Gabraham Lincoln: A Lesson in History + Hilarity

                          You guys might recognize me from such monuments as...The Lincoln Memorial...

hahahaha my house is made out of logs you guys...logs!


If I hide under my hat, John Wilkes Booth can't see me! Boo-ya!

This is my lawyer face.


Don't distract me guys! They're taking my tintype photograph for the 5 dollar bill!

To quote the great Axl Rose, what's so civil about war anyway?

This is the big one peeps. 6 whole months of Gabealiciousness. He is so awesome, I have the best time with him. It's insane to think about the first few weeks of his life, how I knew nothing. When I questioned every move I made. I'm still slightly paranoid about things but my oh my how relaxed I've become. We've actually started discussing, gulp, another one? Shut up, no not in the immediate future but now that we have things slightly under control, we're starting to actually re-visit the thought of more kiddos. Trust me, I always wanted a big fam, but those first few months of sleeplessness can have you questioning your sanity when it comes to another one.

Anyway, last week we celebrated six phenomenal months of this sweet kiddo. And the past month has been ha-uuuuge in terms of new things happenin. So Gabriel, in the past month, you...



- Gobbled down rice cereal, oatmeal, squash and carrots. You also tried green beans but gave me the throw up face too many times to warrant any more feeding attempts.

- Get up on your hands and knees, rocking back and forth, wanting to go somewhere, anywhere. Don't worry, as soon as you're old enough, you'll be doing Wendy's runs for your hungover parents. I always thought children were meant to be tiny butlers...

- Sit up on your own like a champ for awhile now.  You can go from sitting to your belly without face planting. And even though face plants are kinda funny, we're always happy to avoid any crying.

- Test the durability of your Baby E exersaucer by banging on the piano like a madman. An-e-mallll!!!!!

- Realized that you have control over the noises your little toys make. You shake your keys to make them clickety-clack and bang your stuffed giraffe against anything to make it squeak.  Mama's choosing to think this is all progress and not just early signs of you being the playground bruiser...

- Play catch with Daddy and Sebbi on the floor with your balls. Heh. Your toys, I should say.

- Sat up in your stroller facing forward (like a big boy!). Now you can see how annoying everyone is head-on. Sorry pal, I shielded you as long as I could.

- Got your 3rd chomper!  In addition to the 2 on the bottom, a top front tooth has made it's way through.

- Started sleeping through the night! All it took was a little gentle nudging from your mom and dad, along with a couple middle of the night interuptions and you were golden.  You must have finally realized how awesome sleeping is.

- Got sick for the first time. As soon as mom and dad got smacked with some viral infections, it was only a matter of time before you started the saddest little coughs. You woke up one day with a fever so we took you to the doctor. They told us you had an upper respitory infection and put you on antibiotics.  This was also on top of you teething, so those were a rough couple of days.

We love you buddy bear! Happy 1/2 Birthday!

It took Gabbers 6 months to accept that he is going to get dressed up every month. You can see the acceptance in his face. :)

I have to admitt, you tricked me. I thought for sure you'd go with Washington, but you one-upped me and pulled out a Lincoln. Well done, madam, well done.

This is awesome!

OMGahhh! Too cute. LOVE the tiny beard. Also, what's with the brick house to the left of Little gAbe's head? Don't you know Lincoln was raised in a log cabin? Well, the real Lincoln wasn't this cute either, so I guess I can pass on the discrepancy...

Happy Half-Birthday little dude!

Mandy said...

So darn cute and your play by plays always crack me up. 6 months! Yay!

*claire* said...

i really wish i could have seen you, hunched over, making that tiny little beard, grinning maniacally (or, at least, that's how i picture it happening!)

love this. you have one-upped yourself each time! these pics are the highlight of my months. he's really smart to figure out the beauty of sleep - that, and his balls, i mean, toys :)

Kelly said...

Erin @ Domestic Adventure said...

Happy Birthday, Gabe!! What an adorable photo shoot and an impressive list of accomplishments. I really love the sleeping through the night part...

Our guy will be 2 months tomorrow and I keep thinking about what a difference 2 months makes...I can't even imagine how much more "normal" we'll feel at 6!

Becky said...

This is the best costume yet! Happy 6 months Gabe!

Project Shannon said...

Can I tell you how much I look forward to these Gabe photos?! I don't even know him and I get tickled excited.

Katie said...

It's amazing to see his pics lined up in order, and how much he's grown! Months 1-3 look so different than 3-6. Buddy is busy growing! I miss. We need to plan a date where we all hang with babes and adults.

ashley morgan said...

These posts have become my favorites! You are so creative, and I want to eat him he's so cute.

Isrut said...

Gaberham Lincoln! So cute. Congrats on making it through the first 6 months

brookie said...

L O V E this. I remember when he was born. Gabe is becoming such a big man. I love these pictures of him. It's so funny.

Super Pump, Uncle, that is. said...

Hey skippers, Did you know that Lincoln was born in Kentucky, not in Illinois, a fact that most people are mistakened? Uncle Pump is so proud, and drunk.

According to Ashley said...

These pictures kill me dead every single month. LOVE IT.

Kim @ NewlyWoodwards said...

I do love myself a good beard. Honest Gabe might be my favorite dress-up month so far. The resemblance in uncanny.

Ali said...

"My house is made out of logs you guys...logs!"

HAHAHA. Dude, Gabe is the man. The Mancipation Rockclamation.

Shelly said...

OH EM GEE!! Love this, so hilarious!

Oonafey said...

He seriously gets cuter every month! His facial range is pretty impressive, he should be a baby model. You guys would clean up! lol

Kelly @ Dare to be Domestic said...

*thump* that's me dead on the ground from HIS CUTENESS!!! I love all these ideas - I get anxious every month to see what you do next!!!
