happy birthday, gabby

It is hard to believe that it has been one whole year since we had Gabby. I can't imagine life without her...her little smile, her squinty eyes, her chubby little body and precious personality. She may be one, but she's still my baby! One year ago today...

...we went to Dairy Queen for dinner and decided that the next day would be a good day to have the would be a Saturday, Gray wasn't working...perfect time to pop out a little baby! (hehe! Little did we know we actually would have the baby the next day!)

...I was in labour all night long while my husband slept peacefully. (aarrrgghh!!) ...I gave birth for the second time with no drugs.

...I said "goodbye" to Payton as my baby and she became a big sister.

...we welcomed our precious daughter, Gabriella into this world and into our family.

...I realised that it really WAS possible to love another child just as much as your first. .

..I became a mama all over again, to a perfect little angel...
Happy Birthday, Gabby! We love you more than life've made our little family complete. My sister in law did a cute little slide show of her son on his first birthday, and I totally attempted to do the same last night, but it just did not wokr for me! So I know there are lot of pictures....but scroll down for a little peek at Gabby's first year of life.....*sigh*...I still can't believe she is one year old!

Love you, love you, love you, Gabby!!!
