Day 4 and 5 of the Photo Challenge!

I am a few days behind on the January Photo Challenge, so I thought I'd take a second to update! :) 
Day 4 of the challenge was 'View From Here.'

The view after we got home from the grocery store last night was our matching shoes! :) We went grocery shopping and boy was I beat when we got home, haha! You wouldn't think being almost 23 weeks pregnant that you'd be that worn out, but man, I was. My legs hurt, my feet hurt. It was tiring, haha! We still had fun though :) And when we got home, we all cuddled in bed and watched 'National Security.' Then Tayler and I both crashed while Daddy stayed up and watched a movie he's been really wanting to see... 'Magic Mike.' HAHA! Totally kidding! He watched 'Warrior'-- it's some movie on Netflix he has been wanting to see :) 
Day 5 of the photo challenge was 'Movement.' 

Tayler LOVES playing with this toy! She loves moving the circles up and down. Sometimes she'll make me roll the …

Day 2 and Day 3- January Photo Challenge

Today will be Day 2 and Day 3 of the January Photo Challenge!
Day 2 of the photo challenge was: Something New

We finally have Netflix in our bedroom! Whooohoo! :) Now we can be lazy.... and watch our TV shows, haha! We are currently watching all of the episodes of 'Rules of Engagement.' We just finished 'Bones.' We've also watched 'How I Met Your Mother,' 'Lie to Me,' 'Vampire Diaries,' and 'The Office.'
Are there any other shows on Netflix that you would recommend?? We are always looking for something new and good to watch!
Day 3 of the photo challenge is: Heart

That's my heart right there. That's my 21-month old. My whole world. I love her more than anything! She is the reason why I do what I do. She is the reason that I work so hard. I want the absolute best for her. I want to be such a good example for her. I want to make her smile, make her laugh, be her friend, and be her mother. I am amazed every day at how my love fo…

22 Weeks Pregnant!

We are 22 WEEKS PREGNANT today! :) That's 5 1/2 months! Whoohoo!! :) I am so excited to be getting SO close to meeting our sweet baby girl!
According to my 'What to Expect' App, baby girl is about the size of a Papaya (which is about 8 inches and 1.2 pounds.) I believe it because we can not only feel her now.. but we can see her kicking! They are very subtle kicks. I keep trying to video tape it, but you still aren't able to really see them on camera. I can see it, but I think that's because I'm looking for it, haha! My mom got to feel her kicking again last night and we finally figured out it was hiccups because it was constant and rhythmic. First time I've felt her have the hiccups! Tayler had them constantly, so I have a feeling Quinn is going to be the same way, haha!
Speaking of that, I don't know if you all read my blog or my Facebook this week, but we have changed the baby's name. If you remember correctly, we had picked Sawyer Kellylynn as …

Today: January 1st [Day 1]

The photo challenge for January 1st, 2013 was- TODAY. Today, we spent a lot of time together as family. Papaw and Gigi spent the night with us last night and we all hung out together until about 1:00PM. We had sausage gravy and biscuits with yummy bacon! My mom helped me cook... We had fun just chit chatting and smelling the goodness! We also spent time playing one of Tayler's favorite games: the number puzzle. My mom and dad bought us a kit called 'Teach my Toddler' for Christmas and it has tons of games, flash cards, books, etc. This week we have been working on numbers. She will literally sit there and play this game with me for about 15-20 minutes. I love it :) plus this picture has her adorable baby feet in it too! Win win ;) Hope you all had a happy new year!

January Photo Challenge-- Back to Blogging Regularly

January 2013, I am going to start blogging regularly again! I have been updating each week with pregnancy updates, but I'd love to get back to documenting life again. I miss being able to go back and see what we were doing on a certain date in 2011. So, I am going to try this again in 2013. I know it will probably be difficult, especially when I have Quinn, but I am going to try my hardest! :)
I figured I would go along with 'Fat Mum Slim's' January Photo Challenge to help me out with this! I'm going to take one photo a day and share it with you along with why I took the picture and some information about my day. It might be interesting to all of you You probably won't be interested in reading it LOL but I am excited to get back to having documentation for myself! Now-- hopefully blogger never dies because I've got a lot of memories stored in here. Since December 1st, 2009 no less! Crazy, right??
So, here's the January Photo Challenge:

I'll still d…

Cheers to 2012!

Crazy that we only have about 36 hours left of it, isn't it?
I feel like it just began.
So much has happened during this year! We have had our struggles and our triumphs.. our beautiful moments and our pains. But through it all, in 2012, we stuck together. We remained a family. 
I thought I'd take a moment to reminisce about this past year with all of you. It's been an AMAZING ride. 
We rang in New Years 2012 with our friends.

Tayler spent the evening with my parents so we had a get-together at our house. This is a picture of the girls hanging out :) From left to right it's: Me, Arena, Lakin, and Carrie. We had so much fun that night and everyone spent the night! It was a great way to ring in the new year! :)
January not only rings in the new year... but it also brings my mom's birthday! We celebrated her birthday at my parent's house this year! We all spent the night and we had such a fun time. I wanted to reminisce about this because of how adorable Ta…
