Gabriel: 1 month

My big boy is back to being a big boy.  He had lost 9oz at his one week appointment so we were excited to see that since then he has put on two pounds and is up two inches from birth too. He's a growing machine!  No wonder he loves sleeping and eating so much.  He is a wonderful little guy who loves being held and is learning to love his brother's constant affection.  He's getting into a night time routine that is pretty nice.  He's down for the night at 9:30 and up around 1:30 and again at 4 or 5 before getting up at 8.  I am enjoying that schedule very much, but I am definitely looking forward to eventually getting down to one wake up a night!  

 He looks surprised about being a month old

Just a little brotherly love

He's not sure about this whole thing

Maybe they aren't so bad after all

Gabriel's newborn photo shoot

Gabriel had his newborn photo shoot when he was one week old. He did a wonderful job of posing and being easily calmed down and put back to sleep so we could continue.  The wonderful Mindy Chase Photography took these shots.  Here's just a few.  Not putting them all up is so hard!  She does amazing work!

Ok, I know it's the same picture, but I love it in color and in B&W.  I couldn't choose.

 Look what we caught!
 The clock is set to his time of birth.

My little love.

If you ever need photos taken, family, maternity, newborn, children's milestones, senior pics, etc, call her up.  Her work is always great and she has wonderful ideas to share and knows how to work with you to get the best photos.  I can't say enough good things about her work.  I am lucky to have her as a friend and photographer.  I'm going to have a hard time picking which ones to use around my home.  I love my little Gabriel.
