San Antonio Trip

We just got back from 4 days of visiting my brother and his family. They just had a little boy 2 months ago, so we finally got to meet him.

This was Taylor's first time to fly. She did pretty good, but refused to sleep. Here we are getting ready to take off.


We went to the neighborhood pool the first day we were there. Addie (Tay's cousin) was helping to feed her. Such a big help :)


Something must have been funny.


The girls had matching outfits, so of course we put them in them for church. This was the best picture we could get, but I think it is pretty cute!


Addie liked to read to Taylor.


Here is all 7 of us. We had strict orders to get a picture with all of us. So here it is (Mom).


Addie had a little kitchen in her room and Tay had a good time playing with it. Maybe a Christmas present?


We did not manage to get many pictures with Taylor and her new cousin Ian. Here is one of the few. I guess she is going to have to get used to having a little one around :)


We went to the Alamo while we were there. Apparently this is the picture that we "had to get" of us in front of the Alamo.






On our way back to the car from the Alamo, the girls held hands the entire time. It was so cute.

They had quite the time on the recliner.

This is the closest Taylor has come to walking. I am hoping this toy will speed things up. Maybe by 1 1/2 she will have taken her first solo steps :)

New pictures...finally!!!

Unfortunately, we just have not taken many pictures lately. Hence why I have not updated the blog in forever. I got together what I could since I knew it would be nice for an update :)

We went to a little girl's 1st birthday party the other day and Taylor had a blast. There was a playground there so we got some shots of Tay.


She loved this thing.




There was a HUGE lamb that someone gave to the birthday girl. Taylor had her eye on it the entire time and when we finally let her hold it, she just cuddled with it.


For those of you who know Tay, her feet are tiny. I bought these size 2 shoes last year (yes, size 2's are 3-6 months and Taylor is 14 months). Anyways, they finally fit her!!! She looks so cute in them, but she is quite awkward trying to do anything in them. We have fun watching though.




Reading a new ABC book.


We went to Ohio a few weeks ago and Mark's parents took us out on their pontoon boat. Taylor loved it (despite her facial expression here).


We docked the boat on a "beach" that was mainly mud. Of course Taylor was covered by the time we left. She even tried to eat it.




Just a cute shot


We stick a pool in our backyard and call it a "Redneck Pool Party" Hey, it entertains Taylor and gives us something to pass by the afternoon.
