AFTER ONLY ONE LESSON.....

Last week nate and I decided that we were going to try to "channel" gabe's energy somehow.
So after a little research I found a trial class at a local Gymnastics place and we thought we would try it out.

Well, during the class I think gabe was COMPLETELY overwhelmed and he wanted to run around everywhere and do everything instead of listen to the teacher. But, I guess this little boy is a better multi-tasker then I thought!

After just that one 40 minute class he came home and did this!

(ps - I promise he owns a shirt, he just finished eating dinner!)

18 MONTH STATS

I have a little weed on my hands! We just got back from Gabe's 18 month appointment and it turns out that Gabe is getting so tall! (it helps that one grandpa is 6'5 and the other 6'2)

Gabe's Stat's:
Height: 94%
Weight: 50%
Head: 57%

HE IS SO TALL!
He for sure doesn't get it from me!

WHAT YOU DO WHEN YOUR HUSBAND IS AWAY...

TURN HIS OFFICE INTO A PLAY ROOM!!!!!

There are yellow stars on the right wall that you can't see in this picture very well.
It still has a lot to do like curtains, a pillow top for the window seat, frames for the toy story posters you can't see, and a fun light fixture. But you get the idea.

As you can see it is a big hit with gabe (and some of the neighborhood kids as well!)
Can anyone guess what the theme of the room is? I didn't show you pictures of the main decor just so it wouldn't give it away...



(*I have just posted 3 new posts so keep scrolling down to see the fun pictures*)


GABE'S FIRST HAIRCUT!

We FINALLY did it!

Gabe had his first haircut 2 weeks ago (life has been nuts, sorry for the late post). He was such a brave boy and didn't even cry once. He did keep swatting the girl away with his hand like "what do you think you're doing?" But he did it!


The next day I took gabe around the gardens and I thought I would take a few shots of his 'new due' as he walked around.

What a little ham! But his hair sure does look cute!




And, YES, he still has the curls! YIPEE!!!

PART 2 (of the joy's of a 1 year old...)


I think that I could just do a continual post named "The Joy of Having A 1 Year Old". Gabe is at such a fun age! He is getting into EVERYTHING. And I mean that literally. He is putting himself into EVERYTHING......

One of his favorite things to do on laundry day is take the hamper and walk around with it on his head! He literally walks EVERYWHERE with it on him!

Another thing he likes to do on laundry day...


I had to take out the toaster which sits on that shelf and he took advantage of the empty space...


This is tight on both sides so he decided he wanted to climb over the towels to get back there and "chill".

AND WHEN I SAY "GET'S INTO" EVERYTHING....



I swear I watch him like a hawk! I don't know how he does this so fast!

I know that there are many more pictures I am sure I can post, but man does this boy keep me on my toes! But I sure love him!
