It's Official Gabbie is TWO!

I can hardly believe Gabbie is 2 years old today. As I got her out of her crib this morning and wished her a Happy Birthday my eyes filled up with tears for her birth mother. I cannot imagine the pain she must feel not just today but everyday. She was able to leave Gabbie some final words and based on these, I know there is no doubt that she loves Gabbie very much. She prayed Gabbie would have a family that loves her and she has that exact thing. I just wish her birth mother knew that.

I received a beautiful email from Gabbie's foster mother today. She always remembers these special occasions! Today we hung around the house and played with new toys. Gabbie took a 3.5 hour nap after being up so late last night. Tomorrow at school she still has one more birthday celebration and then it is officially over!

A couple of answers to the birthday party comments. The tutu is from your favorite place Rhonda, Gymboree! The whole outfit is from there actually. I already had the shirt and went in looking for the hair things when I saw the Tutu!

The cake was definitely not made by me! I can hardly make a grilled cheese!!! The cake is from a lady who makes cakes out of her home. She does a great job! Gabbie loved it!

Now for a couple of pictures of the birthday girl from today.

Happy Birthday my sweet Gabbie. We love you!
