Happy 1st Birthday

Wow...I can't believe that I am already a mother of a 1-year old now. It almost doesn't seem possible. I am sure that when she's 16 I'm going to say the same thing. Part of me doesn't feel old enough, and then again I am reminded in the news how so many young teenagers are pregnant.
Gabrielle has started "dancing" when she hears music (I'll add some video clips soon)--last night it was the Alphabet Song--too cute! She's just growing up so fast that I hope that I don't miss it or take her for granted. She's been such a blessing to our family, and I can't wait to see what she holds in store for us during her second year of life!

Gabrielle only a few days old in the hospital.

Gabrielle opening her first birthday present from Nick and I (thanks for the suggestion, Jill--she loves it!). I really should have taken a couple of pictures of Nick assembling this toy! I will add more birthday pictures I am finishing getting ready for her birthday party on Saturday. I can't wait to see what she'll do with the cake, especially since last week at Kid's Day Out she refused the cupcake they tried to give her!

More next week...
