The Guessing Game

People have started to guess when they think Gabby will be born. I find this very amusing and a great way to pass the time. Apparently so does Michael, he informed me that we should start a pool of bets at both of our works and see who guesses Gabby's birthday correctly. Although I find this idea amusing, I don't plan on actually doing it; however, who knows if Michael will?!

So far I have been given these guesses:
Michael (Daddy): March 17th (which is St. Patrick's Day)
My Mom (Nana): March 12th (exactly 2 weeks early)
My Dad (Papa): March 13th or 14th
Mike's Mom (Grandma): March 24th
Great Aunt Lisa: March 12th
Amy (A good friend): March 11th or 12th
Sharon (Aunt Sharon): March 26th (she thinks Gabby will be punctual)
Lacey (Aunt Lacey): Says any day before the due date (because she will be out of town ON the due date!)
Jenny (Mike's cousin: March 17th)

My grandma stated at the very latest I will have her March 30th because it's a full moon. A preacher at a daycare I go to told me that if my baby is born on the 30th he will give me a month worth the free diapers because that is his birthday (although free diapers are great I will forgo them to have this little girl sooner!)

Me (Mommy): I refuse to take a guess because I was so POSITIVE that she was a boy! I don't want to make a guess and then become highly disappointed that I am wrong; although secretly I have thought the 17th since I got pregnant (which means if you take a guess any date but that one will probably be more likely).

Becoming a Marlin

One evening while eating dinner at Texas Roadhouse (our usual on Friday nights so we can see Daddy for an hour while he’s working) Gabby saw Olympic swimmers on the television and said I want to do that.  Michael and I have been wanting Gabby to become less fearful of the water and a stronger swimmer so we immediately agreed that becoming a swimmer was a great idea.  Two weeks later I had all of the information needed and we were signed up for the neighborhood swim team.  Little did I know how intense summer swim team would be!
To be allowed on the team you must be capable of swimming across the entire 25 meter pool, there is no time limit and you are allowed to hold on to the rope as much as you need.  Gabby made it across the pool in about 2 minutes, 20 seconds with a lot of encouragement from the coaches and a lot of holding onto the ropes and taking breaks.  I must add that the evaluation was in April and it was cold, but she never even mentioned the temperature of the water the…

Happy Father's Day!

Father's Day was a relaxing day.  Michael has been working extremely hard building things at the escape room.  We decided to spend the day with his best friend.  It was a fun and relaxing day enjoying the kids and cooking burgers.  I think these pictures depict our day:

I think Gabby knows that she is so blessed to have such a loving, caring, involved fun Daddy.  I know that I am lucky to have such an amazing partner sharing this crazy life of parenting and making memories.  We love you Michael and we both feel so blessed for the ways you choose to so your love.  You make our lives amazing.  Love you.

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…
