Well Ellah's been doing good. She's up to 10 lbs now, eating like an animal all day long. She's really been getting used to being held. She has a hard time falling asleep now without being held-thanks to mama. When she gets up in the morning she gets pretty fussy, but all she wants to do is cuddle with us in bed, also a wonderful habit learned from mama. Oh well, we'll see how those habits play out in the near and distant future. It's a ball though, and we're loving every minute of it. Getting more excited by the day we take off for school.

Well Ellah was blessed and it was amazing. I cried like I knew I would. The best thing of all was that my family came, it means so much to Jeremiah, Ellah and I for them to be involved, thanks to them, we love you. Well 5 months till we are in Hawaii and we could not be more ready!!

Oh and we are finally settling on the baby shower, hahaha, it has been canceled twice but this Saturday the 28th at 2:00pm, get ahold of me if you need directions. Well that is about it for now. Ellah is doing great growing like a weed but we love it. Hope everyone is doing well!!

Oh Happy Days....

Today was great, we were all able to go to church as a was amazing! Next week Ellah is going to be blessed, so anybody and everybody, next Sunday at 10am! This last week at least has been crazy. I came down with this horrible virus leaving us back in the Hospital twice and more tests, once again my husband is amazing and wonderful, he was the wonder dad again and took care of her mostly!! He also put on a surprise birthday party for me, it was great!! He blind folded me and took our family for a drive and untied me and Ellah was holding a ring in her hands for me, the cutest thing in the world. But it was so nice to have everyone at our house to share my huge 25th birthday, hahaha.
Ellah is doing great, weighing 8lbs now, I asked the doctor when do we need to put her on a diet, she is a little piggy! She scared Jeremiah so bad. She burped and then instantly it came out of the other end and he swore it went through her clothes and blankets and then said your turn to change her...I was laughing pretty hard. Oh and we are officially moving to Hawaii in August, Miah is going to school for pre-dental, bascially heading down a long road. We are so happy to be leaving, officially being able to be a family, having that alone time and start our own traditions...
Hope everyone is doing well and we'll see you next Sunday!!

The Taylor Brood Has Arrived Home!!

Well we made it...home sweet home. It is so nice to finally have our family in our own home. We are still very busy, since everything was last minute we did not have really any time to get things together at home. So that is what we have been trying to do and well get all the paperwork with the birth certificate and SS# all going. She is still too small to breast feed every time and for one feeding so I am pumping alot, while feeding and then putting her to bed. It is all a cycle, feed, change, pump, clean, and then put her to sleep...but I LOVE IT!! I will have to say I can't wait till I don't have to pump any more. I am counting down the weeks till I can run again, oh I am so excited. Recovery is still going but well near the end. That getting cut in half thing is really not so fun. But she was so worth it.
Jeremiah is back to work now and hates leaving his little girl and wife I am sure, hahaha. He comes home and as soon as he walks in the door, his eyes light up at the site of his new family, it is such a wonderful thing to see. He is such a good father, hands on all the way. We have learned many diaper lessons so far...I have been pooped on at 5am and he has changed multiple blow out diapers, which are his fault anyway, due to not putting the diaper on right. Ellah still has gas like her daddy...I am sad to say I will be the mom with the stinky kid in school. But with her being cute as a button, the boys will overlook the smell.
Ellah had her first doctor appt. on Tuesday and she is growing so fast. Everyone says she is so small and Jeremiah and I look at her and think she is so big is amazing. She is now over a pound over her birth weight, fantastic. She also has little chubby cheeks and her little thighs are getting some fat on them. The doctor has told us we need to wait a few more weeks for Ellah to visit and for bummed us out because I want to take her out and show her off...we can't help she is such an angel. But since she is so small still, she needs to get a little stronger and all those germs are not so good. So to all of you waiting...just a few more weeks.
Our nieces and nephews love their new little cousin, Emmarie loves to help with everything. She is just so interested with everything from how does she get from here to there, breast feeding, she even offered her Polly Pocket clothes for Ellah to wear, hahaha. I love it, pure inocence of a child. I hope everyone is having a good time and enjoying life, as we are!!
