They say time flies when you’re having fun. This is definitely true of us the last 4 yrs! Gabi keeps us on our toes, and keeps us quite entertained in the process. It is difficult to remember life before Gabi was born, but I do know that it wasn’t quite as fun as it is today. I am so thankful that God saw fit to bless our family with her presence 4 yrs ago!
Gabi is our most sensitive child, at this point. It is not at all unusual for her to reduce to a puddle of tears if something/someone scares her, or if one of her sisters is hurt or sad. Nathan and I have wondered a number of times how God is going to use this attribute in her future… I am confident that He has a plan!
I love seeing my girls grow and mature. Gabi is technically supposed to be starting pre-school this year, but we did that last yr and she is bored with it! This week she has started “writing messages” to us, sounding out the words and writing them on her own. Sometimes they require translation, but for the most part they make sense! I can’t believe the things that she picks up all on her own.
The day before Gabi’s birthday, Nathan and I took her on a special date. We ran a couple errands to get things for her birthday party, went to lunch at the place of her choice (Burger King!), and of course got ice-cream before heading home. We all had a blast!!
We had a REALLY fun birthday party, and I took a bajillion pictures! But I will try to contain myself and just share my favorites.
We are thankful beyond words to have Gabriella Joy. She is a constant ray of sunshine in our world!
