Gabriel is officially eight. I can tell this is going to be a good year for him. He's gone through some rough patches adjusting to his new demanding school and making friends here in Fort Collins but things are beginning to look up. Gabe is a sweetheart. He is so sensitive and tender, always quick to volunteer to help and say yes ma'am. He is also my jumping bean. On his 12 week ultrasound this peanut sized fetus was already in high gear and has never stopped since then. At 10 days old he was jumping on my lap and crawling at 5 months. Talking by 11 months and reading by 3. You may have heard me say that he as more energy than a bouncy ball and that he doesn't seem to need as much sleep as regular children, this is all still true. Good thing he is old enough to hand a book to now and say 'it's time to read' or 'please read to your brothers and sister.' Gabe loves being a little boy. He loves to shoot hoops, jump on the trampoline, play with friends, collect pokemon cards, be silly, and just laugh. He is a joy to be around.
Happy Birthday Gabe!!!
