Wow - Thank You Secret Blog Pal !!!

I received a package today from my SBP. In it I found a beautiful handmade photo album with purple fabric and a cute wooden butterfly on it. If it weren't enough, a little something for the kitties to play with too!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!!!!!!



Crystal, here's your Gabriella fix for the day!!!! Sorry I haven't taken many pics this week. Bad mommy. Bad blogger.






She loves this book that has animals with furry and fuzzy stuff to touch. Her favorite is the long hair that the doggie has. Thanks to Paolo and his mommy and daddy Fran and Carlos for the book!




We are leaving tomorrow to go to Miami Beach for a wedding. It remains to be seen how this plays out. The wedding is on a yacht that will cruise Biscayne Bay for the evening. I plan on bringing the stroller and praying that Gabriella will fall asleep in it. She's never missed her 8pm bedtime by more than about 30 minutes since we came home and since we don't get back to the dock until 11pm, it could get interesting. There is going to be a babysitter available, so hopefully that will allow mommy and daddy a little time to relax and enjoy.

Moving her to the car and then into the hotel and in a crib there should also prove a challenge. It could be a long night for all involved. But, maybe she will surprise us.

She's never been in the car for more than about an hour at a time either. We bought a portable DVD player which she will hopefully find entertaining. She never watches TV because that would require sitting in one spot for longer than 30 seconds, but since she will be stuck, maybe she'll enjoy it.

She will suprise you...I thought Madisyn would be freaked out at the thought of sleeping in a pack and play in a strange hotel room in her OWN room at that..But she went to sleep at 10:00 and slept till 8:00 so I'm sure Gabby will be fine. She is so adorable of coarse! Have fun and post pics when you come home..
