Babies are Unpredictable!

Mike and I learned a fun lesson about children. They are unpredictable! On Saturday Mike and I had an appointment to have a 3-D ultrasound, just for the fun of seeing her one more time before she is born. My grandma and two aunts drove in from Louisiana for this 15 minute event.

When we got to the place that conducts the ultrasounds we were all excited. Everyone settled in and got comfortable while the lady started in a 2-D ultrasound trying to figure out where Gabby was and what the best point of view would be. We quickly figured out that our little girl was being camera shy. She had both of her knees covering her face and her arms on the side of her ears. She was hardly letting us have a peek of any part of her face! The ultrasound technician tried pushing on my stomach hoping to agitated her and move her, but she refused. Then we tried toe touches, holding my breath, leaning over....basically anything the tech could think of but it was no use. We only accomplished having Gabby hide her face even deeper in the placenta. The good news is we are beyond a doubt positive she is a girl and I have the pictures to prove it!! I asked Michael what we should do with those pictures? Do you put such graphic pictures in her baby book and then one day when trying to embarrass her in front of her new boyfriend show off her baby book and whoops! Now the new boyfriend has seen far more of her than you ever hoped?!?

For now we are just being patient. We get to go back this Friday and try again to get a peek of my baby girl's face. I feel terrible that my grandma and aunts drove in for nothing. Otherwise though, the whole experience was pretty funny! However, I am now wondering if I should have taken my doctor's advice and put the money we spent on this into a college fund for her? I am surprisingly patient with being pregnant and the little bumps in the road. If you know me you know I am a person who is a true Sagittarius. Usually when I want something I want it to happen at that very moment. At this point I am happy to get to go back and see what Gabby likes to do on a Friday and I like her in the safety of my womb. So at this point I am in no hurry for her to face the real world!

Rock Star Party

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!  

Happy Birthday Grandma!!

Today is Gabby's Grandma's birthday! We were very lucky that we saw Grandma close to her birthday so we could celebrate together.  We all really enjoyed seeing Grandma and Grandpa, especially Gabby.  It took her about 5 minutes to warm up to them, but then it was hugs, kisses, and showing off for the two and a half days they stayed with us.  We celebrated Grandma's birthday with a quiet dinner and a birthday cake; although it was Grandma's birthday cake, I think Gabby thoroughly enjoyed it more than even the birthday girl! Grandma graciously gave Gabby the large white chocolate square with her birthday greeting written on it.  Gabby took large bites into it and LOVED it!

The day they were leaving Gabby and I took Grandma to Chik-Fil-A (to see Gabby in her element) for lunch.  While we all ate our chicken nuggets Gabby grabbed Mommy's drink and took big gulps, because she is too big for a juice box.  Then, once she was bored with her lunch she began waving at each…

Deep In the Heart of Texas!

Gabby's dance recital theme this year was "Texas."  Gabby's tap and jazz class chose "Deep In the Heart of Texas!"  Gabby worked extremely hard to learn her dance over the past two months and I must say she did amazing! I loved watching her put on a big smile and shake her hips in her tutu while pumping her heart in the dance.  She did very well and seemed so confident while performing on stage (although that wasn't truly the case).

Yesterday at the dress rehearsal Gabby heard people laughing (because her dance is so stinking adorable) and Gabby was very upset that people were laughing at her.  I calmed her down after ensuring her everyone loved their dance and were just being interactive because they were enjoying singing along \the song and clapping when while singing.  They ran through their dance twice on stage and did amazing the second time, but I think the fact that they ran through their dance twice made Gabby feel like they weren't doing i…
