My Tag and some pictures

OK, I was tagged by several blogger peeps and awarded this Brilliant Blogger Award.... I am not tagging anybody though because this one definitely has made it's way around and there's nobody left!!!

So here is how this thing works: 1st I have to answer a little questionnaire, which is pretty much all about ME! Get excited folks--this is big stuff! Then, I have to choose 7 bloggers who I feel are BRILLIANT (like I said, not going to do that part) and I give them the award.

Here is the questionnaire (drum roll please...):

B. Best friend? Sares. My bestest bud and Miss G's godmother.
C. Cake or pie? What does Tiramisu qualify as?
D. Day of choice? Saturday or Sunday
E. Essential item? My computer(I have a pretty serious blog addiction going!)
F. Favorite color? Purple
G. Gummy bears or worms? neither really. Not much of a candy person.
H. Hometown? Merritt Island, FL
I. Indulgence? Key Lime Martinis(hey, what can I say? I know how to make them and I'm not afraid to use it!)
J. January or July? January since July is soooooooooooooo hot here
K. Kids? The fabulous and fiesty Miss G
L. Life isn’t complete without? Family, friends and my kitties
M. Marriage date? September 17, 1994
N. Number of brothers & sisters? None, I'm an only
O. Oranges or apples? Apples
P. Phobias? Frogs, lizards - yuck
Q. Quotes? "Not flesh of my flesh nor bone of my bone, yet still miraculously my own. Never forget for a single minute that you weren’t born under my heart, but in it" Author unknown
R. Reasons to smile? Miss G's smile and her dimples that light up a room
S. Season of choice? Spring
T. Tag seven peeps! (nope)
U. Unknown fact about me? I was adopted(though I think this one is known by now by most)
V. Vegetable? Fresh asparagus
W. Worst habits? Procrastination
X. X-ray or ultrasound? um.... yeah. Had both. Is that what the question was???
Y. Your favorite food? Italian
Z. Zodiac sign? Saggitarius


And lastly a few cute pictures.

One morning I was doing some cleaning(gasp!) and I put Gabriella on the couch with Sesame Street. I was gone for a few minutes and came back in and found her sacked out on the couch. This has NEVER happened!!! I know it looks like her eyes are open, but that's how she sleeps sometimes. And please notice her awesome footwear!










The other night before her bath after she was undressed, I put her towel on her head and she took off running through the house with it on. I had to chase her down to get it off and get her into the bath.





And here's that smile that lights up the room.

She is just adorable. Sophia sleeps with her eye half open also. We call it creepy eye.

So cute! Yes that smile lights up a room and the dimples are irresistible! Love those towel photos.

Yes, the fancy fuzzy footwear is a little warm for this time of year in FL. So cute though.

I LOVE when it is suddenly silent in the other room and Savannah is surprisingly sleeping. Very rare here too. Has happened 2 or 3 times in 2 years.

Thanks for your update and encouragement with the language. It is great to hear how Gabriella is progressing, since Savannah started speech a few months later. We have combining very rarely. I think that was a fluke or flukes, but shows she can do it. Our combining is words that go together like ice pop (but she used to just say pop), uh-oh, good girl, seat belt, iced tea, etc. We are on the repeat everything and anything, the best we can. That is a lot of progress and an increase in confidence though. It is exciting though. We just have to have a lot of patience and it is taking longer than some other children.

That last pic made me laugh out loud! You need to put that pic on your refrigerator door so you can look at it on those days when her halo is a bit askew!
(My girl sleeps with her eyes partially open too - creeps me out)

She is just beautiful! Her smile and dimples are gonna melt someone's heart one day!
