And I do have some new ones of Gabe and Monty. I'll have to put them up later tonight! :)

Oh good- can't wait to see Mr. Monty with his baby! I'm assuming all is well between the 4 of you?

Oops.. had a bit of a long night with the little guy last night, and forgot to upload the Gabe/Monty pics.. need to remember tonight. But to make up for my forgetfulness, here is one from yesterday morning just after he woke up.

And Cindy- all is AWESOME with the 4 of us. Monty is just in love with Gabe now, and just the other day, Gabe turned, very inquisitively looked at Monty, and when Monty turned to look at him, Gabe grinned from ear to ear (wish I had my camera at THAT moment!)

So here is yesterday morning:

That's a beautiful photograph. And it looks like you swaddle him? I heard it works wonders for babies.

Sounds like Gabe's a dog-lover from birth! I'm so happy that the kingdom is at peace.

Thanks Sooz. :) Yes, we do swaddle him while he sleeps, and it does work wonders. I guess there is a reason women have wrapped their babies for thousands of years ;).

We actually discovered a book called "Happiest Baby on the Block." Since Gabe was a bit colicy, we were desperate for a good way to calm him. The author of HBOTB proposes a way of combining swaddling, shushing, swinging and having the baby on their side, which simulates the womb, and triggers a calming reflex (a reflex to calm the fetus in the womb so that it wouldn't tangle itself in the cord, etc..). I kid you not, it is like magic- Gabe would go from inconsolable wailing to completely chilled out within seconds.

Most definitely he is! :) And the kingdom is definitely at peace.. well with the exception of Monty going bonkers every time we get the stroller out (that is his new walk time cue!)
