This is Gabriel! He is our firstborn and is 3 months old when this picture was taken. My sister immediately dubbed him "Winston Churchill" when she saw this as I related how the usually smiley, agreeable, laid back baby REFUSED to find anything amusing at his first photo shoot! We finally settled on this one of him pretending not to see the funny lady sneezing the stuffed animal off of her head for his entertainment. The real point of my post is to let you know Gabriel has a birthday coming up! He is going to be 12 on February 5th. Gabriel LIVES to get mail, and I am asking his friends to send cards if you think of it. It would totally make his day! Me, on the other hand...I'm not sure I will get out of bed...I can't believe I have a child that will be 12!! He is almost a teenager and will be moving away soon...okay, now I have to stop before the tears start in!
Okay, and one more thing...I don't know if you read my comments, BUT, you should! I have a new (celebrity) follower. Author Jean Stockdale left me a comment on my last post! How she ever found my blog, why she bothered to read it, what made her decide to become a follower...only God knows! What a boost to my spirits that was! I know God lead her to me...why? Maybe because I am an author of sorts wanna-be. Maybe because I need an in to a publisher. Maybe because she needed a laugh and to admire some "darling" kids (hey, her words, not mine!!). Who cares, SHE FOLLOWS MY BLOG!!! (Hi Jean, how is your Friday going??)
