Babysitting Gabe

I started babysitting a sweet little boy named Gabriel when I was about 16 weeks pregnant.

I was still in the stage of my pregnancy where I got exhausted pretty easily. And Gabriel was in the stage of his life where he was working himself down from 2 naps a day to 1. These things did not seem to mix very well!! :)

So, most days I pulled out this Elmo seat to buy me 15 or 20 minutes of a stationary Gabriel. He could crawl around like crazy, so this was a life saver in the middle of the afternoon, even if it didn't last very long!

We sure did have a lot of fun - and even managed to get some things done! Like:

Playing with tupperware and exploring underneath the kitchen table.

Discovering the joys of

Folding laundry.

And sampling solid foods.

It was a fun 6 weeks or so, and great practice for what lies ahead in my near future!

Hope everyone has had a great week, and just a reminder, don't forget to check out the garage sale today or tomorrow!

Woah, that would be pretty exhausting chasing a crawler and being pregnant! Yay for the Elmo seat!
