Our thoughtful 35 lb cutie, Gideon Gunner turned 2 years old on 02/19/18. He is greater than the 99 percentile for height and weight. GG is so smart and has a large vocabulary! He often speaks in 4-5 word sentences. It helps that he has 5 private tutors working with him all day long. He will not let anybody treat him differently than a quintuplet. The quints have made him an honorary member. They still remind him he’s the rookie by calling him, “Baby”. He refers to himself as, “Gibby”. He is daytime potty trained and is liking his new toddler bed. If there is mischief happening in the house, you need not worry. He will be involved without a doubt!
If he does not get his way and is mad, you’ll know it. He winds up first by tilting his head and the lower lip comes out. At this point he will usually roll his eyes and sometimes his entire head at you. If he’s really mad, he will throw himself on the ground into full tantrum mode. He loves to say the word, “NO!”. For yes, he gives the cutest little head node.
A quick look in the wishing well. These kids are always full of curiosity for our beautiful world. Briella had a tantrum to wear Elias’ Star War panties. I’m glad this sweet memory was captured.
Cake and trucks! Every little boy’s dream.
Warning: If you are on a diet, proceed with caution as you scroll!
After a bit, he wanted to share…
Somehow, Conner did not think the cake looked appetizing. Even though, it had been Quint and Gideon 12-hand tested.
I breastfeed our quintuplets for a year. I breastfed our oldest son for a year. I am still excited to be on a breastfeeding journey with Gideon. It has been a hard but very rewarding experience. I have been blessed to capture it this time.

This year, I wanted a 2 year old breastfeeding picture with him in a milk bath with fruit loops. Gideon thought it was a terrible idea. He just wanted to use the bucket like a giant cereal bowl. We just went with it this time. Well played, Sir.
