9 Months! Oh Boy!

Today he is 9 months old. Wow. Time has passed so quickly. I can't believe we're 3 months away from 1 year! He is so full of personality and really fun to watch. I am so grateful to be a part of his life and be able to watch him learn and grow everyday. I love being his mom. I love him. Lots. And lots. He seems to have become more of a "big boy" overnight. He can sit in his high chair and feed himself his snacks and drink out of his sippy cup all by himself. He talks his gibberish to us everyday, especially when he wakes up in the morning (or the middle of the night). He knows how to give high-5, wave bye-bye, and clap his hands together. He pulls himself up to stand on anything and everything. Gabriel loves the water, whether it's bathtime or swimming. My favorite thing he does is throw stuff. And he doesn't just throw things, he throws them with attitude. He gets almost an angry look on his face and grunts as he throws stuff down, HARD. It's hilarious. We're enjoying summer and the nakedness that comes along with it (for him). It's fun to be with my little guy.

Family Pictures

My awesome friend, Tara, took some family pictures of us about 2 months ago. She also took his first pictures when he was about one month old. I love how they turned out - she's so good at photography. The little orchard where we took them was in all its spring blossoming glory. The orchard is by the State Hospital in Provo and was/still probably is the premiere place to take pictures. Here are some of my favorites
His little expression is so funny
