Friday, April 10, 2009


Just wanted to inform you all that I got a rather disturbing email from an individual with whom I have never met before in person, only had a run-in with her online and this was in 2005, this email states that she regularly visits this blog and my blogs and has downloaded and saved photos of my daughter and regularly follows me around the internet.

So therefore on Monday, April 20th, 2009, this blog will close and there will be another blog set up which will be private. I will only allow those who are "Invited Readers" to view the blog. So if you want to keep up with Taylor and her growing up into a beautiful little lady, then please send your email to me at:

This is only in protection of my daughter, to keep this nut away from her. Also, posts from this blog will be transferred over to the private blog.

I will also feature more photos and videos of the little one over on the other blog.

Photo Shoot Rescheduled

I am going to reschedule the photo session for Taylor until further notice. It is going to be cold, windy and raining on Friday and plus I have an ear ache that is not going to go away before then. When I do get these things, it lasts at least a week or so. Going to be pretty cranky.

Gearing up for Taylor's first Easter. Planning a small family dinner. Was going to be a bit larger, but people forgot it was Easter or it came really quick. Anywho, Taylor is going to have a good time.

She is just advancing so much. Today I had her facing East and towards the end of the bed and within 5 minutes she had turned West and was on the other end of the bed with us. She was chewing on my pants. She is at that point now where she is watching anyone close to her eat and wants whatever it is. So far today in addition to her regular feedings (just formula and cereal, nothing else) she has eaten some crescent roll she was watching me eat and some apple pie. I also gave her a bit of my Oatmeal from this morning. She actually has Oatmeal cereal, so I didn't see a problem giving it to her. She ate whatever I gave her. She had half an Oreo cookie the other day. She was on the bed and was watching S eat one and I said "Give her one and lets see what she does!" S opened one and gave it to her and at first she laid on it. Next thing we know she has a hand full of cream and the hand went in her mouth and she was just sucking on it. Then she had some cookie in her mouth. Later on D gave her the other half of the cookie thing (brown part of Oreo) and was letting her suck on it and she had no problems with it. I don't know if this is a good thing or bad thing!! :-)

Have to go, pretty tired. Haven't done a stitch of work all week. Just running ragged. Take care

Outfit Found

I have found the outfit that Taylor is going to wear for her photos this Friday. I had it all along and for some reason. She's going to look cute in it. I actually have 2 different outfits for her. My mother said that we need to get her a Easter dress to take the photos in. I don't know about all of that, but we will see.

Not much to report right now. Will probably post later.

Juice Yes...Sweet Potatoes No!!

I purchased the little one some additional food items the other day and I've been introducing them to her. I gave her some juice and she loved it. So far she has had two bottles of the juice and she absolutely loves it. She didn't make that funny face she normally does when she tries something new. I gave her squash again the other day and she took that first spoonful and made the face, then went ahead and ate the entire container of squash. So yesterday, I figure that it was time to move on to another food item. I got bold and attempted to do Sweet Potatoes and she was not having it. She took that first spoon and made that face that she normally does and I thought it was so funny. So I gave her some more spoons and she started to push her tongue out like "I'm so not eating this junk. What is this?". Then she sneezed and sweet potatoes went all over the place....her hair, her face, her clothes, me, the bed and the wall behind me!! LOL!!! I should have taken a picture of that. Everytime I tried to give her a spoon of that stuff, she would push it out and would not eat it. So sweet potatoes are out.

I figured they would be, because I cannot stand sweet potatoes. I ate sweet potatoe pie once about 16 years ago and got violently ill!! You name it, I was doing it. Now, I have seen some good looking pies in the time since I got sick, but I am not going anywhere near those things. I refuse to. Someone will give me a pie for Thanksgiving, Christmas or Easter and it will sit in the fridge for months!!

Anywho, today is Taylor's first Wrestlemania. That's the one wrestling program that everyone can sit and watch together and not fuss over changing the channel.

Her first photo session is this Friday. I made the appointment a few weeks ago and will take her in this Friday. I'm still trying to figure out what she is going to wear.

