Wonderful Wednesday

First, someone (I think Shelby or Farrah) asked if Gabriella was always smiling or if she ever cries. Believe me, she does!! It's almost always when you leave her alone for any amount of time now(oh, let's say for mommy to go potty?!). Here's proof:

Mommy, pretty please get me outta here

Holy cow, you'll have to excuse all the drool in these next pictures. I had no idea she had slimed herself that badly!

She's really good at cruising furniture now and once in a while she lets go and stands and balances for a few seconds on her own.

And of course, what would the day be without Bing silliness? Crystal, these are dedicated to you! He decided to hang out in the sink while Gabriella got her bath tonight.

A Belated Introduction

At last, here are some pictures of Gabriella's cousin Piero Miguel born December 23. He is living in Germany with his mommy(Ferdy's sister) and daddy.

Is he not the cutest????

Since they live so far away, unfortunately, Gabriella and Piero won't get to meet each other for some time. We are hoping to make the trip to Puerto Rico in December when he will be baptized and for his 1st birthday party. Between now and then, let's hope Gabriella decides that sitting still or in someone's lap is doable or we could have a repeat of that airline incident that occurred recently!

Another Week Gone By.....

Here are some random pics from this week. I've been a bad mommy and haven't taken that many the past few days.

Mommy, are we going shopping????

We are? To Target??? Yeah!!!!

You know mommy... I think it's time you use that spa gift certificate and get a pedicure!!

Don't laugh at my bedhead!! That's not very nice.

Everyone in the house is doing this(except mommy):

I accidentally let her fall asleep in her pack-n-play(it wasn't quite nap time yet), so now I'm just letting her sleep. If I wake her and put her in the crib, I'm sure she'll scream like a banshee. So,let's hope this is more than a 10 minute nap or I'll pay for the rest of the afternoon/evening...

SBP Strikes Again!

My Secret Blog Pal sent me a package today. This "adorable" pink-striped onesie(which miss G will look adorable in!), the cutest kitty cat burp cloth and Bath & Body Works aromatherapy Tranquil Mint wash & body lotion (does she know me or what????).

Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She already knows how to share....

Gabriella had a little cold and she was more than happy to share with mommy. Only, for mommy it wasn't such a little cold. I was in bed the entire day Saturday. Thank goodness it was a weekend and daddy was here to take care of Gabriella. I don't have any idea what I would have done otherwise. I feel better today as far as tiredness/achiness, but am stuffed up and can't taste a thing!

So... only one picture taken all weekend. Just ignore how awful I look and concentrate on the cute one in pink!

Some More Valentine's Wishes... A Day Late

Gabriella LOVES balloons!!

Yesterday, she had the balloon in the playpen and I heard her start fussing. I looked over and Bing had gotten the balloon away from her! Oh, and just so you know... we don't just keep cardboard boxes laying around. It is Bing's absolute favorite place to lounge around, so we keep it for him. Sad, I know....

And here are some pics of Gabriella and her buddy from a couple of days ago...

There's that Bugs Bunny face again
