3 months old today!

He likes to read while he swings. We're teaching him early.

Wow. Three months have gone by fast! You probably won’t be too surprised to know that Gabriel has doubled his birth weight and has grown 6 inches! He’s now 14 pounds and 25 inches long. I knew he was growing and doing well because he has been quickly outgrowing many of his clothes.

He’s a sweet baby and pretty easy to take care of. His times of fussiness are few and far between. He generally hates his car seat but usually settles down once we get moving. He has been sleeping through the night for about 3 weeks now. Woo hoo! Go ahead and talk smack about me, you, the same women who gave me a hard time about my fast labors! I know you want to!

What else can I tell you about Gabriel? Well, the doorknob, ceiling fans, and the characters on the boppy are his friends. He likes to look at them and smile. He smiles quite often and has even given some chuckles here and there. He likes to look at Micah, but so far Micah is still not that interested in returning his gaze. Someday.

So, happy 3 month birthday to Gabriel; he brings more joy into our family.

What beautiful, handsome photos of a cute, little guy. Guess he's going to try and outdo Micah in his growth curve!!. Thanks for the photos. We are jubilant for you that he sleeps through the night and is a 'good baby.' He has great parents, too! and a precious brother.

I can't believe Gabriel is already three months old. Just look at how much your life has changed in that time.
I am praying for Micah to come around with his little brother.
Love you,
