Granny's Grandkids

Drumroll, please......and if you could see me right now, you would see

me smiling.... because the name on my paper is...... Gabriel Robert Coleman

Age 2 years and 9 1/2 months

I was in Charlotte when Gabe was born. I was so thankful to be there! I got to hold him the same day he was born! And what a cute baby! Now he is a adorable little boy!

Some things I like about Gabe:

He loves to play with balls, cars, and trains and all those things that boys like!

Gabe is an artist! He really is, not just my imagination, even if I am his Granny. Look at the photo above; he was making a house of Play-Doh. And you can see that it a house. He also loves to draw. He draws trains and train tracks , especially engines. The first time I saw his work was he was 18 months old. He has talent!

I love Gabe's smile! He smiles a lot, sometimes it is a big smile, laughing out loud. But my favorite smile is when he smiles while he is doing good things for others, or when someone praises him. I took that photo above, and I was telling how much I liked his Play-Doh house. It's a small smile, but I love it! He loves to be silly and his laugh is so natural.

He likes to play. And he plays by himself. I don't know why I like it, but I do. He would be happy to be home, playing with his toys all day, every day! I think that he is secure being him! And that's a really good thing to have.

My favorite memory of Gabe:

I was at the airport in Charlotte. I was at the top of the escalator and then I saw Katie, Colin and Gabe's shoes. That was the only things I saw, but I knew it was them. Then Gabe's little feet were running toward me! He was so little and he was so cute running. The last time I saw him he was crawling....they grow so fast! Then I realized that he remembered me! And he was happy to see me and he gave me a kiss (which was rare)!

I love you Gabe!!!! I miss you and I can't wait to see you again!

Well, Katie I think if he is secure, you are the reason...Your a GREAT Mom! Funny kid!

This morning I edited the blog....I finished it last night...or should I say early morning? I was trying to change the spacing. Now I have more spaces between the next paragraph! I'll get it right someday! And I also found some missing words, etc...

I think you did a great job Linda. Gabe sounds like a great kid. And he is a cutie. I will always remember him when I see trains.
