Our Easter did not go as planned...not all bad just not as planned. We had planned to get up and have a little Easter here with Taylor and my mom.  (she came up last night to spend the night) 
 The Easter Bunny delivered! 
 Just waking up...
 I loved her response

Then go with Ott, Kristen, and Daisy to Ott's moms house, eat some lunch, have an egg hunt, and let the girls swim. Lets just say that mother nature had other plans! It stormed so bad on the way there with flooding and everything so those plans were scraped. We ate some lunch and just kinda visited for awhile. 

My brother called and wanted to try to see Taylor for Easter so I told him we wouldn't be there long and on the way home we would stop and visit with him and his family.

It had rained enough to flood a few of the roads between the two houses. The water had gone down but it left a lot of debris covering the road. Somewhere along the way I ran over some stuff and my back tire went flat....then we found a bolt in my front tire. BOO! So a call to AAA and an hour and half wait and we were good to go and ready to come home. I will now be spending my day tomorrow getting new tires....BOO! It was still a good day all in all. 

I don't want to forget the real reason we celebrate this holiday....we did actually go to Church last night. I am so thankful HE IS ALIVE!

7 Months!

7 Months seems like such a long time....but it has come so quickly....I love you more and more everyday.

* You weigh 18lbs. and your 26 inches long.
* You sit and play all the time now.  
* Your favorite toy is still your feet.
* You had a rough little bit this month with waking up at 5am again but I think we have figured that out by upping the oz. in your bedtime bottle.
* You put yourself on a schedule taking 2 naps a day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon.
* You go to bed at 8pm now...this works great for mommy!
* EATING- You now take three 8oz bottles a day, eat oatmeal and fruit for breakfast, and Veggies for dinner. This schedule seems to work much better for you than 4 6oz bottles.  
* You drink from a sippy cup now....when someone holds it for (LAZY)
* I think you like hanging out at the ball field. 
* You wear 3-6 Months clothes but still have some 0-3 shirts and dresses that you can wear. Although, those 0-3 are getting You have a few things that are 6-9 months from specific brands but for the most part we are still in 3-6 months. 
* You have two teeth...both bottom ones.  
* You don't crawl but you sure do get around. You scoot and roll everywhere you want to go.
* You have pulled up a couple of times on your toy basket to get different toys out. 
* You said "dadadadada" and "mommmmmmmaaaaaa" but you don't seem to say them often. 
* 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.  (these have only gotten worse)
* You have a 2 hour time limit in the car and then you want for awhile. lol

Tooth #2

I don't have any super cute pictures today....just wanted a reminder that Taylor got her 2nd tooth today. The bottom left one. I hate that she is growing up so fast!

We took Taylor for her first trip to the Nashville Zoo yesterday. It will be the first of many because we are members. It made sense to become members b/c we already knew of twice that were going and it ended up cheaper to have the membership. Which by the way are not expensive at all, for some people (with lots of kids) the membership could be cheaper than one visit. 

This picture is interesting to me...people love it but her facial expression is very different to me...she doesn't make this face often. 
Hiding from the sun.
We got out and played with the must have just been to much. 

We stopped to eat lunch....I have no idea who this face was for...I hope not me and the

New Stroller...

I don't usually do product reviews but this is so worth it!

I have been wanting a new stroller for a very long time but I have to admit it was kinda overwhelming trying to find one. There are hundreds of brands and I have found that you can't really go to the store and look at them most have to be ordered online. After many hours of looking and thinking about what was important to me in a stroller..I FOUND IT!
The biggest selling point for Abiie is the diaper changing table built in to the seat. I have to say it was pretty genius. I used it at the zoo yesterday and it was super fast, easy, and other moms were very impressed.  
Justins favorite thing is the handle because it be adjusted for taller he doesn't have to hunch over push the stroller. 
I however am in love with the shade. It has two settings and completely protects her from the sun and wind and she can still see out. 
I got mine at They ship for free and super fast! (Babies R Us says they carry it in the store but after calling every store in a 50 mile radius I discovered that they don't carry it in the store in this region)  

*by the way...I totally thought for some reason this was British brand but it isn't they are from Texas. I must have been thinking about one of the other 200 stollers I looked
