Friends & Family

We are so blessed to be surrounded by lots of family and have so many great friends.  We’ve had lots of visitors over past 3 weeks.  Taylor has got to meet so many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends!


Here’s Leah, Taylor, Avery, and Brooks (who’s 4 weeks older than Tay) having a grand old time!  Taylor has a bunch of little friends already and a few more on the way!

6Taylor is so fortunate to be able to grow up with her great grandparents.  Here she is with her Great Grandma, Mimi.

It’s exhausting being 3 weeks old!

It’s been an exhausting 3 weeks for Mommy & Daddy too, but we wouldn’t trade it for the world.

This is just some of the visitors we’ve had lately.  I need to be better about taking pictures of everyone with her.  Taylor is sure one LOVED little girl!signature

  6. Hello and Congrats on your beautiful little bundle. You don't know me, I stumbled across your blog and like to "stop in" every so often and see how you are. I am dying to know (okay, that may be a bit of an exaggeration) where you got Taylor's little red and white striped outfit... I think I need (okay again... slight exaggeration) to get one for my little lady. Enjoy your time off .. and the "mom brain" does improve slightly with time!

  7. Hi Angela,

    Taylor's outfit was actually a hand-me-down, so I'm not sure how old it is, but it's from Baby Gap. :)


  8. She is one loved little girl, and we love you too!! It's been a pleasure spending so much time with you all!!

  9. That last pic of her is so cute!

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
