Happy Halloween! I apologize for the delay in blogging, but Gabe's Mom hasn't been feeling too good! The last 2 days, I've been achy all over and I've had a fever, along with glands in my neck that feel like they're the size of grapefruits! Ugh. Today's Halloween and I will get myself up off the couch to take Gabey out for a bit tonight. I will definitely post pics of him dressed up.
Gabe started going to a babysitter on Monday. So far, things have gone great! He did hit another little girl there on Monday, but she was in his face! What was he supposed to do?? We really like his babysitter and feel very comfortable with him being there. I do selfishy hope that he always remembers his mommy though. I am a little worried that he'll like her better than me. I know, that sounds silly, but it really does bother me a little.
Sorry this is kind of a Debbie Downer post today!!
Have a Happy Halloween!!

He's becoming more independent. While he was playing, I was watching. I am just overwhelmed sometimes at how much I love this little guy. He looks so little, yet so big playing all by himself.
Along with becoming a big boy, we've had some big boy challenges. He has started hitting. He's developed a little temper and honestly, its tough to discipline him. If he hits, we say "No no, Gabe." and then he looks at us and hits again! I don't know if its just because he's a baby and he's little and doesn't know any better, but it kinda scares me for those teenage years! He also arches his back and starts crying. If anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears!
Well, I'd better get ready for work! It's about that time...

We tried out a new church today. It really felt good to be back in church. I have to admit we have not been good about taking Gabe to church. It just seems so much easier to sleep in on Sundays and have a lazy day. But, as his parents, it is our responsibility to teach him about God. We enjoyed the church we visited today, I'm just not sure its "the one". I think its worth another visit though. I really dislike church "shopping". I miss our old church home. It's where I thought we'd raise our family. Things don't always turn out the way you plan...
I guess these are pretty good for a beginner. Practice, practice, practice!
I just realized this entry is really long! I apologize to anyone reading this! It's a rarity that my son is in bed at 8:30, so I'm taking advantage of being on the computer! Tuesday, Gabe's birth family is coming to visit at our house. I'm really looking forward to seeing them again. It's amazing how easy it is talk to them - not even a year ago, we were strangers. Now, we are linked together forever by a child. It truly has been an amazing experience. I really look forward to a great evening together. I'm sure this will be the most Gabe's changed to them yet. He's all over the place! I can't wait for them to see his personality either.
I am smiling now as I think of just how blessed we are for all of this to have worked out.

It's late and I want to go to bed! Weekend recap: Friday - Gabe's 9 mo pictures (I will post some soon!) & Uncle Dan's football game. Saturday - Sister In Law Jen's Pampered Chef Party & took Uncle Dan's second Senior picture session. Sunday - Scrapbooked with Marya from 10-5 & went to Nicolays for the Bears vs. Packers game. Ugh! I feel even more tired after reading that! Here are some of Dan's photos...
I love these guys!

Wow. I haven't been a very good blogger this week! I have good reason... Greg's been gone since Tuesday morning on a business trip, so it's just been me & this handsome little man all week:
Ok, when I say I mean all week, I guess I'm really talking about 3 days. It's been tough though... I don't know how single parents do it. Gabe has been excellent. He has started waving bye bye! And look at him in these little man jammies... too cute. He looks so grown up. I just can't believe that in 10 days, my little boy is going to be 9 months old. Time has just gone by so quickly.
