Look Mom I am a Big Girl Now...

Taylor has never liked being in the car...We thought at first that it was because she was afraid of the dark...which she is afraid of the dark but that wasn't her problem in the car. We put a DVD player in the truck to try to make it easier for her...and it did help Mickey Mouse clubhouse fixes everything around here. However, car rides longer than 15 or 20 minutes usually ended in SCREAMING! I had just come to accept that was what it was going to be...

Until a friend of ours found out they were going to be having a little boy. Our car seat and stroller were really a boy set, I had just gotten covers for them. So we decided that since I wanted a new stroller anyway (and I will post about this awesome stroller) that we could give them our set. Taylor hated her car seat anyway and wouldn't let you leave her in it so we had been leaving it in the car anyway. She has been sitting in restaurant high chairs for awhile now and we started just last week letting her ride in the buggy at stores. Although she still falls asleep every time...I am glad I got a cart cover with a pillow. 

So we switched out her car seat. The new one will last until she in a booster so I call it a big girl seat...made me a little bit sad...for all of a day. We put her in for her first ride and HOLY CRAP...we did not hear a peep out of her. she played with her toys and watched her Mickey Mouse. I thought this just can't be real...but I took her grocery shopping the next day and she stayed in the car and watched tv in the garage while I unloaded the car....I didn't know it could be so easy. 

By the way we also moved her seat from the middle to the side of the back seat. I think now she is sitting up higher and can see out the window. Makes for a happy baby and happy mommy!

Friends and a Trip to the Park...

Justins best friend and his family came up for a visit. Patrick, Sarah, and Liam live in Tampa, FL so we haven't seen them since our wedding reception and well that was just to long ago. Liam was 3 months old then....now he a very cute, happy, 20 month old. Just reminds us of what we have to look forward too. 
Some how I managed to not get a single picture of Patrick or Sarah....I don't really know how this happens.

While they were here we went to the park. It was Taylors first trip to the park EVER. Of course at 6 months old you don't really play at the park...unless I were to let her sit and chew on the mulch which she would have done happily...lol She did however get to test out the slide with Daddy....it was hit!

I couldn't not share this picture...I just love it!

6 Months.....

I am finding it very hard to even type this blog. I don't want her to be 6 months old. I don't want her to be half way to her first birthday. 

* You weigh 17lbs. and your still 25 inches long.
* You sit and play all the time now. . 
* Your favorite toy is still your feet.
* Your sleeping so much better. Putting yourself back to sleep when you wake up in the night. We even put you to bed awake and you fall asleep all by yourself. 
* EATING- We added fruit. You love bananas but peaches break your face out.You also love Ella's Kitchen fruit and veggie mixes. 
* You drink from a sippy cup now!  We started this a little late but you will catch up. 
* You are finally getting to experience warm weather.
* You wear 3-6 Months clothes but still have some 0-3 shirts and dresses that you can wear. 
* You got a TOOTH! Bottom left front to be exact. 
* You get up on your hands and knees and rock now. This makes me sad but you just started so maybe I will have a little while to adjust. 
* You talk "your language" all the time. 
* You still LOVE attention!
* You have started throwing what I can only think to call a TEMPER TANTRUM...enjoy it while you are to small to understand b/c me and daddy won't let it go on. 
*Mickey Mouse fixes everything...but you will watch Veggie Tales now
* You don't like to play alone much and defiantly don't want to be in a room alone. (you need a sister) lol
