Today was the day that Gabe learned how to ride his bike on two wheels! It only took two tries and he had it down. I was so proud of him. I could totally tell he was a little scared, but the promise of a lollipop and a new pair of kicks seemed to do the trick. :) Can't wait to hit the Pinellas Trail with him now that he can keep up!! Good job Gabe!

Gabriel is such an awesome helper in the kitchen. I particularly love baking and cooking with him when Zoe is napping because they are in the stage (Um, it's a stage right??) where they fight over EVERYTHING! It is our special time together.
We made vegetarian lasagna the other day. He loves peeling onions and chopping veggies (YES, I let him use sharp knives! Don't judge me!) and he eats more of his dinner if he has a role in preparing it.
Here's our precious conversation:
Me: "Gabe, someday when you are older you will be the most fantastic chef and will make your wife really yummy meals. She'll be so lucky."
Gabe: "Well, when you are old and your hair is white I'll cook for you too Mom. I'll take care of you and Dad."
Me: "I'd love that Gabe. How about when I'm so old and crazy that I wander the streets in my bathrobe. You will come get me and bring me home?"
