I am happy to report, that last night Gabe slept all through the night. After about 2 weeks of him waking up, I propped up the top part of his mattress. Apparently it worked!
Looking forward to some more great nights of sleep. Oh, and he has started to eat! Liquid (with added milkies) yams and carrots. We are moving forward with our 8 1/2 month old little guy! ;)