Tooth Is Here!!!

When I last posted, I stated that Taylor's 1st tooth was a few days away from appearing. Well last night, I checked her mouth and she has her first tooth already. At 5 months, 8 days old she got her very first tooth. I knew that she was drooling more than normal the last few days and it was only a matter of days before it popped through the gum. She has already bitten me a few times.

I brought her some juice, peas, green beans, sweet potatoes, carrots and something else today while at the grocery store. I'll introduce one at a time every 3 days to see how she handles each item. My bet is she'll hate the carrots. But we shall see. Only about another week to go before her photos. I'm excited. I want to see what she looks like in photos from a professional view.

Virus & Teeth

I have been away for a few days due to a very nasty computer virus that would not let me get beyond the "Welcome" screen forWindows XP. Apparently I got the virus on the 18th of March. I don't know what I was doing that day or who else was on the computer that day.

Anywho, little Miss Taylor is doing fine. She is getting so much bigger and will have a doc visit very shortly, so we will be able to see if she is gaining weight. She seems so light to me, but maybe that is because I pick her up and hold her all of the time.

She loves to eat cereal, pears, apples and even squash. The first spoonful makes her get that "Ewww" face, but after that, she's eating like a pro. Every other feeding is switched between cereal and some other food. Right now, she is due for either pears or squash at her 1pm feeding.

And guess what? She has teeth!! Okay, one is still a few weeks off from appearing and the other one is about a few days away. It is sitting right below the gum and is just waiting to pop out. She has been drooling so much lately and has been chewing on her little fingers to no end.

She also knows how to scoot wherever she is laying and also knows how to flip over onto her back and back over to her stomach. She also has the legs of a Radio City Rockette!!! I've been saying that ever since she started moving in my stomach. But now, she just spends minutes upon minutes just kicking those little legs. It tickles her when she does it because when I see it, I just start saying "And kick, and kick...1, 2, 3". She loves that and starts laughing. Real laughing, not baby giggling, but outright laughing.

Her first photo session is coming shortly. On the 10th. Excited about that. Looking for an outfit for that now.

She can also sit up a bit, but only if she's leaning forward to the point where her stomach is on her legs. She will sit like that for a minute and then fall over.

I have a few pics to share, but have to get them off the camera and onto the computer. I have no idea when I'll do that, but it will be shortly.

Very Busy & Okay..1 Pic

I have been very busy personally and work wise and haven't posted here since yesterday. Taylor is looking so cute today. She has two little ponytails in her head today. Her big brother D put them in for her, they totally do not go with her outfit at all. She has on a pink and white striped sleeper and the ponytail holders in her hair red and white (one is red and one is white). I'm sad to say, but she doesn't have that much hair!!! LOL!!! When I found out I was having another girl, I just knew she was going to be born with a lot of hair. People are telling me that it's short for now, but when she gets older that it is going to grow. Let's keep our fingers crossed that it does.

Taylor is feeling better today, seems to be a coming and going sort of thing. She was really better the next day, I can't remember when she last sneezed and she has no runny nose. She is just a bit cranky and chewing on her fingers on the left side of her mouth, so I am thinking a tooth is going to crack through her gums sometime soon.

She did the cutest thing today, we got Mickey D's for lunch today...I know...if you read my weight loss blog, this was so against everything. But I was sitting on the bed and had her propped up on a pillow and I just put a french fry on her pillow since she was watching me. At first, she just looked at it. But a couple of minutes later, she did the cutest thing. Me and her 2 older siblings were in the room all talking and Taylor is looking at the tv, but her left hand is going towards the fry and she is slowly pulling it towards her and she puts it right in her mouth. All this time she is still staring at the tv, she sucked on the fry for a minute. It was just too cute!!

Well as promised, here is one recent pic of Taylor. I know I said I would not put one here, but a lot of the visitors do not have Myspace or Facebook and one pic isn't going to do any damage.

She was so happy in this pic, I thought I would never get her to smile for the camera, but she was being silly baby that day I took this.
