Why Gabe the Babe & Co?
What originally started as blog for Kristie to educate others on Down syndrome has evolved into something more. We realized how important it is for Gabe, and other people, to have purposeful and meaningful work. Knowing that, we decided to create Gabe the Babe & Co. into a business that can grow with Gabe. Gabe is currently our top model and unofficially the official boss. As a military family, we are doing what we can to build Gabe the Babe & Co. as we move around the country. We are currently focusing on t-shirts, until we live somewhere permanently and can do even more to help others. Thank you for coming along for the ride. We are so excited about the growth Gabe the Babe and Co. has had and are looking forward to where this journey takes us.
Who We Are
Welcome to Gabe the Babe & Co! We are an Air Force family originally from Minnesota (Go Gophers!), but currently live in southern Alabama. Alex is a helicopter pilot and Kristie stays home with the kids. We had 4 babies in 4 years! Gabe is 5.5 and just started kindergarten, Lottie is 4, Maggie is almost 3 and Vince is 20 months.
Gabe was born in February 2014 and surprised us at birth when we found out he had Down syndrome. Kristie started a Facebook page for awareness, advocacy, and her own personal outlet. We always knew we wanted to do more to spread DS love and are finally putting those dreams in motion.
We're starting with t-shirt sales and hope to add more products soon. We love these designs because they are conversation starters and a great way to advocate. We have big plans for gtb&co. - we want to grow with Gabe and provide meaningful work for him as he gets older. We love dreaming up big ideas for the future!
We are so excited for our new venture and hope you love our products just as much as we've loved making them. #startaconversation

Package was delivered, but it not on my doorstep or mailbox? Now what?
