Gil’s 3-month photo shoot


The days are whizzing by and our little boy is growing up.  Three-and-a-half months already!  I haven’t done a photo shoot with Gil since he was two weeks old and figured it was time to get him gussied up and pull out the big camera.

I seriously think I am falling more in love with Gil every day.  We had a rough start, but over the last month he really has become a very different baby.  His sleep schedule is much more regular and his smiles, coos, and even little chuckles are becoming a part of everyday life.  He is content to hang out by himself for long periods of time while listening to me work in the kitchen or while lying on the rug while Lena and I play.

Speaking of Lena, he loves her.  I get such a kick out of seeing him break into a grin when he sees her!  He tolerates her so well, too.  Yesterday she wanted to take off all his clothes, roll him over on a blanket for tummy time, and put cookie cutters on his arms like bracelets (“Mama, look!  Gil sooo pretty!”).  I think he actually enjoyed all of it; he seems curious to see what she’ll come up with next.  And trust me, there’s no end to her ideas.


^ With a daddy who is a veterinarian, of course Gil has puppies on his corduroys!





I really need to print out some new pictures for Elliott to have in his office… because I haven’t done that since I was pregnant with Lena.  (?!?!)   One of these photos will probably be a part of that update.  Which photo is your favorite?

    Yes, that last big one is adorable! I love the one of the two of you, too! The dimples you both have are ‘dimply darling’.

      Haha, I know you love his dimples! Grammie did too when she was here. :)

        I too am a fan of the dimples! An excellent Palmer trait to pass on :)

        I can’t wait to meet him!

    So sweet. My Hannah and Wil are almost 3 years apart and Wil adored Hannah! When he was 2 and she was 5 she wanted a little sewing kit for Christmas-pre punched felt that you “sewed” together and it made a petal shaped purse. When someone asked Wil what he wanted he said a weed whacker (like Daddy) and a petal purse! So sweet. They are still good friends. Blessings on your family!

      Aww, I love this story! I was close in age to my brother as well and have fond memories of our adventures and toy-sharing years ago. It’s so fun to watch my own children admire and love each other now!
