Good Eater

This afternoon I took Gabe (Gramma was home with Carson) to the hospital for the New Mom's Group they have every week. You can meet other moms, and have baby weighed and measured. 2 weeks ago, Gabe weighed in at 9.2 lbs and measured 21 inches long. Today he weighed in at 10.8 8 lbs. and 22 1/2 inches. At this age with Carson, he weighed 10.2 lbs. and was 21 inches long. Carson had plenty of rolls and cute baby fat, and I am THINKING that Gabe will too. He is already growing into 3-6 month things cause he is so long. The 0-3 or 3 month things are a little on the short size. Hard to believe we have had to move up to the next size already.

We have been getting out for walks these last couple of days. This warm weather is so nice!

Last night we went to Lithia Park and had a pizza picnic. Our 1st family of 4 picnic. Carson ran and ran and ran some more. We had yummy tasting food and some picture time. To be posted later on at some point.
These couple of pictures are Carson's doing. He would set the camera to the timer (pushing the button) and then get in front of it for the picture. Here are a couple he took...

Waving to the motorcycles.

This morning we planted lettuce and green onions. Getting close to being done with our veggie planting (yesterday I planted an artichoke plant - looking forward to seeing how everything turns out). After that Carson and I tried to go on a bike ride, but the trailer had a flat tire. I pumped it up and about 10 minutes into the ride it was flat again. Pumped it up again and came home. Needless to say, we did not make it to our destination, which is fine. We have all spring and summer to ride around lots.
