365 days of gabby

Oh gabby-i can't believe you are already the big 1!  Time just flew and i have enjoyed every minute with you!  You make us laugh every second of the day and keep us on our toes.  you are always getting into lemons food, opening and shutting doors, climbing the stairs, pulling everything out of the cabinets and the drawers that you can reach.  I often wonder what our house would look like if i never intervened.

a few things that you might like to know about yourself right now when you are older-

-you always throw your food when you are D.O.N.E.  not just throw, i mean you get this little stinker face on and you hold the food out in your hand and watch to see what i am going to do.  then when i say no and try to stop you, you drop it as if you are saying "haha what are you gonna do about it mom?" 

- you can climb those stairs faster than lightening!  I see you headed for them and just when I put down what i'm doing to go after you, you have already made it to the top.  

-you love to blow kisses with the backside of your hand and you wave by only moving your wrist.

-you say WOW to everything in a whisper voice

-you love lights.  Your daddy and I are planning a trip to the lighting section at Home Depot one of these days.

-you are the best eater (knock on wood).  you love eggs, grapes, spinach, cabbage, carrots, zucchini, tomatoes, whole wheat tortillas, chicken, you name it. 

- you DO NOT like to cuddle or be held facing in.  you always have to face out and i'm assuming it's because you're a little independent.  

-you can chuck your binkies so far at nap and bed time I end up buying more because i can never find them.  

-you have 4 teeth up top and 2 on the bottom

-when you laugh, you crunch up your nose and it's quite possibly the cutest thing i have ever seen.

-your obsessed with animals.  you love to go sit by lemons and grammy and gramdpas dog holly.  you could play fetch with holly all day.  I love that you are nice and gentle when you pet them too. 

-you try to put everything on top of your head.   Combs, zucchini, hats, washcloths necklaces- and then you throw your hands up and squeal like its the funniest thing ever.  

-you love to drink out of everyones glass.  and when we give you a sip, you immediately stick your hand in the water and try to fish out the ice cubes.  Then after taking a nice big gulp, you turn and look at me and say "ahh" like it's the most refreshing thing you've had all day.

-you could probably eat a whole roll of toilet paper, paper towels, or entire magazine if i let you.  yes, you love paper.  

-you're the happiest, most easy going baby in the world.  and that comes from everyone not just me.

-i'm amazed at how fast you can unroll the toilet paper.  i turn my back on you for one second and poof!  it's all on the floor.
