As I was looking through some earlier posts, I realized that I haven't really mentioned Gabriel much on my blog. I suppose the older kiddos have more interesting stories (a 12-week-old doesn't exactly say silly things or do silly things)! But he's certainly worth talking about, so here is a post just for him! :o)
He arrived on November 19th, and he has been a great baby right from the start! Besides a tiny scare in the hospital that involved a respiratory issue (they think he ingested some amniotic fluid) things have been so perfect. He's been on a schedule since day one, nursing every three hours on the dot! This is a blessing by itself considering most babies who nurse are every two hours, and Sarah, my two-year-old, wasn't on a schedule at all! He's a great sleeper and has slept through the night a handle full of times...the other nights he gets up once, and I'm trying to wean him from night time feedings.
I love his sweet smile, and though he doesn't exactly laugh yet, he does make a cute giggle-type sound. He even "talks" to us when we talk to him!
Being the third child means mommy isn't quite as good at taking pictures or sending mass emails about the littlest thing! :o) But I do adore him. He's so fun to cuddle with, and I look forward to watching him grow!
(FYI: The picture was taken without him being "buckled in" just for the sake of the cute sleeper. I wanted to be able to see it, so don't worry, we always buckle him!) :o)
Maybe You Need This As Much As I Do
