Blog Neglect

Blog... I have missed you! It's been 7 whole days and every day I've thought about you! I've been super busy during the day and I can't seem to stay up past 9pm lately!

Parker and I have been walking the 4 mile creek trail every other day which feels amazing! I love getting out and walking! The very best part is that we walk 2 miles to Starbucks, get a treat, use the potty and turn around and come back. It's the quickest 4 miles when you've got lots to talk about with great friends... and the sbux stop helps too! Parker loves it because he gets to see lots of doggies run by and I bribe him with suckers. The last 2 times I've gone we've seen a deer. Who doesn't love a baby deer?

My picture taking has been at an all time low! Parker had a reaction again to chili pepper and his whole face is covered in a terrible rash. It's been 8 days now and it's better but not gone. Of course we have family pictures being taken Sunday! I hope the company is ready for LOTS of retouching! haha. I FINALLY got Parker's hair cut today! His stranger anxiety has made it super difficult. We've walked out of 3 places. I broke down today and took him to Pigtails and Crewcuts for a $21 haircut. GULP! I'm so glad I did, though. They literally held him down in the airplane until he stopped freaking out. Eventually he caught bubbles and watched Toy Story. I'm SOO glad they didn't let me leave. He did great after his 1-2 minutes battle with the stylist. Speaking of styling.... the cut is great and I'm very pleased but check out this styling....
I can't stop laughing at him. Of course he thinks it's hilarious and laughs right along with me. He has no clue why I'm laughing but he chimes right in.
Guess who will be getting a bath to remove the half bottle of gel in his hair?!  Bahaha. Love him.

Random tidbit... Barney has taught him to sneeze. He walks around the house fake sneezing and laughing at himself. It's hilarious. He did it over and over at dinner with my parents for attention. The second the conversation turned to something other than him, he'd sneeze and we'd all laugh. The silver lining... he uses his sleeve or a napkin to cover it. I can sing the Barney song in my sleep... "Keep your sneeze to yourself. Don't share your germs with anyone else. Get a tissue off the shelf and keep your sneeze to yourself."

Lastly, I have to share my craftings! I've been busy sewing burp cloths, making bows and playing with ribbon.  All things girly! Here are a few pictures of some things I've made so far.

I'll try to be better about updating this! I love my dear blog! Better go clean the house now... that too has been neglected at the expense of long walks, sewing and playdates!


  1. Taylor, your girl accessories and clothes make we wish for a minute that I knew what we are having! It is hard to find alot of cute gender neutral fabric so I have resigned to the fact that I will be heading to JoAnn Crafts soon after the baby is born to feminize or masculinize her/him!

  2. Thanks, Shannon! I couldn't not know! I'm a planner! I'm having too much fun making girl things! I also know how little time I'd have with 2 little ones to sew bedding! Hopefully someone can give you a few solid hours off baby duty when he/she comes so you can make it. If not, there are lots of great sellers on etsy who can make it for you. Of course, a baby doesn't really need a nursery at first anyways, so I guess as long as you have the furniture, you could always decorate and paint later. It would just be much harder with a newborn AND a 3 year old! haha!
