Maxwell's baby/scrapbook is filled to overflowing, and it's still not even complete.
With Sammy, I did alright. I started a journal for him and started his baby book. But somewhere along the way, we switched to a digital camera and 90% of our pictures remain unprinted and un "scraped".
Now, Gabe...Gabe HAS a baby book...
...and one or two pages are filled in...
AND he's got...this post!
This post is an Ode to my Baby...
He's really really cute!
And he's growing up before my eyes. So I thought I'd better document a little of his littleness before it's gone.
First it should be noted that Gabe has been my best baby so far in terms of crying/sleeping/eating/birthing. I was induced early and he was the first kid to come out willingly with NO cord wrapped tightly around his neck. Best post-birth recovery too.
Gabers just has a good dispostion. Maybe it's having two big brothers, but he's a pretty easy to please kid. (Except that lately he HAS been showing a bit of a 'tude. I choose to believe it's just a REALLY short phase he's going through and NOT the start of the "terrible two's" early.)
He was a little late to walk, (14 months) but he figured it out eventually.
He's talking a little. He says "Mama, Dada, Yeah!, Ta Dah!, Ah Duh (all done), EAS! (please), MA (more) and the sign for Milk which means he wants a drink. (He can also do the "more" and "all done" signs.)At the moment, I'M his favorite parent. But I'm sure he'll soon be a Daddy's Boy just like the other little traitors.
He loves to eat and can feed himself with a spoon. (Though it's a bit messy.)
He's a proficient climber and mischief maker.
He thinks he can dance (just like his Mama).
He's super drooly just like Max was.
He's my first boy to have even a HINT of curl in his hair. (which is why I'll NEVER cut it no matter how mullet-ish it becomes...)
And his brother Max can make him belly laugh harder than anyone.
