Gabriel 4 Months Old...

Wow, time sure does fly, and I am getting slow and a bit behind on Gabriel's monthly updates. Our little baby Gabe is now 4.5 months old and growing like a weed.


Our favourite little man is sick right now :( Poor baby had a terrible ear infection and cold, but is looking much better lately. I knew something was up because he wasn't his normal, happy cheerful self. We had out regular 4 month appointment scheduled (a tad bit late because our Dr was away) and when we got there he was just screaming. Poor baby. We got a script for antibiotics, and no needles since he wasn't feeling well. So after a few days of his antibiotics, Tylenol, and lots of cuddles he is smiling again and still not 100% but on his way there!

Anyways I will stop babbling and get onto some pictures of this cutie!

Yup. I did it. I'm that mom. I put my baby in a pumpkin. He wasn't too impressed and all he really wanted to do was eat it. I was able to snap a couple okay pictures before he totally freaked out on me haha

Here is my strong little boy on his tummy. With his crazy hair do. I always tried to brush it after his bath but I give up because when he wakes up in the morning this is what it looks like. And he always get compliments on it, so I think we are just gonna roll with it.

At 4 Months Old:
  • 13lbs 9oz and 26 inches long
  • We have rolled from our tummy to our back, but only a handful of times, and only when naked/not wearing any pants...weird child
  • Looooves to be naked
  • Squealing and screaming in delight, hilarious to hear
  • Smiles and giggles all the time
  • Awake more and more
  • Favourite toy is his hanging Lamaze Butterfly and of course his Baby Einstein Activity Mat (this is the only way I get things done some days)
And I will leave you with my little Elephant on Halloween! Hehe, such a cutie pie!
And As always...

Busy Busy Busy

It's that time of year. The holiday season is fast approaching, I even saw snowflakes in the air yesterday (**gasp** I know, the horrors). I am busy, busy, busy getting ready for upcoming craft fairs. I am participating in three of them this year!

We went to the doctor today for my monkey's 4 month check-up. My poor little man has a nasty ear infection. No needles for him, antibiotics and cuddles are in order instead. I hope he feels better soon. Needless to say between being a mommy to my sick little man and getting ready for the first of my upcoming craft shows this weekend, I won't have too much blog activity this week!

I hope you all have a wonderful week though and I promise to share pictures and details of my Craft Shows as soon as I can. If you are local and in the area please come visit me on Saturday at the Listowel Kin Station from 9am - 2pm, I would love to see you there!

Happy Stamping,

Gabriel's Christening

Last weekend my baby boy was baptised! Things are moving so quickly, I can't believe that he was 4 months old on Tuesday! Don't worry, it's not all about my little cutie, I also have a card to share with you, or rather an invite.
This is the invitation I made for Gabriel's Christening. I got the idea out of the Catalogue (always a great place for inspiration). I switched up the framelit and colours but the rest is about the same. I love this stamp set, it's so delicate and sweet.
My Special Day
Ink: Soft Suede
Paper: Bashful Blue, Whisper White, So Saffron
Accessories: Labels Framelits, Bitty Banners Framelits, Basic Pearls, Polka Dot Embossing Folder

Here is the great cake my mom got for Gabe!

And because no blog post would be complete without a picture of my cutie! Here we are as a family. I am terrible at getting pictures of myself with Gabe, so this is impressive haha.
Happy Stamping,
