Now we'll look at little Gabriel Raptor's End of Babyhood Birthday. Gabriel's the only child of single Romance Mom Gina, and his birthday is sort of the other end of the universe from the bustling Family warmth of the Danvers Twins (here in Neighborhood One we're all about Diversity).
He and his Mom greatly enjoyed his babyhood.
Gina had a little birthday party, inviting her Mom and Gabriel's father over for the Big Event.
After a quick cuddle, Gina put Gabriel down and went inside for something. Dawson seemed a little uncomfortable about the whole "son" thing.
Sally was also a little uncertain at first...
... but she warmed to the little creature quickly.
Gina and Dawson were inside, working on raising the party score.
Sally could tell Gabriel was tired, so she took him inside and tucked him in.
Back in the living room, Gina and Dawson were still playing.
It was a good party overall, although Gina had to hit the coffee machine just to stay awake to the end.
All too soon, Gabriel was up and ready to start his first day of toddlerism (toddlarity?).
And here are mother and son, immersed in the quotidian.
Will Gina finally go back to work, and leave Gabriel to the dreaded nannies? Or will she quit her job for awhile? (She can afford it.) Or move Dawson in? Or who knows what? Tune in later on for millions more unnecessary pictures!
