“Good” Friday


This Good Friday started very early for me… and my sweet little alarm clock Taylor decided to get up two hours early!  Up and at ‘em!  We got bottles ready for the day, made some coffee, and turned on the tv while we enjoyed our beverages.  I was up and feeling spunky, so I put on a pot of carrots to boil since Taylor was getting low on her veggies.  Since Tay woke up so darn early, she napped at 7:30 and I got to do some work.  We are going to play hooky today, but since she’s going to nap for awhile, its the perfect time for me to knock out a bunch of emails and such. 

Aren’t sleeping babies the absolute cutest?!


The neighbor’s horses came by for a visit this morning, so we fed them some apples and carrots.  It’s so peaceful waking up to the sight of beautiful horses among the misty fog outside.

Today is all about prepping for the fun Easter weekend.  I’ve got Taylor’s outfit all laid out and ready for church!  I looked all over for the perfect outfit for her – Baby Gap, Carters, etc… and ended up finding this at Tar-jay!  Gotta love Target!

Half the time I don’t even know what I am going to wear anymore since I am more concerned with prepping for Taylor all the time.  I better give it some thought….

Speaking of prepping for Taylor; her Easter basket it all ready too!  I can’t wait to see her dig into it. 


Taylor had a lunch/play date today with her girlfriend, Sophie.  After her nap, she was well rested and ready to play!  Sophie is 4 months old now, and it’s so cute watching the two of them play and interact.  Taylor is so into babies these days.  She wants to touch them and kiss them right in the face!

Later in the day, Taylor’s Great Aunt and Uncle came to visit for the weekend.  Taylor received her first birthday present – a baiting suit and cover up!  We love it, but it’s a tad too small.  Someone need 18-24 month clothes already!  At least she’ll get use out of the bow for now :)


After a delicious Corn Beef dinner at Mimi’s, we came home for bath time, PJs, and to dye Easter eggs!
