Busy Bee

Well the weeks have just flown by since I updated last, and so much has been going on. Since going back to work, it is hard to keep up with everything. So with Taylor sleeping and Jason at work, I've got a few minutes finally! :)

A week and a half ago, Taylor's Grandma Fair (Jason's mom) was in town visiting. Taylor had lots of fun getting to know her, and on Saturday morning got to go to breakfast with both his Grandma and Nana (my mom). He is one lucky little boy!

Taylor has also been doing lots of boating recently. He loves being out on the water, just like his mom and dad. He usually just falls asleep to the rocking and the sound of the engine, but occasionally he will stay awake and just be full of smiles. Jason loves having him out there, and can't wait till he can teach Taylor to wake board. Speaking of Jason, I'd like to give a shout out to him for landing a 180 from one side of the wake to the other. All the practice this summer has made perfect! Taylor and I are very proud.

Taylor and I had a fun day last Thursday when we went to the Mom and Me day at the movies. The Lincoln Square movie theater has movie times for moms to bring their babies, so you don't have to worry if they cry. The seats were so nice (leather, and they rocked too), and they take your order and deliver your popcorn and soda right to your seat. We went with your friend Jacqui and her little guy Hayden (our first play date!). Hairspray was playing, which was fun because it was lots of music. Taylor ate, then fell asleep the rest of the movie. We plan to bring daddy next time to share in the fun.

Yesterday, Taylor got to go to his first birthday party for our new little friend Andrew from church. He was turning 1 and had a fabulous party at Red Robin. Taylor slept through part of it, but woke up in time to socialize a bit.

Jason and I are excited to be starting in a new home group with friends from church. It is going to be a new parents group, so it will be fun to share the joys and struggles of parenthood with people who may be going through the same things. It will also be nice to spend time praying for each other and doing a bible study.

Taylor is just a week shy of 2 months old, and he just gets more alert and smiley every day. Each day is just so fun with him, whether we're out on a walk, hanging out with friends, giving him a bath, or having family snuggle time in our bed in the morning. Now that I'm working, I just treasure every second I have with him, even the 2 am feeding. I love that he recognizes Jason and I, and after being held by someone else just needs his mommy or daddy. Every day I'm wondering what new thing he is going to do, and grab the camera to try and capture the moment when it happens. Parenthood is so wonderful. I would highly recommend it to anyone. :) Here's just a few more pictures of our little man, who is looking more and more like his dad every day.
