sleep in heavenly peace

Gabe had a great Christmas...we all did! He's fast asleep now. We started out yesterday by going to Grandma Marcia's. Gabe got lots of clothes and toys.
We then went to Grandma and Grandpa Beiting's and got a grocery cart that is the perfect height to practice standing.

On Christmas day, we spent the morning together. Our good friend Erin came by to visit. We then went to the extended Maher family and Beiting family. It was such a great time.

I forgot to post last week that we're working on walking with the walker our PT got us. Gabe is still figuring out, but at least he likes it.

Merry Christmas everyone!

great weekend

We had a really great weekend. On Friday Justin and I had a night out which was tons of fun and much needed. We had a great time at Belterra. We went to lunch on Saturday for Justin's Grandma's 90th birthday. Today we went to Union Terminal Children's Museum with the DSAGC and saw the toy trains (and Santa again). Then later today we went to a football party. I'm wiped. Gabe is doing well. He's been blowing rasberries at us for the past 2 weeks while he is eating. Today he actually did really well. He has had a little cold that I think he's finally getting over and actually ate really well today without spraying me with food.

Ho Ho Ho

Gabe met Santa and Rudolph today at the DSAGC Holiday Lunch and Awards Ceremony. I thought he would freak out, but he clapped and smiled and was very excited to meet them. He must be trying to butter them up so he'll get some really good presents.

December here we come!

We have been very busy around here lately with lots of holiday fun. Gabe is doing well. We're really pushing the honey bear cup lately to try to get him to drink out of a straw. He puts his lips around around the straw well...just needs to figure out how get the liquid out. We have also been working alot on transitioning movements from sitting to crawling and sitting to standing. He is doing very well with it...just requires lots of repitition. Gabe has also been very loud lately. He is making some great sounds. He can BZZZZ like a bee and say BRRRRRR when it's cold out...too cute.
