Playing Catch-Up

Since we started the blog a little late, I'd like to backtrack and mention some very important visits we had. Most of you know that we just moved back to Texas from London, so we had to be sure and introduce everyone to our little London-born BritBaby, hence the name of the blog.

One of his most important visits was with his Great-Grandmother, Irene Gasaway (Angie's Grandma). He even took a nap while he was supposed to be meeting relatives at the Gasaway Reunion!

Gabriel and I also took a little trip to the best little town in the world: College Station, home of the Aggies!!! Whoop! We went to visit Dewayne and Cookie Mattheson, my wonderful adopted parents who made my Senior Boots. Without their kindness, I would have never made it through my senior year in the Corps.

Gabriel has also gotten to know his third cousin (or first cousin twice removed), Forrest and my CRANA cousin, Rachel, who was visiting from El Paso. We had a few nice visits, and the boys LOVED our trip to the swimming pool!

We also had a visit from our very special neighbor, Miss Grace. She loved our big boy, and we compared notes as her grand-daughter is only a month older in age. She's not feeling well, so we are keeping her in our thoughts and prayers as she heals.

Another group of special visitors came by: more cousins!!! Gabriel's first cousins once removed and our Uncle Sammy came by to say hi to our little guy. Uncle Sammy just beat cancer, and although he now has dark, wavy hair, he's really getting back to normal. Kacie and Kelleigh got to hold Gabriel a little bit (even though he's almost as big as they are) and I'm sure they'll have fun growing up together!

And of course he's had several visits from his Gramma and Pops (my mom and step-dad), who totally dote on Gabriel!

He's had a few more visits, but we have to wait on the film to be developed -- if you're one of them, keep checking the blog and I'll update it as soon as we can!!!
