Tuesday, December 15, 2009 (TAYLOR IS 4 YEARS, 7 MONTHS OLD)

It’s been an interesting few months since my last posting. We had a fun Halloween, although Taylor was in the middle of a flu/cold that she couldn’t shake. Despite her malaise, she was really looking forward to Halloween and we couldn’t bear to keep her home. We opted to just go out to a handful of houses so that she could at least show off her costume. She was a cowgirl, with a pink and sparkly gold vest, hat, gauntlets and boots. We strapped her pink Rody horse onto a dolly so we could pull her around while she sat on top. She looked great! As I said, she only hit a few houses, but it’s mid-December now and she’s STILL working her way through the Halloween candy. She had a super fun time and she’s already thinking about what she wants to wear for NEXT Halloween!

One thing that is so wonderful to see is how much Taylor and her cousin, Nathan, adore each other. We have been fortunate to spend a lot of time with him and I’m pleasantly surprised on a daily basis how much they love each other and how much fun they have together. I hope that their relationship stays strong throughout their lives.

We’re almost finished with the house and are hoping to move back in sometime in January. Taylor recently recorded a little video to describe how she wants her room to look and here it is:
