Alrighty people, it's been about two months since I've posted...but here I am, getting it done in late Nelson style. Things are great here, Taylor is smiling like crazy now and attempting to talk up a storm. Her favorite times of day are by far, first thing in the morning and bath time. We are at the point now where she doesn't bathe until after she poops...it just saves so many problems haha. Andrea and Taylor are in Harlingen today visiting Grandpa Rick and I am at home doing homework and watching football. Here are some recent pics.
Hi Everyone! We JUST got home from our wonderful vacation. We went to dad's lake house for a few days in Pennsylvania and then drove down to mom's in Virginia and had a wonderful time before we headed off to Akron OH to see Chrystel, Rich and their two kids and our last stop was Rockford, IL to see Andrea's grandparents. The trip was wonderful with perfect weather every single step of the way (until the drive home). I'm tired so I'm going to keep this short and I will put up more photos when I get them off of the digital camera.
Hi everyone! Sorry I haven't posted in so long, its been a busy few weeks! Since I came back from Houston, a lot of people have come to town! Shannon, and then Cameron and Meagan came down last weekend and it was great to see all of them. Shannon will be a mom in about 2 months so I loved getting to see her before she becomes too busy to visit for a while! Taylor is growing like a weed and becoming more alert every day. Andrea has left me alone with her twice now and I feel this sense of panic rush over me whenever she walks out the door...and I feel the urge to act like it was "no big deal" whenever she walks back in, even if it did feel like an eternity for her to get back home. The good thing is, I'm getting better at this daddy business....I'm learning how to calm her down and warm up the milk and feed her and most importantly....how to change the diaper FAST before she can poop or pee on me. Anyways here are a few new pictures. I hope everyone is doing great!
Here are a few pictures from Carrie, Moss and Logan's visit and one photo of Taylor. Everything is going great. Taylor has gained about 3 lbs since she was born...she had to go to the Dr. yesterday because she has a case of stuffiness but other than that she's fine.
Well...I need to improve on my blog postings (so says Chrystel hahaha). I do need to hop on here more often, thats for sure. This weekend, Carrie & Moss are in town for a visit with Logan and it's great to see them. I am at the office right now trying to type a paper for school (last one of the semester!) but...I got weak, and decided to do this instead.
Taylor is growing like a little weed, I'm pretty sure she likes her mother better...as she is a warm cuddly food source and I am an awkward bumbling man with no milk...i.e. I'm useless, butr someday she'll realize that I am much cooler.
Taylor is 2 weeks old today! It's pretty amazing how we had a baby, moved and I started a new job all in a short period of time. It all went fairly smooth as well which is shocking. I am about 2 weeks behind on school work but I'm hacking away at it every night after work until about 3am. I should be caught up by Saturday. Andrea looks absolutely amazing for just having a baby...I'm impressed (ow ow!). Anyhow I will keep this one short for now because ...yes, I have homework to do.
Well I suppose this is an easy way for people to stay updated on our growing family! (I borrowed the idea from my cousin Shannon). Taylor was born on the 4th of July at 11:48 pm. She was 7lbs 6oz and 20 inches. The day we were released from the hospital in McAllen, we drove the 2.5 hours to Corpus Christi and spent our first night together in our new house!
At her checkup on Monday she was up to 7 lbs 9 oz. so all is going well.
I will add photos to this and update at least weekly!
