I'M BACK!

All I have to say is...
Gabe's 3 hour naps are AMAZING!

enjoy the updates on the pictures!

A day in the park

Don't you love nice weather?

I am so glad that it is nice now that he is old enough to be outside 
and WANT to be out there!

Gabe just loves being with his daddy!
  (even though you really can't tell in this picture)


Gabe LOVES to move!  He has always been that way.  


WAHOO!  GO FASTER!


I love parks!  What a change of pace from the norm.  
I highly recommend them if you have a child!

Gabe's new favorite hobby

The jumper swing.....
Whoever invented this was a genius!

Here is what gabe looked like when he first started to try the jumper swing....


And this is him just a few days later bouncing as high as he can!  
Such a great way to entertain him as I am cooking dinner.

Solids, FINALLY!

After MUCH deliberation, we finally decided that Gabe was certainly ready for solids!
And you would sure say he was!

Here is a blurry picture taken from my phone of him wanting more!


ooh, doesn't that look appetizing!

He is looking at nate saying "why didn't you give this to me sooner?"


"I LOVE THIS STUFF!"

Drum Roll......


MOM CHECKETT'S GRADUATION


After 2 years of crazy hours, long nights, and many research papers later, I am so proud
to say that my mother in law just graduated with her Masters from Columbia University!

We went out for an amazing week to celebrate the AMAZING accomplishment.
(and here is grandma excited to be a grandma again, instead of a student!)


We drove EVERYWHERE this weekend and cute uncle Ben ended up being the "pillow"
for my niece Abigail.


Gabe LOVES his uncles and can't ever get enough of them!
This is him with his uncle spencer.

We decided to have a fun night and head to Cheesecake factory for dinner.
After an hour wait, we finally were able to eat!

Then here is my nephew Connor after a long, but VERY fun weekend.
I know how you feel connor!

100 DAY CHALLENGE

Today my family is starting something called
the 100 DAY CHALLENGE.
It is simple, yet so exhausting!

We start off small, with one push up and one sit up
 then tomorrow we do two sit ups and two push ups
until 100 days go by and we end up doing a total of
5,050 push ups and 5,050 sit ups!

YIKES!

What were we thinking?
