6 Months!!!

Our little Taylor is 6 months old! I can't believe how fast she is growing up. She is such a joy to have in our family. She is always smiling and laughing. She makes our home a happier place. She is mommies little buddy. Jake and I just got back from a cruise and we missed our kids so much. It was a great vacation, but I am so glad to be with my Taylor and Cameron again!!!

Taylor is now 17 lbs (70%) and 26.5 in long (70%)!! Her head is 17.5 in (94%)

I am a little behind on posts like always. We recently went down to St. George for my sister Stephanie's Wedding. It was wonderful and we had a blast. Here is a picture I found that I just had to post. Cameron and his cousin Bradley hugging.

Taylor's Baby Blessing

Taylor's Baby Blessing was back in December, but I thought I would post some pictures from that wonderful day. Jake gave such a special blessing. We are so glad to have Taylor in our family.

We didn't get Cameron in any of the pictures. He was having too much fun playing. Opps

I love this picture because of Tracie in the background

Our sweet little Taylor was in the hospital for 5 days recently. She is home now safe and sound, but she gave us a bit of a scare. We are very blessed to have so many friends who prayed for her. Here is her story. She was not eating and seemed pretty sick before we left for my sister Stephanie's wedding/family vacation, but she seemed to do better right before it was time to go. She seemed okay the entire time we were on vacation. However the Saturday we drove back home she had a bad fever, was vomiting and was just miserable. She stopped eating and just got worse and worse by Sunday, with her fever getting up to 106. Jake took her into the ER and they did a bunch of tests on her to find out what she had. Turns out she had Human metapneumovirus (hMPV). It causes lower and upper respiratory tract infections in people of all ages. Like RSV, it is seasonal. It is second to RSV for causing respiratory illnesses like pneumonia. Respiratory illnesses most often occur in young children or older adults. She developed a really bad case of bronchiolitis. Their is no treatment for this virus, but they did put her on oxygen, and IV fluids, and i think a few other things. I never got to see her till she was getting better, because I was sick myself. She was such a trooper and is doing great now. She is eating great and back to her happy self. Smiles for everyone!!!

family pictures

Cameron Looks a little weird in this one also :) The photographer kept making us do our head weird.

We just got family pictures taken. We had a coupon for an amazing deal at this place which is usually really expensive. Jake and I look kind of weird, but the kids look good...that's all that matters. Try again in a few years to get us all looking good.

Cameron loves holding Taylor! You can tell how much they love each other. He kisses her non-stop and talks to her in a sweet voice. She smiles whenever he does!!!

I don't have his head, but it was big!

Taylor is not as long as Cameron has been so far :) We shall see how she grows! She has lots of cute rolls though. The best cheeks also.
I can't believe Taylor is 2 months old! She is such a miracle in our lives. We love her so much. She loves people and being where the action is. She gets sad when she is alone. She still spits up but it doesn't seem to bother her anymore and it is very little :) She sleeps great now. She has lots of gas....i have to burp her tons. She is just the best!!!!!

We had a great thanksgiving with Jake's family; especially since we found out what was wrong with Taylor. Cameron is growing like a weed still. Taylor is growing also and is the sweetest.

OUR FAMILY!!! Yes...the fish is pretty much a part of the family. Cameron loves that thing.

Taylor fell asleep in this cute

Taylor tries to suck her hands and fingers....she'll figure it out one day
