GFR @ 9 Months

Uncle Sam Wants You!

In this election year, Gabriella is putting her new favorite trick--pointing--to good use by helping out Uncle Sam (and, if truth be told, to boss around her mother, too).

Infectious Joy

This picture captures Gabriella's joy for life, which is absolutely infectious. Who knew that a squinty-eyed, chubby-cheeked face with only two teeth and faux-hawk could be so endearing?

And here's a picture of me at around the same age, if you're wondering where she gets her irresistible good looks from :)

Little Mermaid

Looks like the aquariums at Atlantis finally rubbed of on her. Gabriella's latest trick is imitating her favorite underwater creatures with a pretty damn good fish face.

Her first word is ...

Dada! Check it out.

Adam's 7th birthday party

Gabriella had a ball. Here she is basking in the love and attention of Mumpy and Ducky.

And here she is amusing her cousin Jonathan, who was oh so sweet with her that day.

Miss Independent ...

... having lunch w/ Elmo.

Up to no good.

My two troublemakers :) You can't tell me this child isn't her father's daughter.

Sugar and spice and everything nice.

That phrase couldn't better describe my sweet, fiesty little girl who melts my heart at least once a day just by being herself.

Gabriella spends most of her time these days exploring the world around her, which she finds absolutely fascinating.

I told Michael last night that she brings more joy to a single day than we used to experience in a whole month.
