G is for

teal is Gabby's favorite color this m onth... it changes every month... it's a planned thing..... red is next month
G is for Gabby
Gabrielle, actually but she prefers Gabby. All of her teachers think she was named incorrectly because she never says a word in school. She is extremely shy. At home is another story. Today's letter is completely dedicated to Gabby and those of you who have or who are a middle child can understand why I would make sure she doesn't have to share G with anything else! The middle child seems to take a constant inventory of who has what and how much and the mother of that child tends to do a balancing act that would frighten any circus performer. Gabby is 12 and is going to turn the craft/art/creative world upsidedown one day, she has such amazing talent. She sews, knits, crochets, embroiders, draws, paints, makes miniatures from clay and is pretty much self-taught and self-inspired..... a natural. Sure, she sees it all around the house but she kind of hangs back and takes it in and will come out with something all her own, she is awesome. She's pretty funny too; every time we walk into a store she makes up a password that we have to say as we walk in the door, it's usually something embarrassing and she usually bails on me last second leaving me saying something like "Go Meat".
I love my girl!

Great photos of Gabby. Love No. 2 & No. 3 the best.
I so know what you mean about middle child ways (Syndrome).
Although I'm a twin, my twin is middle so to speak and she used to be our inventorer.
So when does she start her blog?
"Hello" Gabby.

What a cute and funny little story--Gabby sounds like a wonderful person. It's wonderful that she feels comfortable in exploring the world and the way she can make it her own through her own inherent creativity and imagination. Of course, a loving home has fostered this and you should be proud of yourself.
