Uh oh

I have been SO lax about posting here; in my defense, it HAS been a busy week or so. Gabriel's birthday was wonderful; always so nice to be surrounded by family and friends. Tomorrow Aunt Buzzy (My sister Tori) comes to visit for four days and oh my goodness are the kiddos excited. Even Bits is ready for her to be here, a hundred times a day, she asks me "Buzzy train? Buzzy train now?" They can't wait to see her and I would assume the feeling is mutual ;)

We see Gabe's neurosurgeon FINALLY on Tuesday-we'e been rescheduled three times now! and after waiting FOUR months for insurance approval, Gabe will get his new orthodics to keep his ankles straight! Four months, jeez oh pete.

On to the pics, which is what you REALLY want :)

Dear Gabriel

In a few short hours, you are going to wake up and be five. FIVE. My goodness, how the years have flown. It's seems like only yesterday I was telling daddy we were going to have you. After a tumultuous nine months of carrying you, you were delivered and whisked away to be fixed up. Sixteen days after you arrived, you came home and thus began the adventure in parenting you ;)
You've always had your own personality and what an amazing personality it is too. You are always quick to giggle, slow to anger, happy to give a hug or a kind word to someone in need, and even tolerate the pain in the butt sister you have. You're such a big boy, but in other ways, you are still momma's little baby. At night when you are asleep, I sometimes creep into your room to check on you. You are always splayed all over the bed with a sheet wrapped around you, the blanket half over your head, and pillows all over...but you always have your puppy Sam under one arm.
You bring such joy to our lives; ALL of our lives, from aunts and uncles, grandmas and grandpas, godparents, cousins, and friends. We're all so lucky to have you in our lives.
Happy birthday little man, momma loves you

A big week ahead of us

We have a very VERY busy week ahead of us. Gabriel is going to have his mri's read Tuesday, as well as x rays on his spine and hips after a visit with his orthopaedic doctor. THEN on Wednesday he has an occupational therapy visit, Thursday he has his first cast removed and his new one put on, and Friday we are getting our first ever (!!) family portraits done, along with birthday pictures of the kiddos. *whew* Tomorrow the only thing on our agenda is getting a haircut and making some valentine's day cards, thank goodness :)
Please keep Gabe in your thoughts and prayers, as this is going to be a very tiring week for him (all of us, really, but especially him)
Have a great week everyone!
