Mindless Mommy Babble

I feel like ever since I’ve had Taylor, all I want to do is write about her.  She’s so much fun and such a joy that I just want to share it with you all!

Look at how I found her napping at school the other day?


That just made my heart melt. 

Thank goodness for camera phones!  I don’t ever have to miss a moment as long as my phone is within reach. 

My baby wears jeans now!  Isn’t that the cutest thing ever? 

Was that a big deal to you – the first time your babies wore jeans?  It is to me for some reason.  I am just enjoying and soaking up every little minute I can get with Taylor.  She’s so much fun!


Taylor wore her first size 6 month outfit today!  I thought for sure it would be too big on her, but I tried it on anyway, and it fit!  The pants are still a little long, so I rolled the waist, but overall, it fit great.  I can’t wait to take her in for her 4 month appointment in a few weeks to see how she’s measuring up.  She sure is getting some chunks!

I think we are getting ready to retire her swaddlers now.  They are almost too small on her, so I tried putting her in a sleep sack last night instead.  It seemed to work okay, she’s just still getting used to controlling those wild arms.  It saddens me that our swaddling days are over, but seeing her in a sleep sack is just as sweet too…




From now on, if anything is excellent and if anything is admirable, focus your thoughts on these things: all that is true, all that is holy, all that is just, all that is pure, all that is lovely, and all that is worthy of praise. (Philippians 4:8)

Isn’t that verse encouraging?  A nice reminder to focus your thoughts on the good things in your life.  There is so much good in all our lives.



  1. Sweet pictures! I think baby jeans are just ridiculously cute! :)

  2. Adorable! Taylor has gotten so big and so darn cute as she gets older. Glad to see that all is well in your neck of woods. :) Thank you for sharing such sweet photos. Til next time,

  3. We have those swaddle blankets them! That is what I buy all my friends for shower gifts now because they're so great.

    Taylor is the cutest and is getting so big. Time flies by so fast, doesn't it? Camryn will be 2 months tomorrow. Can't believe it!

  4. I love the sleep sacks, but I have friends who transitioned their babies to them by zipping their arms in - that way they have slightly more control of their limbs but aren't flailing around.

  5. they have sleep sacks where the top part swaddles still - like this:

    LOVE LOVE LOVE the jeans!!!

  6. Jeans ARE pretty awesome, and very flexible! Wear them with anything!

  7. My on my she sure is growing! Such a pretty girl!

    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.
