Happy Monday...

I had to share this pic of the adorable hair bow/clip holder I ordered from eBay that I got today. I folded up the ribbons to show the butterflies at the bottom, but they will hang down once I get it on the wall. Now, she will have a place for her hair bows and barrettes to clip onto. There isn't much of a collection now, but I'm sure mommy will go nuts once she gets more hair.

I'm sure the pics of Gabriella and her LeapFrog table must be getting old, but it's her favorite spot since she can stand up and play. She's really gotten quite good and popping herself right up to a stand now.

Look ma, one hand

Just the last day or two, Gabriella will bounce up and down and "dance" if you do it and ask her to dance, especially if there's music or sound on one of her toys. It's so cute. She was doing it in the shopping cart at Target today.

Somebody's Been Sleeping in My Bed ....

and there she is!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If I were to guess which cat would sneak into the crib, Apple would have been the last on my list.....

All dressed up for church(terrible pic of mommy).

Got Milk??

Somebody gets quite ticky when she doesn't want what's being served at mealtime!

A basketful of cuteness...

I just love those lips... what I wouldn't do to have mine full like these!

OK, OK... More pics and a thank you to the McKenzie Crew!

I've been called out by Holly for not updating !!! Here are some pics from the last couple of days.

But, first a shout out and thank you to Julia over at the McKenzie Crew for sending Gabriella these adorable kitty slippers and socks. She said she figured since Bing was her buddy, she needed kitties on them :-)

Here is her best Bugs Bunny face.


This is how I found her asleep during her nap.

She got the giggles while I was changing her.

Doesn't she look like I caught her doing something here?

She loves making this funny face now.

Here's that face again.

Tagged for Weirdness

OK, I've been tagged a couple of times. I'm going to do this one and I'm still thinking on the other one(it's a toughie Muriel!!).

This one was from Farrah.

I'm supposed to name 6 weird things about me.... As weird as people may think I am, I had a hard time with this one. So, keep the laughter to yourself if it's corny.

1. I hate frogs. I'd rather run across a snake than a slimy frog. But, I love cute little pictures of frogs and stuffed ones etc.

2. I'm not exactly a neat housekeeper, but I can't stand a dirty kitchen! I can't go to bed after a party until I've cleaned the kitchen(and that can take a while).

3. If I play a game or something on the computer for too long, I won't be able to turn it off in my head when I try to go to sleep that night. One of the many things that can keep me from sleeping. Ah, the joys of insomnia.

4. The older I get the less tolerant of the heat I get. Yet, I love living in Florida.

5. I love to watch blood and guts on TV. Not reenactments, but the real thing like surgeries, ER stuff,etc. Does anyone remember the show where they used to show all kinds of surgeries? I loved it!

6. Now, given #5 above, it's certainly weird that I will pass out from the most minor of injuries,etc. I once had a pretty minor cut and passed out cold while Ferdy was cleaning it up. Not the first such incident. I was told by a dr. it's called a vagral nerve response where for any kind of injury, your body sends the blood to the injured area and away from your brain.

I'm not going to tag anyone as this seems to have made the rounds. But, if you're a reader and are so inclined, consider yourself tagged!

Daddy's Little Girl

Gabriella and daddy went to a Corvette show today. Gabriella is going to have to love football(the Steelers) and Corvettes. Hopefully daddy will be able to finish his 1966 Corvette that he's restoring by the time Gabriella can drive :-)

Sarah, you were right... she was posed in a 'Vette. One that's just her size.

Since mommy had the day to herself(my first full day since she came home!), I went shopping! But, of course, I didn't buy a thing for myself, only for Gabriella. Having a girl is some kind of dangerous! I know all the Guatemama's can certainly attest to that(Ginger and Sig in particular!).

Using Up Those 9 Lives

This would be why Bing is sometimes lucky I don't kill him! This is my dining room sideboard that he decided was a nice place to take a nap.

Gabriella is getting stronger and stronger every day. And not just physically. She can be pretty darn strong-willed too!!

Just Another Day

I can't think of a catchy title, so..... Just some pics from the last couple of days.

This is her favorite toy because she can get up on her knees and play.

She now just wants to pull up on everything. And that means climbing all over me like a monkey when we're on the floor.

Of course, Bing has to get in on the action.... I'm thinking he may need his own blog soon as he's becoming famous!

Happy 10 Months!

Gabriella is 10 months old today. It's hard to believe that in just 2 short months she'll be a year old already. I was looking back at some pictures of when she first came home and she has changed so much. Especially in the hair department!

Then ....

And today....
