My Girls

WOW! How do the moms with 3+ kids do it? They must be stronger than me. Yes, it's been an adjustment having Talor home and taking care of two kids under 1 year. I never knew I could live off of so little sleep. Talor is awake from 8pm to 7am and Hayden is awake from 7am to 8pm. It's a zoo around here, but I would not trade it for anything.
As we get closer to Hayden's 1st birthday (Nov. 22) I have been getting more emotional about the fact the my baby is growing up. Oh, she started to crawl the day we brought Talor home from the hospital. That was a surprise;-)
Talor is doing well and weighs 5 lbs. and 12 oz. She loves to cuddle and cat nap in our arms. However, she is still unable to have a bowel movement on her own. This does cause her discomfort most of the time.


Ryan took Hayden on a date to Lighthouse Outlet Mall a few days ago and got her the shoes in this picture.

Michelle H. took these during the joint service a Crosspoint. Thanks Michelle!

I take my hat off to you, 2 under the age of 1 sounds quite interesting. I have been told as they get older they become such good friends. I can see that with my 2 already!!!

I am so glad to hear Taylor is home!

You are doing great!! We all think someone else has an easier time, but guess what the grass is no greener. We all get up every morning wondering how we will make it and we go to bed at night thanking God that his grace was sufficient for today!! I am praying for you guys!

I'm tired with you Joy... but 16 months apart is NOT eight months apart. :) What a great story that will be one day!!

I'm bringing you a meal on Wednesday... what kind of food do you want? (Mexican, Italian, American... ??)

Glad you liked the picture :)
