Oh What Fun, Gabby is ONE!!!!

I can't believe that my little girl turns one today.  It feels like just yesterday that I met her for the first time.  The joy that comes with having this little angel, and by angel I mean gift from heaven, grows more and more everyday.  I tell Michael all of the time that I cannot believe how much more I love her every day and he feels the same way. Our love grows for her as fast as she grows! 

We love you baby Gabby! You are the most amazing person in the entire world.  Happy First Birthday!


Mommy and Daddy

Milestones Gabby has met by her first birthday:
  • Walking
  • Running
  • Playing "pat-a-cake" and "itsy bitsy spider" and "singing" along by clicking her tongue
  • Says: "dada, mama, uh-oh, cat, hi, cat, pretty, yeah, oh wow" and I am sure more that I am forgetting.
  • Calling the cat and dog by clicking her tongue and putting her hand out (cutest thing ever!)
  • Turning the pages and pointing to pictures in her books
  • Becoming a 'limp noodle' to escape when being held
  • Climbing up the stairs and on anything else she can get her little legs on
  • Can make her little push car go
  • Sleeps through the night (as of two days ago, I may be speaking too soon)
  • Eat only people food
  • Attempts to use a spoon
  • Throwing a ball
She loves:
  • Taking things apart to see how they work
  • Knocking down blocks
  • Playing/being outside
  • Saying "hi" to people
  • Playing with Daddy
  • Anything that gives her a thrill such as: spinning, haning upside down, swinging, sliding, being thrown in the air, being tickled
  • Animals (especially Marley and Ranger)
  • Taking things out of bags or drawers
  • Hugs and kisses
  • Balls

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…
