Catching Up

It has been too long since we last updated with pictures of Gabe, so bare with me as there are a lot of pictures with this post!  We have been blessed with some amazingly beautiful weather that has prompted a lot of outside time soaking in the sun and chasing down a very busy toddler. 

Our backyard has turned into a bit of a swamp with all the rain (and bad drainage) so Gabe mostly plays in the front yard.  He loves his car, but he mostly loves pushing it down the driveway while I run after it.  At least I get some exercise and am rewarded with hearing one of the sweetest sounds, Gabe's laugh.
A few weeks back, Gabe had his third hair cut.  This was the first haircut where a lot of hair was left on the ground.  We love his golden locks but were tired of it always being in his eyes.  Gabe was a champ and the stylist claimed he looks like Justin Beiber.  I disagree, Gabe is much cuter. 

We had a family trip to the Children's Museum after church one Sunday.  Gabe showed his daddy all the fun things he does there and Daddy showed Gabe how pulley's work!

Because the weather has been so nice, we've been spending lots of time at the park.  Gabe loves to swing, he loves to slide and he is getting awesomely good at climbing on the jungle gym.  He is so tenacious that I'm not sure why I was surprised the first time he just pulled himself up and ascended to the top. 

 The downside of all this beautiful weather (and rain! yes, it's finally raining in Houston) is that Matt has a lot more yard work to do.  At least he has a cute helper!
Gabe has learned to cheese it up for the camera.  And I can't even begin to count the number of pictures we've taken like the one below. 
 When the sun has set or the rain is falling, Gabe can be found at the base of his book case, perusing his books.  He's gotten past the point of just pulling them out to create a mess but pulls them out one at a time and 'reads' through each one.  I especially like when he reads allowed. 
And that is a little snippet of what we've been doing while our computer has been away.  Our computer is still away, and had better be working like brand new when we get it back.  But Gabe and I are now in Ohio, so we could finally post some pictures! 

Have a great week!
