Well, the first thing I can say is I wanted him VERY badly! Right after Carter was born I knew I wanted to do it all again. Jealous is the word I used a lot when reading about friends announcing their pregnancies. Yes, I am a weirdo, I had a baby, a newborn, and I still wanted another. As soon as we got the go ahead from the doc we started trying. Low and behold it happened fast and we were thrilled to learn our kids would be 15 months apart.
Crazy, right?! But it's exactly what we wanted.
So now that he is about to be 6 months old, on Christmas!, I thought it would be fitting to share what he loves these days. I could write an entirely different post on what I love about him. Well, I guess it comes down to one word - EVERYTHING! I am so in love with the kid it's sickening. But he's just so cute.
The boy does great in the car seat, whether it's in the car or not! The blanket is from Aunt Sue, thanks!
This magical, lovable creature helped him to finally sleep through the night and take great naps. Thanks Aunt Lor for this amazing gift! Doesn't he just look like a friend?!
Uncle Michael and Aunt Heidi actually bought this for CJ when they went to Disney. Gabe has taken it over and LOOOOVES it! Especially his tail.
(Yes, he is in a pink bib, but who cares?! Right?! It was Carter's and I'm too cheap to buy boy colored ones.)
Even if he is the monster at the end of the book, he's still lovable! Look at his smile! His wave! He's cute and Gabe adores him!
Bottle form (yes those were obviously Carter's as well!) and baby food.
This was his face when Marc's mom walked in to the kitchen during my photo shoot. He is likes this EVERY TIME he sees her. Sometimes it's hard to feed him if momma is in the room because he follows her with his eyes and smiles if she looks at him. It's precious.
He zooms around in this thing! And he maneuvers quite well too, even turns his head when backing up. He's hilarious!
Yes, I put myself, but how could I not? He crushes on me hardcore. HA! We're a pretty good match. I mean really, doesn't it just LOOK like he loves me?! HA!
He loves, loves, loves his big sister so, so much. He just thinks that CJ hung the moon. If she pays attention to him watch out, you can feel the sunshine coming off of him!!
MORNING WITH POP!
I haven't been able to take a picture yet (1-because I am sleeping and 2-because it's cute and I don't want to interrupt) but in the mornings Marc feeds Gabe a bottle and watches Mike and Mike in the Morning. Just the two of them. My two boys!
I must note, it has taken me ALL MORNING to do this post because Gabey Baby has been something else! It's as if he knows I am writing about him and wants to prove everything I write wrong. Ey yi yi, kids! And I realize things aren't lined up, but it is what it is. Screaming kid and a blog that isn't working with me equals ugly post. C'est la vie!
