Birthday Girl!

Happy First Birthday to my princess Gabriella! I can't believe she is already a year old and has been home 6 1/2 months.

Now, apparently, when one turns a year old, it is a signal to become a major DIVA(yes, more than usual)!!!! She has been in quite the mood today! First, my mom, Sarah and I took her to get her pictures taken. Lets just say, the photo shoot was cut short. She was soooo not in the mood. We did manage to get a few good ones, but she was certainly not her happy, smiley self in front of the camera.

We then went to lunch at Bahama Breeze where the 'tude continued with a vengeance. Oh my..... The coconut pineapple martini I had was the only thing that saved it!!

Gabriella and grandma after the pictures. She was happy then - of course!


Waiting for our table.





Here are some of the pics.

This serious face was the look in most of the pictures


Ahhhh, a smile!!





And, that's a wrap....



We don't have anything big planned for today since her party is on the 24th. I bought some cupcakes and we'll see what happens later when she wakes up from her much needed nap.

Look those bare feet with the dress! So adorable. You got some good ones, but we have the crying one too.

Happy 1st Birthday! Ours is on Saturday and we might get SNOW! Oh no! Lots of food and plans.

Yes, the attitude is coming, just whenever I don't get my way. That's all.
