Yesterday Gabe turned 2 months old. He also had his 2 month doctor appointment and first round of vaccinations (and yesterday evening, his very first fever). Kamel sent me this photo while I was at work:

So I knew that even though babies hate shots, this baby was going to be ok.
It has been an amazing month with Gabe. I have seen him slowly emerge for newborn-dom and become a happy, smiley, flirty little boy. He chirps and sqwacks at us, tells us his stories, rages and demands to be taken here and there, to be fed and changed. He is now 12 lbs and 2 oz/24.5 inches long. He is totally average for weight and in the 96% for baby height. I love stats like that. They are fascinating. Also, he makes me really really happy.
Here are some of my favorite photos from the last month (from the time he turned 1 month until now):
And finally! Mr. 2 months exactly. Gabe the Babe:
