Molly, Meet Gabby

Gabby took her second trip to Dallas last weekend.  We were very excited about this special trip because it would be the first time Gabby met her cousins and Aunt Danielle from Japan.  Once we arrived we walked in the house and were greeted by 3 squealing little girls and one adorable baby girl, Molly.  As I go to ooh and ahh over the little one and receive hugs from all of my other sweet nieces, to our astonishment, Uncle Mark appeared out of no where!  Uncle Mark was supposed to be in Iraq, but when he arrived they requested he return home.  He took two weeks of leave and flew half way across the world to visit his family.  What a great surprise!  I was holding Gabby and began introducing her to Molly.  Instantly they held hands! It was adorable, I only wish I could have taken a picture of them holding hands.  Such little babies reaching out to each other, it shows how some people naturally "connect" to one another. The girls had a wonderful weekend together.  Since Gabby and Molly were born only 6 days apart they ate at about the same time, napped the same amount, and played on the floor cooing at each other with three other little onlookers taking turns playing mama. It was adorable seeing all of the girls together and I believe it's the best visit we've ever had with the entire family together.

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 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.

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…
