Picture Catch-Up

Here are pics since last week... I met my friend Connie and her daughter at a little splash area at a local park and much to my surprise, Gabriella actually went in it and had a blast. The secret? There were lots of buckets and cups that other kids had all over and she couldn't resist going in after them. So, it looks like hopefully we've conquered the fear of the squirting water at the splash parks and she can enjoy it. I'm so glad that Connie brought her camera and captured some amazing photos.

These were taken before the fear of the running water was conquered. She didn't want the shower on her.

Guess Who?

Recognize these two cuties with Gabriella?

How cute are they holding hands?

Yep, it's John-Bryan and Abby Grace!
We got to spend the day at Sea World yesterday with JuJu's Crew! They were on their way through Orlando back home. The entire crew was there. I should have gotten a picture of all of us!
Miss G made a new best friend. Erin took her in the splash zone and held her and played with her. She was scared of the water and didn't want to get down, but as long as Erin held her she was squealing with delight.

Two tired girls at the end of the day.

Can I go on the record as saying I think that yesterday was the hottest I've ever been in my life??? Thoughts of spontaneous combustion crossed my mind. I wished I brought a change of clothes for me and I would have been in that splash zone myself!
Thanks for letting us hang with you guys!!

FFF - Guatemalan Pride

Since Sarah is on vacation this week, there's no FFF theme. So, I thought I'd post a picture of Gabriella in her new Guatemalan ribbon shirt. A fellow Guatemama from our agency opened an Etsy shop and is selling these. Isn't it cute????

Gotta have one? Click here. Tell her I sent you if you decide to get one.

More Pics of Miss G

I took Gabriella over to my friend's house yesterday for a photo shoot. Who knew I'd get such a workout jumping around like a maniac to try to keep her attention and get her to smile?!!! She did manage to capture some good ones.

Check out her blog to see the favorites:

Be sure to check out the rest of the blog to see her beautiful pictures and her little cutie!!!

Though you can't really see it well, the bow with the pink and black outfit is a Holly G special!!! I love it!!!!

And now following up those nice professional photos with some from the last few days.......

Everytime we go to Cracker Barrel, Gabriella looks for the rocking catepillar. We went last week wtih Grandma and it was on clearance, so Grandma bought it for her. If only it had a volume button for the "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star".

The other day I went into the bathroom and discovered this. Boy did I laugh. She apparently hung all her purses on the toilet paper holder that morning while I showered. We don't have the T.P. on there because she'd unroll it all. Not to mention, the holder normally functions as a microphone. That's right. While I am, well, doing my business, Miss G likes to sing into it. Great fun when she insists "Mommy, sing" as I sit there!

She retrieved them all....

And as of today, we're still trying to get all of our red, white & blue worn!!!

My attempt at two ponies in the back.... A difficult feat without much hair to work with and one squirmy toddler.

Blah, Blah, I got Nothing

So, nothing really exciting going on around here, so I won't be winning any blog awards for my wit and earth-shattering news. So, I leave you with pictures of Miss G. That's why you're here anyway, right?

Pancakes taste better when you eat them with your shades on, right?

I'm telling you, the Paris runways better be getting ready for Miss G. She's going to take them by storm one day! (um, yeah, ignore the laundry and junk all over the dresser)

Can't you just see the sassiness in her??

FFF - 4th of July Style

Since I don't really have any dancing pics for the FFF theme, I'll do 4th of July instead.

Why yes, that is Bing in the sandbox!
