8!

Gaby is 8 today! Time sure flies when you're having fun.. just 8 short years ago, I was in the hospital meeting my 2nd baby and getting ready to be a mom of 2 and today she's blowing 8 whole candles on a birthday cake!
Gaby is the most challenging out of my 3 children; she's incredibly sweet but also incredibly stubborn, really helpful but also really lazy, very sweet and also very sour at times.. Gaby just dances to her own beat and there's no changing her...
She is a very independent girl and most times prefers to play alone rather than in groups; she doesn't mingle without a purpose and doesn't usually get involved in trouble or gossip. At the young age of 8, Gaby is capable of formulating her own very strong opinions and very rarely does she follow people's lead if she doesn't agree; her strong character and leading personality really amaze me and I am so proud to call her my daughter. 
Gaby is also an incredibly emotional person, I have a theory that she feels 10x more what people normally feel because she can cry at the drop of a hat; her sense of humor is lacking and she really hates it when people tease her for no reason... this has proven really hard for Olivia who is a natural joker and is always teasing her little sister...
She is an amazing big sister and is so proud of her role in this family; she is a girl with a strong sense of faith and a very gentle soul. I know she will go places and I can't wait to watch her grow into a strong and willful woman. 
Gaby will be starting 3rd grade soon and she is so ready for the challenge, she really loves her school and all her friends and I know she will do amazing!
Gaby.. please know that we love you so much; you are such an important part of this family and we feel so blessed that God chose us to be your parents. 
Here are some pictures of Gaby's birthday celebrations, one with her friends and another one with the family!

Happy Birthday, little one!
