This was going to be our original baby announcement, but we were in sore need of family pictures, so we went with those! I love this little .gif though, because it captures their personalities and scrumptious ages so well. We shot this in one take, with no instructions but to tug on that balloon string and keep walking;) Max obliged with a toothbursh in his mouth.
Happy St. Valentine’s Day from our family to yours!
P.S. A few conversations we have had lately about the baby:
Gabriel: How does the baby get food in there?
Me: Well, whenever mommy eats, the baby gets some of the food through a tube in my stomach.
Gabriel: And when the baby comes out, will it eat milk from the bottles on your stomach like Max did?
Veronica: When am I gonna have a baby in my belly like you mama?
Me and Gabe swallow our laughs: Not until you are at least 25.
Max: (Continues to bottle feed everything with eyes we have in the house.)
Gabriel: So if you keep eating, your belly will grow and grow mom?
Gabriel: Well you better keep eating so that baby can come out!
Me: Don’t worry son, I am really good at eating.
Veronica: Mama you are gonna have lots of babies!
Me: (Wipe sweaty brow) What?! I am only having one baby honey.
Veronica: No, you are having a girl baby for me, and more babies for Gabriel and Max.
Me: Mmmkay. One at a time.
