Masson is here.

Is it just me....or does this kid need to be on a box of fish sticks?! dang. She is cute. But that hat just screams yellow slicker and increased sales of fish for some fast food chain! Gabbi is so fired up about just about everything! On this trip, Gabbi was a singleton and was just absolutley thrilled to be going outside with mom.

Ok, one more... I mean, really. How do you choose?! Soooooo, Todd and Masson made it down. Ellie is getting better with her name. It is actually Mary Allison. Ellie is now saying, "Massanon". She has added a syllable! Closer! Yay. I have back up!
She wasnt' here 30 minutes, and the girls were all piled up on the balcony snacking together! Miss Ellie had her Dora yogurt. And refused to be assisted! Gabbi was happy to have the help. We have started big girl food, like noodles and green peas, and little bites of just about anything we are eating. You can tell she thinks she is so big when she eats with us!
Lindsay, this ones for you! This is one of those WalMart specials for 5 bucks! Gotta love that! And I can't remember who said it. Sorry. But, I, too, LOVE pics taken from behind! So cute. Look at those little curls! Little Miss Gabbi was pretty excited that her Masson was here. well, maybe a WHOLE LOT excited!
Another plus is that now that Masson is here, we will be sure to get family pics. Daddy was out getting carseats and strollers loaded up. He is a good daddy! So, he was absent from these pics last night. But tonight, we got a few with all four of us. Those will have to be tomorrow's meat and potatoes!
Ellie is going through a VERY busy stage! It is nothing short of a miracle that she is even sitting on my lap in ANY of these pictures! She is usually bucking and trying to get out of my lap. I think I was tricking her in the above picture to look at a bird. An imaginary bird, nonetheless! But if you will notice, my imaginative kid sees it too! Ha
And would you look at those little gold shoes?! So precious. Good ol' Target! Well, I will keep em coming. You keep on commenting! I like to read everyone's responses. Melanie

I'm so jealous that you are having fun at the beach and I'm at home! Looks like fun even without your entire crew there yet! Gabbi's getting huge and her hair seems dark all of a sudden. Loving Ellie's curls...they also seem to have sprung lose lately! Can't wait to see what fun adventure happens once Staci's crew gets there! Dannon

Gabbi Girl is something else! She most certainly does need to be on the box of something or on a magazine cover!!!!!!! Happiest Baby on the Block, for sure!

Lovin the Wally World dress & gold sandals...I better hit those places tomorrow!

Emily said...

Mel-I just have to say, you are looking great these days! Love all the pics-keep 'em coming!

Martha from NC said...

Holy Cow!! The pictures of you and the girls with the greenery and flowers in the background is beautiful. Definitely blow one of those up and put it in the condo. Gotta get Todd in some of the pix. That Gaggi must have a smile on her face 24/7. Love, love, love Ellie's curls. Let's face it, your family rocks and we all love you guys to pieces. Keep the pictures coming. We're addicted!!

Melissa said...

I love the pics of you and your girls. My baby girl graduates from high school in 9 days. I remember her first trip to the beach. It goes TOO fast. Enjoy, Enjoy, Enjoy!

Theresa Shirley said...

You'd better send that child's picture in for a contest or something!! She would win--sure as the world. I'm lovin all the pictures. And I agree with some of the other comments--you're looking great Melanie! I know you've got to be proud of your personal accomplishments!! BTW---if I babysit for you, can I come too?? I know how to take care of younguns! :)

MaryH said...

Yep, that's the Gorton Fisherman!

Gold sandals, pictures of curly hair and three lovely ladies with tropical flowers surrounding them - what a treat for the eye and such a bright spot in my day - you just don't know how your pictures and stories lift me up and make me anxious for the birth of my first grandbaby around July 5! Don't know if it is a boy or a girl - they want a surprise first time around - if it is a girl, I know where to come to get some ideas and/or purchase some cute girlie things! Thanks for sharing all your fun. I love the beach - don't get there for years at a stretch - but when I do.....I just can't take my eyes off of it or keep my toes out of it! Hope you just keep on having more and more fun and keep posting more and more pics.
