Gabbi loves her breakfast!

One of my very favorite times of the day is when my baby girl (I CAN call this one that!) gets up bright and early and comes into my room with the first words out of her mouth in the morning, "Mama. Mama." She is my little love bug! Soon thereafter, I hear, "Ceweel". And by that she is referring to Cereal! She usually takes it dry, thank you very much!
It's also one of the only times of the day when she will break away from me even momentarily to do something alone vs. right up on my hip/ leg/ shoulder!
And I always relish these morning minutes before the rest of the crew gets up! Just me and Miss Lou loving each other and getting ready for the day!
Ol Miss "big girl" is usually tucked right up under her daddy's side, because "Big girl" or not, she still prefers our bed to hers!!
Unlike my "baby girl" who says, "MY BED" just before all the lights are out. She's a sweet pea, that's for sure!

She is such a little cutie pie! My girls like cereal dry in a bowl too! We tend to try to keep things low maintenance around here with 3 girls ages 4 and under! :) The view from your kitchen is amazing. I would never want to leave the table!

Cherish these moments b/c if you blink she'll be 13 and rolling her eyes at you while she swings that head around. LOL She's too precious!

Love those one on one moments with your child. Having two it's not always easy to get them so you can truly cherish it when it happens. Love seeing these pictures and glad to know that she detaches sometimes. Yeah for dry cereal (believe it's the only way to eat it)! So many cute post and can't wait for the next one.

Those owl pjs are almost as adorable as the kiddo in them.
I just love all the different glimpses of your new house in various photos.

She looks so teeny tiny at your huge table and in front of that window! She is precious :) Your meal time view is simply awesome---wow!

Gabbi is precious, that's for sure! It's so sweet that she's such a Mama's girl (even though I know it can be trying sometimes when she won't let go of you :) I agree with the others--that view is fabulous! I think I can see a little snow in the pics, and I know you mentioned it. How much did ya'll get? I live about 30 miles Northwest of Atlanta, and we got about 5 inches of snow with about a 1/2 inch of ice on top of that. The whole ATL area has been pretty much paralyzed since last Sunday. Most people stayed home much of the week. I work at the Power Company though, so had to go to work!! I think they got the Dome cleaned up real good though for our Falcons to play today....

I don't comment often but I do read your blog daily and love keeping up with the girls. Gabby is such a sweetheart and I know you cherish these times with her and with Ellie, too. They grow up too fast. About the dry cereal, Brandon always wanted his dry, too. Was horrified and upset once when a friend fixed his Cheerios and put milk in them.
