May brought many exciting activites for our little gabster. The month began with a very welcome visit from G's Auntie Rae and her beau, Yaneev. It was clear that Rae was quite impressed with how far Gabby has come since her first birthday, and Yaneev was definitely smitten with our little girl. Aw shucks!
Gabby had the pleasure of sharing her cousin Kayla's celebration of turning 1-year old. She had a great time, and even tried to exchange kisses on the way out!
Last weekend, B spent a nice weekend with her friends in San Antonio, while Gabby had a spendid weekend with her Dada in charge. (As if he isn't in charge when Mama's around!) Among many activities, the two of us went for a nice long stroll around the Jamaica Pond and had a visit to the supermarket.
On the Friday of our weekend alone, I experienced an awesome thing while picking up Gabby at daycare. She was in a great mood, then I told her, "Gabby, it's time to go home." She replied, "Go!" That's my girl. She's been excited about "go" for some time now. But then she waved to each toddler, and each teach and said, "Bye-Bye." I was speechless. Literally. It was amazing. Of course, it's been a little over a week now, and she's an old hat at "Bye-bye." She says "bye-bye" to people, fruit, and garbage. She's so unjudgemental.
Later, we travelled to Taunton for a celebration in honor of Auntie Marta's College Graduation! Yay, Auntie Marta. Gabby was put to work cleaning the deck in preparation of the party! So obedient.
zoo. Gabby saw peacocks, prairie dogs, pigeons, squirrels...and that's not all! There were zebras, a lion, kangaroos, ostriches, emus, tapirs, fish, a hippo, sheep, goats, a cow, ponies, and goats... My favorite was the family of gorillas. There was a father, mother, and a baby just two months older than G. So cute. I'm sure I forgot something, but hey...we'll be back!
