Let’s be clear, Gabby’s birthday celebration wasn't a day event like the typical person, oh no! It was a birthday month and we made the most of it all. Her birthday month celebration began at Vic and Anthony’s (a place where only princesses celebrate) and then Papasito’s celebrated her birthday early when she informed the waitress that her birthday was March 17th. We also celebrated on her actual birthday, the day before her party, her birthday party, at dinner after her party. When we went to Texas Roadhouse with Grandma and Grandpa. Gabby informed them that it was almost her birthday party. Naturally, they sang to Gabby (she grinned from ear to ear) and they also sat her on a saddle and did a good southern ‘yee haw’ in celebration. She got a huge kick out of this.

Finally, our last celebration was the night of her birthday party when they gave her ice cream and sang Happy Birthday to her in their own special way. Next, a duet of guitarist came over, sang happy birthday to Gabby, and then preceded to sing (in Spanish) and play the “chicken song” you always hear at weddings. We cracked up laughing and dancing (at our seats) trying to encourage Gabby to join in. She never actually danced, but loved every minute of the attention 100% on her in such and unexpected spontaneous way. She kept elbowing Daddy while they sang and we of course giggled. Once the music ended we asked her if she was elbowing Daddy because she was embarrassed by his dance moves and she matter-of-factly informed us that they were singing to her so he shouldn’t have been dancing. It has been very fun celebrating a month of the greatest blessing in our lives. I can’t wait for next year….actually I can. Slow down Gabby. Continue to stop and smell the roses and loving to spend all of your time with me. I love being stuck together like glue. Mommy and Daddy love you!
