6 Months ago today the best little thing imaginable came. Gabey took his sweet time, but after 22 hours of the absolute hardest work ever he was ours. I am freaking out that just 9 more of these little time-spans will have him kindergarten age. For real, if you want time to fly have a baby -- or better yet, have the most beautiful funny and happy baby. To celebrate the best 6 months of my life, here are a few of my biggest memories:

So yesterday I called the MD to make an appointment. I spoke with the person who schedules the procedure that I needed and who (by the way) was unncessarily impossible to reach. I finally got her on the phone after leaving oh about infinity messages without getting a call-back (despite her message that said she'd call back within 24 hours -- maybe she meant 24 days). You'd think after hearing and ignoring my messages for the the last week my name might kind of ring a bell. You'd think wrong.

Our friend, Andres, is a fantastic photographer (who actually sells pictures for unbelievable amounts of money) and he offered to take pictures of the most beautiful baby available.

So, here it is report card time (and yes I do have to write those on maternity leave) and the hard drive in my laptop died. Like, it put a blue screen up and shut off and didn't even say goodbye.

One phrase that I've heard over and over since the day I told people I was pregnant was "oh just wait until...". I understand that people who have been through a certain experience have broad memories of certain times of their experience, but why can't I just enjoy the point that I am at in my own experience.
FOR EXAMPLE when I started to feel little kicks, I right away started hearing "wait until you start getting kicked in the ribs and it bruises them" -- okay, take my new and kind of nice experience and fast forward me to when I'm going to dread it. I found that I kept fast forwarding my pregnancy to the end in my mind instead of focusing on and enjoying what was happening in that moment. Then suddenly my pregnancy was over and I hated that I spent so much time waiting for ________ to happen.
So, the point of this blog is: even if you've raised 16 kids and you're mom/dad/caregiver of the year, do not you dare react to one of my baby observations with "just wait until...". I'm determined to enjoy this day by day and I don't wanna fast forward to when he's ______. It'll happen quick enough as it is.
And now the gratutitous picture of Gabe the magnificent:

And this would be a gratutious baby picture featuring the duck slippers from Cheyney since she already had to hear the above story once. Thank goodness for friends like Cheyney who knew duck slippers were just what everyone needed when she got them for Gabe.
