our sweetheart

I didn't know babies slept so much!!! When I hear that people had to wake their babies to feed them, I couldn't comprehend it! Now I understand! She is soooo easy.... I think I got the sweetheart that I was secretly praying for.

Welcome Keira!

I got to hold her a lot longer than Ryan... and my hands/arms weren't tied down this time, so I actually got to hold/touch her

She is my little cuddly bug, the complete opposite of Ryan!
Bright eyed and bushy tailed! (with Nana, Ryan's mom)
I love the looks that babies make :)
I love that my husband is totally and completely involved in raising our children.

The new Taylor Family.
Boogie, Dad, Keira and Mom

Keira Rae Taylor

7lb 15 oz 18 3/4 in.

soooo content

I know this doesn't show her beautiful face. And don't be alarmed, her neck is not twisting backwards.... her daddy put her outfit on backwards. As he was putting it on her earlier that morning, he was complaining about how difficult it was to get on. Hours later Keira's Aunt Alixe was holding her and I noticed the cute bow and label on her back that say's 'sweetheart'. Silly dad.

Believe it or not, I am in a really good mood here. I took my first shower.... I'm not sure how long it was, but let's just say for a while there I forgot that we are having a water shortage.
Not my most flattering picture, but hey, it could be worse, right?

More pics to come....

last one

This may be the last time I get to hold him for awhile.... this has made me quite sad for a few weeks knowing that it will be hard to pick him up or have him sit in my lap.
My last belly shots.

All Ready Now

I made this ribbon board to hold all of Keira's hair clips, hair bands, hair stuff. I can't wait to start making her the cute hair stuff and see her in them! Only two days to go, so this will be my last post until we come home from the hospital!

The best I could do

Saturday morning we made a quick trip to the Chic Fil A egg hunt and lil' Ryan and his dad got a few eggs, quickly got in line to redeem their prizes and then we were off to Fair Oaks. We were a little late so I was parking the car while the guys did their thing... result: no pictures of the event.
However, these are best of the pics taken at the Ruggle/Cadle egg hunt in Fair Oaks.
It was super fun and there were lots of great treats to be found. My favorite part about the Ruggles egg hunt is that you can find eggs with tickets in them and then go pick out your own prize. Boogie was so sweet to share a ticket with me... I picked the bag of Haribo gummie bears, one of my most favorite candies of all time.
I'm really curious to know what is on Ryan's dome in this picture.. his facial and hand expressions are so cute and funny to me. Anyway, this picture was taken in Ryan's parents backyard and again, it was another fun egg hunt!
The family picture taken in front of Ryan's parents house.
38 weeks preggo... only 6 days to go!!!

the latest project for Keira's room

This is what I started with....

And this is the final project. It was very in expensive and surprisingly easy and fast to do!

Fun stuff

Ryan enjoying our homemade strawberry julius.
He is saying "mmmm".
His first time ever saying 'cheese'. Yay, this is like a dream come true for me! I love taking pictures and for him to sit there, smile and say cheese... well I couldn't ask for more!
Ryan's first and very own cup of Big Spoon. He dove right in and thoroughly enjoyed his chocolate ice cream and gummie worm.
I recently moved the bassinet out of storage and into my room. Ryan now has a new favorite place to hang out.... in the storage basket underneath. I love these quiet, slow moving moments when I don't have to worry about what he is getting into or what he is climbing on!
