Baby Dedication and Easter

This past Sunday we had baby dedication in our church. 
We were joined by 4 other couples and their babies. 
What a blessing it is to have a church family that supports you in raising godly children. 

After church we all went to my parents for our Easter gathering.
After a delicious lunch we had some visiting time and puppies came in for a visit.
My brother's dog had 5 of the cutest puppies, they are just like little teddy bears.

Samers! :)

 Hailey and a puppy.

To much cuteness!!

In the end they were all laying around Taylor while she slept. :)

After going for a walk we came in and had peanuts. This kept the kids busy for a long time. 

Cracking peanut shells is hard work! :)

After Taylor's nap we took the cousins downstairs for some pictures!
Our kids, my heart is overflowing!


All the girl cousins.

Everyone! What a cute bunch of kids! :)

2 more little ones on the way! My sister in law Yvonne is due in August and my sister Raechelle is due in 2 weeks.

Then we headed back up and coloured pictures.

A random picture of the guys. :)

After supper we had fondue. Brendan has right in the middle of the action!

Kisses for the baby.

After cleaning up we played games. 
It was a really great gathering, its always fun getting caught up with everyone and just relaxing and being together.

We are so blessed to have another little one to dedicate to God. 
We love you Taylor Brianne, we pray for God's will to be done in your life.

Taylor Brianne 3 Months

Well its been a whole month since I last blogged, oops!
But I can say that we have made the most of this past month; we have watched Daddy play hockey, and curling and had great fun relaxing at home together.  We have enjoyed some really beautiful weather, with most of the snow melting; and then we've had the snow come back again. :) We have been healthy and we have been sick; most of all we have just enjoyed this time of life, with the baby growing and changing every day its a great reminder that time goes by fast!

Taylor started sleeping through the night at 2 months and 5 days old!! I have never had a baby do this for me so early, it was super nice!! Alas she got a cold, it was so sad to watch her :( And since then she has been coughing at night which isn't the greatest for sleeping, but thankfully she is on the mend and the past 3 nights she has been doing great again!!
Taylor loves the swing and watching the kids play. She is always waiting for someone to look at her so that she can smile at them.
She is a very happy baby, talking a lot and very attentive, she notices everything.
Taylor weighs 13 1/2 pounds and is wearing size 3 month clothes. She loves to be able to see whats going on, and if she is crying you can usually get her to stop by walking around so she can see new things. :)
We have been so blessed with this little one, she is very loved!
