5 Months!

Miss Taylor is 5 months old already!  This really does go SO fast!   Every month that goes by she gets to be more and more fun!


These days Taylor enjoys playing in her excersaucer, sitting up in her Bumbo, and watching Baby Einstein.  Her favorite thing to play with are her feet.  She is the sweetest, easiest baby and she charms everyone she meets.  She is all giggles and smiles!

Taylor is mostly wearing 6 month clothes and size 2 diapers (although they are getting small).  She’s about 15 lbs. and counting.  She is still eating just formula, but by the end of this month we’ll start her on some cereal and baby foods. 

I swear she is starting to wave hello already!  We practice waving every time she comes and goes from school and recently I started noticing that she extends her arm out to wave when we meet people.  How cute is that?!?


Our mini photo shoot this morning didn’t go quite as smoothly as the month’s past.  Now that she’s drooling everywhere, her month sticker got all wet and she started pulling chucks of it off and trying to eat it.  We had to move quickly this morning before it became a disaster.  It was still fun though! :)

  2. She is absolutely beautiful!!!! SOOO cute! :)

  3. she is surely growing and quick! so pretty Lauren!

    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.
