According to a recent analysis of gap intelligence, there seems to be “something in the water” at the company. During the last 15 months, there have been 6 new additions born into the gap family. Babies always seem to bring so much joy to people, and we have certainly felt that here at gap. Every time one of the babies comes through, you can’t help but smile.

Favorite Toy: Any type of ball

Anything else you’d like to share: Holden is trying to learn not to throw EVERYTHING (balls only). He also likes feeding his dogs from his high chair, much to my displeasure. No wonder they like him so much!
Those 6 sound like some pretty cool babies right?! I know that for me, the past 15 months of being a parent has been the most amazing, challenging job I have ever had, and I can’t imagine my life without Holden. It’s been so fun to see all the other babies that are being born into the gap family. (Maybe the next category we track should be diapers?!)
However, it appears like we are going to be in a baby drought for a bit, as it still remains to be seen who will be the next baby gapper. I think we should start placing bets! :)
