Gabbi checkin out the view.

Beware. This is a seriously SWEET post. I mean... drippin' with sweetness! Fresh up from a nap. In sweet pajamas. Sun-kissed. Wet pigtails. ummmm ummm Ummm.

And Holly, NO DOUBT, I will just have to go ahead and put a bathroom in the cottage at the new house for Gabbi Girl to live in when she is in college. She ain't goin' nowhere! She LOVES her mama!

And bless her sweet heart, she tells me OFTEN!

And just like your big sister, HER big sister is always saying, "The big girls are going to do this... or that.... " referring to her and Madi! She'll say,"Gabbi can't go, cause she's a baby."

well that is A-OK with me. I LOVE having a sweet little napping pigtail baby!

She wants her mama first thing in the morning (and by "wants" I mean, wants to hug me and stroke my face, and play with my hair, and look into my eyes and WANT me some more!). She is the most affectionate little thing.

I look forward to the art retreats for many reasons, but one of them is for everyone to meet my babies! And by "everyone", I mean all you , my "friends"!! How funny that we all feel like one big community!? And I really DO feel that way.



I have friends who blog who get, like, one response per post. That would NOT work for me. Know why? I like CONNECTION!! If it werent' for the feedback, I'd just scrapbook. I don't expect a response with that. But here, I DO read every single comment and feel like I actually 'know" many of your personalities. I know who is going to scold me about certain things I say and who will think Ellie's antics are hilarious! I know who will LOVE a new art project too. See? We're all good buddies!

And in case you didn't catch it in the comments section of the last post, let me clarify. I DID NOT buy that bra for her! I would NOT buy that. She stole that sucker from Emma's house. And I swear I think she hides it from me! Wait til you see what she put on today! I took another picture to show that she is out of control. JinJin just laughs at me. Like this is some sort of payback. Except I was the Golden Child!!

Ok, well, we've got sunshine to soak up. Daddy and Mary Allison are on their way down here too! So, the partay is about to pick up!

Such a sweet baby girl! Mine is 7 and I still long for the sweet pigtail, cute pajama days. My "baby" has a 18 year old sister, so she also thinks she is a teenager. I feel your pain with the fighting over clothes. She is now refusing to wear bows and insists on just a bobby pin to pull her bangs out of her eyes. I just hate that! Love the beach pics!! Keep them coming and maybe it will hold me over until we go to Destin in a few weeks!!

Holly said...

Gabby looks so precious!! I am always surprised when I see a picture of Ellie and Madi together at how petite Ellie is! You are blessed beyond words! I love when good things happen to good people!

Laughing at your comment about our big MoJoy family....my husband always refers to you as my imaginary friend. Haha. "Oh yeah, your friend you've never met. Riiiight".

Melissa said...

All the cute pigtail posts are making me want a girl and since this baby making factory has been shut down I don't think it's going to happen for me :( Your girls are just too stinkin cute!

SamC said...

Love that baby girl! She is a little doll!

Zhohn said...

Oh yes, that was some sweetness! Love the pjs and of course that barrette!
I can not wait to see Ellie's outfit today and I mean really can not so y'all hurry and comment!! Yay for Daddy and Mary Allison coming. So does that mean the other 'big girl' is going home?

tricia said...

I want to eat that sweet Gabby up! She is so darn precious. You get your comic relief from sweet Ellie and your lovin' from precious Gabby. Now that's win-win! They are such lucky girls!

Gabbi is so sweet and precious. I just love her little pj's and the clip in her hair with her name!! I always used to put piggies in Paige's hair when she was younger- just the cutest thing ever!!! Can't wait to see Ellie's outfit!!

Deb said...

My husband (same as opinion as Holly's) can't understand it either.......but meeting you is on my "bucket list"!

As for Gabbi, the slightly pink, sun kissed skin is almost too much, just want to scoop her up!

I amm with JinJin('course I am closer to her age!), I just laugh at Ellie!

I just love how you LOVE!

Just how you feel so blessed to have these girlies, they are blessed to have you as their mama! What lucky little girls to have such a loving family as their foundation. Glad Daddy is coming - it'll be so nice to have all of you in one place with no work just fun fun fun!

Could eat that Gabbi Lou with a spoon :)

Mary said...

I'm laughing at Holly's comment because I tell my husband not only are you my friend...whom I've never met....I'm going to your house! For scrapbooking, jewelry making, painting. Pick whatever you want because in reality there will be more talking than anything going on. ha ha ha. He thinks I'm insane. I love Ellie's spirit. Reminds me of my daughter. If you think it will get better stop kidding yourself. Mines 16 and oh.my.lord. lets just say she's strong willed....LIKE AN OX. Born 20 minutes after I was induced with no doctor in sight. She's never stopped since that day! Is Staci still on the fishing boat from last year? I believe that's where her blog left off.!

Amy K said...

That IS dripping with sweetness. Bless her heart. Her love and adoration for her mama shines!

Lisa said...

Love reading about your vacation! I know you scrapbook so I wanted to share something with you. I work on staff at a large church in Birmingham and we are discussing what studies to offer in the fall. This is one they are considering: This Is My Story: Creating a Scrapbook Legacy of Faith (if you google it you can get more info) - just thought you might be interested!! I'm one of those "pitiful folks" you described earlier - no one ever leaves comments on my blog :-) Y'all come visit me at

Mo, I would love to just follow you and your girlies around, at home, and take some pictures....and then write a "special" poem for you guys....and frame it in a 16 x 20 frame for you. (I did the poem for Staci and Don, about Jake...just so you know who I am)...I am retiring from City Hall here in Minden, Feb. 28, 2012....maybe then I'll have some time for my true first loves (poetry & photography). Thanks for sharing your life with me!....huggers, BJ

Kathryn said...

Am I nuts or did you take a picture of that sweet thing at the balcony rail last year? She was so little-bitty then?

kendra said...

oh what sweetness. A touch of Heaven on earth for sure. Does it get any sweeter. I can tell you for sure if you are fighting now just look out teenage years, you are in for a treat. I am so glad I have boys :)))

Gabbi looks soooo precious. Nothin'sweeter than a baby girl all dolled up in her cute litttle PJs. I miss having little ones. Relish these moments. They pass all too quickly. I wish I had been as conscious of making the most of every moment as you are. Your sweet babies are so blessed.

Some SERIOUS sweet right there!! She just radiates her love for you. Thanks for all the daily vacation posts--makes me feel like I'm just right there. :) I actually looked up the distance from PCB to Gulf Shores today---I will only be about 3 hours from you as opposed to about 8+ normally....sure would love to meet ya'll while I'm that close! Is that some serious stalking or what? But I DO feel like I know you!

snekcip said...

Holly your comment was funny! My family always says "ohhhh that lady in Louisiana" with that "we gotta ger her meds soon" look!! LOL!!! Mo, I'm hoping to meet you in June for SFJ!!!

Ha! Bet they see then...YOU REALLY EXIST!!!
