I haven't been able to post lately because I've been super busy, but I thought I'd pop on really quick and post a few pictures and tell y'all what's been going on in the epic adventures of Mr. Taylor.
Taylor is now walking around all over the place and is enjoying getting into anything and everything. It's great that he has mastered the art of locomotion, and he loves playing with bigger kids now that he can at least attempt to keep up with them.
He's also been enjoying the outdoors more than ever, which has made me very nervous for the quickly-approaching cold weather. I think Tay and I are going to go bonkers in the winter time when we'll be cooped up in the house for the majority of the day.
Taylor especially loves being outside because that's where the trucks, motorcycles, airplanes, and helicopters are. If he hears or sees a plane in the sky he'll point up to it until long after it's passed overhead. I was thinking it would be cute to decorate his room with vintage model planes and old maps. Maybe some day...
Our little tyke has also loved the recent onslaught of rain, oohing and ahhing at the window every time thunder rumbles. He also tried on the raincoat Grandpa gave him earlier this year. It was so darn cute on him and I can't wait to get him some galoshes to match.
That pretty much sums up what's been happening in Mr. Tay's world. Here are a couple more cute pictures - one of him in the bath and the other of him eating one of his very favorite summertime foods.
As for me, I've been insanely busy and I'm surprised I've been able to manage so many things at once. On top of trying to keep my house clean, dishes washed, and laundry done, and kid happy, I've been working on starting an online business selling vintage clothes, continuing Irish dance, giving plasma twice a week, and trying to maintain a social life by going to playgroups, playdates, and hanging out with my neighbor. It seems like a lot to handle - and it is - but honestly I've never been happier. I love not being anti-social anymore, and it also feels good to be contributing financially to our family.
Despite the crazy state my life is in at the moment (in more ways than one), I'm so thankful for everything I have been given. Lately I've been going to bed at night with my face hurting from smiling so much. My hubby and I have so much fun together, and I absolutely adore my son and all the sweet and funny things he does all day. I also love that I can spend so much time with my mom and my great friends and neighbors. I feel so blessed!
