Gabbie's favorite things

One of Gabbie's favorite things to do is dress up. She is a huge girly girl. She loves dresses, skirts, tutus, shoes, princess shoes, purses, and probably the most jewelry! Every day she gets dressed up. At Maw Maw's today she wore her tutu skirt and a pretty necklace. She would have worn more but they get tangled and I told her only one necklace. We left the house to shopping and she realized she forgot her necklace. She was not happy. So, Maw Maw fixed that really quickly by buying necklaces and hair pretties (what Gabbie calls them) to match. Gabbie was super happy then.

Gabbie was even happier today when we hit the shoe section of the store. I came around the corner and there was Maw Maw sitting on a bench and Gabbie on the floor trying on a pair of princess shoes that had lights on them. They were discussing how they were too big. Gabbie took them off, put them back in the box, and walked them over to the correct section to put them on the shelf. She then started shopping for more shoes. I ended up finding the princess shoes in her size so she walked out with a new pair of princess sandals with lights that she loves!

Last night we were at a friend's house who has a 3 year old girl. She had 5 pairs of shoes for Gabbie that her daughter barely wore and had outgrown. Gabbie was happy as could be with her new shoes. She looked at each pair, held each shoe, and talked away about them until we got home.

Finally jewelry has really become her main love lately. I will let the pictures do the talking for this gypsy girl as my mom calls her!

She is serious when it comes to putting her jewelry on!

My beautiful girl at Maw Maw's house today.

Gabbie loves Maw Maw's new fairies.

Soccer Time!

Soccer started last week. It is a parent and me class so Daddy did it with Gabbie since I have absolutely no athletic ability (shocking I know!) Gabbie did pretty well for the most part. She is definitely shy to new situations so at first she wanted Daddy to hold her. After a few minutes she got down and started kicking away. She loves to score goals. She kept losing focus and running back to Maw Maw and me but for the most part she did great considering it was her first night. Jack is also in the same soccer class so they both had a blast. Now for pictures.


My little runner!

When Jack first got there

Gabbie liked to hold the ball a lot. I am guessing Jack is explaining the rules here!

Aren't they so cute?

Gabbie was going in for a kiss right here!

4th of July

We spent the 4th of July at Maw Maw's house. Gabbie loves the fireworks. She definitely loves them a lot more than me. When I was little I couldn't stand them. This year they were a little better because I got to watch the excitement in Gabbie's eyes and see her reaction to each one. I love watching her see and experience new things. She ended up having a fabulous 4th of July.

Notice how Gabbie is holding Joe's hand. She sure loves her cousin!
