Getting Bigger

I couldn't get him to hold still for very long, he's always kicking and punching!!

Oh my goodness, how much do I love this little face??!!

I love this happy face even more though!

Gabe had his one month check up last Monday, August 30. He weighed in at a whopping 11 pounds 4 ounces and has grown an additional 2 1/2 inches in length (now 23 1/2 inches long). He is getting so BIG!!

We are pretty much always amazed by what he can do. He can lift his head, and really he's been doing that since he was born, he can smile and coo (the BEST!!), he loves to kick his legs and pump his arms. But I think his favorite things to do is eat and snuggle. This kid is eating every 2 1/2 hours or so during the day but will pretty much sleep thru the night. Gabe's a pretty amazing kid. The dogs love to watch him and investigate him when they are allowed to be close. Mostly they just lick his ears and toes, which Gabe gets a kick out of. It's so fun to see how good the three of them are together.
Being a mom is still awesome and I find that my time with him is flying by. I wish I could somehow freeze this period of my life because I know I will never get it back. Now I know what my parents were always talking about when I was growing up. You really do want it to just stop for a while so you can savor it a bit better. I just want him to stay little and snuggly forever!!
