Taylor's First Birthday!

So we had a birthday part for tay's first birthday and invited friends and family over. Some couldn't show, but it was so much fun to watch her play with the other little kids and just visit with our loved ones. We bought her cake from the cake shoppe, and it was worth every penny...Fit for a perfect little ladybug! She wasnt all that into smashing it on her face or getting it on her hands....she is quite the little girl. She was decked out in her ladybug outfit and the decorations were from 1st Wishes. Im still working on the thank you notes but Ill get them finished eventually =) My grandmother and aunt also surprised us by showing up from sacramento, it was So good to see them and Im so glad they could make it....Taylor had everyone there that she loves and it was such a perfect day!

I cant believe my little girl is one already. I cant believe Im five months prego! We find out on thursday what were having, and then can really start getting things ready. Im really glad that were having two babies so close together, they will grow up best friends and always be in school together, which will be awesome for us, get everything done at the same time!

I recently started going back for my BSN in Science of Nursing, one night a week, one paper a week, and some adult conversation with my starbucks. I really , really love it, and I love my classmates too. I cant waite until its done, and Im so glad Im doing it now rather than later. It opens up so many doors for my career and in the future too....Job Security! Lol.....

I will post again when we know what were having!

So Taylor's First Birthday is right around the corner, next friday. I cant believe she's actually going to be a year old! Seems like just yesterday I was laying in bed with her on my chest, so tiny she fit perfectly. Now she is so big, walking and running at times in circles around our house! She is becoming quite the little princess, but rough houses with her daddy like no other. She's very girlie, and is oh so content with lounging in her pottery barn chair while watching her movies. I miss her when I am working, but I think it's important for us to have some time away and experience adult converstation. My sister takes care of her, and she is so good with her. When I go to pick her up, she comes running full force saying " mama! mama!", its the cutest thing I swear. She gets so excited to see Joe too, its the sweetest thing. He is such a good father, loves her with every cell in his body, and helps me so much. Our marriage has hit some rough spots since having a baby, but I think that everyone goes through that when life changes so drastically. Its hard to balance work, love, household, school, and baby. Sometimes something has to give, and you just have to work at it everyday and make sure you still love each other, and most importantly, are IN love with each other.

So, in other news, back in october we found out that, yes, we ARE EXPECTING ANOTHER BABY! Im now almost four and a half months along, due date is in June. I cant believe were adding another one so soon, but we wanted to start trying again when Taylor was still really young, so they would be close in age, and we would be young parents. I would love to be done by the time were 30, so family trips and vaca's are possible, and diapers are out of the way! Were very excited, and find out what were having Feb 4th. After that we will start planning the nursery, the babies will have to share a room, but I have researched both, girl and boy, and we can make it adorable either way. This pregnancy is SO different than taylor. I have gained half a pound so far....( that is really good for me!) and have felt better this time, with the exception of a few mornings, than when I do when Im not pregnant. So we are thinking its a boy =) but you never know. We will reveal names when we know what we are having !

I am still working Mon, Wed, and Fri, and am enjoying my weekends with my family. Here are some pictures , and there will be more coming of Tay's first bday party! Ladybug theme with balloons, cake, friends and family =)
