Welcome to America Gabi!

I think she likes it here--and she is a full US citizen now.

Last nite at the airport was a circus, but she was a trooper--even I was overwhelmed by all the people, but she took it all in stride.

She makes the funniest faces. She does not have a lot of words yet, but she says Dada at least and sometimes Hola, but it is more like Lolalololololo, according to Mandy

She seemed to like everyone, but was a sucker for the balloons, and putting the keys in her mouth and then putting them in my mouth. She was fascinated by Barry, but most babies are--I think he freaked her out by being so tall--she just kept looking up and up and up some more, and he just kept going.

Great pictures! You could have a
3rd career in photography.
Thanks for helping to make Gabi's debut special.
Where are the other hundred pics?
Love you too much,

Cute kid. And from the looks of the pictures, she's a little socialite.

Your pictures are incredible! Between your horse pictures and action shots of people, you may need to get another degree or something. I thought she did well too. But she likes to be the center of attention. She did love Barry despite his hugeness. And she loved playing with you with those keys. I think you'll appreciate your enthusiasm for the spoken word once the amount of people decreases.

By the way, she also says "mama" and has temporarily abandoned "dada". For now at least, everyone is "mama".

Thanks for being there. We love the pictures and the fact that you finally got her to yourself at the end. You're gonna have to be more aggressive.

Love you,
mandy, edward and gabi

She's adorable Paige. I'm glad that this is such a happy new beginning for everyone. Once the dust settles a bit, please take more pictures of Gabi and I want to see her Pony. HA! Congrats Aunt Paige! ; )

Great pics. Love the one of her and Barry. Be careful, sounds like you are starting to like Gabi already! It is great she is here, but how frustrating that they will soon be leaving for Houston.

Send pics to me, love you
