Michael gave me my birthday present early so I could wear it to Thanksgiving with my family. It was a shirt that says "Watermelon Smuggler" that he had especially made for me. It was definitely a conversation piece during Thanksgiving and of course my Buddha belly that was rubbed by almost every family member for good luck I suppose. One of my aunts kept telling me that she had never seen me pregnant before (even though she had seen me in August), I think she meant she's never seen me BIG and pregnant. Typically at Thanksgiving there are tons of pictures taken but mainly of my two baby cousins. However since I am carrying a baby within my womb I was added as someone of interest. By the end of the day I was tired of the paparazzi taking pictures of my belly and my shirt, but I loved the excitement everyone in my family has to meet Gabby. My aunt and uncle gave three boxes of baby girl clothes and other family members gave me clothes and baby items as birthday gifts. I was so excited that as soon as I got home I washed them, folded them, and organized them by size. I still have over 100 days to go, but I am sure my daughter will never ever wear the same outfit twice at the rate this is going! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
Gabby's party was everything she imagined it. The 22 girls enjoyed getting their hair and make up done. Then they all put on their head set microphone and then headed onto stage and enjoyed performing their favorite songs. The girls seemed to really like the party that Gabby planned. After cake and gifts the girls went back to the stage for an encore (or 5). A few of the moms at the party even attempted to escape from one of our escape rooms. Gabby seemed to love having the run of Escape Artist and showing off the rooms to all of her friends. It is amazing how many people love and care for Gabby. We are so grateful for all of the friends and fun that was had at her party!
