Movin' and weddin'

We are finally wholly in Olathe! My dad came with us and moved all of our furniture back up to Kansas! Bless him...

We got to stay with Grandma Sue and Grandpa Bill and swim in their pool! Andie loved it so much... she got  floor burns on her toes from the pool floor. :( Mom fail. I felt ter.ib.le

Highlights of our trip:

  • Going to our first wedding (congrats Chad & Sarah)! It was beautiful. Daddy was in the wedding, so we hung with the rest of the Taylor clan. We loved seeing our aunts and uncles!

    Aunt Natalie entertains as it's getting close to bedtime (read: 20 minutes past her bedtime and then she wouldn't fall asleep until 10:30 ladies and gentlemen....)
  • Swimming in our new floaty! Papa gave us a water bottle which became the best chewing toy in the world! We loved being able to walk in the water! 
     We loved feeling the water on our head... silly

     Note: Papa got a sunburn in the exact shape of what is showing above. He loved driving home & moving furniture the next day
  • Getting to see the Browns! We were hoping Annabel would make her entrance into the world before so we could meet her, but she decided to come the day after we left! Little stinker. We enjoyed watching our future husband's bravery in the pool, though :)

 around this time, Brent says something like "The water only hits you there?! Let's walk and see how far we can both go..."

 the Grandpa's were a little pooped. Duh... nap time with Andalicious (gross).

I leave you with something I call "Andie Time".... oh road trips. Only fun for about 20 minutes.
Then all the cheetos are gone.

5 months old

AndieLove.... you are 5 months (and a couple days) old!

That means I've had 5 months to workout. Sorry I just started. 

You are a handful these days, and I'm sure to only become more of one!

Things you like:

  • Grabbing ANYTHING in front of you! Every cup/bottle that is in front of you is going to be aggressively brought straight to your mouth. I'm a little worried you can actually get stuff out of my camelbak. 
  • Your toes. Of course. #1 favorite toy. 
  • Napping in your bouncer still. Not sure when I'll have to break this, but you still fit and you fall asleep likethisfast in it, so.... not complaining yet! 
  • You don't mind wearing hairbows or being in your carseat (things I figured she would struggle with) so I thank my stars for both of those. Because both are necessary. Especially that first.
  • Cuddling & Reaching. These are so cute. I love when you reach for me people and nuzzle right on in. 
  • The songs "I'm bringing home my baby bumble bee" and "BINGO"
Things you don't like:

  • the sun. Every walk/jog is a struggle. I kind of think you're allergic to it. Thank God for trees.
  • shoes. Hate 'em. We just hate 'em. 
  • Strangers. Sorry y'all... give her time.
  • Rolling into things. That's right people... I said rolling. Hello, baby gates.

3 years

I feel like we're officially married.
3 whole years under our belt. We have now been married longer than we dated... that's kind of special, right?

I don't mean to write some mushy how-much-i-love-my-"hubby" post. But here it is. 

In pictures.

(Note: I wish I had the first picture I sent my mom of him & me. We were cuddling on the couch watching a movie... baha, whoops. Oh, the things we don't do anymore. I mean, what? We cuddle all day everyday with our baby in between...)

our awkward Christmas picture after we got engaged... clearly you know who I belong to now... 

representing at Nationals

don't ask me why I was acting all sassy at the altar

And this is how we celebrated: 
Jason put notes on everything I would use/see... those are 2/5 pictured. Also, the perfect "simple Kansas girl" bouquet is what I call that. Also... we got each other our ... get this... FIRST pair of Sperry's. I know. We both died and went to Heaven with how comfy they are. 
We saw 'Now You See Me' which is my new fav, but most importantly, we were away from Andie for exactly 3 hours. During bedtime. I about died and so did the babysitter (sorry Mom).

Here's to 77 more years love!

Thursday, June 6, 2013


This is the craziest June, y'all. I mean, it hasn't gotten above the 70's here. Wuuuuut the.

So we've really been enjoying going outside as much as we can before we get wimpy because it's "too hot".
I can't believe this baby child is almost 5 months old. She is cracking me up so much lately! Personality, I tell ya, is something she is not missing out on!

 I look like a child reading a book to another child.

Also, Shatto Farms, do you need a new ad? 

Say hi to Andie's giant hand.

Happy ThursdayalmostFriday!
