The holidays just come and go~

I feel like time flies. Thanksgiving was just here and then Christmas came and went, or flew. Then there was the arrival of Taylor and bam there came Valentines Day and there went St. Patrick’s Day.

We had a nice St. Patrick’s Day that consisted of sitting in the DMV for half of the day and then spending the rest of the day at the park. The park is Nathan’s new favorite place to go. He asks to go there everyday, several times a day. Luckily we have a beautiful park about 5 blocks away that we try and walk to almost everyday! When he asks me to go there at night I say well you’ll have to wait until the sun comes up and wouldn’t you know the very next day when he wakes up he says first thing, “Mommy sun up, park now?” He is amazing…that little brain never lets anything go.

I am super excited to start our new family traditions with him now that he is getting older and understanding more. For Easter my parents…or the “Easter bunny” would always hide my Easter basket. So every Easter morning that was the biggest thrill was searching the house to find my basket. I am going to attempt this tradition with Nathan for the first time this year. He’ll probably need help in finding it, but it will be a start! I can’t wait! I am also excited to get my little angel all dressed up for Easter. A girl Easter dress HOW FUN!!! Happy Easter to all!

On the road again---

We went on our first family outing to Grandma and Grandpa Palmer's house. Of course the one day we go out it is pouring rain, but that’s okay because we need it. The day went rather well I must say. Nathan did not get his nap and still behaved good, so that was nice! It was fun to show off the new little girl! On the drive home Mike and I just kept saying how well our first outing went. I don’t know, but I guess we expected the worst.

Taylor will be 4 weeks old this Monday; can you believe it already…one month?!?!?! She is getting stronger with her neck and head. She is sleeping longer hours too, which Mike and I are so grateful for! She is also slowing down on the mustard diapers---thank GOD!!!! My mom and dad have a neighbor who had a little girl 10 days after Taylor and she was only 7 lbs. She looked like a newborn next to Taylor. Taylor looked like she was already 3 months old. The other baby had no hair and side by side you’d think Taylor was 10 weeks older not just 10 days…that made me sad. It’s like we skipped the newborn stage or something. My girl is just healthy…she was also WAY cuter too!!
