She thinks Mom’s sunglasses are pretty cool.

We’ve been pretty busy over the past month. Gaby is getting steadier when she walks. Plus, she’s starting copy catting things we do. She has figured out how to get in and out of a car she got from Grandma and Grandpa Green for her birthday. She is just a lot of fun to watch. She continues to bring so much joy to our lives. Every day is something new.


We had Gaby’s birthday party the Saturday after her birthday. She didn’t take very good naps that day, so by 5:00 she was grouchy as can be. She didn’t want anything to do with her cake. She wasn’t too into her presents. Not much made her happy. However, everyone else had a great time.

I dressed Gaby in the Easter dress she didn’t get to wear because it was too cold. She looked adorable. The party was Elmo themed, so I borrowed an Elmo cake pan and made her cake. When she got in the car and saw a huge Elmo face sitting next to her, she got pretty excited. Mitch’s sister Melissa brought the bounce house her boys got for Christmas a couple years ago. All the kids that came to the party had a blast.

Next year, should be better.

Gaby loves to swing! Mitch put this swing under our deck. Then Grandma VanPool and I took Gaby to the park. She didn’t know what to think of that swing first, but she quickly warmed up to it. These pictures were taken mid-March.

I promise, I will be a better blogger. I was unbelievably busy with work from March through May. Now things have significantly slowed down and I hope to update the blog with new pictures and family goings-ons. I have a mid-year resolution to better keep up with the blog.
