Gabriel’s First Christmas

We were fortunate enough to be able to take Gabriel to Texas to meet my family for Christmas – three great-grandparents, three great-aunts, two great-uncles, and five cousins. Traveling with a baby is exhausting, but Gabriel lived up to his name and was a real angel during the trip. He was so good on both the flight to Houston and the flight back to Seattle, sleeping most of the way on his daddy’s lap, and being sweet and cuddly the rest of the time. He laughed and cooed when his relatives held him and kept us in stitches with his games and his cute looks he gave us.


He received some terrific and useful presents on his first Christmas. Above is a photo of him with his first baby toothbrush and toothpaste! Other favorites – classics, such as a Little Tikes piano, a set of blocks, and a Glow Worm, and new toys, like his animal train from BG.

He is such a joy to have as a son – everything for which I could have hoped, times a hundred. And he’s growing so fast!
