Gabe's new haircut!

Gabe had his second big haircut today.  Michael loves his hair long, and I love it short and spikey, so every few months we cut it and let it grow back long.  Here he is before (and happily eating ice cream) and after his big cut.  It's a bit shorter than we wanted, but fortunately his hair grows back fast!

all day he's been touching his head and saying "haircut"

Gabe hearts balls

Grandma Harris is in town visiting Gabe, and we decided to take all of Gabe's plastic balls outside to roll down the hill.  Gabe had a blast doing that, and then we had the idea to put them in his rainbow pool.  Bingo!  Here he is combining two of his very favorite things... playing outside, and playing with balls.

Baby #2 is a ......

You'll have to hear it from Gabe himself!  :D

Top picture is pretty easy to see.  Baby has its legs up over the head.  Second picture is a profile shot with the head on the left side.

Gabe in the SINK!

Our sneaky little stink pot!  The other day, Nana and I needed to get some things done, and we can usually buy time by putting Gabe on the counter.  He loves to be "up high" as he says.  Well, little by little, he inched his way from the counter to putting his feet in the sink.  Next he turned on the water.  Little by little - just like the frog in the boiling water - he made his way from the counter to completely in the sink, water running all over his lap.  :)   Needless to say, he had a blast.  Good news is, it kept him entertained long enough to get some chores done!  Since the mess was all contained IN the sink, my only cleanup was changing his clothes and soaking wet diaper.  

Gabe's vacuum dance

We found this play vacuum at a yard sale for 50 cents.  Whenever Gabe vacuums with it, he does a goofy little dance.  Hey - mommy has her signature "Happy dance", so it's natural that Gabe find a signature dance as well.  Enjoy!

Gabe and Nana at the Park

We have loved having Nana at our house for the past few weeks.  She and Gabe go on walks almost every day, and play at the park several days a week.  Here they are playing at the park tonight.
