Gabby has a new obsession and Michael keep trying to help me feel better about it, but it still makes me worry I am not giving her everything she needs. She LOVES watching "shows" as she calls them. She would watch television all day if we allowed her to. Not just any shows she has favorites (Barney, Peppa Pig, Dinosaur Train, Elmo), but her all time favorite at the moment is Beauty and the Beast also know as "Beast!" Her first words to me yesterday when she woke up were, "Beast, show show!" Not good morning or hi but Beast! It's adorable to watch her watch the show she dances and tries to sing the songs, but her attentions span isn't long enough for the entire movie so Michael and I see the beginning and the very end all of the time, but never the middle. I am hoping that she will come away with a few good concepts from watching this movie over and over: reading books is awesome and makes you smart and pretty according to the movie, don't judge a book by it's cover (no pun intended), and be a good person at heart and your life will be everything you want it to be.
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!
