Tayler's First Easter

Jesus, You know just how far the east is from the west. I don't have to see the man I've been come rising up in me again. In the arms of Your mercy I find rest, 'cause You know just how far the east is from the west..... from one scarred hand to the other...
Happy Easter everyone! I know, I'm a day late, but yesterday was a tad bit busy (although it was indeed relaxing as well!) So, I'm posting our Easter update now and just you wait... wait til you see the cute little lady I had on my hands yesterday! :)
We got up early, Tayler ate and started taking her early morning nap, and I got started doing things. I told Ethan.... you know you're an adult when you can't just get up, get dressed, and leave the house in the mornings, haha! I got up, sterilized her bottles, washed dishes, packed her diaper bag, got her Easter outfit out, took a shower, put cheesy potatoes in the crock pot, got dressed, fixed my hair, bathed Tayler, dressed her, fed her again before leaving, packed up the crock pot... Yes, it was kind of hectic, but we did it  haha! :) (The cheesy potatoes I'm talking about... you can find that recipe HERE. They are yummy!)
And here's our pretty little lady in her Easter outfit on her very first Easter!

And guess what? This momma got a SMILE from her for the camera! The very first one (that wasn't when she was sleeping and the angels were talking to her ;))

And our sweet Tayler was born on my Aunt Kelly's 49th birthday! So, OF COURSE, the birthday girls got their picture taken yesterday. Tayler was completely oblivious (the only time she woke up was when she needed to eat, haha!!) but here is a picture of her and her Great Aunt Kelly!

Tayler also got 2 Easter baskets yesterday... and nope, neither one was from us. Yes, I felt like a wretched parent, but I had no idea what you did for a newborn? Well, I found out yesterday, haha....
Here's her Easter baskets from her Aunt Jennifer and my parents. (Apparently you get new borns clothes and books! Now I know for future reference ;))

We took a picture yesterday of 4 generations too :) In the picture is my paternal grandma, my daddy, me, and Tayler-Bug! Grandma said,  "Don't get my face in the picture..." (we nodded and said, yeah okay Grandma) haha! Yes, her face is in the picture. (She also told us we weren't allowed to put it in the paper... we'll see how well we follow those rules *wink wink*)

And let me tell you a story about this picture:

My cousin Leeann was holding Tayler and she was standing next to the chair where my dad was sitting. Well, my dad had been patiently waiting to hold Tayler and was finally getting the chance. Leeann said she was going to pass Tayler over to him, so I turned my head and continued on with the women's discussion we were having. All of a sudden, I heard "OH MY GOSH" and looked over and all I saw out of my peripheral vision was blue (what Tayler was wearing) and a baby falling! I screamed, Makala screamed, and then I started bawling. My brother had that DUMB baby and dropped it on the floor.. acting like he had dropped Tayler... I nearly came un-glued. I laughed... through the tears. I had never been so scared. What a butthead right? I know, you can all say it!! haha!!

We had a wonderful Easter! So glad to finally be spending a holiday WITH Tayler on the outside of my belly, hehe! :) Hope you all had a great day too!
