We had a great weekend with the kids. And of course, we talked a lot about next weekend when we make the EIGHT HOUR drive to Montana to spend Easter with Ryan's family. Ryan's brother has never met Gabe, Linda hasn't seen him since Thanksgiving, and Scott hasn't seen him since he was about 4 weeks old. I can only hope they are as excited to see us as we are to see them. MUCH LOVE TO YOU ALL!

I tooks lots of pictures and these are some of my favorites. This is one of Ryan pushing Gabe in the swing.
And Ryan was kind enough to snap this one of Gabe and I. I think Ryan and I were having more fun with the swing than Gabe was. He just seemed cold and would occasionally crack a tiny smile because we were dancing around like idiots trying to entertain him.
And here is a close up of Gabe-zilla having his first ride in a swing.
And finally this is such an AMAZING picture of Sera! I wish I could take the credit but Ryan was the one to get this. And it was hard because when Sera knows she is on camera she will act cheesey and silly. So he spent quite some time secretly snapping pictures and caught her here having so much fun! And honestly, this is one of my most favorite pictures of Sera EVER!
This first picture is from yesterday when we gave Gabe his first bath in the kitchen sink. The first time he splashed the water with his hand he stopped, looked at his hand, and started to splash all the water from the sink. The floor was one GIANT puddle by the time we finished the bath.
This one shows just how flexible this little man is. And he loves eating his feet. I am not sure why babies love this but I am sure glad that they do because it makes for adorable pictures!!!
And finally this picture shows just how good Gabe is at sitting up. We have been really working with him so that by the time we headed to Montana for Easter he would be able to sit up on his own. This picture makes me oh so proud of him!

Today has been much better though. His eye is still a little goopy but his mood has improved so much. He is still pretty sleepy and gets a little fussy as well but I can tell he is feeling better. This is good because if he hadn't stopped crying soon I was going to give him to the Goblin King. (JUST KIDDING!)

After building block time was over "someone" started throwing blocks (NO! NOT ME) and one thing led to another and Sera ended up getting pegged in the face by a not-so-soft red bridge looking thing. Ryan tends not to know his own strength and while trying to play, instead smacked Sera in the face with a block. Sera didn't cry and there was no mark, I think it startled her more than anything. And I will be honest that it was all Bec and I could do not to burst out laughing.
We also had dinner and played one game of Killer Bunnies. After all that Becca headed home and I read Sera a very long book about kangaroos. Fun fact: kangaroos cannot go backwards because their tails are too long.
It was a great night with the family. Ryan was really tired and didn't feel up to going out anywhere and now I am okay with that. It was such a quiet but fun night at home with my family. But in hindsight maybe instead of reading a book about kangaroos we should have read one about shapes...triacticle...

P.S. For those of you who are interested, Gabe had his 6 month doctor's appointment today. He weighs 19 pounds 9 ounces which puts him into the 81% for his weight. And he is 28 & 1/2 inches tall which puts him into...get ready for this Internet...the 96% for his height! Can I get a woot woot?

But no matter how cranky you get Bubs, we will always love you unconditionally. It is hard for me to believe that you are really six months old but as I look back at this blog and see everything you have done, I can only be excited for what will come next. Thank you for making these past 6 months the BEST 6 months of my life Gabriel Scott. I love you very much and hope your next 6 months are just as amazing as the first.
