Turn around

I made a School book for Gabriel, documenting a day in the life of Gabriel in school.  He really enjoys reading it and he now enjoys going to school!!!!! He actually said, "Mommy I want to go to school".

Argentina trip

We went to Argentina in late October. It was a good trip but very exhausting.
*Gabriel was fascinated by all the statues. He constantly asked, what statue is that? and what is he doing? I answered, San Martin is standing to all his questions.
*Every time we left our apartment Gabriel would touch the building and say "This is Argentina."
*Because of Noah's appetite we renamed him "Super Pancho"

"I was sad today"

Gabriel still has a hard time going to school.  When I pick him up he tells me, "Mommy, I was sad today."

Brial Brial

When Gabriel was at school today, Noah pointed to Gabriel's carseat and said, Brial, Brial." I guess his misses his brother.

School Blues :(

For the 2nd time in a row Gabriel wasn't thrilled about going to school. As we approached the building Gabriel started saying, "Go the other way, other way." He started crying getting all upset. I felt like just taking him home and forgetting the whole thing. But I started to sing a song about school and he went along with it. When we got to the class he got upset again. Molly heard us and came out to tell Gabriel what they were doing inside. We walked in together and he seemed to be OK. This is very hard for Mommy.

1st Hair cut

Noah got his first haircut at 16 months. Gabriel got his at over 2 years old but Noah's hair was in need of some help sooner. He wasn't crazy about the event but he didn't cry.

So many words!

Noah is 16 months old and talking up a storm. He most used words are : ball, up, mas, popo, mama, ayia, nooow (no), dada, peas, baaaa, meowwww. He uses no when he's doing something he's not supposed to do, like throwing food off his highchair and looks you in the eye and say noooow.

1st day of school

We have been drilling Gabriel about his 1st day of school. Mommy will take you to school and you will see your teachers and friends and then mommy will walk out the door and come back when school is finished. He knew the drill and never looked back. The boys in the class cried but Gabriel got down to bussiness and played. It defienitly was harder for me. My little baby is growing up :(

Week at the beach

We spent a week at Bethney Beach. For the most part the boys had a good time.
Gabriel really enjoyed the beach, sand and water....Noah not so much. But he did like playing in the showers by the exit.
Gabriel didn't like the Funland. The firetruck ride started out well but he wanted out of the boat ride. Too much stimulation I think.

Poopie in there?

I just put Gabriel's poopy diaper in a trash bag. He came with me as I took it to the dumpster. Gabriel's poopie's in there? Yes, Gabriel it is. The next day we walked by a man throwing away his trash away. Man throwing away his poop? I try to hurry Gabriel along but Gabriel keep repeating the question. I am not sure if he heard but I didn't stick around to find out :)

Happy Birthday Mommy!!

Mom celebrated her 41st Birthday with the boys on Sat. But according to Gabriel mom's 8. Every time you ask him he answers 8. Fine by me :)
After singing Happy B-Day Noah started to blow the candles and when we were done Gabriel said, Open presents next!"

Look who's walking!!!

Noah began "really" walking today. Abuelo was visiting and I told Noah to walk for him. He started off in the kitchen, turned the corner, went through the family room and stopped and the stairs. He is quite a sight to see. His arms are up and he's got this grin on his face, that says, "wow I am walking!"

Gabriel walked at a little over 15mon. and Noah made it right before he turned 15mon.

They both also started crawling after 10mon.

They are very competitive that way :)

Gabriel is very into Birthday parties. Especially singing Happy B-day and blowing out the candles. Last Sunday we went to Katie's 1st Birthday. Gabriel walk in the door head to the kitchen and says, "I need cake."

"one upon a time"

Recently we have been telling Gabriel oral stories, starting with Once upon a time. The stories generally involve him and rocket and a castle. Gabriel becomes so enthralled with these stories. He constantly asks for more. If he is ever upset I say, "Once upon a time," and he instantly calms down and listens.

Sit and Spin

The other day I noticed Noah spinning around in a circle (sitting and using his feet to spin). I started to sing, "around and around we go...spin, spin around. So know when I say, Noah spin around, he does just that....very cute!

When to the pool today. Gabriel is really enjoying it now. He says he's a seal and he goes around the baby pool walking on his hands, his feet dragging behind. He's content to mostly play alone, just going around the pool on his hands and talking to himself.

Is it.......?

"Is it......." Lately Gabriel has been posing everything in the form of a question. When we went to White Flint mall Gabriel asked, "Is it White?"
He pointed to the T.V., "Is it a toy?" Picks up a blue book..."Is it blue?" I guess he's just reiterating what he already knows.
