28 years ago today, we were blessed with our second son...Gabrial! What a day it was too. He was big, no, he was huge...9 lbs. 9 1/2 oz. and he was 23 1/2 inches long. We lived about an hour and a half from the hospital and we weren't there very long before he was born. I felt great and we left not too long after so we could get back home to Joshua. I wanted both my baby boys together and I knew Joshua was anxious to see his new baby brother.
Joshua was very proud of his little brother. He ALWAYS wanted to hold him. Seeing as Joshua was only 2 1/2, the couch was about the only place I'd let him hold Gabe. Joshua would try to share his toys...all his tonka trucks especially, with Gabe.
Joshua was a guy who loved his naps...Gabe didn't like naps. He always wanted to be awake. Eventually, poor Joshua gave up his naps cause his baby brother was TOO LOUD and no one could sleep! What a happy family we were...and still are. It would only be another 2 1/2 years before these two boys would get their baby sister, Lindsey.
Happy Birthday to you, Gabe!
