Gabe is 8 Months!!!

So another month has come and gone too fast and Gabe keeps getting bigger and bigger.. oh and cuter and cuter! He has the most ADORABLE personality that shows more and more each day. He has done so much this last month, I hope I can remember it all. But the one thing he will never stop doing doing is putting smiles on our faces. So here goes the list:
*He is learning how to do all sorts of Yoga positions (downward dog and downward plank) and this is because he refuses to crawl and maneuvers this way
*He said MAMA!!!!! It was clear as a bell. Dallas refuses to believe it but I know what I heard. Whether Gabe knew what he was saying or not, he said that sweet little word!!!
*He will ONLY go to sleep when:
-Daddy is rocking him
-He is going for a car ride
-Momma leaves him in his crib long enough to fall asleep
*He will NOT go to sleep when:
-Momma is rocking him
-Momma is nursing him
-Momma is holding him and singing to him
*Loves to sleep on his belly and only on his belly
*He is making this new scrunched up face when we make silly faces or noises at him. Its almost like he only thinks we are amusing... but not quite funny anymore
*Has developed a MONSTER appetite... like his father
*Still screams like a girl
*He sings himself to sleep
*Oh, and he got Thrush this last month... WHAT?!?!
We are OBSESSED with Gabers and don't know what we would do without him. He just makes life AMAZING!
Now for the Pictures...


Bragging Rights

So I know no words need to be said about how ADORABLE my son is.... so do I have Bragging Rights??? YOU BET I DO!!!! I am SO Obsessed with this little boy. I almost cried today just thinking about how I will never get to hold him as a little 6 ib 8 oz baby, never get to change his FIRST poopy daiper, never get to give him his FIRST bath and so many other FIRSTS! I know I will get to do all those things again... but not with my Gabers. Am I silly for being sad about all of this? We love him more than we ever thought we could love someone. It is just insane the love and protection I feel for this little soul. Oh, we love you Gaber Boy! Here are some cute shots I got of him this last week... he just melts my heart!


My Besties...

To my Girls...

So I wanted to post about two very important people in my life that I got to spend time with this last week. Ali Holt and Kristen Rockwood. I have been friends with these two ladies for I believe six years now. First of all... Crazy how time flies!!!! These women have really made my life so much better. They are THE example of what friendship is all about. We have been through some fun, crazy, stupid, emotional and exciting times together. Everything from Ex-Boyfriends, Spring Breaks to St. George/ Vegas and San Diego, Our Weddings, Living out of State and now our Babies. Ali was in town for her baby Boston's baby blessing (wow, lots of B's there.) We got to see that exciting moment in their lives. Me and Kris also went to Baby Boston's newborn photo shoot. That was great too... simply because we just got to be together. I missed out on a night of desert at Chili's due to Dalls birthday but we made up for it by going to lunch at Olive Garden were we talked and just played with the Babies. I want to tell these girls that I LOVE and APPRECIATE their friendship more than they will ever know. They have helped me along my little life's journey over the last six years by being the best friends anyone could ever ask for. Thanks Ali and Kris! I love you and I am so grateful for both of you!!!

My Mothers Day

I am so grateful to me a new mommy this year to the best little boy on this planet!!! I am so lucky to have such a sweet spirit in our home. He has blessed our lives so much having him here with us. I always knew I wanted to me a mom and I hoped that I would make as good a mother as my mom has been to me and my siblings. I look back at ALL of the things she did for us growing up. She would have stopped anything she was doing just to be there if we needed her. She taught us wonderful life lessons through teaching and just by her good, sweet example. I am so lucky to have a mother so wonderful. I really believe we chose to be with eachother here on this earth. I LOVE YOU MOM!!! I hope I can be as good a mother to Gabe as you have been to me. Thank you for everything you do for me and my little family daily!
Here are a few pictures from my mothers day...
Awwwwww.. delicious Strawberries!!!

Allie and Marn

My sweet sisters.... Minus one (April). I am so lucky to have these women in my life. We get a little crazy when we are together but that makes it all the better!!!

My Fantastic Mommy and my little man. I love these two SO much!!!


And he is sitting up...

Gabe is sitting up all on his own... with very little help from us. He just seems too little to be doing this. His torso is so tiny and compact. I LOVE it!!! Enjoy this little clip I got on my camera. Oh and please ignore my annoying voice in the background.
