18 Months Later…Hard to Believe!

Yesterday, August 26th, Gershom turned 1 1/2 years old! Hard to believe!  This scene in the video below seems like just the other day.                           Hard to believe how nervous I was about becoming a father.

Hard to believe how fun our son is to be around.  I’m more amazed at how much Gershom loves being around and playing with his daddy.  I hope this will always last!                                                             

This was at about 8 months of age when I walked into the room and I noticed our son had stood up on his own for the first time.  It wasn’t until one week after his 1st birthday that he walked for the first time.

We got this nice hand and foot molding kit for framing from Toys R Us in Markaz Al Baja Mall.

I love that Gershom loves books!  I hope this continues throughout his lifetime…

I remember coming into the living room and seeing our baby after he emptied the entire tissue box with this guilty look on his face, ha!ha!  Our baby is an unpredictable one.  We never know what he’s going to do next.  He really keeps us on our toes.

Gershom has always loved icecream cones (without the icecream!) and it’s one of the tricks up our sleeves to calm him down when he throws a tantrum (every now and then…) I love this picture of Gershom as he’s wearing a “Canadian lumberjack shirt” sent to him from his nanny in Canada!

Gershom with his aunt Maritess at City Centre Qurum.  Our baby loves anything to do with cars, gadgets, dogs, music and babies.

It’s hard to describe how much joy my son has brought to our lives.  Words cannot describe the sense of gratitude I feel to God whenever  I hear my son call “Dadda” or “Daddy”.  It seems like he’s learning and doing something new every day and it’s incredible to watch him as he progresses.  I can’t wait to see what our son is going to do next, ha!ha!
