gabe...4...gabe had a big week. he rode a horse for the first time. he rode my parent's mini last summer, but this was different. i have been riding at a friends barn a few days a week. they own a 20 year old mare that is a lesson horse. after i gave two girls a lesson on her, gabe got to cool her down. he rode around (me holding his back walking next to him while someone else led her) the arena and was so ecstatic. after he got off, he said, "mom, i'm a real cowboy now!" he was hesitant to do it, but once he was on he didn't want to stop!!! my heart can't be happier.
gianna...2...she has started to say "Ooohhh Taaayyy" when you ask her do do something. she is currently calling my mom every night and asking her to sing her three bed time songs (jesus loves me; abcs; jingle bells). she gets so excited when nanny says yes. she wasn't interested in riding, but she is finally comfortable around the horses and loves petting them!!
