Lizzie loves her pretty dresses and boots.  From what I've heard it's because she likes to look pretty but the boots are easier for playing, jumping, splashing in puddles, or whatever else she needs to do.

Taylor Tuesday

Turning seven means discovering a love for science, wondering how the world works, loving the ability to expand your knowledge by opening a book, building confidence with karate, wanting short hair, loving blue jeans and jean shorts(after years of hating them), wearing shoes with laces that you tie, having several best friends, getting irritated when your little sister wants to hang out with you and your friends, wanting to be a teacher and going to Texas Tech like your Aunt KK to become one, loving green apples, needing corn cut off the cob and apples sliced because your front teeth are missing, loving the outdoors, creating all kinds of new inventions in the craft room, hunting with Daddy, imagining with your little sister, still wanting songs at bedtime from Mom, and just being the sweet girl she is.  I love seeing you grow up Tay!

I started this blog a little while before having Taylor, but having kids really defined this blog.  This is my digital scrapbook of them as little people and my backup in case something happens to all our files of pictures.  For a while I actually did a weekly log of what we were doing and unique things about each kid.  Taylor turned seven and reality hit that I don't feel like I've documented her life like I used to.  She had me read the shutterfly book I made about her birth and I love pouring over each picture.  I loved remembering each moment or trying to recall the parts that are a bit fuzzy since I had just finished having major surgery(a c-section).  Sadly I won't forgot getting sick in front of all my family members(in-laws too) as the spinal tap wore off.  Reliving those sweet memories made me want to rush onto Shutterfly and make each year that I haven't finished yet or sat down to do.  I want to be able to take that visual journey with her anytime she wants and remind her of all the silly, frustrating, embarrassing, and loving things she did as she grew up.  Until then I will settle for this collage to remind me of how my girl has grown over the years.  There are two pictures from when she was three(middle row, left and middle pictures) but the rest are one from each year around her birthday from birthday until seven.

Happy 7th Birthday sweet girl!
