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.

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…
