Tayler Update :)

I cannot believe it is December already. Seriously-- I know everyone says this, but where in the world has time gone? I feel like I was just pregnant during Christmas Eve last year.... everyone walking up and rubbing my belly, waiting for Tayler to kick. Now, she's here.... and by time Christmas Eve is here, she will be a week from 9 months old.

While it is amazing to see all of her milestones, I can't help but think that life is just going too quickly. My husband and I were talking the other day and he said "Just think... we only have 17 more of what we just had.." and it's hard to think like that. I'm thankful I get to see her every day, but I'm sad that time goes as fast as it does. She doesn't even like cuddling with me anymore. She has to be SUPER tired for that to happen and that often brings a tear to my eye.

Tayler has become little Miss Independent. She wants to do everything on her. She wants to drink her bottle on her own, sleep by herself, try and climb up on to things... It's crazy to see how much she has changed in the past 35 weeks (that's how old she is today!)

She still only has two teeth (on the bottom), but we think the next two are gradually making their way down. We know this because of the lack of sleep we have had the past 4 nights, haha! :) She is crawling everywhere.. and quickly... to where she falls down sometimes, haha! She tries to pull herself up-- on everything. Which is the root of a few of the bumps on her head. Silly goose!

She eats--- everything. While still taking a bottle, she eats a good bit of baby food and big people food. Her favorites? Mango baby food, blueberry baby yogurt, orange juice, and any type of bread. :)

She is just getting more gorgeous every single day. Her hair is getting longer.. (it covers her ears now!!) and she's so tall. She laughs.. screeches.. anything you can imagine. Her favorite TV show is "Yo Gabba Gabba" which we have decided will be her 1st birthday theme :) She is glued to the TV when that is on. It is so cute!! She falls asleep to it too, so it must be comforting to her.

She is such a blessing to our lives. I can't wait to share in more memories with her! :) I just printed off like 7 months worth of pictures (yes, I was behind haha) but it was so nice to relive those moment all over again!!

So there is a little catch up on Tayler! Hope you all have enjoyed :)
