Sorry for the delay in an update - I know everyone has been waiting! Ferdy and I are finally starting to feel better - still have to get it all out(one would think I had expelled enough, but apparently not), but much better. Gabriella was doing much better and last night and today she seems congested again. I'll call the dr. Monday if she's still all raspy. She's still quite happy, but I hate hearing her breathe like that.

Gabriella is still a very content and happy baby. She gets a little antsy in the late afternoons, but is happy if she gets carried around or strolled. When the weather here finally cools off, she will enjoy walks through the neighborhood. For now, walks through the house have to do as we would both melt if we went out.

Yesterday, she got to meet all of daddy's co-workers and she flashed her smile for everyone.

Here's a picture from yesterday. She was going absolutely bonkers playing with us while I blew in her face. She just thought that was the cat's meow.
