to try some rice cereal.
