Taylor turns 9!

Today my baby girl turned 9! I can't believe she is nine years old, where has the time gone? It seems like we just brought her home from the hospital :) I remember just sitting around staring at her little face and praying we didn't mess her up. So far we haven't :)

Her birthday week started off pretty rough and not what she was expecting but after lots of resting she is finally feeling much more like herself. I am so glad because I hate seeing one of my babies feeling so bad.

She went to school for a full day and was able to control her pain with only mortin however needed a dose of loritab at bedtime. She was really wanting to go today because it was Grandparent's Day and they had a special lunch planned for the grandparents. She was able to have all 4 grandparents be with her today. And managed to make it the whole day.

Tonight we celebrated her birthday (and Nana's too as her birthday is Monday) with dinner at Olive Garden. Both sets of Grandparents as well as Aunt Hope and Uncle Chris were able to be with us. After a wonderful dinner we finished it off with a chocolate cake with butter cream icing, yummy! Taylor received so many presents....clothes, new earrings, crafts, books and a new Webkinz! She is also getting a new scooter and having a bowling party in a few weeks.

I am so proud of now big my little girl is becoming. She is a joy to be around. She is sensitive and loving. She still loves to cuddle and sometimes even crawls in bed with me at night :) She is a wonderful daughter and I am so blessed to be called her mommy. I can't wait to see what wonderful things God does with her life!

Happy Birthday sweet Taylor!

(I have pictures to post but they need to be gone through. Hopefully I will get them on sometime next week. We are leaving tomorrow to go camping with some friends! Another one of the ways we are celebrating Taylor's birthday)

We're so glad Taylor is doing better. It was great seeing her playing around at Cove Park yesterday. I hope her tests over the next 11 weeks turn out well and this problem will be over with!
Happy Birthday to a very sweet young lady.
