This is What 4 Looks Like

So this is what 4 looks like.  At 4 Gabby has the following skills:
  • Writing and identifying some letters
  • Telling jokes
  • Understanding when others are joking with her
  • Using her imagination
  • Memorizing entire movies and quoting them
  • Having a huge vocabulary including the words: hilarious, ridiculous, and compensate
  • Ride her bicycle with training wheels
  • Play hopscotch
  • Balance on one foot
  • Hop on one foot
  • Knows some letters
  • Draw monsters, people, sun, sky, grass, circles, squares, a cat, and a lot more
  • Play with her older friends
  • She can hop, run, jump, and hold herself up on monkey bars for a few seconds
  • She can jump from the monkey bars
  • She can swing independently
  • Identify her numbers 1-9 (when interested)
These are only a few of her immense number of skills. Now for the fun part:
Gabby found this "4" all by herself and insisted we take photos near it since she just turned 4.

This is her genuine happiness playing in nature.  She was picking flowers and putting them in her Hello Kitty bag.

Miss sassy pants.

I always wonder if she will keep these bouncing curls forever. I hope so.

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…
