First, I want to say that I decided to give up our blog Graham Crackers. It's just too much work trying to keep up 2 blogs. Plus, there are times when some things we do involve Gabi and the rest of the family and I had trouble deciding which blog to post them on. After I thought about it more, I realized the rest of the family is just as much part of Gabi's World as she is. She's not here by herself after all. I will leave that blog up for archive purposes, but I will not add any new posts to it.
With that said, Preston has become a Paci-holic. He is the only one of the 5 kids who has kept the pacifier this long. Of course, I wasn't there for Christopher and Anthony's experience, but Ryan assures me theirs was gone by this age. Jeremy gave it up on his own at around 3 months old, and Gabi gave it up sooner because it was just too much work for her heart to suck on a pacifier before her heart surgery. Now, Preston is waking every 2 hours in the middle of the night because he has lost his pacifier. Man, I feel like I have a newborn again. Jeremy and I were joking around the other day about his addiction. I said Preston needed to join P.A. (Paci-holics Anonymous). Jeremy then proceeded to speak for Preston saying, "Hi! I'm Baby One (Jeremy's nickname for Preston), and I'm addicted to pacifiers." I laughed and added, "It's been 5 minutes since my last pacifier." Jeremy claps. LOL
I love great deals, don't you? Gabi has outgrown her winter jacket that she has used the past 3 years so I knew this year I had to break down and buy a new one. My mom bought her last one through half.com for $50. It was a great jacket, so I thought I'd be heading there soon to find a new one. But, while I was grocery shopping at Aldi's of all places, a pink jacket caught my eye. It was really cute, but I couldn't find a size. I tried it on Gabi and it was the perfect size. It was reversible, furry on one side and water-resistant on the other. It was nice and thick and constructed nicely. And the best part it was $15!! Can you believe that?
Here's a quiz: Gabi knows the answer. Where did the name of this post come from? One hint is a given, if Gabi knows it, then it is something she loves. The other hint is it's a song! I'll link back to the winner(if there is one) in the next post with the answer.
