Sick Days

Last night Gabby began getting even sicker than she had been and she was kind enough to pass the germs to Mommy.  About an hour after we laid her down she woke up crying hysterically.  Since I wasn't feeling well either she and I laid in bed and watched "Peppa Pig" (per her request) while Daddy was kind enough to make her milk, go the garage search for the humidifier, clean it, fill it, fix it because it wasn't working and set it up in her room.  We watched Peppa for about an hour and then I put her back in bed because Michael and I were falling asleep but Gabby was not.  When I laid her down she told me "night night, bye!" and blew me a kiss. 

About 3:30 in the morning she woke up again (I was already awake feeling terrible so I was anticipating this occurrence) because her pain medicine wore off.  I went and got her, laid her in our bed, gave her medicine and decided to let her stay in our bed until she fell back to sleep, which usually takes until the pain reliever kicks in.  Basically the entire time she was in our bed she left me alone, but she would sit up and kiss Michael every few minutes. It was precious, but I am sure didn't help Michael with waking up the next morning.  Luckily once her medicine started to work I could just lay her in her crib and she happily went back to sleep.  I have to say Gabby handled the flu (that she so generously shared with Michael, Grandma, and me) better than the adults did! I am so glad she is finally back to being her sweet cheery self again.

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…
