Four Momths

Dear Bea and Gabe,

You both just get cuter all the time and so much fun. Every noise and bit of cuteness I make note of in my head. I want to remember to tell you about it but alas having you both means that I get very little sleep and I am very forgetful.

Both of you are reaching out to touch things. Bea, you like the octopus and Gabe you are partial to the stuff animals, especially Douglas, your camel. Both of you now are responding to our faces, much to your dads delight. Bea you will smile all day if we smile at you, sticking your tongue out if we do it and Gabe you like to do eyebrows up and down with daddy.

This was a busy month for the family. We did a week long trip to Ottawa and stayed with Grandma and Grandpa. We packed the two of you into the Pack n Play every night and you both slept better then you ever have at home……..we are still trying to figure out why this is. Maybe you just got spoiled by all the attention and were exhausted by the end of the day. You both traveled well and slept most of the time but would get frustrated if the trip was taking too long. In Ottawa we went to your cousin Krissy’s baby shower to welcome baby Logan to the world. He is a little guy too born at 33 weeks. You guys stole the show when we showed up, stealing all the attention away from Krissy and Logan. We also got a great picture of you with your great Granny Marion. You two are the new ‘twins’ in the family.

This month was also the end of Gabe’s on going medical troubles. Dad and I were looking forward to the reversal since you got healthy and were excited that it would soon be all over but I don’t think either of us realized how big the last few months have been. It is exactly this time last year that we started the IVF process and were only dreaming of you guys. This past year has been a rollercoaster of happiness, fear and excitement and as soon as your surgery was over Gabe I cried for an hour. Just the relief that finally I have my healthy babies and can enjoy being a mommy instead of all the fears of parenting. We are having a party this weekend to celebrate.
