Gabriel Raptor Toddlerizes

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 and Gabriel best friends Best Friends They had lots of time together; she had enough vaction and maternity leave that I don't think she went to work once between conception and toddlerhood.

Gina had a little birthday party, inviting her Mom and Gabriel's father over for the Big Event.

Sally and Gina and Gabriel and Dawson Hurrah! I forget exactly why we had the party outside.

About to blow out the candles Second to last moments of babyhood "Are you sure about this, Mom?"

Up goes the baby Last moments of babyhood No turning back now.

Down comes the toddler First moments of toddlerhood Hey, overalls!

After a quick cuddle, Gina put Gabriel down and went inside for something. Dawson seemed a little uncomfortable about the whole "son" thing.

Uppies, Dada! "Uppies, Dada!" "Um, well, nice to meet you kid."

Sally was also a little uncertain at first...

Uppies, Gramma! "Uppies, Gramma!" "Uh, it's been a really long time."

... but she warmed to the little creature quickly.
