10 Months... Oh My!!!

So Gabe is now 10 Months.... yes, so sad but so true. As much as I hate that he is getting older and bigger, those are also the things that I love too. I have so many mixed emotions about Gabe growing up but I have mentioned them all before and we all know I am a bit of a sap when I start to get into it.. so I wont. On a happier note, Gabe has done some exciting things this month. 
*He is CRAWLING... and I must say he just wont stop moving now that he knows how to move those knees.
*He has had his two bottom teeth pop up and has not liked it one bit.
*He has learned how to click with his tongue. I have no idea how he figured out how to do that but it is so cute.
*He is really starting to say a word that resembles Ma Ma.. but it sounds a lot like mmmmmmmmmmmmm to Dallas.
*He is still extremely clingy to his momma and daddy but will go to a stranger if he is forced... we had to do that a few nights ago.
*He thinks that me and my mom are one person. He likes to be with her just as much as he likes to be with me. Whats the deal with that?
*He starts to jump up and down when I sing Popcorn Poppin. He gets so excited with that song.
* He still makes his funny, scratchy fake laugh when he thinks we are amusing. Not funny.... but amusing.
*He reaches for people when he wants to be picked up or held... so cute.

He Will NOT lay down for these pictures anymore... so this is what I get.

Oh and he kept eating the paper so I just had to take it away.. silly boy!

The two Loves of my Life!

We also went up to SnowBird with Dall's family to get in some R & R. It was so much fun and Gabe loved spending time with Gramps Bobby and Grams Jules... and all the rest of the fam. It was Gorgeous up there and we are sad we had to come home!! Here are just some of this pictures I took up there.

Us getting ready for our fun Day Pass.

We went swimming and Gabe LOVED the Water.

Grandpa Bobby is telling gabe what to do with that football...
All in all, we had an awesome week with the DeHaan's.


Picture of the day...

I had to post this picture of my Gabers and my sweet neice Avery. I thought it was so funny because right before I took this picture, Avery and Gabe were somewhat fighting over the penguin that Gabe is holding in sweet triumph. I guess he won the battle of the penguin. Avery just wanted to get out after that. The look on Gabe's face makes me chuckle. This is the face he gets when he is really excited over something. It's like he flexes his face to the point of contortion. What a little bully. I guess he will have to hold his own because he has two girl cousins a year older than him that will want to make him play "dress-up" and paint his nails. We wont have any of that!!!

The 4th Festivities...

This post is a little late but hey, I have been a little busy. My family took our annual Antimony trip over the 4th of July. It was very fun but a little crazy. Everyone came from my immediate family except for Allie... who was missed by everyone!!! We had a great time down there, relaxing.... well, trying to relax at least, soaking up the sun... while Gabe got a fever of 102.6. We are guessing from heat exhaustion. Almost every little one in our family didnt feel well at one point. There is something to say about vacationing with babies... especially when there is NO AC!!! We got down there on thursday evening and the men got busy setting up the tents.... yes, that's right.... we slept in tents, in the front yard no less. What's Antimony without tents?! The days were pretty hot but the nights got absolutely FREEZING!! Dall, gabe and I had 4 or 5 large and heavy blankets over us. What an adventure. On Saturday, my Aunt Deb and Uncle Brent set up this awesome game of kickball for all of us to play. When you ran to the bases, there were big buckets of water waiting for you to put your feet in. Thats the only way you were safe. Then from 3rd base to home plate, there was this HUGE billboard size slip n slide with water and dish soap on it and when you ran to home, you HAD to slide! Some of us were good and some of were not so good. Dallas got a little into it, if you can imagine. Then we had a water balloon toss (like an egg toss with huge water balloons and towels) and that was really fun. Erin and I had very slippery fingers. We lost it for our team. Then we had a frozen T Shirt contest.... very fun! The fireworks were awesome over the reservoir but Gabe wasnt so thrilled. I spent that time in the car feeding him and covering him up with a blanket. Maybe next year he will like fireworks. We also had Volleyball tournaments, Chinese checker games, phase ten and a ton of other things that I cant recall right now. All in all, it was a great trip but we are glad to be back.
Here are some pics from the trip
