Three years ago (about) we were doing this sort of thing.
A squalling new baby Gilbert
The girls didn't get to meet him until the next day, in the NICU. Glad we didn't have to go through that again.
Baby Gilbert snuggles
Gilbert meeting Papa Mick
Hanging out with cousins
Three years later, we are doing this sort of thing.
Chocolate frosting face
Licking the beater with Aunt Tori
A daddy and Elsie
Making sure everyone noticed the burning candles on HIS cake
Hooray! We can eat it now!
We didn't go fast enough for him--he had to get some frosting with his hand.
A tool set from Livie and Tori. Joy!
A bouncing bull. Teaches balance, coordination, and essential bull-riding skills.
And we saved this one for last because this is the essence of Gilbert. Do something silly and then find it hugely hilarious.
I am a lucky mommy to have such a boy!
