Update on new baby life....

So far so good....that is how life has been since little Gabriel made his GRAND entrance. :) He has been a sweet baby and the boys seem to be doing ok with him. Greggory's favorite thing to do is hold him as much as possible. As you can see from the below picture! JT still isn't sure what to think of him, but I am sure in time he will get it all figured out!

Grammie with Gabriel. We realized we had NO pictures of the two of them together. I swear it is SO hard to remember to take pictures of your 4th!!!!

I was trying to get a good picture of Gabriel and JT said you should take one with ME in it. I totally agree!!! :)

Greggory had a Moments with Mom at school and this was the older boys. Gabriel was home with daddy who was able to take off the whole week and spend it with us. Boy was I sure sad he had to return to work. Sure wish he could stay home FOREVER! Bradley is all dressed up because he made the All-Star football team at his middle school and on game days they have to dress up. Too bad he lost his clothes. Yah, shoes, slacks, belt, shirt and oh the tie Matt wore to our wedding. Oh joy!

Little Gabers taking a rest in the bouncy chair. He prefers to lay down while sleeping. Don't think he stayed like this for long.

Again as you can see Greggory and Gabers. Any chance he can get to hold him. It's so sweet. He is SUCH a GREAT big brother!

This was his Happy Valentine's outfit. I was so excited when I bought it and even MORE excited that it fit! I bought the super small one and I was afraid it would be too small and then too late to buy another one! I bought it back in January.

Bradley holding Gabriel. I realized I didn't have any pictures of him holding the baby either. He isn't as interested in the baby as I thought he would be. I am sure once he starts doing things he will get more excited!

Look at those GIANT hands. Maybe he will be the one who plays basketball. Of all the sports the other guys play None of them have any luck with basketball. Heck they can't even get their clothes in the hamper let alone a ball in a hoop!!!

And last, but certainly NOT least a picture of the two birthday cakes. That is right. One week after Gabriel was born Matthew turned 33 and Bradley 13!!! Ohmigosh! I have a baby and a teenager. How did this happen again? :)
For the most part everything is going pretty well over here. I like to think it's too early to really tell how it will all go, but Gabriel is a very sweet little guy. We are really enjoying having him around and I know I am REALLY enjoying not having to the be the ONLY one carrying him around! :)

Gabriel Andrew

Gabriel Andrew was born on Thursday, February 5, 2009 at 2:53 in the afternoon! This is a picture of me before he was born!

Here is a picture of Gabriel right after he was born....What a big boy! 7 lbs 6 oz and 20 inches long!

Dr. Eckel, me and Gabriel just after he was born.

Look at his giant hands. It makes us laugh everytime he pulls them out of his blankets!

Daddy holding the little man....

So bright eyed. The doctor had checked him and he was just watching thinking hey what's up?

Gabriel just finished eating and was so sleepy after.

We were getting out of the hospital. Had to take some goodbye pictures!

Mommy and Gabriel...

Family photo leaving the hospital!!

The dogs are meeting Gabriel for the first time. Jag just wanted to lick him and Roxie would get near him and then just growl and run. It was pretty funny. She is doing much better now!

We are so excited to have him home with us. His brothers come home on Monday so there will be more pictures to post then. He is such a sweet baby and I honestly hope it continues!!!! Love to everyone!
