Gabe is growing like crazy! He's already fitting into some of his 9 month clothes! I have so many cute 6 month clothes that I saved from Cameron and Gabe is already too big for most of them. It seems like he grew out of them over night!
We are finishing up our garden for the year. It seems like the only things we can grow well are tomatoes, carrots, and weeds.
Hubby's summer kitchen has been coming along nicely! It's been awesome to use for canning and cooking and keeping Cameron contained. Yesterday he put a door on the back so we can be ready to build a little deck on it next summer. Pretty soon we will be living out there and only using our house to store our junk. ;)

We've been spending a lot of time in the summer kitchen. I had a hard time understanding Hubby's plans for the old storage shed when he first explained it but now I get it and it is awesome!
And have you notice that I haven't mentioned anything about bats?! We haven't had any unwanted guests in the house all summer!

I'm planning more updates for tomorrow- lots of photos and stats from Gabe's two month check up!

Yesterday we had a two month checkup scheduled for Gabe. I was on the ball and determined to be on time. We were all showered- including myself! Cameron had one shoe on but I knew we could find the other one before it was time to go... Or maybe just a different pair. We were all fed. I had make up on and my hair was brushed. I was working on changing Gabe's diaper and thinking how thankful I was that he had an explosive poop at home instead of in the car seat or on my lap in the dr's office. And then it happened. Cameron started gagging. I stopped mid-diaper change to ask him if he was ok. He threw up all over his feet. I went back to Gabe in the pack n play and discovered that I hadn't wiped all the poop off his back. So now my clean baby was smeared with yellow poo- and so was his outfit and the pack n play. I started to wipe up this mess when Cameron started gagging again. This time he threw up on the living room rug. I ran over to him to try steer him back to the wood floor instead of the rug. I asked if he felt better and he said yes. Back to the baby- who is screaming. He's finally clean with a fresh diaper and outfit. I still have 10 minutes to get out the door. Cameron threw up again- this time in the kitchen. I realize I'm not going to win this fight and call the clinic. Gabe is still screaming. A strange truck has pulled into my driveway so my dog is barking- not normal barking, but "my family is in danger" barking. I'm sweating like a beast. The receptionist rescheduled our appointment. She didn't even laugh at me. I got Cameron cleaned up. I washed up his mess. I sat down to feed Gabe again and realized then that I hadn't changed my shirt like I had been planning to and was still wearing a very unattractive pajama shirt. So thank goodness for life's little blessings. If all of this wouldn't have happened, I would've went to the appointment wearing pajamas.

Oops! I'm behind!
Gabe started cooing and smiling this week! The 4th of July was lots of fun with lake time and friends!
Week 5- Gabe is growing like crazy! It's almost time to make the switch from 3 month clothes to 6 month clothes!
We spent lots of time with friends this week, too! The raspberries are ripe so we've been enjoying them. I think next year we will need more plants, or we will need to sweet talk the neighbors for buckets full. We had a picnic with Audrey and Claire. Then we spent the weekend with friends at the pool! Mommy made a mesh wrap so Gabe got to swim with us. Everyone loved the pool! Cameron got his first summer haircut. He looks like a different kid! So grown up!
Week 6- Gabe is so alert and such a good baby! He travels well, is only up a couple of times at night, and usually naps at the same time as Cameron.
Gabe got to take his first trip to Paul Bunyan yesterday! Cameron loves Paul's picture, but the big one that talks? No way! He was terrified, but I made him take a picture with Paul anyway.

Oops! I forgot to do a 3 week post! We were super busy this week getting ready for Cameron's 2nd birthday party!! It's hard to believe he's already two!
This week Gabe has been much more alert. And hungry!! He's growing like a champion! He has started to coo and make sounds. He sleeps so much better than Cameron ever did. We are usually only up 2 or 3 times at night! He loves bath time and being snuggled.
Cameron's new favorite word is "mine" so that has been fun. He's definitely two!! And he's started calling Hubby "papa." I'm not sure where he came up with that because he used to call him daddy! He loves to share his toys and read to his brother!
