Dog Food Boy

This was the conversation coming from the bathroom the other night:

Tim: Gabriel, that is a no-no!!! BOYS do not eat dogfood!
Gabriel: (unfazed) crunch crunch crunch

That boy!! He does not really seem to understand why one cannot partake of the delights of such a readily-available, nutritious snack. Bleccch!! He is learning, albeit slowly.

We are having a good catch-up week from our trip. Gabriel has settled (thankfully) right back into his normal naptime schedule. He is really saying a lot of words now, or will repeat the word you tell him for an object. Yesterday he FINALLY got on a "Mama-mama-mama" kick that continued today - this is the first that I have really heard him make many "Ma" sounds. So it's nice to finally hear myself included in his conversational chatter. He seems to be making up for lost time!

He loves to walk outside, and it is just ADORABLE to walk behind him and watch those chubby little legs a'flyin! He is also into giving kisses recently. The other thing he has learned to do is blow dandelion seeds. I'm sure all of our neighbors think that is SO wonderful. :)

Oh, by the way, Gabriel says a belated "Happy Birthday!!!!" to his Grandpa Norm. :)
