3.5

Since I no longer write monthly posts about my kids (although I could probably write a daily weekly one), I have decided to do one at the half way mark, so here it is...
Gaby is 3 1/2 months today..yes.. a whole 42 months! Time is sure flying in her little life and she is, of course, making our life very joyful and totally eventful...
Let's see... Gaby is such a character; she is funny, sassy, energetic, creative, intelligent...and... very...very...very moody! wow!.. I know I'm supposed to sit here and write about how "perfect" my child is, but she sure is challenging at times and is at a very difficult age.. She has a mind of her own and has a very hard time complying with our wishes (this is not to say she's a defiant child..she really isn't).. it's either her way or the high way.. she'd rather die before doing what we ask her on the first attempt.. Bribing doesn't work with her and we definitely need to catch her on one of her good days, otherwise all hell breaks loose!
.. with that said, Gaby is also very loving and extremely caring.. She is a very sweet child (on her good days!) and loves being part of the "action"... She is really starting to show her bold personality and I love her for that...
Meal time is still an issue as she is very picky with the foods she likes and doesn't seem to enjoy eating as much as I do (I wish I could eat as little as she does.. LOL)...But boy does she have a SWEET TOOTH!.. I wonder who she gets it from... LOL!
She has been fully potty trained for a whole year.. once she was out of diapers (which she did for day and night at the same time), there was no looking back.. I'm proud to say she has NEVER had an "accident" and even though I complained at the time, she basically potty trained within a couple of weeks and that was the end of the diaper era in our house (..and am I glad about that!)...
Gaby LOVES school.. she adores her teacher and her classmates and is quite popular in her class.. Everyone calls her Gaby P. (there are two other Gabys in her class), so it's very funny to see how she identifies herself with the letter "P"... She loves dolls, singing, drawing and gymnastics... She is also proud of her "long" hair and loves to play hair dresser...among other things...
Gaby has a great love-hate relationship with her big sister and I love to see how much she loves Olivia and looks up to her despite their daily occasional disagreements...
It's truly a joy to be Gaby's mother and I'm thoroughly enjoying this amazing experience...
Thank you, God for this beautiful daughter you gave me!  I'm so blessed to be her mother! ;)
