Happy First Birthday Gabi!

One year ago our family welcomed sweet Gabriela into our family. Here are some pictures of Gabi as she has grown over the past year.

My only memories of the first two months were anxiety, frustration and exhaustion, but month three was a turning point. She finally started gaining weight!

One of Gabi’s favorite activities when we are outside is to eat dirt, so for her enjoyment, I made her a dirt cake for her birthday. Yes, I thought it was a good idea to confuse her and encourage even more consumption of dirt on her part. Why not?mmmm . . . let me at it!
BC (before cake)Ah, it was so worth it!

I’ll post more pictures of Gabi’s party later. For now, I hope you enjoyed my little stroll down memory lane!

  1. It was pretty easy to make Lillie. My only regret is that the recipe called for vanilla pudding, but I wish I would have made it chocolate pudding instead. I mean it's dirt after all!

  2. I'm super impressed with your culinary skills. And even more impressed with what a good mama you are! Happy Birthday Gabi-dear!
