Gabe...

First I have to say that I have the sweetest husband ever! I just saw his post today! Wow. I am SO blessed! (And wow that you actually posted something honey! Does that mean you actually look at our blog sometimes?!) As you can see, Gabe gets his good looks from his daddy! This is a picture of Robbie and Bree before going to the Daddy-daughter Valentine's Dance at our church. Bree was SO excited and they had a great time!

So I thought that even though blogging isn't the first thing on my list to do in the short (and mean SHORT) amount of spare time I have, I wanted to post some pictures of my beautiful son.
We are having such a wonderful time watching him grow, but especially watching Bree with him...
she just LOVES him! The cutest thing is how much she loves to hold his hand :) In the car, on the couch, while he's eating...I think it's because she always wants to hold her friends' hands, but they never want to. So finally someone who will hold her hand! (As if he has a choice right?!) Every time she holds him it's all about holding his hand too :) He is just the cutest little boy and we can't wait to see what he's like as he grows even more! Though, as a friend pointed out, the more children you have the less time you own for yourself, I am grateful that I have chosen this path and am trying to make every moment count! (Well, at least I am reminding myself of that when I am so tired and Gabe is sleeping but Bree is jumping off the couch!) God knew what he was doing when he let us be parents...adding a second child to our family is teaching me even more! Being a mom is the best!

I hear you sister! The image that pops into my head a lot is of a rough stone being slowly chipped at and polished. All of this work is helping us become who we're supposed to become! Love to you and your darling family!
