Happy Birthday Gabriela!
Sunday we went to Solon and Andrea's for Gabriela's first b-day party. It was great, Will got lots of attention of course. He loved Alessandra, he watched her a lot and would just smile over and over when she was close to him. She is so gentle and lovable with him. She is just exploding in vocabulary right now and her fine motor skills are very impressive. She made a bead necklace with really small beads, which is pretty good for 2 and a 1/2. Gabriela was walking a lot and can stand up in the middle of the room now, and she took some steps towards her birthday cake with out holding on to anything. A girl will do a lot for chocolate. We gave her the fisher price gumball machine which she was crazy about. She loves to put things in right now so it was perfect. I didn't get many great pictures of her, she looks sad in most of them, so I won't put them up. Will bonded with Uncle Solon last night through opera. For some reason Will was captivated when Solon sang Italian opera to him. We were all amazed at how he smiled and cooed for it. It was very sweet. We came home pretty late so we went right to bed.
