Spring Break in Pontotoc

We had a great visit to see Aunt Ashley, Uncle JT and Ty over their Spring Break!  While it was a short trip, we packed in lots of fun things and had a fantastic time!

We arrived late on Monday evening.  We relaxed and let Taylor and Ty play together.  They were up until 10:30!! Yikes!  The adults watched a movie after putting the babies to bed and I successfully fell asleep after about 10 minutes of the movie, in my usual fashion.  The next morning we had homemade waffles (thanks to JT!), bacon and sausage.  Ashley even made me a fancy mocha, I felt like I was at a coffee shop!

After breakfast and playing for a little bit we put the babies down for a nap.  Shockingly we got them both asleep in the same room without disturbing each other! AMAZING!  I am really not sure how people with twins, etc. do that on a regular basis!

After a nap we spent some time outside and the boys kicked around a ball with the dogs.  Well actually, Shadow played with the ball and Peyton pretty much wandered around.  I don't think she knew what to do with herself in all the open space :)

We then went to a beautiful park just around the corner.  The weather was wonderful and it was Taylor's first trip to the park! She loved the swing.  We just relaxed, pushed Taylor and Ty in the swings, played on the slide and enjoyed some time in a park swing overlooking a beautiful view!
Taylor loved her first swinging experience!
Wee!  This is fun!

After the park we stopped by the local snow cone hut (I guess it's a hut, not sure what to call it!) for a treat before dinner.  We finished the day with mexican after the babies napped again.

It was so nice just to hang out with family and enjoy a beautiful day God gave us.  It really has me excited for Spring and Summer.  We hope for many more days like this one!  Thank you Lord for our family that we love so very much!

Taylor 10 months!

We have hit the double digits!  Ten months old!  Taylor you just get more fun every day!  You are into EVERYTHING!  It is so amazing to see how fast you learn new things at this age.  In about a week and a half you went from crawling all over the place, to being able to sit yourself up without help, to pulling up on everything and now you are starting to cruise around.  We are definitely in "baby proofing" mode!

You love your toys but playing with Peyton's toys and things around the house sure seem to be your mission lately.  You and Peyton are never too far away from each other.  She doesn't seem to mind too much your pets and pokes!  I have found you with Peyton's bone more than once and she always seems to leave her toys close to you so you can quickly grab them!  You also love to gravitate to her food and water bowls.  Luckily Peyton doesn't leave food left in her bowl or I'm sure you would have had a taste of that by now :) 
Peyton and Taylor

Around the house you love playing with doors and the door stoppers.  You pull up a lot on the entertainment centers.  You love coming in the kitchen and playing with your barn and farm animal toy on the fridge. You also love to pull up and play with your activity table!  You are all about giving kisses to people and your favorite things.  Such a sweet girl!  

Giving kisses to your activity table!

Your favorite stuffed animal lately is a Beanie Buddy monkey that your Buddy gave you!  You crawl all the way into your room to your chair to grab it!  I even caught you trying to crawl down the hall with it the other day!

Still no more teeth for you although I keep saying any day your top middle teeth will come in. (However I think I've been saying that for a month now!)  You still are a great sleeper (thank the Lord for that!) and a very happy baby!  You are starting to say some new things too!  You say "thank you!" (more like dou dou!) and "bye bye".

We love the fantastic journey the Lord is taking us on with you!  You are the light of our lives!
