Baby Steps

About 2 weeks ago Taylor took her first steps! I've had trouble uploading this video until now, so I need to preface with a few things. First off, earlier in the day I could get Taylor to take, 1, maybe 2 steps. When Paul got home I told him to video her and it seems that as soon as we turned the camera on, so did she! Take a look... it's soooooo cute!

Taylor is still taking a few steps here and there but prefers crawling. I know it's just a matter of time before those little legs start running..... and I'll be right behind..... chasing her!

Black Eyes, Bruises, & Scratches

Poor Taylor has taken a beating lately! First she threw her face into the table at a friends house and gave herself a black eye!

Totally her fault, right?!?

 Well the next one is totally my fault! We were headed out for a walk and I put Max's leash on the handle bar to Taylor's stroller so I could go press the button to close the garage. I hadn't strapped Taylor in yet, and I thought I had both brakes on (but only one was on), I turned around just in time to see Max pull hard and the stroller fall over! I was running but there was no way I was going to reach her. She hit her head on the concrete and cried for 5 minutes! The bump showed up right away but began to fade by the next... thank goodness!

I didn't notice at the time, but she also scraped her belly as well. Daddy found it once he got home from work.

I'm such a bad mommy! Taylor recovered quickly from the whole ordeal and we took her for ice cream to tell her how sorry I was!

This bite was a little too cold!

10 Months

Another month has gone by faster than the blink of an eye and Taylor is growing more and more every minute. She now bangs her head on the kitchen table because she is so tall, eats fallen food off her high chair, stands for long periods without holding on, and is in constant pain from teething! She loves her bunny blanket and must have it to fall asleep. If food tastes sweet, she likes it. She screams for more yogurt and cries hysterically when it's all gone. She loves daddy, bites mommy, recently gave herself a black eye and finds joy in playing with empty water bottles. Feeding Max is very entertaining, diaper changes can unleash a tantrum, yo gabba gabba gets a smile every time, and those big blues keep melting my heart.
Another month has gone by and each day I love her more.
Happy 10 months Taylor!!!
