My sweet Gabrielle! You are getting so big and changing so much these past few months. It's like you've had a huge development explosion and are starting to demand new experiences and opportunities to learn and grow. You are just itching to move around and my heart aches for you as I know you really want to jump up and go and explore.
What I love most is that even though you can't move, you signal to us by moving your body in the directions that you want to move. I am so happy we found a walker that you can move around in. You only go backwards at the moment but your face lights up as you move from room to room. I will never forget the first day we put you in it and every time you moved your dad, and your two brothers and I hooted and hollered and clapped for you. You were all smiles and the four of us were so proud and happy for you.
You are so smart. You are so social and I love how you light up when people come and talk to you. You love all the attention and you have so much to say.
We put you in your stander for the first time the other day and once we figured out how to make it comfortable for you, you loved the viewpoint it provided. You stood tall and played with your books and puzzles while the rest of us laughed and clapped for you. You loved being a big girl standing beside your brothers. You were beaming Gabrielle.
Happy 20 month milestone beautiful girl. We love you and are so proud of you.
