I loooove this video!

Shelby finally showed some interest in Haylie and Haylie just looked star-struck whenever she saw Shebly nearby. Pretty sure Shelby could have poked her in the eye and Haylie would have still looked in awe at her. ;) Such cute cousins! I'm pretty sure they're best friends already.

Taylor Family reunion 2010

I'm a little behind with posting about this but I had to share the cute pictures I have from the Taylor family reunion we had in August!
Haylie had a rough time on this visit. She struggled with all the chaos of being in an airport, flying on a plane, having her feeding and napping schedules interrupted, lots of different car rides, staying in a strange place and meeting sooo many new people! It was quite overwhelming. We got her doing better by the end of the trip and she started warming up to her big family! The Taylor cousins were so cute with her, they just wanted to play with her so much! We had a great time seeing the WHOLE Taylor family. It was so great to have everyone in the same place and to spend time with them all.

The whole, entire Taylor family!

Our little family!

Haylie went swimming for the first time and LOVED it!
Here is Haylie with her sweet cousin!

Haylie was splashing in the water and it was splashing into her face. She didn't seem to mind at all! She was having so much fun.

We got her this floaty toy for the pool but she wasn't quite big enough for it. She still loved playing with the little toys.

The three of us playing in the water.

Out for a sunday walk in her stroller!

I went for a ride on the beach cruiser! It was funny to see the boys in the family riding this pink bike around. :)

Our little "cupie" doll.

Haylie with her Nana! Haylie was nice enough to let some family members hold her for brief periods of time while we were there. ;)

Haylie and her cousin cruisin' down the canyon together. They both fell sound asleep soon after I snapped this picture.

On the plane ride home!
She did quite well on the plane rides. She's such a good girl!

Haylie was glad to be home in her own house. It was so sweet to see that she knew her house and bed. :)
We miss our big, wild Taylor family so much!!

Before and after.

We returned home last night to a FRESHLY PAINTED HOUSE!!!

The painters had just begun a big apartment job a little while ago so they wouldn't be able to paint our house for a few weeks. We were so bummed! We left for California thinking that we would finally get it painted hopefully pretty soon after we got back. As we pulled up to our house late last night, I looked for our still ugly brown garage door and realized it was a different color!
The painters, without calling to notify us, came and painted! What a great welcome home present. :)
It was hard to tell what it looked like in the dark last night but we ran out in our pjs this morning to check it out. We looove it!
So, here is our wonderful home's before and after shot.

Before, in all its brown and orange glory. :/

After! (notice the big, ugly antenna is gone, also)

Now we are moving on to updating the inside. New interior paint and carpet are coming up!

This is for you, momma!

Every time I tell my mom that I took some pictures or a video of Haylie she says, "I like pictures" or "I like videos". So, this is for you, mom, because I know how much you like videos of little Haylie! ;)
I put her hair in a ponytail for the first time this day. It was pretty darn cute.
This is the extent of Haylie's mobility for now. :)
