i can't believe how big gabe has gotten! it seems like only yesterday that he was barely crawling, only army crawling. now he is run/crawling. he takes off down the hallway at top speed.
the other day he had four teeth. then i looked in his mouth yesterday and...were did tooth number five and six come from!?! he won't need baby food for very much longer with all of these teeth.
this weekend was a preview of how things are going to be in the future. we were running errands and jorge and i wanted lunch. gabe had a pouch of food and then he got a hot dog all to himself! of course i had to peel the skin off and cut it into tiny pieces, but it was weird ordering him his own food. we went to our favorite mexican restaurant after beatlefest, and gabe had big kid food there too. he had a tamale, and a quesadilla with guacamole. where did this big kid come from and where did my little baby go?!YES! he even bit the quesadilla!
i know that everyone says enjoy them, they grow up so quickly. and i have enjoyed every minute, i just want some of the minutes to last a little longer. i love some things that i know he is going to grow out of like slobbery, open mouthed kisses and hugs so tight you wonder where he gets all of this strength. and even though he is heavy, i will miss it when he no longer wants me to carry him. it is exciting that he is growing and changing and that i have this blog to record it all. i hope i won't want another once he's a toddler for real!
